Braxton's newborn session - Aurora, IL newborn photographer

Oh. My. Goodness. Braxton was seriously the best baby I've ever photographed. I don't think he cried once during our 2 hour studio session. He did poop on my blanket, but that's to be expected and I won't hold it against him :)

His mom signed up for the model session I advertised and brought him in when he was 10 days old. I wanted a new baby to use as advertising for something I'm really excited about - the midwife I had when my daughter was born is moving to home births and opening a new office in downtown Naperville. I asked her if she'd be interested in hanging some adorable baby pictures in her new office and she said yes! And then I ended up with this totally adorable perfect baby and I couldn't be happier.

I was excited to use this new wood floor backdrop and the cute little bucket I put him in :) And since we couldn't really use fancy headbands on this boy, we got a good excuse to bust out the bow ties! And of course I can't help myself but do some basic newborn poses on a simple neutral blanket - it's kinda my thing ;)

Congratulations, T family! You're new bundle of joy couldn't be sweeter!

Everett's newborn session - Aurora Newborn Photographer

What a sweet boy! Everett was amazing for our in-home session. At only 9 days new, he was already a professional model :) I loved being able to do these pictures in their home so we could get a new family picture in front of their new house as well as all the cute posed beanbag images I love.

Everett's Fresh 48 - Aurora Newborn Photographer

Our big family has been waiting for this boy and HE'S HERE! And man, oh man, is he cute! He looks so much like his big sister. I loved doing a Fresh 48 session for my cousin at the hospital where she delivered. I love the chance to capture those precious moments and now we'll be able to look back at the first couple days. I am so looking forward to photographing their in-home session next week!
