Jackie and Matt were my first Villa Olivia Wedding and the my first wedding of 2016!  I had never been to Villa Olivia before! I must say, it’s quite a nice venue! I would definitely enjoy photographing a future wedding here! Jackie and Matt first contacted me several months ago! I was super excited I was available for their date! We lucked out and had a gorgeous day for their “engagement” photos. You can see their engagement photos here, Jackie and Matt were actually married last year, so this was their Vow Renewal and Party! Jackie and Matt each have 2 children of their own that they brought into this marriage. I must say, I had tears in my eyes during the entire ceremony. The way this family interacted with eachother was amazing! These siblings showed such a deep love for one another. Jackie and Matt themselves never seemed to stop smiling and lauging! I love that! Their wedding was so fun! They had Dj Bobby Styles and Dj Bobby D! It was a non stop dance party! I wish you many years of happiness! XO...

Newborn Lifestyle Photography is one of my favorite sessions!  It’s an honor yet scary to be asked to photograph another photographers family! Kathleen is an amazing wedding photographer with! We first met several years ago when we were both on our way home from weddings and she took note of my website, (listed on my van) and emailed me! Ever since we shoot with each other and I am proud to call her my friend. Kathleen and Michael welcomed Madison June a few weeks before I was blessed to meet her. She already has 2 big brothers watching over her, Clyde and Moose. Lifestyle Newborn sessions are one of my favorite sessions to do! So relaxed and in the comfort of your own home! I can’t wait to see this sweet little family blossom!...

I love being a Crystal Lake Family Photographer!  Denise and Elizabeth contacted me to photograph their twins, Nate and Oliver!  I was excited for this session for a little over a months time! I love when I get to photograph twins. There is such a special bond between them. I simply loved the way this beautiful family interacted with each other. It melted my heart. I wanted to snuggle these boys all day, but their Mommies wanted to take them home! The boys were having their First Birthday party just a couple weeks later, I sure hope they had a great time with their cake!   LOL I had a fabulous time with this family and hope to see them again! XOXOXO...

I’ve had the pleasure of being Tim and Marta’s family photographer for the past few years! I’ve known Tim since we were much younger, and a couple years ago I was blessed with meeting his wife Marta and 2 of his beautiful children. I truly love our time together. These parents are beyond amazing, they make 4 kids look easy. I was excited when Marta called me one day, (while I was strolling through Hobby Lobby) and wanted to include both sets of parents with their next session. I thought that was awesome! Preserving memories are so important as our lives change and grow! We had a very busy and energetic session with awesome results 🙂 I love seeing their family grow!!! XOXOXO...

I absolutely love being a Crystal Lake Illinois wedding photographer! It’s been quite some time I’ve blogged. I figured what a better time since I was able to do a session outside! OMGEEEEEEE It’s coming! SPRING! Better weather, incredible sunsets! YAY! YES! WAHOO! I have my first wedding of the year TOMORROW! Wahoo! I’m so excited! I really have a strong passion for weddings! My goal is to really start to make them more of my main focus in coming years! I don’t normally post a lot of Black and White images, however, I just love the shadows from the trees in these images! I also love the emotion in these images. I mean, look at Jackie’s contagious laugh! I am already envisioning how the day will be tomorrow! FUN, FUN, FUN!!! Can’t wait for tomorrow, Jackie and Matt!...

I can’t wait to meet so many more sweet newborn babies and their parents this year! Please share my work with anyone you know that is expecting a baby! I would really appreciate it! Love...
