Hey! I'm Sonce (pronounced Son-see)!


I'm a superhero. It's true. My power? I freeze time. I take a moment, capture it, and preserve it for a lifetime. My promise to you is this: to make the best portraits of you that you've ever seen. 


A native Chicagoan, I'm a wife and homeschooling mother that fell in love with photography as a youngster. I would pour over magazines and study the images, but I didn't know it could be a career. 

When my children were little, I realized how important it was to document, well, us! Us as a family. The children individually. Friends. Changes. Travel. I wanted images of it all. I don't have a lot of pictures of me as a child, or even of my parents or grandparents. I knew that time is fleeting, and I wanted to capture it!

Turning my love and hobby of photography into a business has been an adventure! I have exhibited internationally and am a member of the Reial Cercle Artistic de BarcelonaProfessional Photographers of America, and PPANI

I photograph a limited amount of weddings annually so I can give my clients the custom experience for which they are looking. I want to be the photographer that grows with you, watching you return year after year.

In addition to loving my family, I thrive on travel and meeting new people. Let's get together over a great cuppa and plan a session worthy of documentation!

I love social media! You can like me on Facebook, follow me Instagram.

Lots of love,


Portrait Sessions begin at $650.
