Magic | Chicago Bronzeville Maternity Photographer

This past week I got the chance to see one of my past clients again, who came for her maternity session for baby #2! I first met them last year when I captured their maternity and newborn session for baby boy Grayson (see photos HERE) and I also did his newborn session (see photos HERE). Grayson is now 10 months old, and will be a big brother in a few short weeks! He was still as adorable as ever, and his mom is incredibly beautiful, so I knew that her photos would be amazing once more! They are expecting a girl this time around, and I will also be taking her newborn photos, and I already know they will be amazing as well!

Naja Lerus Photography is known as a Chicago Bronzeville maternity photographer among other parts of the city, and she is located in the Beverly area of Chicago. She is known internationally for her maternity work and teaches her Art in Europe once a year. How would you like to remember this beautiful time in your life? Allow Naja to create unforgettable memories of how beautiful you were and felt when your baby was growing inside of you!

Grace | Celebrity Newborn Photographer in Chicago IL

Meet adorable Grace, who came to see me in her third week of life! At 21 days old, she was at the cutoff that I usually take newborns, but being born under 5lbs, her mom, NBC Chicago traffic anchor Marley Kayden preferred to wait a little longer before getting her photos done, something that I absolutely understand and also encourage when the babies are born underweight. And in these cases, when the teeny babies come see me around 3 weeks, they are still just as sleepy, and Grace was no exception. She was a rockstar sleeper! I loved her sweet little features, from her little button nose, to her strawberry blond hair.. She was so cute! We finished this amazing session with Grace taking photos with her mom, AND Grandma. Gosh I love those generational photos! Her baby, hiding her baby. What a blessing. A perfect session for little Princess Grace!

Dia | Oak Lawn IL Newborn Photographer

Meet beautiful Dia, that came to see me for her newborn session! Most times, I get the newborn sessions done the very first time, but every now and then, it happens when for a reason or another, my newborn clients have a “false start” and we have to reschedule the session to another day. Out of my 7 year career, this has happened 5 times. Dia was one of of them and the second time I saw her, as with all of my reschedules, the session went SO well. She was as sleepy as she could be and was absolutely perfect. Her mom, who is the owner of Nicole Marie Salon, had the vision for the photo below since she found out that she was having a girl, and this photo ended up being one of my most talked about photo! People are obsessed with how cute Dia looks in it! I have to agree 😉 This was a difficult pose to create and she let me pose her without making a peep! She knew how much her mama wanted it, I say! I am so happy with how the session came together in the end, and Dia’s mom now has the photos she dreamed of so of her beautiful baby girl, and that’s all that counts! Mission accomplished 🙂 Congratulations to this amazing family of 4!

Rioux | Libertyville IL Newborn Photographer

How about this little sweetie?! Beautiful Rioux came to see me on her 8th day of life, her mommy has been my client since she was expecting Rioux’s big sister Lennox (see her session HERE) and I was very excited to meet their newest addition! Rioux was absolutely identical to Lennox and I really felt as though I was posing the same baby twice! Rioux (pronounced “Roo”) was a lot sleepier though; this baby girl slept oh so soundly throughout the entire session and I was done in lightning time! She was a doll to pose and had such relaxed fingers! She is the baby out of 4 kids, and now their family is complete! Congratulations to this new family of 6! I’m looking forward to seeing Rioux grow!
