Hi. Thanks for visiting. 

Each of us experience life differently... and I love to capture how we do that. Just how momentous a wedding day can be... Just how zany and fun family time is. My style is an amalgamation of my personal artistic touch with a candid approach. My effort is to provide work that is reflective of the events, feelings, and moments that occur. Whether it be a pivotal moment like "I do" or a quiet intimate glance, my aim is to document your wedding moment by moment. My photography is complimented most by my vigor, enthusiasm, and creative drive! I strive to give clients authentic, candid, and creative photography. 

I grew up outside of Rockford, Illinois and received my Bachelors of Fine Arts with a concentration in printmaking (not photography!) in addition to Art History and Psychology Minors from Rockford University. My involvement and appreciation of art, photography, and people has been nothing short of a lifelong endeavor. There's few things I love more than creating with and working with others. It's my passion. 

I'm not just a photographer. I'm a mother to a spunky smiley baby named Clementine, partner to the roguishly handsome and talented Ryan Davis (make sure to check his work out, too) and a proud parent to his son Felix! I'm a daughter and I love to go fishing with my dad and meet my mom for coffee. I'm a proud aunt and love Joey, Kysa, Levi, Addy,  AJ & Nollie to pieces.  Winston and Moose, my trusty newfoundlands, are our fur babies that are sometimes confused for horses. I'm a believer in giving back and true Midwesterner at heart, even halfway around the planet when I climb mountains in New Zealand (oh yea, I love to travel!)
