Nothing compares to having the sweetness of a new born in the studio for a session. Their parents are filled with love, sleepiness and delight all combined to create the perfect combination for tender photographic moments.

For me photographing those little swaddled bundles of joy can make me almost weepy. From clicking the...

If you are looking to have an experience photographer, who makes the experience fun for everyone and captures those beautiful images of your daughter or son in the Spring light, then call me to book your session.

When it comes to getting to photograph a fireman, nothing beats the chance to capture images of family. Yes, this good-looking and hardworking young man is my cousin's son.

When it comes right down to it...there is nothing like black & white images. 

Juicy, rich, warm brown, with deep shades like the old #Agfa double thick paper. In particular my favorite was #Portriga. Back in the day I would go through boxes of that paper creating prints in my small handbuilt darkroom. 

Gosh, s...

Sometimes, even when the weather is still forecasting snow there are a few beautiful mild end of winter days worthy of getting me out of the house to brave the cold. That was the case this past weekend when I took my sweet pea dog wrigley-girl for a good muddy walk at the Conservation area near my house. The best part is t...

What an exciting milestone to have my first ribbon cutting for the new studio.

It is light-filled, spacious and every bit as dreamy as I had hoped for all those many

years ago - before I quit my desk job and made the leap of faith for my passion. 


I'm happy to share a few of the images from the day with you... and the lovely...

For years my camera was the Hasselblad medium 2 1/4" format camera. It was a solid 5lb camera and when you added lenses it would become my weekly workout. That iconic camera brought together the best of everything; large negatives, old fashion top view, amazing lens quaity and then there was the square. Oh, I do so love ca...

A few weeks back I made it over to Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich, for a visit with Jose and Fred. These two owners have a story worth hearing and drinks worth sipping. On this quiet Wednesday, in the dark back barrel room, they were going through the process of "proofing" their whiskey. 


All of their sp...
