Evelyn | Lake County IL Newborn Photographer

Oh sweet baby Evelyn – you are a beauty. I was so excited to hear that this wonderful family was expecting again. I first met them (as a family, I went to HS with her momma!) for their first daughter’s newborn session. Both sisters are equally stunning. They are going to be so close growing up!

Enjoy some favorites from our time together!

‘Baby Mine’

Baby mine, don’t you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part,
Baby of mine.

Little one, when you play;
Don’t you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
Never a tear,
Baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you
They’d end up loving you too.
All those same people who scold you;
What they’d give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
You’re not much, goodness knows.
But you’re so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.

All of those people who scold you,
What they’d give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes
You’re not much, goodness knows.
But you’re so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.
Baby of mine

Jack | Lake County IL Newborn Photographer

Not going to lie, I was pretty excited for baby Jacks session. He was born a little bit early and had a short stint in the NICU. He is doing totally fabulous and has completely captured his Mommy and Daddy’s hearts. I was so antsy to get my session cuddles in with him. So when the time finally came, I was jumping for joy!

Take a peek at some of my favorites from our session together!

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

If that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring

If that diamond turns to brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat,

If that billy goat don’t pull,
Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and a bull.

If that cart and bull tip over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

If that dog named Rover don’t bark,
Mama’s gonna buy you a horse and a cart.

If that horse and cart fall down,
you’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

Newborn Photography Mentoring | Lake County IL newborn photographer

I was so excited to recently have a day with Waffles&Honey Photography to teach her some ins an outs of natural newborn photography. She was so amazing, sweet, and everything I would want in a friend :) Her talent is just as big as her heart. SO happy to have met and cuddle newborns all day with her!

We met 3 fabulous families that day with sweet little bundles.

My heart flutters when I see each of these precious babies and their families. I LOVE my job so so much. I am so happy to be able to call this my profession. Not a day goes by that I am not so thankful to be able to do what I love and call it ‘work’.

So excited to blog these babies and deliver their images to these families.

Enjoy!

Lillian | Lake County IL Newborn Photographer

I am gearing up for a trip to Ft. Collins, Colorado next week – so I am catching up on most session edits from the last 2 weeks. If you are waiting on photos, they should be in your inbox soon!

Oh this sweet little lady. She was utterly adorable in every way. I was so happy to have had the time to spend with her and her Momma for our session. I can’t wait to meet the rest of the family! These babies lately have been spoiling me with their sweetness and being on their best behavior. I love it!

Take a looksy at some of my favorites from our time together!

The smiles returning to the faces

Mommy Mini Session Love | Lake County IL Family Photographer

I was totally in love with these Mommy mini sessions from earlier this month. Each Momma was so beautiful. Even more so when they shined with their kids. I feel like Mothers are at their most beautiful when they are just connecting with their children. Such a site to see. It is so amazing when Mom’s want to be IN the photo with their children.

Some of these Momma’s are regulars of mine. Some were new faces. So appreciative to each one of them. Some of my most cherished photos from childhood are of my mom and I (and sister). Not even smiling at the camera even. Just being us.

Please take a peek at my day with these lovely ladies and their darling kiddos. I couldn’t choose just a few, so I included them all! Love this set up. It is a new regular of mine that many of you have probably started to see by now. I absolutely die over this new antique quilt I recently picked up.

Lake County IL Family Photography

So sweet! I love these kiddos!

What a bubba! He was so handsome.

These two. I can’t even.

My heart! So glad grandma got to come!

So much gorgeousness going on in these galleries. I would have loved to do a Daddy mini session date but my schedule just didn’t allow it this year. Got to shout out to all my Dad’s too! It is my goal to get some shots like this with ALL 3 of my kids very soon. I always seem to have just one kid in a photo with me at a time :) I just got a remote shutter, I will have to work on it. Soon! Get in those photos, Mommy’s!

Joey | Lake County IL Newborn Photographer

I recently saw sweet baby Joey at the studio. He was such a good baby! He had perfect sweet little face and features. His Momma and Daddy were amazing people who have so much love for this little boy. You can just feel it in their photos.

He was the most recent string of baby boys in the baby boy boom I have had recently. It is so funny how these strings of boys or girls come along :)

Enjoy some of my favorites from our session together! Such a gorgeous family. It was hard to just choose a handful! I wish this family so well and I can’t wait to see baby Joey grow!

Oh my! I can’t stand the cuteness!

lake county il newborn photographylake county il newborn photography

I always make it a point to do a couple womb poses in my newborn sessions. Sometimes parents say that it reminds them of their ultrasound photos which I think is such a cool observation. I love to mimic what the baby was positioned like in Mommy’s tummy. I think its so classic and beautiful.

lake county il newborn photography

When ever I post a newborn session in the blog I always get drawn to the song you are my sunshine. It is such a sweet song that I imagine a Mommy singing to their new baby. Brings a little tear to my eye.

You are my sunshine

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head, and I cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

Ashton | Lake county IL Newborn Photographer

My schedule allows for one in home lifestyle session a month. I was so excited to meet this family as on of my great friends referred them to me (who did their first baby’s newborn photos). I had already heard how amazing this bunch was so I knew they were such a right fit.

Sweet baby Ashton was pretty dang cute if I do say so myself. His big sister was such a rockstar and loves her baby brother so much. Mom and Dad were also nothing short of amazing. So glad to have met them and I can’t wait to hear all of the great things they do in this world.

Enjoy some of my favorites and what a lifestyle newborn session looks like.

Henry | Lake County IL Newborn Photographer

Oh, sweet Henry! He was such a handsome little guy. Him and his big brother are two little peas in a pod! Those fellows are going to have a great time as brothers growing up. They will be so close and have so many adventures to go on.

Henry’s Mommy and Daddy were great! Such good conversation during our session. I love making new friends through photography. I can’t leave a session without making a new friend :)

Enjoy some of my favorite from my time with Henry and his family. Prepare yourself for cuteness overload.

Just look at these two. I can’t get over this! So much cuteness going on right here.

There you have it! Henry and his sweet family are now on the blog. I hope you enjoyed!

Let them be little

I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand
Felt so good in it, no bigger than a minute
How it amazes me, you’re changing with every blink
Faster than a flower blooms they grow up all too soon

So let them be little ’cause they’re only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh just let them be little

I’ve never felt so much in one little tender touch
I live for those kisses, prayers and your wishes
Now that you’re teaching me things only a child can see
Every night while we’re on our knees all I ask is please

Let them be little ’cause they’re only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh just let them be little
