The relaxing, stress-free newborn session you and your family deserve.

Hi momma, congrats on expecting a new addition to the family. There are so many things to worry about during this season of life: labor & delivery, will baby come on their own, am I going to be pregnant forever, re-arranging your whole house for a newborn and all of the “stuff” that comes with babies and so much more.  Yet, you’ve found HGP Newborns, so  you’re way ahead of the game in booking a session!

“We had an amazing session with Jen for our newborn daughter.  She made the process incredibly easy, customized the entire session for us, and we literally just had to show up and relax.  Jen and her assistant did the rest and now we have pictures of our daughter we will forever cherish.  Jen with HGP is a rare find… a true Hidden Gem!”- Kara C.

The whole reason I do newborn photography is a) it’s absolutely my favorite genre and most studied specialty, b) but more importantly, I had my first daughter over four years ago and seriously skimped on her newborn pictures and regretted it ever since.  I don’t have pictures of her fingers and curly toes, the flaky skin, her little milk bumps on her nose, or her little rolls she had as a newborn when she slept on me.  While I thought I would memorize those details, or actually get my act together and get a baby book together, I didn’t.  I’ll forever be missing those little details as the weariness of a newborn combined with aches and pains of postpartum recover took its toll.

I so desperately wish I had those images I could print out or even enjoy on Faccebook/Instagram/Timehop today, because even five years later I’ve already forgotten exactly what those little features looked like.  Imagine a decade or two more down the line, and those memories have faded even more.  They’ll never be a part of her baby book, and there will never be gorgeous artwork to share with others or hang on our walls.  Products are a huge part of my brand, I want to walk you through the process of picking out the pieces that will last a lifetime and forever remain a part of your family.

With that said, with HGP, you’re getting so much more than just a photography session.

 You’re preserving all the little things you love about your newborn for decades to come.

Never will you forget the little flakes of skin on their fingers, or the soft fuzz that clings to ears.

The way that your baby’s lashes fan on their cheek.

These are all details that will forever be preserved in your newborn session.

Lastly, you get a custom boutique experience at HGP’s  gorgeous newborn studio just outside Decatur, Illinois.

With one of our newborn sessions, you’ll be able to look back and forever remember how you felt looking at your baby and remember exactly every detail of them in their first weeks earth side.
