My life is simple.
I am a mother of two brilliant children. My husband invents toys.
I climb. I run. I travel. I am a ninja. (No really, I do Kung Fu).
I believe in love. It is the most powerful thing I have ever met.
Those are the essential parts of who I am, but it's probably
helpful for you to know that I have been photographing
professionally for well over a decade. I have my degree in
Psychology from the Argosy School of Psychology in Chicago, IL and
am an avid reader of photography books, lighting books, and camera
manuals. Sometimes other photographers ask me to do lectures or
workshops so I can share what I have learned about the Psychology
of photography, or various lighting techniques. It's all pretty
geeky stuff. But it's still important.
I am truly passionate about photographing people. Nothing compares
to the excitement and satisfaction I feel when I am able to
visually communicate the beauty, intricacies and fun of human
personalities and relationships.
I love my clients and their stories are important to me. Every
time I pick up the camera to photograph I am 100% committed to do
the best I can possibly do because I am excited to produce
something that will be unique and descriptive.
“The artist is the great simplifier.” -Van Gogh.
To take an infinitely complex set of personalities, interactions,
facial features and environments and distill it into a simple
descriptive photo. That is what I love.
