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!

  If there's something better than chubby baby rolls, we certainly don't know what it could be! Our last blog post on this honeybunch is so delicious.  Those little legs and cheeks need to be squeeeeeeeeezed!

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!

Did you catch this sweetie on the blog last week? You'll see him again soon, as we introduce his new baby sister!  This is the final peek at our two-year-old session with him that was all about firetrucks and trains and being the most fun little guy in the studio!  We have known this little guy and his family forever and capturing his silly moments gives us such joy!

This little guy made us giggle at his wonderful one year session HERE, and now that he's two, he's a pro!  He knows to come in and get right down to the playtime!  Don't miss his darling new sister tomorrow on the blog, but for now,  we think he's pretty great at being a big brother and two-year-old extraordinaire!

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!

We love when our friends and clients refer wonderful people to us, and this family was the most fun!  Adorable sisters who are the very best of friends that giggled and played through our session made our day.  We have more from this sweet session the way so stay tuned!

Springtime Dreaming Chicago Family Photographer

We love mixing up our newborn studio time with some outdoor family time, and this family was so fun!  We've known the extended family of these sweet faces as long-term clients, and to meet more of this crew is such a treat.  We loved getting to know these energetic brothers, especially the twin fun they brought along, and it's so cold outside that a spring session looking forward to warmer days makes us feel very happy inside!  Thank you for letting us capture some fun brotherly love in the greenery with you guys!

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!

Introducing: Jenny! New Studio Assistant and Soben Family Member!

New teammate signing in here: I'm Jenny! Yes, this means we have added another Jennifer to the team, but not to be confused with our fabulous studio manager, Jenn/Jennifer.  This is Jenny which is a vastly different name. :) I am so excited to join Soben Studios, lend a hand wherever I can, and to get to know all of the wonderful clients that come through for some memory-making! To properly introduce myself, here are five things about me, and a photo so you can put a face to the voice if you happen to call in while I'm working!

1. I watch too much reality TV. Like...way too much. Too much for any self-respecting Engligh Lit major who also goes to a lot of book clubs. E!, Bravo, MTV (oh that one is embarrassing), you name it, I watch it. Speaking of, I think Teen Mom 2 is on right now... 2. I love to dance! I grew up in dance, was a cheerleader for a million years, and can be found having major dance parties with my two-year-old daughter, Piper in our living room most evenings. 3. I am addicted to Dr.Pepper in a serious, borderline clinical way. When I've given it up in the past, for pregnancy or lame attempts at health, I have pretty much lost all my personality and sense of humor. The world is better when I'm thoroughly full of Dr. Pepper. 4. I am from Phoenix, and would take 122 degree heat over one drop of snow any day! 5. I never, ever, EVER wanted children, then I met my now-husband, and I somehow have a gorgeous little toddler girl, AND a baby boy on the way this winter! He is obviously into witchcraft or something.

That's me in a very small nutshell, looking forward to getting to know everyone in the Soben Circle!
