While the heat and humidity had set in, it was still an absolutely beautiful day for family photos at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool in Chicago. The lily pool is always a stunning location for photos because it has so many different nooks. It was such a pleasure to take Bernadette and Neal’s family photos there.
It was so amazing to get the chance to take their family portraits because they were one of the first families I ever had the chance to photograph. I had just gotten my new DSLR and was beginning to play with taking photos in manual mode. While I had always loved photography it was a new adventure to share with people how I wanted them to pose and interact. I’m so happy we were able to venture down to the Caldwell Lily pool to take some fresh family photos.
Enjoy their shoot!
I met Natalia, Misha, and their sweet girl on a beautiful Chicago, September day before the heat wave hit! We decided to meet on the bridge in Lincoln Park by the honey comb for family photos. There’s a beautiful view of the Chicago skyline from there!
I so enjoyed being able to capture their beautiful family after having the chance the capture their beautiful wedding! It is such an honor to get to capture photos for families that they can cherish for a lifetime.
Their sweet little one’s smile lights up the camera. Make sure to take a look at her giggles as her parents play with her!
Happy Birthday to my amazing loving mom. It is such a joy to see you with your grandbabes having so much fun with them. I have been fortunate to have a mom who loves and cherishes all the momments.

Birthday’s are always special. This little one’s first birthday was filled with friends and people who love her.
It was so much fun to be with her to capture some of the special moments of her day! She has sass and style and it was so much fun to watch her enjoy her first bite of cake, play with friends, and enjoy her fam!
There was so much for the kids to play with from the inflatable ball pit to the bean bag toss. The kids all enjoyed being able to be free and play.
