The Waterfall Session : Chicago Child and Family Photographer

I was thrilled several months ago when I got the call for this session!!  Backstory: a couple of years ago I had the fortune of meeting B and his parents, Gretchen & Brian  in Lincoln Park for an on location session.  At the time B was not even a year old, happy and sweet and adorable!  Fast forward (seriously it feels that way for me) and I cannot believe how two years passes so quickly and babies become little boys in (what seems like) the blink of an eye.

Thanks to B’s p’s 🙂 , Gretchen & Brian for making their way out to mosquito country the studio for a Marmalade Location : Waterfall Session.  I loved seeing how big our guy has gotten…I love his big personality, his obsession with ants and his sweet smile.  Thank you for allowing me to capture B at age 2+ and your relationship with him.

(and now a blast from the past)

    Amazing, again! Thank you! When I showed them to B, he wanted to see pictures of Marianne, too! I’m glad you have a photo of yourself up above. He had a great time and is still talking about you. Thanks again, and can’t wait to see the rest!

    These are gorgeous. I am so in love with the one of mum and dad kissing his cheeks, it’s so perfect. He certainly has grown and I love all of these images capturing how much.

    Isn’t it great that you have clients that truly are aware of how time passes so quickly and children grow so fast? Wonderful treasures for them!

  • Marianne - September 30, 2008 - 8:33 pm

    Gretchen, I LOVE that he wondered where I was! He is beyond words adorable!

    Melissa, the ole 85/1.2L 😀 Is there any other?

  • chantelle - October 1, 2008 - 3:55 am

    beautiful as always! the first one needs to be printed huge!!

  • Melissa M - October 1, 2008 - 6:28 am

    Dang-it….I knew it!! Thanks! I’m so getting that lens. I use the 85 1.8 almost exclusively…me thinks an upgrade is due!
