Beautiful Family Photos on a Gloomy Fall Day

It was a Gloomy Fall Day  for my session with this lovely family, but that didn’t stop this little boy from lighting up the camera.  He was such a great smiler and was not the least bit cranky for it being cold and windy. Did you know that family sessions come in both color and …

Beautiful Maternity Session | Jacky T Photography | Chicago Newborn Photographer

When Tiffany and I talked about her maternity session she mentioned that she wanted a natural session that portrayed the beauty of her pregnancy. We agreed on an earthy, garden, sunset session. While shooting she even told me that they were planning on naming the baby Lucy which means light. I was thrilled because the …

Chicago Maternity Photographer | Sarah & Jeff | LeRoy Oaks, St. Charles

This has to be one of my favorite maternity sessions to date.  Sarah was simply stunning.  She glowed in every picture and we had such a blast.  It was a hazy muggy day but she was such a trooper climbing into wildflowers, wadding through a creek, and following me through all my ADD moments.  But …

Senior Emily | Jacky T Photography

I had my very first Senior session 2 weeks ago.  It was so much fun! After some camera malfunctions halfway through the first session, we rescheduled the second half for last week.  This was fun because if gave Emily a chance to have two totally different looks.  She is a stunningly beautiful young woman who …

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, …

Baby Dusty | Jacky T Photography | Chicago Newborn Photographer

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 …

Spunky Sophia | Naperville Riverwalk | Jacky T Photography

Some ages are easier to photograph children than others. The eighteen month to three years old range is typically the hardest time to get a child to sit for a picture and look at the camera.  Forget about even getting a smile…right?  Not with custom photography by Jacky T Photography.  I always get a smile. …

Four Generations | Jacky T Photography

There were 4 generations present at this shoot.  Almost 100 years spans between these four lovely ladies and I was honored to be able to capture it.  We were very busy during this session and there are a lot of pictures because not only was it an extended family shoot we also had family pictures …
