Sheboygan, WI Family Photographer | The H Family

A long time ago in a town not that far away, Kate and Pete were married and had their Two Brother’s Roundhouse reception crashed by a bunch of Stormtroopers. During their marriage, they had a baby named Clara who has managed to steal the hearts of everyone she meets. Pursued by the rigors of work and life, they all went on vacation in June with their whole family up on Lake Michigan in Wisconsin to save their sanity and restore relaxation to their family….

I had such a great time reconnecting with Kate, Pete, & Kate’s family last month!! I can’t believe it’s been almost FOUR years since Kate & Pete were married!! Every year Kate’s family takes a vacation up to the Sheboygan area in WI, and since they were all together in one place they took advantage of the opportunity for some family photos! The weather wasn’t exactly cooperative…we were all expecting a nice warm, summer beach shoot, but June had other plans this year so we spent about 10 minutes on the chilly windy beach grabbing a few images before heading into the trees to warm up. I can’t say I was too mad about it though, because we still got some great images, and I’m kind of a sucker for a good forest. ;) The location of their rental was the best of both worlds; nestled away in the woods without any internet service, yet just a few steps away from the beach on Lake Michigan. It’s definitely high on my list for the next time I’m looking for a secluded off-the-grid getaway! I felt refreshed just from my short time spent there photographing this bunch! Although, that may have had something to do with the company as well. This tight-knit fam is so kind and welcoming!

Here are some of my faves from my time with them!

Chapel in the Pines, Sycamore, IL Elopement Photographer | Jeff & Jennifer

Chapel in the Pines, Sycamore, IL Elopement Photographer

It’s always an honor to photograph an intimate wedding at Chapel in the Pines, and Jeff and Jennifer’s elopement was no exception!! They were married on a beautiful June day with only 3 other people in attendance: Jeff’s daughter and her boyfriend, and Jeff and Jennifer’s toddler son, Everette. Jeff & Jennifer chose to share their vows privately with each other before having the officiant perform their ceremony, and I thought it was such a nice touch for them to have that sweet, private moment. Here are some of my favorite images from their day!

Sycamore, IL In-Home Newborn Photographer | Ted, Brandie, & Teddy

Sycamore, IL In-Home Newborn Photographer

I photographed Ted & Brandie’s wedding alllll the way back in 2013, and it was a joy to catch up with them just after Thanksgiving when they welcomed Mr. Teddy to their family!! I’m not gonna lie, while we talked a ton about being new parents and all of the fun things that go along with that, a lot of our conversation revolved around nerdy literature, much the same as when I first met them way back in 2013 for their wedding consult, and I left with a few more books added to my goodreads to-be-read list. So all in all, it was a pretty productive shoot, haha! In all seriousness, I know I’ve said this before, but I really love that my job allows me to photograph the journey of a family from the very first moment of husband and wife, to the first time they’re dad and mom, and so on. It really is a special thing for me that never gets old. Also, as long as my wedding clients keep hiring me to photograph their new babies I don’t have to have any more of my own to get my baby fix. ;) ;) ;)

Anyways, here are so of my faves from my in-home shoot with Ted, Brandie, and sweet Teddy!

Sycamore, IL In-Home Newborn Photographer | Ryan, Katie, & Nathan

Sycamore, IL In-Home Newborn Photographer

Last year I photographed Ryan and Katie’s wedding. This year, I got to photograph them as they welcomed sweet little Nathan and became a family of three!! Katie and Ryan drove all the way from Florida just ONE WEEK after Nathan was born to spend Christmas here in Illinois with their family, and it worked out perfectly that I was able to photograph them just a couple of days after Christmas. Mr. Nate had just turned two weeks old when I got to see him, and he’s such a little darling with all that hair and his precious face! I truly could not get enough of this little guy, and it was so touching to see how over-the-moon in love with him his parents are. Katie was absolutely glowing while showing him off to me when I arrived, and the first thing Ryan said to me when I walked in was, “This is the best.” I know exactly how they feel. <3

P.S. I’m pretty sure Katie deserves some sort of an award (or spa day) for driving for two days just a little over one week after giving birth. How she managed to look so radiant and rested is beyond me. She’s my hero.

P.P.S. I just photographed Katie’s sister Kelly’s engagement pictures back in October, and I’m photographing Kelly and Phil’s wedding this coming September! So much excitement for this family in a few short years and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!!

Nachusa Grasslands, Franklin Grove, IL Family Portrait Photographer

It’s been about 4 years since I last photographed this crew, and man have these kids gotten HUGE!!! What really makes me feel old is that I photographed Isabel’s newborn pictures. IN 2011. I don’t even know what to do with that. I just fell down a rabbit hole looking back at those pictures, and then I remembered that I photographed Isabel’s newborn pictures the day after I found out I was pregnant with my daughter (who is my second born). I remember not feeling the best, and also being a little emotional seeing new little Isabel after just finding out I was going to have another baby. It’s funny how pictures of other people’s families and life events can bring up so many of my own memories! And I’m floored that that was SEVEN years ago! WHAT IN THE WORLD.

I met up with Tom, Lauren, & the kids at Nachusa Grasslands, which I had never heard of before Lauren suggested doing their shoot there. Have any of you out there heard of this place??? There are legit bison there! It’s so cool! And speaking of cool, it was FREEZING the day of their shoot. It was windy and cold and I felt so bad for making them traipse around without their coats on. Thankfully we moved to a more wooded area for the second part of the shoot and the wind-blocking trees made things much more bearable. They were troopers, and I have to say that I’m proud of them because I can’t even tell that they were freezing while looking through these pictures.

ANYWAYS. How ‘bout some pictures?!?
