Congratulations to my sister and her baby daddy! Everyone is doing well and finding the groove of being new parents. Alice is a precious little milk-mouth fuss face angel, she is melting my cold cold robot heart on a daily basis. Alice Beverly // Born 5:53am May 13, 2014 // 6 lbs 3 oz // 19 inches

Brielle’s First Birthday // Buffalo Grove, IL
I had the honor of photographing Brielle and her family for her first birthday. Spending time in her home allowed me to capture the many faces and moods of a one year old in her natural environment- home. Brielle is a gorgeous baby, and she will have these images to look back on one day to see her special baby blanket, the excitement of a new toy, the kitchen of her childhood home, and the deep love of her parents.

Erin and Andrew’s Baby Shower // Riverwoods, IL
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for my Kid Sister and her Baby Daddy. The other hostesses and I had a great time getting to know each other, and Baby Daddy’s family is THE BEST. I am so happy for Erin and my future niece or nephew, I will love them the most if they are born on June 7, everyone please send due date vibes towards that day so the baby is born on Aunt Suzy, Grandma Emmie, and my birthday!

El Cabo San Juan del Guia // Tayrona National Park, Colombia
From Bogota we flew to Santa Marta, then took 3 local busses and donkeys through a jungle to the first campsite near the Entrada El Zaino and the Arrecifes beach area. We camped, ate fish and arepas, and drank out of coconuts. I listened to my friends and wore sunscreen and a long sleeved shirt and did not get horribly scorched by the Caribbean sun. There was several giant yellow spiders in the cleanest campground bathroom ever that were fairly terrifying, but the staff assured us “no son peligrosas”. Tayrona was beautiful and I would love to return some day. El Cabo San Juan del Guia // Tayrona National Park, Colombia
