About Shortie Studios


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 moment they were born.  Shortie Studios started, like many photographers, when my friends asked me to create the same images for them that I have of my own boys.  And that 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 spend being together, either at home or 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.  That is just a little about me.



This is not something that 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 photographer, Ashley Hill, of Ashley Hill Photography in Melbourne, Florida.  

In July 2016 I mentored with Sarah Hill from Sarah-Beth Photography in Indiana.  

I am currently an active member of at least three learning communities so I continue to grow at my craft.

 I will always be learning and growing.  I will shoot what I love, while giving you lasting images and memories.
