One Bright Spring Morning | Brooklyn, NYC Family Photographer

The thing about Brooklyn families is that they're resilient.

We could have rescheduled this shoot on a different (warmer) day in the middle of spring, but we may not have been blessed by the crisp, clean sunlight that seemed to be winking at our determination. And besides, there was a coffee shop just around the corner.

After chasing sun and shadows for a few minutes, we ducked inside to warm ourselves with hot drinks, peer out the window at passersby, and shriek with delight at the sight of a garbage truck.

Brooklyn families are tough and resilient, and this family is made of pure gold. ✨

All Grown Up | Classic Chicago Family Photos

This beautiful and classic session was a birthday gift for mom. It had been a few years since their last family portrait, so we picked a classic Chicago location and were gifted with a beautiful summer afternoon. If you know this family, you'll know they're some of the most warm-hearted people in all of Chicago. It took very little nudging to bring out the sense of love, respect, and connection this family shares.

I just love Lurie Garden in Millennium park for the way it changes with each season. It's always beautiful, but the colors of the flowers and foliage are different every time I visit! Photos on the Nichols Bridgeway that connects the Art Institute with the park were the surprise addition to the photo session and they happen to be my favorite images. That gorgeous Chicago architecture makes for the most wonderful backdrop. 

I'm currently booking for sessions in September and October. If Lurie Garden is a special place to you too, let's create some beautiful photos that celebrate autumn in Chicago!
