Proud big sister | Chicago newborn photographer

It was really important to this family that their dog, Callie, be included in their newborn photos. Some dogs kind of freak out when there's a new baby in the house, but Callie was so good with her baby brother and was on her best behavior during the shoot. All I had to do was ask her a question ("Callie, have you been to Colorado?") and she would tilt her head to one side, perk up her ears, and look straight into the camera—adorable! Oh yeah, and they had a super cute baby too :)

Bucktown baby | Chicago newborn photographer

I'm not quite sure how it got to be mid-December already. Fall is always so crazy busy with family and newborn sessions, and then all of a sudden it's a couple weeks before Christmas and I haven't done my own holiday cards or even thought about holiday shopping yet. Next year will be different, ha!  

This is one of my favorite recent newborn sessions, so I thought I'd blog it before the holiday chaos begins :) It was so much fun to visit this family again at their lovely home in Bucktown to photograph their second baby, who was a champion sleeper just like her big sister was at her newborn shoot a couple years back. Both the girls and their ridiculously cute dog were rock stars for the shoot—they made my job easy!

Family of five in Lincoln Park | Chicago family photographer

I met up with this gorgeous family of five on a brisk, mid-October day in Lincoln Park. This is one of my favorite families to photograph. The kids are adorable, the parents are super nice, and they always do an amazing job putting together outfits for the shoot :) I love the color palette they chose, it just says "autumn"—unlike the trees in Lincoln Park which were still almost completely green and holding their leaves halfway through October. But that's Chicago weather, you never know what you're going to get!

"Fall" family photos at Montrose Harbor | Chicago family photographer

This was one of my first "fall" family sessions of the year. I'm putting fall in quotes because on this late September evening it was over 80 degreesbright and sunnyand at 6pm Montrose Harbor was still packed with people soaking up one last day at the beach.  It felt way more like summer than fall!

I photographed both of these girls as newborns, and it was so fun to see them and their lovely parents again :)
