Adeline's First Birthday - Aurora, IL Photographer

Wow! Adeline is already one! I'm always amazed at how quickly my little friends grow.

Sweet Adeline and her parents came by the studio for some fun. We started outside (again - SO lucky to have a nice spot behind my house!) to get some updated family pictures and a couple shots of Adeline in all that green grass. I'm loving my new lens that allows me to get those beautiful creamy backgrounds outside!

Then we made our way back inside for some studio portraits. Adeline's mom had sent pictures of her outfits beforehand, so I was able to decorate the studio around this adorable dress. Shopping for girl stuff is so much fun!

Her mom made her this adorable cake (she had a Wizard of Oz party) and we told her to have at it. She wasn't entirely sure what to do, but I think the cake smash was a success!

Happy Birthday, Adeline!

June's Birthday Session - Aurora, IL Photographer

This girl has grown up so fast! It feels like yesterday she was just a little baby. My daughter has always called Miss Juniper "Baby June", but I think that's going to change!

I loved getting to do another session at the Fabyan Forest Preserve. It's such a beautiful place! We got to do some pictures under the arch and they had these beautiful yellow flowers that made for a perfect background, too. 

Happy Birthday, June!

First Birthday Session - Aurora Family Photographer

It feels like yesterday I was bouncing this baby so her Mommy could eat at a 4th of July party and now look at her! ONE! I love getting to see so many little babes grow up, it's an incredible perk of the job. And seeing how her big sister Annabelle loves taking care of her is just the sweetest. Happy Birthday, Evie!

Aurora Family Photographer - Ryan & AJ's birthdays

These boys are always such a joy to be around. They stopped by my home studio for some birthday pictures and all of us had a blast!

Aurora family photographer - studio session

Wow, I am so impressed with Elena and Jose! Having them in the studio was so much fun; we were able to get so many pictures in such a short amount of time! We've always done outdoor photo sessions before, so I thought I'd try something a little different for their 6th and 3rd birthday pictures and it paid off :)
