Dusty’s 3 Month Mini Session

I love when I get to see the babies that I photograph as newborns later for mini sessions, because they grow up too fast! Dusty was so cute, full of giggles and muscles. He is SO strong, at 3 months he was holding his head up really high and even standing, with mommy and daddy’s …

3 Month Old Jaxson | Jacky T Photography

When I spoke with Jaxson’s mom before the session, she told me that they liked creative, out of the box type pictures but still tasteful and beautiful.  So this entire session was so much fun because we were able to play with a lot of fun things and I was able to go a bit …

Fun at the Farm | Jacky T Photography

This session took place in early November and we were lucky enough to have the most beautiful weather.  We went to Volkening Farm in Schaumburg and the girls had a great time playing on the farm.  This family was full of fun and the girls LOVED knock, knock jokes. We had a great day and …

1 Month Old Portraits and Lifestyle Photography | Chicago, IL

People often ask me why I only do newborn photos on babies ages 3-10 days old and my answer is always the same, because that is the only time that we can get those really sweet sleeping, squishy, curled up, propped up poses.  However that is not to say that you can not get photos …

Owen Turns 1 With a Cake Smash

Owen came to visit my studio and we celebrated his first birthday. Owen is a special little guy because he shares a birthday with ME!!  We had a lot of fun. Even though he can’t walk yet, Owen is a mover and a shaker. He was all over the place, but seriously such a happy …

Freezing Family Fun | Jacky T Photography | Family Photographer

I called this session Freezing Family Fun because who would have thought we would be combating 20 degree temperatures in mid November, but that’s exactly what happened.  So to make the best of it Mom and I decided to go to Brookfield Zoo for our shoot, because I knew they had a few indoor places …

Baby Joshua | Chicago Newborn Photographer | Jacky T Photography

Meet Joshua.  This little sweetheart had the cutest head of strawberry blond hair ever!  His daddy is a firefighter so we had to do some fun Fireman shots.  Overall, we had a great session although Joshua was adamant about not wanting to be on his stomach.  He would be sound asleep and we would gently …

Sean, Kate, and Jack | Jacky T Photography | Naperville, IL

This little family was just too cute.  Their son, Jack, was the sweetest little one year old and very well behaved. He had no meltdowns, and did some great smiling, which is not an easy task for any one year old.  This family is an old neighbor of mine and they wanted pictures at their …

Embrace the Chaos | Jacky T Photography | Family Photography

During the shoot I asked mom how she handled four kids when I have trouble with two, and she said to me, “You just sort of embrace the chaos.”  I love it!  It’s so Carpe Diem, and it’s the meaning behind photography.  Freeze the moment, capture the memories, remember their little faces forever.  I had …

Naperville Family Photography | Jacky T Photography

    Last weekend I met a wonderful family at their Naperville Home.  It’s a fairly new home and they wanted to have their pictures taken there because they were very proud of it.  Lucky for me, they had some beautiful landscapes that made for great backdrops. The best part about this family were the …
