Photography is a joy for me because of people and moments like these. These two braved the wind and cold this weekend for their engagement photos, and their smiles were contagious! Congrats on your engagement, Terka and Vojta!
This is the autumn that keeps extending and bringing warm light and delightful crisp afternoons. Some of us may be longing for snow soon, but until then, I am grateful for the chance to have a few last photo sessions this fall. This family brought so much joy to an otherwise regular Thursday!
Logan came into the city with his family for senior photos, and it could not have been a better day for exploring Chicago. Congratulations on graduating soon, Logan!
I had the privilege of photographing this gifted artist (and one of the photos is now her latest album cover - scroll down to find it)! Gabes is a dear friend of mine, and her music is not only beautiful, but carries such a message of hope too.
If you'd like to support her and her journey not only as a musician, but as a student on her way to a master's degree, click on the link below:
Lastly, here is Gabes' album cover! Photography by Clairelyseen, design by Faith Amargo.
If you've never been to a 1st Birthday party and seen a cake smash, then you have something pretty great to look forward to. Until then, you can delight in this little one's reaction to cake being put right in front of him. He had me smiling the whole time.
After a detour through the streets of Chicago, we finally found the spots we were looking for and I followed along happily with my camera as Josh and Julia enjoyed a leisurely afternoon together of ice-cream, a walk in the park, and exploring their dream neighborhood. Photos are not just about preserving a unique season of life, for they're also about creating memories too; and this day was full of doing just that.
