This little angel was absolutely precious – and awake! – for her entire newborn session. Baby Caroline showed off during her time in the spotlight. She even followed my camera with her big, beautiful newborn eyes as if to say, “And here are my cute toes…”
Capturing their Laid Back Love
Olivia and Ryan wanted laid back, realistic photos to remember this special time in their lives soon after they brought their little girl home, so I made my way over to the Niles area of Chicago for an in-home photo shoot. They did a wonderful job of creating a warm, soothing nursery for their baby girl. The charcoal gray and natural, woody colors worked perfectly for the backdrop as lots of natural light streamed in. Baby Caroline snuggled happily into a little fur-lined nest with her teddy bear by her side.
I made sure to get several up-close photos of her perfect nose, lips, eyes and toes. These are the tiny features that we never want to forget about our children. Nine months in the making, those characteristics are the little details that make our babies uniquely ours.
I love the pictures of the three of them relaxing on the bed. This is what family looks like. Nothing fancy, just real and full of love. And when I said three, I actually meant four. This family shoot wouldn’t have been complete without some pictures with their beloved pup, Ralphie. He clearly adores his new baby human, monitoring her closely at all times. Nothing can separate a girl and her pup.
Olivia and Ryan, your family is beautiful! It was truly an honor to capture a glimpse of these first few magical days. Congratulations on the arrival of sweet Caroline!
I simply love being a Lincolnwood Skokie Chicago Evanston Niles Newborn Photography Best photographer. Just look at this cutie!
