South Coast Botanic Garden Portraits | Palos Verdes, CA Portrait Photographer | Silas

Silas is (almost) TWO!!

I LOVE getting to visit with my little pal Silas and have had the wonderful opportunity to work with him and his parents, Anna and Matt, for all of Silas’ milestone sessions since he was just a few months old!

Silas is so much fun to work with –  he is the most adorable little bundle of energy with the CUTEST smile and the brightest blue eyes!! We had a blast wandering around and climbing “big rocks” at the South Coast Botanical Gardens in Palos Verdes.

I can’t wait to work with you again next time and watch you become the sweetest big brother, Silas!!

Polliwog Park Family Session | Manhattan Beach, CA Photographer | Serena, Bill & Malbec

I had so much fun this morning working with Serena & Bill and their adorable little pup, Malbec on their holiday photos!

We spent the morning wandering around Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach. Malbec loved chasing the geese and ESPECIALLY loved getting a treat after every photo! Enjoy!

Waterfall Glen Family Portraits | Lemont Photographer | The Ridder Family

I absolutely love this family (and not just because they’re my own siblings, niece and nephew!)!

The Ridders are such a fun group – always full of laughs and they have the two sweetest littles you could ever meet! Summer is a tiny ball of energy who loves to get dressed up and enjoyed keeping an eye out for Ariel in the creek, and Maverick is the sweetest, most cuddly baby boy with the BEST little wavy haired mohawk and lots of stories to coo about!

It is truly such a blessing to have been able to watch my sister fall in love, get married and now have this amazing little family of her own. Being able to hang out with them in a different setting to photograph their growth and capture their memories during these milestones is such a joy!

Alyssa and Billy – I love you guys and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you, Summer and Maverick ❤

Anna | Fall Portrait Session | Palos Heights, IL | Brooke Tobin Photography

I have been anxiously waiting to make this post!

But first: how INSANELY GORGEOUS is Anna?!

I met Anna back in school at Trinity Christian College where I was majoring in Photography and she was double majoring in Music and Philosophy. When she told me that she recently started a modeling career, I just knew we HAD to collaborate! We had so much fun wandering about these insanely beautiful wild flower patches at Turtlehead Lake. The weather was amazing – cool and breezy – PERFECT for this fall portrait session. This vanilla chai latte loving girl is so good at what she does and is so beautiful inside and out. Enjoy!

Kaitlyn & Brittany | Best Friends | Chicago Portrait Session | Brooke Tobin Photography

I have been SO anxious to share all these photos!

This best friends session is easily one of my new favorites. Filled with TONS of beautiful smiles and lots and lots of giggles, Kaitlyn and Brittany know what friendship is all about. I loved watching these two beauties goof around and make each other laugh so uncontrollably! Through good times and bad – together or at a distance – these two have always got each other’s back. Enjoy the photos!
