I’ve known the McDonald’s for over 10 years, they are always so gracious and a joy to be around. Earlier this summer, I went to their family home where I got to meet the newest addition of the family, baby Violet. She was just weeks old when these photos were taken. Have a look!
On a rainy Sunday in June, my husband and I drove to Schaumburg to do a family photoshoot with one of his oldest friends, Chris DeRoo. Brian has known Chris since they were maybe 5 years old? He's also known Chris's wife, Megan, since high school as Chris & Megan were high school sweethearts. They now have two beautiful boys and are in the process of relocating to St. Louis. Their youngest son, Henry, just turned one, so we added a cake smash to the session. Take a look!
These are outtakes from a pre-shoot photoshoot featuring me, my husband, my sister, Joanne the cat and my Grandparents farm. Taken in mid-December and edited with Phil Chester presets, these photos have a real aged, moody feel. Check them out.
This is the second year I've had the privilege to capture holiday photos of the Drake family. Conor, their oldest boy, chose to have the shoot at the Garfield Park Conservatory. Take a look at our afternoon in this stunning Chicago greenhouse.
My friends had a baby! His name is Benjamin Craig and he's perfect. He was given the name Craig to honor his Grandfather. Check out these moments I captured with Chris, Kristin and baby Benjamin.
