"My favorite part of having a studio with professional lighting is trying desperately to capture my client's eyes. The gateway to our soul." 

My Studio

I LOVE that I can get personal with my smallest clients AND my head shot clients. I have a dedicated space in my walk-out basement that has room darkening shades, professional lighting, back drops, props, baby wraps and a few space heaters for my tiny newborn clients. It is also a perfect space for milestone sessions and cake smash sessions, especially for the negative degree weather we experience in the cold Chicago winters. Complete with a sitting area and tons of toys, TV and refreshments for all our favorite families and clients.



Milestone and 1 Year Cake Smash Sessions $175 - 275

3-, 6-, 9-, 12-month milestone sessions with the option of a cake smash session for the one year mark. We will chat briefly about your baby’s abilities at the time of your session so we are sure to capture the importance of each milestone.

Newborn In-Studio Session $400

I incorporate a mixture of posed and baby-led posing. I use light props, organic wraps and beautifully, thought through set-ups including different baskets, basket fluff and crocheted and quilted posing blankets, sweet newborn headpieces and delicately knitted stocking caps and bonnets. Prior to session we will discuss colors and desires. This is a two hour session photographing you and your newest addition to your family. Plenty of room in our waiting area, toys for siblings to play with and beverages and snacks.
