Hello, there! Thanks for joining me on my blog, where you’ll get a peek at everything from my lovely brides and brides-to-be to fun with families, branding, personal life and travels. Stay a while and say hello!
“A Celebration of Motherhood” There are so many mom-centric moments in our lives – I’m very lucky to be part of so many of the happy ones, including my own! Other than a few selfies, I don’t have photos that I’ve taken with me and my Mom together. But, this series of me and each of my […]
This is Lakeview! ***Update: It’s April 2020, and our Governor here in Illinois just extended our shelter-in-place existence through May. Heritage has recently launched their Heritage Initiative to support essential workers. Buy them a cup or box of coffee, donuts or even creamer! Spread the word.*** I am so excited to announce the launch of […]
“All in the Family…” When I first met Diana, she was working on opening up her own State Farm Insurance office. She was also pregnant. I was amazed at her drive and energy, it was contagious! And I first got the opportunity to photograph her and Francisco for their parents-to-be photos. Then, she needed headshots. […]
“Memorial Day Wedding” It was the most lovely August day for Nicole and David’s Chicago Memorial Day wedding weekend! Much warmer than anyone anticipated, but that didn’t stop them from the fun, celebrating their big day with family and friends. Starting the night before with the rehearsal, the celebration traversed the city, from Chicago’s Rogers […]
“Sláinte!” I love Spring weddings, especially in Chicago! With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, Heather and John’s Irish-themed wedding is a perfect way to usher in the season.
“Beautiful Bump!” Like engagement sessions, there’s something so special and sweet about Chicago maternity photoshoots. It’s time that parents-to-be rarely give themselves – the enjoyment and just being present in the moment before the new one arrives without the distractions of doctor appointments, baby room preparations and all the activity that comes from being pregnant. […]
Millennium Park It was a crisp, unseasonably warm day when I met Anna + Eric for their Chicago engagement session in Millennium Park. The Fall colors were gorgeous, and they were so sweet together!
“Bee-utiful Food Photography!” I love photography, I’m very lucky to love what I do for a living. And, if you know me personally or follow my personal life on social media, you know I also love food! I love everything about it: cooking, eating out, trying new things…and I especially like food photography. There’s something […]
“I scream, you scream, we all scream for…Lakeview frozen treats!” July is National Ice Cream Month, so for this month’s Living that Lakeview Life feature, Lynzie Wellin and I chose two of our favorite Lakeview spots to cool off during the hot summer months! One’s been a neighborhood staple for well over a decade, the […]
“Buon Apetito!” I was very excited to be invited to photograph a styled photoshoot with some of my favorite Chicago wedding and event vendors, Amazing Edibles, Tablescapes Event Rental and The Flower Firm. Andrea Herrera, owner of Amazing Edibles, used the words “abundant” and “summer” to describe her vision for her Tuscan-themed shoot. She had […]
