Sweet Family 
Here is why I love this baby...

1. He looks SO much like my sweet little nephew who I adore.

2. When I walked in the door for the shoot on Sunday morning, he just looked so cute & cuddly I couldn't resist asking to hold him. The second he was in my arms he cuddled up & laid his precious little head on my shoulder--melting my heart instantly.

3. He was a total sport...super sweet & patient throughout his shoot, despite missing a nap, earlier. What a guy!

4. Just look at him. Who wouldn't love him?

Too, too, too, too, too cute 
I read, not too long ago, advice from an awesome photographer. He wrote that to be a great photographer, one must know when not to click the shutter. I agree. But, come on…when photographing adorable little things like this, how can I stop myself? I am currently in the most difficult part of the photographic process, for me, with this shoot…weeding through my shots and looking for gold.

Little Angel Baby, here, gave me too much gold. It’s taking me forever to narrow down these shots and find some favorites to show Mommy. What to do…what to do…

Here’s the tip of the iceburg.

Stalled Session 
Last week I had the opportunity to work with some really cool people! They were a band called Stalled, and they ROCK! They were all so fun to work with--even their "roadies"! You can check out their music & get updates on their shows at

Thanks, guys, for a great time. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, and I hope you get lots of use out of your new band pics. These are some of my favorite shots from the session.

On another note: don't forget that I'm offering free portrait sessions through Feb 17th, so if you haven't already made an appointment to take advantage of this deal, contact me soon to reserve your date!

This month's special: Free Portrait Session Fee! 
This month's special is very special, indeed! Any session taking place in January will be FREE! That's right! In fact, since I'm posting this late, I will extend this month's special all the way up until February 17th! So, Happy Valentine's Day, too! The $80 minimum print order still applies.

Happy New Year! 
And Happy New Website! This is my first EVER blog…so I don’t know, for sure, what it will end up like, but I’m looking forward to it!

This will definitely be a place for clients to get a preview of their photos before I get to posting proofs, but it may also be sort of a fun little journal. For instance, today I think I’ll share some of my Chicago Christmas with you!

There is so much to say about this trip home. It’s all devastatingly interesting to me, but maybe not to you…so I’ll just give you a few details about our wonderful holiday…

1. Family, family, and family! So much family and so little time—thank God for all the wonderful people we have in our lives! We’re so lucky—so blessed to have so many hilariously funny, cool people to spend Christmas with! So good to see my adorable nephews and meet my brother’s girlfriend for the first time.
2. Downtown Chicago: this was my favorite part of the trip…we went to Christkindmart at Daley Plaza and then to Macy’s to look at the windows while sipping on warm drinks from Starbucks…just dreamy. It really was fantastic. It seemed like every one of the thousands of people we saw that night was full of the Christmas spirit (or maybe they were just full of the spiced cider they were selling at the Christkindmart!) If you are ever able to go to Chicago at Christmastime—you must check this out. It is an amazing thing to be at a street-festival in winter in Chicago. Bizarre and beautiful…and cold.
3. FOOD!!!!!! Dunkin Donuts. Italian Beef. Chicago-Style Dogs. Home-made Christmas Cookies. My mom’s vegetable soup!!!!! God, it was SO good. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

There’s more to say, of course, but I figure I’ll keep it relatively brief this time. Thanks for reading! Take care!
