One of the things I love most about what I do is the real-time connections I get with people. Often times, my bride-and-groom couples come back to me for a newborn shoot once they become proud parents. Sometimes, they even re-engage me for a special family shoot many months later, when Little One is not so little! This continual evolution of the people I meet is so cool and simply authentic.
Take Phil and Joline, for instance.
I first met this lovely couple – and sweet Baby Miles – when he was just a sleepy, little thing. Look at him now! He’s practically off and running! About two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family of three together for the first time at Humboldt Park. (You might remember that Papa Phil had to go halfway across the world just days after Miles was born.)
Phil is currently in healthcare and was in business school and also a photographer, and Joline is in medical sales. Baby Miles is their boss.
Bright eyed and extremely curious, Miles is now 10 months old and so loveable! Turns out he actually had a double ear infection during the shoot that wasn’t diagnosed until the day after. You would never have guessed anything was bothering this happy little chub! Scroll through to see photos from their sweet shoot.
