Lifestyle family | Highland Park Family Photographer

Lifestyle sessions are a whole different animal than your traditional studio or outdoor family sessions.  I don’t do too many lifestyle sessions, but when I do, I absolutely love them because people who chose to do a lifestyle session aren’t camera shy and thus give me the most natural interactions, emotions, and smiles.  These sessions are very different in a sense that families must forget that I’m even there with my camera, which is when I capture the most precious moments of love between parents and their kids.  It’s more documentary – a day in a life, if you will.  No gimmicks, no posing, just you.   And this family was just wonderful to work with.  They wanted to capture this time when their twins are still little and life is a little less hectic, if you can imagine. Indonesia .  Super mama was also pregnant during the shoot, so I can only imagine how things have changed for them. 🙂

Kind of in love with this session and these gorgeous kids….  🙂

Olive’s 9 month photos | Chicago baby photographer

Some of my favorites from baby Olive’s 9 month photo shoot this summer.  It’s so great see how fast little ones grow.  Olive looks so grown up compared to her newborn baby self. 😉 Such a cutie. I hope she makes her loving parents very very proud!

Baby Maya | Northfield IL newborn photography

It was so great to finally meet baby Maya. After our spring maternity session with her parents, I was sure that their daughter would be nothing short of beautiful, and I was so right! Even though she was awake for the majority of the session, this girly was so calm, just looking around the studio with her big brown eyes, which I did not mind one bit. And look at that head full of black hear. So gorgeous! You’ve done good guys. 😉

Ganesha, the deity with the head of an elephant, god of new beginnings and remover of obstacles, is very symbolic and I was happy to take some adorable images for the new family.

Ellie’s cake smash | Highland Park IL Baby Photographer

This is the sweetest family and I am so lucky that I had a chance to work with them a few times in the past.  First time we met was when Ellie’s mom contacted me about doing a 6 month photo shoot for their adorable little girl.  Since then, I’ve done two more photo shoots for them including this one for Ellie’s first birthday.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and so we opted for an outdoor cake smash session, with beautiful cake and balloons in tow.  Here are some of my favorite images from this sessions:

Mother’s Day Mini Sessions | Northbrook IL Photographer

Catching up on my blogging over here!

It’s feel like it has been an eternity since I had my Spring mothers day sessions. We had to reschedule a couple times due to the rainy weather here in Chicago land.  In the end, it turned out to be a beautiful, warm spring day and all the beautiful trees were blooming to create a gorgeous backdrop.

Enjoy.
