Claire and Michael had a gorgeous, rustic wedding at my favorite venue in the suburbs of Chicago, Emerson Creek. After a long engagement, their hard work of wedding planning paid off, and they both enjoyed their dream wedding with their family and friends!

Enjoy highlights from their day!

  • Gorgeous wedding, Maggie. Your work is so beautiful and consistent.

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of photographing newborn photos for a family that means so much to me. My best friend of 19 years became an aunt, and her and I drove out to Indiana so I could photograph her brother and sister-in-law’s first child and son, Henry. Having stayed connected with this family a majority of my life, it has been beautiful to grow up along side them and witness their life changes — Kyle and Kelly’s first child being one of them!

Henry is beautiful baby! His features are absolutely stunning, and I cannot get enough of that little button nose:)He was the most calm newborn I have photographed too! It was such a neat experience to be present when he met his great grandfather and was surrounded by his new family. That little boy is going to be loved so well!

Kyle and Kelly, congrats on the start of your new family! You two are going to be fabulous parents, no doubt:)

Your photographer loves you lil’ Henry!
