Pittsburgh’s “award” winning child photographer | Honored to take 3rd place in NAPCP national image competition


Words really can not express my emotions. I feel honored, blessed, humble and … so much more.

I am a new member of NAPCP and as of recently also a NAPCP 2018-2019 ambassador. I submitted 10 images in February for this NAPCP’s image competition and received the final results yesterday April 23, 2018.

I truly am so excited. This photo is also really special to me because it was one of those photos that I just felt like I started to get it all together and magic started happening. I shot this 2 years ago ( 2016). 2016 for me was really the year I started to feel like I found myself as an artist and to recognized for a photo from that year and in a category that I feel I shine in – really just makes my heart explode in a million glittered stars.

Thank you NAPCP !


The magic within collection : Is all about the child | Milestone sessions for children 6 months through 16 years of age. These sessions are created around the child with their imagination behind the concept I create. With keeping in mind what they love right now. ( all planned form chatting on the phone ) I have found that it is so important to capture these moments for children so they can look back ( just as important – you can look back ) at these times of their lives and remember how important these “things” are to them. Whether that be the love for Unicorns, reading or swinging. I make sure to freeze those moments to have forever. After all capturing memories will never go out of style.

This original concept was created & photographed by me.
