The “W” Kids

I love when we start a photo shoot and immediately see that the children are so full of personality and are having such a great time in front of the camera. This brother and sister duo was so much fun to photograph.  Here are some photos from their session along with a few “out-takes” which […]

Happy 1 year!

While in Islamorada, Florida, I had the pleasure of taking sunrise photos of Kate and Cam, there for a wedding and also to celebrate their 1 year anniversary.   The backdrop for these photos was amazing.  A beautiful pier, a sun rising over the ocean, palm trees by the pool, a young couple that so […]

Dance

I had the pleasure of photographing over 30 dancers, ages 6-18 that are part of a dance performing company.  Along with their normal dance classes and 2 big dance shows a year, these girls perform several times throughout the year.  The directors of the studio wanted to take the girls outside and have some fun, […]

Tenley

I have known Miss Tenley since she was about 5 months old. I watched her learn how to walk and talk and saw how her personality developed.  She is beyond adorable and most certainly her own person.  Tenley’s mom has expertly transformed pieces of old furniture into “new” items. She brought along a vanity she […]

C.C.

Each year, I take photos of C.C. and her mom for a Father’s Day gift.  This year, we did something a little different.  C.c iC. has really taken to dance and has become an avid dancer. We went out and took some portraits of her and some of the two of them and added some […]

On Being 5…part 2

This is part 2 in a series of what it means to be 5. 5 is playing on a team for the first time…first uniform, first time learning all of the rules, first time having teammates, first time having a coach…so many life lessons being taught in a simple way.  The photos make it look […]

A Monarch Visit

Watching the butterfly snack on our Echinacea Flowers was mesmerizing. My daughter and I watched the Monarch flit around from flower to flower, tracking it and eventually, taking a few photos. I love our yard this time of year…beautiful flowers in full bloom, vegetables ready to be picked, mischievous  bunnies making a go at the […]

C.C.

C.C. is adorable…a perfect combination of her mom and dad. These photos were taken on a 15 minutes hiatus from a fun play date. I was quickly trying to capture C.C. for a Father’s Day gift for her daddy and grandpa.  She loved posing in her newly learned ballet poses and brought a princess crown […]

The “H” Brothers

These brothers, one going into pre-k and the other 2nd grade, showed up smiling…they were dressed up and ready to put on their best model poses. Cuties like these two make my job easy!  They are both so photogenic and full of happy smiles. It was my pleasure to take them out on the streets […]

Office Art

I was recently asked to provide photographic artwork for an office…pictures of skylines from a few major cities along with landscapes and floral photos. I have many of these photos in my portfolio from my travels, but wasn’t happy with the hometown Chicago skyline photos I had. So, yesterday, after looking at the 10 day […]
