Lindsay, Jessica and Jacoby: Baby Makes Three {Chicago Newborn Photographer}

I love that somehow I find the very most amazing clients in the most random ways.  Lindsay and Jessica got in touch with me because Lindsay's aunt, one of my mom's best friends {{in Cleveland}} happened to see a post of mine on Facebook that my mom "liked" (yay for my mom being my greatest fan and supporter!).

Ah, babies. Their smell. Their super soft skin. Their teeny tiny hands and feet. There's really nothing like a newborn baby. I love being able to capture the sweet details and the way that they make mom and dad feel.

As I catch up on blogging, I'm amazed looking at the collection of sessions on my "still-to-blog" list, astonished by just how many new babies I've gotten to photograph this summer.

There's nothing better than watching friends become first time parents.  I met this couple when my husband was in business school, and it's funny to think back to the days when we were all unencumbered by nap schedules, babysitters and early wake-up calls, when we could stay out late into the night at The Keg of Evanston with no regard for the responsibilities of life at home (except for, you know, work for me and super expensive graduate school for them).

I love shooting lifestyle newborn sessions. Don't get me wrong - posed newborns in their true squishy naked goodness are heavenly, but to me, the essence of a newborn is the magnetic force of love he draws close.
