Our little friend Annabelle started our session together last Saturday by giving us her best serious look. She was fixated on Mike, for whatever reason, this time around, and wouldn’t take her eyes off of him. In the end, he won her over and Annabelle gave us her top model smize. She just gets cuter and cuter, this little one. It was great seeing you again, Elizabeth and Kyle! Thanks for a great time.


Almost time for twins!

Mike and I had the best time with Megan, Dave, their two cats and their soon-to-be-born twin boys last Saturday morning. Oh my goodness..twins! The excitement and anticipation was palpable and so much fun to capture on camera. It was so special for us to share in Megan and Dave’s excitement and I already can’t wait to meet the boys in about 10 more weeks! Best of luck, Megan and Dave. Thanks for such a great time. We can’t wait to hear the good news!


Konner and Joseph

Mike and I got the biggest kick out of these two brothers last Sunday morning. Konner kept us on our toes, showing us all of his favorite toys, books and puzzles, while Joey gave us his very best serious “smize.” These boys really couldn’t be any cuter and we had so much fun. It was great to meet you, Amy and Brian!

Meet Sameer

I say it time and time again, but it doesn’t make it any less true: my favorite part about my job is getting to watch my families grow over the years. It’s incredibly special to be included in intimate family moments and to witness their joy as a friend. I’ve been waiting for last Saturday’s session for months…having been excited to meet Leena and Caleb’s baby ever since their fun baby bump session last November. Sameer is incredible. So alert with big, beautiful eyes. I couldn’t get enough of his fuzzy head of hair or his great expressions. A top model, indeed.  This session was especially sweet as we were able to include Sam’s proud grandma, Leena’s mom, in some of the photos. Congratulations again, Leena and Caleb. Sam is just perfect! 

Liam: Chicago’s biggest sports fan

I had the best time with little Liam last Thursday. He was full of smiles and modeled all of his favorite sports gear for me. I can’t believe this little squirt is already 6 months old! Love getting to watch him grow up. Thanks for another great time, Bri!
