Welcome to my website! Here you'll find a sample of my recent photo sessions & photobook creations, and the interesting stories behind them. Please visit regularly to see what's new, and if you really want to make my day, please leave a comment or two.


I'm a Wife. Mama to twins. Lover of photography, vintage anything, driving with the windows down, and cake.

I’ve had a passion for the arts since I was a little girl. I’ve graduated from a Fine Arts Academy in Europe prior to migrating to the States. Once here I also got a degree in Science which I'm currently using. I am a music lover and an antiques collector (fund’s permitting) and have always adored photography.

Once I had my two children my passion for photography became a personal quest to become proficient with a camera. I’ve been at it ever since.

I embrace ordinary moments in motherhood and life, alongside with the big milestones. And, I snap – pic after pic, storing memories in a jar to be mine forever. My ‘memory jars’ are the photobooks I create. It is like bottled happiness for me. I can open a bottle & take a whiff anytime I want.

The Latest:

Brrrr, its cold outside!

It is Decemb-rrr! Temps have dropped, and mornings are crispy. It's time to get that Christmas tree up and decorated! Can't wait! I love this time of the year!

Summer is come and gone...

I always loved the care-free nature of the summer days. Oh the possibilities! I'm so sad that now that is coming to an end, and we are almost at the new school year's start.

The new shoes, the smell of library books & crayons, and the dreaded homework...Here we go again!

Spring is here!

What's not to like about SPRING - we are ditching the heavy layers for breezy shorts & tees, the sun is shining  (at least on more days than not), the birds are chirping and the flowers are blooming. 
Get out there and witness the power of Spring!

New Year

Happy New Year! I know I'm a little late, but I hope everyone had a nice start to 2013 and is going to follow their resolutions wholeheartedly... 

I don't have any big ones. I'm just hoping for three simple things: a little less crying, a little more sleep & smiles that last for hours. I'm gonna try to make that happen!

Being Thankful

Today I'm thankful for all that is given to me - family I love, good friends, roof over my head. I'm also thankful for the opportunities I've had to capture memories for others, and make memories in the process. I am thankful that despite the down-times, I still find inspiration in the people I meet and the sites I see - I hope to never lose that. I am thankful for my husband, who supports me in anything I do; my children, who never seize to amaze me; and, my life. I'm hopeful that it will only get better with time.
Happy Thanksgiving!
