LJ Studios began in 2004.  For the first two years I worked solely as a wedding photographer then soon expanded my business into all areas of photography including portrait and commercial. Professional experience prior to 2004 includes work with national portrait studios in the northern and central Illinois territories as well as a Bachelors degree with focus in photography and painting.


My personal style is a mixture of grounded seemingly un-posed shots, with loose active moments.  I do my best to pay attention to all angles and background information that would enhance a photo as well as allowing the subject to act natural so that I might capture something valuably unexpected.
