Little Benjamin Augustus was born yesterday morning at Northwestern Hospital in downtown Chicago. Today, I got to meet the little guy, who is just barely a day old.

Benjamin is lucky to have two amazing parents–Brent and Meg–who also happen to be dear friends of ours. As a momma myself, there’s something so special about watching friends become parents themselves.

So, I was especially excited to be one of the first people to meet–and photography–Benjamin, who is as cute as can be and was born with a head full of black hair.

Here are some sweet shots of this new little family.

Is it weird that this sweet little baby ear is what is giving me the most baby fever?!

This past weekend, I met up with an adorable family to shoot photos with them and their newest edition: 6-week-old Zayden.

Shooting newborn photos can always be a bit of a challenge, as they have a mind of their own (don’t we know it), and Mom and Dad are usually sleep-deprived and anxious. But Zayden’s parents, Vanessa and Marcquel, were as kind and calm as can be, as was his big sis, Akaylah. Plus, Grandma was on the sidelines, ready with a bottle and a bounce whenever we needed her!

I’m so happy to have worked with this little fam, and being around sweet Zayden has deepened my own baby fever. Here are some photos from our time together.

All the babies!

LOOK AT THAT FACE!

I really, really love this shot.

Hi, Dad!

Listen, Zayden: you’re family is ridiculously good-looking. So, you’ve gotta work on your camera face. Okay, buddy? 😉

I’ve been photographing Emmy since she was only a 1 year old–back when she was still an only child! So, it was fun to shoot photos with this family whom I’ve been working with for over 10 years.

This year, we decided to do something a little different, and we opted for a glam session in Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood, which was quite the departure from our usual suburban garden shoots.

I love how these photos turned out–and I love this family! Here are some sneak peeks from our shoot:
