I am first and foremost, a photographer. Not a wedding photographer, not a family photographer, not a food photographer, but a photographer. Someone who has made it her life mission to capture the world around her. I have realized over the years that I have a gift. And I want to be able to share that gift with the people who matter most.
I picked up my first 35mm camera in High School and I don’t think I’ve put one down since. I knew I had something special when I could make people feel comfortable in front of the camera within ten minutes of meeting me. I truly believe that each one of us comes into this world with a purpose, and I know that mine is to document life & love through my lens.
When I’m not working, I love to go on long walks, watercolor paint, hang out with my adorable niece and nephew, try a new yoga studio, plan my next trip or have long lasting dinner parties with those closest to me. I’ve made it a priority to recharge in between each shoot so that I can be fully present and available to my subjects. It’s one of the most important things I can do for myself and the people I am photographing.
Currently I am based in Chicago, but please know that I am not afraid to hop on a big silver bird to come make art with you!
