I've loved photography since my first high school photography class. Up until that point, I planned to be an artist of some sort, an illustrator or painter. With photography, creating art was instant. I liked that. I could create, and create some more, and keep moving. Art direction is quite fun for me. My favorite subjects are people. I love capturing moments and catching emotion in my subjects. People are layered. I enjoy getting to know people and sharing experiences.
When I’m not photographing, you can find me hanging out with my husband and my four kiddos at a nearby park, swimming or hiking in the woods. I enjoy decorating, organizing, creating new things, spreading good ideas and inspiring others. Before my love of weddings, I earned a BA from Columbia College Chicago in Fine Art and worked in the fashion industry. For the last 14 years, I’ve had the privilege of telling countless love stories for my couples. I look forward to telling many more, and hopefully yours!
Engagement sessions are my favorite to photograph. It's such a great way to get to know the couple and vice versa. I love seeing how they interact and what they laugh about together!
