Kinzie's newborn session - Aurora, IL photographer

Do you see how cute this baby is? Man, I love my job!

For Kinzie's newborn session, I went to her house with basically an entire studio. But since we were in her home, we were able to do pictures in the nursery and get family pictures in their living room. I love being able to incorporate more lifestyle images into my sessions and especially when big siblings are involved, it's nice that they can just go back to playing once they're done with their photos. 

So we got family pictures in the family room, lifestyle pictures in the nursery, and then all the posed pictures on the beanbag, basket and flower bucket were just done in the living room. Lucky for me they have beautiful hardwood floors that make a good backdrop!

I was so excited to have a newborn girl to work with after all the boys I've had recently. I love using soft pinks and purples along with some neutral colors.

Welcome to the world, Kinzie! You are so lucky to have such a beautiful family and awesome big brothers that love you :)

Jenny's Easter Mini Session - Aurora Baby Photographer

I loved having this little cutie in the studio! She's almost 4 months old now and was a little hesitant at first, but luckily I have an adorable 2 year old for an assistant and she helped to make Jenny happy for her pictures. I still have more openings for Easter mini sessions on April 2nd in my home studio in Aurora!

Aurora newborn photographer - logan's newborn session

This baby boy was so great! He went right to sleep and let us take a ton of pictures. I love that we were able to get a studio look for his individual photos; but because we were at their house, we were able to do some more lifestyle photography in the bedroom as well. Merry Christmas, Logan!

Aurora newborn photographer - mini newborn session

This sweet little girl is number four! We just needed to get a few pictures of her by herself while she's still a newborn and she made it pretty easy. Gotta love those cheeks!

Aurora Family Photographer - Family/Baby Session

Look at these beauties! Little Evie just turned 6 months old, so of course we had to do a session :)

Mom and sister Annabelle joined us for a few outdoor pictures first and then we came back to the studio to get Evie's photos by herself and some Christmas pictures, too. I can't wait until it's her birthday and we have pretty flowers outside to use for those photos!

Aurora Family Photographer - Lifestyle family session in Joliet

When family visits from out of state, of course we have to do pictures of their new baby! Sweet Adeline is 2 1/2 months old and SO full of joy. I really enjoyed doing a lifestyle session at the house, I love getting all those emotions in the photo. And cousin Fiora happened to be visiting too, so of course Grandma had to get a few pictures of herself with both her grandbabies. I can't wait until their next visit! 

Grace's Newborn Session

She's here! I was so excited to hear that she was a girl, because that meant I got to use all my pink and purple stuff :)

Miss Grace was such a perfect model for her newborn pictures and Sister Ella is so in love with her! I was able to get some shots of Ella kissing her new love and we got family pictures, too. Newborn portraits are my absolute favorite thing to do and having a baby like Grace to photograph makes it even better :)

Juniper's First Birthday

I love this little girl! I've taken so many pictures of her and it's so much fun every time. She was full of smiles here for her first birthday pictures; she's always such a joy to be around :)

Bradley Newborn

Hooooly moley this boy is adorable! He was such a great little baby model and slept through pretty much the entire session. He let us get family pictures, a few with his awesome big brother Theo, and then plenty of Bradley alone. This is why I love doing newborn pictures!

Kraabel Family June 2016

Watch these kids grow! I can't believe how fast they are. Ryan is such a good big brother and loved taking family pictures. And look at those smiles on AJ! Six months has gone by fast...

Juniper 9 months

What a cutie! Little June had a great time at the forest preserve for her nine month photos. She has such an infectious smile and the sweetest giggle :)

Wehrle Family

What a beautiful family! This little boy is SO lucky to have such a great brother and sister that are already so in love with him. I could not have asked for a better family to photograph. Brother and sister were so cooperative and loved holding baby Trevor and talking to him. And for a newborn, he was a fantastic model - he slept the whole time!

Daly Kids Easter & Birthday

Busy, busy! The twins' first birthday and Easter! Would you look at these outfits! SO adorable. Dean and Logan were full of smiles as always, and the girls were all over the place! Easter eggs and birthday balloons are a lot of fun when you're one. We are all looking forward to doing a session outside soon!

Juniper 6 months

What a beauty! I am LOVING taking this sweet chick's photos every 3 months. What a treasure to watch her grow! She definitely gave us some good pouty faces during this session, but we were still able to get some super cute images.
