Session Share: Chicago Family Summer Session http://smmphotography.net/blog/2017/8/session-share-chicago-family-summer-session Living out in the suburbs I never get the chance to venture out to the city, let alone for a portrait session!  I had so much fun with this family and fell in love with this location.  The combination of wildflowers against the Chicago skyline is such a great contrast and adds something so different to these photos.

Session Share: Abigail Turns One! http://smmphotography.net/blog/2017/6/session-share-abigail-turns-one Almost two years ago, I launched my Baby Membership Plan.  Parents can have baby's entire year paid and scheduled ahead of time so they don't have to worry about it when the time comes for that next milestone.  (Plus there are some amazing perks and surprises along the way!)

Enter my first plan members.  Little Abigail's parents asked me to photograph the two of them when they first found out they were pregnant and wanted to use the photos to announce to their families the big news.  This baby was definitely a blessing as they had waiting long and hard to get pregnant.  We then did their official maternity photos a few months on, newborn photos once she arrived and then her six month photos.  When it came time to schedule her one year session I just could NOT believe how fast that time went!  I've literally watched this beautiful little girl grow from a tiny little gummy bear in her mommy's tummy to this spunky, bubbly little one year old!  

Happy 1st Birthday, Abigail!  I cannot wait to keep documenting special milestones in your life!

Mother's Day: The Hurley Family http://smmphotography.net/blog/2017/5/mothers-day-the-hurley-family When you've known a mom only through social media and mutual friends and share the love for educating on food allergies for your kiddos, a friend is born.

Meet Jamie, this beautiful mom of two who runs her own daycare business and has the most amazing stories and laugh to go along with it!

She is such a sweetheart and is always putting my name and Smm out into the community so I had to give back and give her a session.  And can you blame me?  Who wouldn't want to photograph them?!?!  Hello beautiful smiles!!

Thank you for all of the support, Jamie (and Brae thanks you for the NUT FREE treats!!!)

Sweet Baby Bridget http://smmphotography.net/blog/2017/5/sweet-baby-bridget I had the pleasure of photographing this family about two years ago.  It was the whole family including grandparents, siblings and grandchildren and they were probably the sweetest and most sincere family I've ever worked with!  So when I got an email that baby girl #3 would soon be joining the family I immediately smiled and couldn't wait to work with them again!  Welcome sweet baby Bridget!

California Beach Sunset Session, April 2017 http://smmphotography.net/blog/2017/4/california-beach-sunset-session-april-2017 Since the NAPCP Retreat back in January, I knew I had to come back to the beach and take some family portraits at sunset.  Thankfully, a family wedding and my husband's work trip lined up perfectly and we made a family vacation out of it, with my camera in tow!  

I first "met" Monique about 8 years ago on the What To Expect website when a small group of us were all trying to get pregnant.  We ended up forming our small group on Facebook and have formed this amazing bond-- with some of us never meeting!  We span the globe from all over the United States to Ireland, the U.K. and Australia!

When I announced wanting to do family sessions on the beach, she quickly responded and we couldn't wait to finally meet in person!

Both of her children are exactly how I imagined from her posts and even her ex-husband came along to get some photos with the kids.  This absolutely made my heart smile because I believe that children should see their family in photos, IN PRINTED PHOTOS! No matter the situation.  Your parents are a part of you and the very reason you are who you are.  So, needless to say, the kids were excited to have both parents with them, having fun in the chilly Pacific Ocean and their toes in the sand.

Monique, my fellow Blue Lady, I am soooo happy to finally meet you!  We've all been through so much and truly are all such great friends!  I can't wait to plan another trip out to Cali and do this again!

If you'd like to get on my wait list for the next round of beach photos and available dates go to my post with session details and shoot me an email!

Why Grandparents Should Be in Photos http://smmphotography.net/blog/2017/3/why-grandparents-should-be-in-photos "What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies." ~Rudy Giuliani

Grandparents are such an essential part of our lives.  They are the cornerstones to our families and are always there when you need a good hug (or a sweet treat!)

Grandparent sessions are some of my favorite sessions.  Gift them a session where they can sit and play with their grandkids and then update their portraits throughout their home. These have been very popular since digital photography and social media have replaced our desire to actually print our photos and display them throughout our homes. I think photographs and albums are important parts to our family's past and future so we can show them different times throughout our growing lives.

Book one now!

Things Moms Say During Their Session http://smmphotography.net/blog/2017/3/things-moms-say-during-their-session Being a mom myself, I completely understand what it's like to round up your family, coordinate outfits, make sure everyone stays clean and ready for photos and get Dad on-board ALL WHILE you have to get yourself ready.  Take a breath and know that you're not alone!  Check out these sayings that I hear at almost every session:

  1. My child just bumped/scratched themself, can you photoshop that out?
    Most of the time, yes, I can.  I usually will edit it out of one photo so that you can see what the others will look like but I won't adjust the other photos until after your session premier.
     
  2. There's no way my child cooperated, you probably didn't even get one good photo!
    I promise, I will keep shooting until I know we have good photos for you to choose from.  You'd be surprised at how many times moms cry happy tears because they had no idea their child even smiled during the session!  Sometimes I also have the kiddos come with me on a small adventure to give mom a break and we can get some "secret" photos for mom and dad.  I have my ways ;)
     
  3. I just had a baby and haven't lost my baby weight.
    It's all about the angles and cropping!  Also, especially at newborn sessions, you JUST had a baby!  I make sure that your photos capture those moments with your precious, new little one.  

Have no fear!  This is why I do what I do.  I love helping moms get those photos they're going to cherish forever.  I'm here to help you!

Traditionally, we make corned beef and cabbage complete with a side of pizza for those who are "picky".  This year, we're going to try making some shamrock gummies (thanks, Southern Living Magazine!) and have some friends over for dinner and movies.

Here's a little sweety to make your day more festive!

May the luck of the Irish be with you all!
