Valentine Mini Sessions | Chicago Baby Photography

Valentine Mini Sessions | Chicago Baby Photographer

Hi friends! I can't wait to get this Valentine Mini Sessions started for you all.

Mini sessions in general are so fun, but what's better than a Valentine Mini session? For the past several years, I've been wanting to put together a something like this, especially for so many of you that have come to the studio! In the past it's been hard to find the time to plan, and put something like this together, and I can now finally release the information for it!

I love the simplistic look of the white backdrop mixed with the contrast of the red rose petals. I used real petals for the mini session below which I felt brought a nice detail to the photos. I have listed below the information about when, where and how much. Clients that sign up before Thursday January 25 will receive the discounted mini price. The full amount is due at the time of booking to secure your spot. Please note that if you have an unpaid deposit, that I wont be able to hold your time slot for you. You can pay either through Zelle Quickpay or Paypal! Please email me at abigail@abigailjoycephotography.com for the full signup and information email to get started with your booking:)

PS. The red velvet dress is available to use in the studio along with some other beautiful dresses, just email to see the collection! I can also help stylize your mini session if you need some guidance on clothing options.

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!

As a Chicago baby photographer, I'm so used to the crazy, the unknown, and the surprises. But the surprise of this 90 Degree weather is one that I can barely understand!!

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.

Because Spring is totally amazing!

Can you believe this session? I can't believe it's already spring in Chicago. Please please please let this prettiness stay...I heard it *might* snow sometime this week?? Gosh, I hope that was just a cruel April Fool's joke. I've decided I'm in love with being a spring family photographer!!

So, please, let it stay spring in Chicago. I wish I could photograph all of my clients here, but I am not sure the flowers last long at this spot. Don't you think the blue is just the most beautiful backdrop? Especially with those lovely yellow buds on the trees. Don't you want your family photos done here?

Family photography in Chicago brings surprises!

Every year, the colors and the scenery will change. Every year I don't know what to expect, and hope for the best. In this case, I was amazed at how beautiful and saturated the spring colors of this session were! This amazing family used me as their spring family photographer, which I'm sure they were happy with the amazing results:)

I knew coming in that I would be able to get some spring colors, and I remembered that the flowers were blooming these weeks, but every so often the weather and plants just like to play cruel jokes. This time, I arrived to find the most beautiful colors just popping out after the long winter melt.

Where did I photograph this spring family session?

I didn't want to give it away, but of course it's not a private location so here it is! I actually shot this at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. This family met me near the gates where I led them to this patch of color that I knew was amazing, and even though it's not that big of an area, and only lasts for about 2 weeks through the spring bloom, we made it work. It had such amazing results too. It's just super hard to catch it before the bloom disappears!

Check out this amazing family's spring photoshoot! I think they did an amazing job coordinating their colors, and with the flowers. Or maybe that was just a coincidence;)

I'd love to be your Spring family photographer!

As a spring Family Photographer, I find beautiful locations with great color and character. This provides the beautiful backdrop that your family deserves. Family Photography is a great way to celebrate the growth and changes in your family over the past year, and spring is one of the best seasons to represent that newness and change!

Say hello to this handsome baby! Luke just turned one. I have been meeting with his family for the last year and I can't believe how sweet they are. One thing I absolutely love is getting to know my clients well enough to call them friends. Throughout this whole last year, I have only met with this family 3 times but I just think they are the sweetest and am happy to have them in my lives.

Check out how much his hair changed throughout the year!!!! Crazy right!? So sweet though. One year sessions, or "Let them be little" collections as I like to call them, are newborn, 6 month, and 1 year sessions. These sessions show off the wonder that is how babies grow, and so fast at that! Little details like hair, can change so quickly and look so differently within months. Luke has changed so much this past year, it was a beautiful thing to witness.

Not that this parallels, or perhaps does...but I saw the new Beauty and the Beast last night. I not only balled my eyes out, but got to thinking that what was so similar in the story line, had a lot of visual differences in the new movie vs. the old cartoon version. The beauty of the story and the wonderful songs stayed the same but the appearance was new and fresh. And is the same for 1 year old Luke. He will always be sweet and kind and wonderful..but will continue to grow and change in appearance. Its so important to capture it all throughout this life to look back on. I'm just glad to be apart of it.

xoxo,

Abigail Joyce

PS. I still have yet to see the new version of the Cinderella movie, should I go see it? Any other movies I missed? Let me know!
