Marika's In-Home Maternity Session

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

I just finished processing Marika and Dean's in home maternity session and I could not be any happier with the result.  Marika had a perfect pregnancy glow and looked stunning in every shot. Their home, situated in the University Village of Chicago, is impeccable. It looked as if it was straight out of interior design magazines.  The light was amazing thanks to the large windows and tall ceilings.  This maternity session was perfect in every way.

About the Session

As soon as I walked through the door, the beauty of their home amazed me. With it's tall ceilings, and windows on every side, the light was soft yet bright enough. I wanted to showcase the stunning details of the living room and bedroom and that is where we spent most of our time. Marika's outfits were amazing. They fit snug and allowed the belly to be the focus of every image.  The love between Marika and Dean and their beaming excitement of what is to come in the following weeks was prevalent. I hope it translates well into these images.

I can't wait to photograph the newborn session.  Enjoy!

Family Holiday Photos at the Hap Magee Park | Danville Photographer

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

Family holiday photos too often tend to be slightly confined. Even though the images are meant to portray joy they somehow come short of that goal. It might be the time limit of the session (such as mini holiday sessions), or stiff new corduroy pants, cold weather, itchy wool sweaters but whatever the reason might be, this was not the case during this session. We had lots of fun and Charlotte was once again the star.

About the Family

I love this sweet family, always so stylish, ready to play and such good people.  This was our fifth session together. I started photographing them when Charlotte was just a few days old, then we did Charlotte's six month sessionone year and two years. Each session was remarkable and this one is no less. Charlotte is full of giggles and energy, a photographers dream.

Also, this is their last session as a family of three. Charlotte is going to be a big sister.

About the Session

Usually, I like to time my sessions for either early in the morning or late afternoon to catch the best light but believe it or not I shot this during the mid-day.  I was lucky to have some overcast and for the most part we stayed in the open shade.  The light ended up being perfect.  We used this park twice before in our sessions so we all felt very comfortable during the session.  It was such a success that I had a difficult time pulling the images for processing. I ended up with about 90 in the final gallery. As you see, I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites for this blog too. I just counted, 36... it must be a record.  Enjoy!
