About Me

aboutme copyMy family likes to joke that my nieces think my camera is one of my body parts. The need to always be able to capture moments started when a photography teacher told me to bring a camera everywhere. Obviously I took that to heart.

My home base is between Wilmette and Libertyville in Illinois. I love making my way down to Chicago for photo shoots in an urban setting that only the Windy City can provide. I frequently travel to San Francisco Bay Area, Berkeley and Livermore for work.

I specialize in portrait photography (newborns, children and families) and have a special place in my heart for the lifestyle approach when it comes to family photos.


As a mom of two, I understand the importance of being here now for your family moments. I want to help you capture those special family times so you can be in the pictures instead of behind a camera or phone camera.

One personal project that was close to my heart had me  traveling to schools and non profit projects run by local leaders in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. I documented the day to day lives of the people involved in hopes of spreading their message and bringing financial support to the communities where these projects are much needed.
