Nine Months

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!

These ladies are so gorgeous I feel like I should be paying them to take their photos!  We had to reschedule this shoot due to weather multiple times, but I'm so glad we were able to finally get together.  We met at Chicago's Lincoln Park Botanical Gardens on one of the first sunny spring days.  Needless to say, it was PACKED!  But we were able to find some spots that worked perfectly for us.  

Sisters are for life!

These ladies all came in off white dresses, which later was revealed to be a happy accident.  I love the way they all go together, it looks so classy!

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.
