Baby Savanna

In-hospital sessions within the first 48 hours of new life is not something I do very often, but LOVE when I get to do it…  It’s totally crazy how much they change in those first few days.  It’s almost like you can see them changing right before your eyes.

Here’s a glimpse into Baby Savanna’s first day out of the womb.

I Heart Seniors | Highland Park Senior Photographer

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…  I totally love working with seniors.  They are awesome.  They want to be there, you don’t have to bribe them with smarties or chase them around, and they come with bags full of awesome wardrobe and accessories.  What’s not to love?

Here’s Devan.  And although she wasn’t technically a senior anymore since we took these right after graduation, I’m still counting it.

Baby Callahan – {Chicago Newborn Photography)

This little dude was as cool as his name. Cool, calm and collected at all times, sleepy & beautiful. And his first-time parents were equally as cool, calm & collected. And probably sleepy too – but you’d never know it. They were making it all look easy.

Love at first click | Wilmette Family Photographer

You gotta love when a sister/brother combo loves each other this much!   There was no hesitation when asking them to get close, go cheek to cheek and snuggle in on each other and I totally LOVE when that happens.  So easy to tell that their affection for each other is genuine and their bond is strong.  And that goes for the entire beautiful family.  Their connection was so easy to photograph and they were so much fun to work with.

HAPPY 2016! – {Chicago Family Photographer}

It’s honestly pathetic that I have had exactly 5 postings in this blog since 2015! And if you look back, this is the same family that I featured in my Happy 2015 post! What can I say? I love these 3!
