Zoe | Newborn Photographer Chicago

Families like this one make me so proud to be a newborn photographer in Chicago. This is beautiful Zoe, who came to see me on her 10th day of life. I first met Zoe’s parents when I photographed their first daughter Mira, almost 6 years ago! Then I was hired to photograph their new son Jaxson (see photos HERE 2 years ago, and I was elated to find out that they were expecting little Zoe this Spring!! I love when I get to pose siblings as newborns, because it always feels as if I am posing the same baby 2 or 3 times, it’s really fun! Mira, Jax and Zoe all look just like their beautiful mama, she definitely has strong genes! Zoe was absolutely adorable and slept thru the entire session and only woke up for the sibling shots, and her eye contact was incredible being so young! Her parents are die hard Chicago Cubs fans, (she was named after Ben Zobrist, the 2016 MVP) so it was must to have a custom girls Cubs outfit made by The Knitting Bitty for her shoot, and dad is a firefighter so that had to be included as well! This was a perfect day for a perfect session with the most perfect family, and I am absolutely honored that they chose me for all 3 children. I get to see families go from just the parents to 2 to 3 (sometimes 4) kids, it is so incredible. I absolutely have the best job in the world. Thank you to all my clients who trust me with their memories.

Bella and Brooklyn | Hazel Crest Newborn Photographer

I would like to introduce Bella and her twin sister Brooklyn, who came to see me! These beautiful girls are fraternal twins, and the best is that they were born on two different days in 2 different months, how neat! I usually have trouble distinguishing my twin babies, but it was easy with them, Brooklyn is darker than Bella. Chocolate and vanilla 🙂 The girls were so adorable and absolutely loved being snuggled next to each other, the closer the better actually as it soothed them immediately to feel the other one next to them, it was the absolute sweetest ever. Congratulations to this beautiful family, that grew by 4 feet!

Fierce | Chicago Fine Art Nude Maternity Photographer

This gorgeous mom to be that came to see me last week is exactly the reason I chose to become a Chicago fine art nude maternity photographer. To me, a woman’s pregnant body is so beautiful. Oh how our bodies are amazing, we create life, and our bodies deserve to be celebrated. This mom had a specific vision for her session, she was very comfortable in her own skin and wanted fully nude maternity photos. Each session I create is different based on my clients’ desires and I was happy that she trusted me with her vision! She was absolutely breathtaking, and so easy to pose! She looked like a model so I knew that her photos would be flawless.  And can you believe, she is 37 weeks pregnant here! Wow. So gorgeous. Soon she will be welcoming a beautiful baby girl! Congratulations to her and her family and I know she will be as beautiful as her momma!

Harley | Newborn Photographer in Chicago

Say hello to miss Harley, who was one month old when she came to see me! My usual cutoff date to take newborns is usually 3 weeks, but her mom had explained to me that Harley was born at 35 weeks, so based on her gestational age at birth, thus being born early, the fit was perfect! Harley was pure perfection and still acted like a very new newborn, so sleepy and peaceful and didn’t make a single peep the whole session, even giving me THE biggest smiles I have ever seen in a session! She made me melt! I am so happy that her mom, while looking for a newborn photographer in Chicago, found me and followed my work! I want to extend a huge thank you to Harley’s mom for choosing my studio, and for sharing her sweet babe with me, it was an absolute successful session!

Capturing your babies first photos is so important, and you want your photos to be as beautiful as your baby is. If you are looking for a newborn photographer in Chicago, look no further, Naja is the photographer for you! Don’t hesitate to inquire!
