Chicago Newborn Photography

Fitting Photographic Style | Juliana Leigh Photography

My photographic style is a mixture of artistic and photojournalistic styles, largely determined by the age of the child that I have the pleasure of working with. The photographic techniques I use are different for a child who is 18 months old, compared with a newborn. Children that are older have high energy levels, so the style is necessarily more photojournalistic. For newborns, they are quite still while sleeping, so the photos are able to be more artistic in nature. I prefer a modern take regardless, so the resulting portraits always feel fresh.

Juliana Leigh Photography Investment | Chicago Maternity and Newborn Sessions

Photography sessions are called an investment for a reason – it’s saving something today that is so special for the future. I offer two different newborn Session Packages for your investment. The first is the Sloan Package, which consists of a Maternity and a Newborn Session. The Price includes a disc with 20-25 edited images for each session. Next, there’s the Liv Package, which includes sessions for ages 3 month, 6 month, 9 month and 1 year. The package comes with a free disc with 20-25 edited images each, and the 1 year session is free as well.

Chicago Newborn Portraits | Newborn Portrait Session

Newborn portraits involve a delicate process. The comfort of newborns, and that of parents, is of the utmost importance for Juliana Leigh Photography. There are a variety of ways to photograph newborns to ensure that they remain comfortable throughout the session. I’ll create a soothing atmosphere with heat, noise, and swaddling cloths, making sure your baby is comfortable and secure.

Comfortable and Cute Props | Chicago Newborn Photography

Once asleep, I take fantastic shots of your baby’s sweet and peaceful face, and then get some incredible prop shots too. Using soft blankets and cute baby hats goes a long way in creating adorable photographs that are simultaneously gentle. Getting up close with macro shots on fingers and toes helps parents remember the little details that change in a blink. Lighting is one of the most important components of any photograph, and can be set up in such a way that newborns are utterly content.
