Welcome to the world baby Ellen | Wisconsin Birth Photography

Sweet Baby Girl Ellen

{Born May 2, 2011}

Recently when asked what one of my favorite things to photograph was, I quickly answered : births.

To accurately describe the love & emotion that is present @ that time is next to impossible.  I love capturing that, I love being around it & love documenting it.

Particularly for this family it was very important to have a very pleasant birth experience & documenting the first few moments as a family of four.

Many times for mommy’s {& daddy’s too} you are so much in the moment that taking photos is the farthest from your mind.  You’ve been waiting 9 LONG months to meet this new person & all you want to do is stare at their beautiful face.  Especially for c-section mommies documenting a birth can be helpful because I was able to go with daddy into the nursery & document those moments so that mommy isin’t missing out.

Thanks for the wonderful opportunity K & M.  I hope this experience was everything you dreamed of & congrats on being a family of 4 now!

Beckett | Janesville & Madison Wisconsin Newborn Photographer

Beckett Cooper

{14 days old}

Newborns, newborns, newborns.

They always seem to have their own agenda for our sessions, mr. Beckett did as well.

Many times people will ask how long a typical newborn session will last & it is always difficult to judge.

Every baby is different {every baby has their own idea of how they are going to allow me to photograph them}

I love the challenge.  I love the adventure & most of all, I sincerely love {as long as it may take} capturing this brief moment in their lives, when everything is so new.

New for the family, new for the baby & new for the world.

I loved having the opportunity to photograph Beckett with his eyes open, because he was a little older I was able to capture his eyes, looking around, exploring his new surroundings.

I photographed his big brother {Maguire} several years ago.  Their mommy & daddy were one of my very first clients when I started my business.

I might add that big brother Maguire was very very cooperative for his portion of the photo session & that was much appreciated.

S & E, enjoy your sneak peeks & I hope that your new family of four is doing well!

Brand New Baby Eleanor | Janesville Wisconsin Newborn Photographer

Melissa & Brandon brought their sweet little baby girl into the studio for her newborn session.

I met M & B several years ago when I photographed their engagement session & was so excited to hear they were expecting.

Newborns involve a lot of work & patience but so rewarding, I love taking the time to cuddle them down to sleep & prepare them for the next shot.

The love between this little family of three, is so amazing. Documenting that was my pleasure!

Thanks for your time M & B and it was great visiting with you both again.

Enjoy your sneak peek!

Baby Tate’s Baptism | Janesville Wisconsin Event Photographer

Sweet little baby Tate

Oh he wasn’t super pleased with the idea of his Baptism day.  But with the help of his mommy, daddy, family & friends he made it through.

You might remember him from a recent BLOG post.  I photographed him at his home for his Newborn session, click here to see that post.

It was an honor for me to photograph Tate’s baptism at St. William Catholic Church in Janesville.

The light is absolutely beautiful & Father John did a wonderful job.

Enjoy the sneak peek

Brothers | Chicago Illinois Portrait Photographer

Mr. Mason & Mr. Devin recently came into the studio & let me tell you that Devin was so well behaved.  Momma {brave soul} brought the boys in by herself & let me tell you, she is one lucky lady.  Those boys are not only absolutely adorable but Devin was the perfect big brother!

It was wondering seeing you again Jill.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!

The {P} Family | Janesville Wisconsin Newborn & Baby Photography | On-location

Sweet little baby Tate.

I met his mom almost a year ago when she called & asked me to photograph her nephew as a surprise gift for her sister.

We’ve kept in touch this past year & was so excited to hear about her pregnancy news!

I’ve had the opportunity to photograph several of Tate’s older cousins & look forward to watching this clan of little babies get older.

I’m not sure I can emphasis enough just HOW. MUCH. I. LOVE. TO. PHOTOGRAPH. NEWBORNS.

Yikes. Amazing.

Thank-you to awesome clients like Kellie & Chad who allowed me into their home & gave me free creative range to capture their little one.

Seriously, they just melt my heart.  I love every minute of it.

{even if they do perhaps tinkle on my blankets}

It was great to spend the morning at your home K & C, enjoy the sneak peeks!

Meet Tate, the Rockstar.

His beautiful nursery

Daddy is a Police Officer, & this was a vintage decoration in his room.  Loved it.

{Mommy & Daddy also met there}

Some Bow Tie goodness.

PearsonBLOG#1

Loved this idea.  Mommy put on red lipstick & kissed his cheek.  The smirk was a bonus.

PearsonBLOG#2

Love his little lips here.

Momma’s boy.

PearsonBLOG#7

I couldn’t help but include this image.  I will say though that he didn’t do this very often during his session.  I think this was just a little squeal  & he went right back to sleep.

But look at those wrinkles, love it!

The {R} Family | {Madison Wisconsin Baby & Family Photography}

The the {R} family rolled into the studio I knew I would be kept on my toes.  Little miss Lydia was so adorable & full of energy for the whole session.

We ended up with some very sweet images of the family, miss Lydia & her little brother Miles, debuting on the BLOG @ 2 1/2 months old.

Here is mr. Miles

Loved his super serious look.

Love, love, love family shots like this.  Now did we take several of them, of course we did.  You have two when a 2 year old is involved.  But I just love this image.

RuscheBLOG#1 copy

This was a vision after talking to mom.  During the planning process of her session we discussed doing a “name” shot.  Having Miles spelled out & he would be the “I” in the image.  I’ve done this shot before outside, with chalk & obviously that wasn’t an option this time a year.  So we thought of cutting out the letters with felt!

I think it worked out great!  Hope it is what you envisioned Nicole!

Hailey Belle | {Chicago IL, Modern Lifestyle Newborn Photographer}

Sweet little baby Hailey.

Get a load of her beautiful hair!  Loved it, loved it.

I’m looking forward to documenting her milestones over the next year, I can’t wait to see what she’ll look like for her 1 year session!

Heidi you’ll have to give her like 5 haircuts her first year!

So on to the session ::

Wow she was a complete ROCKSTAR the entire time.  She let us move her, twist her, put her on a dresser & put her outside in a random crib.

Hailey’s mom & I both went to college at Bradley University a few years back & we were also in the same sorority Sigma Delta Tau.   I haven’t seen her in years & it was great to catch up with you Heidi!  You have a beautiful home!

We used a few different locations in Heidi’s home & when I saw Hailey’s nursery I knew exactly what we had to do.

I really love doing newborn sessions at clients’ homes because it really allows you to personalize your session even more & you can go away with some really fun, amazing images of your nursery.

Thanks for the nice afternoon & enjoy the sneak peek!

Max : Little Brother {Janesville Wisconsin Newborn Photography}

Every newborn that comes into the studio has their own little personality.

This little guy : Max, he had a mind of his own.  He loved to be held by his momma & cuddled in nice & tight.

We worked it out though & he cooperated with us, thank-you Mr. Max.

In case you missed it, here was momma’s maternity session

Max brought in his mommy, daddy & two older sisters : Jasmine & Tia.  They were so incredible with him & it was absolutely adorable to watch them together.

You have quite the helpers on your hands mom & dad.

Enjoy the sneak peek!
