I can hardly believe my session with the Wilson family was just a few weeks ago– We were just taking maternity pictures in July, and now Maximus (and his beautiful blue eyes) is here! We kept this Downers Grove newborn boy session casual and relaxed and snagged some stunning family pictures in the process.

I have had the pleasure of working with Adam and Nikki a few times in the past couple of years, and have loved the chance to get to know them better and watch their little girl, Olivia, grow. Four weeks ago, Olivia got a promotion to “big sister” when her brother was born.

Olivia and Maximus were perfect models for this intimate Downers Grove newborn boy session– I especially loved being able to capture a few pictures of just the two of them. There’s something so special about the first days of a new sibling-bond. Olivia is taking her job as big sister so seriously, Maximus is a lucky little guy.

Downers Grove Newborn Boy Sessions are a Great Way to Make Memories

The Wilson family opted for a session at their home in Downers Grove. Newborn boy sessions are so special at home. Everybody is a little less tense, and the photos really capture what life looks like during that season. In 20 years, you can look back at these images and instantly be transported back to these days (minus the sleepless nights, of course).

There is something so special about taking some time to have professional pictures taken during the newborn phase. Since your photographer is there to handle the details, your family can just enjoy the time with baby. It’s especially fun with toddlers running around because they bring the extra spark to any session.

Congratulations, Wilson Family! Maximus is a dream! Thank you for allowing me to capture this special Downers Grove newborn boy session!
