Laura Templin Photography

HELLO SUMMER! ... bring it on. Hot sunny days... sandy feet after a day at the beach... trips to the local Dairy Queen. Kids can be kids, and parents can get a (little) break from the fast and furious pace of the school year. Take it all in. It'll be over in the blink of an eye!

While you're at it... consider getting your yearly pictures done now. Beach session, anyone? Maybe consider something new I'm doing called "one shot". For $75 you'll get one shot - beautifully edited and given to you as a digital image AND a 5x7 or 8x10 print. A perfect way to capture their personality now without a full blown session.

There is nothing cuter than a sleeping baby….  Lucky to be able to call this little guy’s grandma a friend, and I just know she’s going to spoil him rotten!



We always talk about that perfect window of time for getting great, sleepy newborn photos as 5-10 days old.  Why?  Because at that age they’re sleeping almost non-stop and are so easy to pose.   Take a look at this little guy… at just 4 days old he was one of our youngest customers ever and definitely one of the sleepiest.   I don’t think he made a peep in the three hours we worked with him…!



This cute lil thing was due on January 1st, but decided to make an early appearance just before Christmas.  Cannot think of a better way for this lucky family to celebrate the holidays!

This lil guy arrived just a few days after Thanksgiving and is sure to make the holidays a little bit brighter for his new family!  Congrats to the “D” family on their beautiful baby boy…

This is about the longest I’ve ever gone without updating the blog!  It’s not that we haven’t been busy… WE HAVE BEEN… and here are just a few of my favorites from the past few months!



Just when his parents thought they had things figured out, this little guy came along to shake things up a bit.  With two boys in the family now, Mom & Dad will have their hands full!  I’m just guessing…

This week I was in Omaha visiting Kelley Ryden and Tracy Raver, and was lucky enough to do a session with baby Audree — the newest addition to Tracy’s family!  Kelley and Tracy are amazing newborn photographers and I think they are the best at what they do.   They have really influenced my style of newborn photography & I learn so much every time I see them.  BIG thanks to Kelley and Tracy for having me this week, and congrats to Tracy on her beautiful new baby girl!

At 15 days old, this baby boy is quite possibly the sleepiest baby we’ve ever worked with.  Nothing could wake him… not even a bottle from his Mom!

It’s that time again!  We are looking for two models to test out new props and poses.  Casting call parents receive a complimentary session and prints.  You must live within 15 miles of Wilmette, IL and newborns must be less than 10 days old.  If you or someone you know just had a baby or is expecting soon, send a note to to learn more about scheduling a casting call session.

This has to be one of the happiest newborns I’ve ever met!  She gave us smile after smile all session long…  Just adorable!
