A little time in the sun, commercial shoot| River Forest IL, family photography, Adri De La Cruz

An amazing company reached out for this shoot! So I headed out to these beautiful woods in River Forest IL. It’s such an amazing town. Pay’s family was just so stunning. This little baby was so chill and easy going, she really made my job so easy. Every time she had a moment, dad would put on baby shark and she was all smiles.

One of the most important aspects of my job is making sure I capture families in their truth. & Have their love be reflected 100%. So it was so much fun to capture their love. Also I was so grateful for the cooler sun shine day. In Illinois we really have to be mindful of ticks and other bugs.

I made it, I finally got to see this beautiful boy again.

He was my first hospital birth, my only complaint would be those thin mattresses used for the birthing partner to sleep on, holy ouch. That’s a no from me. lol. How do they make partners nap or even sleep overnight there? I was able to test them out during my birth session with them. While uncomfortable It was still such an honor to see this sweet little guy make his very vocal entrance onto this world.

I couldn’t believe how alert and big he had gotten. I know a ton of my colleagues are not fond of 3 months sessions because babies are not able to sit or do much. But that’s the point!!! (me with my shouty exclamation points) They are this lovely tiny human just needing their moms just as much as a newborn while smiling and cooing and just being rad.

bring on more 3-month sessions, please!

When the email said, “we have two pugs we’d love to include in the shoot” I immediately became beyond excited. Not only am I a baby person, but I think there is nothing better than a pup and a new baby. Dog’s are my jam.¬† This whole session was beyond beautiful, their house was the perfect background.

Baby H was the calmest baby. I didn’t even hear a peep out of him the whole session. I’m still unsure if that’s a bunch of red hair on his head but I sure hope so! On their walls was a text exchange from his parent’s first contact, in it was a conversation about pugs. How they both had one. Sometimes it all starts with a dog, life is so beautiful that way.
