FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

Honestly, I would not mind if all of my sessions were right here in my Lakeview neighborhood.  I just love it.  Meeting these two brand new parents was such a pleasure. Just like me, they recently moved from the Bay Area.  We had plenty to talk about during this newborn photo session but our primary focus was on beautiful baby Ellie.  So brand new, fresh and adorable, it was hard not to gush over her.
Enjoy these photos!

Fleeting Moments | Precious Memories

I just love that a good number of my sessions are within walking distance of my new Chicago home.  In addition to photographing, I get the bonus of meeting wonderful people who live in my neighborhood.  This couple is no exception.  I had a wonderful time from the moment I first walked into their Lakeview condo.  Instantly, I knew that this will be a fun photo session.  Their daughter Gabriela is the sweetest and most adorable little girl.  She was amazing during the entire shoot.  Just a day earlier baby Gabriela had her first birthday party.  Leftover balloons were a perfect prop for some of the shots. Enjoy!

Fleeting Moments | Precious Memories

February in Chicago, 70 degrees at a beautiful forest preserve. Such conditions for an outdoors maternity session during this time of year are just non imaginable. How incredibly lucky we were?!  I welcome this early spring with open arms despite my concern about global warming.  Expectant couple Elle and Patrick are young, beautiful and so in love with each other.  I photographed this boho inspired maternity session with ease. I was equally inspired by the couple as I was by the beauty of Miami Woods forest preserve.

ABOUT THE SESSION

It was easy capturing this sweet couple’s maternity session because of closeness and connection that Elle and Patrick share.   At times, it was almost as I was not there.  I gave minimal guidance and allowed for their story to unfold.  The forest preserve looked surprisingly stunning this time of year. In a way bare yet with so much beauty.

It was such a pleasure getting to know this expectant couple. With sincerest happiness I wish them the best on their path to parenthood.

Fleeting Moments | Precious Memories

While living and working in California, I did not have many chances to photograph maternity sessions inside my clients’ homes.  We always preferred to stay outside, soak in the sun and explore beautiful locations. However, I must admit that in-home maternity sessions are easily becoming some of my favorites.  This session was photographed at my client’s home in the River Forest neighborhood of Chicago. It is a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home built in the 1970s.  The architectural design is stunning, as well as the mid-century furnishings.

About the Session

We photographed in quite a few different areas throughout the home, but the living room was definitely my favorite.  I loved the amount of natural light pouring in through the long narrow windows despite the cloudy day.  Corina’s craft room was another one of my favorite rooms.  I am not a crafty person, but I bet even I could create something super cute in there.

In addition to their wonderful home, I had the opportunity to capture the loving expectation of my clients awaiting their first child.  They were a wonderful duet (along with their beautiful cat).   They are expecting a girl and I cannot wait to photograph her in the coming weeks.

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

I just finished processing Marika and Dean’s in home maternity session and I could not be any happier with the result.  Marika had a perfect pregnancy glow and looked stunning in every shot. Their home, situated in the University Village of Chicago, is impeccable. It looked as if it was straight out of interior design magazines.  The light was amazing thanks to the large windows and tall ceilings.  This maternity session was perfect in every way.

About the Session

As soon as I walked through the door, the beauty of their home amazed me. With it’s tall ceilings, and windows on every side, the light was soft yet bright enough. I wanted to showcase the stunning details of the living room and bedroom and that is where we spent most of our time. Marika’s outfits were amazing. They fit snug and allowed the belly to be the focus of every image.  The love between Marika and Dean and their beaming excitement of what is to come in the following weeks was prevalent. I hope it translates well into these images.

I can’t wait to photograph the newborn session.  Enjoy!
