I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife and a step-mom and soon to be mama myself. I am just like you. I enjoy spending time with my family and my friends, and I understand how important these memories and moments are to you as well. What started out as a hobby when I was little, quickly turned into a passion. It wasn't until I decided to study in Florence, Italy that my passion for photography and art really came to life. Being in the center of the Art Capital of the World can do that to anyone. I wasn't able to put my camera down, everywhere I went I was pulled to take "just one more picture." Capture just one more angle. I find such joy in being able to capture a moment of truth and share it with the world.
I understand that finding the right photographer for your life's milestones can be stressful. You want to feel comfortable, relaxed and know that at the end of the day your photographs will be everything you imagined. My goal is to build a trusting and long lasting relationship with you. Allow me to guide you every step of the way, from initial consultation to the day you see your photos. I will work with your individual needs to provide the best experience possible. Whether you have an important milestone or you want to document a special day in your life, I would be honored to be a part of all your special moments and memories. Seeing happy parents as a result of my work is my biggest reward.
My home studio is located in Wheeling, a Northwest suburb of Chicago. I also do on location photography in the Lake and Cook Counties which include, Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, Northbrook, Wilmette, Evanston, Glenview, Highland Park, Long Grove, Libertyville, Vernon Hills, Mundelein, and surrounding areas within 20 miles of Wheeling.
