Lauren and Joel | Downtown Chicago Engagement Session, Wrigley Building and North Ave Beach

What happens when to Buckeyes meet in Chicago?? THIS! Lauren and Joel met through a mutual friend. Their friend decided that Lauren had to meet Joel, not only because they were both from Ohio, but because she just knew their personalities would compliment each other well. And was she right! The two met and it was almost instant. They knew they liked each other from the start and their relationship grew strong quickly. They always say, when you know, you know and it was no different for these two.

Lauren contacted me to photograph their Garfield Park Conservatory wedding, we chatted and just clicked. And just over a week later, I went to Chicago to photograph their engagement session! And I am so excited to be working with Lauren and Joel on their wedding day. It is going to be SO much fun. And since they nailed the engagement session - I just CAN’T WAIT for their wedding photos, it’s going to be a blast and Miles and I feel honored to be a part of their big day!

Chicago is always an amazing backdrop of photos, but this day was particularly perfect at The Wrigley Building and at North Avenue Beach. I couldn’t have asked for better lighting, a better couple and a better hour and a half. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do! Can’t wait for May!

Rachael and Dan | Awaiting Baby Grant

Since having a baby of my own, I have recently become SO interested in doing any type of portrait session involving babies. Maternity, newborn, hospital sessions, you name it! I love the little baby toes, their hair, their soft skin and I especially love all of their little noises. 

I was so happy when Rachael contacted me to do her maternity photos.  Rachael and Dan were one of our amazing wedding couples back in 2014 (what?!) and they'll be celebrating their 4th anniversary just before their due date! I was so glad I could capture such a special time in their lives.  There is noting more exciting than expecting a baby, especially your first little one.

I love what I do and I am so happy that I can create lasting memories for people that mean so much to me! Can't wait to meet baby Grant and touch those little baby toes!!
