Bre and Glenn’s Military Wedding at Danada House – Wheaton, Illinois Wedding Photographer

Bre and Glenn were married on a brisk but very beautiful day and I am so happy they made a last minute decision to have their ceremony outside. Danada House is such a unique venue and provided a beautiful backdrop. It was an absolute honor to photograph their military wedding, especially being a wife to a veteran myself. This post has soo many images in it mainly because I had so many favorites I just couldn’t narrow them down! Bre and Glenn are such an awesome couple and have such an amazing family, this wedding was a blast to be a part of.

Due to popular demand, I have set aside Sunday, April 12th for some special outdoor Mommy & Me mini sessions! These short and sweet sessions make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day because let’s face it, Mommies are hardly ever in the photos because they are always the ones TAKING the photos. Am I right? No more excuses, here is your chance to finally get in those photos 🙂

Maternity Session for Best Friends – Lombard, Illinois Maternity Photography – Lilacia Park

With all this dreary snowy weather in Chicago the past few days, I started to dream of Spring. One of my most favorite Spring sessions was never blogged and I wanted to take this opportunity to remind myself that this super cold weather won’t last forever, this snow will melt away and that beautiful colors and warm weather will be here before I know it.

I met these two best friends at Lilacia Park in Lombard, Illinois, for their joint maternity session. The lilacs were in full bloom in early May when we were there and the colors in all the flowers were just gorgeous! It was the most perfect setting for some maternity photos.

Amber and Bree have remained very close friends since childhood and were able to have the super awesome experience of being pregnant at the same time. First of all, how cool is that?! To be able to experience the crazy and beautiful journey of motherhood for the first time with your best friend is so unique! I’m so honored that I was able to capture this special time in their lives for these two beautiful women.
