The K Family’s Hickory Creek maternity session was nothing short of magical. They brought their three fur babies with, that were just as sweet as could be.

When we met at the end of September the leaves were just starting to change color and K’s dress was the perfect pop of color against them. K is just gorgeous and was absolutely glowing the night of her session.

Soon to be Grandma and Grandpa joined us to wrangle the puppies and even jumped in for some sweet family photos. You could just feel the excitement of their first grandchild.

I can’t wait to meet their baby girl and have no doubt that her newborn session will be just as magical ✨

Oh sweet Miss B is a year old and we had the sweetest session to remember this milestone. We met up on a gorgeous night near Grau Mill and the forest preserve went perfectly with the whole style of the session. The girls looked like sweet little cherubs sitting among the trees.

B did not disappoint with her cake smash either and went all in just like her big sister did at her first Birthday session! I mean are you really fully enjoying your cake if you don’t eat it face first and cross eyed?! I just can’t get enough of these sweet girls.

These girls deserve all the red puffy heart emoji’s ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I love having them as a part of our close friends. I also love the way they love on my kids and make excellent travel buddies!

They may have looked at me like a was crazy a few times during their session (that happens on a normal day anyway 😆), but how gorgeous did their photos turn out??!!

They are stunning ladies and we had fun spending quality time together.

Love ya Bacon Bits!

Miss C’s Palos Heights newborn session was just as sweet as she was. She was so full of smiles and I was obsessed with capturing every single one of them. From start to finish she was one happy girl and never made a peep. C was particularly happy in the “taco” pose, but who could blame her because tacos always make me happy too!

I’ve always been partial to neutral tones for newborn sessions and loved that Mom was too. I feel like they make for more timeless images that never go out of style.

There were so many amazing images from C’s session I had a hard time narrowing them down! I hope you all enjoy them just as much.

I can’t believe we just finished off Miss H’s year of milestone photos with the V Family’s pictures. Her one year pictures happened to coincide with the sunflower field and they couldn’t have turned out more perfect!

Always perfectly styled, the V Family looked amazing and color coordinated perfectly with the bright yellow sunflowers and the sunset behind the pond. Mr A had his game face on per usual and was ready to go. We always have great chats about Paw Patrol and dinosaurs and he always asks where my “friends” are (aka my kids 😆). Little Miss H was also the star of the show with her big blue eyes and toothy grin.

It’s so sad that we don’t have milestone sessions every three months to look forward to so I think that just means it’s time for Momma to give me one more little chunk to photograph 😉.
