{Matthew T}

Thank God for little boys! Matthew was my subject this morning, and I couldn't have asked for a more sweet little guy. And quiet the photogenic little gentleman, too. His eyes alone just BEG for the camera! It was a ton of fun chasing him around with the camera while mom and auntie danced and played for his smiles :)

{Chicago Cares Sneak Peak}

I was so very excited to photograph my second event for the organization Chicago Cares. This one was even more fun than the first! I was hired to photograph various classes at Saturday morning academy on Chicago's West Side. The kids learned about "World Food & Culture" with a Kwanza celebration, learned writing skills in "Write it Out", and also had art projects as well as computer skills. It was quite a work out running up and down stairs between classes :) And, how cool was it that I ran into my downstairs neighbor who was a volunteer for this event - what a nice surprise!

{Phil Sneak Peak}

I had the pleasure of photographing a "Well Wishing - Good Luck" party for a very cool dude yesterday night. Phil Doran was the Man of the Hour, and as you can see below......he is VERY well loved by his co-workers, friends and family :) He's the dashing man in the Cubbies Jersey. Here are a few highlights from the evening.

I'll be compiling a scrapbook from the nights events as well - there are a TON of great photos to choose from! Best of Luck to you Phil! I hope things transition smoothly to your new home at Misericordia :)

{The Arnold Family}

The Arnold Family has a great tradition of hitting up Winter Wonderfest at Navy Pier every Christmas season - what a perfect place for Holiday family portraits! There were lots and lots of people around, but we were able to dodge the crowds a bit and capture some great, festive family moments.

{momfia sneaky peaky}

Today was a great little photoshoot! Even though it was chilly outside, it was nice and toasty warm in the Garfield Park Conservatory. The Momfia is an amazing group of women who were lucky enough to find each other through a regular Tuesday playgroup on Chicago's North Side. We were all playing in the Children's Garden, and I was able to steal each kiddo away for a quick shoot in the Holiday Show Room. Zillions of poinsettias and lights galore! Merry Christmas indeed :)
