I married my soulmate and best friend, Nick, ten years ago. We are blessed with two beautiful boys, Giovanni and Rocco and recently was surprised with a girl, Apollonia Azalea! We live in Cleveland, Ohio where we built our small and cozy dream home. We can easily be found in the kitchen, cooking, singing and dancing together with a freshly uncorked bottle of red wine! I love starting my day with lemon water and Jesus! My favorite food is authentic homemade pizza and I can't resist anything coconut. Once a year, you can find me traveling to Naples, Florida splashing in the water with my family, playing tennis with my husband, or biking to the beach to see the sunset! Kindness, creativity and being real is who I am. My values are rooted in my faith.

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

I am an artist, a dreamer,
and a lover of life!

let's connect

I am a digital photographer, specializing in natural light wedding photography. Over the course of 10 years I can honestly say I haven’t worked a day in my life because I am so passionate about capturing genuine love. I am inspired by our grandparent's generation love for one another. My goal is to create timeless, natural photographs for you to look back on 40 years from now and still feel the same emotions. I promise to always be truthful with you from start to finish, while making you feel beautiful and comfortable.

The romantic in me tells me to document every stage of our lives. All such moments are precious. Every person has an awe-inspiring story to be told. My hope is that I will be able to tell your story to create beautiful memories for you. I know that these special moments today will become cherished memories tomorrow and for generations to come.

Some of my hobbies include: riding bikes, playing tennis, swimming! I just love the warm sunshine & salty breeze through my hair!



My favorite pizza restaurant is Campiello’s in Naples, Florida and my current favorite is 3 Palms Pizzeria here in Ohio!



Truly the kindness we share with each other makes all the difference.



From macaroons and acia bowls to lotions and candles, I love the smell and taste of coconut everything!

Cooking is the heart of our home. I am a hands on mom, so I love getting the kids involved in all my homemade cooking.



From the vibrant colors and fresh smell, I love using lemons for cooking and making limencello! No doubt, I have a zest for life!
