michele&casey|maternity // millennium park, chicago


chicago maternity photographers, chicago family photographers, chicago baby photographers, millennium park maternity session

so, so, so excited to share this session because in exactly one hour i will be meeting the little bean in these photos! and guess what?! it’s a boy! little baby l decided to make his appearance a little earlier than planned (making this blog post waaaay out of date, hehe). i loved that michele&casey wanted some photos in front of the bean. they decided not to find out the baby’s gender beforehand, so they nicknamed him “bean” while michele was still pregnant. flipping. adorable. check back soon to see all the newborn photos!!

the janes family|portraits // 5th ave station, naperville


chicago family photographers, naperville family photographers, fifth avenue station family photos

ok! so it only took us about a month to move, but we are finally up and running in our new house! and what better way to celebrate than finally posting one of my favorite families on our blog. for those of you in the wedding know, kristen is the kristen of kio kreations. she is the floral genius behind such wedding gorgeousness as amy&seth, stefanie&mike, and michelle&eric. (she also did some flowers for tony’s grandmother’s 75th birthday this year and they were to die for. i’m still obsessed!) we finally got to meet her adorable baby girl, aria, in february! despite it being chilly outside, she was all smiles when we started inside 5th ave station. cannot wait to snuggle with her again!

tiffany&jim|married // victoria in the park, mt prospect


chicago wedding photographers, mt prospect wedding photographers, victoria in the park wedding

5 awesome things about tiffany&jim’s wedding:

1) this was our fist wedding of 2013 and we got to spend it with our pal, jon, from plan a productions!

2) their wedding was the day before st patrick’s day, so they had a bagpiper lead them out of the church after the ceremony!

3) one of my favorite bridal party shots ever. 22 people. one awesome fireplace. blam!

4) adorable ceremony signage carried by the ring bearer. it never fails. small children carrying signs are always. fricken. awesome.

5) jim’s amazing michael jackson dance skillz (yes, with a “z”).

kari&chip|engaged // dc ranch, scottsdale


chicago engagement photographers, phoenix engagement photographers, scottsdale engagement photographers, dc ranch engagement photos

with all the frigid spring weather we’ve been having, let’s just say we were ecstatic to get to travel to bright and sunny scottsdale, arizona, to shoot kari&chip’s engagement session. it was a lovely 75 degrees when we shot this session at the beginning of march. (i’m currently trying to convince tony we need to “winter” in arizona… doesn’t that sound so fancy? “oh we winter in the southwest!” … sorry, got off track there for a moment!)

we are super, crazy excited for kari&chip’s july wedding! here’s to hoping chicago will finally be hitting 75 degrees around then!;)
