Wine, Food & Family

This was one of the first families we met after our move to the Chicagoland area. Jean-Pierre (aka J.P.) stopped by to welcome us to the neighborhood with the most wonderful spread of cheese, meats, fruit and wine. When they asked if I would photograph their family, my mind started racing about the possibilities of this session. Teresa is a talented violinist (as well as their children). J.P. is a professor and an undeniable foodie. The conversation is anything but dull with this family and their home is as open as their hearts. Thank you guys for choosing me to capture your unique and spirited family! xo

Washington D.C. Travel Session-It’s a beautiful life…

This was my first travel session and I’m officially hooked. I love the excitement of searching for new locations and light in different cities. I arrived in Washington, D.C. two days before my first shoot. I spent those days visiting with friends and scouting the area. Each morning I woke up, packed my gear, made a quick stop at the local coffee shop and was on my way. It was incredibly peaceful to sit in one of the most beautiful parks in Northern Virginia and just listen to the sound of the falls on the Potomac. It’s inspiring and so were the gorgeous families I photographed. Here is a peek at one of the first sessions of the trip. Enjoy!

Morning Light

The best part of being busy and working hard is that I’m out shooting {doing what we as photographers love most}, but it leaves little time for blog posts. I will be posting more from my recent sessions soon! In the meantime, I couldn’t help but post a few after location scouting this morning with my favorite assistant. Looking forward to another beautiful session tomorrow….
