Friends Forever Chicago Family and Child Photographer

We have been loving on these two since they were babies, so having them for a session is always a treat.  They are close in age to Laurie's own children, so she gets to catch up on the important topics like Minecraft skills and art projects when they visit. Always a great day photographing such polite, funny, and loving kids!

Three's Company Chicago Family and Child Photographer

One of the best parts of photographing babies is that sometimes, we get to watch them grow up and see their families change and grow.  These three are so much fun, and we have been capturing their moments since the oldest was a baby! How special, to see an entire family form and grow in front of our lens.  Love these funny, silly, sweet, and adorable kids!

This family is nothing but amazing in front of the camera!  Not only are they simply gorgeous, but all this  love for their adorable baby is heart-melting.  One whole year of being parents and a family of three is so special, we are honored to capture such a sweet time in this family's life.

Remember this guy with the gorgeous eyes from THIS post awhile back, and our last two posts in July?  Well, he's a big brother now and his baby sister is just as darling!  He's doing a wonderful job as a big brother to that little sweetie swaddled up in his arms, and melting our hearts.  We love getting to know our families as they grow, and this family has been so fun to watch grow in love and numbers!

Our last post of these sweet sisters ends on some forest dancing, which we think is a pretty fantastic pastime.  We adore these little dolls and their best friendship, and had so much fun capturing such a sweet time in their lives!

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!

This is for you, Mom | Chicago Northshore Children's Photographer

G, you are fortunate to have such great kids! You'd never know that A is somewhat of a tomboy. She looked lovely and at-ease in her "girl" clothes, and W, you look so handsome! If only I could get my boys into something other than t-shirts and track pants - without an epic fight. Maybe it's the "we're in this together" twin thing (yes, this brother-sister duo share the same birthday), or maybe its a testament to their devotion to mom and dad, but whatever it is, we found it to be a delight to photograph these kids. How glad we are that our mutual friends, P, introduced us. See you next year. - LN ChicagoChildrenPhoto2
