Half a year old | Adri De La Cruz Chicago and west suburbs best children’s photographer

6 months have gone by since her newborn shoot. Its crazy to see how fast time flies. What a concept. These little babies wear the time stamp so very pronounced. Their cheeks and chubby thighs, balance and hair growth shot it. Every day is a new change. So don’t blink and capture all of their […]

Starved Rock with my kids | Adri De La Cruz Chicago and west suburbs family photographer

I finally managed to piece together this tiny and imperfect video of my kids at Starved Rock Park. I have been wanting to take on video for such a long time, but I always make excuses for mastering it or at least taking baby steps into learning more about it. Like always, when presented with […]
