This was our second Hello Dolly shoot and my goodness, it was SCORCHING outside! I can’t remember the exact temperature but it was in the 90s with crazy humidity. Yet you’d never know it by looking at how flawless Rebecca is in all of these super cute clothes! Here are some of my favorites from our June shoot!
This Summer I started a collaboration with Hello Dolly, a traveling clothing boutique based out of the Midwest. You can shop online, at Pop Up events, or at in home Trunk Shows. You should book a Trunk Show, seriously so much fun and who doesn’t love hanging out and shopping with all your girlfriends?!
Hello Dolly shoots are always a blast, filled with trendy fashions, awesome accessories, and tons of laughter. This is the first of many shoots together. Can’t wait to show you more!
Back by popular demand… Summer Minis!
These minis are a perfect way to refresh family photos in a short and sweet session plus you get two 8×10 prints of your choice with your 6 digitals!

On August 5th, I will be joining thousands of runners from across the country to participate in my 3rd St. Jude Run. I am part of the Chillicothe to Peoria St. Jude Run satellite team and our leg consists of just over 55 miles. I plan to run as many of those miles and raise as much money as I am able to. Last year, I ran 33 miles on run day and raised $3,300. I set my goal higher this year and would love to reach it but I still have a long way to go so I decided to donate $25 from each Fall Mini Session to my fundraising goal. All of the money we raise goes to make sure that families never receive a bill for the time their child spends at St. Jude, including housing, travel, food, and treatments. Every little bit helps.
I included some photos in this post so you get a little feel for run day. The picture of me and my husband is right around 20 miles in 🙂 the day is full of inspiration, encouragement, emotion, and I consider it to be one of the best days of the year because of the runner culture and the amazing people I have met in the years I have been part of this team.
In order to secure a session, a $25 must be made to my St. Jude fundraising page, then the remaining $125 must be paid before the session. If you see a date/time combo that works for you, please email me at email@example.com (fastest method) or comment on this blog post to snag it.
The following dates and times are available to book:
Friday, August 11th @ Hudson Crossing Park in Oswego, IL: 3:00pm, 4:00pm, 5:00pm, and 6:00pm
Saturday, September 23rd @ The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL: 2:00pm,

I look forward to seeing you for a Fall Mini Session! I will update this post as session slots become unavailable.
Any Chicago family session will always have a special place in my heart, having grown up a city girl close to Chicago. For a few years now, I have had SO much fun exploring different parts of Chicago with this family! Each year they choose a different part of Chicago to have their session in. This year, we tackled Millennium Park and Maggie Daley Park. I love hanging out with this family every year and I can’t wait to see the adventures we will go on next year!
Showing me how to dab… I think that’s what it’s called? I’m too old for that hahaha.
So much fun wandering around awesome places for this Chicago family session!
