Hi, I’m Lisa and I’ve been working with Tricia since 2013. I first became interested in photography when I took my first photography class in high school. Having been born in Rochester, NY, the home of Eastman Kodak, and having a grandfather who dabbled in photography, it must have been running in my blood because I fell in love right away. I spent all of my spare time in the dark room, study breaks, lunches, after school, I was hooked!
I attended Cazenovia College in Central New York and worked towards a BFA in Studio Art with a specialization in Photography. In my senior year, I won the Photography Division Award for my capstone and at that point I knew I didn’t want to put my camera down.
After I graduated college, I was looking for a job that would help me continue learning and growing in photography. I was told to contact Tricia, as she was looking for a second shooter at the time and was so excited to hear back from her that she was interested in meeting. The rest is history. I have now been photographing and editing for Tricia almost every day since 2015 and was promoted to an Associate in 2017.
There is something about the human connection that really warms my heart! I feel so lucky that I get to witness the special moments that people share. I absolutely love working with families and being able to capture these moments for them to have as a keepsake. As a child, and even now, I would enjoy going through old family photos see the laughing smiling faces of my family members. I know that Tricia and my intentions align when it comes to providing images that will be passed down from generation to generation.
Within the first few months of working with Tricia, I realized that I was unbelievably lucky. She has an incredible way of making people feel comfortable in front of a camera and knows how to take charge of a situation without overtaking the moment. She handles sensitive situations with ease and knows the importance of letting moments happen naturally. I have learned so much from her, both technically and also in the way she responds to situations and builds trust in her clients. Tricia’s determination to provide both a fun and relaxed experience and also deliver quality images as a legacy for our clients is so inspiring and I push myself to match her excellence every day!
