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.
Annnnd that’s a wrap! Much love to each any every one of you. I am craaaaazy behind on blogging 80% of these sessions, but I’ll get there! Happiest of holidays to you and yours. Thank you, thank you!
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
Last weekend, I had the honor of photographing little man Brody just 13 days new. This new family of three was beyond cute with the way they held, talked and looked at this guy who has clearly stolen both their hearts. Sneak a peek at some of my favorites below:
I mean… HONESTLY, how flippping adorable is little A? Two months and riiiidiculously cute. I met this sweet family on a day filled with Christmasy spirit – the first snowfall of the season. I walked in and christmas tunes were rocking and I just felt at home… LOVED IT! Just a few sneaks of this sweet fam tonight! <3
Ahhhhh remember this super cute maternity session from this summer? Ummm b/c they were amazing. As was this SUPER EASY newborn session. We had a chat about this… newborn sessions, it’s a funny thing.. I think we all start as photographers having a shared passion, but unsure of what our voice is. I think I’ve finally found where I LOVE newborn photography… Just like my regular photography, it’s the little moments I am after. Each shoot teaches me more and more, but A was the baby that solidified my newborn style through and through. Congratulations to this AMAZING family of three!! Isn’t he just precious?! Gaaaaah! <3
He’s HERE!! Baby E is here! Meet 13 day old D… 8lbs of pure cuteness. I met up with this family over the summer to capture the excitement over this little man’s arrival. Isn’t he just ADORABLE?! Gaaah. Big brother and I had a blast playing around with our “cameras” – the 2nd shot is of C and I “taking pictures” of one another. LOVE this family!!!
Sweet baby girl… just seven days new. Meet Little Miss Leah. So so so so cute. As far as newborns go, she might be one of the easiest babies I’ve ever photographed. Chill, relaxed and alert. Big brother (the pup) was still getting used to the new lady of the house and very curious as to what we were doing, but baby girl slept right through it all. Just a few sneaks:
Get ready for some cuteness. I walked into their home and immediately felt like I was a part of their little clan. These adorable kiddos were warm, inviting and soooo much fun. They immediately showed me their rooms and talked all about the awesomeness of each space. Loved IT. Here are just a few sneak peeks from some of the fun we had during this half indoors/half outdoors session. <3
