Wow! It has been a BUSY holiday season for me. I loved getting to see so many cuties for my Christmas mini sessions! Here are some of my favorites:
Do you see how cute this baby is? Man, I love my job!
For Kinzie's newborn session, I went to her house with basically an entire studio. But since we were in her home, we were able to do pictures in the nursery and get family pictures in their living room. I love being able to incorporate more lifestyle images into my sessions and especially when big siblings are involved, it's nice that they can just go back to playing once they're done with their photos.
So we got family pictures in the family room, lifestyle pictures in the nursery, and then all the posed pictures on the beanbag, basket and flower bucket were just done in the living room. Lucky for me they have beautiful hardwood floors that make a good backdrop!
I was so excited to have a newborn girl to work with after all the boys I've had recently. I love using soft pinks and purples along with some neutral colors.
Welcome to the world, Kinzie! You are so lucky to have such a beautiful family and awesome big brothers that love you :)
Happy birthday, girls! I've been photographing these girls since they were about 6 months old, I can't believe they're two already!
Four kids can be tough work, but these kids are professionals! We've had so many sessions together, I feel like we're related. And once again, they didn't disappoint! Merry Christmas!
What a lucky girl I am to get to see this family again! And now that Lauren is expecting another, I'll get to see them again in just a few months.
We lucked out with some great November weather and got to do Nolan's 2nd birthday pictures outside. He was pretty excited about all the places to run! And leaves are super fun, too, of course. I'm looking forward to seeing them in February for newborn pictures!
Look at these beauties! Little Evie just turned 6 months old, so of course we had to do a session :)
Mom and sister Annabelle joined us for a few outdoor pictures first and then we came back to the studio to get Evie's photos by herself and some Christmas pictures, too. I can't wait until it's her birthday and we have pretty flowers outside to use for those photos!
Look at these cuties! A certain little someone acted his age during our session, but we were still able to get some great images. I'm loving this forest preserve we used for the pictures on the west side of Aurora. And it was warm enough that we could take the time to do family pictures, plus the kids together and on their own for 2 year and (almost) 10 year photos.
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 :)
She's here! I was so excited to hear that she was a girl, because that meant I got to use all my pink and purple stuff :)
Miss Grace was such a perfect model for her newborn pictures and Sister Ella is so in love with her! I was able to get some shots of Ella kissing her new love and we got family pictures, too. Newborn portraits are my absolute favorite thing to do and having a baby like Grace to photograph makes it even better :)
What a beautiful family! This little boy is SO lucky to have such a great brother and sister that are already so in love with him. I could not have asked for a better family to photograph. Brother and sister were so cooperative and loved holding baby Trevor and talking to him. And for a newborn, he was a fantastic model - he slept the whole time!
Busy, busy! The twins' first birthday and Easter! Would you look at these outfits! SO adorable. Dean and Logan were full of smiles as always, and the girls were all over the place! Easter eggs and birthday balloons are a lot of fun when you're one. We are all looking forward to doing a session outside soon!
This little lady has a knack for taking pictures! Which works out pretty well for me, because I get to test out session ideas on her. She makes a great model!
Boy, did we have a blast with these Valentine's Day photos! It's so much fun to do a themed session, especially with these kids!
