Off beat sunset newborn session | Oak Park family photography

I met Lacy at a starbucks with her little family, as they were on the hunt for a photographer. I was honored to have been able to interview with them. From the moment I met her her beautiful positive demeanor just drew me in. We went through our year checking in, I photographed her maternity session, we prepped and got ready for the upcoming birth. The day of the birth unplanned situations occured and she really showed more of her true self. The way she handled the changes were beautiful. I saw a human break down and pick herself up. I saw a partner completely support the love they share, and be there spiriually and physically. & then these photos were two weeks later. Can’t you just feel the radiating love? This sweet baby girl could not be more loved. I love her story! I often think of the times in the future when birth images will be shared, and how inpactful it will be for her, to see the strenght and the love that was shared on the one night in July. Their little union is unbreakable. I cannot wait to see how they evolve, also can we talk about the doting brother. They are just too much !

Birth is powerful, and I am so lucky to be able to capture it. If you’re interested in having your birth photographer click here!

I made it, I finally got to see this beautiful boy again.

He was my first hospital birth, my only complaint would be those thin mattresses used for the birthing partner to sleep on, holy ouch. That’s a no from me. lol. How do they make partners nap or even sleep overnight there? I was able to test them out during my birth session with them. While uncomfortable It was still such an honor to see this sweet little guy make his very vocal entrance onto this world.

I couldn’t believe how alert and big he had gotten. I know a ton of my colleagues are not fond of 3 months sessions because babies are not able to sit or do much. But that’s the point!!! (me with my shouty exclamation points) They are this lovely tiny human just needing their moms just as much as a newborn while smiling and cooing and just being rad.

bring on more 3-month sessions, please!

It feels like this was the calm after the storm. I captured this little family as they welcomed their baby at home 2 weeks prior to this image. In reality, this is probably the beginning of a new storm, a beautiful one at that. Angela, however, seems fully equipped to deal with the toughest of storms. The way she so calmly gave birth and the way she treats her oldest, I know for sure she is so ready for the new sweet baby girl. This whole family is just inspiring. They welcomed me into their home, and I just felt so incredibly comfortable. They made my job effortless.

Sometimes we get lucky like that! I wish them all the best as they start their new journey as a family of four.
