fay, scott, quinn & lucy.

A few weeks ago, I offered mini sessions at loyola beach. This was my third time doing these mini sessions and this awesome family has joined me everytime! I dont usually shoot older kids, and most of my jokes are geared towards 5 year olds….but this family makes it a breeze. They have wonderfuly personality, lots of fun ideas and are so much fun to shoot! They were my first session, bright and early over at loyola beach that morning. I love how this session turned out. Thanks for the fun, guys, and thanks for joining me again!!

Their previous shoots are here and here. Time sure flies doesn it?!

reeya: 9 months.

I photographed Sejal and Viral’s wedding almost three years ago. Now, they have baby reeyah and had asked me to take some photos of her as well. Look at their delicious baby girl! Big brown eyes, such happy, curious baby. I love seeing my clients come full circle like this! Hoping to get to see this beautiful girl grow – alongside her amazing, proud parents.

leilani & marley.

This weekend I met Leilani and her twin sister Marley. They are almost 3 years old. We took photos in a park in oak park on a beautiful summer-y day. The girls were so adorable – we had fun picking dandelions, running around and looking for bunnies and squirrels. Both girls were as sweet as can be, and I had a great time!

family photos. lots of them!

A few weeks ago I photographed one of my past clients, Jodi’s family. Jodi has five other sisters, and between them all there are almost 20 kids! This was really a treat because all the kids were under the age of 12 – so there were a lot of fun personalities to work with. It was a hot, hot august day, but everyone did so great. Jodi and Erik don’t have any two-legged kids yet, so we they brought along their english bulldog named Bacon! Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
