Like many of us, I had a dream to do what I love. In my case that was to become a professional photographer and a small business owner. In 2014 I took the leap and founded Magnolia Lane Media in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Fort Wayne presented one major obstacle to our business model. At that time, many realtors were taking their own photos and did not understand the value of using a professional photographer. Through hard work, dedication and persistence it did not take long for Magnolia Lane Media to become successful in Fort Wayne. Within a year we were proud to count more than 30 realtors as clients. Working hand in hand with these business partners we were able to accomplish some spectacular results. Realtors were realizing greatly increased traffic on listings by using our media. Our products were helping agents and FSBO listers distinguish themselves from the monotony of blasé photographs on listing sites.
2015 and 2016 brought plenty of excitement and change for our family. Shortly after the birth of our first child, my spouse was rewarded with consecutive promotions which ultimately landed us in the Chicago area. After much searching, we found and fell in love with Elmhurst and it’s vibrant community. Elmhurst is an idyllic place to raise a family and we look forward to many decades of love and growth here.
I am very excited to be open for business in the Elmhurst and Chicago markets. The opportunities to meet new clients, photograph fantastic listings, and grow my business are boundless. I look forward to making your acquaintance and helping you reach your sales goals.
