There are a few photos that I always recommend parents take during Baby’s First Year.  They are only going to be this little for such a short time, so it is fun to make the most out of capturing it.

My absolute favorite holiday photo that does just that is baby with their Christmas stocking – better yet IN their stocking.  Year after year you will be able to reflect back on this photo as you hang up their stocking and think – “you used to fit in there!”

I have done this photo with sleeping newborns…

It is best when you can use a stocking that will be their’s for years to come, but really any stocking will do.

And if they won’t fit in it – sitting up in Christmas pajamas and pulling gifts out is just as precious!!!

The holiday season is the perfect time to get out your cameras and spend a bit of time capturing those little moments.

Wondering what to do with baby each day during maternity leave – take a page out of this Mama’s book and come see me for some fun photos.  Newborn photos are best between 1 and 14 days and they are the ultimate in squishable, posing fun, but there is so much to love at any age.  At just one or two months, baby’s are more alert, showing a bit of personality, and still small enough to cuddle up for at least one photo!

Brixton came to visit the studio at 7 weeks and we photographed such a diverse amount of shots in just about 2 hours.  We took our time, and even took a snack break, and it was fun for all2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studio2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studioNatural poses for awake babiesAwake 2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studioAwake Newborn Photos - 2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studioNatural Baby Posing - 2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studio2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studioBig Yawn - 2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studioNatural Baby Posing - 2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studio2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studioBaby in Mom's Arms Black and White 2 month newborn photography session Chicago photo studioBaby and Mom - best posesBaby and Mom best photo poses

If a “Merry & Bright” Christmas card is what you’ve been searching for, I’d like to invite you into our “Winter Wonderland” for a quick mini session.  This is all you need to capture a picture perfect photo of your little one that you can use for holiday cards this year and frame for the years to come.

One of my favorite holiday traditions is getting out framed photos from years past. A photo of a newly married couple kissing by the Christmas tree develops into a sweet little boy in his stocking and then into a rambunctious toddler munching a Christmas cookie.  The years pass quickly, but those memories feel a bit fresher when you can look at framed photos each season!!!

Here are a few photos using this year’s setup!
