Somehow I made it through September with some of my sanity remaining (and by some, I mean it takes me a few seconds to know what day it is… but I get there eventually). But it hasn’t been easy. It’s been full of hectic planning, editing in my car parked outside an event three nights […]

september goals recap. october goals setting.

A few months ago, I was given the amazing opportunity to photograph Hendrick’s Gin Voyages Into the Unusual at Salvage One in Chicago. Not only was this a dream location, but the entire event was beyond anything I could have imagined. The three night event featured vendors from all over the U.S. conducting a Cocktail Academy […]

hendrick’s gin – voyage into the unusual | chicago event photographer.

When I met Jordan of Jordan Quinn Photograph at Jasmine Star’s theFIX, I was immediately drawn to her energy and welcoming personality. We started talked about me second shooting for her almost immediately since she’d been in the industry longer and I knew I could learn a lot from her, not to mention have a blast double […]

second shooting weddings. what i learned.

Ok, so it’s not from Pinterest. But it was a new recipe and I DID make it for Danny. One September goal checked off the list 🙂 {Whole grain penne tossed in a homemade tomato sauce, sprinkled with italian Sausage, & baked with mozzarella cheese}

one goal achieved.

Because photog has been crazy busy these past few months and probably won’t slow down until Christmas time, if I want to put in some quality time with anyone it usually has to be planned a few weeks in advance. But on that rare occassion, everything spontaneously comes together, which most of the time results […]

family bowling night.

When I first met Teri at the Starbucks around the corner from her beautiful Lincoln Park condo, we sipped on matching Passion Fruit Iced Teas as we chatted about work, personal life, and photography. We talked about how her and Rich’s wedding would be laid back, fun, and all about the love. No distractions from […]

teri + rich | chicago garden wedding

To get the iPhone or stick with an Android (First World Problems!). I’ve been going back and forth on this decision for a few months now and now that the new iPhone 5 is officially out and my contract has been expired for a month, it’s time to make a decision. The fact that this […]

iphone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III

As I pulled up to Museum Campus, I found myself in the middle of a cooler carrying, foam finger pointing, football jersey wearing crowd. And then it dawned on me. I had failed to account for the Bears Home Opener when scheduling the location of my Chicago family portrait session. Since Soldier Field is just […]

chicago family portraits.

It was just passed 11:00am as I was sitting in Advanced Algebra 2 Trig, struggling to wrap my head around cosine, tangent, and sine; baffled at how I was supposed to find the value of x, y, and z; and trying to stifle my growling stomach as I wondered what I was going to eat […]

we will never forget.

While I thought I had just been fighting off allergies for the past few weeks, it has officially turned into a cold. Sore throat, sniffly nose, ear ache… I got it. Just in time for my busy season, too. Can you tell how excited I am to be feeling under the weather? Needless to say, […]
