I’ve been photographing Summer and Eric since I shot their wedding back in 2010. They are always one of my favorite couples. They aren’t only¬† silly and kind and humble, but they also have unbelievable style, and that always comes across in their sessions. (I mean, check out this fall session from a few years ago.)

So, when I found out they were expecting their first babe, not only was I absolutely thrilled for them, personally, but I was also totally stoked for what I knew would be a maternity session for the record books. And, as soon as Summer and I started exchanging game-planning emails–mentioning “Outlander” as inspiration–I knew they were going to rock yet another photoshoot.

Still, as they always do, they surprised me, because they showed up WITH A SWORD. A sword, people! Of course, they have a sword. Cause they take actual sword-fighting classes, a la Arya Stark.

I’m giddy over how fun this shoot was, and I am so happy to be sharing these sneak peeks with you. But I’m even more excited for this little baby who is being born into one of the smartest, most creative, admittedly geeky, and completely down-to-earth families I know!

I shot Jess and Rob’s glamorous wedding at the Rookery a couple of years ago. So, I was super excited to see this duo-turned-trio again in Lincoln Park, recently, for a fall family session.

Their little guy, Marty, is just 9 months old, and he is such a little cutie! I had to work hard to get a smile out of the little guy, but–by the end of the shoot–I was successful!

Here are some sneak peeks from this adorable family.

Caitlin is best friends with Summer, who I’ve photographed quite a few times. (I’m photographing her maternity session, later this year!) Summer’s wedding, even though it was several years ago, is still one of my favorites. It was a semi-casual brunch affair, and I remember being there, thinking “this is the most I’ve ever seen people enjoy a wedding.” In fact, it was so awesome, that I stole her idea and was married in the same venue a couple of years later!

So, when Caitlin contacted me, saying she was having a low-key brunch wedding, I knew I was in for a treat! Caitlin is the anti-Bridezilla. She’s so impossibly laid-back about everything, and her and Jesse’s wedding, which was at Farmhouse in Evanston, really evoked that kind of relaxed atmosphere.

There wasn’t really any dancing or fuss or elaborate timeline or grand affair–but there were waffles! And mimosas and an open bar and plenty of fun to go around.

When it was time for the ceremony, everyone just walked up to the front; it was like a pop-up wedding in the midst of a really lively party.

Here are some photos from a wedding that centered around the important stuff: family, friends, love–and bloody marys!

I loved Caitlin’s dress, which had a total vintage vibe.
