Ava in pink = “all the heart eyes”! And isn’t she adorable in this precious little mouse headband, too?!? My girls loooooved the book, “The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear”, and this headband flooded my heart with memories of the many nights reading to them. Sweet Ava, I wish you endless nights with Mommy and Daddy, reading and laughing and playing. Sweet dreams, Little Mouse. <3
Stella is a beautiful, tiny, delicate little love. She has an angel watching over, and an incredible amount of love surrounding her. It was a joy to capture this sweet baby girl!
Anthony’s handsome features and adorable expressions filled his gallery with sweetness! High brows, grins, puckers and pouts…I think I smiled the entire session watching him through my lens. Sharing many of my favorites to brighten up this dreary Chicago area day!Lilly
This session…oh my…so many emotions. First of all, Mama is an INCREDIBLE wedding photographer, and seeing her work put my “pre-session” jitters into overdrive! Then the family arrived, and there was an incredibly strong sense of joy and love in the air which instantly calmed the nerves. This beautiful boy, Lance Jr….aka Lamie!, was an angel for his session. Instead of watching as she thought she would, Lamie’s Mama relaxed and napped in the family room, trusting me with her greatest gift. This is not something I take lightly, even after nearly nine years! I’ve had the honor of watching Lamie grow via Mama’s instagram account, and he’s only getting cuter and cuter as the weeks go by. Hard to imagine, right???
Yes, babies CAN be expressive. Yes, babies CAN smile. Yes, babies CAN stare down the camera. hehehe Rafael had lots of adorable expressions and fantastic eye contact during his session! And those cheeeeeeeksssss…YUM!
The love and tenderness in the air during Noelle’s session left me longing for the days when our ladies were new souls. To fill your arms with perfection is a gift, and you could feel the sense of gratitude… And this sweet girl was a dream to capture. Delicate and feminine, and perfect.
Zayan is incredibly blessed to be surrounded by a positive energy and light obvious to all who meet his family. I admit to some squealing when Mama emailed to say #2 was on the way and she’d like me to capture her new addition. YAY! This is a special bunch, and he is a beautiful new soul. <3
Grace was a delight to capture at her newborn portrait session. She smooshed and posed just right, and won me over with her perfect fuzzy hair, beautiful skin, and yummy little rolls. It is during sessions like her’s I have to remind myself to stop snapping away and end the session – time flies when you are having fun! :)
