Yara | Chatham Springfield IL Newborn Photographer

Gorgeous Yara was just a dream baby for her session, just like her sister was 2 1/2 years before hers! When she first came in, she was sound asleep and we took advantage of this by capturing some adorable images with her big-sister and family. He grandmother, who lives out of the country, was in town visiting and we were able to capture some beautiful images with her as well!

If you visit my studio, you will see this adorable baby in one of my sample albums. While I do not require you to purchase any additional prints or products, I do work with some amazing vendors that offer some heirloom quality products. I love being “all-inclusive” and providing high-resolution digital images to my clients but some of my newborn and child packages include a print credit to encourage you to print your images and not just leave them on your computer!

Allison | Springfield Chatham IL Newborn Photographer

I am super-duper behind in blogging and when I went back to see where I was in regards to blogging sessions, it was pretty embarrassing. Regardless, one of the benefits of being behind is that I get to go back and relive the sessions through a few images.

Adorable Allison was a total angel for her session and it was such a pleasure to see this family again, as I captured big brother just a few short years ago.

Claire 8 months old | Springfield Rochester IL Baby Photographer

Oh my goodness, I always got excited when adorable Claire came in to see me for a milestone session.  This cutie with her adorable big eyes, dark curls and sweet rolls was on her “A-game” for he 6 month session too.  All smiles, all giggles.

The New Arrival of Wyatt | Springfield IL Birth Photography

There is nothing more fun and exciting than a new baby.   Since I specialize in birth and newborn photography, I am obviously a big fan of babies, but you know what is even more fun for me?   Seeing a new sibling meet their new baby brother or sister for the first time.   Sometimes they are tentative- not really hip on seeing mom in a hospital bed and this new family member in their arms.  Sometimes they are like sweet Sadie below, super-excited and want to explore everything about their new sibling.   Since I was there on the day Sadie was born, is was very special to me to see her grow into this new role.

I love my New Arrival or “fresh-48” sessions like this.  While these don’t have the extensive coverage that a birth does, they offer a peek into your new baby’s life in the hospital.

The Birth of Mackenzie | Springfield IL Birth Photographer

When I first met with Mackenzie’s parents at our consult meeting, I knew that I was going to love working with them.  They were such a fun couple and so easy going!   I was so excited to capture the journey as they welcomed their first child into their life.   The challenge for her parents though is that her dad is a member of the national guard and would be away for training a little bit before her due date.

So….when I got the text that gorgeous Friday morning that her water had broke and she was heading into the hospital my first through went to “Is this his weekend away?”   And indeed, it was.   Dad was several hours away, but was making his way back!    He made it back that afternoon, but without too much time to spare, as sweet Mackenzie made her entrance into the world at 5:51pm 🙂
