Chicago children & family photography.
I always wanted to be a teacher. I have a masters degree in education and several years of teaching experience. After maternity leave with my first son-- my sweet new baby boy became very sick. He was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder called Severe Congenital Neutropenia. I couldn't return to work. It seems like every teacher has a "side hustle" -photography was mine. After my little guy got sick, it was time for me to turn my photography into my full time gig so I could be with my son more while still working-- with a little bit more flexibility. Since 2016, I've been running a successful full time business. My son is doing great and we have another little one on the way. The universe has a funny way of making sure you do what you are made to do. I wouldn't change a thing. Because of what our little family has been through, I love giving my clients tangible captured moments. Taking photos of your babies the way they are now is SO important. They are only little for so long.
