Busy Weekend : Chicago Children’s and Family Photography Event Photographer

Happy, Happy Birthday….I can’t help but sing this version of the old favorite at every birthday party I go to (well at least in my head…)



I had the pleasure of finally meeting JP’s family this past weekend while photographing his first birthday party at Brookfield Zoo.  Last year I was unable to photograph his beautiful (cake sneaky) sister’s birthday party and was overjoyed to be contacted to shoot this celebration for them this year.  A big Happy Birthday to the handsome b-day boy…I hope you are feeling better little guy…and a big thank you to his gracious and lovely family for allowing me to capture these fun, sweet moments for them in celebration of JP’s first year of life….


Even though he wasn’t feeling 100% there is no denying that this guy is one gorgeous boy!
