Christmas In Las Vegas!

Monday, March 1st, 2010

My mother moved to Las Vegas back in 2003 after my father passed away. Although holidays are still sometimes hard without dad around, it still is fun to celebrate the holidays with family in Las Vegas. These are a few of my favorite pictures from Christmas 2009.

Welding at Kishwaukee College

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

While I was doing my Marketing Internship at Kishwaukee College I was able to photograph different aspect of the college. One of my favorite sessions was when I captured images from the welding class. It was fun to watch the students mark sparks and weld metal together. Here are a few of my favorite! They can also be seen on the Kishwaukee College website.

Kohler, WI

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

When it comes to remodeling bathrooms, the only place to go (besides Home Depot) is the Kohler Museum. What a hoot! Who would of thought, that toilets and faucets can take up a whole day of ‘oooohing’ and ‘awwwing’. I even included some self portraits with my wonderful travel buddy…. my awesome hubby Steve~

Galena, Illinois

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

My husband and I try and travel a few times a year. A few years ago we spent a week in Galena, IL. It is a beautiful town to explore. From Grant’s Home to local wineries, we had a blast! (On a side note, we went for a week….. it really is a weekend trip! Just so you know).

The Kishwaukee River

Occasionally, when it rains…. a lot, the Kishwaukee River floods. On a side note, the river also flows north.

3 If by Air

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

One of the things that I have appreciated about being a photographer is sometimes getting the ‘not so common to what I normally do’ requests. When I photographed 3 If by Air it was a lot of fun! I listened to their music as I worked my photography magic. Two of my passions in one session, music and creating art!

Downtown Dekalb

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

I was contacted by Morning Star Media in Sycamore who publish a magazine for a local community bank. Resource Bank has a monthly magazine that they send out to all their clients. In the magazine they have articles about local events, businesses and artists. I had the opportunity to go around down town Dekalb and captures these images for the them.

Kishwaukee College

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

Back in August, I was doing a marketing internship at Kishwaukee College (on a side note, I graduated with my Associates in December 2009!). I was able to help with marketing brochures by taking pictures of various classes and events that were happening around campus! On a beautiful August day, I was able to capture the beauty of the campus!!

Chicago Marathon 2009

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

I recently moved to Chicago from Sycamore Il, and the first major event that I watched was the Chicago Marathon. It was an amazing feeling standing on the side lines being able to cheer on the runners and applaud their determination. I was standing at the 5 mile mark and they still had 21 miles to go. Some of the images I printed out for myself so I can reflect….. I don’t think I can ever say “I can’t do that” again. If I work hard at something…. I can achieve anything!
