Well, here we go! Another year in the books and I've had time to reflect and sift through the endless images from 2017 - 24 weddings and 37 engagement/lifestyle sessions. It's taken me a month into the new year to really let everything sit and steep. It's been a year of challenges and new beginnings - my first official year in business full-time. I pinch myself on the daily because I feel so lucky to do what I do.

Below are bits and pieces of 2017, juuuust a little glimpse. People are at the heart of what I love to capture and I truly hope it shows. Thank you to all the lovely couples who trusted me to document such important moments of their lives; I'll forever be grateful.

Press play n' scroll on, baby!

Chicago In-Home Engagement Session // Jaymee + Jake

Oh my goodness. These two are freaking amazing - that's my PSA. I am so grateful for them as new friends and their love that brought me to Chicago.  I got the chance to meet their furry family member, Leo, who wasn't a huge fan of me or my camera, but was so darn cute nonetheless (RIP to Mr. Leo who passed a recently). After hanging out at there home for a bit, we headed downtown and wandered around the busy streets, ending the night with a lovely Mediterranean dinner. I'm so grateful for people like Jaymee and Jake in my life and I hope you can see why in the photos below. So, press play and enjoy.
