I met today's lovely family through a referral from a family I also LOVED working with. Today's family has a 19 month old daughter and a 2 week old son..... not only do they have their hands full, they were relaxed and adorable.
I remember the days when my oldest was 2 weeks old, we were sleep deprived, ragged and it was complete and utter chaos. Having more than one kid, especially when both are under 2 is a challenge and Mom and Dad handled it like pros.
I won over big sis with a dance party and held her while I photographer her parents and her little brother. It took bribing of raisins and a lot of patience, and with Mom's help we were able to get a photo of the two of them at the end.
I love being around a family with a girl who then have a boy.... it's getting me excited for our little guy to arrive this Winter.
I wanted to share some of my favorite photos in today's sneak peek and love that the family pics aren't perfect (that's not real life with 2 kids under 2). My favorite is where the little guy is looking at me all peacefully and the other three were living life.
They did awesome on their first family photo shoot and I loved that I got to be a part of it.

I was contacted to photograph a baby shower at an adorable event space in Bucktown, Urban Icing. It is bright, clean and the perfect space to celebrate the glowing Mom to be.
I was unaware going in that the sex of the baby was unknown... they did a beautiful job with the decor for that. I always admire those who can wait to find out... I am not that Mom!
Her sisters, family and friends gathered around to celebrate, as well as this baby's oldest cousin. I loved the way the presents were opened, a gift was given to each guest to open and they all shared what was inside.
I loved being a part of this sweet celebration and wanted to share some of the images from the party.
