Weeping Willows, Golden Light and A Beauty

Who knew senior year would creep up so quickly… It seems like just yesterday I was pushing you in the jogging stroller, chasing you around the park and watching Lemonade Mouth with a room full of 4th graders. You always had the chubbiest (cutest ever) of cheeks, the biggest smile and loved (still) keeping your sisters in line! This year is bittersweet for sure. How did it go by so fast?!  We are so proud of the young woman you’ve become! Can’t wait to see what you accomplish…Oh the places you’ll go! (GO IU;) XO, Mom

 

Hapiart Commercial Shoot

Now that the blog has a fresh new look for 2015, I thought this would be a great time to finally share some more recent work! Late this fall, I spent the day with artist Kristi Kohut, founder of Hapiart. Kristi contacted me for a commercial shoot representing her artwork. She was being featured in various publications and needed professional images . She currently has her gorgeous, vibrant, one-of-a-kind pieces offered through Minted, West Elm and One Kings Lane. I had a fabulous time with Kristi staging her beautiful pieces and photographing her at work.

No need to fall into the post holiday blues. I can finally share some of the great sessions I’ve been promising to post! This lovely “at home” sesh turned into a fabulous little family field trip to the Oberweis Dairy Bar. I think the kids had a great time and the look on their faces when the giant ice cream sundaes showed up was nothing short of priceless. Loved working with this family and you might just recognize Katy from The Dailey Method. She is the owner of their Northbrook location. This family’s energy was top notch! Enjoy!

 

Oh, the places you’ll go….

I remember a dear family friend giving me the book “Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, by Dr. Seuss, just before graduating from high school. I looked at it thinking, “Ok, I’m a little old for Dr. Seuss, but sure, thanks. Little did I realize then, how much truth and great advice existed in that one popular children’s book. It’s a favorite in our house now. This was a travel session from my time in the D.C. area back in August. I was fortunate enough to work with this beautiful rising senior and her family. The location was a private academy in Middleburg, VA and it was nothing short of stunning. Good luck Madison! Enjoy!

A little peek at what I’ve been up to lately…

I promise I still blog…I’ve just been so busy with sessions and the planning (all that goes into running this dream). My clients take the front seat, so the blog has taken a back seat. Here’s a snippet of summer 2013 with lots more goodness to come…If you don’t know about T|L on facebook, like the page and stay up to date on new happenings. xo
