Genievie Maternity Session | Northside Chicago Maternity Photography

Chicago Maternity Photography by Vlad of Yofi Photography

Our maternity photography session with Genievie and Brian! They are so sweet. So, they drove out all the way from the far suburbs of Chicago because Genievie found us on Instagram and loved our work. What an honor! It was so sweet being able to capture her birth announcement photos.

Also, they have such a cute puppy! I love dogs, so whenever a client asks about whether they could bring their pup to a maternity or family session, or if they are welcome to be a part of their in-home newborn session, I ALWAYS give a resounding “YES!” Rachel and I have a pup of our own. So, we completely understand wanting to include them in a session that captures the beauty of the whole family. Our furry and loving companions are every but a part of our families. And, I truly believe including them in sessions brings out the best in our families.

It is so exciting to be able to photograph this season of Genievie and Brian’s lives, and I know they are going to be a wonderful mom and dad. Their little one is going to be very, very loved. 🙂 Congrats, Genievie and Brian!!

Downtown Chicago Family Photos with Vlad of Yofi Photography

Fariel and her sweet, beautiful family! 🙂 They are absolutely amazing. Families like this are what make me totally in love with downtown Chicago family sessions. The architecture serves as such an amazing backdrop to their beauty! +

You are the meaning of strength
at its highest peak.
You have courage
when the rest of us are weak.
You inspire me
to live for the now.
And to never give up
Because you don’t know how.
I’ve learned from you
why family comes first.
it’s because when you need them,
they’re there when you hurt.
No matter the pain
It all hurts the same.
And family you can count on
to always remain.
When the road gets rocky
you seem to take each bump
and walk over them smoothly
hump after hump.
You have no idea
about the effect you’ve made
and with the lessons I’ve learned
my life’s made a change.
Not just a change
But also a growth.
From an immature child
to a young woman with hope.

My Equator… The Center of My World – poem by Jackie Karp

I loved the way the Ali family dressed! Credit totally goes to Fariel, who is amazing at picking out her family’s attire. She chose combinations of layers that had her family coordinating so, so well! 🙂 We are honored to have had the opportunity to capture the Ali Family’s photos, and cannot to see their family again! 🙂

She spins and she sways to whatever song plays

Without a care in the world
And I’m sitting here wearing the weight of the world on my shoulders
It’s been a long day and there’s still work to do
She’s pulling at me saying “Dad I need you!
There’s a ball at the castle and I’ve been invited
and I need to practice my dancin’
Oh please, Daddy, please!”

So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone

She says he’s a nice guy and I’d be impressed
And she wants to know if I approve of the dress
She says, “Dad, the prom is just one week away
And I need to practice my dancin’
Oh please, Daddy, please!”

But she came home today with a ring on her hand
Just glowing and telling us all they had planned
She says, “Dad, the wedding’s still six months away but I need to practice my dancin’
Oh please, Daddy, please!”

So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone

Whitney Maternity Session | Glenview Chicago Maternity Photography

Glenview Chicago Maternity Photography by Vlad and Rachel of Yofi Photography

Our maternity session with this mom and dad! These two boys! This family! We ADORE them. They were so incredibly fun to spend the evening with, to capture, and to get to know. Whitney and Tyler are both amazing parents and amazing people. 🙂 And Whitney is pregnant with twins! How exciting! 🙂 These two boys will be the best big brothers to their sisters! 🙂

Whitney-Maternity-Preview-1_WEB+

When the voices of children are heard on the green,
And laughing is heard on the hill,
My heart is at rest within my breast,
And everything else is still.

‘Then come home, my children, the sun is gone down,
And the dews of night arise;
Come, come leave off play, and let us away
Till the morning appears in the skies.’

‘No, no, let us play, for it is yet day,
And we cannot go to sleep;
Besides, in the sky the little birds fly,
And the hills are all cover’d with sheep.’

‘Well, well, go and play till the light fades away,
And then go home to bed.’
The little ones leapèd, and shoutèd, and laugh’d
And all the hills echoèd.

Kathleen Maternity Session | Chicago Maternity Photography

Chicago Maternity Photography by Vlad and Rachel of Yofi Photography

This maternity photography session with Kathleen and her family! Rachel and I had the chance to photograph Kathleen, her husband, and her son, for an afternoon with our Signature Maternity Session. So, what is included in the Signature Maternity Session, you ask? The Signature Maternity Session comes with two maternity dress rentals, floral crowns, and the opportunity to have the session at two different locations.

The Beauty of Maternity Gowns

First of all,  the natural brush near Lake Michigan is beautiful. Because of its variety, the tree-lined backdrop is great for capturing Kathleen in a lovely pink gown. Then, after our drive to the South Pond at Lincoln Park near the conservatory, we started part two of our session. Man, what an amazing sunset! Also, we were blessed with being able to capture Kathleen’s son! His laughter and sweet joy is contagious! He is going to be one amazing big brother to his twin sisters. Yes, Kathleen is pregnant with twin girls!! During this part of the session, Kathleen wore a gorgeous white maternity dress layered with lace . We love the ethereal look of maternity dresses!

Rachel and I love taking an afternoon to capture the beauty of a family. Most of all, when that family is waiting on the arrival of additions to their family. Thank you, Kathleen, for the chance to capture that sweet expectation. 🙂
