I'm so excited you found me and I would love to be your maternity and newborn photographer. When you find out you are expecting, you have lots of things on your mind and your plate. Let me help you not only capture this wonderful part of your life in the most beautiful way, but also take some stress away from you with planning on how to capture and preserve those memories. I will guide you through the process and make sure you feel comfortable, pampered and have the best experience.
My photography journey started over 11 years ago when my youngest son was a toddler. My children were the reason for it. I have always had passion for art and wanted to create photos that would reflect that and my creativity. I love fashion and art and those are the types of portraits that I love to create for you as well. We can work together in creating one of a kind photographs, something that you will cherish for years to come and would be proud to display in your home just like you would a piece of art.  
I have been presented with an Expertise award and voted one of the top newborn photographers in the Rockford IL area three years in a row. I have the knowledge and years of experience in working with babies so I am able to create a safe environment and use soothing techniques to calm the baby to be able to get the beautiful photos you see in my portfolio or on social media. 

Hi, I'm Evelina

Your Luxury Chicago Maternity and newborn  Photographer

If you are looking for more than just photos, you want an experience,  we can work together in creating one of a session for you. Something that you will cherish for years to come and would be proud to display in your home just like you would a piece of art.  

 This is how I approach each session, I view the final product as a piece of art but want to ensure that it is special to you and expresses your emotions and the things important to you at the time of the session. That is why I believe serving my clients by having printed archival heirloom products makes me different. I build relationships with my clients and want them to have memories that will not fade, break down over time and will last for future generations. I do offer digital packages for those who are amazing at printing their memories but the quality of the products I offer is second to none and worth the investment.

 My goal is to take the worry and stress away from you in figuring out what size and crop is best for each photo, what are the latest products that are unique and what will look best in your home. Let me take care of that for you so you can focus on what is most important, your family.   

 In my studio, I have an extensive and always growing collection of props, outfits, hats, headbands for newborns, babies and even older children and maternity and women's gowns so you don't have to worry about what to bring with you. Other complimentary services I offer are styling for senior/ beauty sessions as well as complimentary hair and make up that can be utilized for any session type.  

 My vast knowledge of photoshop helps me enhance photos, add color and bring out the best qualities of the photo to make it stand out. I also use it for those fun newborn poses you see on my page. Most of the newborn shots are composites which are made up from two or more photos for the safety of the baby. Those things can be time consuming and ensure the end product looks amazing and different. I want each client to receive a gallery that is full of creative and one of a kind photos. I understand that I will not be a great fit for every one and if you are looking for someone to just capture your photos for you and hand them over, that is definitely not me but if you are looking for those one of kind, vibrant, high quality photos I am the girl for you :)  

"Evelina always has such a great eye for unique photos and makes you feel very comfortable. I’ve had a maternity session and both of my daughter’s newborn photos through her and every single one is perfect. Her photos are truly a work of art. It’s always hard choosing which ones to frame!"

"EJB is the best in the business! She always captures our family so perfectly - even when we think there is no way she got a good shot with our kids being difficult, she WOWs us every time :) The quality of her photos is amazing, you can tell she takes a lot of time on each photo when editing to ensure each image is perfect. She is also so great with kids of all ages (the baby whisperer of newborns) and will not give up until she gets a smile or two when dealing with toddlers. You won't regret booking with Evelina!"

I went to Evelina for my newborn shoot. She was so great with my daughter. I was worried about her crying and not cooperating for the photos but that worry quickly faded. By the end of the shoot I was so excited to see how they turned out. I brought my own outfit and she had many to use of her own . Many props and backgrounds. She was nothing short of amazing. I was completely satisfied with the whole experience from the interaction, pictures, and quality. Worth every dime.

Evelina was very professional and I enjoyed her package options. I was able to make a payment plan for the price. She did my maternity photos and newborn session and I think they turned out great. Can’t wait to display them on my wall. Thank you Evelina!
