I Believe...

  • Music is good for the soul

  • I believe in staying in the moment as much as possible. It's easy to disconnect behind the lens. I love being a part of the magic happening around me. 

  • Going barefoot when you can 

  • An all black wardrobe isn't a bad thing. I rather like not having to choose. 

  • Find what you love to do and then find a way to do it. (I don't mean to say you'll get paid or be rich doing it, but you'll be doing it.)

  • This world is made up of good beautiful people and we all could be just a little more kind to one another.

About Me

Hello, my name is Bonnie and I live in the beautiful state of Illinois. Aside from being a photographer I'm an avid traveler, yoga addict and an animal lover. I grew up in California, and moved to Lawrenceville, Illinois in 2009. I love it here! I'm married to the very smart, very cute, Peter and we have two daughters who love the outdoors and animals. Our other family members include a teacup chihuahua named Prada,  a landseer newfoundland named Magi and a coop full of lady chickens. My love for photography started when I was young and only grew as I got older. After high school, I attended Brooks Institute of Photography and worked in the field of fashion photography. While my expertise lies in fashion photography, I'm passionate about documenting moments in life where people (and/or animals) are the happiest.

 

Guilty Pleasures...

  • Cake! (Just don't put Jam in it and I'm happy)

  • A cup of tea and a sweater

  • Scuba diving (I love to see parts of the world few ever get to experience.) FYI Google Earth just doesn't compare.

  • I love any Latin dance and the music that goes with it. There might also be a time where I thought I was Latina. (And I might not be over it quite yet.) 

  • Animal Cuddles (for obvious reasons)

  • Night Time Bonfires (you smell all smokey but the cool breeze and the warmth of the fire is just awesome)

  • I sing out loud in the car...like really loud.
