Jaime + Marisa ~ Chicago Maternity Photography

Jaime is one of mine and James’ closest friends here in Chicago, so I was honored when he asked me to document this beautiful time in his life for him! He’s the kind of friend that shows up at 3am to help get your couch into your new apartment when you realize there is no way the two of you can do it alone, and you are completely spent from moving yourselves for the past 12+ hours! He’s the kind of friend that comes over on a moments notice to help jump your car so you can get it to the auto shop without calling a tow truck. Basically, Jaime is good people. Really really good people. 🙂

So, naturally we are over-the-moon happy for him that he has found so much love and joy with the absolutely beautiful & sweet, Marisa! These two are welcoming their little one into the world any day now – and their excitement and love is easy for anyone around them to see.

They joined me along with Marisa’s beautiful children for a family/maternity session at sunset – and the light did not disappoint! Here are some of my favorites from their session! So much love in this family – you can’t help but smile!




There’s nothing like seeing your friends happy!!! Love Love Love. 🙂
