"When Words Fail, Music Speaks." -Hans Christian Andersen
Kevin is a talented young violinist graduating from high school this spring. I've had the immense pleasure of watching him grow up his whole life. Coming from a musical family, it was no surprise that he started playing the violin at the ripe age of three. It was inspiring to watch his technique and artistry evolve over the through the years. With his talented, lovely piano playing mother, Annette, they shared their special talents on my wedding day, such a very special memory for me. Every time I hear him play it fills my soul with joy!
"Music is the social act of communication among people,
a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is." -Malcolm Arnold
I've had the opportunity of knowing Kevin from Day 1. He is always been an extremely gifted violinist who's talents I used during my own wedding ceremony. Kevin is a senior at Clear Lake High School and met friends Christopher, Adam, and Zahi in the school's esteemed orchestra program. They quickly found that their friendship translated into collaboration and they formed the Varsity String Quartet.
"Creativity is intelligence having fun." -Albert Einstein
Sometimes I just pinch myself- I love what I do! My clients are always so creative and fun. No matter if their photography needs are personal or professional, I love meeting my clients ideas with my vision. My most recent session brought me to the New Jersey shore photographing Michael and Marisa in their home studio!
Michael is the Owner/Creative Director at Asano Designs and Marisa is a Health and Wellness Coach and both were looking for shots of them working in their creative space. They were so wonderful opening their beautiful home to me- their home studio flooded in natural light, color, and creativity! I felt like we instantly clicked and had a total blast as I photographed shots for their businesses. I'm looking forward to their next session this spring including their three adorable children for family portraits!
In preparation for her ballet auditions for summer programs, Zoe was in need of some headshots and portraits! Years ago, Zoe took a tap masterclass of mine at Feijoo Ballet School, I was excited to reconnect with her take these shots for her. After we captured the traditional first arabesque and close ups, we spent the rest of the time playing around in the studio for some fun dance portraits. Zoe is a beautiful dancer with lots of spunk- excited to see where life takes her!!

Where do I begin about this awesome family? I fell in love with Scott last year photographing his headshots and I loved that mom and sister joined in for the fun this time around. They were interested in getting individual "personality" shots to use for modeling, audition headshots, and social media. The kids were absolutely adorable, making my job so easy and I loved that Becca donned her favorite fur coat and flowing skirt for her shots- isn't she gorgeous?! We enjoyed the beautiful weather and atmosphere at Bay Area Park for their session. Looking forward to the next one with this beautiful family!
