Laila and Kai

Would you look at how big these two are getting? I can’t believe it! Kai just turned one, so this was a good chance for us to not only get some updated family photos but also some one-year portraits of this little man. Both Laila and Kai did a great job on their photo shoot last Sunday, rocking several amazing outfits and giving us lots of smiles. It was great seeing you again, Shilpa and Dan! Thanks for a great time.


Emily and Ryan are getting married

Even had she not told me that she works at my former ad agency, I would have pin-pointed Emily as a stellar Account Executive from a million miles away. From our first (very organized!) conversation, she proved herself to be one of those brides-to-be who can handle a demanding career, planning a wedding, moving into a new house and coming up with some very sweet engagement photo ideas all at once. Mike and I had a great time getting to know Emily and Ryan last Sunday morning. We had so much fun with the two of them and, of course, their lovable pup, Dakota. Congratulations on your engagement, you two, and best of luck with the Ohio wedding plans. Go Bucks!

Love, love the pictures. My very fav is the next to the last as far as a engagement picture. I’m so happy for both of you, and delighted to have you in our family.

Penny at the beach

Penelope was in great spirits last Friday morning when we enjoyed Montrose Harbor, explored the nature walk and splashed around at the beach. Penny rocked three awesome outfits, showed off some killer dance moves and gave me her very best smiles. It was an absolutely perfect summer day, and I couldn’t imagine three people I would have rather spent it with. Thanks for a great time, Mary and Todd!

Rowan turns one

I loved how he clapped for himself every time he went down the slide. And how mesmerized he was, watching the older boys play at the playground, longing to be one of them. Well, Rowan…you’re well on your way! I can’t believe he’s already one. I swear he was just a peanut newborn a second ago. I had such a great time hanging out with Rowan last Thursday at the playground. It was great seeing you again, Travis and Erin!


Linden and Hadley in Lincoln Park

Last Tuesday I got to catch up with one of my favorite families in Lincoln Park. I can’t even believe that little Hadley is already one! I blinked and she turned from a peanut into a toddler…how does that happen?! Both Linden and Hadley did a great job with their photos. It was already sweltering hot at 9AM, and Hadley had just received all of her one-year shots the day before…so neither was comfortable. But, being the top models they were, they pushed through and gave me some incredible smiles anyway. Thanks for another great time, Lynsey and Peter! I just love watching your girls grow up.
