Remi | Fresh 48 Hospital Newborn Session | Peoria and Bloomington IL Birth Photographer

Stephanie and I have known each other for longer than I think I want to admit… 15 ish years? Give or take?

We used to live around the corner from each other as girls. We played volleyball together in middle school. We took advanced art together and had some of the best memories of my k-12 education shared in that one room. We grew as little baby artists together. We felt loss and defeat together… the volleyball team wasn’t all that great. At all. Haha

Life moved Stephanie to Puerto Rico where she and her husband welcomed their first baby into the world. A little early and a little small, he was healthy and strong. When Stephanie and Gio returned back to good old Central Illinois, we met for a session at Cooper Park and had the best time photographing her little family. And now I had the great honor of photographing the next little baby of their sweet family: Remi.

Remi is darling with a perfect little dusting of hair, wrinkling feet and a smitten big brother. Their session was energetic and so wonderfully filled with love. Here’s some of my favorite images from their session!
