It’s a pretty great thing when you get to photograph a family that you grew up with… and the WHOLE family (including a furry face) none the less! We had to wait a whole year due to COVID to get everyone back together, but I think it was well worth the wait! And may I […]

The (whole!) R. Family

The B. family of three had the most beautiful morning fall session this month. That sweet little girl is the world’s best hugger! I think it’s the first time that I’ve ever had a little one walk right up to me with an immediate hug. And it was the best! I’ll take hugs and snuggles […]

Not only is it definitely fall in Chicago, but I get an extra dose of friendly faces in front of my camera this time of year. Oh how I love it! And these two sweet little brotherly smiles… what could be better? They did such a great job (even in a sweater on an unseasonably […]

Have I mentioned that I love, love, love when my clients bring their dog along for a family session? And this sweet dog, Brady, was just the best! He was more well behaved than any of my dogs at home. Just look at that happy little guy! And those three (non-furry) smiling faces are pretty […]

Christmas Mini Sessions

September 27, 2021

This sweet little face is just about to turn TWO, and had the sweetest birthday / family photo session to help celebrate it! These three were the sweetest and did such an amazing job cuddling, snuggling, and playing during our morning session. A family that cuddles is always my favorite. Cuddles and kisses should be […]
