Thinking Warm Thoughts Part I | Chicago Family and Children's Photographer

I miss everything about Chicago, except January and February.
— Gary Cole (actor)

Procrastination is rarely a good thing, except when it gives you a chance to contemplate summer during the single digit days of January. Last June a friend and I created a three part stylized shoot at the lake. Our models, not surprisingly, were thrilled to eat ice cream at 6:30 AM. For my friend and I, half of our fun was brainstorming the concept from location, to clothing, to props (including of course the pink ice cream). 

Stylized shoots are a great way to involve the you in every aspect of the design so that we can showcase the personality your children. Who knows your child better than you, after all?!?

I have so much fun with these sessions so expect to see more of these from Ten Little Bluebirds in 2017. Please feel free to email me ( with your own ideas and don't forget to "like" me on Facebook as I will soon be doing model calls.
