Baby Led Unposed Portrait Session


Chicago, Illinois Newborn Photographer | Elle Baker Photography | Baby Led Unposed Portrait Session


There is so much beauty in each tiny person that I photograph and sometimes you just need to step back, take a breath, and just let them be.  Magic unfolds every time if you just wait patiently and let them tell their own special story.  This lovely family has been visiting me since their little guy was just a newborn himself.  I am so happy for them and wish them all the happiness in the world with their new little girl.  Congratulations Brown family!

When is the best time to schedule your newborn session?

I always recommend contacting the studio during your second trimester to schedule your session.  I reserve your session based on your due date and clients contact me when the baby is born.  We then set the session date 7-17 days after the baby is born.

Where and when do your sessions take place?

All of my newborn sessions take place at my natural light studio in Homer Glen, Illinois Monday through Friday beginning at 10am.

Should I bring props?

I have all of the ‘props’ necessary for our session.  Blankets, wraps, baskets, bonnets, and headbands are all available to use at the studio.

Are parents and siblings included?

Although the focus of any newborn session is primarily the baby, I do love incorporating parents and siblings into sessions.

How many newborn sessions do you book every month?

I only take 6 newborn clients per month.  Because we don’t know exactly when baby is going to make his/her arrival it is important that I leave enough room in my schedule in case baby makes their appearance early/late.

Are you booking into 2018 yet?

Yes! Believe it or not, I started booking my 2018 milestone babies months ago!  Due to a very hectic schedule with my children, my working hours have been reduced significantly for the remainder of 2017 and 2018 and I will be accepting a limited amount of monthly clients.

How do I book a maternity or newborn session with you?

I would LOVE to have you in the studio for a session and you can contact me by filling out the ‘contact’ tab and I will be in touch soon or you can email me at ellebakerphotography@yahoo.com or give me a ring at 708-822-4687 .
