Ellie’s Stunning Newborn Session | Barrington Il Newborn Photographer

Barrington Il Newborn Photographer

Heather reached out to me before sweet Ellie was born and asked if we could incorporate Ellie’s grandfather into the newborn session somehow.  Grandpa passed away two weeks prior to Ellie’s arrival and I still can’t imagine the bittersweet emotions the family experienced during that time. My thoughts and prayers are still with their family. I wanted to do something simple that memorialized him and showed the things that he loved without overdoing it.  In the photos grandpa was doing and wearing the two things he loved most, triathlons and Iowa Hawkeyes. Heather mentioned that Grandpa was a huge Iowa Hawkeyes fan. When Heather shared that idea with me I could not have said “YES” fast enough.

Ellie’s Demeanor

Stunning newborn photos are always my goal. When it comes so easy to me in a session then I thank my lucky stars.  Ellie was so peaceful aside from her not allowing us to bundle her nice and tight.  She had to have her one arm out at all times. Ellie most likely was saying “Hey we do this on my terms, even when I am asleep.”  Ellie allowed the stunning newborn session to continue until we decided to unwrap her. We put her in  a beautiful romper which she proceeded to poop in as to say to me, “I”M DONE!”

When the stars align and my newborn session turn out as “stunning” as these did then I am so thankful.

Check out the gallery below to see how much of a stunning newborn session it was.
