Hi! I'm Desirea

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I'm a born and raised Jersey girl although where I grew up was super rural. I had 2 farms on my street growing up and lived in the middle of the woods. I now live with my Husband and 2 boys in the suburbs of NYC but I still love to get out to the country whenever I can. I feel most connected to nature and create better in a natural setting. I have been an artist since I was 13 and got my first set of Bob Ross Acrylic paints. I studied Art History in college and am always looking for new ways to create. I started out as a hobbyist, travel photographer about 7 years ago, but my passion for photography really took off when my first son was born. He was 10 weeks early and spent 6 weeks in the NICU. when we brought him home, he was on a breathing monitor and his immune system was not the best so we could not really go anywhere to get traditional photos done. That's when I decided to do them myself and the rest is history!

I love to create photos that show love and emotion. In an age where anyone can take pretty decent photos with their cell phone, I want to provide you with photos that make you feel something and show your passion for one another. If you have kids, I want your children to look back at them and feel how much you loved them. If you are a couple, I want you to look back when you are old and remember how passionately you loved one another. Rather than posing too much, I will help you create moments to capture your connections to one another.  I would love for you to feel at the end of your session that you just had a fun day with your loved ones.
