2019 Tree Farm Minis were by far my favorite so far. I always love getting to see new and returning families this time of the year as they prep for the Holiday Season. This year, I had such a great turnout and 3 amazing days to work with. Thank you to Cupola House for always […]

Tree Farm Mini Sessions at Cupola House Tree Farm in Bourbonnais, IL

Friends, in the city, on the lake, celebrating life, having fun. My kind of session right there. I had so much fun with Ryan and Sam as we explored the city a bit for their anniversary session. They have been married for 5 years and have two angel babies, but this time it was just […]

Anniversary Session at Montrose Harbor in Chicago, IL. Krystal Richmond Photography

If I told you how much I loved shooting this summer family session, It’d be an understatement. Rachel is my girl, my fellow baseball/photog mom that I love chatting about life with. Being able to document her family in this season makes me feel so good. I mean just look at these kids and how […]

Summer Family Session in Kankakee, IL | The Langlois Family

I’ll start by saying that I don’t photograph a lot of newborns anymore. My business has evolved and it’s just not my main focus. However, when a friend or someone I know has a cute little babes, there’s no way I’m turning down that lifestyle session! I met Val when we worked together a couple […]

Chicago Lifestyle Newborn Session | Baby Leah

If you’ve never been to the Bird Haven Greenhouse in Joliet, IL … GO! It’s so cute. Nothing big and crazy but it’s such a cute little spot to visit and one of my new favorites to take photos at. If you’re not familiar with these faces yet, they come to see me yearly and […]

Greenhouse Summer Family Session in Joliet, IL | The Kjell Family

You might remember this stunning couple from their wedding that I shared with you back in September of last year. From the moment I met Ryan + Allie at their wedding consultation, I knew they would become more than just clients. So when Allie text me to tell me they were expecting and asked me […]

Plainfield, IL Family Photographer | Ryan + Allie’s Pregnancy Announcement

Only in the Chicagoland I swear, do we start out with a stormy overcast at the beginning of the session and end it with bright, glowy sun! This spring weather in the Midwest has been quite a challenge, but luckily I have some great clients and were pushing through with some of the best sessions! […]

Cutest Family of Three + Pup | Smith Family | Chicagoland Family Photographer

Whenever I get to photograph a special time in someones life, it’s always a blessing. But when those people happen to be your friends, really really good friends, it takes on a whole new meaning. It already was such an amazing experience to photograph Bri and Mikes Wedding in 2017, but now I got to […]

Flipping A House Into A Home | The Growing Gowler Family | Kankakee, IL

Earthy tones on a cloudy Spring night may be one of my favorite settings to shoot! Granted I’m a sunset lover through and through, but you photographers know, there’s something magical about the perfect overcast night. So clients, when you check the forecast a million times to make sure you have the perfect setting, don’t […]

Ehmen Family | Chicagoland Family Photographer | Earthy Tone Spring Session

Chicago! I mean seriously, how can you beat these views? When Peggy and I were discussing locations for their family maternity session, I brought up the idea of heading downtown to Chicago and shooting at North Avenue Beach. If you know Chicago, you know that a March evening can be very unpredictable, especially on the […]
