Genevieve's newborn sessions - Aurora, IL photographer

This little girl is probably the most awake baby I've ever photographed. Look at those eyes!

I loved the chance to meet Miss Genevieve and her family at their home in Oak Park. Doing in-home sessions makes it so much easier for parents to relax and get back into comfy clothes once the family poses are done. And I love that I get to do a little bit of everything since I basically bring a whole studio.

Welcome to the world, Genevieve!

Grace's newborn sessions - Aurora, IL photographer

I feel so lucky to have such photogenic family members! My husband's cousin and his wife were blessed with this beautiful baby Grace and I was honored to get to photograph her. I had a ton of fun doing something a little different by going for a lifestyle look in this session. I love the simplicity and clean look.

Congratulations on your beautiful girl, Matt and Audrey! <3

Parker's newborn session - Aurora, IL newborn photographer

Holy cuteness! Miss Parker is so adorable! I loved the chance to meet her and her siblings at their home in St Charles right before Christmas. 

I was lucky enough to have this adorable pink chair to use in her session, which went perfectly with the crown for Princess Parker. And I love how the lifestyle shots came out with her in her crib!

And come on, if you're born in December, I'm sorry, you're getting Christmas pictures in your newborn session. It's just gotta happen!

Merry Christmas baby Parker and Happy New Year!

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 :)

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! 

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 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!
