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!

Victor | Chicago Sports Newborn Photographer

I present to you Victor, the cutest little future athlete that came to see me last week who was only 10 days old for his session. I first met Victor’s parents when I did their first newborn’s pictures, big sister Violet (see her pictures HERE) and I absolutely could not wait to meet their newest addition to the family. And Victor did not disappoint! He was a phenomenal baby, absolute putty in my hands! He peacefully slept the entire 3 hour session, he was a true little sleepy head and let me pose him with such ease, it was incredible! His mommy had been preparing for his session for months and wanted Chicago sports referenced in his session, so she ordered him a custom knit Chicago Cubs outfit by The Knitting Bitty, and I also used the Chicago Bulls lace outfit and basketball I had, and it all came together so perfectly! We finished the session with the family and sibling shot, and big sister Violet cooperated so well for her age! I was very proud of her! Congratulations to this beautiful family of 4!

Surprise | Blue Island Maternity Photographer

Surprise! This is what I titled this post, because this is what this session was! I was contacted by this gorgeous mom’s husband, who told me they were expecting their third baby, and after 2 boys, they were finally having their little girl, and his wife always wanted to get maternity photos done but never had the chance to, so we wanted to do something special for her and surprise her with this gift! It was the cutest thing ever. They drove up and she only found out once she was here! And I must say I was absolutely floored by her beauty, and could not believe that not only was she expecting baby #3, but she was also 37 weeks pregnant!! She rocked this session from beginning to end, and it was evident that she had done modeling before for sure! She made my job easy 🙂

Nathan Jr. | Top Newborn Photographer in Chicago IL

Meet 10 day old Nathan Jr who came to see me last week. I can’t even tell how much I am honored and humbled to be considered a top newborn photographer in Chicago IL, you see, Nathan’s parents aren’t even from the city, they live in Kentucky! That is a 5 hour drive! I met them when they came for their maternity session (you can see it HERE) and they booked me right on the spot for the newborn session, all knowing that they would have to drive back with their little one. And that, they did! Baby Nathan weighed in a lot bigger than anyone expected, at 9.6 pounds, and he was as cute and juicy and can be, oh my goodness! And he slept, and ate, and slept some more.. I truly cold have kept him! he was such a love bug and his gallery is absolutely amazing. We finished with him posed on his dad’s back, showing proudly their last name. Senior and Junior in the picture, and I loved it, such a tender moment between father and son..

How will your baby remember you, looking back on photos of when he or she was born? How will you remember those newborn details? This is why it is so important to capture these moments. They are so fleeting. Book your newborn session with Naja today and freeze these important moments in time!
