Gorgeous | Chicago Fine Art Maternity Photographer

How about this beautiful mama that came to see me last week?!! She was absolutely stunning , she favored the supermodel Naomi Campbell and had the cutest little bump ever! I had a vision for an image that I wanted to create in my mind of a gorgeous mama wearing a gold “dress”, and wow, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! I love when the perfect mama comes in and lets me try stuff 🙂 so now I will be offering this look, but on a limited basis. This mama embodied exactly why I love being a Chicago fine art maternity photographer. She brought everything to life, just perfect. Soon she will be the proud mommy of a precious baby boy, and I couldn’t be more happier for her.

Nia and Nala | Chicago Twins Newborn Photographer

Nia and Nala are my latest set of twins that I photographed, they are fraternal twins as you can see, and they came to see me at 18 days of age. Although they were born on time, Nala was very small so we chose to wait a little until she gained a little more weight so she could join in on the fun! They absolutely loved being snuggled together, and immediately felt comfort as soon as they touched and felt each other near, it was the cutest thing ever! They are the babies of their family and are spoiled with so much love already.. What a blessing! Congratulations to this new family!

Summer | Chicago Outdoor Maternity Photographer

I am primarily a studio photographer, where all of my sessions are done inside; but every now and then I have requests for outdoor maternity sessions, and I must admit it’s fun to step out of my comfort zone and do something different every now and then! I first met my beautiful client a year and a half ago, when I did her maternity and newborn session (*see maternity session HERE), and I was so happy to hear that she was expecting again, and it was another GIRL! This is her 4th baby, can you imagine?!! She looks absolutely fabulous. With her last baby we did studio, and for this one she wanted a totally different look so she chose to do an outdoor maternity session, and I love how it came out!

Stunning | Chicago Fine Art Maternity Photographer

When I tell you I have the most beautiful clients, I really do! And can you believe, this mama is expecting her fourth child?! She looks amazing. My client told me that she wanted fine art maternity with silhouettes and black and whites, and I think it all came out so perfectly! Her oldest son wasn’t able to make it to the session but we did take advantage of the fact that her two girls were there. Soon they will be a family of 6, and I can’t wait to meet and photograph her sweet baby girl in a couple of weeks!

Zia | Best Newborn Photographer in Chicago IL

Meet Zia, who absolutely melted my heart. Zia came to see me on her 9th day of life, and was as sleepy as they came!! She was my second newborn session of the day and she made my job so easy. She was squishy, and so soft with a head full of dark curly hair, she was the perfect newborn and I wanted to keep her LOL. This session will stand out as one of my most challenging though; not because Zia was a difficult baby or anything (because she was a dream!!) but her parents challenged my creativity by bringing in their own memorabilia that they wanted to be included in their session and I loved it! This is what makes each session so different! Dad used to be a College football player and is an ex-marine so he brought his old jersey and marine hat, and mom is a doctor so she brought in her graduating cap and gown, and I love how it all turned out! This was a very good session. Congratulations to this beautiful family of 3!
