First and foremost, I am a wife to my best friend and mother to two of the most beautiful girls ever (also my main models ;) ). Photography is my passion and creative outlet. Taking pictures isn't a job to me because I enjoy it THAT much.
My enthusiasm for photography started at a young age. I owned a countless number of disposable cameras, Polaroids, hand-me-down Canons and now to my own DSLR (thanks hubby for the best wedding gift ever). I decided to begin this journey in my own business shortly after having my oldest daughter. Initially, I just wanted amazing pictures to remember how sweet and little she was because "they grow up so fast." This led to wanting to freeze time and capture memories for other friends and families. I often immerse myself in old photographs and relive the special moments in life. Not sure if this is all kids, but my daughter LOVES to look at pictures (mostly of herself) as well as videos on my phone or scattered throughout our home. As a photographer, my goal is to capture those moments for you and your family.
I am a detail-oriented photographer and take great pride in creating well-defined, vibrant pictures. I was an elementary school teacher's aide for two years and a high school volleyball coach for three, so I love working with young children, college-bound students and everything in between. I enjoy meeting new people across the Northwest Indiana Region, so feel free to contact me if you're interested in a session with me!
