I have had a season full of capturing pregnant mamas, and now the babies are starting to arrive! For some reason, it feels like 2020 has been the year of the boy, so that made capturing the Barnes family even more special– a little girl! This Downers Grove baby girl session was all the pink, snuggly, girly time I could have wished for! Plus, I love any chance to include a pup in a session, and Chloe was the perfect model.

Sean and Erin wanted a mix of shots and styles during this season, some to print and display in their home (of course). And then some dressier, Christmas-ier photos to print for Christmas cards. At home, Downers Grove baby girl sessions don’t always include a dressier option, but I loved that they went for it. The images turned out beautifully, and Brooklyn wrapped in the plaid swaddle made her look just like the gift she is!

Have an idea for a holiday session?  Let’s chat for this year!

Downers Grove Baby Girl Sessions Tell a Story

Baby Brooklyn is the Barnes family miracle baby. My heart ached for the family as I learned about the long journey they have been on trying to build their family. After numerous miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, and fertility treatments, the Barnes family excitedly prepared for baby Brooklyn’s arrival. She arrived nine weeks early and had to spend 46 days in the NICU before they were finally able to bring their precious rainbow girl home.

It’s stories like this that make me so grateful to be able to work with families. Every family is worth celebrating, but when you learn about how hard parents have tried to build their family, it makes Downers Grove baby girl sessions like these even more special. 

Congratulations, Barnes family, on welcoming home your beautiful baby girl! I cannot wait to watch her grow!
