Bliss | Fine Art Maternity Photography in Chicago

Meet this beautiful couple that came to see me! Mom had booked this session a while back so I was excited to finally meet her! She wanted beautiful, yet simple fine art maternity photos so I knew I wanted to go with simple back lit images, that are stunning and timeless. They also had sweatshirts that had personal meaning to them of Barack and Michelle Obama, so we made sure to take some photos with those, and the elephant that has their precious baby girl’s heartbeat in it. I will also be meeting this little one for her newborn photos and I can’t wait! This couple was so fun, and a genuinely kind couple, and that made it so easy and effortless to work with them, and they are SO happy! There’s nothing like that first pregnancy experience. It’s pure bliss. The newborn session will be as amazing as this one, I already know!

Ade | Chicago IL Best Newborn Photographer

Meet handsome Ade (name is pronounced “ah-day”) who came to see me on his 10th day Earth side. What. a. sweetheart! When his parents gave him to me I could already see how sleepy he was, and as soon as I started posing him, he gave me the biggest smile that you see right here! I had so many frames to choose from, it was if he wanted to make sure I got it 🙂 after that we moved on so smoothly, he was just so perfect! He was the best model and was so good to me. As I was posing him I would talk to him and thank him for being so sweet to me and would call him “snuggle bug” because he would curl right in my arms when I would hold him. At the end of the session we were able to get some shots with Ade’s parents, and his big brother, who is only 16 months older than him. He did a really good job too, I was extremely proud of him. And he was a handsome lil guy too, with his blue eyes and red hair!! Congratulations to this beautiful family!

Ade’s parents brought in most of his props (including the gorgeous leather teddy bear by Coach), but the lace items used in his session are by the only prop knitter I trust, The Knitting Bitty. All items are perfection and the exact size to fit any newborn!

Raina | Woodlawn Newborn Photographer

Meet beautiful little miss Raina, who came to see me on her 11th day of life! Raina, I have to say, was the absolute best newborn baby girl ever, her skin was so flawless, not one peel, not one baby acne bump… I didn’t even have to edit it! She was so sleepy and I jokingly told her parents that if there was a description of what the perfect newborn to pose is, her photo would be right next to it! She was “textbook” newborn! From her relaxed fingers that didn’t clinch, to her perfectly folded legs… I truly could have posed her for hours!! She is such a calm little soul. What a perfect session that was!

Sheldon | Chicago IL Newborn Photographer

How about this little love muffin right here?!! Handsome Sheldon came to see me on his 8th day of life, and man oh man, I could have kept this little guy! He was so squishy and huggable, and was an absolute sleepy head! I photographed his big sister Skylar for her newborn session, AND cake smash session (click on both links to see those) she was like a Gerber baby so I knew Sheldon would be the same, and he didn’t disappoint! From his relaxed fingers to his back rolls, Sheldon was the perfect little model and his gallery shows it. Congratulations to this beautiful family of 4, and I can’t wait to see Sheldon grow into a big kid! 🙂
