Newborn Hospital Session | Downtown Chicago

Lifestyle Session | Fresh Sesh


Taking hospital newborn photos is just one of my most favorite things. It’s such a precious time for a family and to hear these two describe their experience, their surprises, their love… it’s life. Truly life. I feel really privileged to capture such special, intimate moments.

I’m consistently surprised at just how much I’m struck by these moments. When I first entered the downtown Chicago hospital’s little room, it happened again.¬†These two are first-time parents and the whole process was full of unexpecteds, but as they shared, their awe at their little one was unmistakable. This mama made it through a long and difficult labor, and yet, when we were taking photos she was completely aglow. Dad has some superpower as well, cuz when baby girl cried, all he had to do was hold her and she calmed down immediately. I joked that I needed him at all of my newborn sessions. I was mostly joking.

I could have taken photos of these three all day long.
