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.
This was a spot that Jay was REALLY excited about!
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!
This past weekend, I did my first mini session marathon, photographing families in back-to-back 30-minute sessions. Throughout the week, I’ll be sharing photos from the marathon, and here is the first batch.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to photograph a baby and a toddler, but this little family was just so sweet and happy the entire time. Here are some sneak peeks, featuring the beautiful fall foliage at North Pond.
I’m doing another mini session marathon next weekend. If you’re interested in nabbing one of the remaining spots, just let me know!
