I’m Cadence : A Long Island N.Y. based lifestyle photographer.
I’ve been a photographer for over a decade. In my early teens, I loved photographing with film. A roll of 24 was like gold. I can remember waiting, sitting on my front stoop trying to capture that moment when a bird flew out of its house. As an adult, I long for grain and softness in my work. I am currently working in both digital, with the newest Canon gear, and film.
I studied Art Eduction & Photography in college. Over the past few years I have been teaching art and photography in public schools, as well as running my own personal business. A few months after my Grandma “Sarafina” Sally passed away, I wanted her to be with me always. I inherited her beautiful collection of vintage family photographs which sparked my interest in capturing memories for others.
In turn leading me to… Sarafina’s Photographs.
I am a natural light photographer. I love simple, dreamy, beautifully composed imagery. I use prime, low light lenses to capture moments without flash. However, in some cases, like a dark venue during an event, it is a nescessaty.
I am currently shooting all forms of lifestyle including but not limited to; engagement, wedding, family, maternity & newborn.
