A timeless, precious moment passes spontaneously, candidly. A passing glimpse, a cheeky grin on the face of a child, the cool confidence of a teen; these moments cannot be created, only captured. Thea's talent and passion lies in capturing those moments and preserving them for posterity.
Clients can choose to have their portrait done in Thea's state-of-the-art digital studio, or in a natural environment such as the beach, park, or their own backyard. Candid portrait sessions of children having fun in a natural environment are a wonderful way to show a child’s true personality.
Clients can expect an initial consultation so that she can assist them in designing a special session that is unique to their personality and needs. When it comes to working with children, Thea has a soothing, friendly approach. A mother of two restless boys, she understands the frustration of having to wait in line at a chain store with your child, hoping that their picture is taken before they get too restless. She believes that your experience in the studio should be stress-free and that is why you will be the only portrait client on the day of your session so that all of her abundant creativity and energy is available to you.
As a digital artist, Thea is able to do touch-ups for things like blemishes, wrinkles, teeth whitening or any slight imperfections, as well as old photo restorations. She has also had intensive training and experience in the use of computer art software, which allows her to digitally render any photograph, taken by her or provided by the client, as an heirloom quality oil painting. These paintings are printed on canvas, custom framed, and displayed as timeless wall art in homes and offices.
Thea is a member of the Professional Photographers of America and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Seton Hall University. She studied psychology at Georgian Court College and then continued on to the International Center for Photography school in New York where she studied photography, lighting and digital art. She continues to take classes to learn and grow as an artist.
