Joshua | Chicago Professional Athlete Newborn Photographer

Meet handsome Joshua Jr, who came to see me on his 11’th day Earth side! I have known his mother since the beginning of my career as a newborn photographer, because her oldest boys, who are now kindergartners, were my very first set of twins! So when I found out that she was expecting again and wanted to hire me once more I was so honored, because I would also get to see Aston and Lawson again! This time though was all about Joshua Jr! Joshua’s father is WR Joshua Bellamy from the Chicago Bears, and my client had told me beforehand that she loved the color orange, and also wanted Football to be incorporated in the session, so I enlisted the very talented The Knitting Bitty to make Joshua Jr the cutest custom lace mohair football set, it was just too cute! Joshua wasn’t much of a sleeper, but he was an extremely chill baby so he let me pose him awake! This was a fun session. Huge thank you to his parents for choosing my studio to capture Joshua in all of his newness!
