'Tis the season for baby boys!

This winter has been the winter of baby boys in my studio… Here are a few images from my most recent and very sleepy little guy (he was a rock star during his session)… This super sweet family has two littles under the age of two now and I have a feeling his big sister is going to give him a run for it when he is old enough to keep up!

Glitter in the deep freeze. {Naperville family photographer} {Chicago Family Photographer} {Hinsdale Family Photographer}

Its that time of year… Chicago winter, a particularly frigid and blustery one at that. What’s a photographer to do you say?

Well, what all photographers are doing right now… give a bunch of kids some glitter and let them go crazy.

Seems simple enough, but kids are never really given free reign to throw, feel and play with glitter; the ever spreading, self adhering, shiny virus that it is.

This experience leaves them all wanting to come back tomorrow, but not til next year kids or maybe never if I don’t have amnesia about the clean up required, HAHAHA. Only time will tell.

When photographers go to dinner...

What happens when a bunch of photographers decide to go for dinner?  We stop and take pictures of each other before hand, of course!  Lucky to have such beautiful and talented friends, inside and out.  

Check to these "Baby" blues!

This family has the most intense blue eyes I have ever seen, and they have grown by a 1.  I never get over spending time with a family in their home, while they are getting used to their new normal. Big brother was such a trooper as the crazy of a new baby has entered the home and even took time to read his new brother a book.

Making Time

Making time for family photos, in particular extended family photos, can seem like a daunting task.  Our lives get so busy.  And as the kids grow old, go off to school, move away and start their own families it can seem even more so.

Then comes along one of those all too rare moments where everyone is in town at the same time... you jam as much in as possible that it doesn't seem another activity can fit... but let me suggest trying to sneak an extended family session.  Its a great way to treasure those moments together, and it doesn't need to be the overwhelming commitment that it might seem. 

This extended family came from 3 different states, one couple was leaving for the airport directly from the shoot and yet, they were able to get in a quick 1 hour shoot and be on their way.  Now they have these precious images to remember the time together.  Check it out!  

Cherished Heirlooms

I am in love with the jewel tones in this beautiful sari, which was worn at their firsts' baby shower, and woven through the children pictures!
