I had the pleasure of meeting little Emily and being the first to take her photos to help announce her to the Little Beans family. Her Mom, Shannon said she will soon be behind the register in the baby Bjorn helping welcome families to their wonderful indoor playground in Chicago.
Emily is a very lucky little lady, her older brother Will absolutely adores her. It was so sweet watching him gently hold her, watch her and see the love he has for her on his face. Her older sister Sydney is smitten as well... I could see the excitement in her face that she has a little sister to love and to play with.
Emily was less than 2 weeks old for her shoot and was perfect. She let Mom know when she wanted to eat, Dad doted on her like a pro. Emily was awake for part of the shoot, and snoozed the rest of the time in her loving family's arms.
I am always impressed when a Mom comes in less than 2 months after giving birth and is as put together as Shannon was..... hair done, makeup applied, coordinating outfits for all, hair product for Will's hair, a brush for Sydney's hair, a prop for the shoot. Kudos Shannon! I think I first applied makeup 3 months after each of my girls were born, LOL.
Here are some of my favorite images from Emily's shoot, I had a lot of fun with this wonderful family. I finally got to take a sibling photo where the kids are stacked on top of each other! Sydney was relaxing on her older brother and I suggested we put Emily on top. Her older siblings were so sweet and gentle, and the outcome is adorable.
There are two locations for Little Beans Cafe, I highly recommend bringing your kids to either the Chicago or Evanston location. So much fun!
