Hello and welcome to my photography website! My name is Ariana and I currently reside in a suburb of Chicago.
I'm the mother of two little girls (almost 10 and 2 and a half)! My husband and I met fresh out of Highschool and are coming up on our 13 year anniversary!
Photography has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. From taking classes in Highschool to snapping pictures at family gatherings, I've enjoyed any opportunity to document moments and freeze them in time. Taking pictures brings me to my happy place and allows me to express my creativity and in return, my clients (or family and friends) get to make memories for a lifetime!
What started as people admiring my photographs and asking me to take family pictures and such, snowballed into more and more experiences in taking pictures in all kinds of settings, for not only family and friends, but also acquaintances. I've loved each experience and always look forward to getting new calls to expand my horizons! One day, a "Facebook friend" of mine said to me, " sometimes I just log on to Facebook so that I can see the new pictures you've posted that day. Your photographs bring such joy to my heart! You should really consider turning your passion into a business!" It was then that I realized I should start a business! I've always dabbled in a little bit of this and little bit of that and was never sure that I would find something I'd be happy with doing for the rest of my life. It was in the moment that I read her comment that I realized photography would be the one thing I will never get bored of. It's always been my constant!
So, here I am, with my newly budding business! I hope you enjoy my portfolio and give me a chance to create some lasting memories with you and your loved ones!
