Annnnnnnnnd my 2016 season is officially over. That totally FLEW BYYYYYY.

As always, I wanna give  THANK YOU to each and every one of my families! It blows my mind that you allow me into your homes, your lives and you grant me the HONOR of capturing these precious moments in your lives. I am soooooo lucky to have such wonderful and incredibly AWESOME families. I photographed 94 families, 12 newborns, 167 children and traveled 3600 miles around the Chicagoland (and Arizona) area. <3 To those that have either used me as a photographer, recommended me to your families/friends or in general supported me on this crazy journey of mine… THANK YOUUUU.It’s been a great year. I could not ask for better families to “work” with. XoXo.

I wish you all the best and only hope that 2017 brings you nothing but absolute goodness.

Hollllllllly cow — what a year 2014 has been.

First and foremost, from the absolute bottom of my SOUL – I wanna give a huuuuuuge THANK YOU to each and everyone of my families! You allow me into your homes, your lives and you grant me the HONOR of capturing these precious moments in your lives. I am soooooo lucky to have such wonderful and incredibly KIND families. No, really – you guys are so flipping amazing, gorgeous and just exhibit true happiness. It’s a wonderful “job” to freeze these moments for you. Looking back on the year as whole not only makes feel sooooo happy… I feel FULL – I can’t even TELL YOU.  <3

As many of you know, this year started off  sorta rough for me – with my full achilles rupture. Aka – I completely ripped my achilles tendon in half… basically rendering my left foot completely useless. I couldn’t bear weight… I couldn’t even feel it. Unfortunately/fortunately, the tear was too high for surgical repair, so I was left with an even longer recovery on an injury that already had a long recovery.. ha! For most of the year, I was not feeling 100% myself.  Let’s be honest, for pretty much every single one of these shoots I was either newly inured, shooting with a leg cast, hopping along on crutches, crawling up/down stairs or better yet… working a pimp limp in my walking boot. (I think that was my best look… Ha!) 

But the GREAT news is… I got there. I am fully healed. I have 100% tendon regrowth (I think) and I finally feel like myself again. I am not only back to running (cautiously), but also healed, happy and healthy — I cannot ask for more than that. So when I look back on every single shoot from 2014 (allllll 150 of them) – the memories of each shoot flood back. The laughter, the humor, the good times, the meltdowns (ha) and alllllll the gorgeous little smiles and giggles. You guys made my recovery that much better. 

Gaaaaaah, I love this “job” and I love you guys. I wish you all the absolute best and only hope that next year brings you nothing but goodness.

Annnnnnnd with that, my 2014 season is officially wrapped! This has been a year of change for me: personally, professionally and emotionally. So thank you for joining me on this crazy, awesome ride. Up next: I am taking a verrrrrry long and verrrrrrrry welcome 6 week sabbatical from not only photography, but from my full-time job. I’ll resume booking shoots in the new year sometime around February 15. Hope to see your smiling faces!!! xoxo.

Happiest of holidays to you and yours,

  Whoooa, what a ride 2013 just was! I mean… seriouuuuusly where did this year go???? Here I am wrapping up my last few shoots this weekend (5 to go) and I just had to take a walk down memory lane. So I pulled ONE photo from ALL 167 of my photoshoots this year (yup ONE HUNDRED SIXTY SEVEN).  Blows.my.mind. I met 18 newborns, 213 children and traveled 6,000 miles around Chicago to make each one of these sessions happen. I quacked, whistled, danced (not welllll… but hey!) and sung through these shoots… and 110% had a BLAST along the way. 

From the absolute bottom of my heart, thank YOU for allowing me into your lives once again. There is nothing I love more than capturing these special moments for you, one click at a time. As we go into the holiday season, please remember to take a second and just enjoy the moment…We never know what is in store for us and we will never get these days back. Treasure them. <3

Have a WONDERFUL holiday season,
Xoxo, Jordann
