What we are...

Visual storytellers.

Before making a single image, we spend time getting to know you. We want to capture natural moments and show off your personality, your child's genuine smile, your fiancé's tenderness. We'll chat for a while before determining what you, our client, want out of this experience. This means your photographs are unique to you!

With children, this often means allowing them to play and interact with parents or with each other, resulting in giggles and grins and sweet moments between family members.

With couples, this means stepping back and allowing them to talk to each other, laugh and hold each other without interference.

With newborns, sessions are paced for the baby's comfort. Need to stop for a feeding? Sure. Sleeping? Excellent. Wide awake and wants to be held? We can do that!

With weddings, it's a whole different ballgame. We will meet with you a few times to ensure your big day goes smoothly and that we will capture all the beautiful moments you've been dreaming of for years! Your package will be personally tailored to fit your needs. Contact us at 618-843-4213 for a consultation.

What we are not...

Shutter monkeys. 

No cookie-cutter poses, no generic pictures. We know that your family is special, and we want your photographs to be just as special! We take time to craft images with years of experience.

How did you get started in this business?

As long as I can remember, I have loved photography. I bought my first camera in fifth grade after saving up all my allowance and birthday money. Over the years, my hobby grew into a passion which blossomed into my career. I attended Southern Illinois University Carbondale, where I earned a bachelor's degree in photojournalism. I chose photojournalism because the skills I learned were more applicable to the storytelling style of photographs I prefer to make.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I love working with clients who view photographs as treasured memories. I hope my images evoke emotions as the viewer feels what you felt when I made your photo:  the bond between a mother and child, the excitement of your wedding day, the joy of your family being together.
