Boys in Blue Part 2 Chicago Family Photographer


A family portrait session outdoors quite often turns into family playtime. This mama loves her three boys in blue. The brothers had a ball exploring and running around. Mom and dad also had fun and shared a few laughs during this portrait session!

Simply a Natural Chicago Child Photography


We have been photographing this little boy since he was a newborn. From day one he has been so comfortable around the camera during his in-studio portrait sessions. We provide little direction because he really knows how to give us his best smile. Towards the end of his portrait session he took a break to gaze out the window. Simply a natural in our portrait studio!

All Suited Up Part 2 Chicago Family Photography


During the second half of the family portrait session this little boy decided to take off his suit jacket and explore! There happened to be a school bus parked for the weekend near our portrait location. He loved looking in, seeing his reflection and making funny faces in the window.

Left right kisses for this adorable little guy during his outdoor portrait session. He loved showing off his handsome style while strolling back and forth for his portraits. He did find a perfect location to take a break at the end of the portrait session to sit and relax in the greens!

Baby on the Move Chicago Baby Photographer


We had no problem capturing beautiful portraits of this baby on the move! He was totally content wearing only his diaper during this in-studio portrait session. What a sweet little boy!

Play Leaves Chicago Family Photographer


We love when our portrait sessions turn into play sessions! The best portraits can be captured when the subjects don’t know whey are being photographed. These siblings could have spent hours playing in the leaves together.

Little Brother's Turn Part 2 Chicago Newborn Photography


This little guy was so sweet and happy during his newborn portrait session. We were fortunate to document both awake and sleeping portraits. His big yawns made us smile too!

Celebrating the Big One Part 1 Chicago Child Photography


How fast one year can go by?! We photographed this beautiful girl when she was under 2 weeks old! We love watching our newborns grow up. She was the cutest toddler doing her best to stand up on her own. We provided a little assistance for her though:). She really enjoyed showing off her new tutu in our photography studio too!

Nothing better than photographing at a forest preserve on a gorgeous day with a fun-loving family! The kids also enjoyed holding hands with their parents while strolling along the various paths during their portrait session. Truly a picture perfect day!

What a Sweetheart Part 1 Chicago Baby Photography


She was a no fuss just sweet kind of baby. No socks for this baby…she loved moving those toes and grabbing her ankles. With each new outfit placed on her she had to taste the texture, the baby stage when one wants everything in her mouth including her dress! Those big eyes just draw you in too!

Jumping into Fall Part 2 Chicago Family Photography


Boy do these two cuties love their parents…except when a kiss was shared at the end of the portrait session:)!! This family truly has an amazing bond and these outdoor portraits definitely show the love. The mother daughter bond is just as strong as the father daughter bond! We loved photographing this beautiful family.

Jumping into Fall Part 1 Chicago Family Photography


Outdoor portrait sessions can be some of our favorite sessions when we jump into the fall season! This fun-loving family of four was put to the challenge of who could jump the highest. Their laughter could be heard throughout the park! Both girls were determined to jump higher than their parents during this portrait session. Everyone was a winner in our book!!

Sisters who laugh together love together too. During their in-studio portrait session the sisters enjoyed making one another laugh during the "serious" portraits. We were so entertained by their interactions. A sister will always be there to make the other one giggle and gleam. They are beautiful little ladies inside and out!

Family Fall Fun Chicago Family Photography


We look forward to this family's outdoor fall portrait session each year! We have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph these adorable kids since they were newborns! We love that they are so excited to see us too. Their smiles are contagious! An absolute beautiful family inside and out:). 

Sweet Sweet Baby Girl Chicago Family Photography


She was the sweetest little girl...oh, those big blue eyes too:). We were smitten with her happiness that filled our studio. We enjoyed watching this family interact during their family portrait session. This little darling could not be happier receiving so many kisses from her parents too! 

Family of Three Cuteness Part 2 Chicago Family Photography


We got our daily workout keeping up with the little guy during the outdoor portrait session. We love his energy though! He enjoyed exploring the outdoors and playing beside his adoring parents. We last photographed the family in our portrait studio when he was just beginning to walk. What a difference a year can make! He is such a happy boy too. We are delighted to work with this beautiful family each year.

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.
