Mother's Day Portrait Sessions


Hannah and her parents explore Millenium Park

Chicago Candid Family Photography Session with the Linds

I’ve feel lucky to have photographed Hannah four times over the last three years–the first when she was just a few days old in St. Louis for her newborn session, then again during a trip to Chicago, and now recently at Millenn











ium Park.  I can’t believe how big she is now!  When I first met her, she was only five pounds!  She’s grown into the sweetest, most charming little girl.  I loved every minute snapped pictures of her as she twirled through Millennium Park with her parents, John and Claudia in toe.

Kerry and Dan Married // Elawa Farm Wedding Photos

Elawa Farm Wedding Photos

On a perfect day in Lake Forest, at the same church Kerry was baptized, she and Dan said “I do” before their dearest friends and family.

Following the ceremony, the couple celebrated at Elawa Farm, a place chosen because it reminded them of Northern Michigan, where they first fell in love.

Congrats to Kerry and Dan!!  I’m so happy for you two! I can’t wait to see our family again for your sister Megan’s wedding!





























































A snowy proposal at Millennium Park

On a beautiful, snowy Sunday in downtown Chicago Mauricio knelt down on one knee to propose to his sweet girlfriend Katie. With a smile as wide as the sky overhead, Katie said yes! I felt so lucky to share in this moment, so beautiful and love filled. Chicago proposal photographyChicago proposal photographyChicago proposal photographyChicago proposal photographyChicago proposal photography

The Quinns 2014 holiday card photoshoot

It was such a blast hanging with the Quinns again for their 2014 family holiday card photography. I love these kids!! We had so much fun during their shoot– playing games, jumping (sometimes on each other), telling stories, and even dipping our feet in the water! With three kids all walking age, their parents and I decided a classic posed portrait was not in the cards.  Instead we encouraged Tom, Connor, and Grace to do what they do best and I focused on capturing these candid moments!

Laura and Earl’s at Seven Bridges Golf Club

Laura and Earl were married in a small intimate ceremony on the beach in California and celebrated their nuptials with a reception at Seven Bridges Golf Club in Woodridge, IL.   The couple LOVE to laugh and have fun, which can be seen in these pictures.  They’re joyous spirits are contagious!  It was such a pleasure to be their photographer! Big thanks to Braxton Black, my second photographer who captured many great moments during the day!


A beautiful engagement session at the Skokie Lagoon

Dominika and Matt’s engagement session was took place at the magical Skokie Lagoons. In the golden afternoon light, we started off using Matt’s Cobra for our first location. What a beaut! It was so fun to incorporate the car into their session, they looked phenomenal with it! From there, we walked into the woods. The sunlight caste warmth across the tall prairie grass. At the top of the knoll, they unpacked a picnic and cheers over a glass of wine. It was a stunning evening!  I’m so looking forward to their nuptials next May!   




The Schuster Family Photo Session

I’ve heard it said that being around children is like a dose of therapy. In a single smile or a string of laughter, suddenly they  can make us feel five years younger and mentally ten pounds lighter. This recent family portrait session was just that for me!  I had a ball with the Schuster boys. I caught their smiles, leaving the shoot, not wanting it to be over yet. Chicago family portrait photography
