Baby & First Birthday Photography Session, Chicago


My Photography Background

I've been a professional portrait photographer in the Chicago area since 2009, and have had the honor of photographing hundreds of babies and infants.  I invest in training & development yearly, including keeping up to date on the latest portrait standards and practices. As a mom of three and auntie/great aunt to 24 and counting, I've been blessed to engage with babies since I was eleven years young!


My Portrait Approach

Every first birthday session is an opportunity to capture all the details I know (all too well) will change to fast, and celebrate this big one year milestone. Every portrait session goal is a gallery filled with variety and all the details you love, from silly grins and claps to first steps.  Each first birthday session can end with a faux cake, marking the special day.


Your Portrait Experience

From the moment your complete your online questionnare, every detail will be covered.  You will receive a welcome email with the studio address and tips to prepare your infant for the first birthday session.  Upon arrival at the studio, you will find props and accessories ready for your birthday baby's  time in the studio. And then, the fun will begin!


Your little one's baby or first birthday photoshoot takes place in the Glen Ellyn studio, just west of Chicago. These mini photoshoots are for baby only, between 5-12 months old. One outfit, additional accessories welcome.  Various studio props and decorative elements, including a faux cake, combined with the classic cream floor and backdrop to create timeless images of your milestone celebrant!
