Newborn Photography ~ Illinois Baby Photography ~ Serving Lincoln, Springfield, Bloomington & Peoria

Good Morning Everyone!
I am having a great start to 2015 with my Photography Studio. I capture a lot of happy moments both in studio and on location each year, but my Niche is truly with Newborn Babies and then the 3 month through Seniors. I just love children and enjoy all the fun stages they go through growing up. I want to document it all for you, so one day you can have many memories to show them. I also find it important that you print the images and display them all over your home. I remember looking at images of myself and siblings on the walls, in albums and rumaging through tubs of pictures my Mom and Dad had taken over the years. All the memories are a huge part of molding a family. If you do not make it in each year, try to come in every other year and just do a quick half session. It is important you are in pictures with your children too. One day they will appreciate that you did it and they could see how much you enjoyed laughing and playing with them. I have had to really put the camera in other people’s hands and jump in more with my daughter and husband these past five years. I get so busy on the other side of the camera, I forget I need to be in some images too. You may not feel you are at your best, but your children are not going to care about that. Trust me:-)

Children’s Photography ~ Lincoln, Bloomington & Springfield Illinois Photographer

Adorable trio of siblings visited my studio. My Golden Gatsby Scene is an all time favorite set for little girl pictures. The bench used in the painted backdrop set was a project my Husband & Business Partner made from an old 100 year old trunk.

Valentine Mini Sessions ~ Lincoln and Springfield Illinois Photographer

The first Super Sweet Mini Session deal of the year is here.

I do have weekend and weekday available slots during these dates to fit you in for a mini session. This price only happens once or twice a year. It really should read Mini Mini Session. So if you have wanted to try out my studio, this is a good time to come in:-) Here is the first Mini Mini Session of 2015!

There are a few options for backdrops. I hope this helps you to pick out outfits to go with these. I suggest less patterns for the Shabby Love and the Love Languages backdrops because you want your child to stand out. If you like the blown out white backdrop with the wood floor or have that wood floor be a backdrop, then patterns work. The Newspaper drop can go with a lot of outfits. Please contact me with questions or to schedule. Thank you jonae@cheger.comValentine Mini 2015
