Welcome to Newborn Photography in Chicago: Capturing Precious Moments

Are you expecting a new addition to your family soon? Congratulations! Motherhood is AWESOME! As you start on this beautiful journey, one of the moments you’ll want to treasure forever is your baby’s newborn stage. That’s where a skilled newborn photographer can capture all those important moments in those precious early days. I personally photographed my daughter everyday for the first 30 days and its amazing how much they change and grow in such a short amount of time! If you’re still early in the process we also offer Maternity Photography.

But with so many photographers out there, how do you choose the right one for your newborn’s first photoshoot? Let’s go into the details of what you should look for in a newborn photographer, the benefits of a newborn photography session, and how to make the most of this magical experience.

What to Look for in a Newborn Photographer?

Experience in Newborn Photography

When selecting a photographer, prioritize experience in newborn photography. An experienced photographer will know how to handle newborns safely, capture their delicate features, and create stunning portraits that you’ll cherish forever.

Portfolio showcasing Newborn Sessions

Take a peek at the photographer’s portfolio. Look for a variety of newborn sessions that showcase their style, creativity, and ability to capture those fleeting newborn moments beautifully.

Photography Style and Approach

Every photographer has a unique style. Some may prefer classic, timeless portraits, while others excel in artistic, whimsical setups. Choose a photographer whose style resonates with your vision.

Benefits of a Newborn Photography Session

Capturing Precious Moments

The newborn stage is fleeting, but photographs can freeze those precious moments in time. A newborn photoshoot allows you to capture your baby’s tiny details, cute little smile, adorable expressions, and the love and joy of your growing family.

Creative Posing and Setups

A skilled newborn photographer knows how to create personalized setups using props, wraps, and backdrops. From whimsical fairy-tale themes to cozy, natural setups, the possibilities are endless.

High-Quality Prints and Artwork

Investing in a professional newborn photoshoot means you’ll also be able to purchase high-quality prints and artwork that you can proudly display in your home or share with loved ones.

Choosing the Right Chicago Newborn Photographer

Studio vs. On-location Newborn Sessions

Consider whether you prefer a studio environment or a session in the comfort of your own home in the Chicagoland area. Both options offer unique benefits, so choose based on your preferences and convenience.  Also consider if you want studio lighting aka flashes or natural light only.

Finding a Photographer Specializing in Newborn Photography

Look for a photographer who specializes in newborn photography. Their expertise and understanding of newborn behavior will ensure a smooth and enjoyable session.

Availability and Booking Process

Check the photographer’s availability and inquire about their booking process. We recommend scheduling your photoshoot from days 5-12, that’s when they looks their best!  It’s also essential to secure your session well in advance or at least plan a ballpark date.

Making the Most of Your Newborn Photography Session

Preparing for the Session

Prepare for your newborn session by gathering props, outfits, and any sentimental items you’d like to include, wedding rings for sure! Discuss your ideas and preferences with the photographer beforehand.

Capturing Special Family Moments

Newborn sessions aren’t just about the baby; they’re also an opportunity to capture special family moments. Those photos are so priceless, the candid interactions, cuddles, and tender moments with your little one.

Understanding the Editing Process and Delivery of Photos

After the session, we will edit and enhance the photos before delivering the final images. Discuss timelines, editing styles, and delivery methods to ensure you receive photos that exceed your expectations.
