Holiday Shoot

Momoko fritz 38.jpg

This year I decided to do a last minute Holiday pop-up shoot. 2018 has been a trying year for me and I put my obligations and communications for my business as a low priority. Sometimes you have years where you give yourself permission to not show up, but then there’s always consequences to actions like these. I wasn’t entirely sure how I wanted to see my business grow and what I saw as a priorities, but then I realigned myself and came back to what I love, hence the last minute Holiday shoot. I’m so glad I did this, because everything I do for my clients and for my business is an opportunity to grow, plus I really enjoyed it! I’m looking forward to the New Year for numerical fresh starts, but I’ve discovered that a new year is not incentive to stretch myself, I started this process this Fall already. If you have any goals you want to say out loud, put them in my comments! Sometimes telling the world your intentions forces your hand!

Chicago is a great place to photograph families outdoors due to the many amazing locations at our doorstep. The first year I moved here I noticed the unique architecture of both downtown and in the neighborhoods. I fell in love with the grey stone residential buildings with their stoops and old doors and the eclectic mix of soaring sky scrapers. Often my clients request spots where the city can be the backdrop from both afar and close up. But I am thrilled when I can take a shot in the neighborhoods and show off that moment of your lives in our great city.

Kris + Lisa

At the stunning location of the Armour House in Lake Forest, Illinois, Kris and Lisa had a sweet, intimate wedding. It rained all day and very hard and when we needed it to stop for family photos and couples photos, it stopped. Gizmo, the couple's adorable dog joined the wedding party and Kris impressively took care of most of the coordination of the wedding. Everything turned out beautifully and they ended their day by leaving in a classic car. What a stunningl and wonderful couple!

Adriana + Abraham

These two are stunning people and I got to photograph them in stunning locations. I felt like I saw the best of Mexico in the shortest amount of time. I was honored to photograph Adriana and Abraham's wedding in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Before that I was able to have a fantastic tour of Mexico City with my dear friend where we ate at the famous, Pujol. So when I arrived to San Miguel it felt like going from the new world to the old and we happened to be there when the celebration of San Miguel was commencing so it felt truly special being here. I was completely charmed by this city and to add to the fairy dust sprinkled over this wedding, the lovely couple decide to get married at a vineyard/resort that has fields of lavendar, olive trees and of course, grapes. Adriana stayed at the famous Rosewood hotel and it was like a hidden oasis from the city, which is already an oasis. Everything was so lovely and this is my first Mexican wedding so I wasn't prepared for the 6:30 am party end time.The bride performed a flamenco dance as a surprise to her new husband and of course, there as lots and lots of dancing. I was able to skirt away at 2:30, but this was an amazing wedding that charmed me from the get-go.
