I’ve been photographing this beautiful family since before their twins were born. They just got a baby sister so I wanted a photo of the twins in a similar scenario to see the difference in time and to show the newborn….
This could be their last year living in the city so getting the Chicago skyline in the shot was essential and beautiful now that its fall…best time to shoot family photos in chicago in my option.
Love this stoic photo of a father with his baby girl. No smiles and no looking at the camera…have to sneak those in for every shoot although they often aren’t the shots people choose.

When the 6 month old girl you are photographing lives in the one of the best designed, most beautiful houses you’ve ever been in…making photos is a dream come true. And when the Mother is the one who designed it and has a plethora of great ideas, props, clothing, pillows, fabrics, and amazing rooms to choose from I am pretty much in heaven!
April 9, 2016Flowers blooming in the alleys
Yellow flowers are starting to bloom in the alleys around pilsen. This could mean only one thing…the spring moving season has arrived!
Squashed by a Wild Thing as a newborn, then plopped as a 1 year old onto the pavement of the University of Chicago campus to channel the academic tremors…baby Darwin is poised to lead a very complex and interesting life! Already looking forward to age 2!
Designer Lizzie Greco has a small part of keeping the art of handmade paper alive by building her business Craftbelly Frames + Mirrors around it. Each frame she makes begins as an unfinished wood frame that she wraps tightly with handmade decorative paper to impart a “painted-on” effect. A majority of the papers she uses are imported from other countries where the art of paper-making is alive and well. These papers include Lokta, Indian Rag, Chiyogami, and Katazome-shi.
Lizzie has have come up with a small collection for me that are elegant and subdued but beautiful and original. The collection consists of 7 different frames available in a full range of sizes from 4×6 to 20×24.

April 26, 2011Photos of a newborn baby with her goldendoodle Dog
Scout is a gorgeous honey colored labradoodle with so much character and the greatest disposition. He has welcomed his newborn baby sister and stands ready to serve!
I am pretty sure Scout knows how gorgeous he is but he isn’t conceited….he is well mannered, playful, and sweet.
Zoe was just over a week old when I photographed her. So tiny and cute!
She only covers the length of half of…
Below are the pages from a 20 page 8″x8″ maternity/newborn photo album. I shot both the pregnancy and the newborn baby and the resulting book is going to be an awesome culmination of the mothers style and attitude, my interpretation of that style, and the baby’s newborn-ness! It’s a totally unique piece that will be passed on to Sydney when she’s older.

Meet Flynn…a precocious Wicker Park 3-month-old who uses “Goodnight Gorilla” for a pillow while delving into “Stories for men–13 Robust tales by America’s most virile men”
Obviously Flynn isn’t your ordinary 3-month-old boy….he has no apparent appetite for ring rattles, rubber giraffes, or bendy balls…he goes straight in for Faulkner and Caldwell.
His excessive reading and curiosity have exhausted his parents entirely….now Flynn waits until they fall asleep to get his reading in….
