We had the pleasure of photographing Maria and Jorge's engagement session at Lilacia Park in Lombard, IL. We first met Maria and Jorge a few years ago at her daughter's wedding. It was a delight to reconnect and be chosen to capture this special moment as they prepare for their own wedding.


Lilacia Park was the perfect setting for the engagement photos. The park was alive with vibrant colors and a variety of blooming flowers, creating a picturesque summer backdrop. Despite the heat of the day, the weather cooled off just in time for our session, making it comfortable for everyone.


Maria and Jorge's love truly stood out against the stunning scenery. Their joy and excitement were contagious, and it was a pleasure to witness their connection. The combination of their happiness and the beautiful surroundings made for some truly magical photos.


We are thrilled to be a part of Maria and Jorge's journey and can't wait to capture their big day. The engagement session was just a glimpse of the love and happiness that will undoubtedly fill their wedding day.

We had the pleasure of meeting Jackie and Michael a few months ago when they shared their heartfelt journey to this moment with us. Their story is one of resilience, hope, and immense love. Eiza, their beautiful baby girl, is a rainbow baby—a miracle that came after a storm of loss and heartache. Her name, Eiza, means "God is my oath" or "promise of God," which is a fitting tribute to the faith and hope Jackie and Michael held onto through their difficult journey.


Jackie and Michael's path to parenthood was filled with challenges and loss. They experienced the heartbreak of losing several babies along the way. To honor their baby angels, they planted a rose garden, with each rose representing a precious life that touched their hearts. This beautiful tribute is a testament to their enduring love and remembrance.


Given the significance of their journey, it was only natural for Jackie and Michael to choose an outdoor session to celebrate Eiza's arrival. The lush garden setting provided a serene and beautiful backdrop, symbolizing the new life and hope that Eiza brings to their family.


During the session, we had the joy of meeting Eiza's older brother, Logan, and her loving grandparents. The entire family radiated happiness and love, making it a truly special day. Logan was so excited to pose with his new baby sister, and the grandparents' pride was evident in every smile.


Faith has been a cornerstone for Jackie and Michael throughout their journey, and it was wonderful to see their faith rewarded with the blessing of Eiza. We are overjoyed for them and grateful to witness their family grow. Their story is a powerful reminder that hope and love can overcome even the toughest challenges.


Congratulations to the Duval family, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of this precious moment. Your strength and love are truly inspiring.

Elliana's Quinceañera was a day filled with joy, love, and beautiful memories. The weather was hot, but a gentle breeze made it more bearable as the festivities began.


Our day started at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Joliet, where Elliana was ready for her special mass. She looked stunning in her beautiful blue dress, a perfect choice for her Quinceañera. The church service was a touching start to the celebration, with family and friends gathered to support Elliana on her special day.


After the mass, we headed to Bird Haven Greenhouse in Joliet for some family portraits and photos with her court of honor. The greenhouse provided a lovely backdrop, and we found a shaded area to keep everyone comfortable in the heat. The family portraits turned out gorgeous, capturing the love and connection between Elliana and her loved ones. We also took some playful photos with Elliana and her court, adding a fun and lighthearted touch to the day.


With the photo session complete, it was time for a quick bite. We headed to McDonald's, where everyone enjoyed some refreshments and relaxed before the next part of the celebration.


The reception took place at Posh Banquets in Joliet, beautifully decorated with blue and gray accents that matched Elliana's dress. Each table had a lovely flower centerpiece, and the napkins and chair bows added an elegant touch to the venue.


The grand vals was a highlight of the evening, with Elliana and her court dancing to "A Dream is A Wish Your Heart Makes." This was followed by the presentation, changing of shoes, and a surprise gift. Elliana then shared a special vals with her dad, and they split the song so her mom could join in for a dance as well. Elliana also included her Baptist godfather, sharing a separate dance with him.


One of the most touching moments was a surprise slideshow prepared by Elliana's mom. The slideshow showcased Elliana's life in photos, bringing smiles and tears to many. After a few heartfelt speeches and a toast, Elliana and her court surprised everyone with a beautifully choreographed dance.


The dance floor was then opened, and everyone joined in, dancing and celebrating late into the night. It was a joyous occasion, filled with laughter, music, and love.


Congratulations, Elliana, on your Quinceañera! It was a day to remember, and we are grateful to have been a part of it.

Before the Quinceañera festivities in Joliet, we had a pre-photo session in Chicago at Olive Milton Park. The park provided a stunning backdrop with parts of the Chicago skyline, beach, and sand all coming together to create picturesque scenery. The sun played peek-a-boo with Elliana, creating beautiful, natural lighting that added a magical touch to the photos. Elliana looked radiant, and the Chicago skyline in the background made the shots even more special.


During our time at the park, we had a unique opportunity to take a few photos with an officer who was on duty. This added a fun and memorable element to the session. The pre-photo session at Olive Milton Park was a perfect start to Elliana's Quinceañera celebrations, capturing her excitement and joy in such a beautiful setting
