Coffee Break


It’s time for a coffee break! Sometimes all we need is a little pick me up especially when you get up early with the family to head on out for photo shoots and a play date afterwards. We found this little gem of a coffee shop in Libertyville and couldn’t have loved it more!


I strongly believe that we all need a break from whatever it is we’re doing. Even though I love what I do for a loving there are times where simply want to unwind. Shooting for 2 or 3 hours can be turing sometimes especially when you have your kids in tow (which we always have!). So we take break in between shoots. And sometimes we grab coffee while our little get something to eat. It works perfect—we all get to relax, what’s not to love?!

We found Hansa Coffee Roasters in Libertyville. Located at 755 N Milwaukee Ave it really is a gem! The coffee is phenomenal and the atmosphere was darling! The weather helped too! We have 84 degrees which was perfect!

How was your weekend?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by & have a great week!!

    You look stunning! And I agree about taking a coffee break. My weekend was pretty good. Busy but good. Reika, my puppy, got her first title this weekend so that was exciting! I hope yours was good as well!

    Dear V., I also believe that a break is so good! So needed, in fact! I have just arrived from a trip (so I should feel good), but I am having some problems with my family, or what remains, and that is tearing me apart. I loved t read your post, to remind me that I do need a break. Thank you, dear V.! I You really look so beautiful, I loved your dress and your lovely boots! Hope you have a lovely day! Hugs and kisses!
