"I love to watch people interact and I love to capture relationships with photography."
If you're my friend on facebook, you've probably seen my newest album. We finally got professional pictures of B taken ... at 19 months! We had newborn shots taken when B was about a week & a half old & really didn't like the experience... we then tried 3 month shots & really hated that experience. That's when Mike bought me a Canon Rebel XS & told me to get to work, because we weren't putting B through this anymore. What changed his mind?
Perhaps you remember when I introduced my dear friend, Abby, who is starting a photography business? Well, she recently relocated from Phoenix, where she started her business & she now lives in Chicago! Yay for us, right? So we ventured out a couple weeks ago & she got to work. B was comfortable with her, of course, but even if he hadn't known her, I know it would've gone just as well.
Abby was fantastic with him, chasing him around & just letting him do his own thing, while snapping shots. (In the past, each photographer just sat there waiting for B to do something picture worthy & then tried to set up the shot. Ummm.... not happening people - you've gotta be ready or you'll never get that picture worthy pose!)
These pictures definitely capture the little boy that is my B.
Take a minute & check out Abby's website & her blog, where she writes about everything from photography to wine to family. Are you in the Chicago area & you want to book her for your next photo shoot? Mention you read about her on Big City! Baby & she'll give you a discounted rate of $50.00 a session. This includes 5 fully retouched photos AND full rights to print them or use them however they want (this is super important to me!). Not in Chicago, but still pretty local (Illinois, Iowa, Omaha area)? Shoot her an email & chat with her about traveling - firstname.lastname@example.org
I can't wait to have these photos hanging in my house!
Aren't they fantastic?
