Introducing Sofia…an adorable 3 month old who will charm you with her sweet demeanor, her cute button nose, her beautiful eyes, her blue tutu, and her big hair bows!
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….
I’ve been photographing Aiden and Ave before they were even born….
Their Mom wanted to document her pregnancy with twins….
They were born 6 minutes apart in 2008….I photographed them outside about 7 months later.
Last year we went downtown to the Lurie gardens and Millenium park to shoot the growing family…
And this year they had a new baby brother to join them….
What a fantastic family…
I first photographed Tatiana in 2007 shortly after she arrived in Chicago from Guatemala. She was fantastic! So cute and full of energy! Last week I got to photograph her again. It was a complete pleasure! She is gorgeous, creative and imaginative, and one of the most polite 4 year olds I have ever met. We hunted for dinosaur bones, pretended we were palentologists, collected leaves and sticks and looked for Captain Hook. It was such a satisfying day! When she left she said so genuinely “It was very nice spending time with you. Thank you.” wow! Thank you Tatiana for coming back to Chicago so I could photograph you again! I am posting both then and now photos of her below….

Maybelline sponsored Candace Bushnell’s (creator of Sex and the City) new webisode called “The Broadroom”. The actresses in the Broadroom are Jennie Garth, Mary McMann, Jennifer Esposito, Talia Balsam, and Lauren Devereux. Concurrently, Mabelline sponsored a contest looking for Colorful women….regular day to day women with colorful stories. I was chosen as a contest winner through my entry which explained my passion as a photographer and creator of a photographic children’s book called Drums, dancers and a bird as big as you! , which was published this year. The contest winner’s stories will be integrated into the stories of the characters in The Broadroom.
