A month after Aryan's first birthday celebration, the Bhat family met with me on a beautiful Sunday for a family portrait session. If you're a parent, I don't have to tell you how quickly kids grow and change.  Aryan wasn't quite walking on his birthday, but he was all go go go when I photographed his family session. My heart melts every time I see his baby browns and toothy smile.

Perhaps an even better photo would have been of me getting Aryan to smile.  I have no shame and I even busted out, "I'm a Little Teapot," which Aryan loved.  (If you've seen Miss Adelaide sing in "Guys and Dolls," then you can imagine how I sounded.)  Too bad the little dog didn't find my antics as amusing.  She loved to look away right when I got Aryan all smiley.  (I think she was embarrassed for me.)  :)

Throw in an adorable puppy, two wonderful parents and Chicago as the backdrop and you have a memorable and fun photo session.

(I also would like to thank my boyfriend, Johnny, for being a trooper and a car/stroller watcher. Without him, the shoot wouldn't have gone so smoothly.)

First off, I want to give a couple shout outs to the lovely vendors I didn't mention last time.  For Lei Lei's lovely jewelry, check out Heatherly Designs.  For the cute little birdies on top of Lei Lei and Steven's cake, check out Minori Design

So now onto the "Trash the Dress" or "Rock the Dress" session Lei Lei and Steven did after their wedding.  The entire session lasted less than an hour, but boy did these two work it.  Funny side story:  I asked Lei Lei what her favorite color is so we could find a door she'd love.  In little less than 2 minutes after my question, we found it.  Moral of the story: Ask and you shall receive.  :)

This shoot is very urban, yet you could easily have one of these sessions in a park or nature preserve.  Totally up to you.

Enjoy!



Because we all can't get enough of Lei Lei and Steven, here's a slideshow of more images from their wedding.

Also, feel free to check out my wonderful second photographer, Steve Koo, to see the images he captured.
