You & Me

YOU: You laugh a little too hard, you love life and all its adventures, and you won't think I'm crazy for climbing up a tree to get the perfect shot. You want to feel comfortable with your photographer, like old friends. You see photography as a family heirloom & you appreciate the time it takes to make a great image. Because of that, you want your photos to capture not just how you look but who you are, and you can't wait to get your hands on them and share them with the world!

ME: I believe photography is the closest thing we have to a time machine. It has the power to transport us to a different place and time and flood us with emotion all over again. I use natural light whenever possible because I believe it the makes for the most beautiful colors and skin tones and provides a depth and richness like none other. Whether we shoot in my studio or outdoors, I'm always chasing that last bit of sunlight.

Most days, you can find me playing choo-choos or exploring a new park with that little guy up there. Unless it's naptime, in which case I'll be working, diving into a new book, or catching up on Netflix! I am mostly known for remaining calm under pressure but patience is a constant work in progress. I love serving the world by being a bad-a** mama-jama, raising a respectful human, and magnifying your light within through my photos. As a photographer, I've been featured in both print and online, including Style Me Pretty, The Today Show, & Modern Jewish Weddings Magazine, but my greatest professional joy comes from seeing how happy, relaxed, & excited my clients are after our session. Want to get in on the love & fun? Drop me a line and say hello!

Our session will be fun and laid back, with your comfort as my top priority.

I think Pumpkin Spice lattes are the greatest thing since sliced bread and no, I don't care if that makes me basic.
I wish I could live in an Anthropologie catalogue. 
I feel lost without my camera.
My favorite color is purple. Always has been, always will be.
I grew up in Texas and spent 7 years in Chicago. The Windy City will always have a special place in my heart.
Dark chocolate gets me every time. The darker the better.
I try to never miss an episode of Jeopardy but sometimes my toddler and I get lost in our bedtime stories and Alex Trebec just has to wait. 
And macarons. J'adore les macarons.
When I was about 7 years old, I watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit 27 times. (Yes, I counted.) 
My great-great-great grandfather, Alejo Perez, was the youngest survivor of the Battle of the Alamo. 
I'm crazy in love with Harry Potter (the books, not the boy), but I also love East of Eden, A Hundred Years of Solitude, and Pride and Prejudice. Oh, who am I kidding ... I just love books. 

Oh, yeah. A few other (random) things...

At every shoot, my goal is to capture that special something that makes you YOU. I will never tell you to "Say Cheese!" but I will give you some guidance & direction to help put you at ease. I know it can be intimidating to be in front of the camera, even for the most extroverted among us, so our session will be relaxed and fun, with your comfort as my number one priority.
