Simple Pleasures / North Shore Family Photography

S blogWhat a delight it was to meet the S family! Grandma and Grandpa came along for moral support, which proved to be an extra special surprise for me: Grandma was my fourth grade teacher (a long, long, long time ago), and one of my all-time faves! Lucky children to have such a special grandparents, and lucky grandparents to have such wonderful grandchildren. - LN

Our Studio | Chicago Suburbs Child Baby Newborn Family Photographer

Well, it only took me 7 months to blog about our new studio! We've just been so busy taking care of our clients, that things like our new studio space took a back seat. However, I am so excited to share our new digs with you -- the space is just lovely and I can't wait to see many of you there! Our new studio is located in downtown Highwood, directly above a nail salon (how perfect is that!?). We've got tons of shooting space, with a great brick wall to enjoy. By far my favorite feature is our bay window, and it has been so much fun experimenting with the lighting there. The window is fabulous for newborn work, but it really shines with maternity silhouettes.

We've always got fresh coffee and tea waiting for you, great books, and our free wifi. Come see us soon!

Hugs not Tugs

I will not play at tug o' warI'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.

The BEST part of my job

By far, my favorite part of my job is reconnecting with old friends. Photography is a personal profession, and I am proud to say I feel like so many clients become friends. I love to come back, to watch (and to document) the kids as they grow. So when this family called to book a session, I was thrilled. I just couldn't wait to see them again. 

One Hot Mama

I love when my clients are creative (and of course being stunningly beautiful helps, too!). I had a great time during their session, and couldn't wait to proof the images. Special thanks to my new photographer friend Lori Dorman for the inspiration!
