While it was cold and cloudy in Chicago, baby Lydia’s newborn photo session brightened up the day.  I loved everything about this in-home shoot.  Baby Lydia’s cute smiles and beautiful big blue eyes, as well as hand made props, made this session amazing.

About the session

After photographing the maternity session with baby Lydia’s parents a couple of months ago, I was really excited about returning to their beautiful home and meeting this sweet baby girl.  In the anticipation of Lydia’s arrival, her mother knitted and crafted many beautiful props.  The flower headband we used in the first image was the most intricate one that I have ever seen.  She also made cute stuffed animals and a purple blanket.  These handmade items contributed to the uniqueness of the session.

When I arrived at Lincoln Park to photograph this beautiful family, the first signs of Spring were present.  In fact, it was a perfect day, with 70 degree-weather and sunny skies.  Even better, Lincoln Park’s Nature Boardwalk was a great location for taking advantage of the wonderful afternoon.

It was my pleasure to photograph this family’s very first professional photography session in Chicago.  Just like me, this family very recently moved here from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Baby Robby just turned one year old.  He is such an exuberant and playful little guy. I had the most fun following him around the Boardwalk, capturing all of his smiles and expressions.  Enjoy!family-photos-lincoln-parklincoln-park-family-photoslincoln-park-chicago-family-photographerlincoln park zoo family photolincoln-park-zoo-family-photographerlincoln-park-chicago-zoo-familyfamily portrait under the honeycomb structurelincoln-park-chicago-family-photofamily photography chicago zoohoneycomb at the lincoln park zoo family photoschicago-zoo-family-photo-2lincoln park zoo photosfamily-photography-lincoln-park-zoofamily-photo-chicago-lincoln-park-naturefamily photos at the chicago zoobaby hand touching a flowerfamily portrait at the lincoln park boardwalksmiling baby boy at the nature boardwalk chicagofamily-photos-chicago-zoo-

Baby Eva is here and how cute is she?! This beautiful newborn baby girl was just a joy to photograph. It was also wonderful to see my clients Marika and Dean as first time parents, so in love with their own little bundle of joy.

As an in-home lifestyle newborn photographer I get to catch many expressions but this first image here takes the cake.  Baby Eva’s yawn is perfect. It’s just as important to take in-between shots as they are happening as it is to get a beautiful portrait.

I enjoyed this session and I hope you will too.

How wonderful it is to be invited into this family’s home in Lincoln Park to capture their baby’s first photo session.  This sweet baby girl was just a joy to photograph. Taylor’s chubby cheeks, beautiful big blue eyes and reddish hair had me swooned at the first sight.  At only one month old, she had all sorts of expressions and even surprised me with a few smiles.

This is a third consecutive baby photo session that I photographed in my very own neighborhood.  I am on a roll to becoming a number one newborn and family Lakeview photographer. Ok, maybe I am getting a little bit ahead of myself, but I would love nothing more. My neighborhood is amazing and people in it are even more so.  As someone who just moved here, I feel like we scored a lottery by moving to this area of town. I just love it.


I enjoy being a lifestyle newborn photographer because I get to capture the baby’s first days in their own environment. I am able to photograph the beautiful nursery, crib, big furry brother and all the details and emotions, which I then visually weave into a one of a kind photo story.

Baby Callum was the sweetest throughout the entire session.  Enjoy!
