I was born and raised in Somers, Connecticut and graduated from Somers High School in the Class of 2000. My long time passion for photography accelerated as a junior in high school when I began working for a local photographer. After high school I decided to pursue this passion and attend an intensive program at Hallmark Institute of Photography in Turners Falls, Massachusetts.
During those ten months I studied all aspects of commercial and portrait photography as well as curriculum in business and graphics. Upon graduating in 2001, I went on to work more closely with other local photographerrs in different areas of expertise until I decided that my passions lay with people and capturing those precious moments in their lives.
At the age of nineteen I took the biggest step towards the future and opened my own studio. With the support of family and friends I have grown this business from the ground up and am continuing to expand upwards to offer the most I can to my customers.
