chicago southport corridor lifestyle family photography session

Share the ♥︎


all the chicago SUMMERTIME feels!


Just like every fingerprint is totally unique, so are these images I captured recently of this fun family in Lakeview. I absolutely LOVE how we mixed it up with this session with a FUN urban Chicago vibe. We embraced everything that the awesome Southport corridor embodies and we got a unique perspective of their new neighborhood.

Lifestyle family photography begs for candid, in-between moments that you don’t realize you’re missing out on. I’d much rather freeze and frame these coveted memories than a STIFF, forced, everyone-looking-at-the-camera type pose. (A little PSA: I’m NOT your photographer if all you’re dead-set on getting the traditional ‘grandma’ shot of everyone staring at the camera.) I love to provide all of the little bitty moments you want your kiddo to remember of their childhood. All of the happy, all of the love, and also in this case: all of the SUNSHINE

Helloooo SUMMER!


Life’s a party. Don’t forget your +1.


(P.S. Oh, do these pretty people look familiar? Let me help you jog your memory with their previous fall session & their lifestyle newborn session. Such a privilege to be considered their ‘go-to’ photographer!)


What better way to take your first steps than walking the streets of some of the best stores and restaurants. Am I right?! 

Who said calories aren’t messy?! Sorry mom.

There is no angry way to say bubbles. #bestdayever
