Quick hello to share some beauty shots from a shoot I recently did with a wonderful young woman! Taylor was so much fun to work with!
Makeup by: Alyssa Aiello
If you need to look amazing, she’s your gal!
I have been wanting to get this beauty in front of my lens for what seems like forever! Karlee has one of those radiant personalities that shines from the inside out. She is as sweet and kind as can be, and I have always loved her timeless old Hollywood looks. I knew she would kill this shoot! She has got it all. Then, when you add a team like Alyssa Aiello on makeup and Lizzy Esposito on hair, it’s magical! So much love for those talented women!
A few favorites…
Throughout the years, I’ve gotten to know Jennifer through documenting various weddings. She is always a smiling and bright presence in every room! As a bridesmaid or a wedding guest, she brings a positivity and enthusiasm to the day that lifts everyone in her orbit. It’s a rare trait and one that immediately stands out. I’m thrilled that I finally was able to get her to myself in the studio! She is incredible…kind, beautiful, fun…and she glows from the inside out! We had a great team on this one, Alyssa Aiello brought her insanely talented makeup skills to the shoot and Lizzy Esposito was on hair. They created a romantic and beautiful look that is perfect for Jen’s sunny disposition and stunning smile!
Lots of love for this beauty!

If you haven’t already heard, let me be the first to share! There is a brand new, light-filled salon in Utica, and, you guys…it is BEAUTIFUL. Airy, minimal, and super modern, along with thoughtful decor, Espo & Co Salon is a calming, elegant space. Lizz Esposito, the owner, has thought of everything, the natural light in this space is unbelievable! It’s a true reflection of her bright disposition and warm personality. This space is perfect for bridal parties to get their hair and makeup on a wedding day!
I had the honor of taking some shots of the team and the new space! It’s so large and welcoming!

The gorgeous and talented team…
All the best to this amazing squad!
We all took a little risk in February. For the entire month, I discounted my normal headshot rate for anyone who was willing to put themselves out there. Together, we let the fear go and created something special. To everyone who swallowed their embarrassment, arrived at a stranger’s business and offered vulnerability in front of my lens, I can’t thank you enough.
I assure you, none of us ever feels thin enough, good looking enough or young enough to feel fabulous in photos…but you showed up anyway and took a chance! Whether it was to get a new job, to freshen up the dating profile, or just to put forth a more polished presence on the Internet, everyone showed true beauty through their adventurous spirit and enthusiasm.
I am so grateful.
Thank you for trusting me with your perfect faces! A few faves…
Thank you to everyone who came into the studio!
