Kristen and Ruben’s Spring Engagement Session was one of my first ones outside for the year! I feel like it really kicked off the season for me being a Crystal Lake Wedding Photographer! We had a GORGEOUS day of almost 80 degrees and plenty of sunshine! I first met Kristen and Ruben in January at a bridal fair, and I was lucky enough to be chosen to photograph their wedding this Fall at Pinecrest Golf Club in Huntley! I was excited for Chloe, their dog to come with to the session! She really was sweet! I’ve learned that Kristen and Ruben first met on Halloween in 2010! She was dressed as Aphrodite and he was dressed as a Man with a poncho, sombrero, and riding a donkey! Now, 6 years later, almost, they will be married! How cool! Kristen and Ruben enjoy being home and watching cooking shows together and root for Da Bears! I can’t wait for 10-1-16!!!! XOXO...

I always love a good Cake Smash Photo Session, right in my Crystal Lake studio!!  I have 3 kiddos, 11,9 and 5- so I love to see these little ones and get my baby fix!   These one year olds that come to see me, most of the time have never tasted sweets before! Give them a cake with some buttercream and lots of frosting, and you are sure to get some silly faces! I first met Madilyn when she was in her Mommy’s tummy, and took her newborn photos as well. I was so excited to be ask to take Madilyn’s one year cake smash photos as well! Thanks for coming to see me Madilyn! I hope you enjoyed your party! XOXO...

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 http://kathleenbuhrmannphotography.com/! 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...
