Caleb | Best Newborn Photographer in Chicago IL

As one of the best newborn photographer in Chicago IL, I strive to create the best experience for my clients who trust me with their most prized possession; their newborn. This is handsome Caleb, who came to see me on his 8th day of life. Caleb was perfect! I wanted to keep him, not even lying! He was long and lanky and curled up so perfectly. He was so sleepy, he wanted to wake up at the end, but just couldn’t keep his eyes open, it as the cutest thing LOL! His mom wanted to include her books on Martin Luther King and different african-american memorabilia that she had, and I of course loved it. I will also get to see Mr Caleb for a milestone session and I can’t wait to see him again. What a handsome, baby boy he is!

Capturing your baby’s first pictures is so important as a parent. The time goes by so fast and they change so quick! How do you want to remember your newborn? What newborn details do you want to immortalize? Email Naja and book your session today!

Golden | Unique Themed Maternity Photography in Chicago IL

Unique themed maternity photography in Chicago IL, golden dreams and perfect visions for your maternity shoot, that is what Naja specializes in! And what an honor it was to meet and photograph this beautiful mama-to-be; she found my work on INSTAGRAM and she loved my work so much, that she made the trip all the way from Kentucky to come see me! What an honor!! They drove over 4 hours to come see me, and they will be coming back once their little boy is born, for the newborn session! What had caught mom’s eye was the Gold theme maternity shoots that I offer, it is the exact unique themed maternity photography that she was looking for. So we started with the regular setups, then finished with having my makeup artist come in, to paint her in glitter and gold, head to toe. The shoot was amazing, and they were the absolute cutest couple ever! Their last name is “Overall” so they had the cutest idea to have some pictures done in.. You guessed it, overalls! 🙂 I can’t wait to meet their little guy in a few weeks, and I know it will be as amazing as the maternity session was…

Happy birthday Madelyn! Chicago Beverly Cake Smash Baby Photographer

Happy birthday Madelyn! This year has flown by since the last time I saw this little missy for her newborn session (see that session HERE) I got to see her for her 6 month session, and I absolutely couldn’t wait to see her again for her One year birthday shoot! Madelyn was a bit camera shy so I had to be fast in taking her pictures 🙂 She ended up giving me some slight smirks and her mom did agree, that in the end, her personality was completely captured and I am so happy she loves her baby’s pictures!

The big ONE is such an important milestone in the eyes of the parents. Don’t forget to capture your baby’s, it’s a memory that your baby will love to look back on! To inquire, you can contact Naja via the contact tab or at

Bold | Chicago Gresham Pregnancy Photographer

I named this blog post “Bold” because that is the feeling that this mama gave me. Bold. Fierce. She had amazing eye contact that could pierce you. When she first inquired about a maternity session, she told me that the look/feeling she was wanting was that if regality, she wanted to be a queen for the day. And that she was! She rocked that crown like no other and I love how her session turned out!

Personalizing my sessions to my clients’ vision is what Naja loves to do! Are you expecting? Do you have a specific look or feel that you want? Naja will make it happen! Having maternity pictures is something that you will never regret! Be beautiful, be bold, be you!

RJ | Chicago Goldcoast Newborn Photographer

This is cutie pie RJ, who came to the studio at 19 days old. I first met his mommy when I did her maternity session, so I was very thrilled that she contacted me again to do her son’s newborn session! He was SO cute, looking just like his mama… RJ’s dad was big basketball athlete in college, and his uncle plays in the NBA, so basketball is in his blood therefore it was an absolute must to include the sport in his session! He did such a good job, and we finished with parent/family shots, and I just love how they turned out! What a handsome bunch 🙂 Congratulations to this new family of three!

If you are expecting or newly just had your baby and are wanting to immortalize your journey into parenthood, don’t hesitate to contact Naja! It would be her honor to capture these fleeting moments for you and your family.
