This mom delivered at Prentice Women’s Hospital in downtown Chicago and had seen other friends deliver there, too. Some of her lucky friends were able to get a lake view from their recovery room. Every chance we could get while still in the delivery room we would say to the nurses “When she’s in her lake view room…” hoping that would get her the beautiful view. Turns out she got it! So lovely!

Big sisters meeting their new baby brother for the first time.

Checking out all his little features.

It didn’t take long for both sisters to ask if they could hold him.

Nothing but happiness here.

I can’t even! The love!

This is the good stuff people. New life, family love and just love.

Here’s a real treat for you. Baby E made his arrival into this world early¬†on a Thursday morning. Being baby number three he came pretty quickly. Like 4 hour labor from beginning to end. I think mom and dad were just happy that they made it to the hospital in time¬†and that Oma¬†could be there for support.

He was bigger than his two older sisters.

Congratulations now family of 5!

Tomorrow I will post more pictures of his sisters meeting him for the first time.

So we moved into this unit that has a large open concept area that we have divided into a dining area, kitchen, living area and photography studio! We have some pretty awesome natural lighting and it seemed like a waste not to use it for studio work.

These top two pictures are with straight-up window light.


Window plus reflector!

Nothing but continuous light.

I’m really excited about this new addition to my photography offerings. This new studio space is perfect for newborn pictures, head shots, portraits and anything else you can imagine. The best thing is that this space is not controlled by weather conditions! That’s a big deal in Chicago with its unpredictable weather. Woo hoo! If you are interested or have questions about what kind of services I can provide, drop me an email at heatherallisonlove {at} gmail.com.

Thanks to my little family for being my forever test subjects. You’re the best.
