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.

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.

Annika is ONE!!! I first met this family last December on a frigid (but GORGEOUS day)… and this little darling rocked that shoot then too. We had the most gorgeous, perfect summer night along Lake Michigan (you know, the kind of night that reminds us why we love Chicago so darn much). Absolute perfection. Sneak a peek at this little muchkin, who is SOOOO close to walking it’s not even funny!! Happy Birthday, Annika! 🙂 <3

This beautiful mama and I grew up playing volleyball together… so it’s super cool to get to continue to see her family grow and change. Little man Declan is about to become a big brother to a little baby girl (Due in September). And man oh man, is he gonna be a good one! He is a bundle of joy, curiosity and giggles. I adooooooore everything about this mini session. Another sneak peek below:

Honestly, every single time I’m asked to photograph your newest addition, I am humbled. How cool that I get to come to your homes and capture your newly expanded family? Right?! I get to capture the JOY, the tears in your eyes, the way you stare longingly into the little person that was JUST inside of you a few days beforehand. You’re still getting to know them and I get to see it in your eyes…. THESE moments are the magic that makes you all a family. Gah, I love it. This session was nooooo exception. It was a blast hanging with the R family, meeting big sister, Vera and her biggest fan, sweet baby girl Cambria. <3

Welcome to this big beautiful world, baby girl. <3

Those last few weeks with your FIRST born… Where you’re savoring the little moments, the smiles, the giggles and your precious time together as a family of three.  All while anxiously awaiting someone totally new, magical and wonderful that you’ll fall equally head over heels for. {F} family, you make my heart swoon and ovaries wanna burst. <3 I am so excited for you and your new adventure. Can’t wait to capture you all again when you grow to be a family of FOUR!

And just like that… they were a family of FIVE!!! I met this family when big sis was just TWO years old and mama had Bud Bud in her belly – its such a treat for me to reunite with families and see how they’ve grown and changed. I spent a sunny Sunday with the wonderful C family and captured their newest addition! Sebastian was born just FIVE days ago and rocked the heck outta this session. Sneak a peeek at some of my favorite moments below:

Hellloooooooooo, sweet Charley.

Families that love on each other, that freely give kisses and that bask in the warmth of their little’s spitup? Are my FAVORITEST PEOPLE EVER. This session was anything but typical from start to finish and I couldn’t get enough of it.Charley’s contagious smile lights up both momma and daddy in ways that words can’t describe. LOVE.Combine that with their TWO 100lb adorable Bernese Mountain dogs (whom love to sit on your feet and snuggle with you as if they are lap dogs)?? Which again, I LOVEDDDDD! Obsessed from start to finish with this family and their life.

Sneak a peek at some of our favorites from our Valentine’s weekend session:

A little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. she can jitter around, and stomp, and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves yet just when you open your mouth she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.
