personal brand photography for creatives, small businesses and influencers



What is personal brand photography?

It’s telling your brand’s story through incredible photos.

But that’s not all. 

We also create a CUSTOM experience to capture the heart of you and your brand.

what’s your story?


Hey, I’m Lisa

and I love telling stories!

I started my career as a writer in marketing communications and online content. And I loved being a writer, but after the economy turned it was hard for me to find as much work doing what I loved. So I took a class in photography, just to kill some time while I wasn't working. And I found a new passion! I've been telling stories for couples as a wedding photographer in Chicago and Milwaukee and I want to tell your story.

I love being able to build relationships with my clients, and getting to tell your stories...not only about your business, but everything that makes up your life: what you do in your free time, your hobbies, your family, everything that inspires you. That's what makes up your brand. 

I'd love to be part of telling your audience about YOUR story.

Let’s face it…

your social media habits are already costing you a lot.

⇨ you’re stressing out about what to post

⇨ spending your personal time taking photos

⇨ using photos that aren’t consistent and don’t fit your brand

⇨ wasting your time on inexperienced photographers that just don't “get” it

⇨ spending too much time away from your business and family trying to figure it all out

I work in the theater industry and...keep coming back to Lisa because she makes me feel so comfortable. Since I can just relax and be myself while she photographs, the pictures come out looking like,! She gives clear and gentle direction during the session, so you never have the thought "am I doing the right thing??"

Rare is the photographer who can capture an image that whispers 'you.' Everyone in their lifetime has had cookie cutter photos. Lisa's images not only look like you, but 'feel' like you. I love my images.
