Hello and welcome, I'm glad you're here! Thank you for taking the time to visit. I am a Chicago area photographer specializing in lifestyle portraits: children, families, young adult & teens and engagement. I have always been drawn to documenting the everyday fleeting moments that are observed but seldom captured. A hug between siblings, a warm smile between spouses, or a silent reflective moment by a child deep in thought. My lifestyle images are a combination of posed and candid moments where true personality and emotion are found. I hope you take a moment to browse my galleries.
It brings me great joy to watch my clients' faces when they see their images for the first time. The photos they choose say a lot about the importance of capturing emotion. Many times the customer chooses an image not for its technicality, but for how it encapsulates the moment. I love to provide clients with the lasting gift of captured images that reflect relationships and personalities as they are right now. Children grow and families change, so the images I preserve today will become tomorrow's treasured memories.
While completing my A.A.S degree in Photography at the College of DuPage, I enjoyed many opportunities and experiences. During the summer of 2014, I completed a three month internship where I worked as a second shoot and assistant on weddings, engagement and newborn sessions. I participated in the 15th Annual Easter Seals Photography Exhibit in which my presentation was featured. My work has been published in the College of DuPage student newspaper, The Courier. Most recently, my work was exhibited in the Wings Student Art Gallery twice, and COD's Annual Juried Student Art Exhibit.
Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about my work, or would like to schedule a session. I look forward to hearing from you.
