Jessica and Joe are getting married in Lake Forest next June, but wanted to take some holiday photos at the Christkindle market – since it’s where they had their first date!
Lindsey and brian just bought their first home in chicago on friday. And then on saturday morning we had a photoshoot! They wanted to capture photos for their holiday card in their new neighborhood, Old Town! I had a great time with the two of them and wish them lots of fun adventures in their new part of town.
Brittany and kurt are 20 weeks pregnant. They contacted me to get some maternity/holiday photos. They also had an envelope with the gender of the baby inside and wanted to open it together during the shoot. HOW they were able to hold on to this little important envelope of information until then was beyond me! They even waited until the end of the shoot to do it! Oh the anticipation and will power these two have! They are keeping the gender of the baby a secret from friends and family though so you are just going to have to wait and see what that envelope told them!
I had a lovely day with meg and marty last saturday. I met meg at her parents house in morgan park, then we met marty at promontory point for a first look and some wedding photos. Meg really wanted a back yard wedding, but with 310 guests, that wasn’t possible, but she made the same kind of feel happen a few blocks away from her childhood home at Morgan Park Academy. Complete with outside ceremony, home cooked barbeque and dancing under the stars….oh, and lets not forget the taco food truck that showed up later in the night! Meg was a beautiful bride, and it was a real treat to be part of this special day!
This weekend I met Jenny and Jim with their baby zoe (seen here at 1 month old!), along with their cousins zack and sophia, at promontory point for photos. It was a gorgeous day, and zoe loved the camera! And lets not forget big sister Azzie and cousin Winky! What’s better than a newf at a photo shoot?! TWO!
Very excited to kick my 2014 wedding off with ellen and bryant’s special day at osteria via stato! The weather couldnt have been more perfect. And will you take a look at ellen’s dress?! She wore a vintage gown, and looked as if she walked out of an era. These two were in pure bliss all day – constantly smiling and holding hands. Such a treat to work with such a fantastic couple! Congratulations – here’s to many more!
Now that my wedding season has come to an end, I have a few more family shoots to share with you. First up: Jacob, Owen and Lucia! We took these photos at the Grove, in Glenview and then finished at their home, where it was a little bit warmer for baby Lucia. It was super fun to spend the morning with these guys – I’ve watched them grow and change and it was fun to be able to capture their little personalities through the lens!
mandy is one of my dearest friends – we’ve been friends for about 16 years now! I photographed her wedding a few years ago, so its such an honor to get to take photos of her little boy now too!
