Ella | Six Month Session | Chicago Family Photographers | Heather Hackney Photography

Six months ago I met this wonderful family for the first time to capture their newborn baby girl in their home. The hum of Holiday music in the background, fresh coffee brewing, wonderful conversation and lots of newborn snuggles.  Their home was filled with such warmth, and such love for each other and their Sweet Ella.  I felt instantly connected and I cannot express enough how much I personally enjoyed capturing their morning as they connected with their brand new baby.  

And now, that beautiful newborn is six months old.  When Amanda contacted me to come back and photograph them again I couldn't wait so see them and that beautiful baby.  Six months is my favorite age to photograph.   When they are just learning to sit, are full of smiles and think everything is funny (if only there was a hidden camera on us during these first images - Daddy singing the most hilarious song, placing stuffed musical toys on our heads and making goofy noises to get those genuine smiles filled with such happiness).

Once again, I enjoyed spending a wonderful morning with this gorgeous family and feel so honored to have the opportunity to capture them.  And this six month session has become one of my favorites to date.

Happy six months Sweet Ella.
