Happy Valentine’s Day! As you know, love comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes. Baby Jackson was welcomed into the world less than two weeks before his very first photo shoot. In fact, we scheduled his pictures on his original due date. Eager for the world, he came a little early, and was welcomed by two adoring and amazing parents, Macrina and Tyson. I am grateful to be able to capture the most precious moments in life. Be warned, this blog post might make you very sleeeepy. <3

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!

November 1, 2011 Baby Gemma is Born!

I recently had the honor and privilege of photographing precious newborn Gemma, daughter of Tim and Gillian Sheldon Heckendorf. I love what I do especially because of opportunities like this one, where I’m granted permission into the intimate moments of life that are so fleeting and fragile. At the time of her first photo shoot, Gemma was only three and-a-half weeks old. I am left with nothing but gratitude for the experience of documenting this beautiful new family. Lots of love and congratulations to you three. Click Here for a Slideshow with Music!
