MY VISION:

Oftentimes I feel like I see better with a camera in front of my face; my clients are so much more than a subject---they have stories to be told. When I was 7 years old, my parents gifted me with a tape recorder. It became my aim to document life in my home—an ongoing narration. At 11 years old, I spent my carefully saved money on a point-and-shoot digital camera and took my story-telling to a new level. I created visuals to go with the stories I was experiencing and observing around me. Ever since I was that little 7 year old and running around with my tape recorder, my hobbies, dreams, and energy have been invested in documenting or, rather, story-telling. I fall in love with people and the relationships between their hearts and personalities. Photography allows me to capture this through the lens; my love of journalism contributes to my work as

well----seeking those real and raw moments that allow stories to unfold.

 

MY EXPERIENCE:

In college I embraced both loves of mine and studied the visual arts and the written word. This worked as a catalyst to turn what was once a hobby into a career----a career that combines my love of people with my desire to create and tell stories. In school I studied Photography, Graphic Design, and Journalism. All three work within every photograph I take: image, composition, and narrative. Upon college graduation, I worked in West Loop, Chicago at an established photography studio for three years. This experience led me to more accomplishments and aspirations. I worked amongst a variety of society circles, corporations, charitable galas, as well as in-studio and on-location portraiture.

 

MY EVERY DAY:

I can never have too many blueberry muffins.

On a typical day, you will find me and my husband happily biking around

Chicago---oftentimes to the latest bakery (refer to the above point).

My current daydreams include backpacking the West Coast.

 

I currently live and operate out of Chicago, but my camera has a travel itch like no other. Don't hesitate to contact me if you are out of the city, state, or country!
