Happy birthday C! I am just loving all my city babes lately and getting to shoot with the coolest of urban settings. Chicago architecture is second to none and having it is a backdrop is just awesome. I met C when he was 6 months. I just love his big eyes and curls. He was a trooper in the heat and we have timeless images of his first year milestone! Thank you M family for having me back over to spend time with you!

This munchkin I got to meet before he was born, right after he was born, and now at his 3 month milestone! I can not get over how big and much he has changed! he is just the happiest blue eyed boy. I did wear him out I think but he did awesome when he was in the mood to play!

    OMG – priceless, adorable, love them all! Nice work Gina!!!ReplyCancel

This family won the Mommy and Me session from the Mother’s Day contest and we waited a bit for the fields to get full for our session. I gave the family a couple different choices and when they went to check out the spots they knew this was the one because there was a deer out in the open to welcome them! This family is so sweet with so much love, and it just shows in these images!

Can you believe this handsome little guy is only one? It may have been a hot night, but he did awesome! His cute smiles and serious pout will just melt your heart. He even showed me his muscles 🙂 We had a blast running through my favorite spots, but I think Mr. A’s favorite was when he got to eat his first birthday cupcake. Happy Birthday A, and thank you M family for having me document this special time!

I hate to say this out loud but this was my first time to Lincoln Park Zoo (that I can remember at least).  I got to meet with the J family and explore some great spots around the grounds. I think we found some cool “Narnia” hideaways and I just love the bride overlooking the skyline. How cute are C and D with those curls and bright eyes??? D was a natural model and loved being in front of the camera. C was a little more shy but the camera loves her, and when she opens up, she has the most beautiful smile. Thank you J family for having me out to document all of you! Enjoy!
