Hi I’m RoGina (pronounced Rah-Geena) and I live in Chicago with my husband and two boys.

I am a published photographer specializing in lifestyle portraits and events. I love capturing real moments and highlighting what makes you unique.

I’m hugely passionate about perserving memories to leave a legacy. A living legacy is a way to capture life stories, lessons, sentiments, memories and traditions. Through photography, I devote myself to helping families preserve their generational narratives.

My blog consists of children and family portrait sessions, events, personal projects and as well as tips on how to document your living legacies. 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!

My life story in images.

Random Facts

I was a Disney Cast Member. (Thinking about this, watching children laugh and smile has always brought me joy and carries over into my photography.)

I am a vegetarian on days that don’t involve bacon.

I love to give compliments to strangers.

I am a fan of all things creative and a lifetime learner.

Journaling, documenting, knitting, videography, clean eating, minimalism, yoga and photography are just of a few of the things that I've tried over the years.

If I wasn’t a photographer, I would love to be the Head Librarian at the Library of Congress
