I am so happy you are here & Thanks for stopping by! Let's do this!

I was born in Chicago. I am the middle child of 3. I am very close to my siblings. I am a 90s kid, & a Virgo. I love learning and traveling to new places. I spent time in College studying abroad in Italy. Now I want to see as much of the world as I can.

 I strongly believe if you love what you do, you'll never spend a day working! I believe in the power of positivity. You decide how you see the world. Is the glass the half full or empty?

I have been doing photography since I was 16, learned on 35mm film developing in the darkroom. I did my first wedding for my sister in law's friend, they needed someone last minute & after that day I knew I found my place in the world! Wedding Photography was my calling! There is so something so special about freezing a moment in time into a forever memory. My approach to the day is less stress, only fun! Enjoy the day, It only happens once.  If you care more about having fun than being flawless, I am your Photographer!


I am dork, never graceful yet overly organized. HA!
No matter how hard I try to blend in , I stand out.
I LOVE coffee & wine. Never together.

I'm Nina.

Chicago proposal

Nina took beautiful pictures of my recent proposal! She was so helpful with suggestions and planning in the lead up to the proposal, then went ‘under-cover’ at the restaurant before I proposed. She captured some amazing shots both of the actual proposal and immediately following. The pictures were very organic and not editorial, and they came out amazing. I highly recommend Nina!

 I highly recommend Nina!
