Chicagoland Family Photographer | Long Grove

Recently, I photographed sweet baby Zachary for his 6 month photo session. As a Chicagoland family photographer, I do love a sitter session! Especially when the sitter is as adorable as Zachary is! Photographers love seeing their newborns, and watching them grow up! At a sitter session, babies show off their skills, sitting up strong, before they get to that one year cake smash session.

Check out this sweet sitter session!

Here, we started with the cream backdrop

Here, Zachary is so proud showing off his big boy skill of sitting up on his own! And, I absolutely love the adorable outfit Mom picked out for him! I love a baby in suspenders!

Now, we also like to take shots of babies on their tummies for tummy time at a sitter session. Because, this strength in their neck is a new thing for Baby to be proud of! It’s all about showing off baby’s new skills!

As a Chicagoland family photographer, I like to give my clients the option of color and black and white with their images. That way, they can print and display what they like best in their home. Here, I love the outfit Zachary borrowed from my studio to hear, on the soft flokati, for a footsie photo.

I always choose a favorite image from each of my photo shoots. I think this is my favorite! Typically, I use this little bed for newborn sessions. Here, although Zachary is a little baby, not even 1 year old yet, he still looks so big in this tiny crib.

Then, we moved to the wood floor and wall

Now, if you follow my blog, you know I mention this a lot…I love textures! Here, sweet boy is on the wood floor, with some burlap! And, in a cozy little sweater! I love the texture combinations!

And, we had to get one of him with the textures and on his tummy. Sometimes, for a sitter session, babies don’t love being on their tummies. Luckily, Zachary didn’t mind some tummy time!

Oh my goodness, this black and white photo is my favorite black and white photo of the session! Here, I put on this fuzzy teddy bear ear hat, and had him sit in the box. He’s so adorable, and with that little expression on his face! I hope Mom and Dad frame this one!

Again, we used one of my small newborn cribs, and had Zachary sit in the crib. I am loving all the colors of this set up, and love the lip biting face!

And, we had to get some photos of Zachary eating his toes!

To end, we captured one more tummy time photo, as Zachary was so comfortable on the fuzzy blanket!
