Terry + Drew | Tuscan Photography session in Siena, Italy

The reason I love what I do so much is that I get to meet and know such incredible people along the way. I love making such great connections with clients and learning about their story, it really informs our relaxed sessions and makes them something special. I met Terry and Drew in Florence and we made arrangements to meet up later in the town square of Siena for a session among the walls of the Medieval Tuscan city. Terry is a fantastic Phoenix photographer and we had so much fun talking about our businesses and learning about each other’s families over pizza after our session. Check out their session below.

Dale + Meredith’s Engagement Photos | Florence, Italy Destination Wedding

Shooting meaningful photos of a beautiful couple in an romantic European location has always been a dream of mine. This Spring I got my first opportunity to help shoot a fantastic love story in Florence, Italy. Dale and Meredith are talented wedding photographers in Northwest Arkansas. They turned their romantic destination wedding into a workshop, inviting a small group of photographers along to share their knowledge and business experience. It was a great experience and we got some incredible photos in one of the most romantic cities in the world.

We hit the streets of Florence right away for an engagement photo session along the Arno River, an amazing backdrop of ancient bridges drenched by the light of the setting sun. Photographers love to shoot couples dressed in bold colors, so it was no surprise Dale and Meredith showed up in amazing bright colors, the real surprise for me was that it perfectly matched their bright personalities and love for each other.

There’s so much more to share from Italy, so check back to see Dale and Merediths wedding and some other fun sessions.

The light was fantastic and we shot some amazing portraits along the ancient Ponte Vecchio bridge. 

Becky + Mike + Josie | Family Photography in Westmont, IL

You may remember Mike and Becky from their Chicago maternity photography session. Well, now their new addition, Josephine Grace has been welcomed to the world and it’s time to document this special time. It’s almost a guarantee that you can get good sleeping baby photos within the first 10 days of being born, Josie was a champ, keeping herself awake through our whole photo session. We usually leave a lot of time for feeding breaks allowing us to get set up for different shots, but Josie seemed to be into the session and didn’t want to stop for anything. Check out all the fuzzy goodness below. This is my favorite shot of the whole day, the family all cozy in bed, framed by the mirror on their dresser. Thanks Mike and Becky for inviting me into your home to capture such a special time in Josie’s new life! Welcome to the world, Josie!
