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!

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!
