Congratulations! You are about to embark on a magnificent journey. Whether this is your first or fifth baby, I am truly honored you have taken the time to consider Baby Photo Love, in preserving these wonderful memories and portraits for you.
Hello & Welcome! My name is Lauren Ickes and I am the lead photographer and owner of Baby Photo Love. I have been working as a professional photographer for almost 20 years now. I’ve worked in the medical field as a medical photographer/illustrator and ran a successful wedding photography business for 13 years. I’ve always believed the most important day in an individual’s life was the day they married. In 2012 that all changed for me the day I gave birth to my daughter, and I’ve been specializing in baby photography ever since.
Baby Photo Love is an In-Your-Home newborn photography experience capturing beautiful-artistic portraits of your baby’s first days in the safety and comfort of your home. I bring everything needed to create the lovely portraits you see on my website, Instagram & Facebook page. Props, backdrops, wraps, hats, baby hair accessories and adorable outfits are all included, you don’t have to worry about a thing! And you don’t have to leave your home with your precious infant baby.
With a fine art background, my philosophy for every client is to obtain beautifully crafted, heirloom art. Your family is a precious gift and the moments captured will be your forever cherished memories, along with future generations. When you book a session, I will share my favorite printing labs that offer outstanding quality products at their wholesale prices. Making an investment in portraits is a personal choice, but it’s an investment truly worth making. You will love these portraits today. In five years when your baby is starting kindergarten, you will look at them and love them even more. Imagine how you’ll feel as you are sifting through your baby’s album while they’re getting ready to go off to college… This is one of the few investments you will ever make in your lifetime, that will appreciate in value!
Becoming a parent is the beginning of everything! From this day forward, everything changes.
When I’m not taking photos, you’ll probably see me bopping around town with one or all three of my children. We love our community so we’re always out enjoying the beautiful parks, libraries & museums. If you see us, please say hello – we love making new friends wherever we go!
