November 18, 2015   |   baby, children, family

Our son is now 3 months old, and he has already changed SO much. Watching him grow up so quickly has made me reflect on all of the wonderful families that I’ve photographed over the years. There are many families that I’ve had the pleasure of watching grow right in front of my camera.

So, as painful as it is to look back at some of my old photos (I mean, what was I thinking–vignettes?!), it is really fun to see how long I’ve been photographing some of these kids.

Here are some of my favorite then/now moments.

November 17, 2015   |   engagement, family


I had a great time shooting Jenn and Bryan’s wedding this past spring. When they wanted to do a fall session with their pup, Steve, I was super excited.

I’m an animal lover, too. So, I totally understand how pets are like family! It was great to meet Steve–and Jenn and Bryan, again–at Foster beach for what was probably the last 60-something degree day before winter arrived.

We had great weather, beautiful light, and a playful pup–what more could we want?! Here are some sneak peeks from our very lively shoot.

November 10, 2015   |   engagement


Claire and Max hired me to shoot their April wedding just a couple of weeks ago, and we got a move on scheduling their engagement session. Since winter in Chicago is so unpredictable, we wanted to capitalize on the unusually warm–and beautiful–fall that we’re having!

So, we met at the Alfred Caldwell lily pond in Lincoln Park. This is a spot where these two of spent lots of time, and it’s right next to North Pond, which is arguably the most gorgeous spot during fall in Chicago.

From the very first photo (which is the one above), I knew it was going to be an awesome shoot. Claire and Max are so effortlessly chic and comfortable in front of the camera. They made my job easy!

Here are some sneak peeks from our shoot together.





LOOOOOOVE these two!


We shot right before sunset, and I had fun playing with the gorgeous light!
