“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
As a mom, Tracy knows a stress-free environment is important. Striving to make each photo shoot a fun and enjoyable event, portrait sessions feel more like play dates. It’s more than just a picture, you receive an experience.
Tracy is an educated photographer and experienced professional. She discovered her artistic ability at an early age. While most children scribble on walls with crayon, Tracy embraced it. At the age of 4, she stepped back from her purple magic marker drawing, admired her work and then proudly autographed it.
While pursuing her ambitions Tracy held various jobs in photography as a student. Tracy received her fine art photography degree from Syracuse University in 1992. Her education continued at Brooks Institute of Photography where she strengthened her technical skills before securing an internship at Hallmark Cards. During the three month internship, Tracy fell in love with the people of Kansas City. While she misses the ocean and beaches of New Jersey where she grew up, Tracy is proud to call the mid-west her home.
If you are looking for natural, engaging portraits of your loved ones, call Gallery Portraiture and let Tracy turn your life, into Art.

Do you remember those Adolescent years? Crooked teeth, acne and who can forget the emotional rollercoasters. Anyone else remember feeling self-conscious and awkward?
IMAGINE the power of seeing yourself as BEAUTIFUL!
“My Life” sessions are designed to show the Beauty that shines from within you. There are always cute baby photos of us. The toddler years are so silly and fun, that there are lots of photos then too. But…we forget those critical in be“tween” years before they are all grown up. So, before she is shopping for prom dresses. Give her the power to feel beautiful.
