Woodland Beauties {Christine Kay, Chicago Children’s Photographer}

 

This year we decided to do our annual photo shoots with the kids in Canada, on our summer vacation. When we got here and saw all the incredible wildflowers, I knew I had to incorporate them into the girls’ session somehow. Yesterday afternoon, the girls and I went for a walk and they got to choose their favorite flowers for their own flower crowns. I wasn’t even sure I could make one (first-timer!) but you know what?! They are not that hard! I’m really happy with how they turned out and I adore the whimsy they brought to the photoshoot! There’s just something magical about a flower crown . . . I don’t think my girls have ever felt so pretty. And their images show it!

We found a little patch of wilderness perfection for our shoot just across the street from the cottage where we are staying. It was pretty much the perfect afternoon yesterday . . . and I’m so thankful for my beautiful, sweet girls. (And yes, I’ve been editing non-stop since our shoot . . .haha!)

Sarah and Jimmy, Expecting {Christine Kay, Chicago Maternity Photographer}

 

 

You might remember this sweet couple from their gorgeous wedding two summers ago. They did their first look on a rooftop overlooking the city skyline in the early hours of morning . . . I’ll never forget it. It was gorgeous! (Click here to view.) 

Two years later, as a gift, Jimmy arranged a maternity session for Sarah on the morning of their anniversary. We got up super early and met up downtown in time to utilize the gorgeous soft light of sunrise and the results were stunning . . . and what a great way to get the most popular city sites *almost* all to ourselves! Loved every minute of this beautiful session. Take a look for yourself.

Baby “B” {Christine Kay, Chicago Newborn Photographer}

 

I can’t tell you how excited I am when brides and grooms of mine call me back and ask me to photograph their newborn babies! You might remember this couple (click here) with the really eclectic and fun wedding venue in my home city, Chicago. This year not only did they buy their first home, but 2 weeks ago, they welcomed their first child into this world. And he is such a cheeky little sweetie. Enjoy the images & congratulations, Nick and Laura! He is beautiful.
