Chicago family lifestyle photographer | Summer mornings

“Every moment matters”

Oh how I love family lifestyle photography.  What is better than hearing your kiddos giggling first thing in the morning?  I grabbed my camera this particular morning while we were on vacation to capture these two playing and having fun in bed.  It’s these little moments that I love the most when I look back at my personal photos.  I don’t give any direction and these moments are completely unscripted.  I recommend every parent grab their camera (or phone) and candidly take photos of their children on a weekly basis.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE having my kids home for the summer months and enjoy our free and lax schedule.  Meet Tess and Noah, two out of my three kids.  Noah is almost (tear) 5 years old and Tess is 7.  They are the best of friends and play all day, every day together.  I am sure it will take some adjusting when she returns to school full time in the fall.

Have you ever heard of family lifestyle photography?

To me lifestyle photography is showing your family as you truly are. It’s more than just capturing your family candidly.  It’s about showing emotion and connection in every image and having your life documented in real time.  Whether it be in your home, taking a walk, or at a farmers market we capture your family connecting in a natural and unscripted way.  We can plan a trip to the zoo or arboretum, a picnic and fishing trip, a beach session at the Dunes, or simply cuddling in bed.  I would LOVE to capture your family in a lifestyle type of session so please reach out if you are interested in learning more!  You can view my family work here.

Laurie Baker is a family lifestyle photographer in the Chicagoland area serving Homer Glen, New Lenox, Frankfort, Orland Park, Naperville, Hinsdale, Oswego, and surrounding towns.
