I spent yesterday evening with six month-old cutie, Elnathan. He is such a curious little boy. His eyes were skeptically watching my every move. He was very comfortable in front of the camera, but always made sure mom and dad were around.
I graduated college with Daniella six years ago. We have since gone our separate ways. However I found out that she and her husband Emmanuel had moved to Chicago. She was also pregnant with her first and delivering with the same midwives and at the same hospital as I delivered Elias!
We reconnected last year and have been in contact since. It is so great to have a friend with whom I can connect with and swap mom stories. I look forward to seeing Elnathan grow, and maybe next time he’ll feel comfortable enough around me to smile for the camera.
A year ago, we were in downtown Chicago shooting a maternity session for Leo and Debbie. This year, so much has changed in their lives. Their session this year included their incredibly cute baby boy (check out that hair!) and we even got a few shots in front of their new house.
Many of these were shot near Adler Planetarium on the lakefront. They’re hoping to get some shots in front of the skyline every year.
It’s wonderful to know this family, and even more wonderful to witness the many blessings they’ve received.
We have gotten to know this family really well over the past year. Their beautiful daughter is just two months older then our son. We’ve enjoyed supporting each other through this crazy journey of parenthood. We were so excited when they asked us to do a mini session for them. They are such a beautiful family.
