After receiving her BA degree in Fine Art - Photography, Natalie begun her photography career working for National Studios, in the travel division, taking portrait throughout the United States. Shortly after she opened her photography studio in Chicago and worked in print production and advertising for major clients such as Pantene, Coca-Cola, Land’s End and more. This experience broadened as well as enhanced her knowledge of client relationships, studio management and lighting techniques.
Presently she maintains her own commercial, portrait and lifestyle photography business in the Capital Region of New York, which receives much praise from satisfied clients for her head shots in Albany and surrounding areas.
I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. I use my camera to document the world and then print images with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My pictures tell my stories.
I have photographed many different subjects, scenes, and moments all over the world. There's a picture around every corner.
Through my prints and photo books, I invite you to bring bits of my stories into your life and home. New prints are released regularly, so check back often. If you sign up for updates, you will get notified about new prints or books, sales, and shows.
I have worked with Natalie on multiple projects and she shows heart and creativity every time. You could easily tell she enjoys her work and also holds herself to high standards, which she meets every time! Natalie has a way of breathing vision into a scene/backdrop and making the photo shoot light, enjoyable, and top-notch every time.
I've had quite a few headshots done for business over the years, but the session with Natalie stands out as a special experience. She took the time to ask questions and then captured my true personality in her images in a way no other photographer had managed before. Natalie is a gifted artist and a joy to work with.

I can't say enough good things about Natalie and my experience with her as my professional photographer. She makes me feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera and her light spirit and wonderful attitude radiate making the photo shoot a fun time! I was picky about certain things and Natalie was extremely flexible and able to work around my requests. She's also very talented on Photoshop. She's a committed professional and hard-working. I've worked with a couple other photographers and Natalie is hands-down the best!
Natalie is warm, creative, professional, and fun. All I had to do was to show up with a smile while Natalie brought her artistry and kindness with her. it's easy to see Natalie's passion for capturing moments, which I believe actually paint pictures. She made our adventure together a successful one as well as enjoyable one, a winning combination! The thing I found the most refreshing was working with a professional who was so clearly able to convey her vision, who collaborated throughout our work together, and who was excited about every step-in the process. I really enjoyed working with Natalie and look forward to our next collaboration!
Working with Natalie was a great pleasure. I contacted her on social media to do a shoot with my girlfriend and was pleasantly surprised when she included me in a set or two. Natalie has great energy and knows how to bring her subject to life. She is truly an expert of the craft.
My photo session with Natlaie was exactly lwhat I dreamed a professional photography session could be and even more. She took the time to make me feel comfortable and brought the best in me. She was able to get my personnality through and yet make me look better. It was a great experience that made me feel good about myself and I would recommend it to anyone!
