Welcome, from Beth!

A little about me… Combining an adventurous style with an ability to harness natural light, it is my goal to make magic for everyone I photograph. My images have a consistent charm and glowing warmth that can make anyone smile; I have a gift for making anyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, allowing to connect with you on a personal level to achieve a candid intimacy in your photos that tell a story and not only capture what you looked like but also portray how you felt in that moment.

My Master of Photography degree from the Professional Photographers of America provides me the skills necessary to create the most flattering and finest portraits of individuals, couples, families, and more. As the mother of 4 boys, incredible patience and understanding are a way of life, which has been an invaluable asset in my profession.

A little about what I do…


I would be honored to be your photographer. Your wedding is one of the most important experiences of your life as a couple. I bring all my passion, creativity, dedication, and artful eye to deliver exceptional, heartfelt, and lasting images of your unforgettable day. Speaking from 26 years of professional experience and more than 1000 weddings, your wedding will be a wonderful potpourri of emotions, colors, sights, and sounds. The day will fly by and you will be surprised to find yourself dancing to the last song.

I want you to relive your wedding day through your candid style photos. You will look back and see all the things that happened around you: hear the toast again and see the expressions on your guests’ faces, to feel your father’s arms as you share that special dance, and to see the tears of happiness in your family eyes.

CHILD AND LIFESTYLE (Family Pictures, Events, Group Photos, etc.)

I love taking portraits and lifestyle photography, creating images that are natural, authentic and compelling. Getting to know each individual is a big part of what I do – I don’t just care about creating beautiful memories, I care about the people who are in front of my lens and I want that to show in the end product. I truly believe all children—no matter how active or how short of attention—can have wonderful portraits created of them. I bring along props, specialized lighting and backgrounds (if needed) to the shoot location so that I am able to capture unique and memorable images in any situation.

I am able to work in any environment. I really enjoy working with natural light or studio light.

CORPORATE (Executive Portraits, Corporate Events, etc.)

With more 30 years’ experience in publicity photography, corporate events, conference breakout sessions, executive portraits and more, I pride myself on being 100 percent solution-based, always delivering my clients needs. My expertise and innovative use of technology will create images that have the power to captivate and convey your message.

Thank you so much for allowing me to share a bit about myself. I hope that you, like many others, will find in me a friend, professional, and for many years to come, your life events photographer. I would love to talk with you about our complete services and value collections! I am also available for Skype video conferencing in addition to meeting in the studio.

Warm regards,
