This beautiful mommy to be right here!! I mean, come on! It should be illegal to look this good haha! I first met her almost 6 years ago, when I photographed her twin boys as newborns, so I was over the moon to hear that she was expecting again, no multiples this time though, just one handsome baby boy. She had this beautiful orange dress that she wanted to include in the shoot as she told me that orange was not only her favorite color, but that was her favorite dress too so it was a must to include it, and wow I am so happy we did! It looked amazing on her, she is nothing but belly!! What an absolute pleasure it was photographing her, and when her son is born in a few short weeks, I will have the honor of photographing him as well, I can’t wait!
Oh Ryan.. He melted my heart! Ryan Jr. came to see me on his 8th day of life, and was the absolute cutest ever, and was an amazing sleeper. I have done many many sessions over the course of my career, but this one will be one that I will always remember because of Ryan’s “big sister” , the CUTEST Yorkshire Terrier in the whole wide world. She was so calm and loves her little brother already, and just let her mommy put her down right next to her brother and she just sat there! I love this first picture so much that I turned it into a 20×30 canvas at the studio, I am obsessed with how cute the two look! Ryan slept thru the entire session and only woke up once to eat, he was pretty much a dream baby to work with. This was an amazing shoot from beginning to end. I photographed Ryan’s mommy when she was expecting him (see photos HERE), so I am extremely honored that I was chosen to capture their journey into parenthood, and to photograph their sweet boy. What a great job I have. Congratulations to this new family of 3 plus pooch!

It is not only a pleasure, it’s an absolute honor for me when my past newborn clients come back to me so I can photograph their baby for the First birthday shoot. And Darria did not disappoint! She still looked the exact same just taller 🙂 (see her newborn session HERE ) – My clients choose the theme for their sessions, and Darria’s mom wanted a carnaval theme. She gave me her colors and it was off from there! What a happy baby girl Darria was and I was obsessed with her chunky little self! Happy birthday sweet pea!

Families like this one make me so proud to be a newborn photographer in Chicago. This is beautiful Zoe, who came to see me on her 10th day of life. I first met Zoe’s parents when I photographed their first daughter Mira, almost 6 years ago! Then I was hired to photograph their new son Jaxson (see photos HERE 2 years ago, and I was elated to find out that they were expecting little Zoe this Spring!! I love when I get to pose siblings as newborns, because it always feels as if I am posing the same baby 2 or 3 times, it’s really fun! Mira, Jax and Zoe all look just like their beautiful mama, she definitely has strong genes! Zoe was absolutely adorable and slept thru the entire session and only woke up for the sibling shots, and her eye contact was incredible being so young! Her parents are die hard Chicago Cubs fans, (she was named after Ben Zobrist, the 2016 MVP) so it was must to have a custom girls Cubs outfit made by The Knitting Bitty for her shoot, and dad is a firefighter so that had to be included as well! This was a perfect day for a perfect session with the most perfect family, and I am absolutely honored that they chose me for all 3 children. I get to see families go from just the parents to 2 to 3 (sometimes 4) kids, it is so incredible. I absolutely have the best job in the world. Thank you to all my clients who trust me with their memories.

I would like to introduce Bella and her twin sister Brooklyn, who came to see me! These beautiful girls are fraternal twins, and the best is that they were born on two different days in 2 different months, how neat! I usually have trouble distinguishing my twin babies, but it was easy with them, Brooklyn is darker than Bella. Chocolate and vanilla 🙂 The girls were so adorable and absolutely loved being snuggled next to each other, the closer the better actually as it soothed them immediately to feel the other one next to them, it was the absolute sweetest ever. Congratulations to this beautiful family, that grew by 4 feet!
