sunshine and bubbles – chicago baby photographer


it may be 40 below here in chicago (ok, that’s a slight exaggeration) but we can still stay inside the studio where it’s nice and toasty and sunny and blow bubbles and not even think about the arctic tundra that is happening outside. at least that’s my plan…and i’m sticking to it!!!

springtime in paris! – chicago family photographer


it’s official!! it’s been in the works for awhile but now it’s happening! and now i can talk about it without feeling like i’m going to jinx it! i’m going to paris in the spring to photograph a sweet baby boy (and his family!) i’ve photographed his sisters and mom the last few summers in chicago, but when mom suggested i come there to photograph the newest addition to the family i jumped at the chance!!! my husband has offered (very kindly ) to be my assistant this trip so we will also be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary while there. as you can imagine i am counting down the days!!

how’s this for a valentine’s day sweetie? holding hands and dimples? it’s too much cuteness. it’s always so fun having twins in the studio – especially when they are as dreamy as these two!!
