Fall Mini Sessions ~ Chicago Family Photographer

They are back – MINI SESSIONS!

This year I am trying something different for mini sessions.  I would love to hold them at the Chicago Botanic Garden.  This place is beyond amazing every where you look – a perfect backdrop for fall portraits.  There is a photographer fee to shoot in the garden so I am asking a minimum of 5 families sign-up.  Also, please note there is a parking fee for the garden that you would be responsible for but what a great place to go on a little hike afterwards or have a picnic!

Mini sessions are perfect for families that are looking for portraits for those photo holiday cards, to give me a try or to get a few updated portraits for gifts!  Whatever the reason I hope to see you in a few weeks.

Each family will get a 20 minute session, 10-12 full resolution digital files in color and black and white that will be e-mailed within 2 weeks after the session for $500.  Prints, cards, canvases and all other products are available for purchase at regular prices.

September 21st at the Chicago Botanic Garden

Families are booked in 30 minute time slots starting at 8:00am on Saturday, September 21st.











The fine print…  $250 deposit is required to secure your mini session time, the balance is due at the session.  Your session time is not secure until your deposit is made!  Mini sessions cannot be used for newborn sessions.  Babies not pushing up will be photographed in parents arms for the duration of the session due to the developmental stage of the baby.  Deposits are non-refundable.  I’m always happy to answer any questions.

Chicago Lifestyle Maternity Photographer

So get ready for a huge post on these lifestyle maternity portraits I hinted at earlier.  This soon to be family of three is gorgeous… they were so fun and just went along with my silliness.  I can’t wait to meet that little one August – it will be here to soon and that means back to school.  Anyway, these images (to me) just show the beauty and miracle of being pregnant.  Hanging out at home, simple and filled with love.

Here we go…

Boudoir? ~ Chicago Boudoir Photographer

So, the title says it all… yes, boudoir.  Now before everyone gets “those” pictures in their heads hear me out.  I am not looking to be a cheesy or a “in your face” boudoir photographer.  I have actually been wresting with what to call it and boudoir is the closest word I can come up with.  I attended Tanja Lippert’s workshop, um, two years ago and fell in love with boudoir.  This workshop was so inspirational, so amazing… it really hit home.  She made me come out of my comfort zone right on the spot, which was surprising but also needed.  I loved everything they covered and the experience working one-on-one with the beautiful woman that day was perfect.  I also shot the entire workshop on film.  I am so thankful I did because it made me love film even more!

Then, shortly after attending the workshop I got pregnant with the twins and really had no energy (I was sleeping about 16 hours a day it seemed) to further explore a new part of my business.  Now that I am getting more comfortable with having five kiddos at home I am ready to jump back in.  Below you can see some images from the workshop.  I did not post the more revealing images as this is a family blog.  But the images I posted can give you an idea of what I hope to create in adding boudoir to my business.  Also below is a link to a Pinterest board I made of the style more along the lines of what boudoir is to me.

Now why am I posting all of this…I am having a model call.  If the images you see below and what is shown in the Pinterest board is in line with your style contact me.  I am looking to build my portfolio for boudoir only at this time.  A signed model release is required.  The shoot would take place on location (i.e. your home or if you want to splurge on a hotel room that is fine with me but not necessary).  I might use a combination of film and digital but all finished images (between 25-35) will be presented to you on a flash drive as a thank you.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this model call.  If you are not interest but might know someone who is please pass along this information.
