Lakeview babe | Chicago newborn photographer

For a long time if you'd have asked me if I preferred doing newborn sessions in the studio or in-home, I definitely would have said studio. Photography is all about the lighting, and I never have to worry about lighting in my studio. My strobes are reliable and consistent—unlike sunshine in Chicago!

But more and more I'm really enjoying my in-home sessions (in spite of the often challenging lighting scenarios). I love capturing those real, organic moments between mom, dad and their new little one, like the ones from this newborn session in Lakeview. Enjoy!

Proud big sister | Chicago newborn photographer

It was really important to this family that their dog, Callie, be included in their newborn photos. Some dogs kind of freak out when there's a new baby in the house, but Callie was so good with her baby brother and was on her best behavior during the shoot. All I had to do was ask her a question ("Callie, have you been to Colorado?") and she would tilt her head to one side, perk up her ears, and look straight into the camera—adorable! Oh yeah, and they had a super cute baby too :)

Bucktown baby | Chicago newborn photographer

I'm not quite sure how it got to be mid-December already. Fall is always so crazy busy with family and newborn sessions, and then all of a sudden it's a couple weeks before Christmas and I haven't done my own holiday cards or even thought about holiday shopping yet. Next year will be different, ha!  

This is one of my favorite recent newborn sessions, so I thought I'd blog it before the holiday chaos begins :) It was so much fun to visit this family again at their lovely home in Bucktown to photograph their second baby, who was a champion sleeper just like her big sister was at her newborn shoot a couple years back. Both the girls and their ridiculously cute dog were rock stars for the shoot—they made my job easy!
