Vision. Anticipation. Patience. My curiosity enables me to capture authentic moments in time, in which the pieces of the puzzle converge, fleeting elements coalesce and a photograph is made. Whether you are looking for someone to capture your family's authentic moments or to find the perfect framed artwork that you'll enjoy seeing on your wall for years to come, I am so glad you've stopped by for a visit.
My passion for storytelling began as a tween and evolved at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. That launched my 14-year career in the news business at WTTW, Chicago’s PBS station. Although my news days are behind me, my passion for connection through storytelling still exists through the lens of my Canon DSLR and my iPhone 11.
I enjoy freezing time by capturing a look, an expression, joys and struggles. I find inspiration on the street, in a new city, in patterns in the sand. I celebrate wood, rust, texture and geometry. Looking up, looking down, looking into people’s eyes and watching children play are particularly satisfying. Depth and movement provide extra encouragement.
I am patient, yet persistent. I take the time to let a scene develop and evolve until it reveals itself to me. This results in a photograph with visually pleasing composition, providing a sense of balance, sometimes clean, sometimes gritty. Always compelling and honest. I love excluding the expected and including the unexpected, turning a seemingly mundane scene into a thought-provoking image.
