Bloomington Newborn LeRoy Baby Photographer | Newborn Baby Girl Session with 9 Day Old Corinne

Well, this little girl is beautiful, and with a mama like Brooke, we would expect no different. Brooke and I go way back to playing with cabbage patch kids and causing mischief on our summer breaks. It was so nice to catch up with her. We have both accomplished so much in life since our Barbie days. Her and her husband just welcomed little Corrine into the world 9 short days ago! Here she is. Her session was filled with pinks, mint and lavender. I also got to use the tree stump that’s been in storage for months – thanks to my husband for carrying that massive thing down the stairs!

Streator Baby Sullivan Newborn Photographer | Newborn Baby Boy Session with Coen

This family is gorgeous all the way around!! I loved having Coen’s sister and brother in on the fun during his newborn session. I know they will always cherish these images!

So let’s talk about this baby boy’s cheeks! Are they not to die for?! I mean, come on!! He’s is so handsome already. He gave me a hard time at the beginning, but I eventually won the battle after mom put him into a milk comma!!

World, Meet Coen.

Galesburg Baby Streator Family Photographer | 3 Month Baby Session with Wren

Where have I been, you ask?

Well, that question is a little more loaded than I care to get into at this point, but let me just say that it’s been crazy over here. We’ve had 4 birthdays, an anniversary, sick kids and an AMAZING trip to Florida with our family for a week. I’ve been having the vacation blues since we returned. I need sun, sand and an ocean in my life a little more often I think!! I could photograph people there everyday, all day!! As long as I can swim in and/or see the ocean at least once a day, I’d be happy.

So, I’m behind on blogging (obviously) and this little 3 mont old baby girl is too cute not to share. Wren is growing before my eyes and I can barely take it. Look at her massive brown eyes and her little chubby cheeks (and need I even mention her rolls?!)

9 Month Baby Girl Session with Wren | Mackinaw Baby Decatur Child Photographer

This little girl stole my heart from the moment she arrived at my studio as a newborn.

On another note, please stop growing, Wren!!

Baby Girl Newborn Session with Merredith | El Paso IL Baby Streator Newborn Photographer

Merredith came to me for a last minute newborn session and she won me over at first site. Those lashes, and the little fluff of hair in the back of her head. She had perfect skin too. Although she fought very hard to stay asleep (she didn’t want to miss anything), I eventually won – as I always do. Meet Merredith, 14 days new.

Studio Maternity Session | Bloomington IL Maternity Hudson Newborn Photographer

I will admit I was a bit nervous about this maternity session. I have just begun to embark on studio lighting and I haven’t done many adults in the studio since I started using them exclusively. These two were amazing and so easy going. They let me put my spin on the session and had a few ideas they wanted to incorporate of their own. I couldn’t be happier for them to welcome their first baby – a little boy – into the world in just a few short weeks!

Goodfield Baby Morton IL Photographer | 6 Month Baby Boy Session with Carter

6 month baby sessions are probably some of my favorites. What’s not to love about chubby, happy, drooling babies? They have just learned to sit, they have built in toys at the bottom of their little legs [their feet] and their eyes sparkle with innocence and curiosity. Carter’s session was no different. He even go to wear shoes for the first time. I think I only got 2 photos of him looking at me (and I had to make some really offensive and obnoxious noises) after we put these on him because he was mesmerized.
