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 Costco has HUGE bags of lemons for sale, you get two and come to my studio in downtown Downers Grove! Well at least that is what this creative momma did! We had so much fun playing around with the set up, and the little one had fun trying to eat them... check it out a few highlights from this lemon-tactic session!
These sweet sisters had some time to themselves in front of the camera before showing off some snuggles and funny moments :)
We took a quick break, cleaned up the lemons and snapped a few of these cuties on a nice clean backdrop... we had such a fun morning playing around! Cant wait to see you guys this fall! And hope to see you in the studio or on location soon too!!

When your friend, client and executive asks you to take pictures for an upcoming article that is being run on her for Profile magazine, you respond with an unequivocal YES.
We started the morning off with hair and makeup by Lisa Pietrzak www.hairandmakeupbylisa.com and a few shots at my studio in Downers Grove.
Followed by a stroll around town, discussing work, family and fun while we snapped pictures and checked out some cool hidden gems right in our own backyards.
Thank you for asking me to be a part of this... I can't wait to see the Profile piece when it comes out!

I used to work in the corporate world; heading to an office every day... but I have long shed my blazer and pumped for a backpack and camera. It was fun to spend a day at the Talos office however capturing the teams headshot. Variety is the spice of life!

This is what its all about... I had the pleasure of snuggling Henry for his newborn pictures... and in the blink of an eye he is a chunky 6 month old with an adorable mohawk. Whats not to love.
And just like his newborn session the entire family was able to get involved for the 6 month milestone; because in the end its all about the family and how life has grown and blossomed!!

What better way to beat the cold than snuggling newborns!?! This Chicago winter has been cold, snowy and full of adorable little bundles! These three families all have new members, but are at very different stages in their lives. We have a first born, a new big sister, and 6 kids become 7... Check out a few of my favorites.
Fall photos are well underway... and can sometimes seem like a daunting task with the little ones. But have no fear, I recently wrote an article for www.mykidlist.com about photoshoot preparedness and what you can do to create a "perfectly you" session that I think might help!
What do I mean by a "Perfectly You" session? Every family is unique and not all kids cooperate or say cheese exactly the way you might hope, but if you embrace your family and kids as they are, and work with your photographer, you can capture amazing pictures that are completely unique to your family; perfectly you. Check it out, whether I am your photographer or someone else, these tips should help. PS this picture is a great example of a "perfectly you" shot!
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.
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 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!
