Mr J and those baby blues certainly keep me on my toes during his sessions. He’s likes to be on the move, but I just adore getting him laughing and capturing those truly happy smiles ☺️

How cute is his puppy Macie that jumped in for some pictures at the end too. I just love that he wanted to include her. It was a mad dash around Round Barn to beat the heat and bugs, but so worth it for this session!

This Mokena Family session was so fun and refreshing. The kids were great and just went with the flow and added bonus they are a gorgeous family!

I loved getting to know them and spend the afternoon with them.

We are so lucky to live in such an amazing city and Lincoln Park offers one of the best views of our cities skyline, the perfect backdrop to family sessions. I met Mr H and his Mom at the zoo and and haven’t seen him since he was 6 months old so he wanted her to take pictures with him to start with.

I absolutely loved taking photos of them together, they were some of my favorite from the session. As Mom’s we don’t often end up in front of the camera and it’s one of my favorite things at sessions to capture those little moments.

It was such a fun session walking around the park to some of my favorite spots.

I am so excited for the K family because I just took their last pictures as a family of 3 because in a few months they will be a family of 5! That’s right, they are getting ready to add a beautiful baby girl and boy to their family. How amazing is that??!!?

Mr Evan was definitely more on the run for this session, but literally stopping to smell the flowers slowed him down 😉 And I just love capturing those mesmerizing blue eyes of his.

I cannot wait to meet his new little brother and sister soon!

I’m so, so excited for the V Family and the future arrival of their baby girl! I just know that Mr A is going to make a great big brother, especially when he currently answers every question with a “yep”. I feel like that can only be a positive sign!

For their session we combined Family, Maternity and just some cute pics of A. His Mommy was looking absolutely gorgeous and I know that she can’t wait to meet baby girl. I know I can’t wait to meet her in a few weeks!

To tide us all over, let’s take a look back on soon to be big brother A’s newborn session here.
