Me: I have Midwest roots... I was raised in Illinois, went to college in Iowa and am currently living in Chicago. No matter how far I travel, my heart always comes right back here. I love the genuine, kind people and our incredible work ethic. My wonderful little family is made up of my high school sweetheart turned husband, TJ, and our golden retriever, Bill Murray. I consider myself a wanderlusting homebody... I'm equally happy snuggled on the couch with our pup or out exploring far off places. I recently got back from Morocco and am busy dreaming of the next place on my list... I have it narrowed down to Cuba, India or Kenya. It's a tie. When not snapping photos, I can be found making a mess in the kitchen, reading with a big cup of tea or playing with flowers.
My work: My dad always told me you should build your career upon something you completely loose track of time when doing... for me photography is just that. When taking photos I have a huge smile on my face and am completely in the moment. After spending 5 years working in a corporate role, I took a leap of faith and started my own photography business. Now I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I photograph products, people and places. Within each image I create, I seek to incorporate a big dose of light, love and color. My personal aesthetics are built upon clean visuals and strong lines. My goal is always to create images that bring happiness to those that see them.
