Matt & Suzi | engaged!

my couple for an october wedding! i seriously cannot wait! first of all, matt and suzi have been best friends for a really long time.. and then fell in love. i love this kind of story because it looks similar to my own. the one piece of advice i can give to any couple looking to get married is this: marry your best friend. you’ll end up laughing together more than crying together. working together on the same team verses butting heads. having fun. being crazy. living and loving life.View full post »

Ellie | newborn

newborns will always hold a special place in my heart. my youngest is almost 18 months, and when i got to eric & steph’s house for a lifestyle/newborn session, i was so eager to hold this sweet newborn again! so teeny tiny. so perfect. so girly. i loved it. thank you, eric & steph, for allowing me to capture your family’s moments!!View full post »

Sweet Arabella | 1yr

this sweet girl was a joy to photograph. if i have said it once, i’ve said it a million times — in home sessions are the BEST!!  I’ll say it again… the best! I love when the momma or daddy can just relax and allow their babe to be relax in their own environment! we’ll just open up all the windows in the house and have a party! thanks to arabella and her momma, Becca, for making my job so fun!!View full post »

andrew & holly

andrew & holly are hilarious. this was my first time getting to spend time with them in front of the camera and i want to do it again and again! as you can tell, it was such a fun, relaxed session. as a lifestyle photographer, one of my highest priorities is to make my clients feel COMFORTABLE. we take our time, we laugh, and then we shoot. the end result speaks for itself! next time, i’ll make coffee and sconesView full post »

sam, lenny & layla! |families

i love this girl! sam has been my manager at aerie here in Central IL for about 5 years now! just ask anyone who works there – i don’t think she knows how to say one mean thing about anyone. (unless it’s on a floorset night! ;)) anyways, she came to me and asked for Christmas photos and of course, I happily obliged! i can’t wait to shoot with them again and get sweet Gemma (the family dog!) in the photos.  View full post »

tullos family | day in the life

so i had the amazing opportunity to capture the tullos family as they “do life”. these are the types of lifestyle sessions i prefer. what you see in the images below is the authentic, real, beauty of life. sometimes its hard. most times there’s crying babies. but really, its that we choose the see the good in everything. we choose to capture everything and stamp it with love, and tuck it away for memories to pull up later in life. so stroll through these photos. you can seeView full post »
