I don’t have very many sessions at the two month mark as a Chicago baby photographer. I usually meet babies when they are days old – but I have to say, I fell in love with this session. I joined this lovely family at their Chicago area home for this baby photography session. Little Leila was smiley and awake, engaging with the camera and offering such sweet expressions. I loved connecting with her from behind my camera. Her gaze was serious and soulful for such a wee one! It reminded me of the Shakespearean quote from a Midsummer Night’s Dream, “Though she be but little, she is fierce!” Fitting for this midsummer, dreamy session. Speaking of dreams, I was so pleased that we were also able to capture some sweet, sleepy moments after a mid-morning snack. Her parents are adjusting to life with her in such a wonderful way. Dad was so proud and protective. Mom’s strong love for her just radiates through these images. Photography has the power to freeze these precious and fleeting moments in time and I can’t wait to see the beautiful images they choose decorate their walls.
