It was another gray wintry day in Chicago when we shot this mini family session with the Patels. Meet Neepa, Sandeep, and their four-month old baby boy Shay, who was positively a little ray of sunshine. All bundled up at Busse Woods, the new family of three looked such at ease. I could see how much Neepa and Sandeep loved each other and the love that they had for sweet baby Shay. By the way, doesn’t Shay have the BEST lips (and lip curls!) ever? It was wonderful meeting this family and watching the sweet way they interacted. I have a good job.

This post could be titled “How to get the best possible photos from your session.” Despite the bitter cold of December in Chicago, Mom & Dad smiled and laughed through our entire mini session*. Vilayphone and Curtis made it fun for the baby, which made it fun and easy for me, because 11-month old CJ was happy and smiley the whole time – and who doesn’t love smiley babies? From this photographer’s lips to your ears, a great attitude is the key to a great session.

For this holiday session, the Atkins family, and their dog Peanut, came over to my home for the shoot. While they stayed warm inside the house, I decked the Christmas pine tree out back with colorful ornaments and set up a variety of fun holiday props to brighten up a wintry day.

Merry holidays, Atkins family!

You might recognize this cutie. Six-year old Ari has been featured in a number of commercials and print pieces for a variety of brands, including The Land of Nod, Target, ETA hand2mind, VTechKids, and Kohl’s. When her parents Annie and Arlo asked me to do her professional headshots, I didn’t hesitate. It’s not often that I work with a pint-size pro – especially one whose poise and listening skills rival most adults I shoot. With a multitude of child models sporting far too adult-like expressions and being overly made up, hair did, sweet Ari here is a refreshing breath of fresh air. To prove it, scroll down for proof that mini models that look and act their age do, in fact, exist.

Ari might be the next big thing – that smile is certainly one to keep an eye on.
