My creative team and I serve the Hudson Valley and Tristate area including New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. As a woman, LGBT and L.E.O owned business, we strive to make you feel safe and comfortable in front of the camera, whilst creating special memories that will last for generations to come .

The session fee, post production editing time and gallery hosting fees are waived, however, the non-refundable reservation fee of $25 is required for the time slot.
