Their puppers Jax + Miller certainly had fun (see their happy faces below!) WELCOME to the Midwest, Walden fam!! I’m thankful […]

Sydney and Nick’s Snow Session

Meg and Nick!! These lovers met in spring of 2014 while waiting in line outside a Chicago bar. Meg’s first thought was that Nick was the most beautiful person she’d ever seen, and she immediately turned to her friends and told them she loved him!! When Nick gave Meg his number several weeks later, it took […]

Fall is in full swing, and it’s my FAVORITE time of year for photo sessions for obvious reasons! The golden colors, the pretty sunsets, the slightly cooler temps… I could go on and on. To kick off the fall season, I met up with Jackie and David in Lincoln Park for some sweet couples’ photos […]

Washington DC is known for its cherry blossoms, but did you know Chicago also has a beautiful display of blooms (with way less tourists??) This special spot behind the Museum of Science and Industry has quickly become my new favorite for springtime engagement sessions.
