North Shore Newborn Session – Nesser Family

I could write a book about my feelings toward this family, and so being their North Shore Newborn Photographer was such a special opportunity. Miss Quinn came into the world at 27.5 weeks and was in the NICU for a long 12 weeks. (12 weeks!!) She fought to be here, fought to stay healthy, and […]

North Avenue Beach Session – Saghny Family

Goodness, I love beach sessions so much. And how could you not with a sweet little kiddo like beautiful little Emma. We scheduled this North Avenue Beach session at sunrise so we could get some gorgeous view of the city in the background before the sun got too high in the sky. I really think […]

High Energy Lincoln Park Family Session – Placek Family

Holy smokes! I forgot how hard the 18-22 month age is for little boys. Well, not for the little boys, but for their poor parents!! This little gunner literally sprinted around the entire time during this session. I can’t imagine how hard he must crash at bedtime. I’d actually be interested to get a pedometer […]

Lakeview Lifestyle Session with Sweet Little Sadie

It’s so fun to watch your friends become parents (it also makes you feel so very old). This momma and I went to college together. She was one of the first friends I made during my second semester of freshman year. We rushed the same sorority, and now, fast forward a million years, and our […]

Picture Perfect Winnemac Family Session – Nicholas Family

I haven’t seen this sweet family in over two years, as I was pregnant with Reese when little Henry was due and too big to bend! But really, I sadly missed doing Henry’s newborn pictures, so I am really honored that they remembered me (Why is Henry so big now?!) In the past year, their […]

Winnetka Lifestyle Newborn Session – Stecko Family

It’s a small world here in Chicago. I met this darling family and after some chatting during the session, we discovered that I went to school with her younger sister! I haven’t seen her sister since we graduated – too funny! What a small world, huh? I love all of the Miami and Ohio grads […]
