Well, Stephanie stepped into my office(inside joke from high school). I have known this amazing lady since we were 16. You can guess my excitement when she asked me to snap photos for her 30th birthday. Of course I said yes and welcomed her to the 30 club.
I have had the pleasure of knowing this Taylor since she was a high school cheerleader while I coached. It is so great to have her come to me for her photography needs. Caleb had no choice to participate in his newborn session, but now it's either hit or miss.
I had the pleasure of photographing Alex and Christie for their anniversary trip from Florida to Chicago. The weather had been so amazing until they got into town, sunny and warm turned to rain and grey skies. Luckily we arrived on location early enough to experience light drizzles and no tourist. Pure luck!
Of course it has been raining off and on in Chicago for what feels like 3 months haha. The weather isn't stopping my clients though. My cousin Mike P wanted a super chill session for his website and we finally go to sync schedules and make it happen.
Thank you Chicago for giving us some really great weather days recently. The warm shift allowed me to photograph Holly and Luke in Lincoln Park without being stormed on. Of course Holly and I attended high school together, another "SSA Will Be Forever True" moment!
I was lucky enough to make some memorable connections in high school. It seems like every city I visit there is a woman that attended St. Scholastica Academy.
My 4th trip to Las Vegas sprung this photoshoot with my high school colleague Lacey and her beautiful children. I had never traveled outside of the strip so on the car ride to meet them I was blown away by the surrounding mountain view. Luckily for me we found a walking path near their home to capture these great moments and beautiful backdrop.
Love is in the air! I had the pleasure of photographing Trevor and Megan this past week in Chicago. If you have been in the Chicago area the past few months, the weather is very unordinary. We lucked up with a warm day of 50 degrees. Woot Woot! Usually on a good day, tourist traffic can be extremely high but not a ton of people were at Millennium Park. You can say we had a perfect session! It's so refreshing when you photograph a couple that are genuinely happy. You can tell by the love in their eyes and the huge smiles you see below.
The time has come for me to stop neglecting the blog. I am so excited to share photos from the Cooper family session. Liam brightens up any bad day you may have with eyes like that. He gained some fame on Instagram and got a great comment from the Gerber official account.
What an amazing topic to write about for my first post.
I remember being so excited last year when the Cubs made it to the NLCS. My sister Kaylyn, was the only other Cubs fan in our family and kept saying just be calm, the boys can do it. A sweep happened that brought out the saying "Ugh I hate the Mets, we will win next year! Next year is our year!" Well, it's 2016 and the boys did it, the Chicago Cubs are World Series champs!
