I've known this wonderful girl since she was teeny-tiny. She's grown up to be especially lovely and wonderful.She's the last of 4 in her family to graduate from HPHS, and it has been an absolute blast to make a portrait of each of her family's HS seniors. Capturing a young spirit preparing to step out into the big world is important- because it's a special time. So 2020 is YOUR year beautiful girl. Go do all the great small and big things in this world. Make it count. I know you will!

Working with an author to create the portrait that will represent her brand on her new book. No pressure. Just like her, we absolutely nailed it!

Celebrating a special day with this beautiful family. Three generations of smiles and jokes. One beautiful together.

This family was preparing two of three boys to head off to college for freshman year. Smart moms know when it's time to schedule a family portrait session!

I've been photographing this gorgeous family since I started my studio, 8 years ago. It's been such fun to see the girls grow up in front of the camera, but the most delightful thing for me is seeing how much FUN they all have during the session. I wish I could take all the credit, and although I take pride in making the experience relaxing and stress-free, this family simply enjoys having fun together. And there's no doubt that the genuine love and closeness comes across in ...

That H.S. Senior that you've watched grow up. She really is that pretty, inside and out.

I love working with confident young women, who know what they like, and are clear in their ability to share a vision. In this case, it was all about authenticity. And, for those who know me, that's my favorite! There is no missing the talent, spirit and smarts of this senior. She's on to exciting things come August! Can't wait to see what she does in this world. Such a treat to make her portraits!!!

This little family has to be one of my favorite of all time! I photographed the wedding, the first born, and second- and all four of these lovely, sweet lovelies. I get to witness joy, growth and family connections on my side of the lens. It's the best, and so very REAL. Never too much authenticity in my opinion!
When your clients are in the city celebrating their wedding anniversary, you meet them at the Art Institute to capture the love.
How lucky am I that this sweet little family asks me to create their family portraits in Chicago, when they've moved to Pennsylvania? I adore seeing kids, in addition to my own, grow up in front of my camera.
