Josh and Rebecca - The Wedding

Beautiful weather, lovely couple, and unique style were all elements that made Josh and Rebecca's wedding day wonderful. I honestly think it is just the best when a bride and groom stray a bit from the cliche and bring their own style into their big day. Rebecca was definitely going with the wow factor with those lashes:) It was fun, it was different, and it was great!

Pretty bride!

And Josh was looking pretty great himself!

Their 'first look", these two laughed a lot and I loved it!

One of my favorites.

Had to get another lash shot:)

These flower girls were just the cutest! Rebecca made all of their accessories and the girls were pretty giddy about it all:)

And this little guy... so cute!

The whole clan.

Congrats newlyweds, your day was awesome!

Princess Party

My neighbor and friend put together a super cute princess party for her daughter's 6th Birthday. Princess Belle showed up to do face painting, balloon figures, games, and dancing with all the girls ( It was adorable to see the wonder and excitement on all the little girl's faces when the princess arrived and announced that she had even brought makeup for them to wear:) It was great capturing all their happiness at this fun event! Julia was pretty excited showing mom the lovely pantings that Belle had created .

Jennifer is so sweet, she is a teacher in my daughter's Sunday school class and she is getting to know Ivy really well. She knew that Ivy loves the color blue right now and even with the decor being mostly pink at this princess party she thought of Ivy and made sure that Belle brought her a blue tutu, so nice!

Ivy asked Belle to paint a blue spider on her cheek, she is a bit unique I must say:)

Happy 6th Birthday, Julia! Your party was magical!

Meet Baby Albany

I was thrilled to photograph this sweet new little lady at just 12 days old; she is a beauty! Her parents are two very wonderful people that I am honored to have known for many years now and it was so wonderful to see the joy they are experiencing through their new daughter. Brittany and Nick had chosen to wait till baby's birthday to find out if they had a boy or girl and Albany was a lovely surprise! They named her after a location in Chicago where the two met, love it when a name has so much meaning:) They are a cute little family now that are just glowing with happiness!

Brit created a super cute baby room for her little gal, she even hand-made some of the adorable elements that make it meaningful and unique.

Comfy and content with a full belly:)

Nick is a proud new daddy, nothing sweeter!

Albany loves to curl up close to her momma, fits perfectly in her arms.

Love this shot, Brit is glowing with pride!

Well good morning!

This basinet was originally Bittany's grandmother's, such a wonderful heirloom. And all the little critters where made with love to Albany from her momma:)

Such a sweet time of life this is for you all, enjoy every bit of your beautiful Albany!
