A Vintage Love story St. James Farm, Chicago photographer / Mikayla + Kyle

Somebody pinch me! I am trying to write the perfect words to explain the overwhelming joy my creative soul feels when looking at these images. But A) I am not a writer B) These two beautiful souls are beyond gorgeous to explain it in a few words. These is real these are my clients, they are in love and beautiful inside & out. Mikayla is an amazing and talented photographer near me and when she contacted me to book a portrait session for herself I was so excited, but then she came back and this time with Kyle (her love). You can imagine oh! the excitement I felt when she mentioned that she wanted a SUNRISE session. The light, the setting, the outfits, everything came together so beautifully and honestly I just couldn’t believe how perfect this session was. The vintage era inspires me so much, in ways I just cannot explain, the romance and magic behind it, I just love to introduce that into my portraits. When my clients are more than willing to make things like this happen, I can just say, my soul, my creative soul smiles.

I hope you enjoy this session as much as I do. Thank you for stopping by.

Freckles & Wilderness – Chicago Fine Art Portraits

I love texture, I can forever talk about how I feel it gives a whole different definition to portraits. At least on my personal view. Wether it’s texture found in nature or texture in fabrics, patterns or our surroundings, I love it all. There is one specific texture and beautiful detail that I focused on these portraits. Can you already tell what “it” is? In case you haven’t, let me help you. They are beautifully and delicately adorning her face. Freckles are simply so intriguing and mysterious. Not to mention the beautiful texture it gives those that have them. I simply love them. So I truly hope these next couple of portraits are of a delight before your eyes.

Our Forever – Dallas Wedding Portraits

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda

I had such and amazing experience at our recent workshop in Dallas, Tx. The models,vendors and the whole team was quite amazing. I am beyond grateful for all these moments through which I am able to meet so many beautiful creative souls.
