The Stevison Family

I recently met the Stevison Family for the first time on a sunny Saturday morning. You see, little A is turning one soon and they wanted to document this time in their lives. We met at their place before heading over to Humboldt Park and I loved it all! 

Take a look!

Cheers to a thousand more adventures, little A. Have the best first birthday!

Cian is one!

I have photographed this family a bunch throughout the years and even though I say this every time, I really have loved following along with them as they grow...

It is always so great to see them and this time I got to photograph their youngest guy in Chicago's Millennium Park. This little handsome man had just turned one, so of course we had to pull out the letters so he could match his older brother's one year session from a couple of year's ago.

Take a look!

The Jansson's new addition!

I have known Jamie for quite awhile from our previous lives, back when we were both full time graphic designers. I still give her credit for introducing me to my husband and nearly three years ago, I photographed their amazing wedding, which continues to be one of my favorites! Now their family of two has become a family of three and I couldn't be more excited for them on their newest (and littlest) adventure. This little lady was eleven days young when I met her.

Take a look!

Congrats on your latest adventure, you two.

Kat and Greg are married!

These two exchanged vows two weeks ago and were surrounded by their closest loved ones. The civil ceremony was at Chicago Cultural Center's GAR Hall and since they are having a party in New Orleans soon, we only took a little time for portraits around the venue. I had so much fun getting to know these two and had a blast working with them. Congrats, you two!

Then it was time a quick ceremony in one of the most beautiful rooms in all of the cultural center.

Thanks for letting me photograph your day, you guys! Enjoy New Orleans.

Personal post: Palm Springs and beyond!

My husband and I were in need of some change of scenery last month, so we booked a semi-last minute flight to Palm Springs. We only a long weekend there, but it turned out to be just what we needed. We spent time by the pool, in the pool, riding bicycles, drinking cocktails and hiking in some pretty amazing places. I highly recommend it!

After a morning of eating, biking and exploring, it was time for the pool. Of course, our hotel had an amazing pool, but I just had to hit up the ACE. I had to see it and it delivered.

The next morning, we found ourselves back at the ACE. This time it was eating at King's Highway before heading to Joshua Tree. I highly recommend it.

Becca Heuer Photography at Indie Wed

Four years ago, I attended my first Indie Wed to help my friend. I attended last year as a bride and this year I returned with Becca Heuer Photography! It was a wonderful  experience and I loved chatting with so many couples about their weddings.

My booth featured flowers from Fleur, a lay-flat album printed at Artifact Uprising, a slideshow of my faves throughout the years and the most supportive husband. I am beyond thankful to all of the couples I met at my first Indie Wed. What a day it was! I am beyond thankful.

2015: My year-in review

It is that time of year where everyone takes a moment to reflect on the past year and I am no different. 

2015 was interesting. Becca Heuer Photography was named one of the 22 best photographers in Chicago, via What?! It was the year I got married to my best friend of eleven years and it was a year filled with immense personal and professional growth. It was the year I finally updated my website and blog. Thank goodness! I took on less weddings to make time to plan my own—which I did—yet somehow packed in more family and love sessions. All in all, it was a pretty amazing year and I am thankful for all of the couples and families that trusted Becca Heuer Photography to document it all. It is no light task, but I am up for it and am forever grateful. 

I have also been ramping up for what is looking like one of my best years yet. I'll be at IndieWed in February and have a few other things up my sleeve. I have to say, 2016 is looking pretty exciting with weddings on the East coast and several amazing weddings in the Chicagoland area. Yay!

Now, here are a few of my favorites from 2015. Enjoy.
