Baby Finn | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Baby Finn has to be one of the cutest baby boys I’ve ever seen!  This cute little guy belongs to some long-time clients of mine.  This is their third baby that I’ve photographed, and it’s such a great feeling to see their family grow over the years.  I’ve been thrilled that they’ve come back to me for each baby.  Such an honor!  Little Finn came to my Wake Forest NC newborn studio at three weeks young.  His hair was just amazing, and his features so adorable.  He had a great mix of being awake and sleeping, so we got some photos of those big open eyes, which I always love.  I used some green during his session (one of my favorite colors!), which I think looked so good on him.  And of course some tans and blues, which everyone loves for baby boys.  I think my favorite photos from his session were those of him in the little green bucket.  And that one photo where he’s sticking his tongue out at me — so priceless and funny!! He was a lot of fun to pose!

Baby Rico | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, March 9th, 2018

I’m excited to share with you all my newborn session with baby Rico!  Don’t you just love the name Rico? It’s adorable, and fits him so well! I met Rico when he was an itty bitty two weeks old.  He has THREE big sisters, who obviously just adore him!  I can only imagine how much they’re going to love on him and take care of him throughout his life!  He’s very lucky!  And can we just discuss Rico’s cheeks for a second?!  Check them out for yourself – they’re perfectly plump and kissable.  I’m sure his mom enjoys planting some kisses on those!  I used some greens and blues for him, and they just looked fabulous on his perfect, creamy skin!  Rico was so sweet at his session, and I enjoyed spending time with him and his family.  Here are all of my favorites from Rico’s newborn session.

Baby Natalie | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

Sweet baby girl Natalie is next up on the blog!  I was excited to have another girl after a string of boys.  And actually, after Natalie’s session, I photographed five boys in a row!!  They are yet to be blogged, but you’ll see them here soon!  🙂  I swear I get so many baby boys, which is great.  But I also REALLY love baby girls, and pulling out the pinks and purples, and the headbands and sweet girl outfits.  So… thanks for breaking up my boy streak a little, Natalie!  Natalie’s Mom requested some purple to match their nursery, so of course I obliged.  I hadn’t used purple in a while during a session, so it was nice to get to do something different!  Natalie was super precious at three weeks young!  So dainty and her fuzzy hair was just perfection.  I used one of my favorite newborn outfits from Mia Joy on Natalie, and not only did it fit her so nicely, but it looked like it was made just for her!  So, let’s get to the pictures!  Here are some of my favorites from Natalie’s Raleigh baby session!

Baby Cooper | RALEIGH NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Another baby boy to share with you all!  Soooo many baby boys lately!  This is little Cooper at just nine days old.  He is the third baby I’ve photographed for this family.  They’ve had two girls, and have now finally added a baby boy to the mix!  His mommy has had to go from pink everything to blue this time around!  It really means a lot to me to have families coming back to me again and again as they expand.  I love to meet the new additions and to see how the older kids have grown.  Little Cooper looks a lot like his older sisters did as newborns.

One of my favorite things about Cooper was his crazy amazing dimples when he’d flash a smile.  I mean, they don’t even look real, they’re just too much!  I loved them.  And seeing how adored he was by his big sisters was just so sweet.  You may notice we did a lot of wrapped shots on Cooper, because it was the only way he was happy during his session.  He just likes to be snuggled all the time!  And his pictures are just way too cute, so it was all good!  Here’s all of my favorites from baby Cooper’s newborn session in Wake Forest, NC.

Baby Emmett | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

Baby boy Emmett was so much fun to meet and work with!  We did his session back in November, so we incorporated a few Christmas shots for their Christmas cards.  I had been really looking forward to meeting baby Emmett and his family!  He was a rainbow baby – a baby born after a loss.  So we paid tribute to his big sister during the session with a few rainbow themed photos.  This was such a special family, and a special session.  Emmett did really great, and let me get all the shots (and more) that we wanted during his Raleigh newborn session.  He was a joy!
