I'm so glad you're here!
I'm a family and commercial photographer. I love color, stripes, and
sunshine. I'm a mama to four (yes, I am tired most of the time) and they
are my favorite distractions and my constant inspirations. One of
my favorite compliments is, "I feel like I know your kids!".
It brings me so much joy when I can capture people exactly as they
are in whatever season of life they're in. And whether I'm
photographing you, your kids, or your business, I strive to catch the
details that will take you back to that moment one day.
If you want to know more about me here are some fun facts:
One of my first memories is a heart-shaped prism in my playroom. I would lay on the floor and watch the rainbows dance on the walls. Years later I still find myself drawn to colors, sunlight, and movement.
My husband and I have 4 little ones (ages 6, 4, 2, and 1). 2 girls and 2 boys, we live in Central Illinois with our two dogs.
Meaningful connection is so important to me and I love the challenge of capturing that in pictures.
I'm an INFJ/enneagram 9-4-2 if you're into that.
I plan my trip itineraries around where I want to eat.
My husband and I are constantly talking about moving abroad..hoping to get around to it soon.
Milou is a french baby name I fell in love with a few years ago. I kept it on my baby name list but it never felt right with our other children's names. Milou comes from a combination of Louise-a name I share with my grandmother and Marie-my mother and sister-in-law's middle name. So it felt right to name my business after all of them.
