Currently, I am offering posed newborn photography and milestone sessions up to age 1 in my home-based studio in Arlington Heights, IL. I have everything you need to make your little one's session look beautiful---props, blankets, wraps backdrops, lighting, etc.
I also offer "add-on" outdoor maternity sessions to anyone who books a newborn session only. It's such a great way to document that moment in time being pregnant and be able to meet each other before your baby arrives.
If you prefer a newborn home session, I offer "lifestyle" sessions in your home. These are family photos of you and your immediate family holding and caring for your baby, along with some more natural images of your newborn at home. I use what you have in your space rather than bring lots of posing equipment that belongs in the studio. Requirements for this session include abundant natural light and location within 25 miles of Arlington Heights, IL.
Milestone sessions are a great way to preserve the memories of how your child is growing in that rapidly changing first year. Perfect times are not according to months but to developmental changes---pushing up easily, then sitting steadily, then cruising/standing well. Sometimes these are at 3-4 months, 6-8 months, and then 9-10 months.
Cake smash sessions are really fun and take place at 1 year. Your baby can have his/her one year pictures and then some food fun! I supply the decor with a color scheme you choose, and you bring the cake. I clean up the mess so it's no trouble for you!
Family sessions are offered on a limited basis throughout the year. Watch for scheduling announcements on my facebook page! I find our location and you show up with your family! I can surely help with clothing choices too---just ask!
