Update your ‘framers’ with a Sesh from Little Cacti in the City

It’s been a long hiatus, but after having our third child, Ethan, I’m back to it! First up to discuss, a fantastic photographer on the scene that you definitely need to take notice.

Our client and great friend, Daisy Knox, is a fantastic natural light photographer.  We just had a great photo session with her a few weeks ago and she just ‘gets it’.  Daisy has 4 kids of her own and understands what it takes to get incredible family photos in a short period of time.  Kids can expire quickly during photoshoots, and Daisy totally knows how to get kids to cooperate and look amazing in front of the camera quickly.  I heard her repeatedly say ‘I got the shot’ after maybe 3 clicks of her camera.  I was completely skeptical and thought, ‘how can our family of 5.5 all look great that fast’?!?  Well she did, over and over again, so just see for yourself in her blog post below.  I am in absolutely love with these photos and I’m looking forward to updating my ‘framers’ around my house with these stunners.  Thank you Little Cacti in the City and Daisy Knox.

Families are all after her services so grab a spot today and get 15% off your full sesh (not applicable for a mini-session).

DEAL ALERT: Fall/Winter Photo Shoot W/ COUPON!

If you haven’t scheduled your child’s annual photo shoot now is the time to do it!  The fall landscape is beautiful, but even consider a winter shoot with the crisp with snow!  I love to do our family photo shoot this time of year and bring a Holiday scarf or hat and use the pictures for our Christmas photo card.

My featured photographer is nothing short of amazing and boy does she deliver the goods!  Tammy Leathem of Leathem Photography is excellent.  She captures so much life in a still photo where you will cherish the memories forever.  Nothing beats professional photos and they make great gifts for the grandparents!

For Raising Kids in Chicago readers only she is offering a 20% Off her portrait session (regular price $350) (blog name must be mentioned).  For $280 you get an on location (with in city limits) photo shoot for 1-2 hours with limitless frames and an uncopyrighted DVD of ALL the pictures so you can share, post and have them printed in any photo shop you like (Tammy will recommend the ones that print the best quality).  I’ve included sample photos of her work, so don’t delay and make your appointment before the Holiday rush!   Contact: 312.952.6974 and visit her website:

Think about your local park, beach, play ground or even in your own home where your kids are most comfortable.

Another thing I love about Tammy is that she gives direction.  We have had several family photo shoots where the photog just stands there and says ‘go’.  Striking a natural pose isn’t really our forte, but with Tammy you don’t have to worry!  She will give you ideas, natural poses and so much more in order to ‘get the shots’ and have fun.

So let your kids (and your) inner model out and capture your most precious memories!

Enjoy Chicago,
