Chicago Unicorn Pictures mini sessions are here! These are happening on July 13th, we have collaborated with the very amazing Foundations Farm. Make sure to click on their link for some more information on them, Vanessa who owns Foundations farm is truly one of the kindest souls i have met.
“Foundations Farm is a “everything horse” facility. From life coaching to event hosting, birthday parties to riding lessons, simple tours to all day retreats… If you love horses, you are in the right place!”
Savvie the Unicorn is the kindest and sweetest horse that I have ever met. The connection between her and the kids is just such an amazing scene to witness. She loves cuddles and of course peppermints as well 🙂 All floral crowns are included in the sessions as well, we color coordinate them with each outfit. If we don’t have a color crown that coordinates we make a custom crown for your session.
The kids truly use their imaginations in these gorgeous mini sessions and have so much fun! They leave giggling and can’t wait to come back and visit Savvie again. We have dresses for the girls to choose from and we coordinate outfits for boys as well. All props are included, we always welcome for your little ones to bring their most favorite stuffed animal toy or blanket as well. We love to personalize these sessions.
We love when whole families join us and create magical memories as well with Savvie! These are memories of artwork that will be passed down from generation to generation. Birthday sessions have also been done with these and used for home decor, party decor as well as Unicorn birthday invitations.
Lake County Fishing Mini’s are here! I am so excited to announce that we will once again be having our award winning fishing mini’s! They will be happening through out the month of July!
These sold out within two weeks last year. They are so magical and the perfect piece for your home as wall art. These pieces will surely be treasured for generations to come.
We will also be having water fairy mini’s for little girls! We have dresses for them to wear and for boys, we will coordinate outfits for the Fishing Mini’s. I am so excited about these water mini’s, they will be taking place in my Mundelein studio. This would also be great for siblings!
Here you will find all of the details for the sessions and when they should be done!
Welcome! My name is Mila and I am a Chicago Newborn Photographer! Milamemories Photography is located in Mundelein, IL (Lake County) and sees families all through the Chicagoland area. I am so excited for you to come in and experience having your newborn, older baby and family photo session with me, and I know you will adore all of your images for generations to come!
When to book your Chicago Newborn Photographer?
Let’s face it, you’ve just had a new baby and you will want this time to be really relaxed and easy. That is why it is so important to book your newborn session ahead of time. Newborn sessions are done within 7 – 14 days of your little one’s birth. Within that time you do not want to scramble around by trying to find a photographer that you love, and that fits your style. Newborn sessions should be booked months in advance of due dates. Each session is planned carefully to make sure everything coordinates beautifully and everything goes seamlessly.
Photographing newborns and families is what gives me life! To be able to capture these memories for parents and for the little one to have and share when he/she is older and has little ones! It just makes my heart so full of joy! I am so honored to be able to share my creativity and talent with the families that choose me as their photographer.
We create timeless images with gorgeous tones and color to them, that will go so beautifully with your walls and through out your home decor. Please visit our facebook page to see more of our style https://www.facebook.com/milamemoriesphotography/
How to book your session?
Your favorite Chicago Newborn Photographer is just an email or phone call away! We try to get back to all messages within 24 hours. Contact me as soon as you have a due date to ensure that you can get into our calendar as we book out months in advance. We do limit the number of newborns we take on per month, so that we can 100% ensure that all babies can be seen within 7 – 14 days of their birth.

Hi my name is Mila and I am a fine art photographer who specializes in maternity, newborns, children and families.
Happy Monday! I am so excited to share the very first week of Memory Keeping Monday with you guys! As a photographer and a mama, memory keeping is a huge passion of mine in addition to photography of course, but photography and memory keeping go hand in hand. When i work on each session with a family, I try to capture your little ones true smiles and giggles, I try to capture the curious look on their face when they see something for the first time or when they are using their imaginations in one of my setups. Do you know what especially tugs at my heart? The way that little ones look at their mama, and the way their mama looks back at them. Both are each others everything, truly each others world! This is the look, the memory, the feeling that I want to capture in images and hope that generations from now. Our grand kids and great grand kids will feel the love that their mom and dad had for you and vice versa all through an image, because that and memories is what we are left with. That is why memory keeping is so important IMO and true memory keeping, not just say cheese and smile kids, while yes it is super cute to see your kids smile in pictures. It doesn’t tell the whole story of who your child is and what they liked and who they were at this age. This is where memory keeping comes into play, there are so many different versions of memory keeping and so many different things you can do, you just have to find what works for you ❤️ So, grab a cup of coffee / tea and come join me at 8:15am today to discuss a few different ways of memory keeping. I will be live on IG stories as well to discuss and answer any questions ✨
Today we are talking about…tadadada….printing images 🖨. There are two different types of pictures to print IMO. The first being images that you get from your professional photographer. These images IMO should not be printed at a box store. They should be printed from your photographer to make sure that you get the highest quality prints that you can; this also ensures that the colors are true to what your photographer edited them to be. We spend hours & hours editing (well at least I do) images and when we see that big box stores turn them orange, green, or even yellow it stings a little haha. For real though you chose your photographer based on their style (or at least most of why you choose them) and you want the images, you get back and print to look like that. Next, there are the pictures that we take on our phones, selfies, a cute moment of our little ones. These images are 150% okay to print wherever you like, most likely you will not be hanging these up or giving them out as gifts (all though you may if they are super cute), I chose to buy a small picture printer. It only prints up to a 4 x 6 print, but you can print multiple 2 x 3 copies on one sheet. This way is so much easier for me when i have an extra minute (which does not happen too often, let’s get real), I can print the image I want when I want, put it in my journal, jot down a sentence or two about it and move on and feel great about it. If I had to go to the store, I would probably wait until I had a bulk order. Then print them, at that point, I would get overwhelmed with the number of images I need to journal about and also may forget what I wanted to say about them (this can be avoided by journaling first and then just putting the image down) and most likely not do it. The printer I chose was a #canonselphy (visit my stories to take a peak of it later today). It is under $100, and you can get it at @target, @amazon, etc. I have had it for a week and have loved it so far, this tool is invaluable to me for memory keeping and will help me stay on track! I hope this helped answer some questions on printing, what you should be printing and where. Drop any questions you have below or as always feel free to message me 😘 Also if you have an image printer at home let us know in the comments which one you have and if you love it.
