This is my crew; they’re the best.


The Inspiration Behind My Work

Nothing has pushed me to look inward, to learn and grow the way motherhood has, and it has profoundly impacted the way I see the world and therefore my work. What I value has shifted, the way I see children has changed, and I have a clearer vision of what I want to look back on in the years to come. The photos I cherish the most are those of our everyday. Images of the seemingly unremarkable moments that capture the essence of who we are and the stage of life we are in. They bring me back to the moments my mom heart longs for after they have passed.

While I can’t be a fly on the wall for your everyday moments in the same way, I do believe we can create time together that is meaningful, where your family enjoys a typical day’s activities and connects with each another in an honest way that allows me to capture the little moments that will mean so much down the road.

A Little About Me

I studied photojournalism and entrepreneurship at Indiana University and have been capturing families for 15 years and weddings for 13 years. I’m married to the most kind, grounded, supportive, and fun guy around, Pat. Everyone that meets him adores him. We live in the Chicago suburbs with our two boys Liam and Theo and spend most of our free time together as a family. We all love being outdoors and you can often find us on a walk, bike ride, hanging at the beach, or camping. We travel as much as we can but are perfectly happy enjoying time at home too. The simple life really is the best life.

I’d love to learn more about you and your family.
