3 little monkeys | Wilmette IL Children’s Photographer

There is never a dull moment with these three little monkeys. As you could tell from the pictures we had a ton of fun during our photo shoot.  I actually really love photographing siblings because they are usually each other’s best friends and have the best chemistry, they help each other loosen up and get their sillies out which translates for amazingly genuine smiles.

Ryan turns one | Northfield IL Baby Photographer

A few months ago I got to photograph baby Ryan for his first birthday milestone. His parents brought a very special traditional dress that he wore, and looked very handsome in it.  Though he was not too keen on wearing the hat that came with the outfit.  He was one serious little dude.  I was so surprised when Ryan had no response to my silly songs and noises I usually make to make little ones smile (maybe I’m not so funny after all, hmmm). The only thing that got him a little more excited (and to stay still for a bit) was my phone which I used to play music. But the difficult part with that was trying to take the phone away in order to get some pictures without the device in his hands.  He sure made us all work during the session!  In the end we got some very cute shots. Mission accomplished.  😉
