Finally! I’ve been trying to get good photos of my kids and my nephew for 5 years and today must have been my lucky day; I somehow managed to get a few shots of all three of them together as well as my two kids together! I thought it would never happen! This was only […]
McMonigal Fall Family Session
Look at these cuties! Of course, I’m biased as they’re my niece and nephew, but I just want to squeeze them! We were supposed to do a little session last Sunday but we had a super rainy weekend. Lucky for us, Chicago is having the most perfect fall weather the last few days. And the […]
Windy City Summer…pick 13 of our 52 adventures in Chicago!
Ah, summer in the city…so much to do, how to choose?! My summers are quite different than they once were. Pre-kids they were filled with street fests, outdoor beer gardens, al fresco dining and movies in Grant Park.

Kids in the Park…pick 12 of our 52 adventures in Chicago!
Lincoln Park is such a beautiful park and jammed packed with things to do!

Sweet baby Chloe
Beautiful baby Chloe is a dream come true for Melissa & Dave. I met them through the most unusual of circumstances; my sister, Lisa, was their surrogate. I’m going to be honest, when Lisa first told me she wanted to be a surrogate, I thought she was crazy! Personally, I’m not the biggest fan of […]
My little guy…15 months old!
My sweet snuggly, guy is already 15 months old! So hard to believe! I feel like his birthday was just yesterday. Yet, he’s changed so much in the last three months. He finally started walking, yippie! No more crawling all over the place, tearing up his pants and eating anything he comes across. He’s such […]
