It’s that time again! Time for the next month in my 2016 year in review. Today we’re taking a peek into my April, which was filled with (finally) some beautiful sunny days, family sessions, engagements, weddings, and even a wedding shower! I decided to test a new format, so now each event will have a short blurb about it, by the actual pictures themselves (what a concept)! 😉 So without further ado, here comes April 🙂
Amanda & Paul- Wedding Shower, Roscoe Village
Amanda and I were co-workers a few years ago, so it was such an honor to be part of her bridal shower! She set up the cutest decorations at the wonderful Fennel & Iris, don’t you think? And at the end, we got a surprise visitor: her (then fiance, now husband!) Paul 🙂
The Colbert Family- Rogers Park
Amanda was another co-worker of mine a few years ago, and when she told me she was pregnant, I was so happy for her! Only a few days after she gave birth, I joined them at their apartment in Rogers Park to meet little Shepard, and my goodness was he adorable (and the most calm newborn ever!). Since he was being so good, and it was such a nice day out, we decided to break from the normal indoor newborn shots and headed to the beach. Shepard was lulled asleep by the waves, and it was pretty much the cutest thing ever 🙂
Richard & Maria- Lifestyle Sessions, Lincoln Square & Albany Park
Richard & Maria both contacted me for some lifestyle shots, so we spent the afternoon wandering around two of my favorite neighborhoods to get them some casual, yet fun, photos of themselves 🙂
Salabarria Family- Downtown Chicago
Every year the girls of the Salabarria take a trip together, and this year they chose Chicago! I met them at their amazing suite in the Trump Hotel for a fun, girls (+ one boy 😉 ) photoshoot- champagne & flowers included! Can you spot the nod to the hotels name in the last photo??
Lauren & Andi- Married, Bartlett IL
Lauren & Andi’s wedding was just so wonderful and full of family and love. From start to finish they were so excited to be getting married to each other, and there’s really nothing better than that 🙂
Cisley & Scott- Engaged, Montrose Beach
Oh these two! Cisley & Scott are from Michigan, but they decided it would be fun to get married in Chicago, and so that meant Chicago engagement photos as well. We met up at Montrose Beach, and I’m not lying when I say they had each other laughing the entire time 🙂 Look for their wedding photos in July’s post!
