Perspective

Perspective can mean the difference between a tosser and an amazing composition.  The perspective on this particular shot creates a bit of an illusion... children that appear to be running up hill with the sky in the distance are actually running down hill to a lake.  

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.

The gift that keeps on giving!

This session was a present to Mom!  As we near the holidays this is something you might consider for your own mother or grandmother.  It is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

Not only do you spend a morning together enjoying each others company and making mom/grandma oh so very happy, but you are creating new memories.  At the end of this special experience, you will take these moments with you forever, both figuratively and literally.  

Check out a couple of my favorites from a recent "gift."  
 

Late Summer Blooms

Spring and fall are often coveted times of the year to take your family photos, but do not overlook the august early September bloomers!  The purples, yellows and whites are abundant and make for stunning photos.  

Momma to-be

This beautiful momma to be, is just glowing!  Growing another human can be downright difficult, painful and tiring... its nice to take a moment to appreciate how beautiful a mother to be is.  Bringing another human into this world is, in my opinion, one of the most amazing things a person can do.

 

 

Stars perfectly aligned!

Sometimes everything just lines up... from outfits, to children's moods, lighting, etc.  This is one of those instances where it all just worked.  I think that all sessions can be like this, it takes a little preparation, and a laid back, go with the flow attitude when the day of the shoot arrives. 

 

Headshots with the founders of B-Wel

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the ladies of B-Well on a very chilly Sunday in November.  B-Well is an organization focused bringing health and wellness events to the education sector.  

Lisette and Renee met me in downtown Downers Grove, to snap a few headshots for their events and website.  We also popped into the Downers Grove Spenga, where they graciously let us utilize their space to come in from the cold.  

Many thanks to both B-Well and Spenga.
