SBP-4851

So you purchased all of your digital images – now what should you do with them??!!! If you are like many people, please don’t let them just sit on the flash drive! Digital images are great to have for archiving photos – but you can also do so many things with them!

Love and connection – Family Photography Chicago

I’m always thrilled when a family chooses me to photograph them! When I spend a couple of hours with a family, I feel like I really get to know them and see how their family works and loves each other. So when a family comes back to me year after year – I feel really honored! I’ve had so many repeat clients this summer and for that I am always grateful.

That was an eye opener. I tell moms who are a little reluctant to get

Hold the Cheese! – Chicago Kid Photographer

_SBP0711

I’ve been going thru photos as I prepare for a website re-vamp. I came across this little sweetie and the non-smiling image really caught my eye. Kids don’t always want to smile for photos – and that is OK! Personally, sometimes I like the non-smiling photos better and I’ll take non-smiling over fake smile any day of the week! Another reason why I will never ask a child to say “cheese!” What I will do is some pretty silly things to elicit a real smile from a
