Harper - 5 weeks old • Chesterton, IN Newborn Photographer

Harper's sweet grandmother contacted me in late December because her granddaughter had been born 4 weeks prior and they needed her newborn photos done as soon as possible! While I usually do newborn photos in the first 5-14 days while they are still super sleepy and curly, I just didn't have the heart to turn them away. Her family traveled all the way to Chesterton from Dyer for her photoshoot, and after about an hour she was out cold and posed just as easily as any of my other newborns, with the added bonus of smiles both asleep and awake! I truly loved working with Harper and her family! 

While it's best to book your newborn session before your baby is born, be sure to contact Lauren as soon as possible so that we can fit your new bundle in! Accepting all newborns from NWI region and Chicagoland area at my natural light studio in Chesterton, IN. Hope to plan your session soon!

Kenley | NWI Chesterton Newborn Photography Studio

Ohhh sweet Kenley! Her mother is a dear friend of mine and when she told me that Kenley's daddy made a moon prop for her to be photographed in, I jumped at the opportunity! She came a little earlier than expected and had to spend a little time in the NICU, so she didn't get her newborn photos until she was 4 weeks old. I was nervous since babies are best photographed during their first 14 days of life, but she nailed it!

 They were so incredibly kind that they gave me the moon so that I am able to capture other babies as they dream!

I have been so incredibly lucky to continue to capture Ellie as she grows, she is just such a lovely baby with a beautiful personality! I would bet she's on Santa's good list! ;)

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
