Capturing the Moment

Admittedly, I may be a little biased. They are my boys, after all. But are these not some of the most precious pictures you have ever seen! :)
The photographer is Dana from LifePix Photography. And she is spectacular! She met us one evening in Adams Park in Wheaton. If you know the park, you know that it is full of beautiful trees and flowers and has the best smell of spring!! As soon as she met the boys, she started talking with them and getting to know them. She made them immediately feel comfortable which made all the difference in the photos she was able to get.
Picture time can always be a little stressful for us moms. We are trying to get the kiddos to look at the camera, smile appropraitely, be positioned just perfect. But Dana just put that all at ease. "I am just capturing the moment, " she said. "You'll be surprised at how many good shots we'll get." And I am.
Her pictures are beautiful, her prices are very affordable, and she works with your schedule to find the best time to get the best pictures. I think I changed the session date like 3 times due to schedule and weather and she worked with me everytime. Her approach is to integrate contemporary photojournalism with classic portrait styling. She uses natural light and familiar surroundings to capture your family at their best. The result is pictures that will take your breath away and that you will cherish for years and years.

Dana is a fellow DupageMama- mom to three beautiful girls, the youngest just 5months old, who lives in Warrenville.
She is laid back, great with kids, and very very talented! Hurry and book your spring session before she is all booked up! Scroll down through some of my favorite shots of my boys and there just might be a reward at the end....

Beautiful, huh? Dana has very generously offered to giveaway one free photo session (an hour long) at the location of your choice along with one free 8x10 print. Visit her site and look around. Then come back and comment here telling us a little about your favorite photo subjects (ie: your kids or your pets or etc...) Comments will close next Tuesday the 12th at midnight. The winner will be drawn at random and announced here. Don't forget to get your extra entries (blog it, Twitter, Facebook, subscribe) to this one. Trust me, you want to win this.

This giveaway is also listed with Mom Most Traveled's Giveaway Carnival-LOTS of great prizes there too! For obvious reasons, this giveaway is open for Chicagoland mamas only. Thanks!!

Oh, well, I'm always a sucker for cute baby photos! Her work is really great. I love the family portraits.

Your boys are adorable in these pics. :)

Great pics, beautiful kids!

Wow! What a talented photographer! I wish I had had newborn pix taken professionally... but since I didn't, winning this photo session would be awesome!

I love to take pix of my kids, but to be honest, I'd love for someone to take a picture of ME (with my hubby & kids of course), who can coach me to not have a double chin!

we haven't had a family photo since before my son was born...i feel a little guilty about that. we just haven't been able to afford a good photographer. i would also like some photos of my kids--for the same reason we haven't had a formal session in a year. i hope my kids will forgive me some day!

Of course my favorite photo subject are my 2 adorable kids-age 3 years and 2 months. And since I have a new kiddo and the economy prevented us from getting professional newborn or pregnancy pics, I would love this prize! Thanks again Farrah for setting it up!

My favorite photo subject is my little man (16 months). I'm also pregnant and found recently I have very few pictures of myself with a bun in the oven. Her work is really beautiful and captured your boys perfectly. My email is
