Little Miss Serious!

I’m pretty sure I pulled out every trick in my hat to get this little beauty to flash those toothless gums.   She just stared at me with those big beautiful eyes for pretty much our entire time together.  I was interesting apparently, just not funny!  We did manage to get a few smiles, but even still those eyes and cheeks are pretty much perfect grin or no grin!  I loved her momma, what a pleasure working with these two and hope to see them for many more (smiley) sessions in the future!


They grow like weeds…

It’s been a year since I photographed this little beauty.  I have a couple images of her hanging in the studio and couldn’t believe how much she changed in just one year.  She was busy and full of personality….just how I like them 🙂  The family shot is another I could post in the “what to wear” post.  I love their solid brown shirts and her coordinating brown pattern!

This is the last week of summer vacation before school starts for my 3 kiddos.  I may take a bit longer to respond to e-mail and voice mails as I’m trying to spend as much time as possible with them.  My baby is starting kindergarten…how on earth did that happen??

Illinois newborn photographer

Just a note to let you know I will be unavailable until Tues.  My friend and fellow photographer are getting together to shoot each others families over the weekend.   I am over the moon excited to have some images of my family to plaster all over my walls.  It will be nice to let someone else shoot my kids and as an extra bonus I get to be in them too 🙂  I LOVE her work and if I can’t shoot my family, she is who I’d pick so it should be fun!

People say that newborn smiles are only gas….I am a firm believer that those newborn smiles are VERY real!  There is no way this is gas…

I’ve shot so many great sessions this week.  Will share bunches next week!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Yay for Girls!!

I have had a BUNCH of little guys at the studio lately.  All my babies due this month are boys too so it was really nice to have a few little ladies this past week!  Don’t get me wrong, I like boys too (have two of my own), but it was nice to get some bows, cute hats and the color pink in the studio!!  Isn’t she a doll and sooo good too!  Her daddy is responsible for most of these grins!  Thanks to mom for helping with my reflector 🙂  I am spending the entire day proofing, I have been shooting non stop for a week so I really need to catch up.
