I provide Chicago baby portraits to help parents document and remember the amazing feelings, smiles, and laughs that is unique to just their child.  You baby portraits can be scheduled and photographed between 1 month and 1 year before they begin their journey into being a toddler!

Baby Portrait locations

Photographing little ones can be difficult without attempting to meet at the proper location. Many great locations can be found both in the heart of Chicago and the surrounding towns. I provide a list of great locations in downtown Chicago and towns like Hinsdale, Elmhurst, Lisle, and Oak Brook, IL. Some of these locations are gardens, others are arboretums, and a few are beautiful grassy fields. I also have some fantastic parks that provide easy access as well as beautiful photographic locations and scenes. The best time to meet at outdoor locations for baby portraits in the Chicagoland area are between the months of May and November.

For one hour, I meet with my clients and their children and we photograph the growth, expressions, and smiles. This type of session is perfect for documenting such a special moment in time. Childrens photography takes specific patience and skill. It’s important that we also plan your child’s session around their nap times, or earlier in the morning! The best time in most children’s hours will be in the earliest morning hours of the day. A general timeframe to meet for your children’s portrait session may be closer to 10:00 AM.

A children’s portraits are a fantastic way to document the growth and changes that your child is going through. You can schedule children’s sessions for a single child or siblings. Because all of my children’s sessions include a small portion of time to include family, take advantage of this! By meeting for your children’s sessions, you can also update your family photos and document the changes as a family together.
