12 details to have on hand the morning of your wedding

6 tips for choosing your portrait session outfits

It was New Year’s Eve. Twinkle lights hung from the rafters and along the bannister. The head table was lined up, adorned with wine bottles and evergreen linens. Arrangements boasting pinecones and spruce springs adorned the guests’ tables, and La Vie en Rose drifted from the speakers. Gina’s home had been completely transformed to become the […]

New Year’s Eve Milwaukee Wedding | Gina + Nick

Three years ago, my new year’s resolution was to read 12 books in a year (I figured finishing one book/ month was a good goal for me). The past two years I’ve done well in the first months of the year, yet by May I get off track, never to finish anywhere near 12 by […]

Books I Read in 2020

These people right here… they are the ones that kept me goin’ through this crazy year! All of my weddings but six were postponed, so the large majority of the work I did this year was engagement sessions. It was SO good to get out and spend time with all 17 of the engaged couples […]

2020 Best of Engagements

Maternity boudoir might just be my new favorite thing to photograph. As every mom knows, pregnancy is a really beautiful yet challenging season of life. There are certainly highs (excitement of meeting your babe, feeling the first little kicks) and lows (morning sickness, fear of labor/ delivery, general discomfort) to the whole process. Being a […]

Maternity Boudoir Session | Ashlyn

This is it: my last engagement session of 2020! And it sure ended with a bang!! Meet Emily and Adam, my new best friends and the sweetest, kindest people ever. From the very first email, I knew Emily was my kind of person (and if she was marrying Adam, I knew he’d be as well!). […]

Lapham Peak Fall Engagement | Emily + Adam

Gosh, these TWO!! Claire and Andrew are such amazingly kind and genuine people– I don’t know how the best people ever find me and book me to shoot their wedding, but for that I’m ever grateful! From the first pre-booking Zoom call when we virtually met, we just really hit it off and I remember […]

Fall Seven Bridges Engagement | Claire + Andrew

I have been looking forward to this engagement session for SO long, and not just because it was in my old home of Chicago. Mallory and Paul are two of the most genuine people, and it was such a treat to spend time with them! They met at a bar on the same block as […]

Chicago Engagement Session | Mallory + Paul

My Milwaukee fall minis have officially ended for the 2020 season, and what a season it was! I was able to connect with 16 different families throughout the course of two weeks and I might go as far as saying it was the best year yet 😉 We had three dogs join us this year […]

Milwaukee Fall Minis | 2020 Recap

Introducing Melissa and Clayton! We chased the brightest fall colors all throughout their session and looking through these, you can tell we were VERY successful 🙂 Melissa and Clayton chose to start their session at Milwaukee’s beautiful Lake Park which had the most beautiful red and orange leaves! Melissa even brought along a fall bouquet […]

Lake Park Engagement | Melissa + Clayton

My love for these two runs pretty deep! If you’ve been around here long, you’ll recognize Ingrid and Jaron from their engagement session last summer. They had their wedding planned for this July, but like so many couples, they had their plans upended because of covid. So, the silver lining in all of this is […]
