Our family recently had a hell of a year that really compelled me to re-prioritize. We had a little toddler, bought an abandoned Chicago house, tore it down, and renovated a custom home. Every detail picked out by yours truly. On top of all of that, we found out we were expecting our second baby smack in the middle of delayed construction timelines! Life turned more interesting when a routine ultrasound turned ours into high risk, chock full of doubt and uncertainty.

Talk about life grabbing you by the collar and telling you to slow down and appreciate the little things.

Luckily for us, we have a happy ending. Life now is busy, a bit chaotic, unpredictable, and humbling- but I wouldn't have it any other way. It reminds me of why I gave up a solid career in dentistry to pursue this dream job of creating authentic, emotive images for incredible parents like you.

Life is so incredibly fulfilling when I get to spend time with all of YOUR blessings in life- babies, families, and your close-knit relationships. So you better believe that I'm OBSESSED with genuine, organic, and intimate moments that make you want just hug a little bit harder.

Moments come and go, and no matter how hard I try, my tired mom-brain can't seem to soak it all in each time. I love to capture the ones that shape life, and make you feel like you were right there. I want to capture those intimate moments and connections that I would covet for myself. Let me do all the work and worrying about all of the details. I make it my duty to make my sessions easy and fun for everyone in your crew! I look forward to getting to know you and delivering your precious memories you'll share with your own grandchildren one day. Because at the end of the day, that's just what it's all about, right?
