I started in middle school photographing my friends and peers with whatever camera was lying around. As the years went on I started photographing my siblings, cousins, and family friends. By senior year of high school, I bought my first DSLR and was working for a professional photography studio.
Photographing and working with youth and young adults is my calling. I really got pulled in when I started photographing my younger siblings’ sports. When my youngest brother started football, basketball, and wrestling in a new community, it really opened up a whole new world of opportunity and appreciation for me.
My goal has always been to help youth feel good about themselves, capture special (and often overlooked) moments/details, and maybe inspire them with and outside of photography. I am a sucker for any “sibling” or “mom/dad” moments as well.
My photographic inspirations have always been LIFE and National Geographic Magazines. I always hope my photography shows the truth and timelessness that those publications have produced.
I hope to have mentorship opportunities available in the future.
While I mainly work in Illinois and Wisconsin, my work has taken me from East to West Coast. I am able to go anywhere for assignment, based on availability.
