Dave & Kerry | Chicago Sunrise Engagement

All righty! Here we go... so many pictures to post from the last few months, it was hard to choose what to share first!

I'll probably mix up older stuff with more recent shoots, so this one is from the summer. My cousin Kerry got engaged this year, and we were able to meet up for sunrise engagement pictures in the city.

I really like it when people are crazy enough to do this. :-)

Introducing The Script Market

Hello, friends. It's been a while. If you're still here, thanks for hanging with me. :-) I promise I have a bunch of photos piled up from the summer and fall to share with you all!

Today, though, I want to tell you about my newest venture: The Script Market.
I have always had a love for typography and calligraphy. When I was younger I attended a large scale tea party and we all had the loveliest scripted place cards. That's when I remember realizing that someone had written them by hand - that the style of calligraphy (pointed pen) could actually be achieved by hand. I'm not sure why it hadn't occurred to me before then, but there you have it. :-) Since then it was a dream in the back of my mind to learn to do it.

Fast forward many years and I met Kim from The Constant Scribe. Though she doesn't teach lessons anymore, I loved it so much that she made an exception and agreed to teach me. I had found my art. I have done drawing and painting over the years and enjoyed them, but this was love.

I have used it in a purely personal capacity, but I have finally decided to branch out a bit and started a little shop. I have cards, digital wallpapers for your phone, personalized gift tags (just in time for all that gift giving!), and other pretty items. My simple goal is to make the little things more beautiful. A friend of mine once saved a ziploc baggie that I'd labeled and kept washing it and reusing it - so I thought about selling calligraphed plastic bags but I haven't gone quite that far yet. ;-)

I would love if you would check out my shop, add it to your favorites if you're on Etsy, and follow along on Instagram (updated most regularly) and Facebook!

And stay tuned for some pictures coming your way... really. ;-)

Emily | Headshots

I forgot that I hadn't blogged these images from earlier this year! Emily needed some new professional headshots and I'm always happy to have her pretty face in front of my camera. :-) We shot at a guest house that her friends own and the light was perfect!!

Courtney | Senior Portraits

There are some people you just know are going to be fabulous. I had seen Courtney around on social media a little bit through mutual friends, so when her mom contacted me to do her senior pictures, I jumped on it. :-) My premonition was correct - Courtney was loads of fun and a trooper when what should have been a warm summer day ended up being pretty chilly! Her contagious laugh and that beautiful red hair made me a happy camper. Enjoy!

Courtney is also an AMAZING artist!!
Please go check out her work, I'm still trying to get my jaw off the floor.
