Taking pictures has always been an important part of my life. It grew into a more meaningful hobby that I dedicated myself to when our sons came into our lives. I love and treasure all the moments I have of them from the first day they were born. Shortie Studios started by my friends asking me to create the same images for them that I have of my family and has become a dream come true for me.
Although I am born, raised and live in Western New York, I always feel most at home near the ocean. So at least once a year, I try to get my family to the beach. Most of our days though we spending being together, either at home or at our cabin in the Southern Tier. I am a big fan of Buffalo sports, hanging out with friends at some of our amazing local breweries, and have even fallen in love with working out. So that is just a little bit about me...
This is not something I jumped into just because I had a fancy camera. I have slowly taken my time to learn, practice, study and be critiqued. I put my whole heart into creating the best gallery of images I can for you.
In February 2016, I mentored with Newborn photography great, Ashley Hill of Florida.
In July 2016, I was a part of a family mentoring session with the amazing Sarah Hill of Sarah-Beth Photography in Indiana.
I will always be learning and growing. I will shoot what I love, while giving you lasting memories of your loves.
