Archive for 'Family Photo Session'

Nothing is as good as a lifestyle family photography session at home. So when Sarah reached out and invited me into her home to photograph their first family session I was beyond thrilled. It's such an honor as a photographer to get to capture these precious first newborn moments because they just grow in the blink of an eye.  Mix in the fact that Sarah is a freelance prop stylist (hence her beautifully decorated Bucktown home)  paired with the sweetest and smallest baby flower crown created by local florist Pistil and Vine. I had the perfect backdrop for The Freel's cozy family session.  Baby Reese is simply adorable and on her way to becoming as stylish as her mom- Congrats!!

Lincoln Park Chicago Family PhotographerI love photographing families for the first time. And the Soracoe family were pros to say the least! Photographing some special memories with their one year old Caroline at the Nature Boardwalk in Lincoln Park was such a blast! The sun was out during our morning photo session as well which just added to the beautifully warm lighting. I can't wait to photograph this family again later this year.

The clouds parted just in time for my photo session with The Barkers last week. It was so great to meet them at the South Pond in Lincoln Park while all the trees were at last in full bloom.  And little Ava was the center of attention sporting her adorable jean jacket, espadrilles and the best smiles that had us all laughing out loud. There is nothing quite like summer in the city with family!

Chicago Family PhotographerChicago Family PhotographerChicago Family PhotographerIt's been an exciting month hosting a few families for our first Chicago holiday mini sessions in our Logan Square studio. I love the fact that every family brought so much great energy to the set that it made it hard for me to pick my most favorites to send to my clients. As soon as they arrived we cranked up our Holiday Collection of tunes on Spotify to help get everyone into the Christmas spirit even more. We have a few more sessions lined up for the following week and I am so excited to keep our studio doors open for our clients this season.

The colors, leaves, and crisp cool air is the perfect excuse to layer up and hold the ones you love even closer. Photographing The Gary family at the Dan Ryan Woods Forest Preserve and at their home nearby in Beverly made for the perfect Fall day!

Adrian their oldest son had us all laughing out loud more than once with his love and panache for being in front of the camera.  So much love and new adventures happening for this sweet family of four! Thank you Brandon + Milissa for inviting me to capture these moments for you all and for inviting me into your beautiful home!

I've had such a great time photographing The Holden family for the past year and a half. It's been so great seeing their little ladies get so big with every session!  When Chrystal reached out to me last year she was wanting to purchase a milestone session which always thrills me cause I really feel like I get to know a family so much more over our sessions. I include 4- 1 hour sessions in each of my milestone packages, which is a prefect way for a growing family to capture so many sweet moments!

We had a beautiful afternoon walking and playing around Lake Charles Park in Vernon Hills. The sun was shining in all the best ways too!  Thank you so much Matt + Chrystal for inviting me into your home and your lives for the past year and a half. Please have another cute baby so we can do it all over again 🙂
I've been photographing the May family for over a year now so when Katie asked me to photograph her sweet baby girl's 1st birthday bash- I knew it was going to be

a great celebration!  Arabella celebrated in style with a zebra themed birthday bash. Her talented mama- Katie created lots of sweet touches to help pull all the decor together!

It was a great afternoon spent outdoors at their Lake Forest home among close friends and family. Happy Birthday Arabella!!

Nothing like kicking off the weekend on the amazing grounds at Elawa Farm in Lake Forest. There grounds are just exploding with flower beds which made for the perfect backdrop for this sweet family photo session. We had a blast!  Can't wait until our next session!
One of the most rewarding parts about being a photographer is the chance to experience tender new family moments like these. Greg and Katie welcomed the sweetest baby girl into their hearts and home and life will never be the same. Spending time with them at the Mellody Farm Nature Preserve in Lake Forest I experienced first hand what awesomely nurturing parents they both are. It was a joy filled afternoon spent alongside the a rustic landscape. Congratulations to you both!
