Mother – Daughter Session- Arlington Heights Photographer

Mom wanted some special images of just her and her baby girl…. because she is no longer a baby anymore!

I think we accomplished just that! Her daughter is going to love seeing these images in their home everyday reminding her how much Momma loves her.

This mom and daughter joined in my Busse Woods Mini Sessions last weekend. This was the perfect way to use a mini session!

I am wishing I had some of these precious images with my daughter! I need to get her out with me soon.


Filling a Home with Artwork

Some gorgeous artwork went home today. Two images printed on a standout mount, ready to hang in the clients home, along with a wooden print box filled with a 5X7 print of each of the final 40+ images from their session. The wooden box looks gorgeous out on a table or book case and makes it easy for your family and friends to look through the images. Having family photos around the home boosts the self esteem of the child, making them feel important and loved. It also provides great conversation for guests and family.






Best Friends – Des Plaines, IL

Best Friends for 9 months, the proof is in the photos.

Little J and his best buddies. They look out for him, clean up after him and play with him.

If you look close, you can see their first photo together hanging just above on the right. His favorite friends giving kisses when he was a newborn. This image shows the importance of their relationship over the last 9 months as well the importance of hanging images in your home. Little J gets to see all of his favorite people every day holding him close as his grows up. And Mom and Dad get some super cute artwork to enjoy everyday 🙂

Enjoy your photos on more then just your phone! Contact me today to make sure you get your own family in your home to enjoy for years.


Schaumburg Fall Portraits – Simple Session

It was very tough for mom to everyone together. I can image with 7 teens (or almost teens) with jobs, sports, college and other events that pull them in all directions. I know I have a difficult time coordinating with just two! However, they pulled it off! We were able to schedule everyone on a Sunday night at Busse Woods which provided the most gorgeous fall colors. I am not sure who was in charge of outfits but they rocked it! Perfect colors for our setting.

And what a fabulous group of kids. They seem to have great relationships that will last them for years to come. Thanks to Mom and Dad for bringing them all out and creating some great images that they will be very thankful for down the road.







Family – Downtown Arlington Heights

I have been lucky enough to photograph these girls for the past few years. I met them when there was only three little blonde beauties and now there are five. This session went amazingly well and seamless.

Last session I had with them, their third daughter was the baby. This session she was anything but the baby, she was a proud big sister helping with the twins and boasting with pride the whole time. It is great to watch my families grow and I can’t wait to see the great relationship these girls develop over time.












Little Sister – Mount Prospect Photographer

The entire session was brought about by this first image. Mom and Dad wanted to make sure they got this image up and in their home when their little girl was one. It wasn’t the nicest day and rain kept turning on and off during our session time. However we were able to create the family portrait images needed for their home and to give out to family. We headed to the Friendship Conservatory in Mount Prospect in order to keep the location close for the family and pretty for their backdrop.

This is the result of having three older brothers in addition to your Dad and his Police Dog.

She is one very loved, very protected and very lucky little girl.
