"We love because it's the only true adventure." -Nikki Giovani
Allison is one of the most beautiful people I know. Growing up I always wanted to be just like her and her older sister, Laura. They were the epitome of elegance, not to mention they had the best personality; funny, witty, clever! As we progressed into adulthood they remained role models to me, but also became my friends. Its crazy to think back to our young ballerina days... Laura and I are now married and soon enough Allison will be joining the club. Soon after she and Brian got engaged last year she approached me and said "I don't have any wedding plans made yet but I know I want YOU to do our engagement portraits!"

If you've followed my work for the last few years, I'm sure you'll recognize this gorgeous red head, soul sista of mine. I had no idea of the adventures I was in for when Nikol and I's friendship was born 4 years ago! In addition to her incredible performing and choreography talents, she is also an inspired Life Coach empowering artists and creatives. We've collaborated on several shoots now for her business, Zen Red NYC, each one growing in our artistic ability and collaborative trust. Her most recent shoot took us to Fort Tilden Park and Far Rockaway Beach in Queens, NY.
I have the pleasure of photographing headshots with so many talented actors, ones that are just starting out to ones that have been going at it for 20+ years. I had the recent pleasure of meeting Violet who is at the beginning of her acting career. First headshot sessions are so special!
Recently Alyssa was in NYC for some college tours and while she was in town we snuck in some time for her latest headshot session!

Meeting this fantastic couple was truly serendipitous. Rob and Kim moved to Jersey three years ago on the exact same week as myself and my husband. I met them on my first Sunday at church and almost instantly knew we'd all be good friends. Kim has become one of my closest friends and Rob and my husband, Josh, are like two peas in a pod. They really are some of the best people I know. My latest mini session with them was absolutely wonderful...
Loves: my husband, golden age movie musicals, red lipstick, fall leaves, rainy mornings, dressing up, jazz music, yellow tulips, tap dancing, and taking your photos (yes YOU!)
