Favorite food: All food, but if I had to pick it would be Chinese.
Biggest fear: Bugs (ask me about that time I left my kids while running away from one... I mean I am an awesome mom, but I HATE bugs.)
Spouse: Mark :) we went to college together, but didn't date until 2008… which is way after college ended.
Kids: Twin girls, Anna and Avery are my life, their smiles make me want to run and grab my camera... their laughs make my heart sing with love.
What people probably don't know about me: I'm Chinese, Italian and German, born in New Jersey and am a closet gamer... I love to veg out and destress this way... I love science fiction, puzzles, crosswords and am an all around huge nerd.
My perfect client: A paying one.... Just kidding! Sort of. My favorite clients are the ones who ask a ton of questions up front and are willing to prepare for the session... lets talk outfits, location, tell me about your kids, a funny joke, I don't care. Photography is an intimate process and I want to get to know you, not just the names of your kids and that you like candid photos.
Why are you a photographer: Because I have this insatiable desire to capture those smiles and laughs that I mentioned above... I can't tell you the feeling I get when a dad is chasing a son and the laugh that is produced when the dad catches him and lifts him up. Those moments are so special and I want to bottle them up for people to have forever.
The other stuff that is supposed to be on the about me section but is much less interesting: I am a wedding, newborn, family photographer. My love for people, relationships and photography create an experience that will make you feel cherished, unique and most importantly, natural. Every step of our journey will identify your family's love, humor and tenderness. I have a bachelors a degree in communications and fine art from NIU.
