I seek to capture genuine moments and create art that is elegant, timeless, thoughtful, and authentic.
I am a fine art and portrait photographer, dreamer, explorer, runner, wife, mom, storyteller, and coffee addict. I love sharing what I see in this amazing world in which we live in and finding the beauty in everyday life through photography.
My fine art photography prints are shipped worldwide. Portrait sessions are available in Chicago and anywhere really - I love to travel!
I feel most inspired when I am exploring, whether that is urban nature or the-middle-of-nowhere nature. My photographs reflect this with natural lighting and a view of the details that make up our world and set the scene of our story.
I’ve been taking photographs for almost my entire life. Since receiving that first camera for an early childhood birthday I have loved photographing the beauty around me in our amazing word. I have studied in classrooms, workshops and independently. I am continually working on my craft and refining my mastery of photography skills. I regularly take on personal projects to stretch myself creatively and technically. After pursuing my passion of photography on the side while working in marketing, I took a leap and started my photography business in 2011.
In addition to photography and my family, I love to practice yoga, run, and read. Adventures make me feel alive—I love to travel and explore new places. I have lived in Iowa, Colorado, Chicago, Wisconsin, and Manhattan, New York—currently I call Chicago, Illinois home. A good cup of coffee makes me happy.
I am always ready for a new exciting project and challenge. Please take a look around and contact me for commissioned work and lifestyle portrait photography sessions.
