I absolutely adore in-home newborn lifestyle sessions. My awesome clients make being a Chicago newborn photographer so much fun!
Kelsey, Kevin and I hung out during their maternity session a couple of months ago, in super cold Chicago temps. Click here to read about how cold it was, and see some pictures from their session! Luckily, this time when we met up, we hung out indoors. And, I got to meet Millie! Who is adorable!!!
The in-home session experience
Part of why I love in-home newborn lifestyle sessions in Chicago, is everything is done in the comfort of your home. Which makes it for a fun and relaxing session for everyone. I have a few tips and tricks I send off to my clients for preparation, and then you’re set – no matter if it’s freezing or raining or whatever Chicago throws at us. And, bonus – you don’t have to leave your house with a newborn!
When I get to a client’s house, I take a few minutes to walk around and check out the lighting conditions, so I can plan. Kevin was in awesome dad mode and had their house spotless in preparation. Their house had gorgeous light, and the nursery was just so cute. We took one break when Millie got hungry, but I plan for this and always build enough time in my sessions so we can take any breaks your new baby needs.
Such cute wraps
Millie loves being wrapped. And her mom had some beautiful wraps and headbands for her. I always bring several, just in case, but Kelsey had a classic grey one (love) and pretty purple one (love) all picked out and ready to go. They were perfect!
And the icing on the cake? Kevin found a classic Chicago wrap for Millie, straight from Portillos! I could not stop laughing,
Below are some pictures of their session.
This family is simply beautiful.
