Ahhh … Winter, a time for me to hideout a little bit and blog some non-work photos during this slow paced time of year:)In the beginning of January, I attended my talented friend’s gig at “The Hideout“. It was a fun event that featured a handful of local artists in the Chicagoland area. I loved the space and the creative environment for these artists to share their music.

You all may remember when I blogged photos from Tyler’s CD release show months back. Well, here are some highlights of his performance the other week! If you have a minute, check out his FB PAGE and his album on itunes!

I was lucky enough to finish my last 2014 wedding season with this couple! Meet the beautiful love birds, Joanna and Will. However, I bet you remember them from their engagement session this past Spring:)

Inspiring love. Those are the two words I think of when I look back at my time of getting to know these two. Photographing two people who are are hopelessly in love and who share giddy smiles with one another any chance they get makes for a memorable day. I was constantly amazed by the care and love they showed towards one another. These two not only love one another well, but they truly love the family and friends that surround them in the most genuine way. It is a huge testament to the marriage they now have entered into and the strong foundation they now have for a lifetime of togetherness.

Thank you both for the incredible experience of getting to work with you and your friendship. Enjoy highlights from this Fall wedding!

  • I just like your beautiful photography.It’s really look’s a wonderful wedding season photography.Thank’s a lot maggiefortson for sharing it.

“You will find, as you look back upon your life, that the moments when you have truly lived — are the moments in which you have done things in the spirit of love.”

Thank you to all my clients of 2014 for letting me capture your most precious memories! It was so fun to put this post together and look back on all the incredible moments I was able to be a fly on the wall for in 2014. Capturing so much love completely changes a person’s heart and perspective on life, and I am touched to have had so many kind people enter into my world over this last year.

Here are some highlights from my 2014 season. What a year!

Hello, friends!  I am thrilled to share some images with you all today that I took for my favorite place to eat in Geneva, Moveable Feast. This business is truly one of a kind, and having the chance to work with people who are passionate about providing unique meals and products is incredibly inspiring.

I am a true believer in creating an atmosphere that is unique and inviting, and Moveable Feast succeeded in doing just that when they remodeled last year. Outside of enjoying a dine-in experience, they provide food to-go, event hosting, event/wedding catering, and in-store products.

Here are just a handful of favorites to show off this beautiful place!
