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 :)

Little sweetie | Chicago newborn photographer

I photographed this sweet baby girl and her lovely parents about a month ago and had every intention to blog it. Then Fall happened, and I got so busy with family shoots that I haven't had time to blog anything! Here are a few highlights from their session. I love the shots of mom and dad with baby. And you've gotta love a dad who brings a bat girl cape for his little girl!

Sisters! | Chicago family photographer

I seriously couldn't stop smiling the entire time while I edited the photos from this session. The girls' expressions are just so cute, and the interaction between the two of them was adorably funny! We did this shoot on a beautiful mid-September day at one of my favorite spots, Ryerson Farm in Deerfield. The girls had a lot of fun during the session, especially when they got to take a few photos with their grandparents :)

A perfect summer morning | Chicago family photographer

We did this session on the most perfectly gorgeous July day at my clients' home in Evanston. It was sunny, high 70's, and not the least bit humid, a rarity in summer in Chicagoland! I love Evanston—all the houses have so much character—and I was totally psyched to see a front porch swing when I pulled up to this house :)

Crazy as it seems, fall is just around the corner. I'm now taking bookings for fall family sessions. Contact me to reserve your session or for more info. Thanks!
