Katie 32 weeks | Lincoln Park Maternity Photographer

Beautiful, beautiful Katie. I have been documenting her pregnancy each month, from when she first found out she was expecting, so I get to see and be amazed at how gorgeous her bump is growing every time; I love seeing how rounder and rounder it gets! Little Miss___ will be here before we know it! 🙂


Waiting for her | Chicago Maternity Photographer

Meet Virginie. Virginie and I have been friends since high-school. A looong time ago 😉

So it was an honor for me to be able to photograph her and her husband, for this very special maternity session. Virginie and Jerome, thank you for allowing me to capture this amazing time in your lives, and I cant wait to see beautiful Miss J when she arrives in a few months!  Naja~ xoxo

Sweet Lyla – 11 days new | Chicago Newborn Photography

Meet Lyla. Sweet, sweet girl.. LOVE her name too! She wasn’t a big fan of being posed the first day, so I rescheduled her to come back a few days later, and she did so good!! She is the apple of her parents eye, and I see why! It was such a pleasure to photograph her… And mom and dad were big Wisconsin Badgers fans, when I heard that, I *absolutely* had to have that show in Lyla’s session!! GO BADGERS 😉

Waiting for her… | Chicago Maternity Photographer

It is when I have gorgeous mama-to-be’s like this in the studio that make me wish I was pregnant again.. The joy of carrying a life is so amazing, sigh.. I guess I can always vicariously live thru my clients! 😉

**Reminder: If you book your newborn session with Naja Lerus Photography while still expecting, you will receive a complimentary mini-maternity session! Please email Naja at info@najalerusphotography.com for more details**

Aidan | Chicago Illinois Newborn Photographer

Sweet, sweet Aidan. Oh how he melted my heart. As soon as my clients walked thru the door with him, and I saw him, I knew it was going to be a great session. Born 3 weeks early, he was still a tiny lil’ bud, and oh-so sleepy. He made my job very easy! What a pleasure it was to photograph him. He was a dream…
