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!

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!

Old Friends

Well here we are right in the midst of holiday season - my favorite time of year for so many reasons. Though there are many reasons why I love this time of year, reconnecting with old friends and families is the top. I get to see so many of my clients that I've been photographing for years, and watch them grow. Here are some previews from a few of my favorite families! These are just some of the shots from our recent mini session event - more previews to come.
