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.
Summer in Chicago is finally here and my Chicago family sessions are officially in full swing. The clouds parted just in time for my photo session with The Barkers last week. It was so great to meet them at the South Pond in Lincoln Park while all the trees were at last in full bloom. And little Ava was the center of attention sporting her adorable jean jacket, espadrilles and the best smiles that had us all laughing out loud. There is nothing quite like summer in the city with family!
When Kari told me they wished to visit a few special places in the city that meant a lot to her and her fiance Gino- I knew we were in for a very special Engagement session together. Starting at the Lincoln Park Conservatory where Gino proposed to Kari in front of a small fountain. I couldn’t get over her dress and the perfect pop of florals against all the tropical plants.
We then went to a private roof top nearby where Gino used to live and where the first memories of their relationship blossomed. Can you believe those breathtaking views of Lincoln Park and the Chicago skyline?! I instantly fell in love too!
To end the night we took a stroll through the South Pond boardwalk and toasted with Kari’s second love Starbucks. Add one of the most perfect Fall sunsets to the mix which made for such an intimate and romantic Engagement session.
We can’t wait to celebrate with them next year for their July wedding!
We had such a great time photographing this newly engaged couple Brittany and Morgan last night around Lincoln Park. They are not only so cute together but they had great energy throughout our entire session. We are so excited to shoot there wedding in September!
We started off our engagement session with Bethany and Joel last week on a beautiful sunny fall day at there new home in Old Town. From there we walked to the Lincoln Park zoo and spent the rest of the afternoon getting to know this adorable couple while capturing there affection for one another. We were able to capture so may great shots of them together, that it was hard to stop shooting. Joe and I are so excited to be invited to spend the day with Bethany and Joel again next August when they say there I Do’s! We can’t wait!!
