What a day with Gigi’s Playhouse! – Chicago Portrait Photographer

Gigisblog

In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, I’m posting images from the day I had a few weeks ago with some of the amazing people at Gigi’s Playhouse in Chicago.

In 2013, Gigi’s approached me to take the photographs that currently (but not much longer!) appear on their windows. Recently we collaborated once again to update the windows since Gigi’s expanded and have even more windows to cover with beautiful faces! Below are just some of the photos that were taken that day &#8211

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.

When someone cares for your babies, they often become part of your family. At least that’s been my experience. So when the nanny babysitter person who makes my life easier and loves my kids told me that she was expecting a baby I knew that I just had to take photos of that little peanut when he arrived! It was really cool to see her with her own little person – she is so nurturing and loving with other people’s babies and now she can do that for her own.

Such a treat! – Chicago Newborn Photographer

I hope everyone had a great Halloween, despite the less-than-ideal Chicago weather! Although, if someone is giving my kids free candy, they don’t really care what the weather is like – it could be snowing, sleeting, raining, whatever. I can always count on my youngest guy staying out for the full 3 hours getting as much candy as he possibly can!

Anyway, these twins were such a treat to have in the studio!!! Just look how sweet they are! I hope they are this sweet to each other their
