Sitting up!!! – Chicago Baby Photographer

family

Sitting up sessions are some of the best sessions!! Babies smiling, parents laughing, so much fun to be had! When babies are around 6 months old, I always recommend that families wait until their baby is sitting up solidly on their own to schedule their photo session. All babies are different, but the majority are doing so by about 8 months. It’s worth the wait to wait until this milestone! These sessions are much different than newborn sessions in that the baby is smiling, their personality

Best friends and other things – Chicago child photographer

sibling photography

When I was a new mom and my boys were much younger, I met a mom who’s boys were older than mine but about the same difference in age as my boys. I noticed her boys playing in the park together. They were laughing, playing tag and getting on like the best of pals. Her and I struck up a conversation and I asked her about the age difference ( 2 1/2 years) and if her boys always got along so well. Her reply was perfect and is seared into my memory. “They’re best friends and mortal

Year after year I have clients that come back to me, which is not only such a compliment but also such a joy because I get to see them again and see how they’ve grown and changed over the year. This is one of those clients – you may recognize his sweet little face. I love seeing it every year and seeing what new funny thing he’s doing and saying. He never disappoints!!

Goodbye Chicago! – Chicago Family Photographer

familyphotography

I loved everything about this session except for the fact that this awesome family was saying goodbye to Chicago! We had so much fun at their session and our city gave us such a great day (although it did live it up to it’s name – Windy! and yes, I know, I know, Chicago is not called the Windy City because of the actual wind!)

This family is onto their next adventure in another great American city, but I’m so happy that they will have the photos of their beautiful, happy family

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

A new photo project!! – Chicago Tween Photographer

tweenphotography

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
