I had so much fun wrapping up the November sessions on location this past week or so. This session happened to be with the S Family at their lovely home in the area of North Park/Albany Park in the city. It’s the perfect example of how photographing in a child’s environment allows them to be relaxed and happy for the camera.

Miss S was one of my sweetest and funnest clients. She is not only seriously adorable but is going to, mark my world, take over the world with her patented cat shooing strategies (I’d let you know her secret but I don’t want to let the cat out of the proverbial bag!). We had tea time together and play time together and I’m pretty sure I made a new friend (or three).

Thank you S Family for welcoming me into your lovely home and allowing me to photograph this pretty amazing time in your lives:




(and we should all wish Josh a belated happy birthday as well – hope it was a great one!)

    Beautiful. I love the first and last best.

I have been photographing these kids for a LOOONG time now.  Nikki contacted me when her family was moving to the area when her little A was still a super little, we did her first session when she was just a bit over a year old.  Some of you may recognize this shot from the website and the Marmalade Photography information brochure, it remains one of my all-time-favorite images:


Well to say she’s grown is an understatement!  And she has a little brother and an adorable puppy to boot!!  Thank you K Family for once again allowing me into your lives to photograph you.  I so enjoyed seeing you the other day.  Onto the sneak peek…

Sometimes you don’t need words to express how nice it is to run into someone and get re-acquainted.  It’s like having a little AHA moment, your paths haven’t crossed in years and when you start conversing you have a total oh my gosh, I *get* what you’re saying feeling, like you are on the same page despite the difference of years that have passed.

When I booked this session I totally had that AHA “you get it” kind of thing, it’s remarkable when it happens and it totally illustrates to me that no matter who you are or where you’ve been life still takes you on a similar journey and sometimes the separate roads converge.   Dawn, I so  enjoyed getting to know your BEAUTIFUL  (you too Derrick) family.  Thank you all for hanging out with me for awhile so we could capture some beautiful images in the sweet light.  I hope you enjoy.
