Falling Flakes

There is nothing like a snowstorm to make a gal rush right out into the weather and take a bunch of photos!  Within 48 hours, we had snow, rain, ice, rain and then, for all intents and purposes, a snowstorm.  Oh goodness did I ever have fun tromping around Cantigny in the quiet peacefulness of falling snow.

I'm loving this Winter Wonderland!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Well, 2009 is quickly coming to a close. It's been a wonderful year!  Our munchkins have started kindergarten and are loving every minute of it.  They have started to read which is mind boggling, frankly.  And, they couldn't be more excited about Santa coming in a week.

Thank you to everyone who has been so wonderfully supportive of my new photography business that I started this year.  My passion for taking pictures continues to grow and I've loved being able to share that with my clients.  A special thank you to my clients for inviting me to your homes and allowing me to spend  time with your families, doing what I love most - capturing the essence of who each person is at this point in time.

Wishing everyone all the best for 2010!  Until next year....

Sweet Munchkins

This past weekend I did a photo shoot with V & Q.  Goodness are they adorable kids!  V is 3 and a half and is as articulate as my 5 and a half year olds. Such a little lady! I do believe she chose her own outfit which was just perfect and fancy for our photos.  Katie, V's doll with crazy hair, was also to be in the shoot, though I'm not sure any of those turned out.
Q and I were meeting for the first time and he was such a good sport about the photos.  We all worked together to get his attention and coax a smile from him.  He's on the verge of sitting up but isn't quite there yet so it was interesting trying to pose and balance him (with Mom right there to catch him, of course).

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

A Day at Cantigny

In the midst of 49 degree weather, the R Family and I headed out to Cantigny.  It turned out to be a beautiful day.  We all got chilly from time to time but it's amazing how chasing three kids can warm a person up. I ended up taking off my coat that day!  Right at the end we were all a bit frozen, but the trip was worth it.  We had fun and got some natural shots of each of the kids.  Cantigny is such a fantastic spot for photos. I'll definitely be keeping this on the top of my list for great locations for future shoots!

Thanks to the R Family for allowing me to spend such a fun couple of hours with the kids (and the two of you, of course)!
See you in the warmer weather!

Newborn Baby H

I was very excited to get a chance to do my first newborn shoot.  Thanks to my friend up in Wisconsin for allowing me to "borrow" her baby.  The little guy was such a champion sleeper and was so tolerant of all the moving around we made him do.  His teeny tiny little feet were so precious, as was the rest of him, of course!  It was a challenging day but oh so rewarding!

Sweet dreams, little man!
