Best friends and other things – Chicago child photographer

sibling photography

When I was a new mom and my boys were much younger, I met a mom who’s boys were older than mine but about the same difference in age as my boys. I noticed her boys playing in the park together. They were laughing, playing tag and getting on like the best of pals. Her and I struck up a conversation and I asked her about the age difference ( 2 1/2 years) and if her boys always got along so well. Her reply was perfect and is seared into my memory. “They’re best friends and mortal

Goodbye Chicago! – Chicago Family Photographer

familyphotography

I loved everything about this session except for the fact that this awesome family was saying goodbye to Chicago! We had so much fun at their session and our city gave us such a great day (although it did live it up to it’s name – Windy! and yes, I know, I know, Chicago is not called the Windy City because of the actual wind!)

This family is onto their next adventure in another great American city, but I’m so happy that they will have the photos of their beautiful, happy family

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

sunshine and bubbles – chicago baby photographer

SBP-1664

it may be 40 below here in chicago (ok, that’s a slight exaggeration) but we can still stay inside the studio where it’s nice and toasty and sunny and blow bubbles and not even think about the arctic tundra that is happening outside. at least that’s my plan…and i’m sticking to it!!!

babies and brothers

babyphotography

what a difference a year makes! just last year around this time this sweet boy was in my studio and now he’s back with his new little best friend! i’ve said it before that i have a soft spot for brothers and these two were a perfect example of why. sweet and loving, but with a touch of rough and tumble. hugs and kisses, but with a poke in the eye and yank of the ear. years ago when my two were younger and it seemed like they were fighting each other more than they were loving each
