I’ve thought it was Friday for the past 3 days, but I think now I can say accurately HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!! Working on finish up editing this wedding. Can’t wait to get the images into the hands of this stunner of a couple 🙌🏼
When we got our @shawsofdarwenuk sink I had dreams of giving my baby a bath in it. Truth be told, now that I’ve seen how much this babe loves to splash I’m thinking it would probably be a horrrrrible idea - but gosh darn it I wanted that photo. So baby in a sink, sans water... with a rubber ducky, just for the effect.
Years ago I shot an engagement session for a couple who was in Chicago from out of town. They wanted that Pinterest perfect silhouette sunset photo - and I had to remind them that the sun sets in the west and we were on the wrong side of the lake for that 🙈 we laughed about the mistake and then I explained that we get something even better. We get the glow. 💕
Oh how I love this proud papa moment 😭 I’m so many favorites while working on this wedding! Such a perfect day.
And oldie but a goodie. Best fall colors at an engagement session EVER. Iowa is beautiful - don’t let anyone ever tell you that it’s just flat cornfields. 🍂🍁🌾
I’m not crying, your crying. 😭💕 putting together a blog post from this perfect day! Stay tuned
Not a motivational poster (though i feel like I could drop a quote into this frame and see it hanging in the office of a high school guidance counselor). This is a mountain range in Patagonia (Fitz Roy, in El Chaltén - Argentina). Sometimes when I see photos from this trip I get sad, thinking it’s likely we will never see this place in person again... but I also stop and think about how amazing it is that we actually did it. If you have the opportunity to see this place in real life - do it. don’t think twice.
Wake up. Feed baby. Change diaper. Make coffee. Light fall scented candle. That is how my mornings have been going so far and I’m not mad about it. Favorite fall scented candles (so far) are this “spiced cider” from @capribluecandles (purchased at @anthropologie last year), @glade “cozy autumn”, @traderjoes “honey crisp apple” AND “pumpkin vanilla” both are fantastic and they are only $4 🙌🏼 Anyone have any other favorites???? 🍂🌾🍁
This is a face that says “the only reason my house is clean is because i didn’t want the babysitter to see how we actually live” 😬 — we had a non family member / non friend babysitter for the first time last night (we used an app to find her, which officially makes me a millennial, right?), and it went PERFECTLY... I mean he was asleep before i left and stayed asleep the whole four hours. BUT STILL. 🙌🏼
Gorgeous couple, gorgeous skyline. Working on finishing up this @bridgeportartcenter wedding - can’t wait to share more 💕
Family sessions are absolutely my new favorite thing. So looking forward to doing more of them this year and next!! Xo #chicagofamilyphotographer #chicagofamilies #letthembelittle #letthekids #twoundertwo #familyphotos #fallfamilysessions
They’re married!!! Congrats, Stephanie and Joel!!! For a million reasons, it was a wedding day that I’ll never forget. Also, Stephanie, I’m laughing now that 4 days ago we were discussing our rain plan 😂 it ended up being the most perfect weather day of the whole year ☺️ chicago showed off, for sure.
