About Me



I’m Carrie. A wife, mother, + creative soul. I was born + raised in Illinois and live in the far western suburbs of Chicago with my husband of almost 30 years and our 2 kids.

I love to shoot lifestyle + portrait photography and have been making friends and capturing their milestones for over 15 years. I am also a partner and photographer at Vintage Blu Weddings, which my friend Amber and I established in 2010. Recently I have dabbled in a few other types of photography. I have played with fashion, products + food. I am also crossing into the world of real estate. Which will definitely feed into my passion for home decor. My husband has no idea what he is in for!

Which brings me to what I do when I am not working…. I love to decorate my home. I am a chronic furniture re-arranger and refurber (is that a word?). I have a cozy, welcoming home. Or at least I think so. I want everyone who comes to my home to feel like they can cozy up and hang out over a cup of coffee. Which of course is another love of mine. I also love to spend time with my family, hanging outside with the pups or ponies, going kayaking, wandering in a bookstore, + enjoying some coffee on my front porch or snuggled on the couch with the pups and my ipad and drawing pencil.

I am a people person and would love to work with you and your photography needs.

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished.
That will be the beginning.
