St. Charles Newborn Photography | gorgeous baby girl

Winter months means lots of babies coming through the studio.  This gorgeous little girl was so content, as long as she was wrapped and nice and warm.  My South Elgin, Illinois photography studio is set to a balmy 85 degrees during a newborn session, so they’re nice and sleepy and content.  I often catch sleep deprived parents drifting off during the session as well!  Ha!

Chicago cake smash | fun to be one

I love pulling together cake smash themed sessions!  Take me out to the ball game is one of my favorites, as I’m a crazy Cubs fan!  Who doesn’t love baseball… and CAKE?  Who isn’t a Chicago baseball fan (whether you’re a Sox or Cubs fan).

Elgin Illinois newborn photography | organic newborn

I just love all of the natural organic wood tones, neutrals and hint of grey from this session.  One of my favorite parts of a session is coordinating my set ups, ensuring that each image coordinates with the colors and tones of the entire session so if parents choose to hang their prints in a grouping they look good together.  I’m completely obsessed with organic, natural looking images with the focus being on the baby.   If you think my style fits the look you love as well, please email me to schedule your newborn session.

Elgin baby photographer | studio session

In the bitter cold, I’m thankful I have a studio where I can continue to capture these sweet babies.  Her expressions were so FUN!  My South Elgin studio is the perfect spot to capture those milestones!

My goal for 2018 is to get caught up on posting sessions from last year.  Here’s to a great start!
