What to Wear Wednesday – Chicago Family Photographer

What to wear to your family photography session?? So many moms stress about this – but really, it’s nothing to worry about. However, you should put some thought into it since your portrait session is an investment and you want to love the end product – and what you are wearing is part of that.

I advise people to NOT wear matching clothes – i.e. everyone in khaki pants and white shirts. I assume that’s not how a family lives their day to day life, all dressing the same

I hear this all the time. “Just one. That’s all I need is just one good photo of myself.”

All smiles – Chicago Portrait Photographer

The only thing I like more than watching a mother look at photos of her child(ren) from a session is watching a woman look at photos of herself from a fashion-inspired photo session! I love this! It give me chills every time! It usually goes like this – I show them the photos, they look at the photos, they look at me, sometimes a gasp is heard, sometimes a “is that me?!”, sometimes a tissue is needed. This beautiful woman had THE best thing to say – “It makes me smile

Beauty inside and out

You know when you meet someone and you think “well, this is a nice person!” and then you get to know them a little better and then you really see how great they are?!!  Yeah, that’s exactly what happened when I met Ingrid! She’s one of the most positive people I’ve ever met – so encouraging and upbeat! But not in a phony way – she manages to be sweet, funny and kickass all at once. She is a fellow photographer and we had an amazing day together

Let’s talk girl crushes for a minute. everyone has one.  Some have a crush on Gywneth, while others have one on Princess Kate. Currently mine are Brittany Howard, lead singer/guitarist of the Alabama Shakes and Noelle Scaggs, the co-lead singer/songwriter for the Fitz and the Tantrums. (see a theme here?) I think I may just add someone a little more local to my list. Enter – Chris Bell – owner of the store Flatts

is that my shutter clicking away? or is that me and this couple just clicking and “getting” each other? was that totally and completely cheesy?  aahhh, yes it was.  however!!!! the correct answer is . . . wait for it . . . both!! sometimes people come into your life and you just “get” each other. i felt this way about this couple. i’m very lucky actually, because i feel that way about many, many of the clients that walk through my door. what’s even better

i’m not very photogenic.

fashion-inspired

if i had a nickel for everytime a woman said that to me, i’d have a lot of extra $$ to spend!!!!  if i had a dollar for everytime a man said that to me, i’d have about one extra dollar.  little kids don’t say it.  tween and teen girls don’t say it. if you’ve ever followed one on instagram and seen all of the selfies, you KNOW that’s true!!! but that’s a good thing!  i love that!! i pray for those girls that it stays that way for their entire
