Sneak Preview 2-Six Month Old and Family Session

Again happy to share a few images from our session this past weekend!  Loved being able to capture such wonderful moments for you to cherish for years! 

Also love that A's Great Grandmother made her special booties.  There was a whole outfit but she had the booties on since it was cold outside.  What a wonderful way to remember someone who has passed.

Love the sky diver pose!

In front of their first home with their first child....priceless:)

Love Those Cheeks! 6 Months Old-Sneak Preview

I had so much fun with the R family today!  Little A just turned 6 months old and did so well with her session!  We changed her at least 3 times and she gave a little fuss but made sure to do it off camera.  I love her cheeks and those big blue eyes!  I hope her family enjoys the images from their session!  Thank you for letting me share in your precious moments with your first child!

Here are a few images from your session and I'll post a few more tomorrow as well!

Growing up so fast! Toddler's First Steps

I was so happy to see Little E and her brothers again today!  I have photographed her many times since she was just 3 weeks old!  It is so fun to see kids grow up and see all of the changes in them from session to session.  We had to cut this mini session super short due to the cool weather and winds this past weekend but I think we got a few really cute images of her.  The goal was to catch the walking milestone and a few images with her two adoring brothers.

Here are a couple of sneak peeks from our session!

If you want to book a session, contact Erika at Erika@justpeachyphotog.com!  Thanks for looking!

Holiday Mini Sessions and Specials-Chicago, IL Photographer

It is that time of year again!  Time to prepare for the holidays!

As one of my favorite times of year approaches, I find myself thinking of holiday sessions and specials.  I am offering a few mini sessions this year.

What is a mini session?

A mini session is a session that includes only 10-12 proofs and takes about 30 minutes.  It is great for those of you that just want a few photos for holiday cards or as gifts but don't want to invest in a full session.  The proofs will still be posted online in your own private gallery and can be ordered before the holidays.

A mini session also includes a package of prints.  Each session gives you ONE 8x10 print, TWO 5x7 prints, FOUR 4x6 prints and a set of 8 wallets.   You also get 10% off of your holiday cards.

I will be scheduling mini sessions until December 10th.  

How much does a mini session cost?

A mini session is only $125 (a value of over $270)  but there are limited appointments available. 

Another special I am running for the holiday season is for holiday cards!

If you book a full session by Oct. 31st, you get 20% off of holiday cards and 10% off all other prints and products.

If you book a full session by Nov. 15th, you get 15% off of holiday cards and 5% off all other prints and products.

Contact Erika at Erika@justpeachyphotog.com  for more details or to book a session!

Another Sample Collage-Children's Photographer, Chicago, IL

Here is a beautiful black and white sample collage from one of our portrait playdates.  It isn't too late to put together your own!  The fall leaves are the perfect backdrop for a portrait in the park!

Saturday Morning in the Park-September, 18, 2010

Saturday in the park is a good way to describe my last family session.  Fortunately we were just wrapping up before some nasty t-storms made their way through.  I had such a nice time with the B family and loved photographing their energetic, adorable children. 

Here are some sneak previews from the session:

N and M had such a great time hanging out together
N posed like a model
M did not hold back with those beautiful smiles
Thanks again B Family!  I can't wait to show you the rest of your images soon!

Portrait Playdate Sept. 12th, 2010 Sneak Preview 3

Here are a couple more sneak previews from last Sunday's Portrait Playdate in the Park!  Love all of the photos from this session so it is becoming hard to choose the best!

UPDATE:  Keeping these medium size to preserve color.  The last few posts are washed out or the colors are off so I'm working on a solution to that problem.  Please feel free to click on them to see them larger until the problem is solved.

Little A was so excited to be up in the tree!
V was showing me those pearly whites
M was so sweet and I had a great time talking with this adorable 7 year old!
