Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer

 

Meet Miss Sabrina!! A perfect little squish who looks identical to her daddy and big brother Sammy!! I've known Diana for forever, well before I met my husband and realized he was attending their wedding the day after our very first date :) We quickly grew to be great friends, and I was fortunate enough to capture most of Sammy's milestones. I was a much different photographer back then (he'll be 6 this May), but none the less the moments are special for mom and dad! I was soo thrilled when Diana and Alek's announced they were expecting and couldn't wait to meet their princess. 

Diana was due on April 11'th and was always teasing how she hoped she wouldn't go into labor early or especially on April Fools day. Ironically enough, that's exactly what happened!! Sabrina couldn't wait any longer to meet her mommy, daddy and big brother. Arriving  April 1st at 3:05 am and weighing a whopping 8lbs 1oz and 20.5 inches long!! I came to visit them in the hospital the day she was born and it was so surreal! I typically see newborns in the studio at 6-8lbs around day 6-14 and miss Sabrina was well over that mark on day 1! She was so sleepy and snuggly and I was 100% smitten with her! As we hung out and chatted about Diana's quick delivery, I couldn't help but coo and aww over her (even posing with her with a few snapchat filters) :P As her daddy said, "This is what happens when you let a photographer hold your baby", hehe :) 

When it came time for her session, I couldn't get over how squishy and adorable she was! I have to give Sammy some major props, usually older siblings leave the studio after they're done with their part. Sammy on the other hand was soo well behaved and interested in helping and followed directions to the T! He loved snuggling, holding and giving her kisses. She's one lucky little lady to have his love and affection. 

The session came and went and all was well, I'm soo pleased with the outcome of the gallery and for having this opportunity to capturing these fleeting moments to our dear friends!

Avital "Tali" - Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/5/avital-tali---chicago-studio-newborn-photographer  

Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer

 

My best friend had her baby girl!! She may be 3 months old already but I was finally able to finish her newborn session and write about it. Just in time for Yana's first Mother's Day!!!! I was super excited to be able to capture this wonderful and exciting time for Yana and Matt. Avital or Tali for short is absolutely perfect! I was able to visit her when she arrived home at only 4 days new and we started right away to brainstorm for her newborn session. As always, I let every parent know that their baby will rule the session and will decide what will happen. Tali's personality is strong :) She didn't really allow for me to do 2/3rd of what I wanted to capture for her mommy and daddy. She did do amazing though as long as mom or dad were holding her. Fully awake and looking right into the camera! This is rather rare, but so wonderful!

 

After some time, we simply realized that Tali didn't want to be a little model and we called it. The session may not have gone as we plan (which is more common than not), but the memories and the images we were able to capture are some of my favorite! 

Here's more from when Tali was still in the belly!

Lennon l Chicago Studio Spaghetti & Cake Smash Session with Alina Renert Photography http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/4/lennon-baby-spaghetti-smash  

"Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!" - Dr. Seuss

Chicago Baby Milestone Session - Lennon - Alina Renert Photography-8 copyChicago Baby Milestone Session - Lennon - Alina Renert Photography-8 copy

Miss Lennon is a hoot!! I met her mama last year, jus one month shy of Lennon's arrival. We hit it off rather quickly and I couldn't wait to meet this sweetie! When she arrived, I stopped by her home and captured an adorable 7 day old portrait of her with mama and papa (she already had a formal newborn session scheduled), this was very spur of the moment. I start working with Talie, Lennon's mama, and many of you have had the pleasure of meeting her as my assistant during maternity and newborn sessions. I've had the pleasure of capturing her 3 month, 6 months and now one year milestones :)

She's been my little model for new outfits and props and always does such a great job. This time around, I've been wanting to capture and offer Spaghetti Smashes in additional to Cake Smashes for my milestone sessions. Many kids simply don't like cake or sweets, but most kids do have spaghetti by the age of one and typically love it! 

Lennon is incredibly adorable, she doesn't sit still for a second and does an amazing Army crawl. She had her mama, myself and my mom working tirelessly the entire session to keep her contained - until she had some food in front of her of course and then she sat still and munched on yummy spaghetti and lemon cake! Yum!

I'm so thrilled with how the gallery turned out - Lennon was absolutely perfect for this session!

Alina l Chicago Photographer behind the Camera with Michael Novo Photography http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/4/alina-l-chicago-photographer-behind-the-camera-with-michael-novo-photography  

When a Photographer goes in front of the Camera

 

Being a photographer makes it hard to be in front of the camera (not for everyone, but for majority I'd say). I wasn't too keen on being photographed, but Mike, of Michael Novo Photography, is pretty good at convincing and also making women in particular super comfortable with posing and the general feeling of being a 'fish out of water'. 

He and I planned a few looks, and I completely dropped the ball by only grabbing one of the dresses with me instead of 2-3. True to Mike's nature he just went with the flow :) Something I always recommend for my own client as well is getting their hair and makeup done, the way you feel and carry yourself is a game changer. He scheduled for
Anna Banas  to come to his studio and she did a great job. I highly recommend her if you're looking for a new Makeup Artist to try. 

Since I forgot extra outfits, we did a few starter ''warm up'' shots with my "Newborn Artist" T-shirt from Strawberry Revolution. Mike handed me his Nikon camera (I've always been and always will be a Canon girl though) and he helped ease me into posed, making me laugh and get comfortable. 


I didn't realize how much fun it would actually be to not worry about the lights, camera settings or posing. To just relax and feel good while someone else captured the moment. 

Mike did a wonderful job and I highly recommend him for your portrait, wedding and boudoir inquiries. 

Thanks for making me feel beautiful!

Sam & Matt - Chicago Studio Pregnancy Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/4/sam-matt---chicago-studio-pregnancy-photographer  

Chicago Studio Pregnancy Photographer

 

Matthew and Sam reached out to me more or less on short notice for their maternity session. They had seen a co-worker's maternity and newborn sessions from last year that I did, and decided last minute to capture this moment in their lives. I'm always so thrilled to be able to take on last minute session, but sadly I'm not always available as my schedule fills up very quickly. I really hate having to turn away excited moms and dads during such a special time in their lives. I highly suggest booking maternity sessions prior to being 25 weeks along, this leaves us time to find a date. I typically do maternity sessions as early as 28 weeks and try to not schedule later than 33 weeks in case we need to reschedule with weather. 

Matthew and Sam were both so much fun to work with. Both so eager to meet their little one, share their love and experience this new chapter. Sam is so gorgeous and her smile lit up the room with light and love. Matthew adoringly giving her kisses! 

I love outdoor sessions, but we're able to do boudoir type photos in the studio that we're not really able to do outdoors. I get to be creative with lights, shadows and illusions. Sam was such a sport and posed with ease and grace. 

Thank you for choosing me for your special moments!

Zuri - Chicago Baby Studio Milestone Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/4/zuri---chicago-baby-studio-milestone-photographer  

Chicago Baby Milestone Photographer

 

Baby Zuri is a perfect as they come!! She stayed super happy, connected with the camera and a simple joy to work with! As soon as Zuri, mama and grandma arrived at the studio I knew I was done for. All the smiles and little flirts completely stole my heart. 

We moved through the session with such ease, quickly changing outfits and sets and Zuri staying perfectly content through the whole process. Many babies get irritated with outfit changes, their attention span is limited at this age still, they get hungry and needs breaks. Not miss Zuri :) While her mommy and I were emailing back and forth planning for her session she had some ideas from my previous sessions she wanted to incorporate and I'm so glad Zuri played along for mama with her all pink girly setup! 

I don't think it's a secret that I adore babies of all ages. My favorites though if I had to choose would be newborns, six months and a year. With newborns I get to cuddle and pose them as they are a few days old still. At six months, were able to play and interact and connect with the camera along with some adorable setups. With one year old sessions, most parents choose to do a cake smash in additional to their formal portraits. This year, I'm also offering spaghetti smashes, and in the summer watermelon and bubble bath add-ons!! How much fun is that?!

I'm hoping to see more of Miss Zuri soon!!

Rory - Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/4/rory---chicago-studio-newborn-photographer  

Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer

I do not typically do model calls anymore unless a vendor needs something showcased or I'm looking to try something new. Last month, I was lucky enough to start my marketing/promotional video with, Geoff, whom I've worked with before on a previous session video.

A friend reached out to Michelle to let her know that her sweet Rory might be the perfect little model for what I needed to capture during the session. First of all, can we talk about her name! I cannot get over how adorable and how well it suits her. She posed so wonderfully and her mommy and daddy both so sweet and fun to work with. 

I'm a huge fan of all types of art, body art is just another form of expression and is beautiful! Of course I wanted to incorporate daddy's art into the session as well and I think it was just the extra touch of color that made it perfect for their daddy & daughter photos. What made them extra amazing is the fact that Rory not only stayed awake while in daddy's arms, but also looked right into the camera as daddy snuggled her. 

I think every photographer has their favorite pose no matter how many times we do them, and every baby's flexibility and ability is different that no matter how often we do the pose it's always different. My favorites happen to be the froggy pose (where the baby holds their head in their hands. ***For safety this is a composite, baby is never holding the weight of their head on their own) and the bum up pose, where they're curved with their little tushy in the air <3 

Rory was a dream and I'm so happy with how her little modelling session turned out - I'm eager to see the video and to share it with you all!

Chicago Studio Maternity Photographer

 

I cannot get over how adorable this soon to be family of four is! I first met Jenny and Paul last year for their maternity session for Kosta. Then again when Kosta was born for his newborn session. Mama is expecting again, and another sweet little boy!! Kosta is going to have a best friend and little brother soon. 

At the time of the session, Jenny was 31 weeks along and barely showing still! I think possibility carrying even smaller the second time around. Kosta is already nine months old and such a little ham! He was so flirty and had a good time hanging with his papa while we focused on his mama.

Last year we had done a home lifestyle hybrid maternity session. Their beautiful decor and style was the perfect scenery, but of course we wanted to capture a different look for this year. Since it's still gloomy and the weather has been super inconsistent, we decided on a classic studio maternity session. 
Jenny is breathtakingly beautiful, with classic elegant and grace. She's a natural in front of the camera, the only difficultly I encountered was making sure her baby bump was visible as she's carrying on the smaller side. 

I'm impatiently waiting for their newborn session and cannot wait to see Kosta with his little brother!

Wow, what a power couple!! It was so much fun meeting and working with Angelica and Benny. During the inquiry process and booking, I solely spoke with dad and we discussed and prepped all the ideas together. When we met for their session, I mentioned and gave a huge pat on the back for being the most involved dad to date. His response was so simple and perfect, "She's got enough on her plate, this was the least I could do for her". Swoon!!! Take note husbands and daddy's to be!! 

I like to make all my sessions fun, but especially maternity ones. If we're having fun it'll show on the images and it'll be what you'll remember when you look back to this special time. I like to play music to help relax the parents to be and Angelica chose Country Tunes which had her smiling and swaying!

It's so fun knowing the stories behind the love of two people, it's adorable that these two have been together through High School and College with such a strong and deep love for one another. I know their little bundle is going to be loved immensely and unconditionally! 

I'm so thrilled with how this session went and the beautiful moments I was able to capture, now I just sit back and wait to snuggle their cutie!

During Rita's pregnancy we've only referred to this little guy as, DangerBoy :) It's how mama originally also made their announcement they were expecting. Hence his onesie and cape wearing way!

Jonah flashed a few smiles here and there but he definitely made me work hard to the gallery we captured. How adorable is he in posing!!

Maybe Jonah will be a very talented pianist like his mama and grandma are, for now he simply enjoyed hitting those keys and creating ''music''. I simply adore this little man and can't wait to continue to be a part of his life and to watch him grow. 

Sorry mama it took me forever to finish his gallery though :-*

I adore little Max!! I haven't seen him since his newborn session and oh boy has be grown and has become such a handsome cutie! His eight month session may have been short but it wasn't lacking in smiles of adorableness. Little Batman is such a flirt and all smiles and happiness. His big blue eyes, chubby cheeks, rolls for days and his captivating smile never gets old! 

I love photographing sitter sessions, babies are able to sit (best when they're able to sit unassisted for safety purposes), still do tummy time or are starting to crawl too. Their personality shines through as they're more interactive at this stage of their development. We're able to change out a number of outfits, props and setups.

I have the cutest neighbors ever and I love being able to capture his milestones :)

Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer

 

Layla's mama reached out to me after she was already born. I was happy I was able to fit her onto the schedule as more often than not I don't have the availability for last minute newborns. It makes me super sad when I have to turn parents away when I can't fit them into the schedule. Thankfully everything worked out and I was able to meet Layla!! I had met mama many many years ago through a mutual friend, we used to watch American Idol (Season 1) together (should be an indication of how long ago this was...). Doreen has an amazing voice herself and I believe even auditioned back in the day! 

Both Doreen and Dan (I was very surprised little one didn't have a D starting name too) were both so sweet and caring towards one another and so very much in love with Layla. Every session I take and every newborn I meet they leave a lasting impression on me and during Layla's sessions it was so cute when she smiled in mama's arms, but more so that she liked to stick her tongue out...the whole time! I find that incredibly cute and endearing, some newborns just prefer it this way :P 

I couldn't be happier with how Layla's session turned out and I'm so thrilled to have been able to be apart of her first photo shoot!

Shailen - you'll move mountains! 
 

I love meeting new families especially from referrals from other mamas! Disha reached out to me after seeing my best friends maternity and newborn sessions. Disha and Akhil were so wonderful to work with and Shailen a complete joy! 

I always notify parents prior to sessions that your little ones run the show, they are the boss 100%! They each have their own level of flexibility, comfort and preferences. There are babies who sleep and pose in props great and some that don't at all. There are newborns who pose effortlessly on the beanbag (for those sleepy curly newborn poses) and some who don't allow for any to be captured. It's not that galleries are better or worse, but just different as each baby is individual and they already has their own personality and needs. Shailen, enjoyed being in mommy and daddy's arms along with being snuggled up in the rug the most! We were able to capture some adorable wide awake moments with amazing connection with the camera - daddy's little football player was ready for his closeup!  My absolute favorite vendor and moms adore the animals sets I provide are by
Snug Sparrow Newborn Props and Knits. Whenever I need a custom order or have a wacky idea (like a knight in shining armor look) she's my go to person! 

Thank you for choosing to work with me and my creative vision.

Emily | Chicago Maternity Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/3/emily-chicago-maternity-photographer Chicago Studio Maternity Photographer

To new beginnings... 

Maternity sessions are so special not only for my expecting mama's, but for me as well. Something about creating and growing life that brings joy and happiness into our lives. The excitement of meeting a perfect little baby two people in love conceived is magical. 

Chicago has been finicky with weather as of late - so most of the recent maternity sessions have been done in the studio and allowed for me to play with light, posing and the connection between parents more than when we work outdoors, where the scenery pops more creating a different type of portrait. For some studio sessions are more difficult as there is more camera connection and less distractions. I typically like to start off with mom and dad together so they have one another to lean on and build a level of comfort not only with me, but with the camera as well. I always joke that the beginning of the session is a night and day difference in posing and confidence. By the time we finish, my mama's know exactly how to pose and what photographs best on them. Their confidence is through the roof as they feel beautiful, sexy and vibrant. 

I loved working with this sweet couple as they await their bundle's arrival, Emily being a complete natural in front of the camera and having such beautiful pose and grace!  I'm impatiently waiting to meet their sweetie soon!!

Kiyansh - Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/3/kiyansh---chicago-studio-newborn-session Chicago Studio Newborn Session

I loved working with Prachi and Kaushik when I met them last year for their maternity session. Their gallery then was stunning and we instantly clicked! Such an incredibly sweet couple who couldn't wait to meet their baby boy! 

Due to unforeseen circumstances there were complications after birth and we weren't able to schedule Kiyansh until he was 8 weeks old, which is much further along than I ever suggest doing newborn sessions. Despite being much older and having had a bit of a rougher start, he was a perfect little baby! Being older he didn't really want to sleep all that much, but we were able to get some adorable sleepy shots and poses as well as fully alert and full eye contact.

He's a sweet little warrior who's going to go through life having already survived the hardest and the rest is easy breezy from here. We started off with parent photos, and being 8 weeks old he was much larger, and heavier than a typical newborn. He was fully alert and the adorable, his full face yawn totally stole my heart! Mom and dad have been doing an amazing job supporting one another and being there for all of Kiyansh's needs. They're not only so beyond in love with him but their love for one another is just as beautiful. 

During Kiyansh's session I started capturing a new favorite moment/pose. While doing the bum up pose (which is the curly tushie pose) I have dads and sometimes moms place their hand on their little bundles. This not only shows the sheer size of how small or big their newborn is, but also creates a deeper connection to the image by being a part of the photo with their cutie.

Mama has been sending me updated video's and photos as Kiyansh has been developing and growing and I absolutely LOVE being a part of your little ones growth journey, please always feel free to update me!! 

Thank you for choosing me and trusting me with your most precious gift in life.

Zoe - Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/3/adejoke---chicago-studio-maternity Studio Newborn Session | Chicago Newborn Portraits

 

Back in December a had a very eager and excited dad reach out about a maternity session. They had just flown into Chicago the previous weekend and were looking to book something last minute. I was able to squeeze Tosin and Adejoke in for a stunning maternity session. I had such a great time getting to know them and their cutie, learning about their culture, occupations and how they were enjoying the windy city! 

When they returned for Zoe's newborn session I was completely smitten with her! Her luscious locks, chubby cheeks and adorable little lips! Not only did the session go amazingly well, she slept so well and posed beautifully! Her big brother was such a champ during all the photos as well. 

It's not very difficult to see how very much in love the whole family is with this adorable sweetie. She was due on February 15, but decided to arrive earlier so we did her session on Valentine's Day. Since it was a day of love, I incorporated some adorable V-Day setups with colors and little hearts : )

Be sure to scroll all the way down to view images form mama's maternity session as well!

Yana - Chicago Lifestyle Maternity Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/3/chicago-lifestyle-hybrid-fall-maternity-session-with-alina-renert---leytman-family Chicago Lifestyle Maternity Session l Alina Renert Photography 

Soon there will be three...

I've had the pleasure of being friends and now even family with Yana since freshman year of High School where we met by chance. We're been besties ever since that summer she turned sixteen, I don't have many memories that have shaped me without Yana being a part of them.

When Yana and Matt met, it wasn't hard to see how much in love and perfect they were for one another. We stood by one another as we both married our other halves. My husband and I were lucky enough to spend my birthday in London visiting these lovebirds while they lived abroad for an adventure of a lifetime...until last year Yana announced to me they were expecting!! The true adventure of life is now just beginning! 

The words: thrilled, ecstatic and happy are simply not strong enough to express my joy as they expected their little ''bananchik". They decided to keep the gender a surprise and referred to their baby as a little growing banana. 

When we were brainstorming their maternity session, I knew that Yana and Matt are a more lifestyle approach couple and that's what I had suggested, that we do a combination of lifestyle intimate life moments and some fun outdoor Chicago locations. I couldn't have been happier with the results of their session. 

Their love speaks for themselves in the image :) Scroll the bottom to see a preview from their newborn session...did they have a boy or a girl?

Alessandra | Chicago Newborn Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/6/alessandra-chicago-newborn-photographer Studio Newborn Session | Chicago Newborn Portraits

"When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew." - William Shakespeare

Nancy and Johnathon are on the fast track to happily ever after, experiencing love at first sight for a second time when they first laid their eyes on tiny Alessandra. I love getting to know my clients, and learning their love stories. Nancy and Johnathon met while they were living in Chicago and New York, but quickly fell in love despite the distance. They quickly picked Chicago as their home together, got married, and welcomed sweet Alessandra into their hearts! Despite all the exhaustion new parenthood brings, you cannot mistake how in love these two are with each other and their new baby girl.

Alessandra was the tiniest baby that I have had the pleasure of photographing, weighing in at a mere 5 pounds of pure perfection. She had the tiniest little details and wispy hair. She also has a natural talent as a newborn model because she would perfectly pose herself with her little hands! Alessandra was so much fun to work with and snuggle. Baby girl didn't want to sleep too much, but when she did we were able to get beautiful images of her, as well as with the whole family.

Congratulations Nancy and Johnathon! Alessandra is just perfect!

Rita | Chicago Maternity Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/6/rita-chicago-maternity-photographer "If you have nothing in life but a good friend, you're rich." - Michelle Kwan

My best friend is having a baby! Rita and I have been friends since we were about 10 years old. Our moms worked together, and decided to introduce the families. We soon became inseparable, and have been through everything together! Boyfriends, graduations, weddings, and now the next phase of life - mommyhood! Despite being friends forever, I have only ever photographed Rita and her husband Dan one other time, before their official engagement session. It was also before I was a professional photographer. Even so, we captured some great memories that day when they were just babies, and real babies were a distant thought.

I traveled to Wisconsin to do Rita and Dan's maternity session, and was looking forward to working in different landscape and locations. However, while I was there, the weather was unseasonably cold and far too cold for being outside in maternity gowns! Luckily, I always like to be prepared, and I had brought my studio lighting even though the plan had been an all outdoor session. We did go outside in Rita and Dan's backyard quickly, and were able to get some gorgeous images in a short amount of time. For the rest of the session, however, we stayed nice and warm with a cozy lifestyle session!

We had so much fun together, and lots of laughs. The images perfectly capture Rita and Dan's relationship. They are so comfortable with and have such a natural love for one another. Plus, they love to laugh together. They also have the best smiles! I am pretty certain that their little love will also have an amazing smile

I am so excited to be on this journey with Rita and Dan. I know that they will be amazing parents, and I cannot wait to watch it happen!

I am also so excited to be an auntie and can't wait to snuggle their baby!

Diana | Chicago Newborn Photographer http://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/6/diana-chicago-newborn-photographer "Nothing is impossible for pure love." - Mahatma Gandhi

Perfect Diana recently came to visit me at my studio for her newborn session, along with her mama, Ira, and her mother's cousin, Svitlana, who was helping Ira adjust to mommy-hood. Ira, looked amazing for being just 16 days post-partum. Typically, I like to schedule my newborn sessions before 16 days old but sometimes it just does not work out with scheduling. Diana was a dream regardless of being a few days older than I prefer. At 8 pounds, Diana was just a perfect squishy babe.

When we got started with the setups of Ira and Diana together, Diana was wide awake but she was so happy and content in her mama's arms. The resulting images are absolutely stunning portraits of a mother and her new baby. When it came time to get Diana to sleep, it took a little work but once she was asleep, she was wonderful. Her round cheeks and creamy complexion make her look just like a little baby doll, and I could not get enough of her! We were able to get through so many poses and setups, including one that I was sure we would not be able to do given her age. 

The hanging floral wreath prop that I have is gorgeous but a bit more of difficult prop to use during a session. Of course, newborn safety is my top priority, and all images are composites. Hands are on the baby at all times. Even so, it is still a prop that you want to have a baby in a deep sleep to use. Diana did super! With the help of my assistant, and Ira's cousin Svitlana, we were able to capture the sweetest images of Diana in the floral wreath.

Finally, if you are already in the studio to help mama (and me) during the session, then you really need to get in at least a couple of images! It took some convincing but I was able to get Svitlana to agree. I am so happy she did because the moments captured are just beautiful, and ones that I know will always be special to the entire family!

Thank you Ira, Svitlana and Diana for spending part of your day with me!
