A few weeks ago Bill and I traveled to Tulsa for a maternity photo session and Bethia and Joel’s baby shower. I had the honor of designing the invites and some of the printables (as well as helping plan it). I love party planning. It’s in my blood. It gets me excited. So when Bethia […]
I come from a very talented and creative family. They never cease to impress and amaze me with their individual skills and ability to create. My dad is a wiz with cars and does body work plus he can pretty much build or fix anything. My step dad is a medical illustrator. My brother is […]
I remember being very young at the Italian festival in Buffalo, NY (where my parents are from) and someone gave my dad a cigar to celebrate a baby’s birth. I don’t remember who’s birth they were celebrating, but this stuck in my mind. So from pretty much the day we found out we were pregnant […]
Working in the photography industry over the years has produced many friends in the industry. These are friends I hold very dear to my heart. We build each other up, bounce business ideas off each other, strengthen each other and photograph each others’ families. We share an art form and I think in some ways […]
Sometimes I’m asked to photograph really weird things. And while my first love is custom portrait photography, I do love a photographic challenge and a change of subject matter always tends to inspire me in some way.

Yes this is way late. This post is incredibly overdue. But you know what isn’t over due? My baby, she came on her due date. Impressed? You should be. Sorry, it’s 2:00am. My brain wanders at 2:00am. Anyways, to the matter at hand, our baby shower… You see we never really had a wedding shower […]
So I’m doing dishes, Issa wakes up from a nap and is screaming, I grab her and the doorbell rings. The water is still running in the kitchen sink. I open the door and it is a 3 year old little girl, alone. She starts to just…come inside my house, pulling open the screen door […]
Adjusting to life as a mother of a newborn has been anything but easy. Yet another one of those surprises no one really prepares you for, or maybe they just can’t. People tell you, “Oh your life is going to change”, “Things will never be the same”, etc. but they almost seem to say it […]
My baby girl, Issabella Rosemari came right on time March 9th at 6:25 PM, her due date. Hopefully she’ll be just as punctual through the rest of her life. I’ve got tons to share from photos to her nursery and more but for now I’ll be taking a break from the blog to soak in […]
