Newborn Photoshoot near Elmhurst

This little love bug's Elmhurst newborn photoshoot had me wanting more time with her and her wonderful parents.  Everything about the session was easy, laid back, filled with love and joy, and I did not want it to end.

Newborn Props

Remember the days of a papasan chair in every teenage girl's room or college dorm?  Now the cool kids at Pottery Barn Teen call them Hang-around-chairs.  You can find a cute pink one on sale here!  One of our daughters had a little one in her room, so when I found this adorable newborn papasan prop, the mama feelings came rushing over me.  Auden fit perfectly, and the soft tones suit her complexion beautifully.  Don't you think?

Speaking of props and little girls, did you little enjoy the IKEA doll bed or, even fancier, an American Girl Doll bed?  Found a gem of a newborn prop bed and ended up getting two colors!  You can see more props in use on my Instagram page HEREElmhurt newborn photoshoot, baby in crib during photoshoot

 

What if my baby does not sleep for their newborn pictures?

There was a time awake newborns got my cortisol spiking - I'd worry A LOT about filling galleries!  These days, I love when a baby peeps at me during their portrait session.  Photographing a baby and catching a glimpse of their personality is a treat!  Auden did not give me much awake time during her Elmhurst newborn photoshoot, but I'll take what I can get!  Here are some favorite newborn pictures captured over the years.
