Big Brother 1 of 2 Chicago Maternity Photographer


What a gorgeous morning to document this beautiful pregnant mama with her boys! We always look forward to spending time with our clients at the beach for our dreamy maternity portrait sessions. The soon-to-be big brother could not have been happier to be part of this experience! The session turned into a fun family playdate. We are thrilled to meet the new baby brother at his newborn session in our studio. 

Beach Family Fun! Chicago Family and Children's Photographer


Who doesn't love a day out at the beach with their family?  We sure do!  We had so much fun with this family at the beach.   It was a little bittersweet as we've photographed this family for years, but they are moving onto to a new place, and we will be missing them!  The day was gorgeous, and even though mom's hair and makeup people never showed (boo!), she and the rest of the family looked perfect! Thank you, B Family, for being a part of our Soben family for so long, and we wish you all the best in your new adventures!

We love to Travel | Beach Ocean Photography

Can't you just hear the sound of the surf? I'm not exactly sure who took this photograph of Laurie and Jennifer shooting on location - literally in the ocean. (Alas, I stayed behind to hold down the fort.)  Needless to say, Laurie and Jennifer had an amazing time at this special portrait session - we do love when our clients bring us to gorgeous (and warm!) locations! While it's not the Atlantic Ocean, we're looking forward to sessions on the shore of Lake Michigan - once the ice melts! In fact, we've already got several booked!- LNFlorida blog
