Welcome!  I'm so glad you're here!  I'm a pretty simple gal who is passionate about my family and my profession.  My family is my whole world and I'm first and foremost their person.  Photography is my other passion and creative outlet.   I love helping others feel comfortable in front of the camera (or better yet, forgetting it's there).  I want you to adore your pictures as much as I love creating them for you.

Capturing your moments and providing not only an enjoyable experience, but beautiful products to display your favorite pictures is what I love most about my job.  Getting to know my clients and becoming more than just their photographer, but a family friend is the coolest thing ever. I've been a professional photographer all of my adult life and can't imagine doing anything else.

When not working you can most likely find me at a sporting event for our kids, our family cabin, or on an adventure with with my crew.  I love good music, a warm cup of coffee, Jesus,  being close to the water (ocean, pool, lake, or pond), and snuggling after a long day with my boys.

FIVE things I can't live without

travel through Europe

someday i want to:


Have you been to Anchos and Agave in Bloomington? It's so good and such a cute restaurant!  Try the Prickly Pear Margarita, it's delicious!

If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, it would be?

The Marvelous
Mrs. Maisel

Most likely to binge watch

 Photographing children with cancer at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago for almost 5 years.  With the help of a non-profit organization, I provided prints for their families.  I'll never forget the impact those pictures meant for so many families.

Creating 3 lives was also pretty amazing! 

What's one of the most meaningful things you've ever done?

I love working with Julie and our photos always come out so beautifully.  I don't know how she does it with the lighting, the setting, the poses - everything always looks perfect.  The hardest part is choosing a favorite.  The sessions are very relaxed and comfortable and she's always fun to work with.  I'm excited to have Julie photograph more of our family moments."


You captured me so well! I never thought I was photogenic. Thanks for making me look fabulous!


julie is amazing
