lets be friends

I graduated from Beloit College with a BA in studio art, and a minor in creative writing. Studying photography for me was never a hobby turned career. It has been something I’ve worked hard for and am incredibly passionate about. I’ve run my own boutique photography business for the last twenty years. My favorite photographers-for so many reasons are Dianne Arbus, Paul Strand, and Annie Leibowitz.  I also love the lifestyle photography of Slim Arrons, a huge contrast from the later. But I am drawn to all the colors in his photographs.

I believe that the best pictures are caught during those in-between moments. I love that art and journalism all become one when photographing people. This is what led me to become a wedding and family photographer. When it comes to capturing your outdoor wedding, I couldn’t be more in my comfort zone. I Although you might be anxious about being in front of the camera, I’ll make sure you feel comfortable, relaxed and easy in front of the camera. I’ll give gentle directions to help you into beautiful, natural poses without actually “posing.” Blending genuine intimacy with the surrounding landscape is what I do best.

The couples who I work with are laid back, and trust the art that I create. I focus on the couple, the emotions, and the interactions between you. I am not in it for any other reason than to make beautiful pictures of you and the day as it unfolds. If you think this sounds like you, and can imagine yourself as one of my clients, I'd love to know you!
