we ♥




Our three-year-old’s latest hobbies include climbing fallen trees, picking flowers, collecting leaves, twigs and stones and bringing them A-L-L home!

So this weekend when we had that amazing Autumn weather instead of strolling city sidewalks we packed the car with pumpkins and blankets and teepees and drove to the woods to capture it all! Needless to say, incase the photos don’t give it away, it was a reallllly good day and this happy Mama got her updated family photos too!

So here’s what I’m thinking…this Fall before Chicago gets super cold come join us in the woods! I’d love to hold some of these mini sessions and capture your family too.

The details you need to know:

On Saturday, November 11 join us for a 30 minute styled session in LaBagh woods, you will receive a collection of 15 images (full resolution files, sent to you as a digital download to print as you please). Total cost: $100.

Availability is going to be limited, as I will only be taking on a few families. So run, get those Christmas gifts sorted! You can get in touch at

*I love creating for individuals and want you to feel loved and beautiful…so if flower crowns are not your thing, let me know and I can let you in on some other ideas I have for Mamas and boys alike. Rx
