What a blessing to be able to take pictures of this tiny bundle of joy for our first photo session of the year! When Cora and Will told us back in November that they wanted us to photograph their baby once she was born, we were so excited. It was a pleasure to meet little Eleanor, and we tried our best to capture her beauty in these images. I do have to admit that newborn sessions are some of my favorite, especially if the baby is sleeping (which sometimes happens and other times doesn’t). Will & Cora were so accommodating, and it was great getting to know them better during the session too!
P.S. – my favorite part of the entire shoot can be seen in her “portrait” below (the fifth photo down); you can see my reflection and her mother’s reflection in Eleanor’s big round eyes. So awesome!
In my last post, I summarized the story behind these pictures. I also said that I would post this blog entry last night, but I wanted to leave a little more time for people to enjoy the first set of images. Here are the other 4 pictures from that set – one of them would be considered an “HDR” image (the first one). Hope you like them!
Since I made everyone wait so long for this second installment of Chicago Beauty, I’ll give you two for the price of one. The previous post in this series describes my intention for posting these images. The sky was a wonderful painting of many colors that evening, and I couldn’t have been in a better location to observe it. I’ll have another couple images coming your way in tomorrow night’s post. And I promise to actually post them tomorrow night. In the mean time, enjoy these images, leave a comment, and share with others using Facebook and Twitter!
