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.

Gahhhhh this couple might be the BEST couple I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. So much laughter. So much joy. So much awesomeness. Thanks, S family for inviting me to your new home to capture this HUGE milestone in your lives!! Congratulations on your new home – its BEAUUUUUUUUUTIFUL. Good luck with all the unpacking, it’ll feel more and more like home every second!!

I love love love when clients give me free reign to PLAY. And that is just what this session is 100% about. They are all at an age where they find me funny (yay) and love to play tricks and joke right back WITH me. So so so in love with this family and the magic in their eyes when they start to play and seek. Sneakity sneak:

You know those moments that you wish you could just live in forever? Those moments you wish you could freeze, stop time and savor… that’s what homestyle sessions are all about. I spent the morning with the D family capturing them as they are. Laughing, loving and playing with one another. D family — your kids are gorgeous, sweet and hands down you all are one of my favorite families to photograph. Thanks for having me in your home and sharing these special moments with me. <3  Ps. I want your house!! Loved it!!!

Annika is ONE!!! I first met this family last December on a frigid (but GORGEOUS day)… and this little darling rocked that shoot then too. We had the most gorgeous, perfect summer night along Lake Michigan (you know, the kind of night that reminds us why we love Chicago so darn much). Absolute perfection. Sneak a peek at this little muchkin, who is SOOOO close to walking it’s not even funny!! Happy Birthday, Annika! 🙂 <3

This beautiful mama and I grew up playing volleyball together… so it’s super cool to get to continue to see her family grow and change. Little man Declan is about to become a big brother to a little baby girl (Due in September). And man oh man, is he gonna be a good one! He is a bundle of joy, curiosity and giggles. I adooooooore everything about this mini session. Another sneak peek below:

And just like that… they were a family of FIVE!!! I met this family when big sis was just TWO years old and mama had Bud Bud in her belly – its such a treat for me to reunite with families and see how they’ve grown and changed. I spent a sunny Sunday with the wonderful C family and captured their newest addition! Sebastian was born just FIVE days ago and rocked the heck outta this session. Sneak a peeek at some of my favorite moments below:

Always soooooooo great to see these familiar faces appear on the blog!!! Little Miss Teagan is already TWO years old?! Whaaaaaaa? We met on a chilly summer night (this summer has been crazy weird, riiiight?) But it ended up being a perfect night to capture the happiness that this family has for one another. Congratulations on the new home, M family – its STUNNING!!!!!
