About

Seeing the World Through a Lens is Like Seeing for the First Time

Welcome to Gray Star Photography, where you will find all my original photographs. I opened my other Etsy shop, Gray Star Design, in 2009 and decided to split my work into 2 shops.

When I was a little girl I was always in front of the camera. My mother and father took pictures of me all the time so it was something I was used to. I adore all of these photos. Once I got older, I was more comfortable behind the camera. I felt like there was just so much to see. How could I not capture it all and share it with the world?

I have been taking photographs since I was 14. I always felt that looking through a lens was like unlocking a secret.
Experimenting with black and white prints led to digital work in my twenties. Although I didn't major in this medium, I took a fair share of classes throughout my 7 years of art school. Among them were illustration, philosophy and painting. Graduating with a BFA in Graphic Design allowed me to explore all aspects of art which is where I always feel at home.

Most of my work has a vintage feel which I feel is a huge inspiration to me, along with nature. I adore the antique flair of the good old days and feel it should never die. Showcasing this style is how I show my appreciation and love for the past. I feel lucky to find beauty in things that most people don't notice. To put them on a pedestal for all to see makes me really happy. I am truly inspired everyday to look around and take in all I see, every detail. To capture what my eyes witness with such an amazing tool like the camera is a gift I will always be thankful for.

I have hundreds of photos in my collections so if there is something you are looking for please don't hesitate to ask. I can also do custom work if you are interested in my style. Just contact me!

I live and work as a freelance designer in Long Island with my husband Dan and dog Olive.
