Alexis & Travis {Wedding Day}

Alexis and Travis were married at a little chapel on the campus of MacMurray College in Jacksonville IL.  I could tell you a story of great details, of happy people, of a beautiful day, and gorgeous locations – because their wedding day was all of these things.  However I’d rather tell you a story of […]

Jessica Zobrist - Wow what beautiful pictures! I love the yellow… what a pretty punch of color!

Amanda Zika - This is one of those weddings that makes me so sad you didn’t photograph mine 🙁 I really need to renew my vows just so I can have you as my photographer. I know that you feel blessed to shoot a couple this sweet and I hope they realize how fortunate they are to have such an amazing photographer that knows how to Work. It. Out. 😉

P.S. I love her dress!

Emilie & Brandon {Wedding Day}

Emilie & Brandon were married 8.14.10.  A gorgeous summer day that was much looked forward to and celebrated by everyone who knows the couple.  Emilie and Brandon have a special story that makes their love unique.  It’s not a story of clouds parting and rainbows on the day they met, or blissful romance – although […]

Transitioning

I’m not sure if it is the chill to the air blowing through my window, or the end of a chapter that the Labor Day holiday seems to bring, but it feels like hot days of summer are diminishing and fall is slowly billowing in.  I look at the seasons in hindsight as chapters and […]

Jenny Hodges - I love your Hipstamatic prints & this post. Such touching words b/c yes, life is very short & can end in an instant when we least expect it. Sometimes we have to stop & just soak everything in, even if it means putting editing on hold to spend a few extra minutes with your loved ones. The photos will always be there, but quality time with loved ones will not.

T Bran - <3

Ashley Gwin - Beautiful 🙂

Sherree Schneider - You made me look at the upcoming fall and winter season in a whole new light. I usually start dreading this time of year, knowing the cold weather is right around the corner, but now…somehow, it doesn’t seem as dismissal to me. Beautifully written Karin…I love that…TRANSITION!

Jenny Conrad - Aww. Now I feel bad about hating layers. I do love the Fall, just not my minimal Fall/Winter wardrobe. Thanks for the perspective.

Amanda Zika - Thank you for bringing a pregnant gal to tears. Seriously, a great post. What a great way to reflect on the past, present and future. I often regret the time I spend away from my kids and family and know that I must change that. I will start today! Mwah!

Dawn Devall - You are a beautiful person Karin, inside and out! You have a heart of gold and I am proud to call you a friend:) PS, is there anything you aren’t good at? My lord, you need to write in your spare time! lol

Boud-i-licious

boudoir |ˈboōˌdwär|   a woman’s bedroom or private room. So what in the heck are boudoir photos?  Photos of your bedroom?  Not quite.  This type of photography in my definition is super sexy shots of a bride to be, or a wife, or a female of any age who wants to document how hot they are at a particular […]
