THE M FAMILY | Chicago Lifestyle Photographer

I have photographed this absolutely adorable family several times over the past SIX years and every time I have more fun! This time I met them on their family trip to Chicago for a little adventure. It was freezing cold, but these amazing kids made the most out of it. We spent a couple of hours adventuring around the city, and ended their trip with a whole bunch of jumping on the hotel bed (an obligatory part of any family vacation).

I adore Chicago, and I can’t wait to go back.

WEST COAST | wppi + san francisco

Emma, Jennie and I headed to Las Vegas for WPPI (a photographers conference/expo) at the beginning of March. We stayed in Downtown Vegas and spent our days browsing the floors of the expo.   I made a pretty exciting purchase (announcement coming soon) and spent hours looking at new products to streamline my business, and to offer to our clients.  It was so cool to be surrounded by so many people in the business, and I can’t wait to do it again next year!   After nerding out we rented a convertible and adventured around Vegas. We were lucky enough to be joined by one of our favorite Pittsburgh planners, Melissa of Devoted to You for our adventure to Red Rock Canyon.

After Vegas we tacked on a few days in San Francisco and did all the fun tourist stuff you have to do on your first trip to any city.  Anyone who wants to bring me back to San Fran for a shoot will be my new best friend!
