DSC_0631-2Life is great!  It’s fun and exciting and I love capturing every moment that I can.

I grew up between Chicago and Champaign, IL in a once small town called Manteno.  I have great parents, siblings and friends who gave me an amazing childhood.  Like most kids I had plenty of interests and passions, one of those being photography.  Most of my interests changed over the years but photography, although pushed aside for a few years while I pursued what I though was going to be my career in Science, never went away and has resurfaced greater than ever.

I am a very proud mama of three beautiful babies.  My last little one was born in January 2016.  With the birth of my third, I decided to quit my job and focus on my babies and my photography.  Thanks to the support of my husband and children and the amazing clients I have made, I now feel like all my dreams are coming true!

Nikon is where my heart is, since owning my first 35mm film SLR in high school I have never strayed away.
Photography is an ever growing field with lots and lots to learn.  I have taken classes both in person and online and will continue to do so to learn about my camera, editing and general picture taking to keep up with the trends. With so much still to learn, I do promise I have the experience and confidence to provide you with excellent service and picture perfect products!

Located outside of Champaign in Villa Grove, IL I specialize in family, children and lifestyle photography.  Please contact me for questions about sessions and pricing.
