Chicago Studio Maternity Photos | Sheradin and Tom

Iykyk, but studio maternity sessions with my Chicago mommas have been poppin’ off in the last year. Absolutely linking every single one that I have shot recently because they are too good not to share. Sheradin and Tom were no exception to this the other week at A Darling Studio in Wicker Park. The one thing all of these sessions have in common is that they were thoughtfully curated by each couple/mom – they all shared their pinterest boards with me beforehand and had visions for their sessions. Studio photo sessions; whether they are engagements, headshots, couples or maternity, is the time where I can shift away from the documentary approach I take to wedding day and focus on a stylized approach. I provide a bit more direction in these sessions, we discuss outfit/background selection, and we’re intentional about lighting.

I photographed Sheradin and Tom’s elopement last spring, and was absolutely thrilled when Sheradin reached out shortly after announcing they were expecting a baby girl. She showed up to their session in the cutest Anthropologie dress (it’s sold out and no longer available on their site, but linking it used here) for more formal photos, then changed into jeans and tees for their second look. Scroll to see some of my favorites from their session!

Had to have her twirl in this dress to capture some of the movement in the fringe! So dreamy.

hi, i'm ARIELLE.

You can usually find me home with my golden retriever or day dreaming of my next trip to Italy.

I am a firm believer in living life with purpose and never missing the opportunity to experience something new. The Meyers-Briggs test says I am an ESFJ, and my friends say I am the person they come to when they need comfort, advice, or fresh baked goods. I consider myself an empath, so special moments you share with your loved ones will likely get me all teary eyed and sentimental. I am not here to pretend life is picture perfect, but to capture genuine emotion and create timeless pieces of art to decorate your home. I’m constantly striving for perfection, but have a calming personality and am relatively easy going. 

When the camera is not around my neck, I am a big home body. I love hanging on the couch with my dog, making pasta, breads and desserts from scratch, squatting 400+ pounds in the gym, or plotting my next trip outside of the US. As a direct descendant of Italian immigrants, I feel most at home in Italy (and speak a bit of Italian, too.)



Arielle has photographed over 150 weddings across 12 states, 5 countries, and 3 continents. While her heart beats for coastal and countryside Italian weddings, she is willing to travel anywhere and everywhere to document your day.
