Oh my heart. This sweet baby girl is basically the poster child for a happy baby. If I had a penny for every smile and coo she blessed me with during our session together I would be very a wealthy woman. She is just to loved. I could see that with every look from her adoring parents.

We headed to west town for a little urban session, which was a very fun experience. Plus I got to indulge and shop around this amazing Chicago area. I am a big fan of all types of art, the fact that we got to incorporate this incredible mural was exciting for me. The colors and textures were stunning. This family in front was just the cherry on top.

Catching up on my blogging, and this family has been a part of my photography journey since the beginning. They have grown into this beautiful little foursome. My husband and Ian, the dad have been friends since high school. That’s a long history and seeing each other’s kids grow up. Our daughters are even a few days away with birthdays. And actually I was at her first birthday pregnant and uncomfortable, then gave birth like a day or two later. How crazy is that.

For this session we got lucky with the perfect early morning calm skies and wind day. Actually I think we all worked up a sweat. It’s always an honor to capture their love.

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 babyhood.

This sweet little lady was mostly all smiles. She’s learning to balance when she seats, and is so aware of her brother’s presence . Looking over at him every time she could. I’m looking forward to seeing her one last time this summer.

Sometimes you get so lucky!

So living in the middle of suburbian Chicago always leaves me uninspired to be frank. I’m constantly bugging my clients to head out to the beautiful outskirts of this State, most times this isn’t possible. Well when it comes to rad friends that encourage adventure and that want a different type of approach to their maternity images, I have to wonder. How did I get so lucky?

The location is Starved Rock state park. We headed out in a lovely October warm morning. While it was foggy and wet the boys just loved being able to explore and check out their environment. Of course, because of the way I work, that is just pure gold for me. I want them to explore and be their goofy selves. I love this family so much, they picked up a ton of fall treasures and have now welcomed a fourth boy into their family stay tuned for that blog post.

It feels like this was the calm after the storm. I captured this little family as they welcomed their baby at home 2 weeks prior to this image. In reality, this is probably the beginning of a new storm, a beautiful one at that. Angela, however, seems fully equipped to deal with the toughest of storms. The way she so calmly gave birth and the way she treats her oldest, I know for sure she is so ready for the new sweet baby girl. This whole family is just inspiring. They welcomed me into their home, and I just felt so incredibly comfortable. They made my job effortless.

Sometimes we get lucky like that! I wish them all the best as they start their new journey as a family of four.
