Happy Park

Happy Park

It’s hard to say what I love more, shooting photos or filming. I really love photography, clearly. But these Vignettes are magical.

I met up with the V Family this summer in one of my favorite locals, Chicago’s Lincoln Park.

Mom V is a friend of mine, so I was already excited to just hang out with the family but I was even more excited because the shoot was super laid back & the V’s were totally content with letting me just sort of make it up as we went along.

My inspiration for this film was fun. I wanted to capture the energy of this young family, their joy of just being together & their very close bond. Some of my favorite moments are just of them being them, all the hugs & laughter. After watching it about a million times in post, it still makes me smile really big.

Thanks so much for coming out & letting capture your family, you guys were amazing!

Homebound

As soon as I met the M Family, I knew we were very in sync. Like-minded if you will. I walked in the door and they were playing She & Him…on the turntable. I liked them instantly.

While Dad M started making me the most heavenly cappuccino I’ve ever tasted, Mom M and I chatted about their upcoming session and even more excitedly, about their film.

I should add that when I met the M Family, there were only two of them. We had originally planned to do a maternity film. The day before we were scheduled to begin production, Baby M was born.

Even though the story took some reworking, I couldn’t be happier with it. It is such a joy for me to see it come to life. And both of the M’s were so lovely to work with to get to know. I have the greatest appreciation of them for taking this little journey with them.

So without further adieu, check it out and afterwards, be sure to scroll beneath the player to see photos from Baby M’s newborn session.

Lovely Little Snow Day!

Lovely Little Snow Day!

So here in Chicago there are, well typically, plenty of snow days. Personally, I love them. I love the snow when it blankets everything with a bright soft layer of white and everything just has that glow to it.
