Lee Sargent

So glad God put actor Lee Sargent on my path! A fun fact is that we both are from Chicago (one town apart) and yet we worked together in Los Angeles. :) We had an amazing time and Lee seriously has a heart of gold! Wishing him the very best!

Sometimes the greatest privilege I have is capturing a portrait of a mom and her newborn baby. Nothing compares to the pure love and joy of it all.


Chloe + Christian

I love these two.
They are rarely across my camera these days,
but when I have an opportunity,
I do love to photograph them.
My heart.

“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.” – Tim Keller
