I wish I had been introduced to photography much earlier in life, as it has brought me more joy than any other creative endeavor. 

Several years ago, I talked with my husband about upgrading our camera because we travel quite a bit. To my surprise, he bought me a Canon 70D for Christmas. The camera sat in its box for about a month because I was terrified of using such an expensive piece of equipment. Thankfully, he also gave me a private lesson with our wedding photographer (yes--he is THAT thoughtful), and I quickly became obsessed with photography. 

I'll photograph anything or anyone that lets me, but in particular, I love photographing people. My goal is to make people comfortable in front of the camera, so I can create beautiful and natural photographs. There's nothing more rewarding than when a client looks at the back of my camera and says, "Oh, I actually love the way I look there!" That's the goal. I use natural light (and artificial if necessary) to create the most flattering images of my clients.

Thank you for visiting my website! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you have about my work and services. 

I am based in Chicago, but I am happy to travel for sessions.
