Catching up on October blogging…

OMGoodness, can’t believe it’s already November!  This fall has flown by so quickly and I’m thankful to all of my clients who have kept me busy and helped make this one huge blog post!  I always tell myself that I am going to be better about blogging, but alas, it never happens.  So, here’s my quick catch up.

To all the families featured in this post- I apologize for not writing an individual post for each of you.  You’re all fabulous and I heart you all!  But, I just know that if I took the time to write commentary on each one because I slacked so long, I’d never finish… this year at least!

Milo is One! – Wheeling Birthday Party Photographer

N Family – Long Grove Family Photographer

This little girl was just the sweetest!  Not only is she adorable, but she is one tough cookie!  We took the N Family’s pictures in Long Grove, where the walkways are cobblestone and uneven terrain.  Despite the fact that she fell and skinned her knees twice, she was up and ready for more pictures with the biggest smile in less than a minute!  What a trooper!  Aren’t her blue eyes the prettiest?  🙂

A Family – North Shore Family Photographer

This little guy was turning one just a few days after our shoot.  He’s so loved that his grandparents and great aunt came in from California and Arizona to celebrate with him.  It was a great opportunity to get some family shots along with his first year pictures.  I’m so glad they chose me to capture these special moments between them.  Happy birthday big guy.  Hope it was fabulous!

Y Family

This family was a lot of fun to shoot.  Their daughter, Nidhi, was such a natural and who doesn’t love a family who includes their fur baby in their pictures too!

Hritvi is One!

I took this family’s pictures last fall when this little cutie was just 3 months old.  She was such a little peanut back then, it’s hard to believe she’s already one!  Happy first birthday, Hritvi!

Simon is One!

I took this little guy’s 6 month pictures.  I can’t believe he’s already one!  I just love photographing him and his parents… I mean, they even let me put a mustache on him!


This little guy was the most alert 6 day old I’ve ever seen!  Even after several feedings, he still didn’t want to fall asleep.  We managed to get a few sleepy shots, but most of them were with him bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.  I think it might be safe to say, his parents have a little party animal on their hands.  🙂

L Family

Like a lot of families, time escaped the L family and they hadn’t had family portraits taken in 6 years!  I was honored they let me take their first set of pictures in years.  And seeing how much the camera loves them, I hope they don’t let another 6 years go by before their next family photo.  🙂

B Family – Westfield, NJ Family Photographer

For Memorial Day this year, my parents and I made a road trip to Westfield, NJ to visit my sister and her family and I was able to squeeze in a family shoot over the weekend.  This family was so much fun, and how handsome are these little boys?

L Family – 40th Anniversary

Mundelein Event Photographer

I can’t even begin to find the words to express my fondness for this family.  The L family is like none I’ve ever met before.  Valerie found me through Google and filled out my contact form inquiring about my services to … Continue reading
