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!

holiday special photos: addison and jackson

This weekend I tried something new. I offered 30 minute sessions for a discounted rate and I ended up with five shoots. It was a ton of fun! This time around I did it in the west loop, since its my favorite place to shoot ( its like a constant urban photowalk adventure – i could shoot there ALL day!)…The weather was pretty chilly, but everyone cooperated and put up with it! Thanks again to everyone who came out and made this happen. I’ll be posting the photos here shortly.

First up: Jackson and Addison. Started off a little on the rough side. The kiddos were cold, and it takes a little bit of time to get used to the big scary camera!  But, with a little bit of team work, we got them to run around and be crazy kids and with no time, their little personalities were shining through….
