Welcome to Tiny Tea Photography! I’m so happy you found me!
My specialty is newborn and baby photography. I love everything about adorable little babies and want to capture those precious fleeting moments for you to treasure for a lifetime. I create journalistic photographs that are beautiful and timeless in a casual and fun environment. From the tiny toes and eyelashes of your newborn, to the wobbly legs of your toddler, your memories will be forever captured.
Tiny Tea Photography was named after my little girl, Emma, whom we affectionately nicknamed Tiny Tea. I have been married to the love of my life for eight years and we hope to have many more children. I am blessed that I have been able to turn my passion into a business. Taking unique and distinctive photos for couples and families that they will treasure for years to come is truly gratifying.
One of the main reasons I created a photography business was so I could give families studio quality photographs from the comfort of their homes in an environment that is never rushed. I always come to your home (or a location of your choice for family, maternity, engagement sessions) and set up on location. I think this is especially important for newborns and babies. Being in the comfort of your own home, where you can take breaks to nurse, feed, change, and rock your baby, is so important. Older babies I find are also much more at ease in their own environment and happy babies create wonderful pictures and happy parents! I never rush a session and my clients always know that the baby is the first priority. My newborn sessions typically last three hours, which allows you plenty of time to take breaks as needed to soothe your newborn.
I bring all the props with me and will do a phone consultation with you prior to the session so I can come prepared with all the props you need to create perfect photos for your family. I am very flexible and will even bring props in colors that will match your home décor so that your photos will look wonderful framed on your walls.
I meticulously edit every single photograph in Photoshop, paying particular attention to remove blemishes and blotchy/flaky newborn skin so that your pictures look beautiful without any distractions.
I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, but I will travel in the Chicagoland area.
