Twice the Fun!

Oh me, Oh My!

Every weekend just keeps getting better!  Today I got to visit with a brother and sister pair-- the kicker, they are twins, and just 10 weeks old!

They did a great job with their first photo shoot, and even got a chance to take a nap right in the middle of it (Oh, the life!!).  I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks :)

Lions, and Tigers, and Frenchies, OH MY!

It was a beautiful (...and wet!) morning at Oz Park, here in Lincoln Park, Chicago.

As my family strolled around the park, I got to spend some play time with this little guy! Chopper was his name, and he was such a little tank!!

Is there anything cuter than a baby French Bulldog?  I think not!!

Just Because...

Looking forward to a couple pet shoots this weekend :)

I'm always excited when I get requests for French Bulldogs!!  I've got a photo-shoot on the books this Sunday morning at Oz park with a Frenchie, and I can't wait!

I booked my first wedding, dated for this September 10th!  I'm OH SO excited.  The couple, Dan and Maria, are really awesome, and the venue should be spectacular!  Be on the look out for more photos.

Also, I'll be working as a 2nd shooter for Stephanie Maurie Photography in Geneva for the rest of this year's wedding season. I'm really looking forward to shooting some great weddings and getting some awesome experience from a very talented photographer!!

Lucy is wishing everyone a great Thursday!

Cheers :)

One heck of a cute kid...

Pictures speak 100 words :)

The apple of my eye... refusing naps like a champ today!

2 year olds and Rockin' the Dress! What a day!

This morning was action packed!  I made it to North Ave. Beach at 5:15am this morning to start getting ready for a Trash the Dress session!

This was my first time doing a session like this, so I was really excited about this shoot!   North Ave. Beach has a great skyline of the city, which helped us get some great shots!

Following the Trash the Dress session, I got to hang out with an ADORABLE 2 year old up near my own hood!! He showed me all of his toys, made some funny faces, and did LOTS of jumping with me!  Had a great time with this little guy and his mom and dad!

Beachfront Couple Shoot at Montrose Beach

Today I spent the better part of my morning wandering around Montrose Beach.

While doing some exploring before my adorable and delightful couple showed up, I met a friend.  I think she was a girl... either way, she was so skinny and hungry.  I ran to the Bail Shop, only to find that the only edible things they had for sale were doughnuts.  SO... this little gal had a doughnut for breakfast :)  I wish I could have taken her home. She was so friendly and sweet!

The morning started off with sprinkles, but on our drive to the harbor, the sun was shining and I figured we were clear from the rain... wellllll.... no so much!

Here are a few pictures we captured before the heavy clouds came in.  Delia and Nick were married back in February, and wanted to grab some fun couples photos for their new casa near the beach!  Thanks so much for spending your morning with me, guys! I had a great time meeting you and being able to catch a few good laughs with you, as well!!

New Camera - hoOrAy!!!!!

Just got my Canon 5d Mark II in the mail from Amazon!

Here's my first snap shot with the new gear.  Lucy was much more impressed with the box then the camera!

Looking forward to my couples shoot with Delia and her Husband at Montrose Harbor this weekend!  And of course, my Trash the Dress shoot at North Ave. beach, as well as 2 year old Birthday photos next weekend!

There might even be a Newborn portrait shoot on the books for this weekend :)  Check back for sneak peeks!

I needed to take some pictures today (I was going through withdrawal!) so I snapped a few of my favorite model of all time... Lucy Lou :) It was too hot in Chicago to do much today, so we played with her toys, watched some Matchmaker Millionaire, and took naps together... man, it's rough being her mom :)
