  • Welcome to my blog!

    Ever since I was ten years old and was gifted my first Polaroid camera by my parents, I have lived life "through the lens". I was enamored by light and capturing moments in time, even way back then. It was always my intention to be an artist. At first I followed a commercial art education, and then moved towards architecture but it wasn't until my first child was born and I purchased my first professional film camera, a medium format mamiya (boy that makes me sound old) that my vision, the medium and the results married together seamlessly, I had found my heaven! Photography, and in particular the photography of people gives my artistic thoughts and visions an outlet which lets others see the world the same way I do, for that second in time. Photography shines a light into the soul and captures the true spirit, I will never cease to be amazed by and drawn to this most powerful medium. I hope that my journey with the camera conveys the story that I intend, life is precious and these moments are gone in the blink of an eye. Make sure your precious moments live on for generations to come.

Naperville Chicago Maternity Photograher…Soon to be Three

Another cute couple waiting for their permanent house guest to arrive.  March will be here soon and I know they can’t wait.  Judging by the size of mom’s itty bitty tummy I’m going to guess this is going to be a sweet tiny baby.  What a perfectly beautiful mommy to be.

Goodnight moon was one of dad’s favorite books when he was a baby so what a wonderful idea to incorporate it in to their maternity session.

Mom used to live in England and while she was there she purchased this cute onesie and saved it for her future baby.  Soon it will be filled with cuteness!

Aurora Chicago Family Photographer…Best Birthday Present Ever!

OK you know you have a good husband when he takes the time to arrange an entire day of birthday surprises for you!  This beautiful mom was surprised from morning till night.  The day began with a massage at a Naperville Massage Envy.  Followed up with makeup with Loretta at Looks and a photo shoot at our studio.  Boy was she surprised!  But by the time she showed up at our studio she was relaxed from her massage and feeling gorgeous from her makeup session.  So bring on the model!  And a model she was.  Talk about feeling comfortable and channeling her inner Tyra, she was a natural!  Take a look at her gorgeous shots.

And of course I couldn’t leave the boys out.  It was time to see if they had inherited their momma’s modeling skills.  Take a look at their pictures.  I think they are following in mom’s footsteps.  Confident and gorgeous!

Geneva Chicago Maternity Photographer…Pretty Momma

What a beautiful momma to be!  I always love doing maternity sessions because of the excitement and love that the parents to be have for one another and their unborn baby.  This sweet couple was exactly that, EXCITED and full of LOVE!  I remember how excited my husband and I were when we were expecting our first baby.  So much love and anticipation for somebody that you know nothing about yet.  Isn’t it amazing how nature works?  I just can’t wait until this little one arrives.  Newborn pictures are scheduled and this photographer is waiting patiently.  Looking at mom and dad, you know this baby is going to be gorgeous.

Chicago Naperville Newborn Photographer…My Niece

I’m so excited to introduce my great niece Mikayla!  I may be a little bias but I just think she’s the cutest little thing ever!  Those lips are so squishy and full.  Don’t you just want to kiss ‘em?  I loved spending the afternoon with my niece Courtney and seeing her in action as a new mommy.  Mikayla is one lucky girl to have Courtney as a mom.  She better get used to being loved to pieces.  Because boy does Courtney love her little girl.  But look at her, can you blame her?

In honor of all of the snow that Chicago has had this year, we decided to dress little Mikayla up as a snowman.  What a sweet girl for letting us dress her up.  She’ll probably hate us for it later in life.

I had also ordered an adorable cupid outfit for Mikayla’s newborn shoot but it didn’t look like it would be delivered in time.  But luck would have that it was delivered during her shoot.  Courtney and I were so excited to open the package and dress Mikayla up as cupid since she was born a couple of days before Valentine’s Day.  Look at how her lips are shaped like cupid’s bow!  Love it!!

Newborn Photographer...Alicia

It’s hard to see the little bow and arrow because the colors blend but let me tell you it is the cutest little outfit.

See, I told you she has the squishiest lips!
