Over the past two months, I have gotten to take some gorgeous photos of four new babies. And each time, my heart just melted from the cuteness. This is a job that never gets old - there is just something about a brand new baby. Soft skin, just newly formed, flaking from all of the exposure to air after all that time in utero. New teeny tiny finger nails that are just too soft to even trim. Flailing arms afraid of their ability to move in the big bad world. Sweet soft sleepy breathing through itty bitty noses and gummy gassy smiles. I just love all of it. I'm so grateful to each and every family who welcomes me into their home to photograph their precious little bundle of joy. Here are a handful of my favorite images from these recent newborn photography and lifestyle newborn photography sessions in Chicago - being a newborn photographer in the Chicago north shore suburbs is such an honor.
