About Moonhouse

Thanks for visiting my website! I’ve been a full-time professional photographer since 2010. I have a background in illustration, painting, and dance, along with a deep interest in theatre, music, martial arts, and fashion.  I was awarded a full scholarship to attend Northern Illinois University, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Art. I feel all these elements influence my photography.

When composing an image, I like to keep things fun and natural. My photography “spidey senses” are always working to anticipate great photo ops. I’ll offer direction or staging when needed, but generally I play off of your energy. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV with a full range of lenses. When processing images, I make subtle adjustments for a clean and natural look.

Moonhouse serves Chicago & Milwaukee. I live in Milwaukee with my husband, son, and chihuahua. We love to eat and travel and love taking photos of what we eat and where we travel.

The name “Moonhouse” comes from a play on my maiden name, Villaluna.

Look forward to connecting with you!
