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!

Little Miss Summer Louise turned One!!

This little peanut has a special place in my heart – she’s my niece! It was such an honor to be a part of her first birthday and photograph her cake smash! All of our family and friends came together to celebrate her life with a mermaid themed party. Her beautiful (and incredibly delicious!) cake was from Dish Bakery. I hope you all enjoy the pictures as much as Summer enjoyed her cake!

Summer – Auntie B loves you so much. It has been such a blessing to watch you grow this past year, and I cannot wait to see what God has planned for you in your future! You are such a beautiful little girl with the biggest blue eyes and the most infectious smile! Can’t wait to kiss those cheeks soon! Love you peanut.
