Authentic newborn and baby photography

I became a photographer almost a decade ago and decided very early on that I was going to specialize in newborns and babies.  Something called me to them and I was drawn to the world of authentic newborn and baby photography.  I loved ‘posed newborn’ photography but I knew I wanted to go in a slightly different direction with my work.  I wanted to showcase unposed and natural babies and prove that there truly is beauty in simplicity.  I quickly eliminated all props, aside from my gorgeous collection of wraps, blankets, and baskets and focused on what made me happy.  When I stripped down to the bare minimum I found ‘my happy’.  I still shoot this way and have clients from all over the United States come to me for this type of natural and authentic newborn and baby photography.

These images where taken towards the very end of the milestone session.  Crawling and scooting all over the floor she was able to move where she wanted and as fast as she wanted.  I simply shot from overhead and let her ‘do her thing’.

If you are interested in booking a milestone session or authentic newborn and baby session please fill out the contact form and I will be in touch.  It would be so wonderful to have you in the studio and showcase your baby in a natural, organic, and simple way.  I have a full baby wardrobe for all clients to use as well as a fully equipped commercial studio space.  I have a large basket of wooden teethers and lovies for you to choose from and a huge supply of neutral wraps and blankets for baby to cuddle up with.

When to schedule your newborn and baby sessions!

It is never to early to schedule your newborn and baby milestone sessions.  Most of my baby planners schedule at the newborn session or shortly after.  It is best to schedule newborn sessions during your second trimester.  I only allow for 4 newborns a month and book very quickly for those types of sessions.

I offer a baby registry as well for those having a baby shower or sprinkle!  This is a great way to be given gift certificates that can be used towards your baby’s first year, maternity or newborn session!

Where do you travel for sessions?

Currently I am traveling to all of the South suburbs of Chicago including Frankfort, Orland Park, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Burr Ridge, Lisle, Naperville, Homer Glen, New Lenox, and Mokena.  A few times a year I do travel out of state, so please inquire if you are interested!
