As I'm headed out to shoot a new #HighSchoolSenior client, I'm always grateful for the ones who have helped me realized why I love shooting seniors to begin with! Here's my #SaturdaySenior Chole from a few years back. Shot in downtown Elgin a block from what would be my now dream studio in Elgin. Sometimes we do need these little reminders like this to know... God really did have a plan. #dream2bephotography

Did you know that ever single present moment has its own purpose? Your life matters whether you are a heart surgeon performing open heart surgery or someone who is selling hot dogs out of a cart in the city. Every opportunity we are given in this world to breathe is full of the potential to brighten, encourage, help, heal, listen, or just provide company to another human being. Today I choose to keep this at the forefront of my mind. I have spent entirely too much time focusing on the negatives. Maybe others can relate. What I know and will continue to remind myself is my  life matters whether I'm photographing a paid client or a butterfly on a leaf. I'm a good mother whether or not I cook every single day or allow cereal to replace a few meals in the hopes to just get a break. I am a good friend even if the only thing I can offer is my prayers instead of advice. I am worthy because God says I am. Period. #happysaturday

Love working with this glamour girl. @laur_elyse #dream2bephotography
Because he's the only one who really knows me and loves me for it all anyway. The only one that sees me in a light bright enough that even  I can see it in the photos he takes of me. Thanks to my best friend and the love of my life for continually picking me up when I keep falling, gluing the pieces back when I crack, and tirelessly reminding me of the real truth of who I am and who God created me to be. #newday

Good Morning!!! Isn't she gorgeous?!? Here's to finding a backdrop anywhere. I shot this in front of my favorite Elgin store, The Soulful Sparrow. It's such a great place for artistic and unique clothing, jewelry, and gifts. On Friday, May 6 @5Pm I will be hanging with the sweet ladies of Soulful Sparrow as well as displaying some of my favorite storytelling photographs that represent my love and inspiration of vintage and fairytales. I'm so excited to be part of this artistic community.

For years I have never witnessed that first moment when someone sees themselves or their child in a photo I took. Technology has helped immensely as a growing photographer who just last year did everything from a garage studio and home office. I would just release the gallery online in hopes to hear how a person felt about the images, but in reality I never really truly knew because I wasn't there with them. Today, I have the opportunity with my new Elgin studio to really connect with my clients. Last night, I had the chance to experience a family seeing her senior pictures like I had never before. It was a beautiful moment for them and it really solidifies why connecting personally with each and every client means the world to me.I cannot express enough how much love and hard work goes into each clients sets, and yesterday's viewing session proved to me that what I do has been worth the  journey it has taken me on. Thank you Michelle and Molly for choosing me and allowing me to actually see that what I do really does invoke the same emotions in others as it does for myself. And I'm not going to lie, in a world of really amazingly talented people with gifts of all sorts, it's nice to see that what I do - really does matter too. Thank you! ❤️#dream2bephotography #highschoolseniorphotography

Yesterday's post had some technical difficulties so until I figure that out... I wanted to post one more of my latest seniors- sweet Paige. Blog soon!!! #dream2bephotography #highschoolseniorphotography #cityofelgin
It didn't matter how much she tried, how much she gave, what she looked liked, how much talent she embodied, or how good of a friend she could be, in the end it didn't matter to anyone. But what mattered to her, was that she knew she mattered. She knew she mattered enough to herself to say I'd rather go it alone then pretend to be someone she isn't. She became strong enough to walk away and saw hope in the change and future that awaited her on the other side. - Chantel Ferraro "My Heart Sees Hope" #myheart #overcomer #myheartseeshope

Sometimes the hardest thing to do in a situation is to not say anything at all. It's especially hard when we feel the need to defend ourselves to people who really do not understand - and maybe not even care at all. This world will draw their own opinions, make judgments based on whatever they believe the know - but one thing I have learned is, the truth will always find its way. Until then, we must keep going, just be and allow karma to handle the rest. #dream2bephotography #myheartseeshope

It's been a loooong time since I got a subject this young in my studio. And his daddy wanted to step out of the shot ... But I saw it differently. 😉#BretzNewbornSession #dream2bephotography
