Steven + Jasmyn : Maternity

Baby Joubert. Due December 2018.

This little one is blessed with two of the sweetest parents in the world. I loved this maternity session in Broussard, LA and am so excited to share a few of my favorites!

Bell Family

Seeing my brother’s little family grow this year has made me so happy. I loved being able to take their family photos with the newest Bell girl, Avery! If you follow me on social media, you already know just how obsessed I am with my 3 month old niece. My heart could burst!

Adam + Naiomi : Chicago Wedding

The first word that comes to mind when I think of Adam and Naiomi’s wedding day is DREAMY! From the moment I arrived to document Naiomi getting into her sari, to the heartfelt speeches and jam packed dance floor, everything felt so perfect.

Naiomi said that her favorite part of their wedding day was either dancing or seeing Adam’s face when she changed into her dress.

Adam said that his favorite part of their wedding day was dancing.

Ceremony/Reception Venue : The Morton Arboretum

Wedding Dress: Da Vinci Bridal

Cake : The Cakery (designed by the groom)

Cake Topper : Etsy

Naiomi wore a traditional sari from Sri Lanka. Her aunts and uncles picked out the fabric and then brought it to a tailor to make the blouse. She didn’t see the whole thing until the day before the wedding and it fit perfectly!

Adam and Naiomi did a First Look before the ceremony and it was magical. In the middle of a forest of aspens, it didn’t even feel like we were in Chicago.

I loved seeing the different traditions during their sweet ceremony.

We scheduled a few minutes directly after the ceremony to take a few portraits of the newly married couple. The venue had so much to offer and we took full advantage of the 15 minutes we scheduled.

Family and friends traveled across the country and even across oceans to see the couple vow their love to each other. It was truly heartwarming to see so much love in one space and I am thankful to be able to document such a beautiful day/night.

Sigur Family Session

When your client has the PERFECT back yard right on the bayou... YES!! I love sessions with the Sigur family and seeing their family grow makes me so excited! Here are just a few from our family session a few weekends ago.

Rybalka Wedding - Adelaide, Australia

Last year while visiting Hunter in Australia, we met a newly engaged couple who wanted to hire both of us for their wedding. DREAM. COME. TRUE. Caleb and Teneale got married this past March in the most gorgeous vineyard in Adelaide, South Australia.

The ceremony and reception were at the beautiful Glen Ewin Estate right before sunset. Tears were flowing as Teneale walked down her outdoor aisle towards Caleb. The vows were emotional and the reception was a huge celebration!

Foster Jean Sigur - FIRST YEAR

Seeing my client's little ones grow over the course of a year is always so exciting. I have loved shooting Foster from birth until ONE YEAR and beyond. I have a few options for "Baby's First Year" listed on the website!

Adam + Naiomi Miami Engagements

Traveling for sessions is always so exciting, especially when it's somewhere that I've never been before! I was so thrilled to be in Miami last year to shoot Adam and Naiomi's engagment photos. Their love story starts in PARIS! They met studying abroad. They stayed in touch after returning to the US and grew closer. They lived in New Orleans, and then Miami, and are now residing in Chicago! I absolutely cannot wait to shoot their wedding in Chicago next month. Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session in MIAMI!
