I was beyond honored to be asked to do this maternity shoot this weekend. This couple right here mean the world to me. I can't wait to meet Baby Williams in just a couple of weeks!
Photographing these two is such a perfect way to start out my Labor Day! There will be more to come from this set.
Have a great Labor Day everyone!
The bond between two brothers is simply magical. I had the chance to photograph an incredible family celebrating their 4th of July weekend. Although the set involved an extended family who was a lot of fun to work with, I absolutely could not get enough of these two brothers and wanted to focus most of this post on them.
Friday nights, depending on your likes and dislikes could be spent in a wide variety of ways. People enjoy going to the movies. People enjoy going out to a bar and connecting with friends. Some people enjoy being active and going to the gym. And some prefer to just sit back and relax with a good book. I myself play in a men's soccer league here in the suburbs on Friday nights. But last week, I skipped my game, and instead chose to spend it with two of my closest friends. I was lucky enough to be invited out to Kitchen Chicago to photograph My Mighty Meals as they worked throughout the night.
My Mighty Meals is the brainchild of a lifelong friend of mine Kris Davia. He, alongside his incredible fiance Nora, have spent years meticulously growing this company to what it has become today. What is it that they do? Here's Kris himself to explain My Mighty Meals:
Twice a week, both Kris and Nora head to Kitchen Chicago, where they spend most of their entire night cooking up a storm. The hours they worked on the Friday I was there was from 6 pm till well past 2 in the morning. Each meal carefully thought out with the specific client in mind. Whether it's an individual trying to lose weight or quite possibly a fellow athlete trying to gain muscle mass, these two will put a plan to work for you. And no, this isn't about tiny portions of food that lack any type of flavor. Instead, these meals taste like they have come straight out of your mom's kitchen. In fact, as I'm typing this, I'm currently devouring and quite honestly drooling over the pork tacos pictured here. Yeah I know it's almost midnight, don't judge me!
But let's be honest, I really shouldn't be the only one who gets to drool over this food. So here are some more shots of other dishes they were working hard to prepare on Friday night.

I was so happy to be able to photograph this incredible family again this fall. I've known Ryan since we were little kids, and to see the amount of happiness and love shared between him and Patti with their three beautiful children just make me so happy. I can't believe how quickly they are all grown up, and to be able to witness their personalities through the lens of my camera is truly a blessing.
I've had the pleasure of knowing Erica for a long time and one thing has always been very evident, her love and admiration for Andy. I had the unfortunate pleasure of sitting near Erica at work, and had to listen to months of her trying to figure out when Andy was going to pop the question. Thankfully, for all parties involved, Andy proposed to Erica and we get to see this great couple grow old together. I wish nothing but happiness for years to come to this amazing couple.
