Last week I went on vacation to visit family at my old stomping grounds in Evanston, IL, just outside of Chicago. During my trip, I was fortunate enough to set up a fun family portrait session with my dear childhood friend, Stacy, and her new beautiful family. We chose the Baha’i Temple, a beautiful sacred place with stunning gardens surrounding it. Meet baby Amalia, not quite a year old yet but bubbling with personality. I wouldn’t say she was “all smiles” during the session, but that didn’t bother me at all! I love how candid babies are, and it was beautiful to watch her parents interact with her. The bilingual family just moved back to the States after living in Chile for some time. Congrats Stacy and Mark, and welcome back!

    Great work, as always, Frances. I’m sure that Amalia will show her winning smile more once her teeth arrive. All the best to Stacy and Mark.
