Ella | 6 Months Old

So, fast forward a few months and here is Ella’s 6 month session. Well, I’ll admit it wasn’t really a formal session. I was visiting with her and her mom and wanted to take some photos of her. How could you not?! I have been in love with her since birth, but unfortunately I don’t get to see her that often as our schedules don’t really mesh very well! I did ask Anne (Ella’s mom) to make sure Ella was ready for some pictures. If you think she’s beautiful in these photos, I wish you could meet her. She’s the sweetest thing ever! Here are some images from her quick session.

Ella | Newborn Session

My friends Anne and Brad welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Ella. She was born at 6 lbs 4 oz and 19.25″ long, a tiny little thing! Tiny and beautiful! This post is late (like all my recent posts this year) but I wanted to show her newborn photos before her 6 month old photos. Enjoy!

Dayne | Chicago Newborn Session

I’m VERY late in blogging this little guy, but I figured better late than never. Dayne’s mom and I met through my cousins, where we ended up running into each other at step class in the gym. She was much better at it than me (even pregnant with Dayne!) but I tried my best to keep up! This little Mexapino (Mexican/Filipino) baby boy was the sweetest thing! He cooperated so well and I’m so glad, he’s such a handsome little guy! We did have a tiny accident, but luckily daddy caught it, hehe. Here are some images from his session that day.

Curtis Family | Cantigny Park Family Session

I went to school for Interior Design at Illinois Institute of Art and did my internship at an architectural firm for 2 years. This is where I met Heather and became instant friends. Daily lunches and breaks allowed us to get to know each other pretty well, so well she asked me to stand in her wedding! They now have 3 beautiful children. When they asked me to do their family session I couldn’t wait, these kids have such fun personalities. We had such a beautiful fall day (it was warm in November) and the sun was perfect.

Here are some sample from their fun session at Cantigny Park.

Caleb & Abby | Dallas Arboretum Session

What can I say about these two kiddos? A couple of years ago I photographed Abby at the Dallas Arboretum when she was about a year old. This time it was her brother’s turn. Caleb is quite a happy boy, I love his spirit! I was able to spend a little time with them last year due to my traveling to Texas for work. Abby’s sweet smile and Caleb’s big blue eyes, I surely miss them!

The Dallas Arboretum is such a beautiful place, if you’re ever in Dallas be sure to visit. We took these in November so all the fall decorations were still up so we were able to take advantage of the pumpkin patch. Here are a few samples of their portrait session.
