Zenfolio | Laughing Boys Studio, Joliet IL photographer | Newborn Investment

Newborn photography is an important investment and choosing a newborn photographer can be a stressful task. As a mother of two boys, I've been there! My promise is to customize our session to meet your needs. Not only are we fully equipped but we also have studied the latest in newborn photography safety. I always have an assistant on hand to aide in posing but to also help the session go as smooth as possible. We invite our parents to sit back and relax while we mold and shape your little one into timeless poses. Along with our experience, we also have a large selection of props and newborn accessories to complete your newborn's look and prior to our session we will stylize the session to your likes and dislikes. We invite our parents to share their ideas and suggestions. 

After our session I spend a large portion of my time perfecting your images. This includes post production and hand editing to select the images for your online gallery. This process takes roughly 2 weeks. During this time, we will post sneak peaks on our facebook page. Once the images are completed, we will provide you with a online password protected gallery to view and download your images from. Our packages also include a printing release. 

 

****We provide images in color and black and white and include basic retouching of blemishes at no additional cost.
