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.
It is with heartfelt appreciation that we humbly announce that Soben Studios has been awarded the 2016 Best of Chicagoland Award! We are thrilled to receive this news, and so honored to have been a recipient of these awards for the past three years. We are excited and honored, especially to be recognized among such a distinguished group of fellow photographers. Thank you, Chicagoland Awards, for making our week!
Happy Valentine's Day Soben Family! We wanted to use this holiday of hearts and kisses to share some things we love most, and at the top of our list is our amazing client family! Before we get into the amazing end-of-year slideshow featuring of all the fabulous and adorable faces we got to capture this year created by our leader extraordinaire, Laurie, we thought we'd give you a snippet of us, and some things we L-O-V-E!
Laurie Loves: Valentine's Day is the birthday of Laurie's beloved grandmother (98 this year!), so this day is special in two ways for her. She loves making Valentine's boxes with her children, strong coffee in the morning, and the ever-elusive jeans that fit right all day without getting looser as the hours go by (AKA the unicorn of all jeans). She also loves working with Jenn, Ellen and Jenny ... everyone that we meet through the studio!
Jenn Loves: Jenn loves any and everything homemade, as long as it's not the clothes she's wearing. :) Her family has a big bin of clothing and fabric discards (endless pairs of ripped leggings frequent this box) that her daughters use to make fun, crafty items with, and she loves seeing what they've dreamt up. She also loves fill-in-the-blank notes from her girls, such as, "My mom is the best at ____." Such sweet and funny notes come from these! Also, a little dark chocolate is never wrong by Jenn.
Jenny Loves: Dr Pepper! She knows she should start with something like, "My adorable daughter and newborn son," but honestly, Dr. Pepper comes to mind first. She also loves dance parties to anything with a strong hip-hop beat and trying to think up more appropriate lyrics when her daughter is asking what they're singing during said dance parties. She also loves six hours of consecutive sleep from her newborn, hair that is freshly touched up, and books that you can't put down.
Ellen Loves: SLEEPING! She also loves her hazelnut coffee, and Starburst candy... as she should. Because Ellen is just as sweet as those delicious candies!
So, having covered what we love in our own homes, here's what we love at work: YOU!!!
Please enjoy this slideshow of our 2015 moments, we so enjoyed living them with you all and cannot wait for 2016's new ones!
xoxoxoxo Laurie, Jenn, Jenny & Ellen!
