I’m a Wisconsin native, which means I have first-hand experience with hot, humid summers and extremely long winters. But that’s not what I remember most from my childhood spent in WI. I remember building forts by the creek and pretending I was an explorer on the farm where I grew up, summers on the lake in the North woods and sledding on snow days (so many snow days). I also remember my grandmother’s home – filled with love. I’d spend hours looking through the family albums that her mother had so meticulously labeled and put together by hand and I remember the hand painted portrait that my grandmother had hanging on her staircase – showcasing her three children. I thought it was the most beautiful photograph I’d ever seen.
I've always wanted to be an artist, to create something for people that would be as meaningful as that hand painted portrait hanging in my grandma’s house. I feel lucky that I get to do something that I love! Lily Red Studio was founded in July of 2009 in Chicago, Illinois. After spending five years concentrating on photography for weddings, my little family moved to Denver, Colorado where I now work exclusively with children and families.
I invite you to set up a time to stop by my studio for a portrait consultation. Let me show you how I can help you create your own treasured family heirlooms. Remember, the most meaningful artwork that you will ever own will always be of those you love.
I support marriage equality and am accepting and inclusive of every type of family.
