I am a storyteller at heart. I tell stories with pictures. It's my job to help preserve the moments that are most important to you.
I'm the one in my family who collects all the old photos. I even made my own photo album with pictures of me, since my parents seemed too busy (I was the middle child)! Looking at these old photos, I try to understand the stories hidden there, or remember those moments from my own childhood. All that's left now are the photos - priceless!
I specialize in portraits, branding photography for entrepreneurs and small business people, and event photography.
I earned a BFA in Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This fine art background, combined with my photojournalistic style, informs all of my work. I take time to collaborate with you, and work hard to capture your unique personality. One of my special gifts is providing an atmosphere where people can relax and be themselves in front of the camera (it helps that I was a social worker in my former career).
I'm there to help you remember the moments, to show you in your glory, just as you are.
