Chicago Family Photographer



All Studio & On Location sessions are typically booked 1-2 months in advance.

I pride myself on exceptional customer service and a commitment to each family’s relationship and the creation of unique art for their home. During your complimentary online or phone consultation, I will get to know you. We’ll discuss your goals and personal style, so that I can create a session for you that complements YOU. Great portraits begin with a great relationship. Tell me about your home and your vision, and I’ll add in my creativity to make it happen.

Studio sessions take place in my Elgin home studio. The session fee includes my time and talent along with backdrops, props and clothing changes. If you see something you like in any of my galleries, be sure to mention it before your session. I work with controlled studio lighting and a plethora of props and set designs. The studio offers a fun but relaxed environment where I create a look that is timeless and sophisticated. When the weather is warmer, let’s take it outside! On Location Sessions make for some amazing and unique images, especially if the location is special to you. So consider carefully where you’d like to have your session, or I can recommend a spot for you.


I take pride in my work and only shoot with top of the line equipment.   I currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III, 50 1.2L, 24-70 2.8L, 100 2.8L Macro, 16-35 2.8L


I am now offering SAME DAY ordering appointments! That means we will have our session that will run 60-90 minutes. We will take a short 30 minute break, and then have our ordering appointment.
