I specialize in lifestyle and travel lifestyle photography. I not only shoot in and around the streets of the city, but also in apartments, shops, museums, restaurants, parks - anywhere and everywhere my clients FEEL happy, whether they're families, couples, or commercial. Finding places that make people feel happy, as well as creating memories while we shoot, is what makes our time together fun. And that is what makes for great photos!
- When I'm not taking photos, I love trying to experience and explore every inch of the city by foot, frequently with food destinations as my guide! Usually I'm with my kids, or have girlfriends in tow, which makes it even more fun. The city is so walkable, it feels like the adventures are never-ending!
- I can't live without sugar!
- My friends tell me I am full of energy, super-sarcastic, an early-riser, and always on the hunt for ice cream and/or carbs. I'm a complete minimalist, a cheapskate, and I'm absolutely terrified of moths.
Favourite Place to Shoot in New York City
Central Park, the Upper West Side and Lincoln Center, and the Flatiron District are some of my favourite areas - I love using food trucks, shops, and even taxis to tell stories about your time in the city!
