While I was in Chicago shooting Laurel and Bob's wedding, I was so happy to be able to photograph little Anthony! I photographed the wedding of Anthony's parents, Andrea and Kevin, two years ago, and it was so great to get to spend some time catching up with them!

Look at that expression! He's so cute!

Anthony, Attorney at Law.

I was so glad we still had beautiful leaf coverage!

Isn't Andrea beautiful?!

And finally, the little school boy :)


Laurel and Bob are Married!

Laurel and Bob were married this past weekend in Chicago! It was a beautiful wedding, and I was so glad to get to make the trip out there to be a part of it!

Laurel looked amazing! Truly old Hollywood glam!

Soooo beautiful!

Saint Clement Church in Lincoln Park is pretty spectacular!

I just love this one of Laurel during the ceremony :)

We had some fun with the wedding party photos!

Lincoln Park has such an amazing view of the Chicago skyline!

Pretty reception details at Salvatores!

And to end, something warm and cozy :)

Congratulations Laurel and Bob! And Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! :)


Laura and Phil are Engaged!

Laura and Phil will be getting married next May! Since Laura proposed to Phil with a guitar, we thought it would be fitting to include a guitar in their session! :)

I love these! So cozy and sweet!

The one on the right might be my favorite :)

Kellie and Brad's Maternity Session!

I always think pregnancy is beautiful, but Kellie makes it look gorgeous, doesn't she?! :) Thanks so much, Kellie and Brad for letting me into your beautiful home and allowing me to capture this amazing time in your life. And now, the photos...

Love these. Their first baby stands proud in front of her family!

Sooo pretty.

The one on the left might be my favorite. It turned out exactly as I wanted. I would have loved a photo like this of my mother, and I hope some day your little girl cherishes it.

Lamb kisses!



Portrait Party Preview!

I held my first ever Nicole Ladonne Photography Portrait Party this weekend! It was quite a success- thanks so much to everyone who came out for it!

Here's a preview for you all!

First up, Miss Beatrice and family!

What kid doesn't like to play monkey with mom and dad! :)

Can't believe how grown up Bea is getting!

Next up, Katie and Patrick!

I love this one! So cute and cuddly!

Katie- beautiful girl, and a wonderful friend of mine!

Such a great model, isn't she?! :)

Love it!

You may remember these next two! I photographed Melinda and Jason's wedding last year!

Proud of her baby bump! She's still so tiny! :)

And now, the Radloff family! Laura and Phil, on the left, are new wedding clients of mine! I'll actually be shooting their engagement session tomorrow!

Who's in charge here? ;)

And last, but certainly not least, Stephanie, Coen, Ashley and Catherine!

Stephanie and Coen are very special clients of mine. Not only did I shoot Stephanie, and her husband Chad's wedding, but I did little Coen's photos in the hospital the day after he was born!

What a handsome little guy!!!

Much love and gratitude to all of my clients, and to my friend Allison, and my Momma for helping out while I was shooting on Saturday! Can't wait to do this again in the Spring! :)
