Daphne | Lake County Newborn Photographer |

Had a fun time with this little girl. When I arrived to their home, I was in awe with the skylights in the family. It was able to light up the shot perfectly.  She was a trooper throughout the whole photoshoot.  Here are a couple I wanted to...

Jace | Lake County Newborn Photographer |

Please help me introduce Baby Jace Caleb into this world! My wife and I had a fun time taking pictures of this little one. A big thank you to his parents for being so patient with us. We also had the assistance of Jace’s older brother Romeo III. When we first arrived, Romeo made sure to let us know the one thing he was tasked to do and when I asked him what that was, he looked me in the eye’s and said, “I’m here to watch over my little brother”. I immediately knew where my place was for the day. = ) Enjoy! Big Brother made a cameo...

K’Avonni | Lake County Newborn Photographer |

I had the pleasure of meeting this 12 day old little princess in the making, K’Avonni. At first, this little one was wide awake and wasn’t going down anytime soon so I took advantage of some shots of her with her beautiful eyes open. But once she was out for the count, even a Midwest Snowpocolypse with thunder and lightning and 6 foot drifts and flying cows wasn’t going to wake this little one up. I guess this was because she was born on the day the big storm hit our little part of the country. Once the party began, my assistant slash wife slash business manager slash boss and I had a lot of fun with this shoot because we were able to dress her up where even Back to School Barbie would turn around and do a double take and get jealous of all the outfits and props we had for K’Avonni. A big thank you to Mommy Nikole for helping out with the feeding and changing when it was needed. Hope you enjoy! I think this is my favorite of them...

Serene | Lake County Newborn Photographer |

So since I have this new and wonderful blog setup for all to see, I think I need to update it now with my past shoots. Here is Serene, she is a very pretty little girl and these shots were taken at around her 14th day into this wonderful world. We were going to do them sooner but I was hit with the flubug. This was definitely more of a challenge due to the fact that it was past the ideal 10 day newborn shoot. Oh and btw, if you would like to have newborn photos, the best time to to have them done is within the first 10 days because this is when the little one does NOTHING but sleep. It won’t be impossible if done after the 10 days but the baby may not want to sleep as much. So onto the show. I co-shot this with my friend Amber Iverson, who provided some or I think all of the little props and headbands, so I thank you for that little contribution. We definitely had fun with this one. Hope you enjoy! Caught this one just in time! And what’s a newborn session without a ring shot! (I stole this shot idea from Amber....

Kevin | Lake County Newborn Photographer |

I enjoyed taking photos of this most precious, sweet, and handsome little man!  Today he is nine days old and just over eight pounds, yet he has the strength and build of a much older baby.  He has a big sister who is madly in love with him and two proud parents that can’t keep their eyes off of him. He was such a good sport throughout the whole session, which made it a pleasure capturing these wonderful and sweet images.  Here’s a preview of Kevin’s newborn session. ENJOY!!! PROUD BIG...
