Hi and Thanks so much for stopping in!!!! I get to know each of my clients on a personal level, so I wanted to share a little bit about myself with you.
First of all soooo many people ask what the meaning of “Je T’Adore” is and I want to share that with you! This is a French phrase that translates to “I adore you” and this phrase holds a VERY special meaning to my husband and me – when we first started dating, before we got to the “I love you” stage in our relationship – we would tell each other “Je T’Adore” because we did, and still do adore each other. When I was naming my company I wanted a name that meant something to me personally and that also represented what I was sharing with all of my clients. The love and adoration I see in the families that I shoot is beyond wonderful and this name could not have fit my style of photography any better! Plus, it’s my initials – which was just icing on the cake!
So a little about me....I am married to the man of my dreams, mommy to the most precious and amazing baby girl and we have two adorable fur babies that we just love to pieces too. We feel so blessed in so many ways and we are so thankful to have each other! My family means the world to me, and I love capturing all of the big and small moments in our lives. These are the times and things we can never get back.
I am a born and raised Cleveland gal and most of my family is still local! I have my Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and my Master’s degree in Business Administration. I work full time at one of our finest local Cleveland staples in banking and I run my photography business on the weekends and evenings. I absolutely LOVE that I can do both because my day job allows me to use the analytical and “banker” side of my brain and my photography allows me to use my creative and fun side of my brain. It’s a win/win for everyone :)
I have had a passion and love for photography since I was younger but I never could pursue this interest seriously until later in life. I was finally able to go back school in the evenings and weekends to learn the technical side of photography after my husband and I got married and it was one of the best decisions I have made!
I am a very, VeRy, VERY sentimental and sappy gal – and I cry happy tears ALL the time , and I am okay with that!!! I am a hugger, so don’t be surprised if hug you and your whole family! I love having fun and being silly, and I am a hopeless romantic and I love LOVE, in all forms. It makes my heart melt seeing the love between spouses, and the love between parents and their children and the love (even if it’s thru fighting sometimes) between siblings and even pets!

I hope to meet you and your family soon!!!
