Joanna | Neutral + Pink Newborn Session | Champaign County, IL


Meet, Joanna, Katie & Ben’s little pink bundle of joy!  Look at all that hair and perfect porcelain baby skin!  Ah!  I just love newborn babies!

Jonna’s mommy & daddy gave me free reign when selecting props, blankets, headbands etc…for the session.  Sticking true to my love of neutral and muted tones and simple set ups, we came up with 6 (very ambitious), in the hope of doing 3 – 4 of them.  Let me tell you, Joanna is a rock star!  Not only did we get to 4 of the 6 set ups, we got to them ALL!  With the aid of feeding breaks, lots of snuggles and using her pacifier sparingly, we were able to meet all our goals in the allotted time.

Family pictures were another important part of this session, and I couldn’t be happier with the look of natural, relaxed lifestyle images we were able to achieve in the studio.  Ben & Katie used this adorable red heart onsie to announce they were expecting earlier this year on Valentine’s Day! 

Congratulations Katie & Ben, Joanna is simply perfect, and it is already plain to see that you both are completely smitten!


XOXO, Kristin

Show baby Joanna some love!
