More about me…


I graduated from Elmhurst College with a BA in Political Science; summa cum laud. Eventually,  I earned a certificate in Paralegal Studies from Duke.

After undergrad, I earned a license in Cosmetology. I currently hold a license in the states of Illinois, Rhode Island, and Virginia.

While in college, I focused my coursework on liberal arts, business, and art. My art coursework included jewelry making, drawing, oil painting, watercolor, sewing, and 35mm film photography.

My coursework in photography taught me the fundamentals of using a 35 mm camera and how to develop film in a dark room. I remember the ‘ah-ha’ moment when I understood the “exposure triangle” and how to read a light meter. It’s funny how many black and white 8×10’s I have of my dog. While I love the power of my Nikon D850 DSLR, I miss being forced to print my photos.


My professional photography career began when I got a job as a lab tech at Wolf Camera. However, I spent most of my career as a professional hairstylist and makeup artist for film, television, and print. Over the years, I have built my resume with some of the best photographers and videographers. I humbly credit this experience for giving me an understanding of photography.

At any rate, I have been doing photography professionally for 7 years. My experiences have been varied as you will see in my portfolios. I take pride in my work and care about my customers. Ultimately, I really love being a part of the happiest days of your life.

Personal Attributes

My personal hobbies include knitting, woodworking, baking, gardening, coding, and graphic design. Don’t be surprised if I knit something for your baby to wear at their session!


In conclusion, my skill sets translate well into the field of photography. I consider myself a well-rounded person with a lot to offer my clients.
