This beautiful couple called us for some newborn pictures with their 6-day old baby. Many parents tend to realize/recognize the importance of capturing their tiny baby within the first 2 weeks of their life – only after seeing their baby! Time flies and they do not want to miss capturing those precious moments. We, of course, work 7 days a week and worked hard to accommodate them right away. Thanks to our repeat client(s) who were willing to reschedule their family session – they are always very sweet and flexible – we were able to bring this beautiful munchkin to our studio the very next day!
She was fully fed and peaceful throughout the entire duration of the session. Mom and dad had brought several heirlooms and fun props that they wanted to incorporate in the pictures – mom’s wedding dress, wedding rings, best friend knitted hats and leg warmers – none of it was planned. But we had a fantastic time with the baby – we captured so many amazing baby pictures, used every single prop they had brought for their baby and voila! Check out these beautiful images…
Here’s what the parents had to say about their Newborn Photography experience on Yelp.
Dad’s Perspective …
Magic! Pure Magic!
Imagine a couple in the West Town neighborhood of Chicago, suddenly deciding that their first child was too cute not to get pictures done by a newborn photographer. So baby photography is a very special expertise and Sri and Jana must be the benchmark for perfection.
In our 1-hour session this team took great care of our first born child… ensuring she was safe, cozy and comfortable. It was like magic watching Jana carefully pose our daughter among well thought out props while Sri gave some artistic direction and took the photos. They even incorporated the personal items we brought like our rings and bit of my wife’s wedding dress.
Through the entire process, Sri gave clear directions and explanations from how to prep our baby before and what was happening during the shoot. All the while, my wife and I relaxed and enjoyed watching the show….a nice break for new, sleep-deprived parents.
And finally, this highly sought after, overly talented, artists who specialize in babies under 2 weeks old have great customer service. Our proof, final touchups and final DVD were done quickly and reliably. I was really surprised at how well Sri handled me as a customer and his dedication to delivery.
My wife points out that I wrote this entire review with out mentioning the actual pictures. Personally, I could not be happier with the quality and creativity of the final photos, but that does not cover it. Check out his website or the pictures posted with reviews… they speak for themselves.
Mommy’s perspective on Yelp…
Getting our newborn photos from Sri and Jana was a magical experience.
When your special little one is born it’s an adventure and we really wanted to capture her first days with good baby photography–we didn’t want to take chances becuase we can’t get those magical moments back during the first few days when this kind of photography works best. That’s why we choose to work with Skri and Jana–and because their studio is close to our West Town home meaning we didn’t have to drive our infant all over the city for the photo shoot.
How it works
– You bring your baby (under 2 weeks old) to Sri and Jana’s studi
- They have a professional setup for baby photography (it’s super warm, has proper white noise to keep baby asleep, etc.)
- Jana has all the props (baskets, hats, scarves and stuffing) needed to make the best pics for your baby
- Sri has the photo equipment and lighting all setup so the photos are easy to take
Following the shoot we had an amazing set of photos to cherish our baby with. But the unexpected benefit was walking out of the shoot feeling energized and at peace. Being a new parent can be stressful and this photo shoot gave us an hour to escape and just enjoy how beautiful our newborn is. We didn’t just get great photos we also got a wonderful experience and an unexpected memory with our baby.
We take great care in making sure every pose, every finger placement and every expression of the baby is perfect and the final product is as beautiful as the baby itself.
Don’t miss getting your newborn pictures taken…the first 2 weeks is the most precious time to photograph a baby’s life and it goes by so quickly. Come to us and preserve those memories forever! Call us at 312.493.5497 to book your session.
