We saved the cake for last!! One year old portrait sessions are a blast. Every child handles the cake smash differently. This little darling enjoyed every single bite but we think the frosting was a bigger hit than the cake itself:). Her toes even made it into the side of the cake. The images of her are priceless!
How fast one year can go by?! We photographed this beautiful girl when she was under 2 weeks old! We love watching our newborns grow up. She was the cutest toddler doing her best to stand up on her own. We provided a little assistance for her though:). She really enjoyed showing off her new tutu in our photography studio too!
We feel that every newborn portrait session is so special to us but this in-studio portrait session was extra special:). Laurie was beyond thrilled to document the first week of life of her precious little niece. This little baby was “at home” in our studio and was so happy to be all curled up on our organic-made blankets and wraps. What a blessing this little girl is to her beautiful family!
Nothing better than photographing at a forest preserve on a gorgeous day with a fun-loving family! The kids also enjoyed holding hands with their parents while strolling along the various paths during their portrait session. Truly a picture perfect day!
We witnessed the beautiful bond between these siblings during their outdoor portrait session. This little sister looks up to her big brother and he absolutely adores her. These images show their love and friendship towards one another. They were so much fun to photograph at the forest preserve!
We love when a baby warms up to us and shows off her skills:). She enjoying singing to us and being ever so happy even towards the end of the portrait session. She was darling inside and out!
She was a no fuss just sweet kind of baby. No socks for this baby…she loved moving those toes and grabbing her ankles. With each new outfit placed on her she had to taste the texture, the baby stage when one wants everything in her mouth including her dress! Those big eyes just draw you in too!
This adorable baby boy was SO content curling up with our organic fabrics in our Highwood photography studio. He slept through the majority of the newborn portrait session and provided us with the cutest newborn noises while sleeping. We created beautiful portraits for his parents and grandparents to cherish for a lifetime.
Boy do these two cuties love their parents…except when a kiss was shared at the end of the portrait session:)!! This family truly has an amazing bond and these outdoor portraits definitely show the love. The mother daughter bond is just as strong as the father daughter bond! We loved photographing this beautiful family.
Outdoor portrait sessions can be some of our favorite sessions when we jump into the fall season! This fun-loving family of four was put to the challenge of who could jump the highest. Their laughter could be heard throughout the park! Both girls were determined to jump higher than their parents during this portrait session. Everyone was a winner in our book!!
Sisters who laugh together love together too. During their in-studio portrait session the sisters enjoyed making one another laugh during the "serious" portraits. We were so entertained by their interactions. A sister will always be there to make the other one giggle and gleam. They are beautiful little ladies inside and out!
This little guy was the star during the in-studio portrait session. We could photograph him all day! Oh those beautiful big eyes! He found out quickly how fun it was to pull on his suspenders too!
These studio portraits absolutely melt our hearts. The love and joy of this family is precious. We have know all of them for awhile and we were beyond excited to welcome them to our portrait studio. The two big sisters make this little guy laugh and smile non stop. What a lucky brother he is!
She was an absolute doll during her individual portraits! She snuggled up to all of our soft organic fabrics and slept for the majority of her newborn portraits. It was a pleasure working with this baby girl and her parents:).
This beautiful baby girl was all smiles with her mommy and daddy during her family newborn portrait session. She is surrounded by SO much love from her adoring parents.
We look forward to this family's outdoor fall portrait session each year! We have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph these adorable kids since they were newborns! We love that they are so excited to see us too. Their smiles are contagious! An absolute beautiful family inside and out:).
She was the sweetest little girl...oh, those big blue eyes too:). We were smitten with her happiness that filled our studio. We enjoyed watching this family interact during their family portrait session. This little darling could not be happier receiving so many kisses from her parents too!
Oh boy, these two were the cutest! They LOVED being side by side during their newborn portrait session...hands, cheeks and noses were always touching! We have a feeling these brothers will be very close friends too:). We adored watching their non stop brotherly bond.
This family is like family to Laurie and I. Laurie has been photographing their family portraits for almost 10 years! We were lucky enough to meet these little girls when they were only 10 days old! The girls LOVE to run and play during their outdoor portrait sessions and you can clearly see how much fun the entire family has together. What a beautiful morning at the Chicago Botanic Gardens!
We got our daily workout keeping up with the little guy during the outdoor portrait session. We love his energy though! He enjoyed exploring the outdoors and playing beside his adoring parents. We last photographed the family in our portrait studio when he was just beginning to walk. What a difference a year can make! He is such a happy boy too. We are delighted to work with this beautiful family each year.
