When I got to Peyton’s house, I could not believe that he was officially ONE! It really feels like yesterday, I was there photographing him at 3-months …. sleeping in baskets and on Dr. Seuss books. Relaxed and low-key.
This session was so different, but I loved every minute of trying to keep up with this little cutie patootie.
We were all over the house … making a mess everywhere (sorry, Jen & Kyle)! We were crawling through green tunnels (well Peyton was …. I am pretty sure I would not make it through it), tossing around balls, and playing with his puppies. It was non-stop action and beyond fun to document.
We wrapped up his one-year session with a smash-the-cake set. I’m not sure if it was the green frosting or this small little cake, but Peyton was more intrigued by it than interested in eating it. Not really the photos we were hoping for, but still super adorable.
So here he is! Peyton …. already … ONE!
Mr. I’m-too-cool-for-school right here. I mean how adorable is this photo?
Peyton was more interested in playing with the cupcake than actually eating it. I wish I had his willpower to turn down a chocolate cupcake.
Happy (belated) birthday, Peyton! I can’t wait to continue to watch you grow, little man.
I was beyond excited to meet Hayley because I was one of the lucky people to know that Lori and Brian were expecting this little cutie back in August. Lori and Brian decided to do a maternity reveal session to announce they were pregnant with me, so I was thrilled to be able to document their first little when she arrived in February.
Hayley is just perfect. She is so tiny! I immediately fell in love with her little hands and the sweetest face I have ever seen! Oh, and she pretty much has a room that every little girl could only dream of. It is ALL pink and her closet … well let’s just say that she has a wardrobe Rachel Zoe might be jealous of.
Congrats again, Lori & Brian!
Lori and I met over four years ago. I was a little intern working at a public relations agency downtown, and she was my officemate’s supervisor. Whenever she would come into our office, she would stop and chat about life with us….always being bubbly and energetic. She was the type of person I gravitate toward and one of the few people I really connected with while working in PR.
So when Lori reached out (such PR speak!), a few weeks ago with a big secret that she wanted me to document, I couldn’t have been more excited or honored. It had been nearly 4 years since I last saw her, and I was thrilled to capture some photos of her, her adorable hubby, Brian, and their photogenic dog, Drake, to announce the important milestone for their family. You see, being the marketing brained lady Lori is, she wanted a fun, creative way to tell their friends and family that they were preggers.
We met in the West Loop just a few blocks from Lori and Brian’s place and spent time at a nearby park with beautiful afternoon light, tons of fun props and a sense of total excitement that we were getting some of the first pictures for Baby O’s memory book. Here are a few of my favs. And Lori, I’m sure this post isn’t written or punctuated in AP style….but I’m an “artist” now. :)
Congrats again, Lori and Brian! I can’t wait for Baby O to get here.
