Thank you Laurie, from the bottom of my heart for these photos. It means the world to me that every year I receive an updated image of me and my baby. I will cherish this collection of motherhood images for the rest of my life. God bless you for sharing your gift. xoxo ~ Sarah | Oak Brook
Images will be very natural with minimal posing. I will be capturing honest moments between you and your babe. I encourage neutral clothing to allow for simplicity in the images. Upon reserving your time slot, I will send you my ‘what to wear’ guide. A studio wardrobe is available to use during the session for babies 0-12 months and I also have a few EleStory dresses/skirts for women size small and medium.
This special event is an open house, but I would love to know if you are planning on coming so that I can be sure to have plenty of refreshments available for everyone. Kindly RSVP by clicking the 'rsvp' button below so I know to expect you and I will give you an approximate arrival time. I will be allowing for 20 scheduled sessions that morning and spots are filled based on the order in which they were received.
I welcome ALL mamas and babies to visit the studio for this special event, however the complimentary photo is gifted to those who have had a full session with me in the last few years or has scheduled a 2018-19 session with me.

Through this beautiful journey, I have found my heart skips a beat when I capture raw, authentic, and unposed maternity, newborn, and family photography. Take a look around, and if you feel a connection it would be so lovely to hear from you.
I create the kind of images I want of my family. Images that create feeling and emotion when you look through them. I strive to capture moments that would have otherwise been forgotten. Read some reviews here to see what other's are saying.

I am oftentimes told by new moms that they don’t feel like themselves and would prefer to not be included in the session, but I can assure you
This family drove four hours, one snowy February weekend to celebrate this baby’s special milestone.
Sometimes I witness a moment that is impossible to recreate. A moment that quickly unfolds and then it’s over.
