B Family Maternity Session - Aurora, IL family photographer

Can we talk about how GORGEOUS this family is?! Look at this mama, she's stunning!

For our maternity session, we met out at Fabyan Forest Preserve in Geneva, which is one of my favorite places to photograph. Getting there around 6:30 meant we got this beautiful light that I love. 

It was so nice to meet you guys, congratulations on your new addition!

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 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.

Outdoor Maternity Session - Aurora Family Photographer

You guys, this is seriously the sweetest family in the world, hands down. I am so lucky that we're (kind of) related and I get to see them at more than just photo shoots. And their family is growing! This little boy will start out so blessed having parents like these and Fiora will be an amazing sister, I'm sure!

Aurora Family Photographer - 2nd Birthday/Family Maternity Session

What a lucky girl I am to get to see this family again! And now that Lauren is expecting another, I'll get to see them again in just a few months.

We lucked out with some great November weather and got to do Nolan's 2nd birthday pictures outside. He was pretty excited about all the places to run! And leaves are super fun, too, of course. I'm looking forward to seeing them in February for newborn pictures!

 

Caliban Maternity

What a pleasure it was to meet this family! We went to Knoch Knolls Park in Naperville for their maternity session and were able to get some of Miss Ella on her own while we were there. And of course I am SO looking forward to photographing their newborn in a few weeks!

Wise Family

This family is so sweet! We had a beautiful day for maternity portraits at the Springbrook Trail in Naperville. Little Theo was such a great model! With a toddler already and a baby coming soon, this family is about to be very busy; I can't wait to do their newborn pictures!

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!

Katie & Jim

Katie has been a friend of mine since high school. I photographed their engagement session and their wedding back in 2009, so of course I was over the moon to get the chance to capture their maternity portraits. Katie had such a beautiful belly and she has turned into an even more beautiful mommy.


Kraabel Maternity

I've had the pleasure of photographing this family since Ryan was six months old. He'll be two in January, which is when they're expecting a new baby! It was a beautiful day for family maternity portraits in Aurora. I can't wait to meet their new addition and get some great newborn photos!
