If you live in Chicago you absolutely know that we could potentially experience all four weather seasons in one day. This is when client communication really can make a difference, another of the not so strong suits that I’m working on bettering. During this specific week, we experienced just that, the day we were supposed […]
The beauty of this world can be found everywhere you go! for this beautiful session, we headed to this local coffee shop as well as a walkway. I just loved how spunky and full of smiles this duo was. Heather is a fellow local photographer, I absolutely fell in love between the bond of her […]
The authenticity of this family is just so apparent, isn’t it? I had lunch with the beautiful Jazmine, and she just completely blew me away. She is someone who continuously is doing something to better her spiritual life and the one of her community. They are hella inspiring. Plus the hearts of those girls are […]
Yesterday it felt like a sweet goodbye to summer. Yes, while I know the weather is so unpredictable I felt this overwhelming need to capture these very last moments of summer for my kids. I turned on the sprinkler for about 15 minutes and captured their joy. but let’s be honest there were also moments […]
I taught for the first time! I photographed a REAL FAMILY in their ACTUAL home in front of other 20 + photographers. I was hella nervous, and not to mention, what the rest of my crew doesn’t realize is that I screwed up with Cate (the mama) I gave her the wrong date, and It […]
I love capturing fading baby features. Before long Mr. H will no longer be a baby but a full-on toddler. Those sweet curls in his tiny baby hairs will get more straight and rugged, those chubby cheeks will also deflate a bit, and that sweet baby walk will turn into something more refined and full […]
I’m not even sure what it is about the in-between time of winter-spring that I find so hard to deal with. Yet I am always so grateful for these two, they keep me grounded. Even though this motherhood gig just somehow keeps getting tougher, it also keeps getting more and more beautiful.
I can remember my mom describing my wild antics but only wished there was a photograph to see them, because I know I was wild. I just don’t have the proof of how much :P. I cannot stress enough how important it is to document your kids as they are. The way their silly girn was full of tiny teeth or the untamed baby hair or in our case the gallos, a Mexican word for hairs that stand straight up and cannot tame no matter what you try. Below you can see all of that in my kids. Also my daughter in the way she removed her shirt to match her brothers.
“The best I can say, it’s like this. A man’s in his skin, see, like a nut in its shell … It’s hard and strong, that shell, and it’s all full of him. Full of grand man-meat, man-self. And that’s all. That’s all there is. A woman’s a different thing entirely. Who knows where a […]
In the baby’s room
The city lights are
In the curtains…
Gentle as rain,
Quiet as snowflakes”
