I think these days, most of us interact with our photos a bit like this: take photo on phone, maybe in portrait mode if being fancy, post photo to stream/social or text to someone who will appreciate it, then forget about image until your phone or facebook or whatever sends you one of those "remember this day a year ago?" notes, or you scroll on your phone after you put your kid to bed, looking at pictures of your kid (not speaking from personal experience or anything).
My goal is to create beautiful & timeless photographs begging to be printed and brought into your home to be enjoyed every single day. Your photography portraits will come to life with high quality prints, framed prints, canvases and heirloom photo albums.
prints are forever
You can choose from a variety of greeting card designs, customize your colors and text, and pop in your favorite photos all through your online proofing gallery.
Better yet, I can do it for you. All you'll have to do is click "check out."
i want to send out cards but it just feels like such a pain....
Photos are treasured gifts & HUGE hits for the grandparents, anniversaries, birthdays and holidays (hint hint: Mother's Day).
Seriously, grandparents go gaga over this stuff.
what in the world do i gift them?
An album is the perfect way to preserve your images and pass them down through generations.
I offer both fine art albums and a less fancy "everyday album." Both are archival quality and bound by hand.
Not enough room at home for wall art?
Unmatted box frames are perfect for minimalist spaces. For those who prefer to go frameless - hand-stretched canvases, metal prints and acrylic prints are timeless options.
modern & Minimalist
Framed prints in a variety of sizes, colors & styles, plus a special edition float mount frame that is drop dead gorgeous (all the details will be in your online gallery!)
Framed prints are handmade with archival papers, museum quality mats, and hardwood.
traditional & Classic
I'll be your personal guide to the perfect art products for you.
I offer in-home consultations to measure your spaces for wall galleries, then provide design layouts that show off your photos beautifully.
I offer complimentary album design services for all clients upon request, with an easy online proofing process that will take you just moments to complete!
something for everyone
& every home
Well...of course you can! And - here's why you should consider investing in higher quality products than what is commercially available to you.
First of all - for most people, deciding on which photos to print, how to display them, and/or creating photo album layouts is one of those annoying & time consuming tasks that constantly gets booted to the bottom of the to-do list for....ever? You don't have time for this. Let me take care of your photography portrait experience from start to finish.
You've already made the investment in your family photos, maternity photos, newborn photos, proposal photos, elopement photos, etc etc. All of these sessions deserve to be printed.
To make the most out of your photography investment and enjoy them every single day, printing through a professional (hi) is the best way to get the highest quality products that will bring your photos into real life in all of their glory.
I source photography products from the best vendors in the country that only work with professional photographers, because they are committed to only creating art with the most beautiful & professional photos. I'm talking museum quality papers, old-school darkroom style print processes, stunning wood frames, and hand bound albums meticulously crafted by human beings who care deeply about creating art out of your treasured photographs.
I offer something for everyone, and you'll be able to easily order these exclusive offerings through your online photography gallery.
Can't I just download them and order cheaper stuff?
Why should I order my photography art through you?
I have photos all over my little Hudson Valley home. When I want to punch my (deeply beloved) husband in the face, I glance up at the photo of us running through the vineyard on our wedding day and my heart softens. Yes, there is magic here, in the background of the everyday.
When my kid is experimenting with different screeches and throwing every piece of food I make him onto the floor (while looking me right in the eye), I look at the gorgeous photo of him with my husband, right over his high chair, and ahhh - there it is. The beauty is still there, underneath the daily challenges.
My baby already loves looking at the dozens of photos of his first year adorning the wall of his room. As he grows, our home will fill with more and more family photos. He will look at them and know I am loved. I belong. I am not alone.
And a lifetime later, when we aren't here, whoever loves us can open that album, drink in those timeless photographs, and feel that connection always.
Connection, joy, gratitude, affirmation and belonging.
To sum it up:
