Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


Cassie Bonga {Senior}

Such a delightful senior portrait session for Cassie! One of the most beautiful fall days in Chicago and we honestly had the best time! Natural beauty.

I was so honored to work with such a kind-hearted young man while on my quick trip to California. Thankful that God continues to bring such amazing people on my path…

I had such a fun and relaxing afternoon with Daniel at The Morton Arboretum. What a kind young man. Excited for your future, Daniel!


Heather Bonga {Senior}

This was technically Heather’s senior photo session, but her boyfriend, Tommy, came along and I ended up with a bunch of sweet photos of the two of them! Wasn’t sure how I was going to categorize the album, but decided not to stress myself out at all and make it one big CELEBRATION! How about if we celebrate Heather graduating from high school? Celebrating the beautiful weather that is finally here at The Morton Arboretum?! And last but not least, celebrating Love and Friendship. Yeah, I’m totally okay with all that! :)
