Mount Prospect Newborn Photographers – Artwork & Keepsakes

Mount Prospect Newborn Photographers

The best part of the custom portrait process is meeting with your photographers and viewing your newborn photos. It can be overwhelming and fun (yes, at the same time) deciding how you will preserve and view them. When we are unable to have the actual wall we can use some mock home images, seen below. We went through so many ideas and here is the final design choice in our new Heritage Wood Print.

Live in Mount Prospect and looking for newborn photographers? Give me a call to discuss your new arrival!

I need to correct myself. The best part is the delivery of your art products. The final result of your hard work. Getting outfits together, getting everyone ready AND getting yourself ready, making sure everyone naps and is fed. Getting everyone there and then imagining and deciding on how you will enjoy and love them. All the work comes down to the delivery day. It is kind of like Christmas Morning or your birthday. On this delivery day, Big Sister was very excited and was suggesting that the small wood print be hung just at her eye level so she could look at it all the time.

Do not just tell your children, show them. Show them they are important, show them family is important. Print and display. Even if it is just one professional product.

Booking now through September 2018.

Des Plaines Studio – Newborn and Family Portrait Session

Des Plaines Studio – Newborn and Family Portrait Session

Often a families first outing is their newborn session. This family traveled to my portrait studio in Des Plaines, IL for their first family portrait. The stuffed bear mom brought with was a perfect match.

Babies first year tip: Bring the stuffed friend back to your sessions over the first year to document babies growth. Some wonderful first year keepsakes can be made!

The first family portrait that will hang in their home… I am so honored to be able to capture this for the new family of three.

Des Plaines Forest Preserve – Outdoor Family Portrait Session

Des Plaines Forest Preserve – Outdoor Family Portrait Session

It seems that parents have everything they need. We as grown children have to think about what they can’t get themselves. Sisters teamed up for an extended family portrait as a present for Mom and Dad this holiday season. We met at the Des Plaines Forest Preserve and started our session in the leaves. What is better then looking at images of your children and grandchildren everyday!

The idea is to end up with a new gallery wall that will showcase old images combined with the new images as well as some artwork from the grandchildren and leave room to grow. Next session will include Grandma and Grandpa for a large image of the extended family. Looking forward to heading out to the Forest Preserve with them again this year!

Sometimes we will use some stock room images to help visualize a space.

We ended the session by photographing each kid with their special friends. Each of these will be framed and displayed in their homes. Sometimes special friends change as kids grow, sometimes they are still laying on their bed when they turn 12, either way this is a big part of the stage of their life that they are in now. We all remember carrying around our favorite dolls, toys and special blankets. I like to get those documented for the kids after their portraits are complete. These are the ones they will be showing off in 20 years ­čÖé

Together we designed an entire wall that will grow with them as their family grows. With room for many more images, this image from their maternity session and one from their newborn session will join a wedding image (which I also created for them :)) and be the start of their family wall.

I am so ecstatic to watch this wall grow and am honored to be the photographer to document all of these important stages and connections. Stay tuned for more of their wall and baby O’s first year!

Digital Collage Wall Art for the Home – Des Plaines, IL

It wasn’t easy to decide which heirloom art product the family wanted. With so many beautiful images and a small space to display, the digital collage won! Framed in a black gallery frame, this will be a gorgeous piece for their home without sacrificing any of Mom’s favorite images.

Fall Family Session At Central Park – Des Plaines, IL

I found these gorgeous colors still hanging around at Central Park. This family of five took advantage of the weekend and we ended up with a fabulous fall family session! Mom dressed everyone perfectly for this session and the location. The result is nothing but perfect family portraits!
