Sometimes there is nothing better than unposed laughter and love.
I discovered and fell in love with photography as a teenager and it has been my passion for over 30 years.
Before my children I focused on fashion and fine art, was lucky enough to work under the some of the Masters
and have my work showcased and published nationally and Internationally.
I figured out how to best celebrate 10 years since opening up my photography studio in Chicago,
it’s been 30 years since first picking up a camera, but my anniversary of 10 years of coming home.
When I started my journey I never contemplated photographing families, 5 weeks after signing the lease on my
studio in Garfield Park I found out we were expecting and I slowly started to crave being around children.
I felt the need to separate my work, to not confuse or turn away potential clients....
within the past 7 years I have found myself with 4 different websites and I am the one who is confused!
My ideal client wants to work with ME and all of my experiences, not just a fraction of it.
I love photographing everything and love capturing every moment for my clients, from their baby bump
to the first breath of their child to the end of life celebrations of a loved one.
Their engagement photos, the secret boudoir session the bride gifts her husband on their wedding day,
maternity photos, the birth of their child followed by the first family photo, onto the milestones.
I love to help my clients with their headshots to land their dream job,
a branding session to launch their new business or refresh their existing one.
Being their support for company events or making sure their employees are putting their best self forward with their headshots.
My clients can count on me to be there to capture the moments and help create those on a professional level.
Here’s your chance to get to know a bit more about me all in one place.
Thank you to all those who have played a part in this journey of 10 years, I’ve treasured every moment I’ve captured with you.
My own little maniacs brought me to the magic that is family photography and I look forward to helping you capture
that moment in time whether it is a newborn, child, family, or fashion and fine art.
I don't follow current trends, my style is my voice.
I am available for portraiture, headshots, family portraits, newborn portraiture,
school portraits, maternity photos, engagement photos, architecture, your corporate needs and other ideas you wish to create.

Have an amazing day,
Meet my assistant Gina, our oldest kids went to their first year of Preschool together and I've thought she was amazing from the first day I met her.
I love that our kids are still friends and I LOVE that she's found time to help me out and keep me on track!
She knows my schedule better than I and is always there to lend a hand
(as you can see from this photo, the model was a no show so Gina jumped in the hair and makeup chair, put on the gown and rocked this shoot!).
