35 Years of experience

Hi! Thanks so much for checking out my profile today. A little about me;

I started out when the art director at my mothers advertising agency gave me a camera. I began posing and photographing my friends like they were models in the ads my mother created. I attended The American Academy of Art in Chicago for Photography and visual arts and there has been a camera in my had ever since.


Do I have a specialty? It's probably capturing moments no one else notices. As much as I love to direct people, my favorite photos are the ones where people have forgotten I was there. That is when people show their true humanity - A moment between a father and son at breakfast, A mother and her daughter before her big day, new parents holding their newborn two five min after birth and a child doing something naughty when no one is watching.


I also do a lot of:

Real Estate

Product

Social Content including lifestyle shoots

Events - Any kind. (Weddings of 75 or smaller, engagements and elopements)

Awards, honors and recognition

- My work for several boutique hotels has been chosen for industry magazine covers seven times in the past two years. - I've won spots in Dream Magazine for my artful portraits. - I've been awarded spots to show my work at different small art shows around Chicago. _ I was one of 6 women to be chosen out of a few hundred to work with the Photographer Kirsten Lewis in her home in Denver CO. She taped the workshop and I can be seen in those tutorials today.

A fun fact about me

I was once hired to be the life size Heathcliff (like Garfield but not as famous) for the Chicago gift show. I had so much fun screwing with people and the kids loved him. it was so fun I jumped on for another year. Those costumes are extremely hot. Altough they have fans in them, they rarely work. Next time you go to Disney World; be extra nice to those working on a hot summer day in one of those costumes.
