Hello!

I feel so blessed for the life that I have!  I Love life and all that it encompasses.  Some say that I live in a rose-colored world – and that is OK with me!  I love being around people that are happy – because I tend to be that way most of the time.  I want everyone to see the beauty that surrounds us and the beauty that is within each and every woman!  

I come from a very close Italian family.  My parents were high school sweethearts that have been married now for 48 years…they continue to be my inspiration of what a relationship should be.  I was fortunate to find the love of my life (a little later than high school) and we married 8 years ago.   I finally understood the quote “he completes me.”  He is my best friend...my love...my strength and support...my "one". 

We have an amazingly talented son that astounds us with his knowledge and creativity every day. He makes me laugh with his wit and charm…and has been my sunshine through cloudy days! He is an inspiration to me to keep making my dreams come true! 

I started my career many years ago in cosmetology (hair, skin, make-up)…even held a license in a couple of states.  I knew back then that beauty was a passion of mine, just didn’t know exactly how that would play out in my life.  Then I started to shoot Glamour (aka Modern Beauty) & Pageant Portraits and absolutely fell in love with it -- I felt this was my true passion in photography!  My love of photography + my love of beauty/fashion = a match made in heaven!  This quote by Audrey Hepburn sums it up quite nicely…

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
