Professionally, I am an award-winning and published photographer (first place in Illinois for a series on Elburn Days!), I belong to several professional photography organizations, and I love to take continuing education classes to challenge myself creatively.
I strive to take photos that capture moments in time to be treasured for years to come. My camera tells a story of life in this moment – whether that’s outside on a walk in the woods, at a beautiful park, playing catch with little ones, or having a snowball fight. My photo sessions are relaxed and fun, while we capture your family just as they are. No stress, no anxiety, just relaxed fun. I want my clients to print their photos, display them proudly, and enjoy them for many, many years to come (ie. hung in pretty frames on walls, displayed in a coffee table book or on a cool album block – just not stored on a hard drive! ).
I obviously love photography, but what I love most is capturing memories and moments. These memories and moments, whether on a family vacation or in a backyard, are what tells each family’s priceless “story”. My family’s story includes a rescued mutt whose purpose here is to make us laugh several times each day. We love to hike, camp, and travel. Yep, outdoors is where we’re happiest! We are currently working our way through the national parks. I’d love to capture your family’s story, so give me a call!
