I was widowed many years ago. My children were all under five years old. A few years later I went on a mission looking in my home for photo’s of each one of my daughters with their dad. As well of him with all of them together.
Luckily I have had a camera in my hand’s (on and off) since the 5th grade. I found enough photograph’s for each of them to have their own album as well as a family one. Which helped me heal tremendously. This is why I am extremely passionate about photography.
I want to be able to capture moments in time. Whether its your child’s birth (yes I mean the the way it sounds) or the first few days of his/her life, first birthday etc. I am a true believer in having photos taken often.
I am grateful that I have a lot of photos of my husband with our children; it mean’s everything to them and to me.
I was born in Brooklyn, raised on Staten Island and I am now living in Monmouth County New Jersey. I truly love it here.
I also love to be in South West Florida, on Sanibel and Captiva Islands I can’t put into words how much that place means to me. It was our first family vacation all those years ago. I basically fell in love with the simple calm peacefull way of life and we never left, NOT for long amounts of time anyway.
As for me, I am honest to a fault, sometimes too much. It’s the New Yorker in me. As a photographer I do it because I love it. I am passionate about it. I can remember my dad being out with a Minolta film camera taking photos of icicles off tree’s and I became mesmerized.
