Milk bath newborn session

I had the privilege of photographing Liz during her maternity season. Near a beautiful park in Riverside, IL. It was quite the magical session. Her husband and her are truly two souls deeply in love. When they contacted me regarding her newborn session I just knew it was going to be a super special. Liz had a vision, she wanted a milk bath newborn session. It was my first time doing this, so of course I started doing some research and the more I learned about it, the more excited I’d get.

When the day came and I finally met their bundle of joy, I was so amazed to see how this beauty was absolutely so calm during this session. Everything came together so perfect!

Now, as I see these portraits I am simply grateful to be able and do what I love. Capturing a miracle through this creative language is quite the blessing!

Lavender Valley Maternity

There is beauty in the miracles that surround us, from the creation of the world to the creation of life within life.

This session was so magical! From the moment my beautiful clients inquired and they mentioned Lavender field. I just knew it’d be one for the books!

While I was in Portland, I was able to meet with this beautiful couple who wanted to celebrated the beauty of miracles and their love through dreamy portraits at a lavender field. We met at Lavender Valley, which is very close to Mount Hood as you can see from this portraits. The background was truly marvelous.

Their love was glowing with joy and pure passion. It was such a blessing to capture these for them. I can tell that their bundle of joy will truly be surrounded by so much light and beauty.

The owners at Lavender Valley were so amazing, seriously this is the first field of Lavender that we got to visit and it was absolutely breathtaking.

Hope that you dear viewer enjoy these as much as we do.

Vasylina | Maternity Session

Capturing the beauty of a miracle is something so special to me. When Vasylina contacted me regarding a maternity session,
she had one request… a horse. When she decided that a after sunrise time would be perfect for her session we worked on all of the details together.

The amazing talented Victoria behind Silk Fairies Designs designed this beautiful maternity gown and a headpiece for this session.

We headed out very early to Cuatro Caminos Rancho in Joliet, one of my favorite locations near Chicago. From the moment Vasylina and her husband arrived till the moment the session was over, they were both so amazing.
She was indeed glowing so beautifully. The morning light was quite unique and soft. I can still remember the golden soft glow on the trees. It was a hot morning but definitely worth it!

It is such a blessing to capture so much beauty. Everything about this session is magical and I truly believe it.
