These two sweet humans are members at my gym, Surge to New Levels in Carol Stream, and I patiently waited for Vinny to pop the question (he showed me the ring at the gym the week before he proposed) because I knew Julianna would be reaching out for photos immediately. With a long engagement planned so Julianna can finish school, they booked a Valentine’s mini session with me last month to document these moments of being newly engaged while still planning to do a full session once they begin wedding planning. Absolutely adore how these photos turned out and I am very much looking forward to continue working with these guys.

BEHIND THE LENS

hi, i'm ARIELLE.

You can usually find me home with my golden retriever or day dreaming of my next trip to Italy.

I am a firm believer in living life with purpose and never missing the opportunity to experience something new. The Meyers-Briggs test says I am an ESFJ, and my friends say I am the person they come to when they need comfort, advice, or fresh baked goods. I consider myself an empath, so special moments you share with your loved ones will likely get me all teary eyed and sentimental. I am not here to pretend life is picture perfect, but to capture genuine emotion and create timeless pieces of art to decorate your home. I’m constantly striving for perfection, but have a calming personality and am relatively easy going. 

When the camera is not around my neck, I am a big home body. I love hanging on the couch with my dog, making pasta, breads and desserts from scratch, squatting 400+ pounds in the gym, or plotting my next trip outside of the US. As a direct descendant of Italian immigrants, I feel most at home in Italy (and speak a bit of Italian, too.)
