better together | chicago lifestyle family photographer


When you meet some of the nicest people on the planet, you think they hit the family lottery when you meet their darling baby girl and their A M A Z I N G golden-doodle pup Maizey. We're talking the most well-behaved dog I've EVER met. Pretty hard to believe for a golden-doodle temperament, even if she's 3. And she was so sweet, patient and calm with her little baby sister, she even fell asleep! 

I just love meeting couples during these family sessions because you really get to witness their rhythm. It's a well-synchronized balance between one parent collecting the burp cloth, the other on diaper duty. One feeding. The other swaddling. Dad here has crazy long arms, so he was like a human baby swing. His daughter LOVES his arm swings!! And let's not forget about the coveted 'BABY SHUSHER'. I wish I invented this thing. These folks were smart enough to already own one!! (I never arrive to a newborn session without it.) It's just so incredible being able to share all of these intimate early memories for a family. I know they'll appreciate having these memories for a lifetime. Hope you enjoy taking a peek at our recent home lifestyle session together! XO


The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.
