Julie and Chris . Chicago Sunrise Engagement . Sneak Peek

I was exiting off of Lakeshore Drive at 5:45am this morning, watching the colors of the pre-sunrise start to form in the sky. Julie and Chris weren’t far behind, and before we knew it we were freezing on the edge of the lakefront getting some beautiful shots as the sun first peeked over the horizon! I was layered up with all of my cold weather running gear, but these two had to brave the cold temps and hide the shivers! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek…

The Holga!

I am really excited about including Holga images in my weddings and engagement sessions this year! So, to get ready, I had to practice. I thought I would share some of my first rolls of film. I think I am in love…

We have seen nature in a state of resurrection for quiet awhile now; now I have to mow my lawn. And it is only April 8th! But that is neither here nor there. Happy Easter everyone – a time to celebrate the Resurrection. So I thought I would put up a blog of these trees, shrubs and other nature-y things coming back to life. I hope that you have a great day, however you may spend it! He is risen!

And before we went hunting for these “rebirths” happening at the Arboretum, we had to have a picnic lunch and some play time as well!
