In-Studio Newborn Session | Baby Thomas

Welcome to your family, Thomas!

This was an incredibly special in-studio newborn photography session. Thomas is my great nephew, his daddy Tyler is my nephew! Tyler and his wife Abby welcomed Thomas into their family, and I was so happy to capture these moments for them.

An important part of this session was making sure to pay tribute to Tyler, who is a police officer. We had Thomas hold his badge and hat in a few photos, and they are absolutely precious. I am so proud of my nephew for what he does, and Thomas gets to grow up with an incredible father and mother – who is an amazing ICU nurse. I am so excited to watch Thomas grow, but it was amazing to focus on all the little details like his tiny fingers and toes, and those little newborn expressions I adore.

“You are loved for the boy you are, the man you will become, and the precious son you will always be.”


All sessions with kDarling Photography are photographed on film. What does that mean for you? That means you’ll still receive your images via an online gallery. You’ll still be able to print where you wish or through my professional lab. What will change? I will get to slow down a bit at your sessions, allowing me to pay closer attention to details. We’ll get to know each other better, and we’ll have even more fun! And best yet – you’ll get your session back much sooner! Sound great – you’re excited? Me too!


Photographs tell the story of our families. The good ones, the bad ones, and the ones that take our breath away – they’re all part of our perfectly imperfect stories, and each one is beautiful in its own unique way. I have been telling stories of families just like yours in the central Illinois/Champaign-Urbana area since 2012 with newborn photography. Building lifelong relationships with my clients as their families grow, and telling their ever-changing story, is what makes my heart go pitter-patter. I would be honored to tell your family’s story..  To schedule your next session, please contact kDarling Photography by email or at 217.778.1325.
