Learn a little about where I started...

I began my photography journey as a young 8-year-old girl in Wisconsin snapping photos on family vacations with my older brother and dad. When we returned home and I showed my mom our adventures, the photos I snapped made my storytelling that much more lively and memorable! Through this practice, I pivoted to photographing friends when I was 18, and I began to get attention from those wanting a photographer for everything from family photos to seniors, maternity to newborns, pets to home spaces,  and eventually engagements, weddings, and elopements. If you're anything like me, you love putting an image to a story and showing off your past memories to your loved ones for years to come! The best part about sharing is that you get to make memories of anything that you want, right NOW!  Everyone's story is so special and personal, my specialty and favorite part of my work is getting to capture what you'd most like to remember, and having images that you want to tell stories about forever.

With over a decade of professional photography, I believe in providing a personalized experience for every client. I take the time to get to know you and your story so that we can capture your special moments in a way that is authentic and true to you. My goal is to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere so that you can enjoy your photo shoot and get the best possible memories to look back on for years to come! In 2021 I moved to Maui to capture commercial tourism spaces and adventures full-time, which brought about amazing opportunities, experiences, new friends, and the most scenic landscapes and sunsets I have ever seen! Now I have moved back to Wisconsin and serve the Milwaukee/Chicago area while continuing to capture couples who want either a traditional wedding experience or a more intimate adventure across the globe!
