A Chicago Family Mini Session with Cherita, Jesus, and Baby D

We had the opportunity to meet Baby D a couple of weeks ago- and he’s pretty adorable. Ah! Calm little cuties are the best. Cherita and Jesus had simple, organic natural light photos for their Chicago family mini session at their beautiful home in Chicago. Cherita decorated their home with wonderful neutral blue, tan, and grey tones.  Even Baby D’s (or should we say Jesus’) toy R2D2 fit the bill for the color scheme! The most awesome decor for a Chicago Family Mini Session.

For family sessions, we like to focus on the family themselves, keeping it simple.  Simply family- essentially having the opportunity to capture all of you hanging out together.  So that they can remember exactly how it was… as opposed to stiff posy posy stuff. (Trust me, everything is posed- but in more of a lifestyle and real feel)  And with the all famous, adorable Baby D, he made it easy.

Super congrats on your growing family you two!  Thank you for letting us shoot your film family session, it was an honor.  I hope that the 3 of you are had an awesome first summer together! (Holy cow- Labor Day weekend is upon us)

We like to shoot family mini-sessions primarily on film, and I want to thank The Find Lab for always being awesome at developing anything from our Contax 645 for our Chicago family mini session.

A Film Family Session with Jennifer, Alex, and Baby M

Oh man, be prepared with film family photography session adorableness with Jenn, Alex, and a little bundle of joy. We had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful new family. World, meet Baby M.

Seriously guys- she’s going to be a model. <3 For Jennifer and Alex’s film family session, we met them at their beautiful house- which they are now the proud owners of. Ah!  It was a busy month for Alex- turning 30, becoming a dad, and closing on a house! Busy month indeed.

Jenn and Alex had their film family session when baby M was just a week old, and had 5 days of getting acclimated to her surroundings at home with mom and dad (and Lilah!  Baby M’s furry older and just as wiggly sister.)  Lilah stole the show for a bit too, the sweetest most well behaved doggie ever.

Jennier and Alex had simple, organic natural light photos for their film family session in Grand Rapids, MI. Their amazing plant filled sun-room had the most amazing light to photograph their baby girl.  We like to focus on the family themselves, keeping it simple and without props for family sessions. So that they can remember exactly how it was.  And with this adorable bundle of joy, it was so incredibly wonderful. Jennifer and Alex are some of the warmest hearted people I’ve met.

Super congrats on your growing family you two!  Thank you for letting us shoot your film family session, it was an honor.  I hope that the 3 of you (and Lilah too!) are having an awesome first summer together!

Flying Permit

Inspired by the wonderful photographers Bobbi and Mike (Bobbi’s healthy train to be more exact), I head off to the gym this afternoon.  After crossing the street- I saw a speedy crash landing into a pruned shrub. Before having the opportunity to wonder what in the world happened, the young speckle breasted Robin hopped up a tree in order to recompose himself.  I quickly snapped a photo of the stubby tailed little guy and kept walking, in order to not draw attention to him. Fledglings (thank you wikipedia) only take a couple of weeks to learn how to fly with their parents once leaving the nest. A fantastic wrap-up to the end of spring!

Newborn Baby Photography – Introducing Sylvia

Meet the adorably beautiful little Sylvia!!  She was just 15 days old for her newborn baby photography session when we had the opportunity to get photos of her. Amanda and Dan are so lucky and proud to have the most lovely and low key little baby.  Amanda says she gets her relaxed attitude from Dan. AND! We were so incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to be the first people to meet her outside of Amanda and Dan’s immediate family. Not too many people even believed that Sylvia cries- well, we have a few photos for proof. 🙂

Baby Sylvia was born a delightful 7 lbs 12 ounces on April 5th.  And- Miss Amanda even had a bit of time to spare to Facebook during child birth. Excellent, Amazing, Beautiful indeed.  I love the love in all of there shots hanging out with these two ladies this morning. Can’t even put it into words. Congrats Dan and Amanda.  What a beautiful family!

The ‘sadface’ shot is one of my favorites. 🙂
