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 and have a job that I absolutely love.  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 moment in time.

I'm sure you've already guessed it, but I'm also a busy mom and wife.  When I'm not working you can most likely find me at a sporting event for our kids, relaxing at home or enjoying time with our family and friends. I love traveling to new places, 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 (ocean, pool, lake or pond) and snuggling after a long day with my boys.

My goal as a photographer is to provide an easy and wonderful experience for each client or family I photograph.  My pictures can be described as modern, yet timeless and natural.  Although, my job is a "photographer" I've always felt that connecting with people and making them feel comfortable is what I'm good at.

You can follow me on instagram or facebook to see my most recent work.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have by clicking the "Let's Chat" button.  I can't wait to become friends!

FIVE things I can't live without

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!
