Newborn Sessions - $350

MY PHILOSOPHY I believe in simple, clean, organic, classic portraiture, a style that focuses on your beautiful baby. Some of my favorite images have no props at all. Just baby. 100% beautiful on their own. This way, they don't get lost in the image. I do have simple props available at the studio, hats and headbands and lots of textures that I like to use.

WHAT TO EXPECT Sessions take place in my studio located in East Peoria Illinois. Sessions are booked Monday through Saturday at 10am. Maximum of 5 newborn sessions per week. Please book your session 3-4 months before you are due, to ensure you get a guaranteed session with me. Email Jonae@cheger.com to see if times are available and view details here.

The Difference

What makes me different in this saturated industry? You can browse my portfolio and let the photos speak to you. If you like what you see, read on, my friend. With my camera, I can tell your story. I find the amazing light, I plan, I connect and I act silly if I need to get those giggles from your children. 

My passion

Capturing those real moments.  The moments where you forget I'm even there and the result is true art featuring your family. I'm in love with those golden back-lit photos but also dig a moody black and white. I am dedicated to providing you with an outstanding, personalized photo session that results in images that you will have a hard time choosing what to print. 

Sessions Offered

My specialty is Newborns, Children, Families and Seniors.  My outdoor sessions offer a mix of posed and candid shots. My laid-back sessions are stress-free and I allow you and your family to be yourselves. Because that's what photos should capture - what is real. These sessions are held early in the morning or close to sunset. Light is everything and that's when it's the most gorgeous. Instead of a one size fits all approach, I offer a couple different types of sessions fit your needs. Lifestyle sessions are designed to capture candid moments in your home and find the beauty in daily life. There is no posing or fake smiles - just raw moments. My goal is to capture your family "as is" and show the personalities of each family member as well as the interactions and emotions between each of you. I swoon over newborn sessions which can be held either in your home or in my studio. I have the training for the posed and prop newborn shots or we can go the lifestyle, story-telling route.  My in-home studio in East Peoria IL. is great to get some updated photos of the kids or small families.
