I bought a Native American headdress once.

I bought a Native American headdress once. I was dying to do a photo shoot with it and thankfully I have some really great friends that made this fun shoot happen. No really, it was a blast. We drove around and found a field full of daisies during the golden hour. We, well Pat, lied to a guy that stopped to check out what we were doing. Told him Sam was a famous model and we were a photography group from Chicago photographing the locals, he was intrigued so it was a win. Brought out smoke bombs and sparklers and trekked down to a water location, shout out to Sam who did it in heels. When it got dark we decided to stop in the middle of a back road and do some cool things with the most magical evening sky. Pat also did the most flawless toe touch we have ever seen, but that’s for another blog post!

Check out the photos below!

Mel: Maternity and family… Holy geez the beauty.

Mel and I went to high school together and I’ve seen her family grow through social media and reading her blog posts. She has two stunning young boys and a third on the way! Mel asked me to do a 48 hour session when baby Emmett arrived and I could not have been happier. I love babies and all their squish, big brother moments and beautiful tinder family moments as their lives change in a blink of an eye. I approached Mel about doing a maternity session, mostly because she is a beautiful individual, but I also love maternity sessions and don’t schedule enough of them. As planning went along I decided why shouldn’t we bring the whole family along? It’d give the boys a chance to meet me and get used to me for the day Emmett made his appearance. I also brought a few water guns, for smiling purposes of course! See the beauty of what is Mel’s family below!

Morgan Family

I’ve known Cait for a few years now and actually had the privilege of having her take a few pics, our only professional pics (caitmorganphotography.com), of Neil and I semi recently. She has completely become one of my favorites in life and her family is seriously one of the raddest around! The first time I did photos of their family, little Etta was still cooking and June stole the show with her crazy/awesome hair and smile. I envy her baby names and her skills for sending the best gifs in text messages. Their family is beautiful, take a look!

Jocelyn + Josiah: Engaged

With every engagement session I come into it with the same goal, capture their love. Sometimes it is truly magical. Meet Jocelyn and Josiah. Every ounce of feels came out of them during their session and I couldn’t get enough. I’m almost positive I’m going to hire them to play their music at all of my upcoming engagement sessions, because when they played during their session it gave me goose bumps as I witnessed all of the emotions that oozed off of the two of them for one another. It was literally like all good things in the world collided as he played guitar and she, her ukulele with the sun setting in the background. We went well into the golden hour and almost chased the stars during their session, because how do you really stop such a good thing?
