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

She had a fanclub from day one. What's not to love about two big brothers to keep watch and give hourly kisses?
I spent some time at this sweet family's home when things had settled a bit after Nova's birth. I was offered invisible cups of tea and witnessed a few lion and leopard impersonations between taking photos of Nova in her natural element. She seemed quite at home in the middle of the action!
Not to be ignored: the beautiful details and carefully curated space that Nova and her fanclub call home. Class act, I tell you!

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. ✨
