evie | one year | lake county il child photographer

I have been photographing this gorgeous family since sweet Evie was a newborn, and our sessions just keep getting better every time I see them. A few weeks ago, Evie’s one year session was one of my first spring, glowy, sunset sessions of 2015 and I am just in love. I edited way too many images, of course, because I just couldn’t choose. Check out just a small sample of some of my faves –

Annaliese | Fresh 48 | Lake County IL newborn photographer

You guys. I am *obsessed* with these Fresh 48 sessions. Visiting these brand new families in the hospital is just the most special thing, and I have totally fallen in love with capturing these first few moments for them. I mean, is there anything more amazing than welcoming a brand new baby into the family?!?! A few weeks ago I visited this gorgeous new family of 4 in the hospital, and I’m pretty sure their gallery was the biggest one I’ve ever completed. I just had to edit them all! Check out some of my favorites from sweet Annaliese’s Fresh 48 session.

pumpkinheadbands

A few weeks ago, I had a super fun photo shoot featuring my friend Hannah’s new turban style headbands. Hannah and her daughter, plus another friend and her baby girl, and my own two daughters all played models while we tried on different headbands and had oodles of fun. But for as much fun as we had taking the pics of these amazing headbands, the real things are even better. Trust me. I mean, I’m pretty much a self-proclaimed headband addict, and I am so excited about these. Pumpkinheadbands are super unique, come in tons of fun patterns, and can fit babies up through adults! Plus, in the few weeks since our photo shoot, Hannah has added so many new styles and patterns to her shop. You must go check it out today! I am so impressed with this mama and how her business has boomed in just a few short months, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next!

I will always, always support small businesses, but those that are run by mamas out of their homes will always have a special place in my heart. And this one my friends, is a very, very good one. Go check out pumpkinheadbands today – you will be so glad you did!

baby j | lake county il maternity photographer

Winter maternity sessions are some of my most favorite types of sessions ever. The sun is just different in the winter – moodier, a little warmer, and oh so pretty. Add in a little snow on the ground, plus a gorgeous expectant couple, and I am in pure photographer heaven.
