SIKORSKI | FAMILY

WARRENVILLE, IL


I recently had the pleasure of photographing the sweet Sikorski Family!  You can't tell from the photos because they completely braved the elements, but it was absolutely freezing and so, so windy the day of their session (even though it was at the end of April, mind you).  The girls were so cold but they were still such good listeners!  And let's talk about that light...it was just perfect! Check out my favorites from this beautiful session!  <3

BRANDON AND ALLY | CHILDREN

NAPERVILLE, IL


Today is Ally's 4th birthday.  She's getting tall and looks so beautiful and so grown up these days.  What I love the most though is that when both my kids smile, genuinely smile, like during a belly laugh, they flash me their dimples and I immediately see their baby faces and my heart melts.  But they are growing up so fast and I can see the changes in them in every set of photos I take, even if the photos are only taken a few months apart.  I took these photos about a week ago when we had a warmer winter day and lots of sunshine.  Brandon was actually about to lose his tooth (he did lose it later that night) and he was worried about it, but both kids knew how important it was to me to take a few photos of them to document their 6th and 4th birthdays.  So they braved the chilly evening air and gave me the gorgeous photos I so badly wanted.  And now my not-so-baby baby girl is 4 years old.  She's sweet, sassy, smart, kind, and we are so proud of who she is and who she is becoming!  

Happy 4th Birthday Alexandra!  We love you so much!  

WHALEN | FAMILY

NAPERVILLE, IL


Last summer I did a session for my good friend and fellow photographer Gina Whalen (of Gina Whalen Photography) and we had the best time!  First of all, she and her family are gorgeous!  Second of all, we had the best weather that evening and it made for an amazing sunset session!  Gina and her family are so laid back that we just had fun the whole time while I snapped away!  Take a look at her beautiful session!   (Gina (and her photography business) has since moved to South Carolina and I miss her but wish her all the best out there!  I know she's enjoying the milder weather there!!)
