My journey to becoming a professional photographer was organic in nature and unveiled itself to me in a most natural way! My first child, my sweet baby girl, Estelle, was born. I so desperately wanted something to remind me of just how little she actually was. I quickly became obsessed with her little fingers and tiny toes, her chubby wrinkles, sweet smiles and that button nose. I quickly picked that camera up and began documenting her life, from her newborn days to her teen years and all the moments in between. Back in those days, I didn’t much know what I was doing, needless to say my newborn photography has come a long way since 2005. I spent the next five years honing my craft and dreaming of a business where I could spend my days with brand new life, doing what I love most!New life inspires me everyday as i nearly lost my own life twelve years ago to Stage 4 Colon Cancer. I am an anomaly, I should not have lived and because of that I strive to live my life to the fullest every single day. My personal love story began when I met my husband in 2014. We began to make plans, build our life and grow our family right here in Chicago, However, in search of a quieter life and possibly a little slower (HELLO BUSY SEASON) we made the tough but oh so rewarding decision to move our little family to Nashville, TN. For us, it has been the best choice for our family, though I am sad to leave the one I created at JNP and with all of you. Without hesitation or reserve I have left my second home and sanctuary to my best friend and right hand woman, Liz Mehta. I have all the faith and confidence that she will carry on my legacy for years to come.
