Welcome to the space on the web that I call home! I am a Chicago wedding and newborn photographer, who resides in the Chicago suburbs.

I first fell in love with photography at a young age, using my blazing hot pink 110 film camera as the medium with which I captured the world around me. I spent hours with that camera in hand, using all of my allowance to purchase film and pay for developing. I am not sure that I captured anything worthy of saving from that camera, as evidenced by the lack of photos from that time in my life! But that little camera started me off on a lifetime of interest in photography and photographing the world how I see it.

A few decades later and I can still be found with a camera in hand. My passion is to capture beautiful images for my couples. A photograph is an heirloom, the one tangible thing that we can touch and feel and in an instant be transported to another season of our lives. The moments that I capture are the first records of a marriage, a heritage. These are the moments that will be passed down from generation to generation – all in the form of a photograph. When you look back at your wedding day, I want you to remember the emotions and the moments that went by so quickly. I want you to be able to cherish those moments for a lifetime.

I am a fine art photographer – which means that I blend traditional coverage with a touch of photojournalism. I strive to capture the authenticity of your wedding day unobtrusively, artistically. I capture the simple moments, the fabulous details and the traditional portraits with my unique style and attention to detail. I desire to serve clients with excellence, great communication and attention to the details. Giving you an experience that you will never forget and imagery that reflects your love story.
