Chicago cake smash | fun to be one

I love pulling together cake smash themed sessions!  Take me out to the ball game is one of my favorites, as I’m a crazy Cubs fan!  Who doesn’t love baseball… and CAKE?  Who isn’t a Chicago baseball fan (whether you’re a Sox or Cubs fan).

In the bitter cold, I’m thankful I have a studio where I can continue to capture these sweet babies.  Her expressions were so FUN!  My South Elgin studio is the perfect spot to capture those milestones!

My goal for 2018 is to get caught up on posting sessions from last year.  Here’s to a great start!

Bartlett baby photographer | two is better than one

Photographing twin newborn babies is so much fun.  These two slept like a dream as long as they were next to each other!  I’m sure this mama has her hands full, but full of so much love.  Can’t wait to watch them grow and photograph them again.  If you are pregnant and expecting twins, please email to get on my calendar.  Don’t wait to capture your tiny miracles.

Bartlett baby photographer | smiley babies are the prettiest

I could not get enough of this happy little one year old baby girl!  She certainly was smiley, and absolutely loved her smash cake that mom made for her!   I love watching my little clients grow… she was beautiful as a newborn, and more beautiful at one year old.

This was such a fun Winter ONEderland cake smash session!  Although she wasn’t “loving” her gorgeous cake, I was still able to capture her fun milestone of turning one year old!

I adore capturing one year olds!  If you’re interesting in scheduling a milestone session, please contact me at
