First off I want to say thank you for being here!  I feel blessed beyond words to be able to work with so many wonderful people.  I have been a photographer all of my adult life and can't imagine doing anything else.  As long as I can remember I have loved taking and looking at pictures.  I'm still in awe of how a single picture can take you back to that very moment in time.  

I'm also a busy wife and mom trying to soak in every minute with my kids.  When I'm not working you can most likely find me at a sporting event, relaxing at home or enjoying time with our family and friends. I love traveling to cute beach towns, good food, long walks outside with a friend, listening to music, reading, a warm cup of coffee or hot tea, being close to the water and snuggling after a long day with my boys.

My goal as a photographer is to provide a fun and easy experience for each client or family I photograph.  Although, my job is "taking pictures" I've always felt that connecting with people and making them feel comfortable is what I'm good at.  I can't wait to show you how beautiful you truly are!

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?

 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!
