Pedar + Meredith are getting married later this fall so we met up to do their engagement session before they head out west for work this summer. They are both actors so they are certainly not camera shy, but instead full of personality and so much f-u-n! We had a really good time running around a parking garage on a warm evening before a huge storm hit. I’m so looking forward to shooting them again this fall. How adorable are they? !

Spring has finally arrived (and is here to stay!) in the midwest, so my days have been a buzz with lifestyle sessions. I met up with the Charpie family on a perfectly overcast afternoon. Last time I photographed them they were a family of three so it was a joy to meet the newest member (who’s already three) and get to photograph them again.

For all things wrong with social media, it is quickly redeemed by being able to connect with people all over the world and develop friendships. Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know a handful of true gems that started out as Instagram faces only to turn into to real life meet up’s and boom! Friendships formed.

These two babes are such an example. Dee is all the way from Australia, and Lex only from a few hours east of where I live. It just so happened that after following one another for quite some time, Dee mentioned she was making her way to the States and driving through our city on her way to Chicago with her friend Lex (who she also met via Instagram I believe). So another friend and I spent the afternoon laughing and chatting and forming a real friendship with these two who we’d only seen via Instagram prior to that. We took them all around town and snapped a few photos at the end of our time together.
