Photography has always been a passion of mine, but it wasn't until I lost my job of many years that I decided to pursue my love of photography. I wanted to do something that I loved, that inspired me, and the art form of photography gave me purpose.
I hope to capture images that are fun, dreamy, and a little whimsical. As a mom of two boys I know all too well how quickly life goes by. I love looking back at all the photos of my boys over the years, it brings a smile to my face. Photos instantly transport you back to moments in time that they captured. Photos should be more than just the physical picture. They're an attached memory, or feeling: a moment encapsulated in time.
Capturing the Light is my personal mantra. It helps me in times of darkness, by seeking the light, not only in myself but also in others. I strive to capture the light in everyone I photograph.
I was born in the little town of Palermiti, in Southern Italy. I moved to the United States when I was only five years old.
I grew up in Quincy, Massachusetts and moved to Braintree, Massachusetts when I got married.
In 1990, I married my husband Domenic, who is also from my hometown of Palermiti. Together we have raised two wonderful sons, Joseph and Michael.
My family is the most important thing to me. I cherish the time we can spend together. One of our favorite traditions is going to grandmas house for Sunday lunch. I hope to continue that tradition with my boys. We love to travel to Italy as often as we can to spend time with our family there.
I love all types of photography. I love working with children, getting them to open up and be silly, and most importantly... have fun! I love shooting in natural light, the rustic elements of nature, and the outdoors in general. My favorite place is the beach, so I try to shoot there as often as I can.
One of my passions is photographing sunsets, there is something so peaceful and soothing about watching the different colors of the sky as the sun sets on another day.
