P.S. I have exciting news to share soon (probably tomorrow, maybe later today idk!!)
Eeeeeee there’s nothing more exciting than bringing an idea in your head to life! A million thanks to everyone who helped make this styled fall shoot a reality 👇🏼

Like I said, can’t wait to share more... so here’s another 🙂
Made a quick pit stop in Des Moines on the way home from Nebraska to shoot Ryan and Jillian’s engagement pictures today! It was a race against the sleet coming our way the whole time, but (thanks to some jogging by the three of us) we (mostly) won the race and got tons of great pictures. Can’t wait to share more!!
Besides bride and groom portraits, I think brides with their bridesmaids are my favorite to shoot. (These were extra fun with Kennedi as the cutest junior bridesmaid too!) •

“Okay now make out!”
In the past 48 hours I:
- took the bus back to Iowa for Danielle and Austin’s wedding
- shot their beautiful day where the rain held off and allowed for their outdoor ceremony to happen 😍
- drove from the wedding reception straight to Carver Hawkeye Arena to try to catch @mollyrosegirl and Iowa Volleyball UPSETTING #6 WISCONSIN. (I showed up 4 mins after the fifth set ended :/)
- turned back around and drove back to Chicago with my mama to catch @shankelly3 running her second marathon - got in at 3:00 A.M. and woke up at 8:00 to chase her and @rose.yasmeen around the city and it was. so. fun. So proud of both of them (and @bigdaddyal23 who I didn’t get to see).
Bought some last-minute tickets to see Ed Sheeran at Soldier Field tonight (13th row because you only live once right?) 🤟🏼
Two minutes before shotgunning beers during her engagement shoot, Abby was showcasing her skills as a hand model
