Let Them Eat Cake! First Birthday Cake Smash | Bartlett, IL Photography

Anatomy of a cake smash:

1. Dip a toe in the icing.

2. Get a closer look.

3. Inspect Carefully.

4. Savor it: YUM!!!

5. Play with your food a little.

6. Be wary of those who get too close. They might try to take the cake away from you!

7. Above all else: Have fun!

Baby K | Newborn Photography | Bartlett, IL

Time sure flies! Baby K's 3 month pictures were here before we knew it!

I can't get enough of her beautiful blueberry eyes!

Recreating a photo like her mom had taken when she was a baby!

Since Baby K is family, my girls were with me. Beth actually begged to help, and she took this photo. I have an assistant-in-training, I think!

Sweet little yawn.
Getting sleepy...

Aaaand, she's out!

Little fingers, little toes.

Big Boy B Part 2 | Bartlett, IL Children's Studio Photography

A few weeks after our outdoor photo shoot with B, he came back to our home studio for some fun backdrop pictures. It was the perfect time to use my new muslin backdrop and buy some suitcase props from Hobby Lobby :)

He has such a timeless look to him, that I edited some as if they were photographs found from long ago!
