"In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony".

- Eva Burrows


  1. Love these pictures! Looking at them makes me so excited to move back to Chicago!!

  2. love all of these, just simply beautiful.

  3. What a beautiful day and absolutely dreamy photos!!

  4. Question (if I may): Do you shoot and publish raw photos? I love your photography style so much, it's so simple and focused and everything is so perfectly framed. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
    I made a commitment to finally figure out how to use my wonderful beasty camera this year, poor thing is probably feeling abused by me ha.

  5. looks like a great day :) that little coffee spot looks like HEAVEN

  6. I know where you were! Julius Meinl!

    Have you ever gone to Southport Grocery and Cafe? The reason I ask is because I was just there on Sunday and we passed a Julius Meinl while we were walking around Southport Ave. Anyway, you should try it - the cupcakes are heavenly! And so are the bread pudding pancakes! And the hash!

    Beautiful pictures :) beautiful baby!

  7. @carissa - I almost always shoot raw. And don't be afraid of your manual setting on the camera! Possibilities are endless, just experiment! :)
    @becka - it really was heaven!
    @olivia - thank you!
    @mrsroberts - close! They served Julius Meinl at the cafe we were at but it actually wasn't a JM restaurant, I heard their food is good too!

  8. you take really stunning Pictures.just discovered your blog and I love it. I will come back
