How would you describe your style?
A blend of spontaneous and posed images that are relaxed and intentional, with the goal of capturing genuine joy, intimate glances and unmistakable love.
What do you like to photograph?
I love capturing candid moments of families, events like birthday and anniversary parties, as well as couples interactions for wedding announcements.
Where do you like to photograph?
Anywhere, but if I'm being picky I prefer photographing outside in nature.
How did you get into photography?
My love for photography started in high school photo class. I would talk all my friends into posing in front of the camera, thankfully I have amazing friends. My photography changed for the better in college when I studied photojournalism. That's when I realized how important telling a story through images was to me. After college, I blended my love of people and journalism together to create the images showcased in my portfolio.
I love that you can freeze a moment in time with photography. I'm also drawn to the subtractive nature of photography. As a photographer it's your job to find the quiet in the chaos.
Where are you located?
I live in the Chicagoland area with my amazing husband, two wonderful kiddos and three furry babies (2 cats and 1 dog).
What are your interests apart from photography?
Are family and friends considered an interest? My gangs the BEST! Enjoying nature, preferably by water, audio books while knitting or puzzling. Oh, AND binge watching any number of shows on Netflix.
