A week from today I will be twenty-nine. And honestly I am looking forward to my last year in my twenties. A Christmas with two babies, a destination wedding to shoot in Ireland, a couple more vacations with friends, and so much more! I also am looking forward to being able to focus on my other baby, GCP, and see what wonderful things come our way this upcoming year. Due to the huge growth this year, and the fact that I have had to start a pretty significant waiting list, made me think….how can I try my best to fit people in but not go nuts {or spend too much time away from my family}? Mini Session Events! Β During the nicer weather months there will be one weekend day a month I will go to a location {I will try to go different different spots around the Chicago land area} and have a bunch or 25 minute mini sessions. In the fall I will probably have more since the 2010 holiday mini sessions booked up so fast. Much like the Holiday Mini Sessions, I will announce the dates and general locations, then I will have a date and time you can start booking. Since I have been booking up regular sessions a month in advance at times and my weekends book up MONTHS in advance, I will be announcing these dates and general locations soon. That way you will know you have a secured session for next year, or if you need to book a regular session time.

Now what you all really want to hear..for my 29th birthday I would like to give three people mini sessions in 2011! That includes: first dibs on dates and times before bookings open and the session fee *(that includes) the CD of edited images (10-15 images) for one mini session.

E is four months and counting! His little smile just melts your heart and his relaxed personality makes you just want to stay around. Β Even at his newborn photos he never made a peep. This weather has ben stunning and we got to take a little walk to a local park to get some sweet family shots. Already excited to see E and Mom and Dad in a couple months! E makes my job so easy!

Sweet M is one! She has been one of my sprout babies and her big sis E has also been so involved with our fun themed sessions. Β Their first session was for last Christmas, next was Easter, then was a summer and tea party theme, and this time a fall setting. Each time has been a blast with these lovely girls and I am so looking forward to M’s 18 month session already. They always have the sweetest outfits and props.

Happy Birthday M!

Thank you C family for inviting me to document M’s special milestones.

    Happy Birthday to Miss M! GREAT pictures Gina, as always! The photo with the leaves being thrown and M in her chair are my favorites. Gorgeous girls!ReplyCancel

T is ten months! I can not believe we are two months away from the big one already! This month has to be some of my favorite images of her. And they were taken in my own backyard

I always love chatting with T’s parents too. I think we laugh the whole time. And with that said

Criss cross chicken sauce {you had to be there , a little inside joke Β :)}

She is spunky, beautiful, and always moving. Which is why having her session in the crisp fall was perfect. She had plenty of leaves to keep her busy, while the sun made her natural glow sparkle even more.

It feels good to be back to work. After five weeks of photographing a stationary newborn, four year old B made me work. But that is okay….I have a fast shutter speed Β and determination to get the perfect shot πŸ˜‰
