I love my home state of Wisconsin and feel inspired by the gorgeous landscapes and the four seasons (especially that one between summer and fall). I'm a cat mom to Cleo and Dusty, and you can probably find me occasionally watching cat videos online in my spare time. I'm proudly American, passionately Italian, and stubbornly German, and enjoy learning about my family history. I like to surround myself with pretty things and people who make me happy. I enjoy mint chocolate chip ice cream, antiques, good grammar, rose gold everything, fields of wildflowers, the sounds of thunderstorms and crickets at night, thrift shopping, fine point pens, old creaky houses, and unique pieces of art.

Photography is something I've loved for nearly my entire life. When I was young I began with photographing sunsets from my backyard and told everyone I was going to be a photographer when I grew up (yes that's cheesy but totally true). I believe I inherited the artistic eye from my mom and the technical aptitude from my dad. I am formally educated in the areas of communications, photography, digital design, and fine arts; my first college photography course involved processing and developing my own film in the darkroom. I worked for a short time as an editor for another photographer, and then in 2011, decided to start my own business. (And I still shoot for fun- see my personal work HERE.)
