Chicago maternity photos | studio photographer | pregnancy photos with family pet | Katy & Brendan

I photographed Katy and Brendan’s wedding a few years back. I’m so happy I got to see them and their puppy Charlie during this special time in their lives.  All the photos were taken in my studio. Contact me today to set up your session 🙂








3.2 Miles-

Addy & Griffin got married on 11-11-11, you can see the wedding here. In all my years of photographing weddings I have never heard vows like this, Carol and I wept though the whole thing. Even now when I read it it makes me all misty eyed. Recently Griffin gave Addy beautiful calligraphy of the vows he read to her on their wedding day.  Here’s a photo of it, it may be a little hard to read on the web so I wrote it up below the photo. Thank you for sharing Addy, and thank you Griffin for showing the world that romance is not dead. Much love and happiness to you both!

3.2 Miles

It’s 3.2 miles from our home to your work.

I’ve driven you every time I can for the past 2.5 years. And the truth is that I’ve been lying to you all that time. I say that I drive you to work because it’s easier or faster. And that’s true. But the real truth is that I do it for the simple fact that I get to be around you for a few minutes longer, at a time when it feels like there’s no one else on the world.


For 31 years I haven’t belonged anywhere. I’ve always been an outsider. But with you, I found a place where I belong. I finally found someone who understands me and loves me for all my faults. You’re an incredible person and even more incredible friend. The fact that you choose to spend your time with me truly humbles me.


I’m a pretty simple man Adelaide. Nothing was simpler than deciding to ask you to be my wife. So when you ask me to drive you to work those 3.2 miles I will do it forever. Because it’s not just a chance to make you coffee every morning, hold your hand or talk about the day together. It’s a chance to “belong” just a little bit longer. And I’d be a fool for letting even one of those chances go without taking advantage of it. All this time you thought I was doing a favor for you. The truth is that you’ve been doing the favor for me.

Emma 6 months [Glenview|Chicago Baby|Family photography, fun natural photos]

This adorable 6 month old cutie, belongs to one of my favorite couples. I shot their engagement and wedding photos, so I was really looking forward to meeting baby Emma.

(Just a little side note…although weddings and engagements keep me very very busy, I still  enjoy shooting baby and family sessions 🙂  I’m only available during the week Monday-Thursday. However for newborn photography I’d like to recommend my friend and colleague Carol. She also does family and event photography. Please check out her website Today Everlasting Photography here<<< and on Facebook<<<)

A real life baby doll, she’s just so flipping adorable!

Love this one!

Lifestyle fun family [children] photography, Glenview [Chicago] Illinois

I’ve been photographing this beautiful family since their older son Kishen was a newborn, now he’s three and he’s got a new baby brother. I love watching my clients families grow 🙂

Meet baby Milan, he’s perfect…just look at those lips!! I love it when babies make faces while they’re sleeping.

So sweet.

Here’s a great example on how to dress your family for photos…cute and casual.  Solids are always best, I don’t really care for all white or all black. Navy for the boys a deep red for Mom, and bare feet…perfect!

I’m not sure why Kishen started to cry…

…but a second later he game me his best fake smile 😉

And here’s a real smile!

Sweet, sweet baby.

The Flanagans, Fun family photos Chicago Illinois

I love the Flanagans 🙂  They are good friends of mine, it’s always great to see them.

I got to meet the newest member of their family Pepper. Isn’t she the most beautiful dog?

Casual yet formal family photos are a great way to document how your family changes from year to year…

…however, for me the real photos happen after the posing is done. I mean how often do you see Darth Vader playing the piano?

These kids are hysterical!

I love this one.

So cute!!!

The next two are my favorites.

Sweet Owen, you’re adorable.
