There are not many things I love more than taking pictures of babies!  Some people think that is nuts but I have found an approach that seems to limit the number of baby meltdowns per session and makes it fun for everyone!

I met up with the Beck Family this sunny and snowy Saturday at their home in Old Irving Park.  We started out in their living room where Owen just crawled around and played with his toys.  From there, we spent a little time playing with Mom and Dad and catching some really big smiles.  Owen is for sure a very cute happy baby and like any other one year old, he loves to put things in his mouth 😉

At the end of the session, the family decided to bundle up and capture a few photographs in the snow.  The last shot is probably my favorite from the session.  We tried to get little Owen to hold Mom and Dad’s hand to walk but this little boy decided that he would walk on his own time.  That will be a fun memory 20 years from now!

What a fun session!  So great to meet you all!
