I get it. You were skimming through Pinterest and saw the most darling little photo shoot that had balloons, chalkboards, cake, life sized letters, colorful banners…the works. I actually love that stuff too, I think all of those things are adorable and make for great decor at birthday parties, bridal showers and baby showers. However, when […]

I just adore this family! They were among those Chicago families that I practiced on when I bought my first camera, and have remained faithful to me as my business has grown! Every year they reach out to get updated portraits done for the twins’ birthday. Kids are definitely in the business of growing, and before […]

It’s almost spring, y’all. Except it isn’t (at least in the Midwest). It’s still very much winter up here, certainly no signs of spring yet (except if you walk into Old Navy). When I get the feeling that winter may never end, I need a little taste of summer. Pretty much, I need to remember […]

If you know Beth & Jim, you already know by now that she has announced a baby is on the way (so I’m not spoiling any surprise!) If you don’t know them, scroll through anyway because the way she decided to tell her husband was the cutest and hopefully it will inspire others for future photo […]

I don’t know about you guys, but January is my all time least favorite month. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always gotten the winter blues right after Christmas is over. I can’t understand how the world can be SO merry and then all of the sudden in a matter of days, the whole […]

I still can’t believe that 2016 has come and gone. It seems like every year I get older, time slips by faster. Anyone else?! 2016 was particularly special because last spring after WPPI, I decided to start my photography business. That conference was the final boost I needed to make it happen. I quit being afraid […]

You guys probably know by now that fall is my absolute favorite season. I’m not alone here. I think autumn holds a special place in many-a-heart, because it’s sort of the unofficial “new year” where everyone can start fresh, and the crisp fall air is that reminder to us. It has also quickly become my […]

Oh you guys, all the stars aligned with this one. Perfect weather, amazing venue and a couple that loves each other madly and deeply. It’s like all I did was press the shutter button. I also may have picked several grasshoppers out of Liz’s dress, but these are common problems in cornfields I’m learning. Liz […]

The last time I photographed Daira and Brody, they were brand new parents…fast forward 2 years later and they’ve got another beautiful gal in the mix! I love when a client reaches back out and I find that their family has grown. Life is always changing and evolving and it should be documented properly! Daira […]

This little newborn was such an answer to prayer. I think sometimes when everyone we know is having babies or has lots of children already, we forget what miracles they are. So many factors have to fall perfectly into place for one little soul to be formed in a mama’s tummy…”for you created my inmost […]
