Hello

Brooke & Zhas

A Waterworks Prairie Park Summer Maternity Shoot

Family & Kids

I was so thrilled when Brooke contacted me about doing these photos! I had met Brooke and Zhas back in 2015 for their engagement session, followed a year later by their beautiful, intimate backyard wedding¬†in Chicago (which has long lived as a favorite of mine!). So I was extra excited to see them again, now […]

The Phillips Family

Family & Kids

It was much colder last year at their session and they were also missing a wonderful, squishy, smiley piece of their family: baby Noah! Charlotte has grown so much, perhaps being a bit sister will do that. She is the same age as my daughter and it’s always fun to photograph kids whose ages and […]

I first photographed Stephanie and Matt at their engagement session (back when I was pregnant with Henry!) and then on their wedding day! Two years ago, I […]

Jessica & Chase

A Marriott Iowa City Summer Wedding

Weddings

Chase proposed to Jessica last year in Italy and when she said yes there on the Amalfi Coast, they never knew all that would come up before their wedding date arrived. Whew. They started planning their wedding for May 30, 2020 (see their engagement session here) and when the pandemic hit, they had to start […]
