Owner and Photographer
I have a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from SUNY New Paltz and over 20 years experience in photography, which include portrait studios, commercial photography, and established All Occasions Photography in 2010. I am a mom of two boys so I have seen it all, well it feels like that at times! Halloween is my favorite holiday and yes I still love to dress up and trick or treat! You are never too old! In my spare time (which isn’t much time at all) I am a foster mom to kittens and volunteer time at a Humane Society with my oldest son. We have fostered over 55 kittens thus far will continue to foster for as long as we can! And before you ask, yes I do put the kittens through photo shoots. This is the best way to find them homes. I am called the cat lady but honestly I love all animals!
My favorite motto is “If you don’t have fun doing your job, then why do it”. There are times I will be laying in the grass trying to get the right angle, or being very quiet and sneaky as to not interrupt the perfect moment. My goal is to capture the natural smiles and true personalities and if that means being silly to get you to relax then that is what I will do! I have also been known to play with kids before their photo session so they are more comfortable with me being around.
