It seems like it's been ages since I've sat down to write a quality blog post. Life has become crazier and busier than I ever could have planned. Most days I feel like I need a clone to give all the kids, husband, job and house the attention it deserves.

Since Oliver arrived in our life, our hearts (and schedules) have never been more full! It's fun and we love it, but I've been placing a large emphasis on spending more time one on one with my kids. If we've spoken in person, you know this is a really important part of life to me. That each and everyone of the kids feels like they receive quality time, on their own, with each parent.

What I also realized is that sometimes my two older girls just want time together - just those two. So we spent a "girls date" at theh park and happened to catch a few amazing candid moments along the way.

This night "off" was the energy I needed to get moving on my Fall plan. And I am SO excited for what's in store. First of all, I'm offering three amazing outdoor options for families this year. For the first time ever I'm including beach sessions up north in Wilmette. I'm also offering a fun Lifestyle Mini session - this is the kind of session I plan to do with my family and I encourage all of you with youngster or strong willed children to consider it! And if you want the full hour, luxe offering I always offer I have that for you as well. 

Now what I am SO excited about is the Christmas theme shoots for this year. Last year I loved my set-up and the amazing turnout for the Holiday Mini Sessions. This year, I'm raising the bar even higher and offering exclusive SANTA mini sessions! Do NOT waste your time in line at the mall this year for your Santa pictures. Rather, come visit me and maybe a few other North Pole visitors, for a fun, exclusive and highly personal experience for your kids (or pets)!!

I hope to see you this fall!
