Chicago Baby Photographer, Naperville Baby Photographer | Twins

I have greatly enjoyed photographing these twin brothers throughout their first year, as well as getting to know the parents.  I am always a little saddened when clients finish their Baby’s First Year program with me, as that means I won’t be seeing them as often, though hopefully I still see them every year to see them grow and evolve.  At one year of age, these twins have very different personalities.  One is a flirt and easy to smile; the other is more serious and quiet.  However, their moms know the secret tricks to get him to smile for me.

It was a humid morning on this day, full of bugs, unfortunately.  But the boys didn’t mind!  We started off with these absolutely adorable custom-made Cubs uniforms.  Seriously, how cute are they?!  Future baseball players here in the making.  I don’t foresee these guys growing into White Sox fans – do you?

Then it was time for an outfit change and into the fields.  So little Mr. Serious was again being…serious, but then his moms started singing the theme to the Golden Girls, and he got the biggest smiles.  LOL  Who knew, right?  And just as he perked up, his twin wore out and faded quickly.

Chicago Baby Photographer, Naperville Family Photographer | Goodbyes

This family contacted me to do a family session downtown Chicago.  They lived there, but were saying goodbye to their beloved city and moving to the east coast, so they wanted a session that showed the city in the background to memorialize their time here.  Going outside of the Shedd Aquarium made for the perfect spot. You get Lake Michigan as well as the skyline.  It was a beautiful day, and of course, a gorgeous family with their two month old daughter.

As we walked, I asked how they met,  They have one of the best stories ever – it should be an episode of Grey’s Anatomy or something.  She is a doctor.  He is a medical equipment sales person.  They met in the operating room.  She was doing anesthesia, and he was the sales rep. All they could see were each others’ eyes over the surgical masks.   And she thought he had the most gorgeous eyes….so she flirted.  I know, thank goodness she didn’t have a scalpel in hand! LOL  They talked for a while, the case was coming to a close, and he left.  But she couldn’t stop thinking about the guy with the amazing eyes.  She called her brother that night and told him that she had met her dream guy (though she hadn’t even seen his face).  She asked if she should try to “bump into him” in the hospital, but her brother told her not to. He said “if it’s meant to be, it will be!” So the very next day, she was walking into the pharmacy, and she walked right past him.  She had never seen him without a hat and mask, so she didn’t recognize him at first. When she walked back out of the pharmacy, he was waiting for her. He asked for her number that day, and they’ve been together ever since:)  Seriously – is that not an awesome story?!

I really enjoyed this family, and I’m sorry that I won’t have the opportunity to photograph them again since they have moved far away.  They actually moved two days after our session.  I hope they have a wonderful new chapter to their lives but always remember their time in Chicago.

Naperville Senior Photographer, Downers Grove Senior Photographer | Beach Bum

This lovely lady here is getting ready to start her senior year at Naperville North High School. A laid back lifeguard, when we met for our consultation, I mentioned going into downtown Chicago and going to the beach, and she was all for it.  I totally see being on the beaches in California – to which she said that is her dream.  I think she would fit right in with her natural platinum blonde hair.  While I hate driving into the city, it was well worth it for these gorgeous early morning beach shots.  And her dress was absolutely perfect for it.  I love the ragged edges.

How gorgeous is this with the city in the background?  And if you look closely, you can see the big Navy Pier ferris wheel on the left.  You got to get in there very early in the morning – but it is worth it.

And of course, we had to get some pictures with the lifeguard stand.  This may be my favorite one.

I love this next picture with the boats.  It is just perfect.  Thankfully, no one minded us hanging out on them.

Elmhurst photographer

 

We had the second part of her session on a separate day in order to give her a different look.  This is more of her every day, casual look.  We went downtown Naperville, and she got to enjoy being in the spotlight while people commented and watched.  She cracked me up, and we enjoyed the gorgeous weather and dodging the other photographers out that day.  It was a busy evening for photographers, apparently.  And she wanted to be sure to get a picture with her awesome heart sun glasses.  Such a diva. LOL

I hadn’t seen this little guy since his newborn pictures, and now he is one year old!  My, how time flies.  He is an entirely different baby now, and one that is oh, so cute and sweet!  Seriously, he had me cracking up because every time I would just look at him and smile, he would bashfully turn into his shoulder and smile at me.  So stinking adorable!  He is a very easy going, sweet baby.  I hope he continues to be like this for the next time I see him.  He also isn’t fully walking, so he was content to just hang out wherever we put him, which makes my job SO much easier! LOL

Happy birthday, little Lucas.  You made my day.

We started off on one of my favorite bridges…and the bashful smiles began.

And I love the mosquito netting – all white and innocent.  And he had fun in it, too.

Hinsdale Photographer, Naperville Baby Photographer | Brothers

I have been photographing this family every six months for two years now.  At first, it was for their oldest son.  Then when he was turning one, they also had baby number two.  Now that baby number two has turned one year old, it will be weird not to see them as often!  I’ve so enjoyed watching these boys grow and develop.  Their oldest son has gone through a lot in his lifetime – foot surgeries to remove an extra toe, low muscle tone issues not allowing him to walk (yet), and now recently officially diagnosed with a rare chromosomal duplication that accompany developmental delays.  While he isn’t communicating, yet, I bet next time I see him, he will have improved with leaps and bounds to keep up with his little brother.  So this session was celebrating both the little one’s first birthday and the older brother’s second birthday.  So many smiles for me and such handsome guys!  I love their very blue eyes.

We started off with a new setup and a new floor, which I’m loving.

Then it was time for the little guy’s cake smash.  He loved it and enjoyed himself.  Half way through, we decided to let both boys in on the fun since it is both of their birthdays.  How cute are they?!
