Chicago newborn photographer

This was such a fun weekend! I just absolutely loved it. As I tend to love all of my newborn sessions. This week, I am staying close to home. As close as I possibly can. A mother has asked me to photograph her birth story of her second baby and I am so excited! I am not sure what its going to be like or when it will happen. Its a weird feeling to not have control of when the birth story will start. Its also expected to have control but I wish I did. Or I at least wish I had an inkling of when its supposed to happen. I start my semester of school next week as well. So this is going to be one interesting week! I only have 1 class starting next week, the other 3 are starting in a month from now. I signed up for classes and then realized that had been the case. I am indifferent. I just really want to be done with school already. I am working on my bachelors in business and I would love to just be done. Its hard to juggle classes. school, part time jobs and *trying* to hang out with friends.

Anyways, I am thinking about purchasing a macro lens! I have a lens filter that works like a macro lens. I put this filter on my 50mm lens. It was only $18 and it works really well. But when I see other macro photos, I tend to start looking at how much a macro lens would cost. Macro shots are really important to me since I take detail photos of little newborns toes, hands, belly buttons, lips, and eye lashes. I love these detail photos! The parents will be able to look back on these photos of their once very tiny babies and remember just how small they once were...I picture them looking back at these photos when their kid is leaving for college. Oh, I love making memories...
