Grace was a delight to capture at her newborn portrait session. She smooshed and posed just right, and won me over with her perfect fuzzy hair, beautiful skin, and yummy little rolls. It is during sessions like her’s I have to remind myself to stop snapping away and end the session – time flies when you are having fun! :)
Handsome Henry was a DREAM model for his newborn session in the studio. He let me mold him from head to toe, including all those cute little fingers and sweet baby toes. His adorable expressions were the icing on the cake. This little love was not only an honor to capture, but a total joy, as well!
Can you imagine how much my cheeks hurt from smiling during this session??? These beautiful souls…the whole family!…had me floating on air and grinning like a fool. These siblings together for example…I melt.
And Miss Julia, so feminine at barely two weeks new. Gorgeous little features like her siblings. Perfect skin glowing in pink. Yep…melted!
And THIS! No bribes. No making too much of a fool of myself. (hehehe) Look at the love and joy. Melting all over again just looking at this!
Look how peaceful and beautiful and oh-so-perfectly round. And she held her little foot like a pro! Sigh…

PRESENTING A UNIQUE NEWBORN WORKSHOP…
I, Francine of Lillybelle Rose Photography, along with Marie of Ally and B Photography are thrilled to offer an exciting newborn photography workshop in the beautiful suburbs of Chicago! Join us for a full day of learning and portfolio building on May 5th, 2018 in my studio in Glen Ellyn, IL. This workshop is a unique opportunity to work with two award-winning newborn photographers with completely different session styles.
Marie will spend the morning with a newborn model, sharing her “Prop only” session flow. That’s right – her sessions are ALL props! Learn how to perfectly use a variety of props with wrapped newborns for quick gallery building and lovely variety. Snap away as she has each photographer capture just the right angles of her beautiful work. Francine will spend the afternoon sharing her beanbag flow, session philosophy and tricks to get real variety in your gallery! You will learn soothing techniques, wrapping, angles, and more. Every attendee will have the chance to sit alongside Francine to capture just the right composition of her little model to add to your portfolio. Marie and Francine will also share their preferred camera settings and talk about their lighting preferences. Lunch is included, and will include lots of Q & A time! After Francine wraps up the beanbag posing, we will sit to discuss editing and open the hour up to more Q & A.
The icing on the cake? Attendees will receive a goodie bag with a value of nearly $150! This incredible “Thank you!” will include a preset from the talented Marie of Ally and B Photography and Francine’s Digital Workflow Bundle!

“Hello Little Mouse. What are you doing? Oh, I see. Are you going to eat that red, ripe strawberry?”
All three of our girls loooooooved “The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the BIG HUNGRY BEAR” by Don and Audrey Wood. Rob would read it to them in the funniest voices, while I was a bit more reserved in my immitation of the bear. Quickly, they joined in reciting the book. As soon as I saw this adorable headband, I thought of the days of bedtime stories and the Little Mouse. The days are long, but the years are short. Read all the pages. Cherish all the moments.
And here is Sanya. Sweetest little mouse around.
Smith spent some adorable moments awake and curious during his newborn session in my Glen Ellyn studio, just outside the Chicago metropolitan area. His sweet expressions went from concerned to entertained, to completely content. Which, of course, means I was grinning like a fool behind the camera for most of his session. :D Just adore my littlest clients…each and every one of them!
Her name is exquisite. Her demeanor is endearing. Her newborn studio session was wonderful. Meet Evangeline.
Did you know Lillybelle Rose Photography offers digital composites? Imagine something like this on the wall of the nursery!
Another composite to add fresh flowers to the arrangement captured during a session last year. Miss E looks lovely in pink, doesn’t she?!?
This nose is waaaaay too kissable for her own good. Hehehe
