Born in Schenectady New York, I am a mother of 3 grown beautiful children and a proud grandmother of 4 amazing grandbabies. I have always loved having a camera in my hand and capturing those innocent years while also working outside of my home full time. Wow, have the years flown!!
In 2008, I kidnapped my sweet husband Larry to the Big Island of Hawaii to help bring dental services to that community. In our spare time, we explored the beaches, the culture and spirit of the Island. In 2014, we were inspired to share our love and the beauty of the Island and created our business, Vows in Hawaii. I upgraded all my photography equipment to the best of the best and mentored under an amazing talented Hollywood Photographer, Christina Brandt of Kohalafoto and Tricia Vogt of Magical Moments. Over the past three years, we have officiated and photographed more than 300 small intimate destination beach weddings and vow renewals. We have met so many amazing special couples and families from around the world!!
In August of 2018, I chose to retire from my full time position at the community health center. it was time to go back home to Upstate New York. We now reside in the Albany area, close to our family and friends. I have also chosen to exclusively pursue my passion as a photographer. I am here now to serve my community and focus on the value of Family. Family is everything. It is about joy, peace, and unconditional love.
I look forward to meeting you and your family, becoming a trusted friend and to capture these special moments.
For me, It is a dream come true!!
I am truly blessed and grateful!!
