I am one of the lucky ones who grew up in a family of amazing artists who constantly encouraged creativity! I feel blessed, really blessed! My husband & children are amazingly supportive and beyond patient with my crazy ideas (that I test on them quite frequently). To say I bribe them all (dogs included) with photo shoots would be an understatement. I am incredibly inspired by fashion, so I absolutely love styling my shoots! My ultimate goal is to create images that exude emotion from my subjects: happy, serious, curious or whatever else you bring that day! The subtle details make all of the difference: the body language, the facial expression, the clothing choices... these details are so important in creating that perfect image that captures who my subject truly is.
My children have been my inspiration form the start. Becoming a parent for me has been the most beautiful experience in my life. When they were born I just wanted to freeze every moment in time with them. So I did. I began photographing them, again and again. I became obsessed with capturing everything. Their unique expressions, the firsts of everything: the first smile, the first time they walked, the first lost tooth… all of it.
I decided the business name should be named after them “CG” representing the the 2 best things I’ve ever done in my life. Year over year of shooting my children has taught me that there is no better way to connect with another human being than to photograph them. Each shoot and experience with them has been both unique and beautiful in its own way. The most amazing part of all is that as they change year after year the images always remans the same.
