Adri & Mitch | Chicago Studio Maternity Session

September 23, 2022


If you recognize these two, it’s because there are photos of them from their wedding and engagement plastered all over my website. Adriana and Mitch were one of my 2020 clients, and IYKYK how hard that year was for wedding vendors and couples, so their intimate backyard wedding at Mitchell’s parent’s home holds a special place in my heart. I was so, so thrilled when Adri reached out in the summer wanting to schedule a studio maternity session. Studio sessions have been the absolute viiiiibe for my maternity session clients this year and I have absolutely loved photographing all of these beautiful, creative, empowered mommas during their session. Adriana is absolutely glowing and it was such a joy to photograph her and Mitch! Scroll to see some of my favorites from their session.

hi, i'm ARIELLE.

You can usually find me home with my golden retriever or day dreaming of my next trip to Italy.

I am a firm believer in living life with purpose and never missing the opportunity to experience something new. The Meyers-Briggs test says I am an INFJ with ESFJ qualities (an introverted extrovert, IYKYK), and my friends say I am the person they come to when they need comfort, advice, or fresh baked goods. I consider myself an empath, so special moments you share with your loved ones will likely get me all teary eyed and sentimental. I am not here to pretend life is picture perfect, but to capture genuine emotion and create timeless pieces of art to decorate your home. I’m constantly striving for perfection, but have a calming personality and am relatively easy going. 

When the camera is not around my neck, I am a big home body. I love hanging on the couch with my dog, making pasta, breads and desserts from scratch, squatting 400+ pounds in the gym, or plotting my next trip outside of the US. As a direct descendant of Italian immigrants, I feel most at home in Italy (and speak a bit of Italian, too.)



Arielle has photographed over 150 weddings across 12 states, 5 countries, and 3 continents. While her heart beats for coastal and countryside Italian weddings, she is willing to travel anywhere and everywhere to document your day.
