Sneak Peek of "S" Kids!

So we did yet another mini last weekend, and hmmmm...just as cute as the rest! Something in the air that day, or just alot of happy kids...For the "S" family though it might have been one hour to game time, so there was definitely an incentive to smiling! I so love seeing my good friends M & J away from all the craziness of our kids schedules and love how comfortable the kids are...."M" this is a quick one, I am still working on them! Enjoy the holiday more after.

Sneak Peek of "C" kids!

Mini...ok, I am LOVING my mini's! It must be something about telling the kids, hey, 15 -30 minutes we are out of here...or, maybe everyone just had really happy kids. Either way, I am thrilled with what we captured in such a short time frame! Definitely planning to offer more minis for next season! Mrs. "C", this is a quick one I wanted to post, I am not through them all...please enjoy the holiday and your "mini" sneak peek!

sneak peek of "S" boys!

Wow, what a great mini session. Mini??? We got so many awesome pictures in 15 minutes, I am even amazed. Hmmmm, cutting this down to 5 images, that will be a challenge. Mom had the boys dressed so perfect for our setting, it is so cool when a look goes so well with where we shoot. The guitar was a great idea, and the boys were so fun. I am really glad that we got to spend some time together, tell the boys they totally rocked the session. Here is one, with an artistic preset, just had to post it. There are so many...cant wait to share. More after the holiday!

Sneak Peek of "A" Family!

Seeing lifelong friends is always so fun...Mrs. "A" and I met when we were 6! Of course my daughter cannot believe "that"....or maybe that I "was" ever 6.The property that their new home is on, is a photographer's dream....with horses, hills, trees, water and a beautiful bridge. A very casual look was our plan, and I think we got some really nice shots! Grandma and Grandpa were in a few was so nice to see them, I have so many childhood memories that were brought back. Aside from one of the horses taking a walk by itself, and the sun going down a bit faster than we wanted, things went pretty smooth! I learned how not to position Dad...thanks for that! (ha) you made me crack up, glad to see you have not changed a bit! I really enjoyed talking with the kids, and so miss you "M"! I cannot wait to come back with my family and hang with you all.

Sneak Peek of "P" Family!

Oh how I love to see how big little "e" is getting, all curls and running everywhere! I have been photographing her for awhile now... She is a new big sister though, and Baby "L" was so sweet and had the biggest blue eyes! Getting a 2 1/2 and a 6 month to sit together for more than 2 minutes was near imposible...however we managed to grab some super cute shots. Mom and Dad were wonderful, running and scooping up the girls as needed to catch those magical moments!....And Mom was a huge help with our little grass eater Ms. "L"! I think we did really great...please enjoy your sneak peek, Ill post to your gallery very soon!

Sneak Peek of Baby "S'!

 8 weeks can be a challenging age to photograph, but little "S" was really easy to work with and when he got fussy, Grandma had the magic touch! I so love these tiny my baby fix for sure! Little "S" gave us a few quirky smiles and had the most adorable holiday outfits...Mom likes Janie and Jack, you can totally see why...this is one in the HOHO hat and sweater bunting...more cute to come tomorrow!

Sneak Peek of "C" kids!

Driving to meet the "C" family, there was snow, rain, dark clouds, and then sun! We crossed our fingers and Mother Nature decided to "be on my side"! I think I said the last children I had were the happiest so far this season...well Mr. G and Ms. E were so happy and so easey to work with, I cannot say enough.

Even with wet grass and some snow showers, everyone had a blast. Mom, there are so many of them together, I know you will have a hard time choosing, I know I would! Enjoy your weekend, and Ill email wehn I get your gallery posted.

Sneak Peek of "R" kids!

What do you do when the winds are 40mph....go home? reschedule? worry??? NO-SMILE-ALOT! This was my first time meeting the 'R' family. I really, have not photographed more happy children this entire season. I loved all of the real smiles, telling jokes, and the genuine bond that these two have. Mom I have posted 3 large images...will post a grid tomorrow. Please tell the kiddos hello and I am so glad you found me!

Sneak Peek of Little Ms. "M"!


Mom and little "M" had a long drive out from Chicago for our session...and did I want to be sure we got some great shots! We started in Urban Naperville, and then headed over to a nice park a few minutes away...for a 3 year old, Ms. M was a super poser, and so sweet. I am blown away at the vivid colors and her coloring in my images and hope Mom and Grandma will be too. I know I am way less traditional and more artistic than your past sessions and hope you love the results! This is a teaser of what we got, I plan to post a full grid this evening! Ok-I couldnt are the rest!
