I’m very excited to share that I have purchased a new camera!
For the past 6 years I’ve been using the first DSLR I purchased, a Canon Rebel T2i. It has definitely served me well, but an upgrade was necessary. Canon’s new 6D Mark ii is a lovely addition to my equipment. I can’t wait to use it more and really see what I can do with it.
Here’s a shot from last night at Sunken Meadow:
Prints available here!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather yesterday. Unexpectedly I had another crazy week and weekend. I am really hoping to get out and shoot soon so please hang on and I promise to have some new photos ready to show you all!
Hello everyone! It’s been a crazy week so I apologize for not posting last week. Summer has officially begun and I’m excited to share what I’ve been working on and what my future plans are.
I had the opportunity to photograph my friends for their engagement photos! Here’s a preview from their shoot.
I collaborated with Island Strong for a fun print and t-shirt giveaway over the weekend. They do a giveaway every Saturday so definitely check them out on Instagram to catch the next one!
I have a few planned shoots coming up that I’m really excited for. A friend of mine is launching her makeup line later this year, and I have an Etsy shop owner who needs some images of the jewelry she sells. I’ll be sure to share those when they are completed.
I’m also planning on visiting Lavender by the Bay here on Long Island to photograph the lavender fields in a couple weeks, weather permitting. I missed this last year so I hope I can make there before the blooms are harvested.
I hope everyone has a great week and thank you for reading! 🙂

Last weekend I spent sunset at Robert Moses and got lucky with some really gorgeous light. I’ll be sharing those photos in next week’s post! Below is one of my favorites from that day.
There’s no doubt that images have become one of the most powerful methods of communication in today’s world. They are used for social media, websites, blog posts, marketing material and more. Hiring a photographer to create professional imagery will set your blog, brand or business apart from the others.
Here are 5 reasons why:
1. Product Photography
Whether it’s done in a studio setting or a natural environment that fits your brand, one of the most crucial aspects of selling your product is how it is displayed to a potential buyer. The better a product or service looks, the better it will sell.
2. Portraits & Headshots
The way you present yourself is a reflection upon your brand. A professional portrait or headshot is a must to give your social media and website visitors a good first impression. If you’re a blogger or active social media user, book several shoots throughout the year and generate a constant flow of new and original content for your followers.
3. Location Photos
Have photos taken of your business’s interior and exterior during the time of day it looks best to provide a preview of what people can expect when they visit. Share photos of the areas surrounding your location to give people even more of a reason to keep coming back.
4. Event Coverage
Hire a photographer for an event you host to capture photos of the guests, special moments and other details that you can share online for everyone to see. Measure the event’s success and spread the word by using the photos as marketing material to attract more attendees in the future.
5. Photos for Print
Refresh your home, office space or business with prints to create the ambience that best suits you, your colleagues and your clients. See what photos a photographer is currently offering for sale, or commission a personalized project to meet your specific needs.

Daytime long exposures are a real favorite of mine. It allows capturing something that can’t be seen with the naked eye. Time and movement within a still photo. The golden light and cloud trails make any landscape look absolutely breathtaking.
The photos below were all taken at Captree State Park in Long Island, New York. Enjoy.
