Senior Photos ~ Katherine

My gorgeous niece graduates high school this Spring & when I was in town last September we planned out a fun senior session for her. She’s super artsy and creative so I knew we had to make her locations very special. We selected a downtown urban feel for her first look and the Papago Mountains at sunset for her second look. She has the most radiant smile and I loved capturing her senior photos for her. Love you, Miss K. XOXO-

Congratulations, Beautiful! Looking forward to seeing what the future holds for you ~ Love, Aunt C

“S” Family Portraits {Christine Kay, Child and Family Photographer}

I am so in love with this family holiday session! This Phoenix family is so dear to me. I have known them for years and in 2009, I got to be their wedding photographer as they got married on New Years Eve! It was such a blast. (Highly recommend a New Years Eve wedding, I have to say!) Now they have this new addition to their family – Little Man Liam – and he could not be any cuter. Just *wait* til you see his cheesy-nose-scrunchy-eyes-closed smile. Gah!! He’s just the best. And Kelly and Ricky aren’t too hard on the camera either. Sheesh, people! Share some of the supermodel genes with the rest of us!

Enjoy the images!

“L” Family Shoot


Time to catch up on blogging! I’m WAYYY behind. Let’s start off tonight with this sweet, sweet family from my Phoenix sessions in September. I adore these littles!! (And their parents too!) It just doesn’t get any cuter than these little loves. They may have run me in circles to get the shots, but it was totally worth it!! I hope I make it to Phoenix next Fall to photograph you all again! XOXO-

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.
