Sister Sister Chicago Child Photographer


These two have us smiling ear to ear every time we photograph them. You will remember these sisters from a past blog titled "We Love Sisters". Their laughs are contagious and who doesn't appreciate a good laugh! During their outdoor portrait sessions the girls are constantly hugging, smiling and holding hands. It melts your heart!! We never want their portrait sessions to end because we adore their super sweet and positive energy. 

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.

New Baby New Big Brother Chicago Newborn and Family Photographer


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! 

We Love Sisters! Part Four Chicago Family Photographer


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!

Giggles, Hugs & Family Fun | Wilmette Family Photographer

When I reflect on this family session, I am reminded of the fabulous Shel Silverstein poem Hug of War. I will not play at tug o' war. I'd rather play at hug o' war, Where everyone hugs Instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles And rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, And everyone grins, And everyone cuddles, And everyone wins.

What a wonderful day, and wonderful family.
