Welcome to the world, lil’ Elizabeth!

Hi all! Well, as a follow-up to the two adorable newborn boys featured in the blog a few days ago, today I have a beautiful little baby girl session for you to peruse. Elizabeth is the first child of Erin and Larry, and she was almost four weeks old when I took these pictures, so she was starting to really wiggle and discover the ins and outs of her world (mostly her arms and legs!) when I met her. Elizabeth is lucky enough to have awesome parents as well as a big extended family filled with tons of aunts, uncles, and cousins–she’s going to have a blast as she grows up!

Boy, oh boy!

Hi all! Today I have a 2-for-1 deal for you: two sets of newborn baby boy pics in one post! The first little guy is Jack, and he was photographed when he was just a week old. He’s the firstborn of Beth and Tom, who are both teachers, and he’s adorable, calm, and sweet–but little does he know that in 17 years, his mom and dad are going to be sparring about whether he attends the University of Illinois (mom’s choice) or the University of Missouri (dad’s choice)!

The second handsome little guy (his first pic is in the striped grey-and-taupe hat) is Lucas, who is the son of Melis and Troy and the little brother of beautiful 2-year-old Julia. I was able to photograph and meet Lucas when he was just four days old, and he was super easygoing and pretty darn alert for much of our time together. Then, once he fell asleep, he squirmed until he was sleeping on his side–in the same position that his big sister likes to sleep. Isn’t that so sweet?

Enjoy the pics of these adorable guys! Email me at maggiepaigephoto@gmail.com if you’d like to set up a session of your own!



Have You Met Greta?

Hey all! Happy, happy, happy summer! This teacher gal is ready to usher in the sunshine and warmth (not to mention a couple of months during which I have no essays to grade). Thanks for your patience in my updating this blog, and let me introduce you to sweet Greta! She’s six months old in these pics from the spring, and she lives in a really gorgeous historic home in Oak Park with her mom, Virginia, and dad, Eric. Fun fact: in some of the photos, Greta is wearing a pink dress with a white collar–and that was the same dress her mom Virginia wore at that age. Cool, right?

As you can see, Greta has the most beautiful skin, an adorable grin, and just gorgeous eyes–and she was happy, sweet, and totally willing to change locales and outfits during our shoot. Sweet Greta, indeed!

Summer is great time to make family memories and put them in digital file form; please let me know if I can help do that for you and your kids!
