In Korean culture, the 100th day after a child's birth is a significant milestone, and I was so honored to help this sweet Chicago family celebrate Eliana’s 100th day. It was a beautiful midsummer Chicago morning and the wildflowers in Lurie Garden (the family’s location of choice) were in peak color! We wandered the garden in search of flowers to sniff, shade to duck under, and pretty spots perfect for photos.Read More
You might know that my whole family fell deeply in love with Chicago's conservatory scene while we lived there, especially for combating cabin fever in the winter months and on rainy days. We visited the Garfield and Lincoln Park conservatories more times than I can count and found our favorite rooms and corners to visit each time.Read More
I honestly can't remember what life was like without him.
My son turned three last week, and I took these portraits so we can always remember what life looked and felt like at the milestone of 3 years old. We rode a water taxi into the Loop for a fun little adventure, and the rest of the photos were taken in the heart of the city on the Chicago Riverwalk. When I look at these images, I see his thoughtfulness, enthusiasm, joy, and the beautiful lightheartedness of childhood.
I'm so happy to have these photographs that celebrate my boy and the hum of our city!
The Chicago Riverwalk is my new favorite location in downtown Chicago for photos and meeting up for an after-work walk. If this spot is a favorite of yours too, I'd love to photograph you here! Just send me an email and mention this idea. See you there. :)
