Lives in Chicago with her husband, Josh. Born on the East Coast but raised in Illinois, she moved to Chicago in 2009 for college. After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she went on to build her freelance photography business for fashion, editorial, and commercial work. In 2017, she and Josh joined forces and launched a wedding photography business called, Sheldon Collective. When she’s not photographing, you can find her rock climbing at First Ascent in Humboldt Park, finding her zen as she listens to podcasts and trains for the Chicago marathon, or doting on her adorable indoor succulent garden.

There’s nothing I love more than to use how I’m uniquely created to make someone else shine a little brighter. It brings an extra dose of joy to my photoshoots, it allows me to weave camaraderie and empathy into each client relationship, and it makes your experience of being in front of my camera a heck of a lot more comfortable, empowering, and fun.
You can’t meet me and not find out that doing life with Josh is my favorite adventure. We got married on the most beautiful September day in 2016 and now live in a sunny apartment in Humboldt Park, Chicago. We love biking to the lake in the summer, hosting bonfires in our backyard, road trips, rock climbing, and enjoying slow mornings with coffee in our sunroom.
