I couldn’t think of a better way to jump start this new year with not one but (count’em) TWO Photography awards. Thank you to all my past Wedding and Family Photography clients which without you and your amazing reviews these awards would not be possible. So happy to have been awarded the Wedding Wire Couple’s Choice Award. This award recognizes the top five percent of local wedding professionals on WeddingWire who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and professionalism. Winners are determined by reviews left by the best newlyweds that I have had the pleasure to work with.
And for the second year in a row I have been honored as one of Chicago’s best Family Photographers by Expertise. This award is based on credibility, reputation, experience and professionalism. With over 700 local Photographers surveyed only 19 were picked as the top in Chicago. Thank you to all the sweet families who I have had the honor to photograph such amazing memories for.
This sweet family of four- The Milnes Family met me at one of my favorite parks in my neighborhood of Logan Square. I love the mix of backdrops that Humbolt Park offers which includes small ponds with lily pads, lush trees lined alongside winding walking paths, and a cute boathouse with great architecture. These cuties just rocked their photography session- I hope to see them again next year!
When I started imagining this solopreneur life for myself about 5 years ago never in a millions years would I think that I (me and my little photography business) would be nominated to be on any list in Chicago. A HUGE THANK YOU to Expertise for naming me one of the Top 19 Family Photographers in the city of Chicago. I am so grateful and continue to be humbled everyday to be able to meet new families and couples every month- their stories are the ones I get to tell through photographs and help create lasting memories for them and their families. It really is the best job in the world and I hope to continue documenting stories for many more years to come. xo
Nothing is as good as a lifestyle family photography session at home. So when Sarah reached out and invited me into her home to photograph their first family session I was beyond thrilled. It’s such an honor as a photographer to get to capture these precious first newborn moments because they just grow in the blink of an eye. Mix in the fact that Sarah is a freelance prop stylist (hence her beautifully decorated Bucktown home) paired with the sweetest and smallest baby flower crown created by local florist Pistil and Vine. I had the perfect backdrop for The Freel’s cozy family session. Baby Reese is simply adorable and on her way to becoming as stylish as her mom- Congrats!!
If you would like to schedule a lifestyle family session let’s connect soon as I am only taking a limited amount of family sessions this season. xo

I love photographing families for the first time. And the Soracoe family were pros to say the least! Photographing some special memories with their one year old Caroline at the Nature Boardwalk in Lincoln Park was such a blast! The sun was out during our morning photo session as well which just added to the beautifully warm lighting. I can’t wait to photograph this family again later this year.
