In a nutshell, things I love (besides photography!): puppies, laughing til you cry, dark chocolate, hiking, camping, flowers, really good food, sunrises and sunsets, traveling, being off the grid, and of course, my awesome family and friends!

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”.  Whether that story is a senior's last year of high school before they head off to college, or of a family having fun together at a local park.  My family’s story includes my awesome husband and son, and our rescued mutt whose purpose here is to make us laugh several times each day.  We love to hike, camp, and travel. We are currently working our way through the national parks. I definitely have wanderlust.  Next up, Alaska!

I also have over 25 years of experience working with animals - as a vet tech, in obedience and agility classes, working at animal shelters, volunteering with animal rescue organizations, and as an animal lover in general.  Dogs, horses, goats, etc.  - I'm their biggest fan and know how to photograph them well!

My photos have been featured in the Elburn Herald newspaper, Kaneland Publications, Sugar Grove Herald, Gallery 125, The World Around You Instagram page, Illinois Shots Instagram page, Macro Moms Instagram Page, Lensbaby Love Blog Instagram Page, and the City of St. Charles Instagram page.

My goal for my clients is for you to PRINT your photos, display them proudly, and enjoy them for many, many years to come.  I’d love to capture your story, so let's talk!
