Hello, friends! I am excited to be back into the blogging season again! It is always so refreshing to venture out for Spring engagement sessions, getting to know the couples who I will be photographing throughout the year on their special days. I met up with Stephanie and Jake a few weeks back in Lincoln Park. While going through these images, I could not help but feel the incredible bond and love these two share for one another. I think you will, too!

See you both again this June! 🙂


I had the pleasure of attending Heck Yeah Photo Camp in Joshua Tree California this past week! It was so nice to get away to some warmer temps and spend time amongst so many other talented photographers. Outside of the photo aspect of this trip, I am grateful to have been able to get to know so many new friends, as well as seeing many familiar faces. On the last day of this photo excursion there were several styled sessions setup for everyone to photograph. Seeing that I mostly work with couples, I took this opportunity to take portraits of the stunning models you’ll see below. Here are some favorites captured during that evening.
