Photographer, designer, margarita-obsessed, Enneagram 2. I'm a born and raised Chicago girl. I'm a Michigan resident now, but still love some Lou Malnati’s pizza, living near the lake, and my Chicago Bears.
Ever since I picked up the camera, I haven’t been able to put it down. If I go, she goes with me. My Facebook has countless albums from high school of my friends clowning around and serving early 2000s looks (cringe). There's just always been something super important to me in photos; I love documenting moments and emotions.
I have fond memories of going to my grandma's house and thumbing through old Polaroids of my family. Each photo had a unique story to tell with it. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think they're worth a lot more than that. A thousand smiles of a relative that's no longer with you. A thousand memories of senior year shenanigans with your girls. A thousand sweet nothings whispered from bride to groom during a first dance. My camera is my superpower, I can freeze these magical moments in time.
I met my hubbs in college where he played basketball and I played volleyball. After graduation, we moved to the Mitten and began mapping out what we wanted in our lives. When we had our son, my life changed in every way imaginable, career included. I picked up a camera to start capturing my own family's new memories, but soon I realized that there was a need for photography that prioritized emotions over picture-perfect posing.
What started as a hobby capturing my own family's moments quickly turned into my third love. But now I'm doing this my way, capturing photos that my clients can't help but share, print, carry in their wallet, and post to the 'gram. My photos are fun & fresh with a hint of nostalgia. Like a Marvin Gaye song turned photograph.
