Baby L: two years old. not so much a baby anymore.

This little dude is about to turn 2!  That wasnt the only reason they wanted to take photos – they just left to go sailing – indefinitely! They left their home here in chicago and are out at sea as we speak! We met up after eloise’s shoot a few weeks ago for a mini session, also at wagner farm. Sending lots of love and happy vibes to this family as they embark on this adventure at sea!

henry and charlie.

I have neglected posting lately, but I have been shooting! Fall is gearing up to be a busy time as usual so Im going to try to use this calm before the storm to get caught up.

I photographed charlie last fall, and now he is a big brother to baby henry!

elise + dimitri.

Elise and dimitri are back on the blog! This time we took fall photos in the old town neighborhood. It’s so crazy how quickly these kiddos change and grow – I had just seen them a few months ago, over the summer, and they seemed so much more grown up already!

fall mini sessions.

As seen in the last post, I offered fall mini sessions a few weeks ago. I had six families come out and do photos that day at loyola beach. Below are some highlights from that day! I shot some families for the first time, as well as some of my previous clients. Was a very busy, very lovely day and im so thankful for all those who came out!

liam and mara.

zoe: 15 months.

A few weeks ago I met zoe and her family in millenium park for photos. Zoe was a dream to work with. Not only was she totally adorable – she was smiley and happy the whole time. Zoe lives on michigan avenue, so it was super fun to take photos right in her “front yard.”

dimitri and elise.

It has been an absolute joy to work with this family three times! I first took photos of elise when she was 18 months in the fall. Then in February, her brother Dimitri was born. Now Elise just turned 2, and her brother is 3 months old. He certainly has changed alot in the few months since I’ve seen him last! He was still alert and happy the whole time – and Elise is doing a fantastic job as big sister!
