Mount Prospect, IL Newborn Photographers – Baby Charlie

Mount Prospect, IL Newborn Photographers

Newborn sessions with older siblings are tearing at my heart strings lately. Probably because my own two are getting older.. a lot older.

I have had so many great big brothers and sisters in the studio lately. This big sister was so excited to be part of the session and help out which was a huge relief because the main focus of the session was the siblings images.

If you live in or around the Mount Prospect and you are looking for newborn photographers… Give me a call and we can chat about your own newborn session!

Now booking through Fall 2018.




If that picture below doesn’t say PROUD BIG SISTER then I don’t know what does! We were able to get some images of Mom and both of her kiddos, which I am hoping will be a great keepsake and addition to part of this families growing story.


Ok. Ok. Big sisters have their moments too 🙂 One of my favorite images above ^^^

Baby Charlie woke up and even gave us some giggles and laughs. He didn’t make it into the studio until after he was a month old. I think Baby Charlie just proved that even if you miss the perfect newborn time frame of 7-10 days, you can still get some amazing family images. Don’t skip a session! Just jump in and document your family at any moment you can.



The most important part… What did this family do with their newborn portraits? Click here for the post on their heirlooms and keepsakes


Mount Prospect Newborn Photographers – Artwork & Keepsakes

Mount Prospect Newborn Photographers

The best part of the custom portrait process is meeting with your photographers and viewing your newborn photos. It can be overwhelming and fun (yes, at the same time) deciding how you will preserve and view them. When we are unable to have the actual wall we can use some mock home images, seen below. We went through so many ideas and here is the final design choice in our new Heritage Wood Print.

Live in Mount Prospect and looking for newborn photographers? Give me a call to discuss your new arrival!


I need to correct myself. The best part is the delivery of your art products. The final result of your hard work. Getting outfits together, getting everyone ready AND getting yourself ready, making sure everyone naps and is fed. Getting everyone there and then imagining and deciding on how you will enjoy and love them. All the work comes down to the delivery day. It is kind of like Christmas Morning or your birthday. On this delivery day, Big Sister was very excited and was suggesting that the small wood print be hung just at her eye level so she could look at it all the time.


Do not just tell your children, show them. Show them they are important, show them family is important. Print and display. Even if it is just one professional product.

Booking now through September 2018.

Des Plaines Studio – Newborn and Family Portrait Session

Often a families first outing is their newborn session. This family traveled to my portrait studio in Des Plaines, IL for their first family portrait. The stuffed bear mom brought with was a perfect match.


Babies first year tip: Bring the stuffed friend back to your sessions over the first year to document babies growth. Some wonderful first year keepsakes can be made!

The first family portrait that will hang in their home… I am so honored to be able to capture this for the new family of three.

Mom and Dad so in love and so thrilled to be starting their family.

Together we designed an entire wall that will grow with them as their family grows. With room for many more images, this image from their maternity session and one from their newborn session will join a wedding image (which I also created for them :)) and be the start of their family wall.

I am so ecstatic to watch this wall grow and am honored to be the photographer to document all of these important stages and connections. Stay tuned for more of their wall and baby O’s first year!

9 Month Milestone in Studio – Des Plaines Photographer

9 months and still full of smiles! From holding her head up then sitting to standing, it is so fun to see her come back everything three moths to show off another milestone. The first year is full of such growth. You blink and they have a new trick or new expression. I am so happy Mom and Dad chose me to capture her first year. One more milestone session to go!

6 Month Baby Girl – Des Plaines Studio Portrait

Time for Baby K’s 6 month portrait! Every time she brings along her pink baby blanket and her two stuffed elephants friends. And every time I photograph her with them to show her growth. Pretty soon she will be standing up next to the elephant! It will happen way to quickly.


Just like last session, you can see she brought all of her smiles too. She is always happy and thinks her parents are the funniest. Can’t wait to have her back in three months and see what milestone she has checked off by then!

He was worth the wait – Des Plaines Newborn Photographer

I can’t think of any better way to celebrate your one week birthday. Mom and Dad sat back and watched their cute baby boy in awe as he slept peacefully and happily threw his newborn photo session.


Mom and Dad wanted to make sure to document the time, energy and love they put in waiting for this cutie to make their family three.


He is the start of something wonderful. Their world will never be the same as they watch it through the eyes of their baby.

Welcome to the world Baby E and welcome to the start of the most amazing part of your journey Mom and & Dad.
