I grew up in southeastern Wisconsin (Lake Geneva area) and moved to Rockford when I got married in 2006. I have 2 little boys who keep me very busy. Micah is almost 4 and Matthew was just born in December. My husband works at home as a consultant/programmer and I absolutely never get sick of him being around. I love chocolate chip cookies, reading, movies, and photographing babies and their families, of course!
I love shooting with both natural light and studio lights - I go back and forth - they are both my favorite for different reasons. I am shooting with the D700 right now. I use my 50 1.4 for indoor/studio work and my 85 1.8 for outdoor sessions. I think what I enjoy the most about photography are the people and their stories. I get to witness the giddiness between a newly engaged couple, the bond between siblings, the overwhelming love a new mother has for her newborn – it’s all incredible to see and it is a lovely reminder to look at my own family with fresh eyes. Whenever I get caught up in the technical or business aspects of photography, I remind myself that more than anything, it's all about capturing people & memories.
