I adore this family! I photograph them every fall and we always have a blast. These girls are so sweet and funny. We had so much fun running around Big Trees Forest Preserve and trying to dodge pesky mosquitos. I love their matching outfits. So adorable! I love these photos!
This was my second photo session of the year with singer/songwriter Joanna Duff. I loved everything about this session at McDaniel Farm Park. Joanna's beauty just shines through in these photos. I love getting her in front of my camera because it is always an amazing experience. The park was s perfect place to get the outdoor shots she needed. I love how her two photo sessions were so unique. I hope you love these photos as much as I do and make sure to check out Joann's gorgeous music at http://joannaduff.rocks

Newborn photo sessions are one of my favorite things. Especially when the baby is one of my best friends baby and has been so highly anticipated! Baby Hazel did not disappoint for her session. She was such an adorable little newborn. She slept so peacefully but also let me get some photos of her with her eyes open. I adore these photos!
I love when someone wants something different from what I usually photograph. My sister, Jennifer decided she wanted a dramatic portrait shoot that was solely based on the makeup of Taylor Momsen. I was excited and ready for the challenge. Jennifer had her fabulous makeup done by the talented Gaby. It was perfect and exactly what she wanted. We had so much fun hanging out at her house and getting awesome photos of her in her favorite outfits. Jennifer has that gorgeous blonde hair and big blue eyes so I always have loved photographing her. After all she was one of the first people I ever photographed. I love these photos!
I had so much fun taking the B family photos. I was so excited to see them and take some fun New Year's photos. Imagine my shock when HJ took off his jacket to reveal his Big Brother shirt. I was so thrilled that the family session was also a pregnancy announcement! We had so much fun running around and playing. HJ has the cutest smile and he loved mugging for the camera. I love, love all these photos so much. I can't wait to meet the new Baby B in a few months!
I have been so excited about sharing these photos. This was such an awesome morning at Wittier Mill Park. I absolutely loved hanging out with this family. We had so much fun. These kiddos are high energy and as cute as they can be. They are pros at getting their photos taken. Their smiles and beautiful eyes just make me melt.
I had so much fun taking Harrison's one year photos. It seems like it was just the other day I was cuddling him at the hospital. I love watching these sweet babies grow up and develop a personality and characteristics that are so unique. The day of Harrison's session was so cold so we did most of the photos inside their lovely home. Thanks to my awesome assistant Rachel we even got their dog, Bacon in on the photos. Check out these adorable photos of this cute little one year old and his family!
I know I have shared many photos of my beautiful friend Mandy Young and urged you to check out her amazing story. Well here is one more! She spoke Friday night at a Christmas Gala. It was so inspiring to hear her story. She has been through so much in her life but she has such a positive attitude and is always happy. She is really my hero and I want to be more like her. If you ever need a speaker for an event contact her because her story will amaze you and change your perspective on life.
