Chicago Family Photographer | Boys & their Mama!

Posted by Melissa of LibbyLou Images on June 17th 2016

I got to spend my morning with these two little gentlemen! Colin & Lucas were adorably cute and full of energy! We spent our time playing the “DON’T smile at me!” game. I think it went pretty well. I totally won! What is it with all kiddos and the opposite game? It works EVERY TIME! My favorite photos were the mommy and son pics! Moms never get enough time in front of the camera! Jessica and her boys were so sweet together. It was a beautiful morning!

Miguel & Sarah got hitched May 14th, 2016

From start to finish, the day was amazing! Sarah stunned in her dress from Crystal Bride and Miguel looked dapper in his suit! The groomsmen all sported amusing socks while the bridesmaids rocked their black dresses! The bouquets from Irina’s Flowers were so beautiful! No detail was left unturned! My favorite part of “wedding day” is always the morning of! The anticipation is so fun! Watching Sarah and her girls prepare for the day was a hoot! I think Sarah teared up more times than I can remember. That much joy and happiness makes my heart explode! When I met up with the guys at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, it was all smiles! Miguel looked ready as ever to see his bride. After the “I Do’s!”, we were off to take pics in downtown Libertyville where Miguel grew up. The bridal party was amazing! There was no shortage of laughs! Later, the reception kicked off at Manzo’s in Des Plaines! What a PARTY! This group knows how to get down!  🙂  It was a day to remember! Congrats again you two!!  🙂

Sweet Sleeper

Photographed by Melissa of LibbyLou Images on June 10th, 2016

The best part of my job is watching and documenting families grow! Now this little guy is a fighter! After just a few days home, he found himself back in the hospital with two viruses. That is every parent’s worst nightmare. The good news is that he was released after just a few days and is doing great! He was able to join in on the sibling fun in the Hartman house! I’ve had the privilege of photographing all three of these little cuties from birth on! I have to say Barrett wins the best little poser award! Now as for the sleepy newborn thing…Barrett ROCKED IT! I think he was awake for a total of 15 minutes his entire session. This makes for a very happy photographer!! There’s nothing I enjoy more than a good sleeper! I see big things in store for little Barrett! New exciting adventures are right around the corner for this sweet family!

Deer Park Newborn Photographer | Little Sister

POSTED BY MELISSA FROM LIBBYLOU IMAGES ON MAY 23RD, 2016

There’s nothing more fun than photographing all three of your best friend’s newborns. Each of these three newborn sessions were so special to me! First there was Sweet Emily almost 5 years ago. I look back at those photos and think of how much I have grown as a photographer. Next came Nate, who blessed me with the honorary title of “Godmother”. He is such a cute, silly, little boy! Finally, there’s Little Miss Leah! She’s going to be a heart breaker just like her sister!

Now their Mommy & I have know each other since we were 18….and…well let’s just say we’re a bit older now.  🙂

All three of these babies (yes, I still consider them all to be babies) will forever hold a place in my heart!  I am honored to be called “Auntie”, and I am blessed to get to watch them grow older with my own children. I look forward to years of making memories together!
