As a gift to my clients every year, I host a Mother's Day event and I welcome mothers and their children to come to my Homer Glen studio for an open house and updated photo. This annual event is very special to me and every year has absolutely wonderful. I walk away with beautiful friendships and even more love for the clients I work with. After an amazing response from fellow clients, this year I will be hosting a Father's Day Event for all of those that have had full sessions with me in the last two years. Sessions will take place at an outdoor location, one hour before sunset. I welcome you to come for a photo of you and your child(ren) and enjoy this special moment with your babies. A few images will be taken for you to chose from and a digital file will be gifted to you. I hope to see you at this lovely event! xx ~L

Images will be very natural with minimal posing. I will be capturing honest moments between you and your babe. I encourage neutral clothing to allow for simplicity in the images. Upon reserving your time slot, I will send you my ‘what to wear’ guide. A studio wardrobe is available to use during the session for babies 0-12 months and I also have a few EleStory dresses/skirts for young girls.

Through this beautiful journey, I have found my heart skips a beat when I capture raw, authentic, and unposed maternity, newborn, and family photography. Take a look around, and if you feel a connection it would be so lovely to hear from you.
I create the kind of images I want of my family. Images that create feeling and emotion when you look through them. I strive to capture moments that would have otherwise been forgotten. Read some reviews here to see what other's are saying.

His love for her was absolutely amazing. She giggled and held him so tightly throughout our session...
One of my favorite sessions to date, this sweet family has so much love for one another...
Sometimes I witness a moment that is impossible to recreate. A moment that quickly unfolds and then it’s over.
