I'm a photographer based on the Northside of Chicago who primarily specializes in portrait photography -- though I enjoy photographing landscapes as well as I love to travel often.
My experience with a wide variety of clientele gives me the unique ability to comfortably connect and collaborate with my subjects and it allows me the tools necessary to ensure I have a fun, effective shoot with any client.
I've worked as a professional photographer for the past 5+ years, but my interest in photography bloomed in early childhood.
As a kid, I was initially fascinated with polaroid and film cameras, spending countless hours scouring online forums to find camera manuals and answers to my boundless questions.
I still shoot a high volume of film but enjoy shooting digital photography just as much! You can usually find me googling the latest camera tech.
My role as a portrait photographer offers me a special opportunity in which I can exercise my love for photography and my passion for connecting with others. I take pride in helping people feel comfortable in front of the camera and, of course, delivering stellar final photos!
We'll meet at Oromo Cafe; this coffee shop is at the heart of Lincoln Square, a quaint pocket of the Northside.
Oromo is steps away from the train, a courtyard, a park, and overall situated in a solid area for photos, away from the hustle and bustle of a busier section of the city. We're also close to Oz Park, the waterfront and a bunch of trendy coffee shops.
