Erin and I worked together in a different life when I still lived in Chicago. We've kept in vague touch over the years (social media is good for something), but I was overwhelmed with honor when she asked if I'd shoot a maternity/intimate session with her and her husband, Xian in their Chicago neighborhood. Erin works at a school that was literally right around the corner, so it was awesome to enjoy a steamy Chicago night and fit in some shots of a place she holds very dear. It was a lovely evening and I felt so grateful to have spent this time with these two as they prepare for their next step in life. Congratulations, Erin and Xian--you have done so much and have so much to look forward to as well!
