I had so much fun this morning working with Serena & Bill and their adorable little pup, Malbec on their holiday photos!

We spent the morning wandering around Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach. Malbec loved chasing the geese and ESPECIALLY loved getting a treat after every photo! Enjoy!

I absolutely love this family (and not just because they’re my own siblings, niece and nephew!)!

The Ridders are such a fun group – always full of laughs and they have the two sweetest littles you could ever meet! Summer is a tiny ball of energy who loves to get dressed up and enjoyed keeping an eye out for Ariel in the creek, and Maverick is the sweetest, most cuddly baby boy with the BEST little wavy haired mohawk and lots of stories to coo about!

It is truly such a blessing to have been able to watch my sister fall in love, get married and now have this amazing little family of her own. Being able to hang out with them in a different setting to photograph their growth and capture their memories during these milestones is such a joy!

Alyssa and Billy – I love you guys and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you, Summer and Maverick ❤

This family is the CUTEST!

I had so much fun hanging out with this family again at Torrance Beach a few weeks ago to celebrate Silas turning ONE! Silas has the most adorable little smile – and this time around, he’s got a few teeth to show off! He is so precious, full of energy and is constantly making the funniest faces (he has got the “blue steel” look down!)!

I absolutely LOVE to watch these littles grow up and being a part of their story is such an honor ❤

(for more of these cuties, check out Silas’ 6 month milestone session here!)

Eva turned ONE!

I had so much fun working with this adorable little family to celebrate Eva’s first birthday milestone! We spent the evening wandering around the beautiful Waterfall Glen in Lemont. Eva loved exploring the creek and had so much fun playing around with mom and dad! It was such a joy to see this cutie smile so big!

Happy first birthday, sweet girl!

Glendale Lakes Golf Club Wedding Photos| Chicago, IL | Staci & Scott

Staci and Scott are MARRIED!

Staci and Scott met through a synchronized swimming group at Huntington University in Indiana. Soon after, they fell in love and Scott proposed to her by taking her to her favorite restaurant (Olive Garden!) for dinner and back to the decorated University auditorium to pop the question!

Their wedding day began with Staci getting ready at her beautiful family home. We then traveled to Faith Christian Reformed Church for their ceremony, followed by photos and a gorgeous rustic themed reception at the Glendale Lakes Golf Club. The floral designs by Signature Creations and Prestige Floral Studio were absolutely breathtaking and Sounds Abound Entertainment kept the celebrations going all night! Staci and Scott’s whole day was filled with friends, family, smiles, and so much joy!

I have been so looking forward to sharing this wedding with you all – I’ve known Staci my whole life and it was such an incredible honor to get to know her and Scott better as a couple through their planning process, engagement session and to be a part of their wedding day. The love that Staci and Scott have for each other is obvious and they are just as sweet as can be! Congratulations to the happy couple!
