Holiday Photos With Brooke
My favorite season has arrived… the season of holiday cards/family photos! I absolutely LOVE our annual family holiday photos because it is so fun to look back and see how the family and kids have grown. For the past three years I have had the privilege of Brooke, from Glimpses by Brooke, taking our pictures. I first found her website while searching for a photographer for some first birthday pictures of Greyson. We did one session with her and I was hooked! One word… lighting!! All the photos above were done by Brooke and each one has the most amazing lighting! The pictures, to me, are magical. The first time we worked together we did a few shots in the park and then a smash cake session back at our house and they ALL turned out so beautiful! Greyson’s birthday is in August and as soon as I received those pics I called her to setup a holiday session.
Brooke is one of the top Chicagoland area photographers who specializes in family, newborn and maternity. She is AMAZING to work with and every year helps me decide on location and styling tips. She has kiddos of her own so she is great at working with Grey and Linc for the photos. She, somehow, always gets the perfect shot and is very patient. Even when I start to lose it (which is usually 7 min into the session😆 ) she is calm and VERY helpful with Grey. This year in particular Greyson was NOT feeling family photo day. He was grumpy and running everywhere. I left the session thinking…’we probably don’t have a single good picture of the four of us’. Ummm… LOOK AT THESE! She got so many amazing options with all four of us looking like normal happy humans. What a WIN! Best way to reach her, view more photos and pricing can all be found on her website, which I will link below. Be sure to mention me or this blog post and you will receive 10% off! TRUST me when I tell you that you will not only loves the photos but you will love the whole experience of working with Brooke. As a mom with two littles I always show up full of anxiety but she immediately calms the situation by being so great with the kids and full of amazing advice. Every year I try to do two looks, in one hour which leaves me with beautiful memories for a lifetime =)
