I'm a photographer based on the Northside of Chicago who primarily specializes in portrait photography -- though I enjoy photographing landscapes as well as I love to travel often.
My experience with a wide variety of clientele gives me the unique ability to comfortably connect and collaborate with my subjects and it allows me the tools necessary to ensure I have a fun, effective shoot with any client.
I've worked as a professional photographer for the past 5+ years, but my interest in photography bloomed in early childhood.
As a kid, I was initially fascinated with polaroid and film cameras, spending countless hours scouring online forums to find camera manuals and answers to my boundless questions.
I still shoot a high volume of film but enjoy shooting digital photography just as much! You can usually find me googling the latest camera tech.
My role as a portrait photographer offers me a special opportunity in which I can exercise my love for photography and my passion for connecting with others. I take pride in helping people feel comfortable in front of the camera and, of course, delivering stellar final photos!
We'll meet at Dayglow Coffee; this coffee shop near Palmer Square, a quaint pocket of the Northside.
Dayglow is steps away from really nice backdrops, a courtyard, a park, and overall situated in a solid area for photos, away from the hustle and bustle of a busier section of the city. We're also close a bunch of trendy coffee shops that we can hop into for an outfit change.
The overall experience could not have gone better! I was very hesitant going in what it would be like, but I could not be more satisfied with how the pictures came out. The photographer was very kind and the whole process from easing my anxiety to finalizing the date to going through was difficult for me but a great decision that I made.
Great to work with. Made taking photos feel easy and not awkward.
