The Family Photographer | Chicago Family Photographer

During the holiday season, my brother and sister in law were in town and I couldn’t help but get them in front of the camera. After all I am the family photographer for my whole family. Anytime anyone is home for the holidays or just here for a little visit I try to get them in front of the camera. Anyways, they came over for an indoor studio session because hello its -5 degrees in Chicagoland area, lol. So they came over after a big day of enjoying the Navy Pier Winter Wonderland indoor park. I wasn’t sure how it would go, since it was last minute and I knew the kids would be exhausted from such a long day. But they fell asleep in the car on our way home to the suburbs. I was so relieved when they woke up in good moods. Our session took only about 4o minutes and it was pure bliss. We got so many good smiles from the kids. My mom even requested prints asap from me haha. Now looking through these photos I realized how quick those two weeks went when they were in town and I’m so happy we took these photos when we did. Now we will have the photos for a lifetime. I could just squeeze them both!! I love having family around.

2017 Chicago Baby Names | Chicago Baby Photography

2017 Chicago Baby Names

Welcome to 2018! This whole past year I did my best to write down my Chicago baby names I photographed in 2017. While this is not even the half of it, I would love to share with you many of the names of the little ones I have photographed last year! I had such a wonderful year photographing all these precious babies. I also loved praying over each baby for health and happiness either during our newborn session or while I was editing those sweet photos.

Thank you to all my clients that chose me to take part in such a precious and memorable time in their lives. I am forever grateful and thankful for each and every one of you and I look forward to seeing these beautiful babies grow up!

Velvet Dresses | Maternity Photographer


Velvet Dresses | Chicago Maternity Photographer

Hey you guys. Now that this busy busy fall season is over and the holidays are almost over, I can finally sit down and write to you. I met with this gorgeous couple a few weeks ago, who I was able to get to know in the hour that we met for our maternity session. The mom wore this beautiful velvet dress which she told me was from Pink Blush. Pink Blush is a new store online that has dresses, tops, etc and maternity gowns all with the new trends. I was so excited when I saw the dress she was wearing, I mean hello, velvet dresses are amazing. I was curious to see how it would photograph, whether or not it would reflect odd, but it did no such thing and the photos turned out perfect. I am hoping to see more and more velvet dresses for maternity sessions in the future! I think its the perfect type of dress for winter session right now. If you see any awesome velvet dresses online or in store please comment below the link so I can help my mamas to be with their outfit choices for their maternity session. Or if there are other dresses you love that would be perfect for a maternity session please let me know, I love looking for inspiration.


I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas! I spent time with my family and ate lots of cookies. My husband surprised me with an Addi Express machine which is a loom that I can crank to create swaddling wraps and hats (for my newborn sessions) within a few hours instead of a few days of working. Amazing! I can’t wait to try it out.
