Welcome to my little corner in the world.  I'm so glad you're here!  I'm a pretty simple person who is passionate about my family and my profession.  See those people (and pup) up there, they're 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 portraits as much as I love creating them for you. 

Capturing genuine moments and providing my clients with not only an enjoyable experience, but beautiful products to enjoy 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:

Tacos

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

For almost 5 years, I photographed children with cancer at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago.  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.

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

5 favorite things

- Sara

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."
