Let me tell you a little about me! I grew up in Southern IL, in a small town with great friends and lots of family! Great place to grow up in and I am so fortunate that I still have friends and family living there!
I've lived various places but consider three places "home", Centralia, IL, Peoria, IL and now Wichita, KS! It's hard to believe, but we are coming up on our TWO year anniversary of living in Wichita! We live in College Hill, which is a lovely neighborhood with lots of history and awesome friends.
After years working in the insurance world (yep, it can be boring, but I met millions of wonderful people who "do" insurance) I was so lucky to be able to stay home with my last two kids...Adan and Annie! I missed so much with Heather (my big girl) because I was working, or I was out of town, or just trying to make ends meet! But those of you who know her, know how great she is. Thanks all of you who helped raise that kid! Adan and Annie came to us via Guatemala, the land of the Eternal Spring (or something like that, to me it's just one of the most beautiful places in the world and I'd love to retire there). We all are lucky to have them and you will see Annie in many of my photographs. Adan, not so much. My 11 year old (almost 12, yikes)(he is 12 now!) boy doesn't really care for modeling! I can't forget that Heather and Dennis brought Lilly (Elizabeth, named after me!) and Roman into our lives. Lilly loves to model for her MiMi too! What a great group of kids! Lucky, blessed whatever you call it, I can say I have it!
Now why you are here! I love photography and have since I got my first Canon Rebel film camera! After practicing, playing and learning...it's now my job! Wow am I lucky to get to look and meet all of the beautiful people I photograph!
So call me if you are looking for something a little different. I like things a little funky, edgy and fun! We can work together to get you the images you want, ones that will capture those special moments that will last a lifetime.
I love maternity shots, babies, kiddos, families, seniors and will do a small wedding. I think you will find me easy to work with, or at least I hope!
Hope to her from you soon!
