Baby Names – A List of names from a Chicago Newborn Photographer

Did you know how many Chicago baby names we have?

This whole past year I did my best to write down my Chicago baby names I photographed in 2017. Wheew!

While this is not even the half of it (and there are so many more names rolling in), I would love to share with you many of the names of the little ones I have photographed last year!  I also loved praying over each baby for health and happiness either during our newborn session or while I was editing those sweet photos.

Thank you to all my clients that chose me to take part in such a precious and memorable time in their lives. I am forever grateful and thankful for each and every one of you and I look forward to seeing these beautiful babies grow up!

Using this list to help you decide on your newborn’s name:

While there are so many more names to choose from, and many of you will be looking to use a family name, I have had several mothers tell me that they in face used this list of names to help them decide on naming their little ones! I had no idea the help that this simple list might be to some mothers, but I am thrilled that it can be a little resource:) My Chicago baby names below, are in no particular order, and you’ll see there are probably name duplicates. I took these baby names from my personal journal, and just wanted to share them!

about abigail

Hi! I’m Abigail. You can call me Abbey, all my friends do:)

I'm a Chicago based professional newborn photographer. I also love photographing maternity, children and family sessions!

I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area, in a small town in the suburbs called Western Springs. I couldn’t suggest it more! I dream about moving to the West Coast, California specifically.

My blog is a mix of galleries, journals, stories from my travels, and the behind the scenes of my life as a professional photographer.
