Tyler and Piper

It was chilly, dark, and pouring down rain on the morning that I was supposed to take photos for our dear friends Jaimee and Chris, Tyler and Piper. The photos were time sensitive this year, as we wanted to include Chris’s parents, who were wrapping up a visit from Australia. Luckily, Jaimee and Chris’s house has a huge, gorgeous front porch, which allowed us to still shoot outside and capture some dreamy fall colors in the background without getting wet. And, of course, Tyler and Piper brought the sunshine! They are SUCH stars. I can’t get enough of Piper, with her little top model poses and dimples. And even Mr. T couldn’t help but give me his best laughing-smiles. I just love this family so much.  I’ve gotten to know Granny and Grandad during their visits, and will miss them once they head home. Thanks for having me over to capture these sweet memories for you!

Jayhan and Layleh

After having to reschedule our session four times because of rain in September, I was so excited to finally have a nice day for photos with Jayhan, Layleh, Farah, and Praveen! It worked out that Praveen’s parents were visiting that weekend, and I am so glad I could capture some sweet photos that included them. We took a stroll around The University of Chicago’s main quad on a lovely fall day, and shared a lot of laughs. The kids were top models, as usual, as was their pup, Biscuit, who absolutely wanted to be the star of the show. I just love how these photos turned out…thanks for sticking with me through the rain, Farah and Praveen! It was terrific to see you all again.


Tyler and Ben

It’s always a great time with Tyler and Ben! I can’t get over how big they have both grown since last year’s photo session. We had a gorgeous fall day to catch up at Independence Grove a few weekends ago. I love hearing about their ultimate ninja activities and how camp was this summer. Thanks for meeting me, Laura and Andy! I always have so much fun with you four.


Grace and Kaitlyn

LOVE THESE LITTLE SISTERS! I admittedly have a soft spot for photographing little sisters…since I have a sister and two little girls, myself. So imagine my delight when it just so happened I had a second set of sisters hang out with me last Monday! Not to mention they were Grace and Kaitlyn, two of the cutest, most fun kiddos I know. We had a gorgeous evening for photos last week at Half Day Forest Preserve. Perfect temp, perfect light, and Grace and Kaitlyn were all smiles, laughs, and cuddles. Their pup, Louie, was also a top model. We had such a great time together. Thanks so much for spending some time with me, Tracey and Jacob! I just love your family!
