Unsolicited Advice – Chicago Newborn Photographer

newbornphotography

I’ve been going through lots of our photos lately in preparation for my oldest son’s 8th grade graduation. Gasp!! It’s a tradition in our school to do a short photo montage of each student at the 8th grade dinner/dance (parents at my school if you’re reading this – get your photos in ASAP!!) Going through these photos makes me wonder how this now 5’7″ 14 year old was ever an itty bitty baby like the one below – how did this happen? Didn’t I

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

All in the family! – Chicago Baby Photographer

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

City or suburbs? – Chicago family photographer

familyphotography

I love seeing clients that have been coming back to me year after year, kid after kid, new town after new town. When clients move from the city to the suburbs (as some do!) I’ll often get the panicked question – “do you come to the suburbs?!!?”  I assure them, yes! I do!! While I’m a city girl at heart, I love to get out of the city and explore the amazing parks that so many suburbs have to offer. So, if you are living in a suburb and have been wondering about a

Labor day weekend and double digits! – Chicago Children’s photographer

babyphotography

Every year at this time I’m brought back to my own “labor day”.  Ten years ago this weekend, my youngest son was born – which means he will be double digits this year, baby! I can hardly believe it. How can this be happening?

Whenever one of my boys’ birthday comes around I always try and take a moment out of the day and think about the actual day they were born. I think about the events of the day. How I felt. How things progressed. Things we said. The timeline of

Daddy and Me – Chicago Baby Photographer

babyphotography

When you’re the dad and you’re the photographer of the family, it’s rare that you get to see yourself in photos with your child, unless they are selfies or taken in a photo booth. I speak from experience. Not about the dad part.

So I’m always thrilled when this good friend and his wife ask me to photograph their family, not only because they are one of the most gorgeous families on the planet and I love them, but also because I want my friend to be able to see how he looks
