Jeff, Nicole & Tyler

Jeff, Nicole & Tyler

Jeff, Nicole and Tyler are a true Chicago family.

Nicole and I were introduced through a mutual friend.  I've heard many times (from many people!) that Tyler is the baby with the most smiles.  Holy smokes they were right!

Nicole and I had met several times prior to the photoshoot.  Each time I'm with her I get to know her a little better, but this is the first time I really spent a lot of time looking at her.  Wow, she is so beautiful!!!  How did I not realize how stunning she was before?  

Seriously though, I could photograph this little guy all day long!

Jeff and Nicole brought an element of calmness to the session.  It always helps when you can be relaxed - it's easier to be yourself in the photos and to get more candid pictures.

I love being a Chicago family photographer.  Nicole and Jeff, thank you for trusting me to capture this moment!  Tyler is adorable, happy and clearly loves the two of you to pieces.  I am excited to watch him grow!  :)

I've had the pleasure of photographing this baby girl since day one.  :)  She is full of smiles that just melt my heart.  

"Yes, yes I am adorable. Now what toys do you have?"

Grandma and Grandpa came all the way to Chicago, so of course we included them in the family photos.  :)  

This little one is loved :)

I like this photo for a lot of reasons, but the pup in the back REALLY wanted to play with the babe and it took all of dad's energy to try and get him to sit. Such a cute dog! (And, of course, cute family!)

I always try to respect client wishes for privacy.  If you're looking for someone to keep your names off of posts and posts off of Facebook/social media, I am happy to oblige!  

To this Chicago family, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your baby girl.  I think she is the sweetest and I can't wait to watch her grow!

When Kristen reached out to me to schedule a shoot I was very excited.  Not only is this family one of the sweetest, but they had added a new family member since I last saw them!  I don't know if this is obvious yet, but I LOVE BABIES!  :) 

We met up at a lakeside park near Chicago.  Big sister was killing it from the get-go.  :)

Little brother was such a doll!  He had the best hair and the cutest little face.  

I'm currently loving the grainy black and white look.

What do you mean the leaves don't belong on his head?  They look brilliant on him!

This last image is one of my favorites.  Big sister is so sweet.  Overall, I am thankful to have caught up with the Barry family and meet the newest member.  I wish them nothing but the best and can't wait to watch them grow.  :)

Welcome Baby Luka

Welcome Baby Luka

Like most creatives, I've spent plenty of time working in the industry.  While serving may not be the most glorious job, there is something about the hustle and bustle that is addictive.  Plus, people in the industry are interesting because they tend to be transient - most people don't plan on staying in the same place permanently and have a ton of varied plans for the future.  This is how I met Rachel.  

Rachel was the bar manager at Kinmont in it's hay-day.  She is so easy to connect with, we hit it off right away.  :)  Like a true bar manager, Rachel had spent years in the industry.  In fact, that's how she met her now husband.  They were married last fall, and this spring welcomed their newest addition - baby Luka.  

I love being a newborn photographer!  Check this little cutie out.  :)

I was more than happy to be the newborn photographer for this new Chicago family!  This little guy was so adorable, so perfect.  I couldn't get enough.

One of my goals as a photographer is to make your session as hassle free and relaxed as possible while capturing the perfect photos for you and your family.  This Chicago family was the epitome of relaxed and easy going.  :)  

Mary-Pat and Dave are first time parents.  Meeting their daughter was such a treat!  It was pouring and very gloomy outside, so we stuck close to the window for that beautiful natural light.  

That smile! #chicagofamily #chicagofamilyphotographer #chicagobaby

I never know how much time a newborn will give me during a newborn photoshoot.  This little lady had around 30 minutes before deciding it was quitting time.  Of course, not before she showed off a variety of personalities.  #sweetbaby #chicagobaby

Mother-and-Son

Ahhhhh these two!  This babe is sweet, curious and LOVES being with his mom.  We were lucky enough to have landed one of those unseasonably warm winter days.

Check out those converse shoes!  I love it when people dress up, but there is something about this mom's down to earth and relaxed style that fit the day perfectly.  #loveit

The best relationship :)

I could post every photo from this session, but I'll resist.  :)  Privacy is always something I strive to respect, and this mama bear is protective of her cub.  Totally understandable!  One last one before I go...
