If you would have asked me as a kid, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, I would have said, “A teacher.” I went to school for teaching and taught in several districts for 8 years. Then I was laid off.
When one door closes another one opens. Well, I didn’t want to wait around for that door to open so I decided to open that door myself. Who knew how challenging and exciting it would be at the same time? I picked up our camera one day and thought, “Hmm, what could I do with this?” I started to learn how to use it properly and began taking pictures; and so began my journey as a professional photographer in Buffalo and I happily serve all surrounding WNY areas. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed it! Since then I’ve taken several photography courses and began to really challenge myself. It’s never easy switching careers but I am extremely happy with where my life is headed!
Working with children has always made me happy. I’m so glad that I have found another career that allows me to work with children and that I enjoy! As a professional photographer located in Tonawanda, NY and serving the Buffalo, Amherst and Williamsville areas, I enthusiastically specialize in newborn photography, children photography and family portraits.
