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.
