I get this question all of the time. And while I can’t answer that question for your family – I can provide some advice, opinions and some things to think about.
First, I would say it’s important to decide if you want your session indoors or outdoors. For this blog post, I will focus on outdoor sessions. (a future post will be dedicated to indoor/studio sessions.)
Chicagoans are very lucky to live in such a beautiful area – with so many spots to choose from for a photo session
We had so much fun at the park – doing what kids do – running, checking out paths in the garden, and running some more!
Sessions outdoors at this time of year are always a good idea. We know lots of good parks in the city and some suburbs! There are still a few remaining weekends before the holiday season – so call/email to book your session now.
I’m going to keep this simple. Nothing earth-shattering. But maybe some things you’ve haven’t thought about before. Maybe some things to make your day just a touch better.
Do reach out to a fellow mom/aunt/friend to tell them how much they mean to you or that you think they are doing a good job. I don’t think these holidays necessarily have to be for your own mother, or even only for mothers. This will make you feel great – I promise! Do create

Recently we collaborated once again to update the windows since Gigi’s expanded and have even more windows to cover with beautiful faces! Below are just some of the photos that were taken that day –
A Thank You to Beyonce and Preparing for your Own Maternity Session – Chicago Maternity Photographer
I’d like to send Beyonce a big thank you note on behalf of the entire nation, maybe even the world. What an amazing break that was from the constant and seemingly endless barrage of politics, alternative facts and false news. Queen B knew exactly what we needed and she knew exactly how to deliver it. I think it’s safe to say that at least for a day, everyone was a part of the Bee Hive. I mean, absolutely everybody is talking about it!! Yesterday, the Chicago Tribune called me about
“The circles of women around us weave invisible nets of love that carry us when we’re weak and sing with us when we are strong.”
