  • Welcome to my blog!

    Ever since I was ten years old and was gifted my first Polaroid camera by my parents, I have lived life "through the lens". I was enamored by light and capturing moments in time, even way back then. It was always my intention to be an artist. At first I followed a commercial art education, and then moved towards architecture but it wasn't until my first child was born and I purchased my first professional film camera, a medium format mamiya (boy that makes me sound old) that my vision, the medium and the results married together seamlessly, I had found my heaven! Photography, and in particular the photography of people gives my artistic thoughts and visions an outlet which lets others see the world the same way I do, for that second in time. Photography shines a light into the soul and captures the true spirit, I will never cease to be amazed by and drawn to this most powerful medium. I hope that my journey with the camera conveys the story that I intend, life is precious and these moments are gone in the blink of an eye. Make sure your precious moments live on for generations to come.

Chicago Newborn Photographer…Sleepless in Naperville

What a beautiful chubby little guy!  He was wide awake and would have nothing to do with falling asleep.  He wanted to see everything that his big brother was doing.  Being one month old makes it more difficult to get sleepy scrunched up newborn images. At this age they know that there are things to see in this world and also realize that they can spread out and take up some real estate :).  Typically our goal is to get newborn images at around one week of age.  But circumstances happen.  If a newborn or mom has a longer stay in the hospital or if they are unable to be around people right away, the session needs to be put off to a later date.  That certainly doesn’t mean that you won’t get beautiful images.  I think this little guy proves that.  What a sweetheart for letting us scrunch him up for a couple of shots.  Certainly very patient with us.

Big brother was so patient while we waited for his baby brother to fall asleep.  It was now his turn to join in on the fun.  Look how much they look alike.  They are definitely brothers.

Mommy brought his Baptism gown for some pictures and look how precious he looks in it.  This was his Daddy’s gown that was made by his Grandmother.  The most amazing thing is that it’s made from fibers from Banana leaves.  How amazing!

What a beautiful family with super sweet boys.  Congratulations Delacruz family!  You are one lucky family.

Naperville Yorkville Newborn Photographer…Itty Bitty Newborn

Another Cute itty bitty newborn!  Be still my heart!  This little guy was just so tiny and sweet.  Even as tiny as he was, he wasn’t about to miss a thing.  We had an extremely hard time getting him to sleep.  He didn’t want to miss a thing.  We had to pull out all of our newborn photography tricks.  After quite awhile he would nod off and take a cat nap.  That’s when would sneak in a few shots.  Both mom, grandma and big sis were very patient while we waited for sleepy eyes.  I’m so glad that they did because I think it was worth waiting for.  The end result was newborn perfection.

It was so hard moving this cute little guy around because he would wake up between poses.  With some patience we won the battle and captured some more pictures of this sweet little face.

Chicago Hinsdale Newborn Photogapher…Chunky Newborn Session

2014 has blessed Alicia’s Photography with lots of Newborns!  As I’ve mentioned before, I LOVE ME SOME NEWBORNS!  This little chunky monkey made my job so easy.  He slept like a champ and was so poseable.  Take a look at his chubby cheeks and luscious lips.  It was so hard to let him go at the end of the session.  This photographer mommy is obviously missing her little ones.  Having all 3 of my children in their teens now is causing me to have baby envy.  That’s another reason to love being a photographer in Naperville because I am blessed with lots an lots of newborns in the studio to fill my aching heart.  This is not the first time that I have photographed a little one from the “B” family.  Baby Jack is the second newborn and third child in the family to be photographed by Alicia’s Photography.  I have been blessed to photograph this family for several years and I just love catching up and watching their family grow.  My clients are friends to me and even though a year may go by before I see them, we make sure to keep in touch during the year through facebook or email.  The “B” family is extra special to me and catching up was such a gift!

Doesn’t that little hat look adorable on this sweet boy?!  Big boy Jack barely fit inside my bucket for his newborn shots.

I love when moms and dads bring special newborn hats and blankets for the newborn session.  This little bear hat was just perfect!
