Smash cake photos for Norah’s First birthday!
To honor little Norah turning one, her parents planned an afternoon of delight. Gold balloons, party favors, and smash cake photos. Was I jealous? Uh, yeah, a little bit.

In 2011, I had the honor of photographing Kate and Tj’s wedding in downtown Chicago. Since then, a lot has happened for this couple–the biggest life change, the birth of their son, Luke, who turned one this past month.
On a sunny October Sunday morning, we strolled through the prairie of Winnemac Park, a perfect setting for Chicago fall family photos. Luke was all smiles throughout the shoot, a happy baby with an easy going spirit–not a surprise considering his two wonderful parents.

Michael Jr.’s One Year Photos
A year ago, dear friends Kimi and Michael Ponzio welcomed home their first son, Michael Jr. This August, they not only celebrate his 12 months of life, but also their new son or daughter, who is now 12 weeks.
Michael Jr. charmed the socks off me. I can only imagine how wonderful their newest addition will be. Please come soon, February. Congrats Kimi and Mike!

Fall is the perfect time of year for family pictures. The cool, dry weather makes the fall colors even more vibrant! If you’re thinking of a a 2014 holiday card, this is a great time to come in to capture timeless keepsakes of your family. Before the shoot, I like to chat a bit on the phone to brainstorm ideas and go over details for the shoot. I love location scouting, so whether you’d like an urban or nature setting, we’ll find the just the place for you!
As for this family below, I can’t get over Thorah. She’s just the cutest and most smiley baby I have ever photographed. Congratulations to James and Katie for creating this adorable nugget!
If only teleporters existed in real life, instead of only in science fiction films and books. If they did, I’d be one of the first to invest in their magical power so I could visit these two little ones as often as possible.
Last month my sister gave birth to her second child, Charlotte Thompson, named for our late mother. I was lucky enough to have a wedding booked back in Nebraska the same week Charlotte, aka “Charlie,” was born. What perfect timing! I stayed in town after the wedding to get some quality time in with the family. Of course, I couldn’t keep my camera down. There’s no way I could resist my nephew Reed’s big blue eyes, or Charlie’s perfect button nose. I can’t wait to see them again this weekend!
Candid Chicago family photos
NBC 5 Chicago’s Lauren Petty welcomed the birth of her third daughter, Claire, four months ago. This past Claire had her very first photo shoot, along with the rest of the family in Western Springs, IL. Petty is just as beautiful in real life as behind the video camera, and her three daughters are just as photogenic!
Natural Family Photography
This natural family photography session was such a delight! The whole time the girls and I told stories about horses, real and imaginary and jump, spun, and ran all over Montrose Harbor. I loved watching the girls play, using sticks to pretend they were riding their horses and later bending down to the sidewalk to examine a furry caterpillar. What a delight!
