“Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
-Winnie the Pooh
Meet Leo, a precious baby boy who was just a few days old at the time of this session! Although he is itty bitty, the difference he has already made on this world is so significant. He has brought an incredible amount of joy and love into his family’s home, and they couldn’t be more thrilled that he is here. Like Winnie the Pooh said, “Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” I don’t think this could be any more true. Leo is such a blessing.
Sweet Sleepy Moments
His parents, Lucy and Nichiolas, contacted me to document their son’s first few moments. I love newborn photography. Although it can pose as a challenge, it is so heart-warming to work with the innocence of a child. Leo was super sweet throughout the session, and adorable as can be. He was very calm and cooperative, and seemed to enjoy being snuggled up to mom and dad. Before he was born, Lucy and Nichiolas decided to keep the sex of the baby as a surprise. I’m sure the anticipation of wanting to know was difficult for them, but I love that they were able to hold out and wait until the birth to find out! What a cool experience that not many people do. Leo was such a beautiful surprise, and they love him to pieces!
This session was definitely one for the books. I loved each photo we were able to capture of Leo and his parents. I enjoyed every minute spent with this family, and hope to see baby Leo in the near future!
What a sweet boy Leo is. I am absolutely thrilled to have been his Lincoln Park Lakeview Bucktown Chicago Top Newborn Photographer!
