Downtown Chicago Engagement Session

Desktop73 copy

 

 

Trust me when I tell you, this was the COLDEST engagement session I have ever done. It was also one of the funnest, and just in time for Valentine’s Day! Chicago in February however,  is ice cold.  This amazing couple, who will be getting married in Tucson this fall, were serious troopers. It was 18 degrees, and getting colder by the second when we started the shoot. For their winter session, the birde, Katie, decided to have a hot-chocolate themed shoot, in addition to getting a few quintessential downtown  Chicago shots. This is one of my very favorite session, because it was just so personal. Everything about the session felt like a nod to the two of them. First off, they both work in finance, in downtown Chicago, so the start of this session really summed that up. Next, the couple did a quick change, and poured some hot chocolate into the mugs they use daily at home,  using the birdes Dad’s vintage Thermos. The couple brought a very southwest Pendleton blanket to keep them warm however, which was graphically perfection. Enjoy more below…

Thompasson Family Holiday Sesseion

This FACE! I first met this sweet baby girl at her newborn shoot, when she was teeny tiny and under weight…my how the times have changed. She is the sweetest, chunkiest, happiest baby and I had a blast at her shoot. For this family session we met at a pecan grove here in Tucson, just as the leaves had begun to yellow. The mama, Jackie (with the most amazing head of hair you have EVER seen!), did an amazing job styling these three and it was just so hard to pick out my favorites. Enjoy looking! Thompasson (2 of 528)

Borland Holiday Shoot

 

Borlands (34 of 320)

What started as a clammily of mishaps….turned into one of the cutest shoots with some of my favorite people. Isn’t that the way? In the fall Graham and I packed up and headed over to Austin, TX to explore a little Texas hospitality and visit my adorable nephews! Of couse no visit with the McDonnell’s is complete without a photo-shoot.  After much debate in locations we settled on a park that was walking distance from their house- which made things easy for the boys. With the gorgeous open landscape, tall yellow grasses and beautiful trees, this park provided a great backdrop to this beautiful family. I brought Graham along with me…which provided a mix of both laughing and crying. The shots from this shoot are some of my favorites ever. These four are so kind, loving and full of life- such a fun combo to photograph!  Enjoy! Happy Holidays!Borlands (46 of 320)
