Olivia’s parents, Rebecca and Gustavo are getting married this fall, and I will be capturing their wedding day. I had a great time getting to know them better during their family photo session, and loved meeting their adorable daughter, Olivia.

The photo below is one of my favorites from this 1 year milestone session. I love the interaction between Olivia and her mom.Evanston Baby PhotographerJust clap your hands, and yell “Yay!” and you will get the sweetest smiles from Olivia 😉Evanston Baby Photographer

This daddy-daughter moment between these two is adorable. You can tell how much Olivia adores her parents. She was happiest when she was with either her mommy or daddy.

12 months is one of my favorite ages to photograph. I love how at this age little ones become more mobile, and are quite curious about the world around them. Olivia found this flower, and loved looking at it. You had to keep an eye on her though – otherwise she would try to eat the flower 😉Evanston Baby Photographer

Look at that sweet little smirk on Olivia’s face. Moments like the one below are my favorite to capture. Chicago Baby PhotographerChicago Baby PhotographerWhile walking around the gardens at Cantigny in Wheaton, Olivia saw this little fountain and was instantly intrigued. The photo above is one of my favorites from this cutie’s 1 year photo session. I know this photo will look beautiful hanging in Rebecca and Gustavo’s home.

Olivia wasn’t a fan of the grass, so her mommy and daddy held her while she ate her cupcake. Her expressions during the cake smash were adorable.Chicago Baby PhotographerChicago Baby Photographer

Chicago Baptism Photographer | Penelope’s Baptism

As a Chicago baptism photographer, I enjoyed photographing Penelope’s baptism at Saint Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church in Aurora. Penelope is adorable, and has such a sweet personality.Chicago Baptism Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing a baptism at Saint Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church last summer, and it was great being back there again. Chicago Baptism Photographer

It was another special moment from the day.Chicago Baptism PhotographerChicago Baptism PhotographerChicago Baptism PhotographerChicago Baptism PhotographerChicago Baptism PhotographerChicago Baptism Photographer

After the baptism and some family photos, everyone headed over to Hugo’s Frog Bar in Naperville. The restaurant’s reception room was decorated beautifully. You can tell that Stacy put a lot of effort into the details for her daughter’s special day.

I love how Stacy chose a different bible verse for each table at the restaurant. The mint colored picture frames with table numbers, and the rose centerpieces looked beautiful.

Wheaton Baby Photographer | Owen (7 months)

As a Wheaton baby photographer, it was fun capturing 7-month-old, Owen. He looked adorable in his bow tie and plaid shirt.Wheaton Baby Photographer

I especially enjoy photographing babies around this age, because each one has their own personality. Owen is such a calm baby. He also has an equally adorable serious face and smiling face:)Wheaton Baby Photographer

The last time I saw Owen was when he was 3 months old. It’s amazing how much he has changed since then. The first year milestones are great to capture, because your little one is going to grow up a lot in just 12 months. Wheaton Baby Photographer

The photo below is one of my favorites from this milestone session. I love the little smirk on Owen’s face.Wheaton Baby Photographer

I recently acquired this vintage apple crate, and it is perfect for giving babies a little extra support for sitting up. It also looked great with Owen and his overalls. Wheaton Baby Photographer

Thanks M Family for having me capturing this precious time in your lives. I’m looking forward to capturing more special moments for you in the future. Wheaton Baby Photographer Are you looking for a Wheaton baby photographer or a family photographer?

Shelby’s mom, Kelly, brought along some adorable outfits for her daughter to wear. I especially like this tutu and flower crown. It looked so cute on Shelby.Carol Stream Baby Photographer

I’ve been photographing Shelby since she was a newborn, and it’s amazing to see how much she has grown up and changed since then. The first year of your baby’s life will go by fast, which makes it that much more important to have these milestones captured.Carol Stream Baby Photographer
