Capture the moments.

As a mother of two rambunctious little boys (my little ducks), I know too well that they don't stay little for long. Their brand new wrinkly skin quickly fills in and become squeezable chunky rolls that disappear almost at the exact moment they take their first step. Before you've even survived the sleepless nights, they've already become happy little people. You find yourself constantly asking, "Where did the time go?"

I can't stop time (yet), but I can help preserve these sweet memories by photographing your little ones- wrinkles, rolls and all.  I adore capturing babies in pure and natural light at my Chicago South Loop home studio. However, I am also available for on-location baby and family sessions.  

Send me a note and let's schedule a session for your little one!

Photos for Hope

Over the last few years as I've been working with babies, I felt something tugging at my heart. It took me a while to figure it out but I finally realized that I wanted to use my camera as a tool that take in light to help give light back into the world. While I explore this avenue, I am committing 20% my session fees to be donated to worldly organizations doing incredible work. From combatting the Ebola outbreak, providing emergency relief from natural disasters, and protecting and educating young girls around the world, we invite you to find out more and consider donating to these organizations as well.
