A Quiet Victory | Chicago Family Photographer

As we mourn the innocent lives cut short by the recent unimaginable tragedy in Connecticut, and as our hearts go out to the survivors, families and friends, we hesitate to get excited over something as relatively trivial as an award. The shock may be dissipating, our collective wounds beginning to heal, but we remain raw.

While our emotion cannot be compared to that of the community of Newtown, we hurt to the core and we are forever changed.  Hopefully out of this tragedy, will come wisdom and change - change that will make this world a better and safer place.

In the meantime - and it is cliche - we are reminded to cherish each day and make each moment an indelible memory.

As photographers that it what we seek to do.

It is with heartfelt appreciation that we humbly announce that Soben Studios has been named Friendliest Family Photographer in Chicago's Totally Awesome Awards, thanks to you, are loyal clients and supporters. We are excited and honored, especially to be recognized among such a distinguished group of fellow photographers.

To celebrate our award and thank our supporters, Soben Studios will be announcing a very special event next month, so stay tuned...

Until then, share some extra hugs with loved ones and fill your homes with much laughter. -LN
