chef husband Cosmo to Chicago, where we wear significantly more layers. Besides photography, my loves include my dog/son Benny (I’m definitely a crazy dog lady), sushi, and the Publican. Oh, and if there’s ever a photo booth around, you can probably find me in it!

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Chicago but travel all over the world to document authentic love stories. I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, in a large family. As soon as I graduated from high school, I headed down to Santa Barbara to attend the Brooks Institute of Photography. Then I followed my chef husband Cosmo to Chicago, where we wear significantly more layers. Besides photography, my loves include my dog/son Benny (I’m definitely a crazy dog lady), sushi, and the Publican. Oh, and if there’s ever a photo booth around, you can probably find me in it!

WHAT I LOVE

ABOUT ME

Since they're sometimes my husband's only day off (that's the life of a chef!), we lay around with our dog Benny, go for a long walk (when it's not snowing), and then have a little date night.

LAZY sundays

I love popping a bottle with friends to celebrate ... or just on a Tuesday!

ALL THE Champagne

My husband has turned me into a shoe fanatic - from stilettos to sneakers, I don't think I'll ever have enough.

Shoes, SHOEs, shoes

Exploring the country and the world is so important to me; we go on at least one international trip a year (Mexico, Japan, and Italy were a few of our recent faves!). But my favorite thing is traveling to document love stories. I've got my passport; let's go!!

WORLD travel

My dream is to one day live on a huge plot of land and rescue all kinds of animals, from cats and dogs, to cows, pigs, and more dogs.

PRETTY MUCH ALL Animals
