Gleam Photography » Chicago Baby and Child Photographer


Maternity sessions | $350
A woman is never more beautiful than when she is carrying a tiny life inside of her! I will help you capture this special time in your life by creating timeless images of you in an outdoor or studio setting.  Maternity sessions are usually done between 28-36 weeks of gestation. Since each woman carries differently, I will help you decide when would be the ideal time for your session.  We will also discuss more specifically during our consultation what you and your family can wear in order to coordinate and make you look like a goddess. Your beautiful belly will be the star of this session!

Newborn sessions | starting at $575
Photographing your brand new baby at this stage of life is a precious memory you will never forget. I love, love, love photographing newborns – their wrinkly skin, soft lips, hazy eyes, and adorable little fingers and toes. Newborns photograph best during the first two weeks of life. I typically photographs infants in my home studio, where I have a large variety of props (hats, headbands, baskets, wraps).  Lifestyle newborn sessions are take place in the comforts of your home and are more documentary in nature.   To book your newborn photo session please contact me in your 2nd or 3rd trimester to ensure availability!

Fresh 48 newborn | $400
During this session, I capture your baby fresh after birth, while they are still wrinkly, hospital tags on, and your emotions are high. We will document all those precious little firsts: first yawn, first time meeting siblings, going home from hospital, or just your first sweet cuddles and kisses.  Fresh 48 sessions last up to one hour and include 15 high-resolution images of your choice.  I do not bring props to this session.  Take a look at the Fresh 48 gallery here.

Family sessions | starting at $400
Known for my natural and romantic style, with each family and child session I strive to capture the raw, emotive moments.  And yes, that will include some pouts or pensive faces because a real moment doesn’t mean all smiles all the time.  My goal is to capture that image which says “that is so my kid!”.  Since children have a natural curiosity for things, I love to take their picture while they are busy exploring and wondering, unaware of my camera.  Family sessions take place in a favorite outdoor location or in your home (lifestyle).  All immediate family members are included. 

Milestone sessions | starting at $300
Portrait sessions for babies from birth to 24 months will capture the amazing changes your little one undergoes in a span of two years. Use this 30-45 minute session to capture a sitting, crawling, and a walking milestone for your munchkin or get some new portraits of your 18 month old for the holidays.  You may also add-on a cake smash to make the milestone session extra special.
