Olivia's newborn session - Aurora, IL newborn photographer

This little lady... she's amazing! It was hard to stop taking pictures of her because she was just so good and did everything I wanted. Lucky me!

I went to Olivia's house when she was 9 days old for her newborn session. This was right before Christmas so of course we had to do some Christmas pictures and I love them! This little hat is just the cutest thing ever. The teal blanket and headband are new to me and I love how the colors turned out!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Miss Olivia!

Now booking Christmas mini sessions!

It's that time of year again! Can you believe it?!

I'll be doing Christmas mini sessions at my home studio in Aurora November 12th and 19th. Sessions are 15 minutes long and come with 5-7 digital images with the print release. And as you can see from my lovely model here, my set-up this year is pretty stinking cute!

To book a mini session, please email april@brightandearlyphotography.com

"A" Family Mini Session - Aurora, IL Photographer

What a lovely family! I had the pleasure of meeting these guys for a fall mini session at the Naperville Riverwalk. After some windy days and changing leaves, we actually ended up with a really HOT day. Luckily these kids are professionals and we were done in 20 minutes.

I love photographing at this part of the Riverwalk because very few people seem to know about it, so it's never really crowded. It'll be our little secret ;)

M Family - Aurora Family Photographer

Look at these lovely people! This is my husband's brother and his family. We were at my in-laws' recently and decided to do an updated family portrait. How lucky are we that my in-laws have such a beautiful backyard?!

Sullivan's 6 month session - Aurora Family Photographer

My, oh my, has this boy grown! I can't believe it's already been six months since we did his newborn session, but here we are! 

We met up at the Naperville Riverwalk for some milestone portraits of Sullivan as well as some with his big brother. They were both SO GOOD, all of us were laughing and having a great time. I love the connection you can just feel between these boys - they are so close! Getting these awesome smiles was easy with such happy kids. 

Happy six months, Sullivan!
