I approach photography with a romantic, fine art sensibility. My imagery is understated yet evocative, resulting from clear and polished creative direction that elicits light-filled, painterly portraits. My use of fresh and simple composition, and natural light has evolved from a deep love and respect for the old masters - Rembrandt, Vermeer, Botticelli. I am a fiercely dedicated medium format film photographer and my creative process is involved, industrious and detailed.
Over the last ten years, my work has taken me to over twenty countries on six different continents. I have been named a top photographer by Martha Stewart Weddings, and have received accolades from Rangefinder Magazine, PDN and the Framed Network. My work has been featured on the covers of numerous international bridal publications, including Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country Weddings, Brides Magazine, Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart, The Boston Globe and New York Magazine.
I also have an active role in educating photographers on the art and craft of shooting film. My written work includes “The Master Guide to Fine Art Wedding Photography,” now now in its third edition, “The Portraiture Reference Guides,” a 3 book series on natural and expressive portraiture and composition, and The Focused Guides, advanced instruction and methodology. Upcoming conference appearances can be found on my press page.
I am a native New Yorker living in Southern California. When I am not working, I can be found renovating a hundred-year-old home with my husband, two rambunctious little boys, and a silly french bulldog named Gatsby.
