Photo Artwork

From Story walls to fine art albums of your baby's first year.

THe luxury experience

As your Chicago newborn photographer I will be there with you every step of the way, from planning your newborn photography session to guiding you with artwork. Simple.

The entire experience working with Cristina was unlike anything I have had before.  From start to finish, Cristina walked us through what to expect, and helped with location and wardrobe styling - Lena was so excited to pick out a dress to wear! On the day of the shoot, she was AMAZING with both of the kids, including making it fun for Lena (which if you know how 3 year olds can be, is not an easy task) 
She makes turning your photos into works of art in your home super easy. 

Family Session

Sarah & Jon

It was such a beautiful day, and our experience was emotional yet peaceful. Cristina worked her magic making us look good and feel comfortable for the first time in a long time.

We will always cherish that day embracing our new little family and holding our precious baby Olive while she slept.

Motherhood session

Marissa & Rich

Cristina’s photos are hard to put a value on...I have and will always highly recommend Cristina, as she has done at least five separate shoots for me and my new family and will always be my go to photographer for all occasions in her field of work.

Amanda & Zac

Cristina Hope offers one-of-a-kind, full service photography. She has taken newborn and family photos for me twice now. She has helped me style my family’s wardrobe, providing me with beautiful and flattering studio wardrobe each time.

I absolutely love the moments in time that she has captured for us and whole heartedly recommend her.
