Baby Harper ~ Madison Newborn Photography ~ Chicago Lifestyle Film Photographer

Oh, friends, today’s post is an extra special one!!! Krista and Bill are our best friends and I’ve known them since way back in our crazy college days when we were still TEENAGERS! Crazy. I’m so thankful to have these two in our lives and that we’ve gotten to be alongside each other through all of the seasons of life – college, dating, engagements, weddings, and now baby!!

You probably remember their beautiful maternity session as they waited for their first baby to arrive, and now I’m over the moon excited to share their newborn photos with you!! It worked out that I was up in Madison shortly after they welcomed their baby girl into the world, and I’m so thankful for that!!

I’ve been itching to shoot a newborn session on film, so I thought my dear friends were the perfect opportunity to do that. 🙂 Below are some of my favorites (obviously I had trouble narrowing these down!) from their session!

World, I give you the beautiful, immensely loved, Harper Winter Kohls. xoxo




Obsessed!!! Love them all so! xoxo Have a wonderful weekend, friends. xoxo
