Don’t you love when things come full circle. I took this sweet boy’s newborn photos and I recently got a chance to see him again and now he’s sporting some quite peculiar and most beautiful red gorgeous locks of hair. I honestly couldn’t believe it. But coming from a family that has a little bit of everything I was just in awe of it.

Did I mention that they are the sweetest little family. Click here to see their newborn session ! I hope I get a chance to capture this little one again and be able to see the progression of him and not going to lie, check in on that beautiful hair.

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.

What an honor it is to continue to see families grow older and older. Sometimes it’s so hard to see time reflected back at you, but when you have been a part of someone’s journey since birth. Well that’s just beyond incredible (find gemma’s birth here) you can see how fast time really does fly, and you wish for a second to stop it. When you’re a photographer you can. That’s why I do what I do. I feel passionate about my ability to stop time. To capture the magic of childhood even for a second. Families like these keep me going. They fill my cup with so much beauty.

Little miss Gemma, I wish you all the health in the world and a gazillion more beautiful birthdays with your parent’s and big brother Lincoln who is just the sweetest kid ever.

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 just pure gold. I got a chance first hand to explore their new adventure with the purchase of their new firehouse, which they have big plans for. I cannot wait to see what more comes from this amazing team. I loved capturing this incredible family. Scroll down to see some magic from our time together.
