So glad you’ve stopped by! I’m Chris and I absolutely love working with my senior clients. As the mom of two awesome young men, I have personally been through senior year twice as a parent. Senior year is full of special experiences, traditions and lots of fun times with your friends. Senior portraits are a very important part of those traditions and you'll want to be sure to hire a photographer who not only takes great photos, but who also cares about you.
I love learning about your plans after high school or college and being inspired by your passion for your academic pursuits and extracurricular activities. I consider it a privilege to be a part of a major milestone in your life and to be able to capture special memories together. There's nothing better than when a senior client tells me they love their images AND that they had an amazing time at their session!
My path to becoming a professional photographer is rather unconventional. After college, I went to law school with the goal of becoming an attorney. Although I am licensed to practice law in Connecticut, God had different plans for me. After having children, we moved around alot as a family, and it just wasn’t possible to pursue a legal career. Our adventures took us to four states and two foreign countries, Italy and Brazil. It was in Brazil that I began to study photography with a wonderful teacher who taught us all the technical aspects and more importantly, inspired us to be more creative. When I moved back to the US, I started my own photography business and found my passion working with seniors! I’m SO grateful for how much my business has grown over the years and for all the fabulous clients I get to work with!
