I am a fourth-generation redhead whose true passion is for story.
Everyone has a story, and I want to hear, facilitate, and participate in as many as I can. Whether it’s photographing a wedding day, serving throughout childbirth, designing a brand logo, laughing and crying with friends, or just reading a fantastic book, I find stories to be the way I best interact with the world.
As for slightly more boring and certainly less philosophical stuff about me, I hold a degree in English (there’s that story stuff again) from Wheaton College in Illinois and am a certified birth doula through DONA International. After working in private and public high schools for several years, I became an in-home childcare provider for several families while doing wedding and portrait photography on the weekends. Over the years I’ve done freelance editing for authors and bloggers as well. When I’m not working for my clients or managing the elementary school office where I spend my weekdays, I am corralling my wild and crazy 5-year-old, Eli, who is usually either inventing a rope that will help astronauts be able to pull themselves out of black holes or having a dance party to boom-boom-tish music.
I absolutely love helping clients discover how to best represent their story through their logo and website.
