A wedding and the first snow of the season!

Congrats to this classy couple on their recent wedding 🙂  It was, by far, one of my top three favorite venues ever – Salvage 1.  Great evening all around!

Oh the light and the faces!

The BEST light to shoot in is the “golden hour” that happens right before sunset. Photographers fight for it in the more popular locations 🙂  This shoot is one of my favorites from the 2014 fall season!

Blue eyes!

Photographing bright blue eyes always gets me excited and this family tops the list of best eyes! Thanks for being troopers and braving the bitter cold that day 🙂

Playing in the cold rain and snow :)

This cute couple braved the COLD rain and snow in downtown Chicago to capture some memorable photos to celebrate their engagement! 0C7A5991 0C7A5850 IMG_5697-2 0C7A6023-2 0C7A5941-2 0C7A5913-20C7A5880

Alivia as she grows!

Sunset shoots are always the best!! I had the pleasure of photographing Alivia when she was a newborn…and look how this little beauty as grown!

Welcome Cece!

Cece visited the Soulshine home studio and her parents braved the hot studio room to capture some sweet moments with this 15-day old little bundle of love!

Sweet 16!

Autumn at Daniel Wright Woods in Lincolnshire held on just long enough for me to get these photos of Kat.  When I think of the word, ethereal, this is what I think of…
