Engagement session number two for Kayla and Jeff. I’ve done a few of these types of engagement setups where we will do a couple different sessions, and I LOVE it! Engagement sessions provide a great opportunity to build a connection with one another. Having two of them? It’s even better. This second time around we went…

It’s been a while since I’ve been to what I call my second home, Chicago. In terms of where I travel the most, Chicago definitely takes the cake, although, this year, it’s been pretty spread out in the southern states! Ashley and Derek’s session started up near Wrigley. I absolutely love this area. Although busy…

Talk about a perfect evening for pictures, this evening was the best! We had a session swap with Astrid and AJ out at TREC Trail in Effingham and wow! What an incredibly fun time this was. Not only are they friends of ours, but Astrid is also a photographer, so one night we talked about…

With Spring upon us, I’m still convinced that winter will make it’s appearance here. Seems like it happens every year. Spring arrives and we get a dumping of snow in late March. I hope I’m wrong, but only time will tell. Taylor and Stephan were wanting some images for their save the dates. Since everything is…

The blog title has engagement pictures in it, but I should probably officially title it pre-engagement pictures. You see, it’s winter, which means it’s not too lively out, nor is it really the best of times to be outside for a couple hours having pictures taken. Noses run, cheeks turn red, and let’s be real,…

Maybe it’s just me, but I love this time of year when the days start to get shorter. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer and the vast amount of light it brings with it, but there’s something pretty awesome about photographing sunset pictures at 6:00pm, of course as this blog post is being published sunset…

Back in Chicago for an engagement session and as we found parking I found myself very excited for this session. The sun was out, the temperature was perfect, and the drive up was actually not bad for once! As we meet Rachel and Blake and made our way to the first spot for pictures, the…

It’s that time of year when the weather likes to play with us. A couple hours before the engagement session I checked the weather, just to be safe; 85% chance of rain between 5-7:00 pm. Smack dab in the middle of our session! I emailed Alex to let her know. Thirty minutes later? Zero percent…

I’m loving this springtime weather in late May! It’s just making it perfect for pictures. For Bailee and Nathan’s engagement session we went in my backyard (pretty much, but not really) to Ballard Nature Center in Altamont. It was insanely green out with everything full of life. The paths looked like they were freshly mowed…
