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!!

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?

I love seeing clients that have been coming back to me year after year, kid after kid, new town after new town. When clients move from the city to the suburbs (as some do!) I’ll often get the panicked question – “do you come to the suburbs?!!?” I assure them, yes! I do!! While I’m a city girl at heart, I love to get out of the city and explore the amazing parks that so many suburbs have to offer. So, if you are living in a suburb and have been wondering about a

This little guy knows the Cubs are number one!! And I’m sure his family will be root, root rooting for the Cubbies tonight as they beat the Mets in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. What an exciting time to be a baseball fan in the city of Chicago! Let’s Go Cubbies!!!
