Brown Family | Chicago Family Photographer

    I’m catching up on fall sessions that I never Blogged.  This family braved a super cold November day but their son was so cute, no one noticed the cold.  We had to be really creative with this session because days before a huge storm hit and blew all the leaves off the trees, …

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 and Friends at the Apple Orchard | Jacky T Photography

When faced with a color image or a black and white image, I am almost always drawn to the color one, however Mr. Owen was made for the black and white photos. I LOVE so many black and whites which is truly a first for me. I think it is his porcelain skin and clear …
