the experience

My photography is all about capturing the essence of a memory - every detail, every touch, every laugh. I want to show you and your loved ones exactly as you are, and that means documenting every moment with authenticity and honesty. Awkward, directed photoshoots? Not my thing! Our time together will be laidback, fun, and candid (no forced posing over here). The best moments are always caught when you’re least expecting it - so make a day of it and just enjoy spending quality time with your family. That’s where the magic happens!

Authentic moments, captured with love

Let’s work together

You have full permission to raid my wardrobe - and I’ve got so many beautiful options to choose from. The best part? You don’t need to worry about sourcing the perfect outfit, ironing it, or washing it afterwards. I’ve got that all handled! Just turn up, change into your clothes, and have fun! Roll around in the grass, make mud pies with your kids, dance in the rain - don’t be afraid to get a little dirty in your outfit. That’s how we get the best shots!

Drool-worthy client closet

The clothes you wear can make or break a shoot, which is why all my sessions include styling advice and access to my curated client closet.

That’s why I include videography in all of my shoots - it’s the perfect way to capture every beautiful, candid, raw detail. There’s something so special about seeing a moment in time in a photo, and then seeing every little part of that memory come to life through video.


The magical combination of photo and video has the power to take you right back to a memory, and to see it all exactly as it happened. 


The Process

Receive your gallery

 I’ll spend time going through and editing the photos from our shoot. Once I’ve finished, I’ll send you a link to your gallery.


Shoot day

Time for the best part - the photoshoot! All you need to do is show up to your shoot with your loved ones and have an amazing time. I’ll do the rest!


 Get in touch

After filling in my contact form, I’ll get in touch with you to chat a little more about what you’re after. Once you’ve signed your contract and paid your retainer, you’re officially booked in!


Plan it out

We’ll plan out your shoot so the big day goes off without a hitch. I’ll provide styling advice, access to my client closet, and send you a shoot guide and questionnaire.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located? Do you travel?

I am based out of Darien, IL. I shoot in the Chicagoland area focusing on the west suburbs, and I also frequently shoot in the Madison, WI area. Looking for somewhere else? I’m always down to travel! Travel fees apply for locations more than 50 miles away from Darien, IL. 

What is your turnaround time for delivering photos?

Sessions take up to 6 weeks, and weddings up to 12 weeks. Turnaround times can vary depending on the time of year - busy seasons will typically be right at the turn around time!

You’ll receive your hand-edited, high resolution digital images in a personal online gallery via an email link. You can download your images directly to your computer, phone or tablet and order prints through a professional printing lab linked to your gallery.

What about weather issues?

Having lived in the midwest almost my entire life, I’m all too familiar with the chaos weather can bring. For sessions, I’ll always do my best to work with you to find a replacement date if the weather is an issue. Rain or snow can create some truly beautiful photos, so it can be worth embracing the weather if you’re up for it!

For events and weddings, I’ll work with whatever happens on the day. Rain, hail, or shine - I’ll create something magical out of it!

How do I book you?

Head over to my contact page and let me know what you had in mind! If you’re ready to secure your booking, I require a signed contract and retainer. Dates can’t be reserved until these have been received.

Do you offer mini sessions?

I occasionally offer mini sessions depending on the season. Some previous mini sessions I have offered include a Christmas Tree Farm, and seasonal or holiday themed studio sessions. Outside of these, I don’t offer mini sessions. 

What happens if we need to cancel/reschedule?

Life happens - I totally get it! I’m super flexible and happy to work with you if you need to reschedule your session. If a cancellation is necessary, your deposit is forfeited - but I am happy to apply it to a future session.
