Mommy to be | Northfield IL maternity photographer

This mommy was all smiles during our studio maternity session. She opted for some classic favorites as well as some romantic shots wearing one of my specialty maternity gowns and a custom crown to match. That color looks so great on her!

Fall Photo Session in the Park

This beautiful family was so lucky to have their photo shoot at the absolute peak of the fall season. The ground was covered with leaves and so were the trees, gorgeous colors were all around us. It was a little chilly already, but the everyone including the super handsome boys did such a wonderful job despite the breezy wind.

Top Family Photographer in Chicago!

It was such a pleasant surprise to discover that I was selected as one of 19 top family photographer in Chicago land by Expertise.com!  What’s even more awesome, is that this was a completely independent nomination, meaning, I did not pay to be included in the ranking (as so many other photographer listing services require).  This just feels extra good to be chosen as the top out of hundreds of photographers, almost like I’ve won the lottery!  🙂

So, what were the basis for narrowing down to the best? As it is outlined on their website, Expertise reviewed 712 photographers and scored them on more than 25 variables across five categories to arrive at their hand-picked top 19 picks. They looked at criteria like: reputation, credibility, expertise, availability, and professionalism.

Thank you for the pick Expertise. Honored to be featured as one of the best family photographer in Chicago!

Sunset family photo session in Lake Forest

I am so in love with this family session!  First of all, I am so glad they trusted me when I suggested this specific location and drove to the suburbs all the way from the city, which is not easy with a baby in tow.  The weather played in our favor and beautiful golden light set the perfect scene.  Sweet baby girl completely store the show with her gorgeous big eyes, cute smiles, and adorable expressions.

Chartrand family, thank you for letting me be your family photographer and for having me document your baby’s big milestone – she’s ONE you guys and learning to walk!  This was truly a gorgeous evening together. You are truly an amazing and beautiful family. I hope these pictures are something you will back o for years to come.

Lincoln Park | Chicago Family Photographer

Love exploring the city with this family. This year we took their annual family photos in one of the most picturesque locations in Chicago (and most crowded with photographers!)  Lincoln Park offers both great views of the Chicago skyline, scenic prairie walks, urban architectural elements, and of course the zoo.  It’s easy to get carried away in this location because it does offer so many different areas to explore, but with some careful planning you’ll be sure to come out with shots your clients will love.
