It’s a small world here in Chicago. I met this darling family and after some chatting during the session, we discovered that I went to school with her younger sister! I haven’t seen her sister since we graduated – too funny! What a small world, huh? I love all of the Miami and Ohio grads around the Chicagoland area. Love and Honor!
This was such a special session. There’s nothing quite like the love between siblings. And really, there’s just nothing like watching two big brothers ham it up for their baby sister’s big photo debut. I was so glad to be the Winnetka lifestyle newborn photographer for this family. This momma was surprised with the gender of her last baby, a second little boy! But this time, she couldn’t have been more excited to finally get to meet her sweet baby girl! After two boys, she is over the moon to finally have some pink in her home. This little beauty arrived early. She must have been ready to meet her big brothers who were more than happy to love on her during the session.
I think the contrasting “boys in blue, girls in pink” wardrobe choice for this photo session was just perfect. It really made for some stunning and timeless photos and really celebrated the arrival of their sweet baby girl. The Stecko’s home was beautifully lit with natural light pouring in and very welcoming. The perfect backdrop for newborn and family photos. This sweet angel was adorable and looked oh so cuddly in her woven pink swaddle. Well, she must have been cuddly, because, as you can see, she slept through the entire session.
Stecko family, thank you for choosing me to be your Winnetka lifestyle newborn photographer. It was really great to be in your home to capture these early days for your sweet family of five. Of course, it’s always fun to make connections like realizing I know your sister! Pretty cool. Anyway, I hope these photos are a precious reminder of these little years you get to enjoy together.
