At Home ~ Chicago North Shore Lifestyle Photographer

There is just something wonderful about shooting a family's portraits in their home. The session is simultaneously calm and exciting. The kids are excited to show off their rooms, parents feel relaxed enough to step back and observe, and nothing compares to bringing everyone together in one room and just letting them have fun with one another. As you may have guessed, I loved this lifestyle session in Winnetka. Little Miss made me pretend hot chocolate. I read Rapunzel and listened to Green Eggs and Ham. And I witnessed a whole lot of family love zinging around one beautiful house. Le sigh....

Hitting the Town with the Johnson Family ~ Libertyville Family Photography

This sweet family came to see me in September, and they even brought their new puppy with them! We had some beautiful evening light that night, and the addition of three energetic kiddos and their pup made for a fun-filled twilight. I was exhausted at the end, but I could use the exercise, so all-in-all it was a perfect equation!
