theirlevel

Now that it’s summer, you may be taking more photos of your kids – either on vacation, or because of the holiday. Whatever the reason – here are 3 ways to improve those images:

1. Get down to their level. To really connect and make the photo seem more natural, get down to your kids’ level. Think about it, would you want to take a photo with your neck strained looking up? I wouldn’t! When you get down to their size, it’s less overwhelming for them.

Client-share Monday! – Baby Photography Chicago

babyphotography

I love Mondays. For so many reasons. I’m not going to lie, part of it has to do with everyone else in my house going off to work or school (or camp in the summer). I love the quiet and the calm – even if it’s just for an hour or two while my day gets started. But I also love Mondays because that is the day that I share images from a recent client session. I’m trying something new with my blog – Mondays will be a client share, Wednesdays will be a how-to, and Fridays

Slow down! – Chicago Family Photographer

familyphotography

I’m feeling sappy today – and I’m not really sure why. I even made my kids let me take their photos before they went off to school, as if it were the first day of school. (to be fair, though, I am taking a class so I was practicing some new techniques.) When I sat down to write this post and I started looking at these images of this sweet family, it really made me think of time and how quickly it goes. Could I be anymore cliche? But, man, is it true.

Complete connection – Chicago Newborn Photographer

newbornphotography

It’s always a privilege to photograph a family – whether it’s to capture a milestone or a new baby or yearly photos. For the time I spend with that family, I feel a part of it. I feel connected. I’m getting a peek into their lives, their interaction, love and connection. And that’s what I want the images to show.

I have a questionnaire that I send out to clients before our session and one of the questions I ask is “What do you want your children to see in these

I love all the rolls and folds, all the sweet little toes, all the smiles when they are sleeping (what on earth are they thinking?) and I love seeing the looks the parents give – as if they never realized they could feel this way about another person – especially one so tiny!

Ah! The perks of being a newborn photographer!
