Welcome to The Blog

In addition to photography, I love writing. Call it an excuse to use my Art History degree a bit more literally, but I love elaborating on my shoots to give  context and share what’s going on behind the scenes. You’ll find my thoughts on other things too, like my favorite places to shoot in Chicago and around the world, and more of my work you might not see anywhere else. I'll digress into other things I’m passionate or thinking about, but hey, it’s MY blog. There are no rules!

Tyler Lumar should be alive today. Plain and simple. You can sign the petition fighting for his justice, read more about his story here, here, and here, and download the images below for social media use to continue sharing what happened to him.

Justice for Tyler Lumar

While my relationship status doesn’t hinge on this hardware, I won’t lie: I love a shiny thing. Rings have always been my jewelry of choice, and photographing this one was extra special!

Bling-bling! (We got the ring!)

Working with Breanna was a literal and figurative walk in the (Ping Tom Memorial) park. We met up for an afternoon on the south bank of the Chicago River to capture some chic stills in the last days of summer, but it was really Breanna who brought the heat.
