Downtown Elgin family photographs | beautiful family of 6!

This mama always does the most amaaaazzzing job of coordinating their outfits perfectly!  I am honored to be able to capture this family year after year.  We always have so much fun together.  This toddler absolutely wanted to wear his BEATS… and how cute that they “fit” with the scene.  So “hip”!

This alley in downtown Elgin, Illinois was the perfect location to capture this gorgeous family.  I’ve been photographing them for several years, and we wanted to do something different than in years past.  I think we accomplished just that!  Elgin is filled with some great brick walls and old textured buildings.  Perfect!

South Elgin Newborn Photography | sweet baby boy

His little half smile was the sweetest thing ever.  Every newborn that I have the honor of photographing in my South Elgin studio is completely different than the next.  That’s why I love my job.  Each day is different.  This little nugget was super easy, and slept through the entire session like a dream.  He gave me smile after smile.  His parents are completely smitten with him!  And, I’m sure you can see why!  I can’t wait to watch him grow over the years.

Check out these photographs of this sweet baby that were taken in my South Elgin, Illinois portrait studio.

Woodstock, Illinois family photography | apple picking

How much more adorable can they be?  When we decided on a location, I knew it would be absolutely perfect for a two year old to explore and have fun.  What better place than an apple orchard?  Capturing families is such an amazing job, I look forward to seeing each family every year when they return for their annual family photography session.

This location in Woodstock, Illinois was the perfect spot to capture this family.  If you would like to book a family session in the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs, please visit my contact me page and shoot me a message.


st. charles family photographer | gorgeous girls

Their love for their beautiful girls was absolutely the most wonderful thing to watch.  And, these girls absolutely adored each other.  I have two sisters, and just love watching sisters interact with each other.  I met this family in St. Charles, Illinois for their session.  The weather was perfect!

What a beautiful family!  I love capturing extended family sessions!  Grandparents and their grandchildren are something that should be captured and cherished.  I absolutely love this Elgin location in the summer and fall.  It has beautiful scenery, but more importantly… the LIGHT!  Check out a few of my favorites from their family session in Elgin, Illinois!
