Neighborly vibes | Wilmette Family Photographer

It’s been a few years since I saw this awesome family, partly because we’ve moved out of old neighborhood and partly because the N family just took a little longer to get their family pictures done. 🙂  As it turns out, we were neighbors for about five years and our kids used to always play outside while mom and I had some much needed adult conversations (I was a stay at home mom back then so you must understand). I miss my old neighborhood and these lovely neighbors.  They are a fun bunch for sure!

Expecting first baby | Northbrook IL maternity photography

Being relatively new to the area, these new parents wanted to have their pictures done close to home in order to start growing roots and making new memories. We chose a serene nature park with a sprawling prairie, wild flowers, and walking paths that were quite easy for the mama to be to navigate.  Sun was setting just behind the horizon and offered a beautiful golden light that illuminated the trees with its soft glow. My absolute favorite time for portraits.

Here are some of my favorites from this sweet maternity session:

N & C Maternity | Wilmette IL Maternity Photographer

I was so happy to play a small part in Natasha and Carolyn’s journey to motherhood. They were (already had the baby as I write this post!) expecting their first child and it was such an honor to photograph this special time in their lives!

I am so grateful that my job allows me to share in a family’s happiest and most memorable times in their lives. I am constantly surrounded by so much joy and love and that is truly a gift!
