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

newbornphotography

Summer has gone by in a whirlwhind of travel (more on that later!), family, friends, new clients, and repeat clients. And before I knew it my boys were back at school. The heat wave that Chicago was enjoying (OK, maybe I was the only one enjoying it) was over and the temperature came crashing down to 63 degrees yesterday morning as well as I dropped my guys off for 7th grade and 4th grade.

It feels like summer is offically over. At least in my house.

Anyone who knows me knows how incredibly sad

Is it finally summer here in Chicago? In between the rain and storms that we’ve had here, we have glimpses of beautiful days like today. Where the sky is almost as blue as this sweet baby boy’s eyes.

But not quite. I mean, look at those blue eyes!!

simply gorgeous. Chicago Portrait Photographer

I LOVE doing these mother/daughter sessions!! But I ESPECIALLY love when they come in and see their images for the first time.  Why you may ask? Because most women think they are going to come in and flip through the images and maybe pick one or two they don’t hate. They think that they’ll be at the studio for about 10 minutes. They think that the photo session itself was an amazing, pampering, fun experience that they will remember and cherish but they *know* that they are not photogenic

Is there any better place to fall asleep than in the arms of mommy or daddy? I don’t think so! For being only two weeks old, this baby girl was one smart cookie!!

all fun, all the time – chicago family photographer

babyphotography

The question I always ask families or anyone I’m about to photograph is what they’d like to capture in the images, what is their vision for the session? I’d say that one of the most common answers for families is that they are looking to capture the personality of their family, “candid” moments, they don’t want to looked too posed, etc. I love these kind of answers!! To me, this means that this person has clearly looked at my website or my blog and has

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
