One of my long time AHHHHMAZING families surprised me (via email) last week and let me know that they added to their family… Gahhh!! Cue the jumping out of my seat with excitement response!! J Family, thank you, thank YOU for allowing me to capture your little girls first few days.  <3 FYI: She has two adooring older brothers who love holding, kissing on her and seeing her milestones (Biggest brother sprinted into the room to see her in the crib for the first time — – CMON, isn’t that the cutest!?) Just a few sneaks to introduce this sweet baby girl to the world!! <3 World, meet Piper!

 

A baby girl…one of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today. Meet Ruby just 11 days new and baby sister to TWO 12-month-old sisters, this little one will always feel the sisterly love. Congratulations N family on your beautiful baby girl. <3 Thank you, thank YOU for allowing me into your home to capture her arrival and the love you feel for your girls.

World, meet RUBY.

This little bundle of goodness, Colin Scott, arrived in the wee hours of the morning on January 17 to this freaking awesome couple. These new parents have taken to parenthood like white on rice. Full of sleepy laughter and good times, this session (my first of the year) was an absolute treasure. When I asked mom what she wanted to remember about this time she said” I don’t want to forget anything about our little boy. I would love pictures of his little feet, hands, face etc. These are the things I want to always remember even when he’s a grown man.” Oh girl, you’ll get that and so much more. I hope you treasure these early (sleepless) days and nights. It’s gonna flyyyyyy right on by.

Annnnnnnnnd my 2016 season is officially over. That totally FLEW BYYYYYY.

As always, I wanna give  THANK YOU to each and every one of my families! It blows my mind that you allow me into your homes, your lives and you grant me the HONOR of capturing these precious moments in your lives. I am soooooo lucky to have such wonderful and incredibly AWESOME families. I photographed 94 families, 12 newborns, 167 children and traveled 3600 miles around the Chicagoland (and Arizona) area. <3 To those that have either used me as a photographer, recommended me to your families/friends or in general supported me on this crazy journey of mine… THANK YOUUUU.It’s been a great year. I could not ask for better families to “work” with. XoXo.

I wish you all the best and only hope that 2017 brings you nothing but absolute goodness.

I love love love when clients give me free reign to PLAY. And that is just what this session is 100% about. They are all at an age where they find me funny (yay) and love to play tricks and joke right back WITH me. So so so in love with this family and the magic in their eyes when they start to play and seek. Sneakity sneak:

I’ve been photographing this little man since he was just FOUR months old!!! This year, I was invited into the B family’s home to capture life as they live it on an atypical Sunday morning in September (read: HOT and HUMID). We played, read, laughed and giggled our way through the session. Sneak a peek at some of my favorite moments!! <3

You know those moments that you wish you could just live in forever? Those moments you wish you could freeze, stop time and savor… that’s what homestyle sessions are all about. I spent the morning with the D family capturing them as they are. Laughing, loving and playing with one another. D family — your kids are gorgeous, sweet and hands down you all are one of my favorite families to photograph. Thanks for having me in your home and sharing these special moments with me. <3  Ps. I want your house!! Loved it!!!

I met this family while attending a workshop last April… They were our practice family crazily enough! I had the honor and privilege of snapping a few shots of their little man at just a few days old. How time FLIES, y’all! Soooo you can only imagine my joy when I got to meet up this family on a PERFECT fall(ish) night and play amongst the trees, river and catch up with them! Sneak a peek at few of my favorite moments. <3

I met this family last fall for a mini session and was soooo excited that I got to see them for a full session this September! Full sessions give us time to play a little bit more and really run around and have a blast. We first met up at the Riverwalk on a HOT and HUMID Sunday morning. We rocked it out, but felt it was best to try again so everyone (including the photographer) could be a tad more comfy. So glad we did… b/c let me tell you, give a boy some rocks to through and some bridges to run across? Everyone was happy! Sneak a peek at some of our moments:

New baby girl. Proud Big Brother. Beautiful family. What more could can one ask for? Congratulations to the R Family on the arrival of sweet baby Clara… who is named after her great-grandmother. Swooon. Just a few sneaks of some special moments from today’s session! <3
