'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 Costco gives you lemons! {Chicago Family Photographer} {Naperville Family Photographer

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 :)

Beautiful Lifestyle session with baby #3! Naperville Newborn Photographer

Lifestyle newborn sessions have gained popularity in recent years... and when a family is bringing home baby #3 it only makes sense to want to bring that baby into the home you have created where everyone including the siblings can really be involved.

Day at the office - Chicago Photographer

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!

Bring the Spring - Downers Grove Photographer

This spring is making it really hard to think about family photo session... I get it, my personal family session is on Sunday and want nothing more than fields of daffodils and tulips, purple crocus and green buds, but what do we have? BROWN, dappled with the couple of sad daffodils that decided it was time to bloom on that single 70 degree day we had a couple weeks back.  

What to do?  

Well this is what we are doing... we are going to go to locations that offer structure, look for textures and visual interest aside from those buds that are mostly not available... Downtown areas might be more likely to have a few blooms in their planted beds.

And what about those cute outfits you have planned?

Think layers... you can still rock that cute spring dress with pastels, but throw on a denim jacket, throw on a sweater... something that looks cute on but you can easily take off for a couple shots to show off your vision for everyones outfits.  Be flexible.

These images were taken in downtown Naperville and show of how you can get creative with your surroundings.  The blooms will be here soon enough, and in the meantime, embrace the patterns that are around you!

Cake smash in the studio! - DuPage County Photographer

First smash cake in the studio!  

And so excited it was this awesome family that I have had the pleasure of working with year after year!  So much has grown and changed over the years.  I can't wait to see what is in store next!

Baby Crazy in Chicago

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.  

Studio Fun

Just playing around in the studio with my little ballerina.  I am not going to lie, I am sitting here scratching my head wondering how and when my little baby girl started to posses such grace.  I am also contemplating how much trouble I am in when she hits her teens... Wish me luck people!  

New life!

What better way to start the new year than with a session honoring new life?!?  From baby toes to pouty lips this little one has it all!

Hot Cocoa Session

Fall weather can be a bit all over the place, especially this year!  But have no fear, if your session is set for a day that might not be exactly optimal, we can turn lemons into lemonade... or chocolate into hot cocoa in this case. 

We managed to get some amazing family photos, and then wrapped up with a warm cup of cocoa.  Check out these amazing shots on a chilly evening in November.
