I’m inspired by love and have always been drawn to the brighter side of life. Over the past 16 years, I’ve built a loyal following of clients that hire me not only for my talent and passion, but my special gift of making them feel comfortable, which shines through in their natural smiles.

As a mother of three, Charisse knows how to instantly put her clients at ease in order to capture the love and connections they share. She is passionate, meticulous and full of life. Her style is personal, timeless, and casual. She believes family is what matters most and therefore, the most valuable art you will ever own.

As an established leader in the photography world, Charisse coaches rising photography entrepreneurs. She founded Candyshop Photography — an event photography studio — and leads many talented artists in capturing special memories at parties, events and holiday mini sessions.

Charisse and her husband, David, live with their three sons in Rowayton, Connecticut — a beautiful coastal community 40 miles outside NYC.
