Kitty cats

I always have to do a few of the cats while I'm visiting.

My good friend Skye brought her adorable dog, Fenway, to visit for the afternoon.

She kept crawling toward the camera with excitement

She was fascinated by mom's horses!

She wanted so badly to be friends with everybody!

My friend Hilary happened to be visiting her parents at the same time I was back home, so it was awesome to see her!

Stacey and Dan's Wedding

Stacey and Dan were lucky enough to have their wedding during the flooding of Chicago earlier this month... but they didn't let that get them down! We just altered our schedule a bit and they were fine. They were so cute together, I barely had to direct them at all during portraits. So in love, so adorable, and so easy to photograph!

Our outdoor photo shoot! The best man nicely agreed to come with us and shield my camera from the rain.

The reception was held at Mrs. Murphy's & Sons Irish Bistro which had lots of nice decor to play with.

Mmmm...tasty cake

Stacey, her sister, and her sister's adorable little daughter

The slideshow!


The final family member portrait, my sister Janna!

She's quite the ham for the camera

Paulina and Leo's wedding

What a fun wedding! I had a great time with Paulina and Leo and all their families and friends. This was my first experience at a Greek Orthodox ceremony: it was beautiful!

Leo's parents had an awesome movie theater in their basement complete with little stars in the ceiling.

The ring bearer

I loved the ties for the groomsmen

Gorgeous Paulina, just moments before the ceremony

I was shaking rice out of my hair for the day :)

They hired an entertainer for dinner, who loved to bring guests to the center of the floor for costumes, embarrassment, and fun

I love Greek dances!

And the slideshow!
