Fall Family Session At Central Park – Des Plaines, IL

I found these gorgeous colors still hanging around at Central Park. This family of five took advantage of the weekend and we ended up with a fabulous fall family session! Mom dressed everyone perfectly for this session and the location. The result is nothing but perfect family portraits!

9 Month Milestone in Studio – Des Plaines Photographer

9 Month Milestone in Studio – Des Plaines Photographer

9 months and still full of smiles! From holding her head up then sitting to standing, it is so fun to see her come back everything three moths to show off another milestone. The first year is full of such growth. You blink and they have a new trick or new expression. I am so happy Mom and Dad chose me to capture her first year. One more milestone session to go!

One Month Baby Collage Frame – Art Product

One Month Baby Collage Frame – Art Product

It can be so hard to choose the images a client wants to look at every day. But we did it!

The top frame will hang in the hallway that leads to Baby J’s room. His parents plan to add to this as he grows but this will stand alone until his next session. We had to make sure the image would look well alone and would also allow accompanying images as time goes on.

Mom selected the large image in the collage because it shows off his length and his gorgeous eyes, the top image because of his eyes again, the middle because she will remember how peacefully he sleeps and the bottom because he gave us a little smile. How can you not walk by that every day and not smile yourself!

The bottom image of Baby J and his Mom will hang in her room and will allow her to see how he small he once was for years and years to come. I think that may be the image she cherishes the most in 20 years.

Filling a Home with Artwork

Filling a Home with Artwork

Some gorgeous artwork went home today. Two images printed on a standout mount, ready to hang in the clients home, along with a wooden print box filled with a 5X7 print of each of the final 40+ images from their session. The wooden box looks gorgeous out on a table or book case and makes it easy for your family and friends to look through the images. Having family photos around the home boosts the self esteem of the child, making them feel important and loved. It also provides great conversation for guests and family.
