Babies, Babies, everywhere…

A little collage of recent work this summer. All I can say is, babies are clearly in the air here in Chicagoland! Off to a maternity shoot this evening with a beautiful expectant mom. Hoping the weather stays kind to us!

 

Drew & Halley + 2

Earlier this winter, I had the opportunity to spend a Sunday morning with this beautiful family in the city. I walked in and could instantly feel the warmth- not only from the wood burning in the fireplace, but from the open spirit of this family. Halley and I had discussed a true “day in the life” approach to the session and I love how it turned out. You can almost smell the french toast, coffee, bacon…..and you can definitely feel the love!

 

Brett & Tami; At Home in the City

This is the second year I have photographed this family and it’s so fun to see how much has changed in just one year. I love that these two are always open to different ideas and are willing to get creative with the shoot. Kids especially need to warm up to their photographer and there is no better place to start than your own home. We spent some time in their new place and then headed over to the beach to capture the skyline, the city and a little bit of history. Enjoy!

 

 

 

Oh, the places you’ll go….

I remember a dear family friend giving me the book “Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, by Dr. Seuss, just before graduating from high school. I looked at it thinking, “Ok, I’m a little old for Dr. Seuss, but sure, thanks. Little did I realize then, how much truth and great advice existed in that one popular children’s book. It’s a favorite in our house now. This was a travel session from my time in the D.C. area back in August. I was fortunate enough to work with this beautiful rising senior and her family. The location was a private academy in Middleburg, VA and it was nothing short of stunning. Good luck Madison! Enjoy!

A new addition: Hillary & Micah +1

I spent the morning in the city with this new family, a couple of weeks ago. Just a day in the life of Adeline Grace…Congrats Hillary & Micah she’s a sweetheart!
