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.

xoxo

My heart is full | Newborn Photographer

I am so blessed you guys. My heart is full. My clients from my first years of being in business are still coming to me for more sessions. This is the ultimate compliment for me. You liked me when I first started and stuck with me… I had so much to learn at first and you took a chance on me. Now I’ve worked really hard the last couple of years to hone in on my skills and you have come back! I love seeing familiar faces throughout the years, it makes me feel at home. I photographed this family two years ago when big brother Grayson was just a little 6 day old newborn. Now he is a big brother to Oliver and it’s all happened right before my eyes.

This one was going to just be mom, dad and baby…but someone wanted to photobomb!

This Cute Session | Chicago Family Portraits

This cute session | Chicago Family Portraits

I blogged about this family a year ago, when baby girl was a newborn. I was so happy they came back for another Chicago family potraits session this past fall season. I love getting to watch my littlest clients grow! She was the sweetest and sleepiest newborn and now she’s walking and standing and talking. She talks and laughs and loves her mom and dad. It’s so sweet to watch this unfold in front of me. And check out those adorable outfits from this cute session! I mean, come on…I’m obsessed. I even asked the mom where she bought her dress from…PS. it’s from Madewell if anyone else is wondering. I want to ask where the whole outfit is from for baby girl…

Anyways, Happy Thanksgiving you guys!

Growing up in Western Springs | Western Springs Newborn Photographer

Did you guys know I grew up in Western Springs? I had the pleasure of growing in Western Springs throughout my childhood! And what’s even sweeter is knowing I’m only 10 minutes from my childhood home where my parents still live. I am able to visit the same uptown area, and walk around the town with my parents. We just the other week went to get Oberweis together on the weekend when it was nice out. Next to Oberweis is the Starbucks I met my now husband at. We met at the counter and he asked for my number. He proposed 3 years later in front of my childhood home in Western Springs. This little town has so many memories for me.

Now living out of Western Springs for the last couple of years I finally realize just how much of a gem it really is. It has really good schools, it’s very charming and safe as well. Anytime I have clients from Western Springs I feel like we have this special bond, because I know exactly what it’s like to be a Western Springer! I would so love to move back if the opportunity were to arise, but for now I will be happy knowing I am just a drive away.

xoxo

90 degrees in the Fall | Chicago Baby Photographer

90 Degrees in the Fall | Chicago Baby Photographer

So, I’m not sure whats typical weather anymore these days, but I know one thing for sure is it’s definitely weird to have 90 degrees in the fall season.

What happens when it’s 90 degrees on any given day? I am definitely still outside photographing sessions. I try to meet clients earlier in the day when we know it’s going to be really hot out though. This session specifically was on a 90 degree day in the fall. We met early at 830 am to ensure some cooler temps during our session. It worked well! There may have even been a slight breeze.

Are you ready for fall?
