OMG, what a cutie! | Chicago newborn photographer

I have a brand new niece and she's the cutest thing ever! I can't get over her cheeks—and that hair—oh my gosh. I had so much fun doing her newborn photos, and she couldn't have made it easier for me. She slept straight through all these poses (and then some) without making a peep. I can't wait to take a gazillion more pictures of her as she gets bigger!

Embracing the chaos | Chicago family photographer

If there's one thing I've learned since I started doing family photography eight years ago, it's to just go with the flow. Let the kids be kids and wait (patiently!) for the right moment to snap a picture. If there's more than one kid in the family, there's going to be some level of chaos—especially if they're my  kids! I know for parents it can feel like total craziness during the shoot, and they're probably thinking, holy cow, we can't possibly be getting any good pictures out of this. But the shoots where the kids are full of energy and having fun always result in the best photos! Really!

Here are a few shots from a Lincoln Park shoot with this very energetic trio and their lovely parents ♥

The sweetest little face | Chicago baby photographer

I had so much fun photographing this adorable just-turned-one-year-old. Look at that sweet little face! She seriously didn't take a bad picture—even her frown faces were cute :) Enjoy!

Lakeview babe | Chicago newborn photographer

For a long time if you'd have asked me if I preferred doing newborn sessions in the studio or in-home, I definitely would have said studio. Photography is all about the lighting, and I never have to worry about lighting in my studio. My strobes are reliable and consistent—unlike sunshine in Chicago!

But more and more I'm really enjoying my in-home sessions (in spite of the often challenging lighting scenarios). I love capturing those real, organic moments between mom, dad and their new little one, like the ones from this newborn session in Lakeview. Enjoy!
