– A Note From Abbey –

Chicago Newborn Photography

For the past 5 years I have dedicated myself to capturing the lives of so many amazing people in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. To become such a sought out Chicago newborn photographer has come as a whirlwind of both surprise and pleasure. My art and craft has been dedicated to God and to the precious lives I capture every day. I am equally thrilled to be known to hundreds of families as their personal family photographer and child photographer. It has been a true joy to serve them and see them grow in number and beauty!

Part of my amazing job has gained me my position as a top Chicago Maternity Photographer. I have poured countless hours into developing my approach and look, and I make sure to provide each client with lasting memories with my timeless approach.

I love Maternity sessions! I capture mothers during such a special and beautiful time. We meet between thirty-two and thirty-six weeks along. This provides both a beautiful bump while staying far enough from a mother’s due date. This gives us the flexibility to reschedule for the optimal results! These session typically last an hour, meeting at some of the best Chicago scenic locations located in downtown Chicago, as well as the gorgeous towns of Hinsdale, Naperville, Oak brook, and Elmhurst!

Chicago Newborn Photographer

    As a leading Chicago Newborn photographer, I have spent the past five years learning and understanding the intrequisies on newborn photography and infant photo sessions. In this time I have photographed thousands of sessions, half of them being newborns! Here is some great information on when and why we schedule newborn sessions as we do!

Newborn sessions are typically booked between five and fourteen days after a mother gives birth. This is the time when the newborn is the most sleepy and most posable. Because of the rapid growth of these little ones, we only have a few short weeks when the infant is incredibly flexible and slowly starting to become alert to the world around them. As the newborns begin to grow rapidly, they love to open their eyes, see what is going on around them, and will struggle against the poses and wraps.  Newborn Sessions can take between one to three hours to complete depending on what packages you are selecting!

    I love what I do! I know I keep saying this but it has been a dream come true. I love that each newborn session means such a great deal to every family I meet. I truly believe that each baby I photograph will look at their newborn photos and thank their parents for doing this for them. Newborn sessions are not only for the parents to enjoy, but a way for family and friends to also celebrate through the sharing of these precious memories! I am so glad I am able to share in the lives of so many precious little ones!

“…She is a pleasure to work with and as a first time mom I was very impressed with the thought she not only put into the photos but the care of our son at such a young age …” Rochelle from Chicago

“…She’s got the eye and she’s got the talent. She is fun and brings all of the props with her. She will spend as much time as she needs to take the best pics. I really like her work. Great to work with!”

Grace from Frankfort

“…Her pictures are consistently breathtaking and have made my husband and I wish for more wall space as we have turned so many of them into canvas prints. … She used a variety of baby calming techniques, and my little one slept through the whole thing! Abigail now feels like part of the family, and I look forward to having her photograph all our major life milestones.”
