Hi I’m RoGina (pronounced Rah-Geena).

I am a published Lifestyle and Editorial photographer based in Chicago where I live with my husband and two boys.

What you will find here is a blend of my life: client sessions, personal projects, , mess, curiosity, textures, colors, adventures, and stories, that inspire me, and I hope they inspire you too.

You’ll find me daily on Instagram trying something new, practicing self portraits or drinking coffee in one of my favorite mugs. If you’d like to learn more, you can visit my blog or subscribe to my newsletter. If you’re interested in working with me, please send me a message so we can chat!

More about me….

  • I love books, bacon and my boys.

  • Disney World and the public library are the happiness places on Earth. In fact….

  • My dream job use to be to work for Disney (did that); now if I could be anything (other than a photographer), I would be the Head Librarian for the Library of Congress.

  • I have been a coffee drinker since I was about 5 years old (no, it didn’t stunt my growth).

  • I am a lifelong scholar and I dabble in a lot of things. Knitting, painting, yoga, gaming, photography, journaling, film and documenting are just a few of the many topics that have grabbed my attention over the years.

  • I love lists. You’ll find them a lot here.
