My passion is to create beautiful imagery. 

During my years as the Creative Director for Bridal Guide Magazine I grew to love working with flowers, luxe fabrics, fine tableware and wedding gowns. I loved devising a narrative and picking out just the right things to compose the photographs to tell that story.

I believe in the emotional connection between a photograph and its viewer and I strive to unlock the components of that connection. I have a passion for vintage finds, ephemera and handmade objects that I incorporate into my styling. As an avid shopper I am constantly seeking out treasures to stash in my prop closet for just the right moment.

My love for all things vintage emerged from my connection to my grandmothers, aunts and my mother, who grew up and lived in New York City in the 30s, 40s & 50s. Starting in my 20s I was excited by their handbags, sweaters and tableware now that they are all gone these beloved items are all I have left. I am inspired by them every day.

I created a one-on-one prop styling workshop, The Prop Styling Experience and am on the faculty of New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. I'm also the Contributing Home Editor for Bridal Guide and a regular at wedding and tableware industry events. Equally comfortable with still life and fashion, I am available for styling and creative direction for editorial, social media & advertising photo shoots. I look forward to discussing your project.
