Assateague island is a 37 mile long barrier island off the coast of Delmarva. Half the island is Maryland and the other half is Virginia. Assateague Island is a nation park offering campsites for visitors who want to stay the night. The most amazing part of Assateague are the 150 wild horses that roam the beaches and campsites. Horses travel in bands basking in the sun and living off the land. Images below are captured on an Iphone 6s, Kodak Cube and edited in Lightroom.
This weekend is Jaxon first birthday party! This shoot captured the first time he has ever tasted cake! He was hesitant at first, but once he tasted the frosting he was totally into it! I cant get over that baby bowler hat, and what a ham! Happy Birthday Jaxon!

How lucky the Size family was to have their Holiday photo session land on Chicago's first snowfall of the year! The falling snow at the Wilder Mansion made for a beautiful backdrop! The Mansion and its estate are located in Elmhurst, Illinois and were developed in 1868. The Wilder included spacious gardens covered in fresh snow, a beautiful staircase and an indoor botanic garden. The Size family's Christmas cards are going to look very festive this year!
The Luba's Family photos were shot in their cozy home and beautiful backyard in Roselle Illinois. This growing family is excited to celebrate their youngest grandchild Kennedy's, first Christmas!
Chicago couple Pam and Reid chose one of the most unique venues for their engagement session, Emporium Arcade! Reid even showed up in his Pac Man suite! While photographing the couple couldn't resist a few games and some laughs in the lounge. After the arcade fun we headed down to the Chicago River Walk for some romantic river views.
Cameron's first birthday was celebrated at Bristol Oaks Golf Club and Banquets in Bristol Wisconsin. Family portraits were taken on the greens and followed with a sports themed birthday party!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! To me it's a kick off to the Holidays, and I love seeing all of the little kids excited and dresses up.
