Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to document a Winnetka lifestyle newborn baby session for the adorable family behind La Petite Plum This momma has it all together. She is beautiful, organized, kind, creative, smart, hands-on with her kids and just plain fun to be around. What I loved most about being with this family, was the love that the kiddos had for each other. Peter and Caroline are two of the sweetest children. Their love for new baby Jack was just plain infectious. I’m not going to lie, I left thinking that maybe, just maybe I could have a third someday!
Her blog, La Petite Plum is a beautiful combination of children’s clothing, clothing suggestions for mom, tips for what to do with your kids, recipes and fun things to do around town. Her kiddos are always dressed adorably, and often in unexpectedly affordable clothing. She does a nice job of including suggestions at all different price points which is helpful for those fast-growing bodies. I’m also loving her recipes lately! As a mom, I am always looking for new ideas for how to get nutritious foods into those little mouths. What is so fun about her, is that most of the time, she is making these recipes with her little ones.
Their home is on the east side of the town, so they get nice light in the morning which is perfect for a lifestyle session. We also had beautiful snow that acted as a natural reflector. Marina’s house if beautifully decorated in the perfect combination of neutral colors and textures. Of course, she dressed her kiddos perfectly too – shades of white, khaki and pale blue.
We began the session in one of the kids room, documenting the siblings together and getting some needed sillies out. Then, we moved to the master, where we did several family pictures and celebrated baby Jack. We finally moved downstairs into their sun-filled family. Here, we documented a few family images again as well as this beautiful mom alone in front of the windows with baby Jack. I hope you enjoy a highlight from their beautiful family session. I really enjoyed getting to know this beautiful family.
