I am so lucky to have two talented women that help me run my business and let me do what I love to do – they make my life much easier and I am so thankful for both of them. Since I’ve taken photos of both of them, I thought I’d show you who they are and tell you a little about them!

All smiles – Chicago Portrait Photographer

beautyphotos

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

glamourphotography

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

girl crush – chicago headshot photographer

headshots

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

click, click, click

maternityphotography

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

“big kids”

familyphotography

it’s no secret i love babies, but i also love having older “kids” into the studio. it’s a different kind of fun. i also love having older siblings in the studio – especially brothers, probably because i have two boys so i look at it as a glimpse into my future (hopefully!)  these two brothers were laughing and making jokes, wait, maybe, they were laughing AT me instead of WITH me!!!  it’s possible!! just like my boys, i guess!  this family was so much fun

mother’s day

glamour

i’d wager that if you ask the average 2-6 year old girl who the most beautiful woman in the world is, after they answer (insert current Disney princess name here) their reply would be their own mother.  i talk to many, many little girls over the course of a year so i think i may have an inside scoop. as little girls our moms are our first role models and they give us the first glimpse of what it means to be a woman.  i remember watching my mom getting ready for fancy nights out, they probably
