Chicago Studio Newborn Photographer
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 :)
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
