I’m so excited to be photographing this couple’s baby girl today in the studio! We’ve been waiting for her and she’s finally here!!!! I went to the hospital and took a few photos on her second day in this world – look at how mom and dad are looking at her, I love it!!! Now it’s time for the real photo session in the studio, and I can’t wait!! I mean seriously, could this family be anymore gorgeous? Mom is just stunning and Dad hasn’t stopped smiling

What to Wear Wednesday – Chicago Family Photographer

Let Mom shine in this week’s pick! I love bright, vibrant colors for photos – I always tell my clients – don’t be afraid of colors for photos! You don’t have to wear black and white for photos!!!

What to Wear Wednesday – Chicago Family Photographer

What to wear to your family photography session?? So many moms stress about this – but really, it’s nothing to worry about. However, you should put some thought into it since your portrait session is an investment and you want to love the end product – and what you are wearing is part of that.

I advise people to NOT wear matching clothes – i.e. everyone in khaki pants and white shirts. I assume that’s not how a family lives their day to day life, all dressing the same

Being a dog owner, I realize that dogs (and any type of pet!) can be a part of the family! So if a family wants to bring their pet to the studio to be included in family photos – I say bring ’em along! But, I’m not going to lie, when this doggie walked into the studio, she made me stop in my tracks!!! She was so big!! After I got over the initial

When the sweetest little newborn comes in with the most adorable brothers and sister AND a gorgeous mom who is seriously so sweet, well, let’s just say it makes me love what I do even more. If that’s even possible. I can’t wait to see them all again!!

A new photo project!! – Chicago Tween Photographer

I have been working on this project and I am so excited to finally show some images and talk about it!!! Do you remember what it was like to be 11 or 12? Kind of awkward, right? It was for me, anyway. And when I look at the (very) few photos that exist of me at that age – well, that’s just it, there are very few. Why is that? Why do the tween ages so often get forgotten? On one hand I get it, newborns are so tiny and well, new! Of course you want to take photos all day long! And babies
