In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session | Lake County IL Newborn Photographer

It is so humbling to be able to meet all these amazing families being a photographer. This family was no exception! They welcomed me into their beautiful home so I could capture their brand new baby boy’s fresh moments. There is nothing like seeing the love between parents and their sweet new bundle. Take a peek at some of the beauty of this family.

Hush Little Baby

Hush little baby, don’t say a word,
Papa’s gonna buy you a mocking bird.

And if that mocking bird won’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat.

And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull.

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Papa’s gonna buy you a horse and cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

Radical Root Organic Farm | Libertyville IL Family Photographer

I love everything local + organic. So when I had the opportunity to photograph the family that runs the Radical Root Organic Farm, I was so happy! Alex and Alison are some of the kindest and nicest people you could meet. You can see the passion for what they do shine through when they talk. I got to take a look at their expansive farm – it is gorgeous! There is a huge white barn and fields for days. I can’t wait to actually try some of the produce and honey in the near future.

Check out their website at http://www.radicalrootfarm.com to check out their farm stand hours of operation. Shop local!

“Peter Rabbit”

Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were—

Flopsy,
Mopsy,
Cotton-tail,
and Peter.
They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree.

“Now, my dears,” said old Mrs. Rabbit one morning, “you may go into the fields or down the lane, but don’t go into Mr. McGregor’s garden: your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor.”

“Now run along, and don’t get into mischief. I am going out.”

Then old Mrs. Rabbit took a basket and her umbrella, and went through the wood to the baker’s. She bought a loaf of brown bread and five currant buns.

Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail, who were good little bunnies, went down the lane to gather blackberries;

But Peter, who was very naughty, ran straight away to Mr. McGregor’s garden, and squeezed under the gate!

First he ate some lettuces and some French beans; and then he ate some radishes;

And then, feeling rather sick, he went to look for some parsley.

But round the end of a cucumber frame, whom should he meet but Mr. McGregor!

Peairs Family | Lake County IL Family Photographer

It was so nice to see this amazing family recently. I photographed them years ago back in the day! I think every kid had grown about a foot taller since I saw them last. We lucked out with some really amazing weather at our session. It was gorgeous! The light was beautiful and yummy as well.

I have a suggestion list of locations of the area that I give to all my clients. I wavered whether or not to put this particular location on my list or not as it hadn’t been my favorite in the past. But the last few sessions I have had here I have fallen majorly in love with it again. Good thing I never deleted it off my list :)

I will probably be catching up on a few blog posts while I am on my way to Colorado on Friday. Be on the look out for some more gorgeous sessions.

Take a look at some of my favorites from my session with this awesome family!

Organic Baby | Vernon Hills IL Newborn Photographer

There are no words really to describe how sweet and adorable this little girl was at our session.

OBSESSED with the black and whites from this session (and the color, too!).

I love love love the organic feel to my sessions. I love neutrals (obviously).

Baby mine, don’t you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part, baby of mine.

Little one, when you play,
Pay no heed what they say.
Let your eyes sparkle and shine,
Never a tear, baby of mine.

If they knew all about you,
They’d end up loving you too.
All those same people who scold you,
What they’d give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
You’re not much, goodness knows.
But, you’re so precious to me,
Sweet as can be, baby of mine.

Bringing Awareness to Pfeiffer Syndrome | Lake County IL family Photographer

Something that I hold near and dear to my heart are children. It breaks my heart when children have to go through trails and pain that most adults have never experienced. I wish I could take it all away for them.

I recently met Mallory. She is a sweet, sweet little girl with so much spirit and love.

After genetic testing, Mallory was diagnosed with type 1 Pfeiffer Syndrome. This means her skull bones fused prematurely before birth. This syndrome also causes fusion of the fingers and toes as well as respiratory issues and delays in development. Only about 1 in 100,000 people are affected by Pfeiffer Syndrome.

So far, Mallory has had surgeries to place a g-tube, a tracheostomy, a posterior cranial distraction and three syndactyly release surgeries (giving her fingers). She is likely to have another surgery in the next year to make room for her brain to grow due to her fused skull bones.

She just happens to have Pfeiffer Syndrome. Which doesn’t define her. I wish everyone knew that. Their illness DOESN’T define them. It is especially hard with children because we are their voice. It is up to us, as adults, their parents, non parents, siblings, strangers, who ever. Do not outcast children who have an illness or issue. They want nothing more than to be a normal kid. And they have nothing but love to give.

PS. Mallory’s Mom is one badass Momma. She has 6 children (5 boys and 1 girl – Mallory). She still manages keep her sanity with all the hustle and bustle of her household, medical appointments, school, etc etc etc. You go girl!

 

Follow her Facebook page for regular updates here at Mallory’s Way!

Enjoy Mallory!
