Returning to her hometown of Lake Forest to get married, Peggy and Kevin knocked it out of the park with their spectacular summer wedding. Every detail carried their design sense of simple, classic elegance and the entire event was just stunning.

But the most stunning? Peggy & Kevin smiling and laughing throughout their entire wedding day. Their warmth and contagious happiness filled the room, and the honor of photographing their wedding day was truly a joy.

The custom designed invitation suite from Charm Studio set the stage for Peggy & Kevin’s beautiful summer wedding.

The beautiful Knollwood Club created a picture-perfect scene for their wedding reception. Guests enjoyed cocktails on the patio overlooking the golf course, dined in the beautiful club and then danced the night away under a chandelier lit white tent.

Peggy and Kevin, I loved your wedding from beginning to end! Thank you for having me as your wedding photographer, it was such a pleasure. I wish you much peace, love and happiness in your life together. xoxo, tracy

We so lucked out with the weather for this mid-November photoshoot. Four year old Rocco made me work for it, but I speak four year old so we had a blast. I did a lot of moo-ing, toot-ing and singing the Paw Patrol theme song to get the shots. And I love them.

This is Charlie, and I’ve captured him since he was about 9 months old. I was just getting started in my professional photography career and his mother let me use him as a little model to practice and build my portfolio. Every year when I capture him, I am reminded how far I’ve come in my art and my business. And how quickly kids grow up.

An Evasnton family session in honor of Scott’s 5th birthday

This one is special, I finally got my brother’s family formally in front of my lens again. It had been ages since we did an official family session. The last time the kids had missing teeth, and now somehow they are teenagers…

I first met sweet Sophia when she was 10 days old. And here I got to capture not only her holiday card photos, but also her announcement to the world that is soon to be a big sister.
