It's not often that I have a family choose a sunrise shoot over the option of a sunset shoot and I am so happy this family did just that! We met at the beach in Lake Bluff at 6:45am! It was a long haul for both of us, but we arrived just as the sun broke the horizon and showed all its glory.
The light and sky were gorgeous as the sun rose above the lake, and the love in this family just oozes in each image. I loved the change of pace--- shooting on the beach and at sunrise and I think this family will treasure these moments, always.
As a photographer, it is so exciting to receive an email from a past client, learning that they are expecting. I absolutely love to see families grow, and to get to be there to capture some of the very first moments as a family when the new little one arrives, is one of my favorite roles as a family photographer. Newborn images will be treasured forever. These images will be passed down for generations and hold such a strong meaning in family history. To be able to capture and create such important images really is a true honor.
As with all my lifestyle newborn shoots, I offer to do a few posed studio-looking images so my clients can have the best of both worlds. Starting in 2017, SKP will no longer be booking studio newborn sessions.
These sweet sisters were so much fun to photograph. They were full of energy and excited, yet perfectly behaved. I loved all the different expressions we captured and the was the girls love each other so much. We had beautiful light and thankfully, relatively few mosquitos-- can't beat that combination!
This year on my birthday, in honor of my sister's dog, Tessa, who passed away, I gave away 4 mini doggie sessions. I had said I would gift one, but when the entries and stories started rolling in, there were 4 I couldn't pass up.
Meet Marley and his human. They drove all the way from Indiana for their session and I was so happy to be able to capture these sweet images which show the depth of love to their relationship. Marley sure loves his master and I know he is gonna love that new baby, too!
