Knouse Senior Session | Northwest Indiana + Chicagoland Senior Photographer

So, Emily is my niece.

I distinctly recall the day Emily was born. I remember the weather, talking to her Mama a few hours after she gave birth to her dainty little girl, I remember my crazy, short blonde hair…

As a toddler, she had the most amazing curls on her head.

Later this month, I’ll be flying to Colorado Springs to photograph my nephew, Evan, for his senior photos.

I feel so lucky to play this role in my nieces and nephews lives, I get to capture their cuteness and their personalities during this exciting time.

I’m grateful that I get to be behind the camera but not nearly as grateful as I am to have them in my family.

{Emily. Class of 2015}

$500 | 90 minutes | 2-3 outfit changes

Matty’s Cake Smash | Northwest Indiana + Chicagoland Child Photographer

The Kosinski family actually lives in Washington state. They have family that lives in Northwest Indiana, so I’ve been lucky enough to photograph them three times in the past year.

I met Matty when he was just three months old, it has been such a joy to photograph him throughout his first year. Cake smash sessions are a perfect way to celebrate a little one’s entrance into toddlerhood. Matty was a great cake smasher. I mean, he wore a bow tie, how could it go wrong?!

Cake Smash Session: $300
30 minutes, 20 digital images, cake + props provided.

The Drake Family | northwest indiana + chicagoland family photographer

I’m so thankful for families like the Drake family. They choose me to capture their family year after year and each time it becomes more and more intimate. I am honored to capture their littles ones as they grow.

We tried something different from our usual and went to the beach. It was just FUN. There’s no other word to describe it. Jaxon LOVED the water and it wasn’t too long before he was soaked but Mom and Dad just let it go and they enjoyed their family time, as I captured it.

I love the results.

Family Sunset Session:
$150 due upon booking
$350 40 digital high-resolution images and the rights, due within 7 days of the session, one hour, on-location

I love it beth…couldn’t ask for a better photographer. You are amazing. Thank you for always being so patient with my kids and capturing truly awesome memories.

7 minutes

Three important rules when you are a Mom with a love for photography:

1. learn how to use your camera – really learn, not just guess.
2. always know where your camera is
3. don’t instruct, don’t interrupt play, just let them be.

11:51

I notice Clara sitting on my bed sitting with the iPad.
