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 […]

I really worked with some of the most amazing people in 2017. It was a task coming up with my favorites, so there are a lot, as a heads up. These photos are sweet, silly, intimate, emotional and overflowing with light and life. Every time I look at them I want to giggle, tear up, […]

The last time these two were in front of my camera was for their engagement photos three Septembers ago! Well, this September, we were joined by a baby bump. What an honor to see them go from giggly almost newly-weds to excited almost parents. They were just as sweet and genuine as they were a […]

I’ve been anxiously awaiting fall portrait sessions all summer! It’s my busiest time of year, but it’s worth it to meet so many new families and see my returning families with littles who have grown. I had a great fall kick-off with this sweet family of three! Although it was still early September, there was […]

You may remember this sweet little guy all the way back to his newborn session last summer – well, I’m so excited to say that his baby sister is on the way and we’ll be doing newborn session round 2 in October! Ashley hadn’t had “bump” portraits taken with her first pregnancy, so it was special […]

I think we must have rescheduled this family portrait session at least 7 times due to rain, but we finally made it happen and got ourselves the perfect afternoon in Lincoln Park during golden hour. I’ve known this family (minus their toddler) for 4.5 years now! Kate was the first friend I made in Chicago […]

This family portrait session in Lincoln Park was quintessential Chicago! These three were visiting Chicago for the July 4th holiday weekend, and just couldn’t leave without getting some classic portraits under the Honeycomb and along the Lincoln Park Boardwalk for some skyline views. While it was a really busy day in Lincoln Park, that didn’t […]
