Newborn photographer in Chicago, IL

For almost a decade, I have been studying the art of newborn photography.  I became a newborn photographer in Chicago, IL after my first daughter was born and I fell in love with simple sessions focused on finding what makes each newborn so unique.  I listen carefully to the parents talk about their newborn’s features and make sure to capture these details.

It would be an honor to photograph your baby’s newborn session.  I would love to hear from you!

Fine art newborn photos

I have heard people describe my newborn photography work as natural, authentic, and raw.  I wait for movement throughout the session and try to capture raw moments.  My favorite moments include stretching, yawns, sneezes, and if we are lucky smiles.

In the images above, the baby was waking up from a long nap.  We were nearing the end of the session and she started to unfurl a little.  Although some parents get nervous that their little ones are waking up, I get a tad giddy with excitement.  To me, the magic unfolds as they show movement and a story begins.

I begin each session with an album design in mind.  If I were flipping an albums pages, would it tell a story?  I photograph my baby sessions, maternity galleries, and family photos with the same album idea.

Maternity and newborn sessions

The best time to schedule your maternity session is in your second trimester or the beginning of your third trimester.  I recommend scheduling newborn sessions during your second trimester.  I schedule six newborns per month which allows my schedule some flexibility should your baby arrive early or late.  We will schedule your session 7-17 days after your baby has been born at a convenient time that works with your schedule.
