Kate and Stephen both got there PhDs in engineering from Northwestern University in Evanston. It’s also where they got engaged! So, when it came time to figure out where we should shoot their engagement session, it was a pretty easy decision. Northwestern’s beautiful campus is proving to be a popular photo spot this year!

Our first couple attempts at a photo shoot got rained out. However, this past weekend, the weather cleared, and–even though it was still a little chilly–we decided to go through with the session! I’m glad we did. The hazy cloud coverage made for great light, and the campus was in full spring bloom. It was gorgeous!

Here are some sneak peeks from our time together.

I love the bright red jacket, bright blue dress, and bright green trees!

Couldn’t decide which of these I loved more. So… Also, the next few photos are SOOC (straight out of the camera). No editing at all–that’s how good the light was!

Sorry, you two. I had to post this one! Always the perfect gentleman, Stephen helped Kate touch up her lip gloss between photos!

Of course, I love to catch couples giggling, snuggling, and stealing little moments with each other. Sometimes, it can be difficult to coax that out of people in front of the camera. However, these two were so naturally sweet and affection–makes my job easy!

As they were walking to the spot where Stephen would propose, they passed this rock. Minutes later, Stephen popped the question himself!

Yesterday, I met Whitney and Jay at their alma mater, Northwestern University. It’s my first engagement session of the year, as Chicago is just starting to thaw. Wedding season is right around the corner, though, and this blog will be getting some much-needed lovin’.

It was great to kick off my season at the place where Whitney and Jay first met and fell in love as college freshman. Jay, especially, was so excited to take photos at places he remembers them frequenting, and you could tell there was a fair amount of nostalgia brewing.

Though it was still a bit windy and chilly, we managed to get to campus in time for some beautiful evening light. Here are some sneak peeks of our time together!

Jay proposed to Whitney at the building in the background.

College campuses can provide some great architectural spots to shoot in, and Northwestern is among the best of them! Perfect backdrop for all this fierceness.

Whitneyblog5

This was a spot that Jay was REALLY excited about!

Whitneyblog7

The campus library is particularly beautiful!

A few weeks ago, I met a handful of lovely ladies at the Trump for a boudoir marathon. I guess you could say this was my coming-out-of-boudoir-retirement shoot, as I stopped doing boudoir marathons a couple of years ago.

However, with some mild arm twisting, I was convinced to do a shoot just in time for Valentine’s Day.

I always forget how fun it is to play dress up, feel sexy, drink champagne, and gossip with a bunch of ladies. Let’s be honest: we pretend that these shoots are for our significant others, but they are really for us, too! And that’s exactly how it should be.

Here are some smokin’ hot sneak peeks from some very brave and beautiful ladies. Whether you like to be sporty or sultry, the girl next door or a total vixen, I hope we all take some time out to feel this good about ourselves!
