Leuber Family, Oak Park IL front porch session

Oh what a sweet and special time I had reconnecting with this lovely family. Just last summer I was present during this sweet baby girl’s birth. Now close to a year after and a whole world of a difference later here I am again. I honestly wanted nothing than to engage with that beautiful baby and get to hug this incredible mama who I’m sure has had a hell of a year. None the less, I am so grateful they are healthy and we were able to make this sweet shoot happen. Big brother E is just as busy as ever, and completely in love with his little sister. I am so exited to keep on following on their journey! and continue to document their love.

TIME JUST FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING FUN! 

I’m in awe of time, still. Even after having my two babies, I can never believe that time actually flies as quick as it does.  I have the honor to capture all of sweet little H’s first year of life and even when he was in his mom’s belly. I am so excited for our next session. take a peek at how much joy he radiates.

No words for the beauty of this family.

Sarah is expecting her second child, and guess what? They are planning a home birth, and I’m  so honored to say that I am going to be capturing that for them. How insanely cool is that? I first met this beautiful family as I offered some complimentary nursing sessions for local moms since breastfeeding is so near and dear to my heart. Sarah brought along the sweet baby boy. I’ve seen them a few times after that, and as you guessed it her baby boy is still just as sweet, and he cannot wait to be a big brother.

While this session was rushed, since we were worried about the weather, I am so pleased with the images we were able to accomplish. They are so incredibly laid back and awesome. Cannot wait to capture more of their story.

Margo. 

or Sprinkles as she was so uniquely nicknamed during her mama’s pregnancy. She was welcomed into this world by a beautiful family. Her brother Miles and bis sister Sophie just adore her. As I approached the door, I was welcomed by my great friend Christine, who immediately apologized by her lack of outdoor house numbers that had me guessing where she lived.  I did manage to find the house, but only because I found big baskets full of gorgeous succulents outside. We have that in common, we both love succulents. Her whole house is full of them in stunning ways, from her tables to the floor.  On her walls you can see memories from days that mark their lives, and she so uniquely has a black wall.  To say that she loves color is an understatement.

I loved the theme for little Margo’s room, Sprinkles and Narwhals, to commemorate her awesome nickname I assume, and narwhals are just awesome. Of course, She slept the whole time, as I was capturing the world around her. One of my favorite moments was when she pee’d just a minute after her new diaper was on. It was so endearing to see just how Miles and Sophie were smitten with the little one. They were incredibly excited when I asked to see their chickens.  We rushed outside and discovered their favorites places. The swing and garden top the list. Sophie gifted me an amazing, big pear that I probably left behind, from a beautiful tree. My whole time with them was an adventure. The love radiated.

I cannot wait to see my photos on their walls. It was truly an honor to be invited inside and get to capture their new adventure as a family of five.

POND MINI SESSION

I photographed this sweet family back almost two years ago. I am so glad, Gina called last minute for my availability. It is really, truly an honor to see the children of your clients grow up before your eyes. I met sweet baby P and her brother at her newborn session. I can say he is still as doting as he was , when he was swooning over that new bundle of joy.
