"She makes you feel instantly comfortable!
even my non-photo loving husband loved being in front of the camera with her. she becomes a part of your family seamlessly weaving in and out of the wedding day always with a smile on her face"
- Jenn + David
Photography is my medium to celebrate life! Besides my skill with a camera, my clients appreciate my ability to make them feel comfortable + at ease in front of my lenses - so your wedding day or portrait session feels like hanging out with a long lost BFF.
I'm based out of Sterling, IL, but most of my clients hail from the Chicago area, + I travel frequently. An enneagram 6w7, I'm all about family, + when I'm not working, you can most likely catch me trying to keep up with my 2 girls + 2 dogs. PS, I'm a huge dog person, so if you tell me you're including yours in your photos, we're probably gonna get along great.
My little family of four is comprised of my husband, David, + me, plus our two girls, Aria + Abigail.
I admit, I am a sucker for a true crime podcast or documentary.
I am the biggest dog person you will ever meet, + I think dogs at weddings should be more of a thing.
