All you have to do

is be yourself

and live the story

that no one else can live–

the story of your

unique life.

Be proud.

Be confident.

And most of all, be happy.

I love this girl as if she were my own. We had so much fun capturing this most special and momentous time in her life.

You are cherished.

You are loved.

You are adored.

You are perfect–

our sweet baby girl.

To see a family grow is truly one of the greatest blessings I have as a photographer.  I met both of these beautiful babies when they were still in their mama’s tummy and now they are happy, joyful little beings–full of life and happiness.  Their smiles just take my breath away. It just gets better and better. I truly love what I do!

Once upon a time, there was a little boy who really wanted a pet fish. One day he was lucky enough to win two fish at a carnival.  The boy was so happy and spent lots of time looking at his fish, talking to them and feeding them. The boy learned that sometimes wishes do come true.

This month our circle of photographers focused on telling a story through photos. For more inspiration, begin my visiting my friend and the very talented, Christine Blaylock,  Northwest Suburban Chicago Child Photographer. I love her take on this theme.

This beautiful boy turned 6 months old and could not be any sweeter! Even though he was tired for our shoot, he still managed to give me the most exuberant smiles.  And big brother was a great assistant, making his brother giggle throughout our time together.

As a mom to boys, I pretty much know what to expect from them, but this photo shoot was a bit different, because the boys were twins.  And were they fun! I loved watching them interact with one another and make each other laugh.  Though they deny being best friends, these images show there is no doubt that these guys are best buds and always will be.

Stunning doesn’t even begin to describe this girl. And the best part, she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  She will be entering high school in the fall, so it seemed fitting to capture this special time in her life. Her mama is a dear friend of mine;  we had lots of fun capturing these images!
