My goal as a mom and as a photographer of families with children is to make sure photos exist of our everyday lives. Whether our children are newborns, toddlers, young children, or adolescents -- the time they spend in our homes is precious and priceless.Read More
Photos are important, yes. But one day, they won't just be important. They'll be absolutely everything.Read More
When I think back to my own childhood summers, I have such wonderful memories. The sun, the sand. The parks, the museums. Bathing suits, flip flops. Playing with friends, visiting family. Family vacations and day trips. And, of course, the never-ending excitement that existed in my own backyard.Read More
For the longest time, for all the while I've been living outside of my parents' home, I didn't have any photos hanging on the walls. I remember one time, I must have been about 25 or so, when my friend Kim paid me a visit.Read More
We just got home from vacation yesterday. I mean, just walked in the door last night around dinnertime. I'm up to my eyeballs in laundry, and I'm so bone tired that I can hardly type this.
My family and I, along with some in-laws and extended relatives, spent 12 days between Vancouver and Alaska, and it was without question the vacation of a lifetime.
Sometimes we're so focused on taking pictures of our family that we forget to take pictures of our home.

But finally, earlier this year, we managed to find a date that worked, and the stars aligned and everyone remained healthy, and what happened when I arrived can be seen in the photos herein.Read More
If you live anywhere near Bergen County, New Jersey, then I have to ask: is today a beautiful day or what? I mean, it's like movie beautiful. It's beach beautiful. It's open the window and smell the fresh air beautiful. I'm not sure they make days more beautiful by this one.Read More
...school is over!
And I just can't believe it. My oldest child has two days left in Kindergarten. My youngest, two days left in her first year of preschool.
And me, I'm already crying.Read More

My mornings usually begin with one or both of you in my bed beside me. Sometimes you wake up before me, and I’m roused by your sweet little hands touching my cheek. Sometimes I wake first, and I try to sneak downstairs for a quiet cup of coffee by myself.Read More
Every month in 2018, I am participating in a photography project with a group of extremely thoughtful and talented photographers. Each photographer makes a series of 10 photos in a single day, and each photographer shares their series on the 10th day of every month. The goal? To tell a story.Read More
