So I’ve been working on another ✨Baby Bump Sesh✨ this week... and I’m quickly realizing that I’m falling inlove with this type of photography. 🥰 I’ve done a handful of these sessions in the past, but now that I’m a mama myself, I have a whole new connection towards beautiful baby mamas just like this one. 🌿

❤️FAMILY❤️ When we have each other, we have everything. If you have been watching my stories you see that my parents are in town and we’ve been having a blast. I wanted to do a shoot with my kids and parents and @hannahschweissphotography captured us perfectly.  More to come with a blog post about my family. My dress and my moms linked in my profile. ❤️ #ltkfamily #ltkstyletip #ltkstyle #chicagolife #chicagofamily

You can always count on your mama to lift you up 🌟...but seriously, how freaking adorable is this little boy?! 😍 — I’m super excited that my Mama flew in to spend the week with us. Not only will I be celebrating her on Sunday, but I’ll be celebrating my second Mother’s Day... my little girl is (almost) 14 months old has rocked my freaking world. This journey through motherhood has already changed me so much and in the best ways. ❤️ How do you plan to celebrate your mama this weekend??

when the stoffer’s reached out about a family session, i had to pinch myself — not only are these two crazy talented photographers, they are also beautiful, genuine people and i loved documenting this season for them in their gorgeous studio space in chicago.

I’ve had to put a few things on hold during this busy season of mine ...the biggest one being working out every day. If you know me well, you know that I LOVE working out- it is a stress reliever and seriously keeps me sane and centered. I hate that I don’t have the time to dedicate to it right now, but on the flip side of that, thankful I am so busy that I don’t have time for it! I know it is just a season, and I’ll get back to it like normal soon enough. I can do a lot of things in one day, but am learning that I simply cannot do it all, and letting go of certain things has been a good lesson for me. 
If you’re a photographer in your busy season, are there things you have to give up for awhile? (PS- I also never have a clean bedroom- like literally it’s always a disaster.... and I always have laundry to do😜)

This session was so full of spinning, dancing, and giggles! Would you believe this cutie pie’s first words when she saw my camera were very clearly and firmly: “all done with pictures!”?! 😆
We turned the session into playtime, adventure, and butterfly hunting and it wasn’t too long until she forgot about the camera and had a blast with her sweet mom and dad 💞

Sibling relationships are a beautiful and complicated thing and such an important connection to document over time. These two have a strong little friendship that makes me smile every single time I look back on their session. ☺️❤️

Sunday. A moment to exhale before another week begins. Being a mom and a business owner, it’s tough for me to carve out time for myself, to rejuvenate. Lately, a hot bath with epsom salts or a power walk by the water is a real treat and gives me some much needed peace. What’s something you do, to restore peace and joy? 💗 | #brittjensenphotography

As a parent of a new baby, there's really not much that compares with sitting with that baby on your lap and just looking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At all family sessions, I try to step into the shoes of every family member. Each of the parents. The individual kids. During a newborn session, this perspective of a parent looking down at that tiny perfect baby is a favorite of mine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Photography is always a collaboration between the people in the photo and the people holding the camera. If there is an experience you want me to freeze in time during your session, just let me know! I always love experimenting with new ideas! (And usually do during every single session! Because your photos should be as unique as your family!)

Hi! I’m Maggie! Figured it was about time I post a photo of myself. This puckered lip face is probably from me silently judging my husband who is on the other side of the camera. It’s a busy time of the year, I’m usually so busy shooting or editing. Thought I would say hello! See you at your session!

Fall is officially here. I know this because it’s already started with the crazy unpredictable weather that turns on a dime. I was extremely bummed to have to move my vintage truck sessions today to our make up date next week. I literally use three different gps apps that are pretty accurate down to the hour. I had to make the call yesterday at noon with the truck people and it was 80% rain for 100% of the day. Sent the email feeling good that there was NO WAY it would clear. Whelp, the sun was out until 11:30am but gosh darn it I wanted to be out shooting. Flexibility is a must this season so get ready to go with the flow.

Another Sibling Sunday! Isn't amazing to see these tiny humans be so similar and at the same time SO different.  Are all of your kids chill?  Do you have one that is more adventurous?  Do they share the same mannerisms?  We see these personalities come out in photos and love how they play out!

Played on the beach last night -drenched in golden light to the soundtrack of Aladdin.  And yes, it was a dreamy as is sounds.  I love getting to know my families and incorporating some of their favorite things in my sessions.

Dad scrubbed in and caught the baby! A beautiful moment of a powerful, strong woman bringing her baby into the world surrounded by love and dedication. The Matron of the family was close by to support her daughter and grand-baby.  It's as if the baby is lighting up the very room with her presence. Welcome to the World!! Congrats to this happy family!!!⁠

You guys. Maggie Rogers. Do you know her? She is my HAND-DOWN favorite singer right now. I adore her voice, her songs, her dancing, her beats, and her personality. She is coming to Chicago ON MY ANNIVERSARY and I am dragging Kenny to go see her. At the Aragon. He is obliging but definitely not as thrilled as me. But he likes to see me happy. I have decided to bring Lila and maisy too. So they can see a super cool chick do her thing and do it with such confidence and swagger. I can’t wait for them to see their first concert. I think they will really be just watching me the whole time because I will be freaking out dancing without a care in the world. They will probably be mortified. But I know Maisy will dance with me. Right Mais!? 😜😉I love you Maisy. I love you too Lila even though you won’t dance. It’s ok.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
I feel your anguish. And your pain and suffering. To the mama who is struggling…I feel your tiredness during those middle of the night feedings…and the tender look in your eyes as you rock your little one back to sleep. You deal with chafed nipples and stretch marks and maybe a c-section scar. But there is such a deep, indescribable love for your child.

Your haggard appearance, your extreme exhaustion–I’m right there with you. I feel your topsy-turvy emotions. Emotions ranging from awestruck to adoration to fear to gratefulness to sadness. I feel your heart beating out of your chest. How you long to fall asleep but are kept up by the million thoughts zipping through your brain at 3 a.m. The struggle to find time for self care, for working out, for eating right is real. Even the simplest of things, like taking a shower, are a challenge.

I FEEL YOU.

We’ve got this! Motherhood is a journey, not a destination. Like all things, journeys aren’t always perfect. There are detours, roadblocks, delays, and unforeseen circumstances. The important thing is to keep on going! -Annie Smith

YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I feel your anguish. And your pain and suffering. To the mama who is struggling…I feel your tiredness during those middle of the night feedings…and the tender look in your eyes as you rock your little one back to sleep. You deal with chafed nipples and stretch marks and maybe a c-section scar. But there is such a deep, indescribable love for your child. Your haggard appearance, your extreme exhaustion–I’m right there with you. I feel your topsy-turvy emotions. Emotions ranging from awestruck to adoration to fear to gratefulness to sadness. I feel your heart beating out of your chest. How you long to fall asleep but are kept up by the million thoughts zipping through your brain at 3 a.m. The struggle to find time for self care, for working out, for eating right is real. Even the simplest of things, like taking a shower, are a challenge. I FEEL YOU. We’ve got this! Motherhood is a journey, not a destination. Like all things, journeys aren’t always perfect. There are detours, roadblocks, delays, and unforeseen circumstances. The important thing is to keep on going! -Annie Smith

I cannot help but drool over these colors and that light. Luckiest baby boy ❤️ meeting our couple’s babies has to be the greatest honor.

These two had so much love for their little cousin! I love photographing toddlers. I enjoy chasing them around, trying to capture photographs of them on their own terms. Getting older children into the photo with them is another challenge. By the time everyone is posed and ready to smile, the toddler has already taken off. These two were up to the challenge! They chased their cousin around with me all over this little park, posing with him any time he stopped to pause. It was a super fun shoot and it helps that they are all so adorable!
