It can’t get more autumn looking than these fall family photos at Crow Island Woods in Winnetka! It is one of the best places for portraits in Chicago’s North Shore, in my opinion. The colors on that early November afternoon were so brilliant! Not to mention, mom did an awesome job on outfit coordination. The […]

It was so refreshing to change it up a little bit for these family photos! In the fall, you can find me in a number of beautiful Chicago parks, but this family wanted a more urban look. You can only get your pictures taken in front of the skyline so many times, after all. I […]

What a beautiful story of God’s faithfulness this is! These two have been hoping and praying for a child for many years. Now, in God’s perfect timing, a little one is finally on the way. Their joy could not be adequately captured in these photos, and I am humbled that I was chosen to document […]

This is what I would call quintessential Chicago in the fall! Late October really delivered with it’s colors in Lincoln Park this year. What could be a more perfect setting for a family photo than some fall foliage and a Chicago skyline!? Before recently moving to Indy, this fam lived in Chicago for almost a […]

This family will forever be the most photogenic Chicago family of all time! This will be my fourth time photographing them (you might remember the first) and these may be my favorite images yet. We had the most spectacular fall evening at Winnemac Park in mid October for their photos. The kind of evening you […]

I’ve been photographing this family for several years now – from family photos, to newborn, to extended family sessions, and now maternity! This mama wasn’t sure if she was the “maternity session” type, but wanted to give it a go since this is their last little one. I understood her hesitation. For starters, even though […]

It was such a joy to work with this sweet Colorado family who are brand new to Chicago! Having only been here a few months, I think they were pleasantly surprised that you can find nature right in the middle of the city, which, let’s be honest, is sort of surprising. Montrose is a pretty […]

I’ve been photographing these brothers for four years now, and I can’t believe what a difference that short amount of time makes. For an adult, four years is nothing really…you look the same, feel the same, maybe have a couple of extra lines around your face. Think about it, our littlest guy here was an infant, […]

I was so excited when Bethany Napoleon of Handlettered Studio contacted me for her maternity pictures! It is so flattering when other local creative entrepreneurs reach out. We couldn’t have asked for more stunning natural light on this early March afternoon! It was super chilly (in the 30’s), so Bethany was seriously a rock star putting […]

Once in a while you’ll get a family who can become their true selves in front of you. This, friends, makes for some awesome memories. If you can show up and put aside whatever mess is going on in your life, whatever tantrum your toddler(s) had while you were dressing and getting them in and […]
