{Grace J.}

I met David & Lindsey through my cousin a few years back - I think I was pregnant with Liam at the time - and they are certainly some pretty cool peeps. I was over the moon when Lindsey contacted me to take some family photos along with portraits of sweet One Year Old Grace. It was a fabulous afternoon in Millennium Park (or at least it was for the hour we were there!), and we had some great conversation along with a pretty nice stroll. Thanks again for the great afternoon!

{Retro Pin Up - Females in Focus}

The photography group "Females in Focus" is so many different things for me - not just a way to get out and shoot more. It stretches my creative boundaries, gives me an opportunity to photograph subjects that I may normally not have on a regular basis, and most importantly, gives me an opportunity to befriend some amazingly creative women and learn from them in the process! This particular shoot I learned more about studio lighting and set up...which is something I will forever need work with! AND, I got to utilize a REAL studio :) It was so much fun! Thanks to Gina & Karen again for organizing, and to our models Carolyn, Sunny & Beca!

These previews are pretty tame. It really was a Pin Up / Boudoir shoot - you can always see more at Flickr!

{Lily M.}

Although Spring is so close to springing here in Chicagoland, it is still a bit too drab to shoot outside. Thankfully, little Miss Lily brought all the Spring, flowers and sunshine we needed inside with her big smile and cute little dress! Lily is one year old, and every bit a sweet little girl. Thanks to Mom & Dad for inviting me in their home to capture her on film, and for popping in for a few photos, too.

{Bobby C.}

More one year old madness! Bobby is such a sweet little man, with a dimple & baby blues that will melt anyone into a big, pile of goo. Seriously. He was full of smiles and laughs and loved dancing around to the music :) Definitely made for a fun morning for me! Happy Birthday Bobby!!

And, my favorite part of his outfit......these AWESOME kicks!
