I have deliberated extensively on how best to convey my thoughts and feelings regarding the ongoing events in Israel. It is my sincere hope that this message resonates not only within the Jewish and Israeli communities but also with a broader audience that cares deeply about the world we all live in.

The current situation in Israel is profoundly terrifying and entirely unacceptable. In 2023, it is unfathomable that innocent individuals, especially babies/children, should be subjected to the turmoil and suffering that they are experiencing. As a mother, I can only begin to grasp the paralyzing fear that must grip the hearts of parents in such dire circumstances.

Let us remember that behind the headlines and statistics are real people—families, loved ones, and individuals with dreams and aspirations. I had the privilege of meeting Shira, Israeli-born, along with her remarkable mom, brother, and her future sister-in-law. Their recent visit to Chicago, a long-awaited respite from the challenges posed by the pandemic, has now been overshadowed by current events. Mattan, her brother, was drafted into the IDF reserves, disrupting plans for his impending wedding this very month.

I have family and friends in Israel myself. Keep your thoughts and prayers with and for Israel, the Jewish community, and humanity. Let us stand together in solidarity and empathy, transcending boundaries and affiliations to advocate for a world where such suffering and uncertainty are no longer tolerated.

Meet baby Leo – the newest star in town! This session was extra special as Mom and Dad were referred to me, and let me tell you, that's the biggest compliment a photographer can receive. It's like a warm hug for the heart!

Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Leo-8 copy 2Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Leo-8 copy 2 Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Leo-4 copy 2Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Leo-4 copy 2 Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Leo-19 copy 2Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Leo-19 copy 2 Baby Leo decided to surprise everyone by arriving a bit earlier than expected, coming to at 5 weeks old. And let me spill the beans – he was absolute perfection. 

Now, let's talk about Leo's nursery – a safari-themed wonderland! I wanted to help his room decor and let me tell you, it was the cutest decision ever. We played around with adorable animal hats, but my absolute favorite. The lion hat! Oh my goodness, Leo in that lion hat while letting out a tiny yawn – cuteness overload alert!

Mom and Dad had some special requests too. They asked for a couple of specific props, like a moon and that oh-so-adorable lion hat. Oh, and the cherry on top? They brought along a super special blanket and a Stitch stuffed animal that we incorporated into the session. These are what make each session so unique and special to each family.

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-46 copyChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-46 copy Every session is unique and special, but there's something truly magical about capturing the beauty of expecting parents in a studio setting. What a memorable maternity session that highlights the joy and love between an expectant couple. Despite rescheduling due to poor air quality and allergies acting up, studio sessions can be just as fun and stunning as outdoor photos, with the added benefit of playing with light, and silhouettes, and even exploring boudoir photography.  Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-65 copyChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-65 copy While outdoor sessions have their charm, a studio offers a controlled environment where I can create a variety of artistic shots. We played with different lighting techniques to emphasize the couple's natural beauty. The interplay of shadows and soft light added an artistic touch to the images, creating captivating silhouettes that beautifully framed the expecting mom's baby bump.  Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-59 copy 2Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-59 copy 2 Beyond the technical aspects of photography, the magic truly lies in the emotions captured. This expecting couple, radiating happiness and love for each other, made my job even more delightful. It's always a joy to learn about how couples meet and fell in love. Hearing their love story adds depth and meaning to the images I create, making the experience more personal and intimate. Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-85 copy 2Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-85 copy 2 A key aspect of maternity photography is capturing the anticipation and excitement of soon-to-be parents. During the session, we had the opportunity to chat with the expectant mom and dad about their hopes, dreams, and expectations for parenthood. Their enthusiasm was infectious, and it shone through in every shot. These moments serve as a beautiful reminder of the emotions and anticipation they felt during this stage of their journey. Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-34 copy 2Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Alisa-34 copy 2 I love witnessing new moms' grace and ease in front of the camera. Like many moms-to-be, she initially felt unsure about posing, but as the session progressed, she embraced her natural beauty and exuded confidence. This is common for many expecting mothers, and I always strive to make them feel comfortable and empowered during the shoot, Dads too!

I recently had the pleasure of capturing a beautiful maternity session for a mom who was referred to me through a Facebook group. When we first chatted, she expressed her desire for a studio session, which is not the typical request during the summer months. However, I was thrilled to accommodate her because I absolutely love studio sessions!

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - BreChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - BreChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre The day of the session arrived, and the mom-to-be showed up with excitement in her eyes, ready to capture this wonderful chapter in their lives. As is often the case, I anticipated some reluctance from soon-to-be dads or dads in general when it comes to taking photos. Many times, they agree to it just to please the moms. However, I was determined to find a way to entice the dad to enjoy himself during the session. Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - BreChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - BreChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre With some creative thinking, I managed to make the experience fun for the dad, resulting in incredible images that were intimate and special to mom and dad alone. It's always a joy for me to see dads fully engaged and enjoying themselves during these sessions. It adds a beautiful dynamic to the photos and captures the genuine connection and excitement between the couple.

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - BreChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - BreChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre Throughout the session, I emphasized to the parents-to-be, as well as all my clients, the importance of genuinely enjoying the process and the experience. I firmly believe that the joy and enthusiasm during a photoshoot contribute greatly to the final outcome. It's not just about the poses and smiles; it's about capturing the emotion and creating lasting moments.

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert The importance of booking maternity and newborn sessions in a timely manner is crucial for moms' comfort and not missing out on the opportunity. Maternity sessions are best done between 26-33 weeks along when the baby bump is beautifully round and glowing. And when it comes to newborn sessions, capturing those precious early moments within the first three weeks after delivery ensures the freshness and innocence of the newborn stage.

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Bre So, if you're expecting or know someone who is, I highly encourage you not to wait to book your maternity and newborn sessions. Embrace the experience, celebrate this incredible journey into parenthood, and allow me to capture the love, joy, and anticipation that surrounds this special time in your lives. The resulting photographs will be treasured memories that you can cherish for a lifetime.

In the midst of uncertain weather conditions and the smoky air caused by the raging Canadian wildfires, we had an incredible outdoor maternity session, capturing the beauty and radiance of a mother eagerly awaiting the arrival of her little one. The lack of golden hour may not have been what they initially planned, but the love and joy that filled the atmosphere made it a truly memorable experience.

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - SwatiChicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Swati I have a few favorite spots in mind to showcase at this location however, nature had another surprise in store, as an overabundance of geese and their adorable hatchlings had taken over those spots. Despite the change of plans, the session went on, with the geese adding a unique touch of wildlife charm to the portraits. Even though both mom and I were scared they'd attack us! 

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Swati Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Swati Amidst the smoky haze, the love and anticipation between the couples shone through every captured moment.

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Swati -21 copy 2Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Swati -21 copy 2 Booking maternity and newborn sessions in advance together has its advantages. While the availability of preferred locations and favorable weather conditions may be uncertain, securing a session early ensures that these precious moments are captured professionally and beautifully if the need to schedule arrives. By avoiding the gamble of availability after a baby is born, expecting parents can enjoy peace of mind and have a keepsake of this special time that they can cherish for years to come. It's an investment in capturing the love, anticipation, and joy that surrounds the journey into parenthood. Inquire about the financial benefit of booking both sessions together.

What a joy it was to have this beautiful family back in the studio for a newborn session with their adorable second son, Mason!

It's incredible to see how their family has grown and how Max has embraced his role as a loving big brother.

In the world of maternity photography, every session is an opportunity to celebrate the strength, beauty, and unique journey of an expectant mother. I had the honor of photographing a truly inspiring mom-to-be. This extraordinary woman, a former military mom and aspiring law enforcement officer radiated resilience and grace. What was anticipated to be a scorching hot day turned into a cool 50-degree day with no sun in sight. However, challenges are often the catalysts for creativity. Despite unexpected weather conditions, we had a memorable session that showcased her inner and outer strength. 

Chicago Outdoor Maternity Photographer Alina Renert Chicago Outdoor Maternity Photographer Alina Renert Throughout the session, the mom-to-be exuded an aura of strength and beauty that was truly awe-inspiring. My goal was to capture not just her physical beauty but also the inner strength that made her journey so remarkable. 

Mom-to-be brought along her supportive and hilarious friend. This turned out to be a game-changer. The atmosphere was filled with laughter and joy. Her witty comments and infectious sense of humor created a lighthearted environment, easing any nerves the mom-to-be may have had. The presence of this amazing friend not only helped the mom-to-be to laugh and relax but also added an extra layer of connection and warmth to the photographs, capturing a truly memorable and authentic experience.

I had the pleasure of capturing a milestone session for an adorable soon-to-be 5-year-old, Julia. What made this session particularly special was that Julia's mother has been a client since her pregnancy days. Every year, I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to see how much Julia has grown and capture her unique personality and milestones. It's a joyous journey to witness her transformation from a tiny baby into a beautiful and vibrant young girl.

Chicago Childrens Photographer Alina Renert - Julia-88 copyChicago Childrens Photographer Alina Renert - Julia-88 copy Chicago Childrens Photographer Alina Renert - Julia-87 copyChicago Childrens Photographer Alina Renert - Julia-87 copy Julia arrived at the session with her hair stylishly done and an array of stunning outfits that perfectly showcased her vibrant personality. As a photographer, I always strive to create a fun and enjoyable atmosphere, encouraging children to be themselves and allowing their true personalities to shine through. Julia was no exception, and her session was filled with both silly and heartwarming moments that perfectly captured her playful and joyful spirit.

What makes these Birthday milestone sessions so special is the ability to freeze their current personality in time, allowing parents to look back and treasure the memories of their child's journey.  These milestone sessions serve as a visual reminder of the passing years and the precious moments that make up childhood.

Julia's session was no exception, as we laughed, played, and captured moments that beautifully reflected her unique spirit and the love she shares with her family.

It's truly been a privilege of witnessing Julia's growth and capturing her milestones over the years. It's a heartwarming journey to see how much she has grown and evolved, and I am grateful to be a part of documenting her beautiful personality through these milestone sessions. I look forward to continuing this photographic journey with Julia and her family, capturing more cherished memories as she continues to bloom and thrive.

There is nothing quite as precious and heartwarming as a sweet newborn baby. Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting little Charlie and capturing so many adorable moments during a newborn session. What a joy to be a part of this beautiful family's journey and witness the love and excitement that filled the room.

Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Charlie Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert - Charlie Thanks to Charlie's grandmother, who had thoughtfully gifted the newborn session to Mom and Dad, what an incredible gift. Newborn photography sessions are my most expensive packages. When considering a gift for an expectant mother, a newborn photography session gift certificate is a thoughtful and lasting choice. It goes beyond traditional baby shower gifts and offers an experience that will be cherished for a lifetime. By gifting this special session, you provide parents with the opportunity to capture their baby's unique personality and create a collection of photographs that will forever hold a special place in their hearts. 

From the moment Mom & Dad arrived, it was evident that Charlie's parents were overjoyed with their little bundle of joy. We included more personal touches, like with all my sessions. Mom mentioned Dad LOVES Baseball, so they brought in his glove, as well as me having some newborn-size props, and of course when Mom mentioned a little sheep would be adorable, I included that as well!

I try and make each session unique in its own way and personalized towards each family. 

I'm always reminded of the profound joy and happiness that newborns bring into our lives. 

Don't wait to schedule your newborn session AFTER delivery, the best time to schedule it is in your third trimester to guarantee availability. Next Baby Shower, consider the gift of lasting memories with a gift certificate for the expecting Mom and Dad.

As a professional photographer specializing in maternity sessions, I have had the pleasure of capturing countless moments of radiant expectant mothers. Each session is a celebration of the beauty, strength, and anticipation that comes with pregnancy. One thing I've learned over the years is that while inspirational images can serve as a starting point, they shouldn't dictate the entire session. Let us explore why it's essential to go beyond copying inspiration images and embrace the unique beauty of each couple or mom in front of the camera. I'll highlight the advantages of choosing a studio maternity session. 

While inspirational images can be a valuable reference, it's important to remember that they represent someone else's journey and unique features. Every person is different, and it's the diversity of shapes, sizes, and personal styles that make each maternity session so special. As YOUR photographer, my goal is not to create a carbon copy of an inspiration image but to capture the individuality and essence of the couple or mom in front of me. By embracing their unique beauty, we create images that truly reflect their journey and create treasured memories that they will cherish forever.

The first image is the inspirational image Mom brought in. It's beautiful and we loved it...but, 

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Elise-44 copy 2Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Elise-44 copy 2 This second image showcases the love, excitement, and adoration soon-to-be Dad has along with showcasing Moms stunning bump. *Mom chose my post vs the image she brought in for me. 

Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Elise-51 copy 2Chicago Maternity Photographer Alina Renert - Elise-51 copy 2 Inspiration images can play a valuable role in guiding the creative direction of a session. They provide a starting point for discussions and help me understand the couple's preferences and desires. By considering their inspiration, we can tailor the session to their specific vision while still maintaining the authenticity that makes each session unique. It's about incorporating elements that resonate with the couple or mom.

One of the many advantages of opting for a studio boudoir maternity session is the controlled environment it offers. Unlike outdoor sessions, which can be affected by unpredictable weather, insects, or uncomfortable temperatures, a studio provides a serene and comfortable setting for capturing intimate moments. The focus remains solely on the couple or mom, allowing them to relax, unwind, and embrace the beauty of their pregnancy journey. Moreover, the studio provides backdrops, and lighting techniques, allowing for endless creative possibilities and ensuring a fun and enjoyable experience for all involved.

A studio boudoir maternity session provides a perfect backdrop for celebrating your unique journey into motherhood. Whether it's the soft lighting, elegant drapery, or artistic poses, the studio environment allows me to highlight the natural beauty of expectant mothers while creating a sense of intimacy and elegance. It's a space where you can feel empowered, confident, and truly shine, embracing your journey with grace and style.

So let's embrace your unique beauty, celebrate this extraordinary time, and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert

Meet Miss Ellie!! Sweetest little squish I finally was able to hold, snuggle, and photograph. With this current Pandemic of Covid19, we were afraid we wouldn't even be allowed to do photography yet and miss out on the chance to capture Ellies' newborn photos. She was just a little over a month old, and still very squishy, and posable. She didn't sleep the entire time like a week old might have, but I've had several one-two week old babies who didn't sleep a wink either. I always try to remind parents that as much as many photographers have instilled that newborn sessions HAVE to be done under two weeks old, that's not entirely true though. I've had successful sessions of full-term newborns at 6-8weeks old with having them sleep. It also has happened on more than one occasion where a newborn under 2-3weeks old refused to sleep altogether. Much of newborn photography is personality-based, these tiny little babies have super strong personalities :) 

Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert Ellie was a dream to work with!! She didn't sleep the entire time but had amazing eye contact and that's definitely not something that most one-two week old newborns are able to do successfully. She was able to sleep soundly while wrapped and even zonked out at the end of the session and allowed me to pose her in a more traditional studio posed photography matter and ROCKED it!!! 

 

I've been working with Mom Tracy since she was expecting her first, Eden, all through Eden's first birthday and recently for Easter photos this year even. Ellie looks so much like her older sister and both such beautiful girls!

I cannot wait to continue to watch them both grow and blossom <3

Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography

I've been working with this wonderful family since before Emma was born, every session has been fun and beautiful in their own way. When Mark was born, we did our first Lifestyle session which turned out so beautiful and natural. We were able to get adorable photos of Emma and Mark together during Valentine's Day minis too!! Unfortunately, due to current events, we missed Marks actual first birthday session. We opted for a Porch/Neighborhood session and used the family backyard as well. 

Emma is such a little model, smiling big and bright and loving posing for the camera now! Mark, OMG!! His sweet curls that everything, the way that curl fall in the front had me swooning <3 

These are the types of sessions that are my favorite, of course, I give some direction in terms of posing/interaction but I love to capture the moments that are real reactions, emotions, and love.  Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography Chicago Outdoor Family Photographer - Anna F-115Chicago Outdoor Family Photographer - Anna F-115 Chicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert PhotographyChicago, IL Photographer - Alina Renert Photography

Chicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & JessChicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & Jess

It was so amazing to work with Sophie, Jess, Lily, and Penny their two Yorkies! When I originally spoke with Sophie and explained my vision of what I wanted to capture, I know that Jess was a tad nervous of my word ''intimate". To me intimacy isn't just physical, it's the emotion you feel around someone and that's what I'm aiming to capture with these couples sessions. 
Chicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & JessChicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & Jess
You fell in love for a reason, whether it was a month ago or 20 years ago. You fell in love. Your love is one of a kind, your quirks, humor, and emotion are like no one else's. Let us capture that!! If you're in a new relationship and you still have those butterflies every time you hold hands, kiss or embrace that's amazing! You've been in a long time relationship, you're comfortable with one another, your relationship and your love. You're newly engaged and you're smitten and excited for the new chapter that lays ahead! You're married (whether a year or 20), sometimes the day to day life of work, errands, simply adulting takes a toll on the relationship and we don't get to spend that one on one time with our loved one, especially after littles come. These would be a rekindle our love type session, remembering why you fell in love in the first place, recapturing your special unique relationship. We can be in your home to capture your day to day morning or I'll join you on your favorite activity out and about as you have a great time. These are meant to be documentary style, raw, authentic and to remind you how lucky you are to be with your significant other 

Chicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & JessChicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & Jess

During our session, I asked Sophie and Jess to be themselves, they'd ask me for direction and I'd keep telling them to do what's natural to them and their relationship. Of course, I'd give them prompts here and there to evoke a certain emotion, a laugh or a moment. 
Chicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & JessChicago Couples Lifestyle Photographer Alina Renert - Sophie & Jess
I'm so utterly in love with how these turned out, I left their home so inspired and happy for genuine love!! 


Sophie being an amazing photographer herself it's always somewhat nerve-wracking to do their photos, but it was so much fun working with them both. 

Here's a little recap into the session and their love story <3 

How they met: Jess and I met at yoga. We both did “yoga for trade” which is where you cleaned the studio for 3 hours a week in exchange for a yoga membership. The first time I saw Jess was when she was coming for a class. I noticed her bright smile and eyes and thought she was just super cool. I got little butterflies every time I saw her but didn’t exactly realize what I was feeling until later. I had thrown a few compliments her way which I guess was me flirting. The story we tell everyone is that as she was leaving the studio one day I said, “I like your shirt!” and she didn’t hear me, so I sarcastically said, “or not…” and she turned around and was like “oh you were talking to me? Thanks.” And she left. I complimented her hair and nice tan as well before. I’m clearly super slick. Anyways, for whatever reason, I decided to be the biggest creep and look for Jess’ name on the yoga for trade sign up sheet so I could add her on facebook like the weirdo I am. She accepted, made a status about wanting tacos, and I took the bait, commented I love tacos, and we got tacos. We always joke how neither of us is the type of person who would go eat tacos with a random person we had just met, just the two of us. I guess it was our first date! Since Jess is the first girl I’d ever been with, my feelings weren’t clear to me until we hung out at her apartment once. The rest is history! 

 
How long they've been together: We’ve been together for 4 years this September!! 
 
Who said I love you first: I think I told Jess I loved her after 2 weeks of dating. LOL psychoooo
 
What did you think the session would be like vs how it was: I thought the session was pretty much what I thought it would be like! I am kind of a cheater since I’m a photographer!
 
Did you have any reservations prior to the session: No real reservations, Jess didn’t want to be naked. LOL (per my use of the word "intimate") 
 
Did you guys have fun: We had so much fun, and I felt like everyone should do it with their significant other! It kind of helps you go back to the beginning and be lovey dovey!
 
Looking at the finished images, are they a good representation of your love and relationship: They are so beautiful and definitely capture us very well!! Thank you so much Alina, you were so easy to work with, made us feel comfortable, and made us laugh a lot!!

I wasn't sure how to phrase this blogpost  - Anna is my best friend and my heart still breaks their for loss...what a strange word...loss. I don't think my words can do this session justice, so  I asked Anna to write in her own words. 

Rainbow Maternity ll Chicago Outdoor Family Maternity Photographer Alina RenertRainbow Maternity ll Chicago Outdoor Family Maternity Photographer Alina Renert

"Pregnancy after loss. It’s hard to put into words the pain, the fear, the hope. I tried to detach myself for so long so that if “it” happened again it might hurt less. After all, wouldn’t it have been easier if we didn’t find out their gender, didn’t name them, didn’t fall in love with them? The truth is, I loved them as soon as I saw the second line on the pregnancy test and it was no different this time.  I spent half of this pregnancy withdrawn from the world, a giant ball of anxiety in my stomach. I tried to wrap myself in a bubble. I moved as little as humanly possible. I wouldn’t go in a pool. I could not afford to do anything that I did last time. I held my breath until we reached 24 weeks; random some would say, but in the loss community very well known as “viability day”. This is when I started to breathe again. Feeling baby Benjamin moving inside of me has been such a gift. It has restored a piece of my heart. We recently “celebrated” Noah and Nathan’s first birthday. They are not with us, but they have taught us. Terrible things happen. We survived. We yelled. We grieved. We fell down the deepest pit. And we climbed out together, as a family. Children shouldn’t have to lose their siblings. Children shouldn’t have to question whether this baby will come home with us. But ours do. But they also think of their brothers, say their names, cry for them. If there’s anything I wish people understood, it’s that the scar of their loss is permanent. It won’t be erased by Benny. It won’t be erased by time. Their loss is a defining point of our lives. It has fundamentally changed us. We will miss them forever. We will love them forever. As I write this, at 36 weeks and 3 days, I am huge and uncomfortable and so incredibly grateful.  I cannot wait to hold this sweet, little guy in my arms. And I cannot wait for our family to be complete when we become a family of eight, even if you can’t see two of us." 

Rainbow Maternity ll Chicago Outdoor Family Maternity Photographer Alina RenertRainbow Maternity ll Chicago Outdoor Family Maternity Photographer Alina Renert

Q&A with Mama to be: 

1. Did you have reservations about doing this maternity session? 

Absolutely! I felt like anything I did to celebrate this pregnancy would jinx it somehow. 

2. What finally prompted you to go forward with the session? Are you happy you did? 

I had to wait until we were at a gestation where if something happened, I knew we at least had a chance. Plus some gentle nudging. I am so happy we did. It was a very cathartic experience and I felt such a weight lifted by being able to mourn the twins and celebrate Benny at the same time. 

3. What advice do you have for moms struggling with the decision of going through with sessions after a loss? 

Do whatever you’re comfortable with. Nobody is on YOUR journey except for you. Do what you need to heal. 

 

4. Having been your first ''real'' maternity session - was it what you expected?? 

It’s a lot of work! I went in to it very open minded because I trust you 500% and that was perfect. The session and photos exceeded my expectations and I was able to relinquish control and just be there in the moment.

It was such a pleasure meeting and working with Rachel and Joe. I was originally contacted by Rachel's mom to arrange their session as a gift, how utterly sweet of Grandma to be so involved and help out during what is a stressful time for most with all the arrangements that go along with expecting.

Just so happened the night before, Rachel MUA had a family emergency to tend to and on short notice, I was able to recommend Makeup by Lauren. She did an amazing job as always and Rachel glowed! 


Joe and she were both so easy and wonderful to work with, taking direction with such ease and grace. 

Sad we weren't able to step outside for a few as the weather was actually in the high 40's that day, but all the snow was melting into dirty mush :(


Wishing this wonderful growing family the best of luck on with their soon sweet baby boy and to see them again soon!

Top 21 Chicago Best Newborn Photographer - Alina Renert Photography https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2019/2/top-21-chicago-best-newborn-photographer---alina-renert-photography Top Chicago Newborn Photographer 2019

 

I didn't get the email this year but, once again, I'm so honored to be chosen as one of the TOP Chicago Newborn Photographer by Expertise.com. This is now the 4th year at the top and I couldn't be happier and prouder where my work has come! 

I'm always learning, adapting and experimenting to give my clients the best possible experience, in a safe, comfortable and enjoyable environment. 

Top 21 Best Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina RenertTop 21 Best Chicago Newborn Photographer Alina Renert

The site looked over 998 (WOW) local Chicago Newborn Photographers and selected the TOP 21 based on: 
 

Reputation: A history of delighted customers and outstanding service. 

Credibility: Building customer confidence with licensing, accreditations, and awards

Experience: Masters of their craft, based on years of practical experience and education

Availability: Consistently approachable and responsive, so customers never feel ignored

Experience: Providing service with honesty, reliability, and respect

This year is going to be amazing and capturing growing families is where my heart truly is. Schedule your maternity and newborn sessions ahead of time. The year fills up quickly and I'd hate for you to miss your chance. 

It's best to have your maternity session booked by 22 weeks and we generally do the session as early as 26-33wks (I prefer to have my moms semi comfortable still and be able to still walk, especially for outdoor sessions). 

It's best to have your newborn session booked prior to the arrival of your bundle of joy, once your sweetie is here things get a little hectic and the last thing you want to do is search for a photographer with last minute availability. Newborn sessions typically take place in the first 3 weeks of life, while your baby is still in the sleepy newborn stages, not so susceptible to sound and touch.

Eden l Chicago Studio Milk Bath Session with Alina Renert Photography https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2019/2/eden-l-chicago-studio-milk-bath-session-with-alina-renert-photography First Birthday Baby Milk Bath

  Chicago Baby Milk Bath Session with Photographer Alina Renert - Eden-6 copyChicago Baby Milk Bath Session with Photographer Alina Renert - Eden-6 copy
I simply cannot get enough of miss Eden!! I've been working with her family since she was still in mama's belly and I adore them all.

When Eden came to me for her newborn session, poor sweetie had a dislocated arm and was in a sling so we had to adjust how we posed, worked, the props we used and outfits that would work to seamlessly adjust to give mommy and daddy as close to newborn posing as possible given the setback.

I saw miss Eden again for her six month sitting milestone and her first birthday cake smash. So when her mommy told me she really wanted to celebrate the milestone of weaning Eden off of breast milk with a milk bath session, I was all for it! Eden simply loved it! she splashed around in the tub, flashed me her adorable contagious smile and won my heart all over once again. 

Milk bath session like these are so much fun! I also offer the option of a bubble bath after cake smashes (or any favorite food smash at the first year milestone session).

Hybrid Indoor First Birthday Cake Smash & Outdoor Family Photographer

 

Karim turned one!! It's been a whirlwind of a year full of adventures, I was so excited when I originally met his mommy and daddy for their maternity session last spring. We had decided to do a hybrid studio cake smash and an outdoor family session later in the summer. Only things kept pushing back and further back and we didn't get to do the family photos until Fall!! :O Needless to say, they turned out gorgeous even though our original plans were for beach photos. Karim's first birthday theme was Mickey Mouse and not only that but, shortly after the session he traveled to World Disney World for the first time to celebrate with mommy and daddy! 

Sessions like these, where we're able to capture studio portraits and outdoor family photos is the best of both worlds. Especially during the cold months, since I do not recommend for kids under 2 yrs old to do outdoor photos unless they're themed, ie: sledding as a family activity just as an example. Many don't know, but I do offer Holiday Setups in the studio during the cold months for family/baby sessions. I'll have sneak peeks to show of some different setups soon :)

Camila ll Chicago Newborn Baby Girl Studio Session with Alina Renert Photography https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2018/11/camila-ll-chicago-newborn-baby-girl-photographer-alina-renert Sweet Newborn Baby Camila 

Words cannot express the adoration I have for this family! I'm known mom since High School days and dad since their engagement session (way back in the day!) Mom has also helped me out several times with a fun dance project I took on a few years back and till this day are some of my favorite shots captured. We've done maternity photos, newborn, milestones, family, and now baby Camila joins this beautiful family :)

Of course we chatted for months leading to the session about how to make it special, personal and relative. Mama owns the Rhythmic Gymnastics studio, located in Buffalo Grove, IL so we thought it'd be super cute to incorporate a photo to represent that passion. When we did Nicholas's newborn photos, we did a basketball setup for Daddy's love of the sport and decided to have a similar setup with baby sister as well. I just love how it turned out! 

Camila was so perfectly squishy, sweet and posed simply amazingly! I'm so thrilled for mom and dad with their sweet her addition :) Seeing posted videos and photos of how much Nicholas loves his baby sister is so heartwarming, he's such a great big brother already!

Sabrina- Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/5/sabrina--chicago-studio-newborn-photographer  

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 https://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 https://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 https://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 https://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 https://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!!

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!

Oh little Jonah!! You're a gem and the apple of mama and papa's eye! I've been friends with his mama since I was roughly nine years old and she's my first and longest friendship since coming to America. 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 :)

Layla - Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2017/3/layla-chicago-newborn-photographer  

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 https://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 https://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 https://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.

Yana - Chicago Lifestyle Maternity Photographer https://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 https://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 https://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 https://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!

Jazlynn | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/6/jazlynn-chicago-newborn-photographer  

"In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess." - N.K. Jemison

Gorgeous Jazlynn recently came to my studio with two goddesses, her mother and grandmother. These three generations of beauty were such a pleasure to work with during Jazlynn's newborn session. If you remember Gabriela's maternity session, she was stunning in every maternity gown. I was thrilled when she was eager to put on one of the gowns for some gorgeous images with her new baby. 

Gabriela's mother, and Jazlynn's grandmother, was there for Gabriela during her maternity session so I was happy to get her in front of the camera during Jazlynn's newborn session. I love to include grandparents if they are alrady attending a newborn session because their relationship is so special. To be able to document it from the beginning is a true gift. The three generations portraits are always some of my favorites from these sessions.

Jazlynn was so good for me during her session. She is just perfectly squishy with round cheeks and sweet rolls. With a head full of dark hair and delicate features, she is just as stunning as her mama and grandma! I loved snuggling and soothing Jazlynn, and her session reconfirmed for me that newborn photography is the type of photography that I was meant to do. The skill and dedication that goes into learning newborn photography is worth every snuggle with these little miracles. The newborn stage of life is fleeting, and over in the blink of the eye. To be able to capture these moments for my clients is such a gift.

Ayva Kate | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/ayva-chicago-newborn-photographer "She is everything that is perfect wrapped in a tiny bundle." - Bon Johnstone

Beautiful little Ayva was the perfect newborn at six days new. She slept like a dream and she eased into every pose effortlessly. Her daddy assisted me with the potato sack pose, and did a great job! I often enlist the help of dads during certain poses (if my assistant isn't available). It helps me, keeps the little love safe, and it gives dads a special hands-on job with their baby. So much of the newborn stage and bonding is in the mama's hands, especially if she is nursing. Including dads during my sessions is always a fun treat for everyone! 

Ayva looked absolutely amazing on a purple backdrop! I love how the purple and yellow pastel tones look together. It feels like Spring, and it makes me happy! Ayva loved being all curled up, and was one of the easiest newborns to pose. She has the best back rolls, and her little tushy up pose was perfect! I was even lucky enough to capture a couple of sweet little smiles! She also did great for the Dream Catcher prop, as it's one of the tougher props, it requires a super sleepy newborn for safety (this prop is always done as a composite, baby is never hanging in the air). 

I just loved snuggling Ayva. She stole my heart! I am so happy with how her gallery came out, and I hope her family is too! Thank you Sofiya and Leon for bringing in your precious Ayva! Congratulations on becoming a family of three!

Oana | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/oana-chicago-maternity-photographer "Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."

Oana, Mihai and Briana are waiting to meet a new member of their family, and they are so excited. We had a beautiful evening the night of Oana's maternity session. The lighting was gorgeous, and it was the perfect time for a session and some fun!

We started the session with some family images. Briana was so sweet with her mama, and is so excited to become a big sister! I love maternity sessions with an older sibling. The images of a pregnant mama with her first baby are always so sweet. After we completed the family portion, Briana had a great time playing and running with her daddy while I focused on Oana. They even met a deer family!

Oana is a gorgeous mama-to-be and is a natural in front of the camera. All the gowns hugged her beautiful baby bump perfectly! As I prepare for a maternity session with my clients, I always let them know that they may be a little sore in their legs and back the day after their maternity session. Many of my maternity clients put away their heels long before their session, so they may work some different muscles than normal after wearing heels during their session!

Oana did amazing during her session in heels, and looked beautiful. We took several breaks to make sure she stayed hydrated! Changing in and out of some of the maternity gowns is no easy feat when you are 7 to 8 months pregnant! The results are so worth it though when you get a gorgeous maternity gallery like Oana's! Thank you for spending a beautiful evening with me Oana, Mihai and Briana!

Kosta | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/kosta-chicago-newborn-photographer "The world is but a canvas to the imagination." - Henry David Thoreau

As a photographer, I am always learning and always experimenting with new techniques, new poses, or new colors. I am lucky enough to have clients who trust me and my vision, and who take it in stride when I call them up the night before their session to ask them to bring a rather large "prop."

That is exactly what I did the night before sweet Kosta's newborn session. You may remember from Jenny's maternity session the beautiful nursery that she and Paul created for Kosta. It is a nursery fit for a little prince, and is adorned with crowns, elephants and soft tones. I contacted Jenny and Paul the night before and asked them to bring the elephant rocker from Kosta's nursery to the studio the next day - I had an idea. 

The day of his session, Kosta was just perfect for me. I started his session with the elephant rocker. It is important to explain how we were able to capture this image. Safety is always my top priority. For any image where baby's head is lifted from the beanbag, or any image where baby is on or in a prop (such as the elephant rocker or soccer ball), there is always a hand gently placed on him to hold him safely in place. These images are composites, and Kosta was always safely held. These are poses that should only be done by a trained newborn photographer.

I love how the image turned out, and I can just picture it being displayed in Kosta's nursery. Kosta was a dream during his solo part of the session. He woke up for the family images, and had a couple of accidents! I always warn my clients that this is completely normal and to be expected during newborn sessions. I take accidents as they come, but many new parents are not expecting it! I always suggest a change of clothes for the parents, just in case! With a newborn and no diaper, you just never know when an accident will happen!

I love how Kosta's gallery turned out, and I hope that Jenny and Paul do as well! Thank you so much for making me a part of your pregnancy and new adventure into parenthood!

Kosta is so sweet! Congratulations!

Rushil | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/rushil-chicago-newborn-photographer "The love in our family flows strong and deep,

leaving us memories to treasure and keep."

Varsha contacted me in November to schedule her newborn session for her first baby, due at the end of April. Varsha told me that they were going to wait to find out the gender, and she was so excited to meet her little one and to book a newborn session. As her due date was approaching, Varsha told me that their newborn session was a birthday gift for her 40th birthday! Such a wonderful and thoughtful gift for a new parent!

Varsha and Hersh welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Rushil! We rescheduled from our originally scheduled date so that Varsha and Rushil could work with a lactation consultant because Rushil was having some latching difficulties. I am always try to be flexible with newborn scheduling because nothing is predictable when it comes to brand new babies. Mastering nursing as early as possible is so important for baby and mama. Rushil's session ended up being rescheduled for Varsha's actual birthday, and it was such a great session! Rushil was a little gem, and even flashed me his adorable smile a few times! Hersh was back to work, but joined us during his lunch break so that we could get some family portraits.

Rushil's grandfather came along for the session. I love grandpas, and Rushil's was no exception. He just glowed with love, pride and happiness every time he held Rushil! Of course, I had to get images of Rushil with his grandpa and Varsha with her father and her new baby. I love how they turned out, and am sure that they are images the family will treasure forever!

I am so thrilled with how Rushil's gallery came out. I am also so excited for this new family of three!

Thank you so much Varsha and Hersh for bringing your sweet Rushil in for his newborn session! He is perfect!

Nickolas | 1 Year | Chicago Baby Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/nicholas-1-year-chicago-baby-photographer
"Young boys should never be sent to bed. They always wake up a day older." - J.M. Barrie


I can't believe sweet Nickolas is already one! I have known his mama, Valery, since we were in high school. I captured her engagement session and maternity session. I photographed sweet Nickolas as a newborn, and now as a one year old. I love being a part of their life, and documenting all of their milestones.

I have my clients do a little prep work before a cake smash session. After all, most babies have not yet had the sugary goodness of sweets before their birthday. It is unfamiliar, and can come as a little bit of a shock to them! Valery followed my instructions, and gave Nickolas a little taste of a cupcake the night before! Nickolas seems to have a sweet tooth because he loved it instantly. We knew that cake would be just as good!

I wanted to try and get some portraits of Nicholas before he was covered in cake, but he was not having it! He did not like the bucket, or the bowl, or the basket. But cake? He LOVED cake! He is a very serious cake lover though. Despite Valery's best attempts, we didn't get a lot of smiles. Nickolas was on a mission. A mission to eat cake. I did manage to capture a couple of giggles though, and he is an excellent cake smasher!

I cannot believe how much Nickolas has grown this year, or how fast it went. He is such a sweet boy, who is growing way too fast!

Happy Birthday Nickolas, you are so loved!

Nicole | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/nicole-chicago-maternity-photographer "Spring is when life's alive in everything." - Christina Rossetti

Spring is beautiful, and always a welcome change from Winter. It is also unpredictable, especially for a photographer. Nicole is a busy entrepreneur along with expecting her second baby. We were able to coordinate our schedules for her maternity session, planned on April 1st. However, Mother Nature had different plans for us that day and we were rained out. We were also rained out on our rain date! By the time we were able to do Nicole's session, she was already 37 weeks pregnant.

When I schedule maternity sessions for my clients, I try not to schedule them this late in pregnancy. For starters, as you approach the 37 week mark, you run the chance of the momma-to-be going into labor before we have the session! Another reason is that a maternity session in the very last stretch of pregnancy can be hard on the momma-to-be. It becomes more difficult to stand and walk for longer periods of time as you get closer to the end of your pregnancy. I want maternity sessions to be enjoyable for my clients, so I do try to schedule them before the 37th week.

Nicole, however, was such a trooper. You would never guess that she was 37 weeks pregnant! I am so glad we were rained out the first two evenings because the lighting and sky was amazing the night we had the session! A gorgeous, warm glow poured all over Nicole and her beautiful bump. It was the perfect "accessory" with every one of the gowns, and Nicole was just stunning in every one. It was a wonderful outdoor maternity session that even included a visit (and photobomb) from some deer!

Thank you Nicole for being so great! I am just in love with the images we were able to capture of you as you awaited the arrival of your new love! 

**Since the session, her handsome baby boy was already home and how happily enjoying his momma, papa and older brother's love.

Mark | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/mark-chicago-newborn-photographer "A fabulous friendship multiplies the good in life." - Unknown

Karina is a gorgeous mama to three boys now, and she has some amazing friends. Two of her good friends called me and purchased a gift certificate for Karina to use to bring her new baby boy in for a newborn session! They wanted to make sure that Karina would forever have this precious time preserved through the images. I would say that Karina has the best of friends to think of such a meaningful gift!

Karina came to the studio with just her new love, Mark. It was a wonderful, quiet session. Karina was able to sit back and relax, and just watch Mark as I posed him in all the sweet little poses! I am sure moments to sit back and relax are few and far between when you are a mama of three boys, so I am so glad Karina was able to enjoy this time. Mark was just perfect for me. He is such a handsome little man, and I was even able to capture a bit of his tiny little personality when he showed me his eyes!  Even though he was awake, he was so calm. Being able to pose him in the potato sack and froggy pose while awake created the sweetest images!

I am so happy with how Mark's gallery turned out. So many beautiful images. I have to say, however, that my favorites are the images of Mark with his beautiful mama. They just make my heart so full! There is nothing like a new mama with her precious newborn.

I offer gift certificates for all occasions, or no occasion at all! If there is someone in your life that you would like to gift a session to, contact me and I will help you pick the best option! Karina, I am so glad you have the most thoughtful of friends and got to be pampered and relax for Mark's session! He is just perfect!

Sam | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/sam-chicago-newborn-photographer "All the best heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary."

- Gerard Way

Baby Sam joins a family of superheroes. His mommy and daddy are both doctors, rescuing their patients from the evil forces of allergies. 

Amy and Alex are completely and totally in love with their new little superhero, Sam. I can see why because Sam was an absolute dream to work with during his session. He was perfectly sleepy, and transitioned from pose to pose with ease. I found out that Alex is a huge comic book fan, so of course I showed him my Superman outfit! It was the perfect look for Sam, and I think he looks a lot like his daddy in it!

This new family of three has so much love between them, and I was thrilled they chose me to capture it. Thank you Amy and Alex, Sam is just perfect!

Ashika & Ari | Hybrid Maternity | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/5/ashika-ari-hybrid-maternity-chicago-maternity-photographer "When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life." - Unknown

There was no shortage of laughs during Ashika and Ari's maternity session. They are a wonderfully fun couple, and their session was a great time for all of us! I first met Ashika and Ari back in March when they visited the studio before booking their maternity and newborn sessions. Ashika loved being able to see the selection of maternity gowns in person, and they both were excited looking through all of my newborn props and accessories. 

Ashika and Ari knew that they wanted both outdoor and studio maternity portraits, so my hybrid session was the best choice for them. I love hybrid sessions of any kind because it gives my clients not only the best of two worlds (in this case outdoor and studio), but also a gallery with so much variety. The day of their session, I met Ashika and Ari at a nearby forest preserve. It was a beautiful and sunny day, and even semi-warm for the season we have had this year. Ari was a great assistant to me, and easily brought out Ashika's natural smile.

These two have such a beautiful love for each other. It was heartwarming to watch them together with nothing else to do besides be together in the moment. When we got back to the studio, Ashika was able to relax some because there was no more walking involved! She chose several gorgeous gowns that made her look and feel like a goddess! Ashika also had a couple requests for setups a little outside my normal workflow but I was up for the challenge! I love how they both turned out. Can you spot which images they are?

Ashika and Ari, thank you so much for letting me be a part of the beautiful life you are creating. I cannot wait to see you again with your new little sweet pea in tow!

The Boyko Family | Chicago Family Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/4/boyko-family-chicago-family-photographer "Family is not an important thing, it's everything." - Michael J. Fox

Irina contacted looking for a last minute family session, and was pleased when I offered a hybrid lifestyle session since it can still be cold in April (little did we know!) I was so happy that I was able to make a few adjustments to my schedule to get them in. I love hybrid lifestyle sessions of any type because they incorporate the best of everything. I am able to get more traditional portraits, plus I am able to capture my clients in their own environment. Family hybrid lifestyle sessions are so much fun because we are able to capture your family doing the family activities you love best!

The weather on the day of this session was completely unpredictable. It started sunny and clear though cold (the high was  for 30 degrees). As I was driving to the session, it was snowing so hard that I couldn't see more than 5 feet in front of me! Luckily, that was over quickly and we had sunny, clear skies again to get some outdoor portraits of the children and the family. Followed by a sudden temperature drop and blizzard conditions again! Throw in some more sun, hail, sun and thunderstorms, and the whole day was just strange weather wise.

Indoors, however, was toasty warm and Irina made hot cocoa for Oleg, Ryaan and Phillip! Irina and Oleg are amazing parents, and are raising some great kids. There is so much love and fun in their family, and I think their hybrid lifestyle gallery really highlights those two things.

We all had so much fun during the Boyko's session. Hot cocoa, chess, billiards, and jumping on the beds! Can it get any better than that? Thank you for inviting me into your home. I hope you love your gallery as much as I do!

Gabriela | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/4/gabriela-chicago-maternity-photographer "Beauty is radiance that originates from within and comes from

inner security and strong character." - Jane Seymour

Gabriela radiates confidence, grace and beauty. Her mother, Megan, gifted Gabriela with her maternity and newborn sessions so that all the beauty of this time in her life could be captured. I cannot think of a more thoughtful, and wonderful, gift. It is obvious who Gabriela gets her inner and outer beauty from - her mother. Megan came to Gabriela's maternity session and was such an amazing source of support and encouragement for Gabriela. Megan is in absolute awe at the sight of her beautiful daughter as she awaits the arrival of her own daughter. Gabriela is a natural in front of the camera, and is poised with confidence and grace.

Of course, when it is just three women in the studio, we had to have some fun picking and changing gowns for Gabriela. She was just stunning in every gown she put on. Gabriela's smile is a perfect reflection of her sweet nature. She is so in love with and excited to meet her precious baby girl. I am also excited, and cannot wait till I see them again for their newborn session!

Melody & Maya | 6 Month Milestone | Chicago Baby Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/4/melody-maya-6-month-milestone-chicago-baby-photographer "When traveling life's journey it's good to have a sister's hand to hold on to."

- Unknown

Melody and Maya came to visit me at my Wheeling studio for their 6 Month Milestone session. Although these two baby girls couldn't look and be more different, they are twins! Melody has dark hair and beautiful brown eyes. Maya is blond with piercing blue eyes. Melody cannot go more than a moment without flashing her big, bright smile. Maya is more reserved and captivates your with her stare.

Despite only being a quick 45 minute session, we were able to get through so many different setups and outfits. The girls were wonderful to work with and were so much fun. They both did an amazing job for their individual images. Melody let her big personality shine with her contagious smile. Maya pulls her audience in with her blue eyes looking into your soul. 

Together, the girls were even better. Melody's smile somehow gets bigger and brighter when it is for her sister. The two of them inched in close to one another, most comfortable in each other's presence. Together, the two of them will take on the world.

I could not be happier with the results of this 6 Month Milestone session. Melody and Maya are beyond perfect, and their gallery is gorgeous.

Jenny & Paul | Hybrid Lifestyle Maternity Session | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/4/jenny-paul-hybrid-lifestyle-maternity-session-chicago-maternity-session "The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched,

they are felt with the heart." - The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

When I first discussed her maternity session with Jenny, she knew what she wanted. She wanted a lifestyle session in her beautiful home. She also wanted the entire session to be in my collection of maternity gowns. In particular, she was set on my beautiful peacock blue gown, a gown I typically only use outdoors as if it is blowing in the wind. Our Hybrid Lifestyle Maternity Session was the perfect option for Jenny and Paul's session.

When preparing for a lifestyle maternity session, I always ask my clients to send me pictures of their home. This allows me to prepare not only in terms of space but picking the maternity gowns that will best match the style of their home. When I saw the pictures of Jenny and Paul's grand entrance to their home, I knew that I had to opportunity to create something breathtaking. I also knew that Jenny's wish to use the peacock blue gown would come true! 

The results are stunning. Jenny was a natural in front of the camera. She was just gorgeous in the peacock blue maternity gown. Both of our visions were made a reality as she stood on her staircase with the gown cascading down. Paul was a little less comfortable in front of the camera, but there is no denying his love for Jenny and their new little love, Kosta, who will be here before they know it! 

Kosta's nursery is equally grand. His nursery is a regal gray and adorned with elephants and a crown fit for a little prince. It was a gorgeous backdrop for images of Jenny as she waits for her little prince. I am so happy with Jenny and Paul's hybrid lifestyle maternity gallery, and I cannot wait to meet baby Kosta!

Emma | 6 Month Milestone | Chicago Baby Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/3/emma-6-month-milestone-chicago-baby-photographer "Love is the beauty of the soul." 

- Author Unknown

Beautiful baby Emma recently came to visit me at the studio for a mini milestone session as one of my model. Emma is a natural in front of the camera, even at a fresh 6 months old. In less than half an hour, I was able to capture the most breathtaking and captivating images of this little beauty. Perhaps even more amazing, we were able to get through 3 outfits and 3 bonnet sets in that short time. With some babies, it can take nearly that long to change one outfit!

Emma stole my heart in the short time I was with her. We didn't get many smiles, but the connection she made with the camera produced images that speak to the soul.

Milestone sessions are meant to capture your baby at the various stages of the first year. They are scheduled based on abilities more than age. These sessions are generally quicker sessions because babies only tolerate so much. The setups are simple, keeping the focus on your baby. The results are pure, gorgeous images of your little one. 

It is no doubt that Emma is loved beyond measure. Her soul shines through her eyes, and it is beautiful. Thank you for bringing Emma in to see me! I hope you love the images as much as I do.

I am also so excited to debut my new logo, created by my friend, Yana Leytman! Yana is a talented graphic designer, and I can't wait to start working on my full re-brand. Stay tuned!

Pranav | Chicago IL Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/3/pranav-chicago-il-newborn-photographer "A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."

- John C. Maxwell

I always tell expecting parents that on the day of their newborn session, it is their baby that rules the show. This tiny, little new person is in charge of the entire session and all of the adults present that day. 

Every newborn and their session are different. No two sessions are the same. Their little personalities are emerging even at less than 2 weeks old. I think Pranav is destined to be a leader, because boy did he make sure the session went his way! When he wanted to be awake, he made it known that he would not be falling asleep. Pranav may not be able to talk yet but he told me everything he needed to with his facial expressions. I loved all of his little faces!

Despite some protest from Pranav, we were able to get so many great setups and poses. He has the most amazing head of hair ever, and already has his own style! I was also able to get some very special images of Pranav with his aunt. Ramya's sister flew in from India to stay with the new family of three for a couple of months as they transition into their new routine. I love how the image of the sisters with Pranav came out. Pranav is undeniably one very loved baby! 

Congratulations Ramya and Rahul! Pranav is perfect. I can't wait to see all of his accomplishments as he grows!

Estefania | Chicago IL Newborn Photgrapher https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/3/estefania-chicago-il-newborn-photographer "There are words in the soul of a newborn baby, wanting and waiting to be written."

- Todd Beta

Tere and Eliud have done it again. They have brought another perfect baby into their family. I had the pleasure of meeting this couple when they were expecting their first child, Joaquin. You can see the images from their first maternity session here. We had a second, equally wonderful, maternity session as Tere, Eliud and Joaquin waited on the newest member of the family to arrive. Joaquin was the sweetest thing during his momma's maternity session! It always so great to spend time with a family before a new baby arrives.

Estefania is just beautiful. She has the most amazing full head of hair, perfectly round and rosy cheeks. She was also a photographer's dream because she was just as sleepy as could be. It can be deceiving from the images newborn photographers post, leaving everyone to think that the babies sleep through their sessions, calm and quiet. On the contrary, not every newborn actually sleeps through their session. Estefania, however, was a dream and slept through her entire session! She allowed me to get through so many poses and setups, and she barely stirred.

Big brother Joaquin was not particularly interested in his new baby sister or family photos, this is not uncommon with toddlers. Joaquin had other ideas of what he wanted to do, including playing the piano in the other room. Perhaps that is why his baby sister slept so well! Someday in the near future, I know he will realize that he has a built in best friend in Estefania. They will have so much fun together growing and exploring!

A fun fact about Estefania's session is that she now holds the record for the most "accidents" during a session! As a newborn photographer, accidents are an occupational hazard. Whether they happen on your backdrops, props or on you, they are bound (and expected) to happen when you have sleepy, diaper-less babes. :-P 

Thank you Tere and Eliud for once again choosing me to capture your life's precious moments.
Estefania is so sweet, and I loved my snuggle time with her.

Congratulations to the whole family!

Julian | Chicago Baby Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/3/julian-chicago-baby-photographer "You are so precious to me, sweet as can be, baby of mine."

I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful family of three - Edita, Jason and baby Julian. Julian is 9 months old, and full of personality. The 6 to 9 month age range is such a fun age to photograph. The babies are full of smiles, laughs and usually cannot run away from me (usually being the keyword)! It is the best of all worlds.   

Julian is all of those things! He is also a momma's boy! I did have to ask Edita to hide a few times because Julian loves snuggling her. Once she did, he was all smiles and laughs for me! His little face is absolutely adorable! Edita must want to kiss and squeeze it all day long!

Edita and Jason, thank you so much for bringing Julian in to my studio. He is the sweetest bundle of joy and happiness, and really is as handsome as could be.

Ari | Lifestyle Hybrid Newborn Session | Chicago IL Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/3/ari-lifestyle-hybrid-session-chicago-il-newborn-photographer "The only creatures evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants."

-Johnny Depp

I was so excited to meet baby Ari, and for so many reasons. First and foremost, I am so happy for Zhenya and Sasha and the arrival of their baby boy. I've known both of them for a long time, and I don't know many couples with more love to share than these two. Ari is one lucky little guy to have them as his parents. I was also excited because I loved how Zhenya and Sasha's lifestyle maternity session had turned out. It is one of my favorite lifestyle galleries because it highlights their comfort and love with one another. Of course, we can not forget the regal Max. His presence and love for his family is apparent.

I knew that baby Ari's newborn session would be a great extension to the maternity session (see their maternity blog HERE)so we incorporated an element of lifestyle to this session as well. This is something new I'm offering for my newborn clients. It is the best of both worlds because I am able to capture more traditional, posed newborn images as well as the more relaxed, lifestyle moments in the comfort of your home. Lifestyle sessions capture the pure essence of the first days with your new baby. We all feel more comfortable in our own home and environment, leaving all the focus of the love and awe for your newborn. I bring along a select few props that are needed to create a studio look in your home. The end result is a large variety of images in your gallery to choose from.

Zhenya and Sasha's bright and airy home was the perfect backdrop to capture some beautiful memories during their first days as parents. Max was on guard over his family, and you get the sense that his very proud of his new status of big brother. Max truly loves those around him, but none more than his people - Zhenya , Sasha and, now, Ari.

The studio style images are just gorgeous. Ari is just simply perfect. Perfect skin, perfect lips, and perfectly sleepy. I especially love the family images because Ari is happiest snuggled up close and getting kisses. You can feel the love the three of them have for one another, and there is nothing better than that. 

Zenia and Sasha, I am so incredibly happy for you. Ari is the perfect addition to the family. Thank you for letting me get some snuggles in with him (and Max)!

Madeline & Eugene | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/3/madeline-eugene-chicago-newborn-photographer "Twins have a special bond.

They feel safer with each other than with their peers."

-Jeanne Phillips

I so enjoy working with not just Julia of Golden Charm Photography, but also with our precious little twin models. What you often hear about twins is true. The special bond they have can be felt, even when they are fresh newborns. It is beautiful to see in person, and even more amazing to witness how our posing of the two babies comes together so naturally. They seek comfort in the closeness of each other, and almost become one. 

Madeline and Eugene already have very distinct personalities. Eugene is the laid back one, and happily slept the entire session. Madeline is the bigger of the two, and definitely the feisty one! She made sure we knew who was in charge, but ultimately she let us do our job. Madeline and Eugene are a perfect pair.

Julia and I work so well together because we both love working with newborns, and strive to get beautiful captures. We are both so pleased with Madeline and Eugene's gallery. The individual images of each little one are so sweet, and the images of them together really capture their bond. Perhaps my favorite images in this gallery, though, are the parent poses.

Stephanie is just absolutely gorgeous and glowing as she holds her twin newborns in her arms. And when Jonas came in for the kiss, I about melted. It was also incredible to see a new father of not one but two newborns so effortlessly and comfortably hold both of his babies in his arms. It's like he has been holding two newborns at the same time all his life! The image is gorgeous, and really captures the newness of Madeline and Eugene.

Stephanie and Jonas, thank you do much for bringing your double bundle of joy in for us. They are absolutely perfect.

Edisa & Andis | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/2/edisa-andis-chicago-maternity-photographer "I swear this life is the sweetest thing I've ever known."

I first met this sweet couple when I photographed their engagement party. It was a fantastic party, and the love Andis and Edisa share could be felt by everyone at their party or anyone who's ever met the two. Their love for each other has only grown since I last saw them, and soon their family will grow by one. Edisa was SO excited for her maternity session, particularly for outdoor winter maternity images. As a concerned husband and soon to be father, Andis was a little worried about the cold outside but there was no stopping the determined Edisa. Luckily, for all of us, it was not one of the bitter cold days we have had this recently this Chicago winter. The images are just amazing, and I am so glad we all decided to go for it!

Of course we also had some fun in the studio. Edisa is simply glowing, and her excitement to meet her new love cannot be contained. Each gown was more stunning than the next on Edisa, and she truly made my job easy.

I am so thankful to have clients who share all of their life's sweetest jots with me. Andis and Edisa, I cannot wait to meet your little one!

Anna & Daniel | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/2/anna-daniel-chicago-maternity-photographer "Where there is great love, there are always miracles."

- Willa Cather

I met Anna and Daniel when they came to my Wheeling in-home studio for their maternity session. Anna contacted me early in her pregnancy to book her session, beyond excited about her first baby. Fast forward to their maternity session, and Anna and Daniel are overflowing with excitement as the time to meet their little one approaches.

Being in front of the camera can be intimidating, especially when you are eight months pregnant, so I usually start my maternity sessions with both mom and dad together. Anna and Daniel are one of the sweetest couples, and had no problem loving each other, and Anna's perfect baby belly, for the camera. When it came time for Daniel to take a seat so we could focus on Anna, he just sat and admired his beautiful wife. Anna was just stunning in all of the different maternity gowns, and Daniel seemed to loved each one more than the previous.

Even sweeter is how much of a support Daniel was for Anna from behind the scenes. If Anna would start to feel uncomfortable and stiffen her body, Daniel would make little faces at her that would instantly relax her and bring out her natural smile. Without a single word, Daniel could show Anna all his love.

Anna and Daniel are dream clients, and put their trust in me during their session. I love having clients who not only trust me, but feel comfortable with me and allow me to capture the most intimate chapters of life. Anna and Daniel, thank you for trusting me to capture your love for each other and the greatest miracle that will soon be in your arms.

Mateo & Christian l Twins | Chicago Newborn Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/2/mateo-christian-l-twins-chicago-newborn-photographer "Born together, friends forever."

Recently, my friend Julia of Golden Charm Photography and I put out a model call for newborn twins. Right away, we got a response from Alana who just recently had twin boys. We were able to work out our schedules and get Mateo and Christian into the studio the very next week. These two boys were just perfect, squishy little angels for us. At about a month old, Mateo and Christian were a little bit older than when we typically like to photograph newborns so they were a little more sensitive to touch and sounds but we were still able to get some variety of setups and poses. 

The best part about photographing twins is that you get twice the snuggles. Julia and I loved being able to cuddle these two handsome babes. They were so sweet nuzzled together in the potato sack pose! I think that Mateo and Christian quite possibly have the best cheeks ever, and this particular pose really highlighted them! This pose is also the perfect example of why the hands of two trained, professional photographers is a must when working with newborns/multiples. Together, Julia and I were able to safely get this pose, and I just love how it turned out!

Alana, thank you for bringing your handsome boys in for a session, and congratulations on your double bundle of love! 

Julia and I are still looking for more twins as a part of our model call! If you or someone you know has just had or is expecting twins in the near future, please contact us.

Tanya & Dima | Chicago Studio Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/2/tanya-dima-chicago-studio-maternity-photographer These are the days of miracle & wonder. - Paul Simon

Tanya, Dima and big brother Alex came to see me at my studio for Tanya's maternity session while they awaited the arrival of a precious baby girl. Tanya was absolutely glowing with love and excitement for her future daughter. Alex is going to be a wonderful big brother. It can sometimes be difficult with older siblings, especially boys, to feel comfortable enough in front of the camera to love and kiss mama's belly, but not for Alex. He is so loving and tender with his mama and her belly, and I know he will be the same with his baby sister. All while Dima is already very protective of his baby girl.  She is already such a lucky lady to have her daddy and big brother looking out for her.

Once we were finished with the family portion of the session, Dima and Alex went on their own adventure so that Tanya and I could have some fun. By fun, of course I mean dressing up in beautiful maternity gowns! I have built up a wonderful collection of maternity gowns that flatter every beautiful belly. More importantly, though, is that I have yet to meet a mama that hasn't felt beautiful when she put on a gorgeous, flowing gown. And that inner beauty, and confidence, always shines through in the images. Tanya, of course, was no exception. She was stunning in every color, and the gowns highlighted her perfect bump.

To capture the miracle and wonder of pregnancy is one of the many joys of being a maternity photographer. I am so thankful that my clients trust me to be a part of this miracle. Tanya and Dima, I am so happy for you as you welcome the baby girl that is going to make your family complete. Thank you for allowing me to capture the wonder and excitement in your last days as a family of three.

Natasha & Michael | Winter Wonderland Maternity | Chicago Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/2/natasha-michael-chicago-maternity-photographer  

"Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments,

embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour." - John Boswell

 

My husband recently received a call from an old friend, Michael, who had heard that I was a maternity & newborn photographer. Michael was in search of a photographer as he and his wife are expecting their first little one very soon. Luckily, I was able to get them in right away for a maternity session. It was so nice to meet one of my husband's friends who knew him before I did, and to get to know his wife, Natasha.

Natasha is a natural in front of the camera. Her sweet nature, and all around beauty is so easily captured. We were able to fit in several wardrobe changes, and Natasha was stunning in every one of the maternity gowns she chose. Michael is absolutely smitten with his beautiful wife. Like many soon-to-be fathers, Michael was a little shy in front of the camera but there was no avoiding capturing his love for his wife and their baby. One of the many joys of this job is witnessing and capturing the tenderness of a man with the mother of his baby.

We also decided to take advantage of the freshly fallen snow despite it being very COLD!! We did not last long out in the elements, but we were able to capture some gorgeous winter wonderland images. The snow, ice and Natasha just sparkled in the perfect light! I am so glad we braved it, even if just for a few minutes!

Michael and Natasha, I know this pregnancy has been filled with golden moments as you await the arrival of your baby and embark on the greatest journey of all. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your journey!

Zamonstin Maternity Session | Chicago Studio & Outdoor Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/1/chicago-studio-maternity-photographer-alina-renert---zamostin-family  

 

We made a wish - two came true. 

 

I absolutely adore this family! I have had the privilege of photographing Brigita, Yuri, and their sweet daughter, Chloe, several times over the past couple of year. Our first session together was to celebrate Chloe’s second birthday and just a few months ago we did another family session after Chloe turned four.

I was so excited when Brigita told me she was expecting again. When we originally spoke, she had mentioned how much she wanted to have her maternity photos taken in gorgeous gowns and I am so thrilled I was able to help bring that dream come to life. We photographed her beautiful maternity photos both in and out of the studio. Brigita is such a natural in front of the camera! We also photographed a few more family moments since Chloe was sick on the day of her four-year-old session.

Brigita and Yuri, wishing you all the best as your family grows!
As always, thank you for choosing me to document your precious memories.

Yevgenia Maternity Session | Chicago Lifestyle Maternity Photographer https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/1/chicago-lifestyle-maternity-photographer-alina-renert---yevgenia  

"Ill love you forever, 
I'll like you for always, 
As long as I'm living, 
my baby you'll be. 

 

Just look how precious this in-home maternity session is! This was a very special maternity session for me to photograph since I have known Yevgenia since Jr. High throughout High School and I met her husband, Alex, when we all traveled together to Israel on Birthright. They had only been dating for a few years when we went on the trip, but now they have been together for roughly 12 years now and are expecting their first baby!

During the session we were accompanied by their first “fur” born, Max, a one-year-old Doberman pup. Max definitely stole the show with his cuteness and we had fun capturing a sweet family portrait with the three of them snuggled together. He is going to be the best big fur-brother.

Yevgenia and Alex’s entire home is beautifully decorated and furnished, but I just absolutely fell in love with their nursery. The nursery is so elegant, classic, and yet carries a touch of simplicity.

This session was so much fun—we laughed the entire time. Yevgenia has an amazing quality to keep smiling and go with the flow. Even though she and Alex have been together for such a long time, their love is so fresh, undeniable, and beyond endearing. The way Alex touches Yevgenia’s belly and looks into her eyes with so much love is heartwarming. I cannot wait to meet their sweet baby soon!

Chicago Kids and Family Portrait Photographer Alina Renert - Chloe Turns 4! https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2016/1/chicago-kids-family-photographer-alina-renert---chloe-turns-4 "Let them be LITTLE 

for they are little for only a little while"
 

Chloe returned for her 4th birthday portrait and family pictures!! She's such a sweetheart and I adore her family. She wasn't feeling all to well for her session but none the less was such a trooper and adorable as ever. She has so much personality and spunk and loves mama snuggles and daddy's fun games. 

We were hoping to take some family pictures outside in the snow, luckily it was snowing on the day of the session but it was more of a blizzard than simple pretty flurries. The snow was coming down so hard in Chicago that you couldn't really see more than 10 feet in front of you clearly. 

We had mom's maternity session planned for the following month so we decided that we'd take some family pictures outside at that session to make up for the family ones not being able to be outdoor.

As always, I love working with this family and thank them for using me yet again to create more family moments. Can't wait to see them for their maternity next month!

Chicago Puppy Photographer Alina Renert - Lily the "Brat" https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2015/12/chicago-puppy-photographer-alina-renert---lily-the-brat How utterly adorable is Lily?!

This sweetie visited me in the studio for her puppy newborn pictures in mid November. She was full of kisses, snuggles and melted my heart! 

Puppy photographer isn't something I specialize in or do too frequently, but every now and then it's a nice change of pace for a new challenge.

Newborn Photographer Alina Renert captures four sweet newborn babies, Chicago, IL https://www.alinarenert.com/blog/2015/12/chicago-suburb-photographer-alina-renert---newborns-times-four  

What we learn with pleasure - we never forget. ~Alfred Mercier

 

I’m beyond blessed to have met and collaborated with so many wonderful photographers this year. Most recently I had the pleasure of working with Kayla (of Little Lashes Photography), a phenomenal, highly sought-after newborn photographer based in California.

Kayla and I met through mutual photography friends and have been in contact for quite some time now, but never had the pleasure of meeting in person. When I brought up the idea of visiting Chicago she was thrilled to visit, I realized this was a fantastic chance for us to get to know each other better, but also would give me an opportunity to learn and work alongside such a talented photographer. Prior to her arrival, we sent out a model call for newborns ranging from five days to 18 days old - and the four little models that came in that weekend were simply, perfect.

Kayla helped to arrange my new studio space for a better workflow, explained how to have better time management by walking me through her methods of preparing for a session, and gave me wonderful pointers on working with newborns who are over the 14 day old mark - which we try to hit with newborn sessions. There are various poses that we newborn photographers have in our workflow for sessions ie: froggy, taco, sideline and etc. Kayla helped by demonstrating how to work through a fussier little one and to modify for each individual newborns flexibility.

Working with Kayla and our little models was an absolute blast! In 2016, Kayla is starting mentoring sessions for photographers in the California area, as well as the continental U.S. Reach out and inquire about her services at Facebook.com/LittleLashesPhotography
