It seems like just yesterday I was over capturing baby B’s arrival. Time is not our friend sometimes, babies grow up righ before our eyes. I know Christmas and everything related to this beautiful holiday is so very important to this family. From the small ways in which they gather together to the important way they lead their lives. I see all of the beauty represented for them.

Their story began in a a tiny apartment not far from this Wheaton IL tree farm nursery. Also can we give a shout out to the owners of this place, we are so grateful for their inviting ways. It was fitting that we had a session here. They picked a tree then headed for some indoor warmth, a cup of joe, and hot chocolate for the kids. So many snuggles and memories in between. To say that they are some of my most favorite humans would be an understatement. I look forward to seeing this family expand and grow throught the years.

I can’t believe we are nearing the middle of September. Back in July I took part in this incredible shoot for Dockatot. I only wish I still had little babies to put them in the cute products they have. The Corrigan Family was a part of Day one, I’ll be blogging all of the incredible families here for you all to see. They have two little ones, with the most gorgeous red hair, and beautiful personalities to match. I hope you enjoy their galleries.

Attending this birth was such a joy, and honestly I’ve never seen a more calm birther than this woman. Her peaks were just so controlled and effortless. At least that is how she expressed them. The day outside was just perfection, and this had been my first day birth in a while. It was just extremely laid back. But then the going got tougher. Then I knew baby was close to coming earth-side. Still with her strength she got to ten, and they prepped her for the babies arrival. Hospitals are much more restrictive when it comes to images during birth + active pushing, so I managed to get a few before I was reprimanded. Still I hope you can gather the beauty of this birth from these images. I am so proud of this amazing human, and I cannot wait to see that beautiful boy again!
