Baby Love

Baby Love

There is something about a newborn. From their teeny tiny feet to their heavenly smell, newborns are pretty much perfection.

I do see my fair share of brand spankin’ new babies, that’s true. But what I love about this session is that these guys were very cool with having a no frills lifestyle session and I think it just beautifully captures their new family and most of all, all the love they have for one another.

Quiet Moments Like These…

Quiet Moments Like These…

I never really had a grandmother. I had one who lived in Germany that I met only a handful of times and was more of a really cool aunt than a Granny in that she wasn’t very warm and she liked to buy me Jessica McClintock dresses and give me¬†advice about finding a husband when I was 14. It had its perks. But I sort of missed out on the traditional experience so I really love this image from a recent session. As I was packing up, I noticed these two and I took it before anyone saw me. I just love how happy she looks. That sleeping kid is my handiwork btw. I always leave them tuckered out…

Happy Park

Happy Park

It’s hard to say what I love more, shooting photos or filming. I really love photography, clearly. But these Vignettes are magical.

I met up with the V Family this summer in one of my favorite locals, Chicago’s Lincoln Park.

Mom V is a friend of mine, so I was already excited to just hang out with the family but I was even more excited because the shoot was super laid back & the V’s were totally content with letting me just sort of make it up as we went along.

My inspiration for this film was fun. I wanted to capture the energy of this young family, their joy of just being together & their very close bond. Some of my favorite moments are just of them being them, all the hugs & laughter. After watching it about a million times in post, it still makes me smile really big.

Thanks so much for coming out & letting capture your family, you guys were amazing!

Small Wonder

Small Wonder

The first thing you notice about little J is that she’s a ball of energy! She zips around the room, a tiny giggling blur of pink pleats and curls.

When she takes a breather and curls up on the couch with her mama the second thing you notice is her gorgeous eyes. They’re steely blue and green, striking, and framed with most delicate lashes. She’s quite a beauty that little one.

I met the D family bright and early one sunny Friday morning for a mini session at their home and I have to just take a moment to swoon over their house. It’s a gem, completely restored with the most amazing tin tile ceilings. Tin tile! See that? I’m swooning. I love tin tile. You can just barely see it in the third photo. Take a peek…

Someone is probably thinking it’s been about 100 days since my last post, but you would be wrong! (even though it kind of feels that long) The 100 Day Celebration is a tradition in many cultures when families celebrate a baby’s 100 day milestone.
