The Silva Family

We have so much fun photographing the Silva family, and love that we have been able to take photos of their family as it has grown. Mom, Pamela Figueroa Silva, is a calligrapher, and helped us create the logos for Chicago Baby and our wedding company, Studio Soo.

I met Pam and her husband last year around Easter. We had just taken over our photo studio and she was one of our first sessions. We instantly fell in love with her family’s bright, kind dynamic and their story.

Jeff worked as a pastor and missionary, and met Pam while he was in her hometown in Chile. The rest is history! Today, they have three beautiful children, 5-year-old Lisa, 3-year-old Danny and newborn Emma.

Our Easter session in 2017 took place before Pam was pregnant with Emma, and Lisa and Danny were so active that it was difficult to get photos of them sitting still. Even though it can be challenging because they are so active, we love photographing siblings together. Their interactions create natural, genuine photos that are always surprising and fun. This session was no exception, and one of Lisa’s photo has been on our website’s main page ever since.

Lisa and Danny are similar ages to our own two boys, and our kids were fast friends. Our families have built a beautiful friendship since that first session, and we loved having the chance to photograph their family again for Emma’s newborn session.

We hope you love the photos from these two sessions as much as we do!
