I call myself a photographer | Chicagoland Portrait Photographer

Chicago Newborn Photographer | Abigail Joyce Photography

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

I get asked a lot how I started photography.  I love this question. I get to explain to my clients and friends all the time why I wanted to photographing families and babies. The reason is simple. I grew up with my father always taking photos of my siblings and I. We have picture albums that fill up entire shelves in the basement of pictures of us growing up. I flip through them almost monthly, sometimes to look for a good #tbt (throwback Thursday) or just to see my baby pictures again, sometimes it was for school projects and sometimes its for inspiration. My parents only seldom took us to JCPenney or Sears for “professional” pictures, so all of our pictures in the albums are us growing up in the same house just with older wallpaper. Most of the pictures are candids or just daily life photos. I saw my dad’s love for photography and I took it as my own. I cherish what cameras do for us. They allow us to remember a time and a memory.

Henry, the newborn photographed below, wont always be this size or this sleepy. In fact, we probably cant pose him today the same way we did two weeks ago. That moment has passed, but the photos will stay with Henry’s family for a lifetime. And one day Henry will be able to look back at his newborn photos and see all the details of his tiny little fingers and toes and how beautiful he was as a newborn.
