Baby Lochlan | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

I have a stunning family full of little boys to share with you today!  Their boy’s ages and their family dynamic is so similar to mine, it just blew my mind!  They were a family of five, with three boys with unique personalities, who are loved so much.  It was really sweet to see.  We got some great photos of all three boys that I found so sweet and touching.  And of course lots of great photos of little Lochlan by himself.  This family just melted my heart!  Here are all of my favorites from Lochlan’s first baby session!

Baby Jase | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

Baby Jase was such a tiny one for being 14 days old.  He was so sleepy and cute too!  I had met his Mommy a few times before, so I was excited to see her and catch up with her!  I’m excited for her on this journey into motherhood.  Tiring, but so rewarding!  And for Jase’s newborn session, she requested red, which isn’t a color I use very often, so it was fun to switch things up.  And I really loved the red!  I think it’s just so stunning.

I wanted to also mention that I’ve started offering a newborn “mini” session.  I get asked SO often by parents to just take a few photos, but my full newborn sessions are usually 3 hours of shooting, plus lots of setups and props and variety.  So I figured I’d give a try to something just a little shorter and it’s working really well so far.  The mini sessions are one hour long, and I can usually fit in one prop setup (in a bucket, basket, etc.), along with a few poses on a blanket.  And then there are lots of different angles, lots of different hats switched out, wraps switched out, etc. so we can still get some variety.  And these sessions result in about 15 photos (or more).  For now I’m trying it out as an all-inclusive session – where you pay a certain price and it includes a download of all of the digital files.  So if this is something you think might work for you, don’t hesitate to ask me more questions!  (melissadevoephotography@gmail.com)

And here is cutie little Jase for you!

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 Penelope | RALEIGH NORTH CAROLINA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Today I’m sharing my newborn session with baby girl Penelope, who was 15 days old when I met her.  She was soooo very cute and tiny.  I adore baby girls! She has a handsome and very sweet big brother too.  We got the cutest shots of the two of them together, along with some great family photos that I love! Sibling and family shots are always included at no extra cost during my sessions, and I always tell new moms they won’t regret getting in a few photos.  Your kids will treasure these photos when they get older, so do it for them! 🙂

Here are all of the highlights from sweet baby Penelope’s Raleigh, NC newborn session!!

Baby Ivy | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NC NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, March 24th, 2017

This next little lady has the most beautiful name, Ivy.  She came to see me for her Raleigh newborn photo session when she was three weeks old. She was born back in November, and her parents asked for some Christmas set-ups, so we did a few really cute ones.  I just loved baby Ivy in front of the twinkly lights backdrop and between the tiny Christmas trees.  She was absolutely perfect and had a beautiful head of hair.  Everything I put on her looked gorgeous on her!  She is a stunning baby girl!  Here are my favorites!

Baby Evie | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

Happy new year everyone!! I hope everyone enjoyed their fall and the holidays!  This poor blog of mine has been a little neglected, but I’m hoping to get caught up eventually.  🙂  I have so many beautiful baby sessions to show you all!

This little sweetheart is baby Evie, who was 10 days old for her newborn photo session.  She is absolutely beautiful and was such a perfect little model for me in my studio in Wake Forest, NC.  She had the sweetest little features, and I made sure to capture those tiny little toes, eyelashes, and her long fingers (she’s going to be tall, I think!).  She looked so adorable tucked into my tiny little baby bed. I love that prop – one of my favorites of all time!  I got so many different poses – props, wrapped, unwrapped, the macro shots, the parent shots.  She was a perfect angel. Just love all of her photos!

Baby MJ | RALEIGH NC NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

I want to introduce you to little MJ, aka Marty Junior.  He is such an incredibly beautiful baby boy!  He was 11 days old when I got to cuddle him during his Raleigh newborn photo session.  As you’ll see, we did some parent and family photos during MJ’s baby session. Parents are always welcome to be in a few photos during newborn sessions at no extra charge.  I absolutely encourage everyone to take advantage of this!  It doesn’t matter what you look like – your babies will grow up and thank you for these photos.  They’re heirlooms to be passed down.  So just do it! 🙂

I recently got a new little posing chair for babies, and aaaaaah isn’t it the cutest little thing?!  I love how sweetly MJ sat right in it and snuggled his rabbit.  I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it and can’t wait to play around with it more!

Little MJ was such a sweet baby boy, and I just adore all of his photos!  Here are some of my favorites from his Raleigh newborn baby photo session.

Baby Bryce | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

I had been really looking forward to meeting baby Bryce after doing his Mommy’s maternity photos a few months earlier. She was beautiful and it was a stunning Raleigh maternity photo session.  The link is here in case you missed it! 🙂 I got to snuggle baby Bryce when he was eight days old, and he was a perfect little nugget.  Mommy asked for blues and greys, so that’s what we did!  And I love the result. Bryce was a gorgeous baby boy, with the perfect round cheeks and the right amount of squish!  So happy this family chose me to capture these memories during such a special time in their lives. They have some beautiful Raleigh newborn portraits to pass down for generations!

Baby Virginia | RALEIGH NC NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Just a quick scheduling note — I’m currently booking newborn baby photo sessions for September 2016 and later. Please be sure to contact me as early as possible to ensure you get a spot in my fall schedule!

Today I’m sharing a precious newborn baby girl, little Virginia! It’s my first time photographing a baby named Virginia, and I really adore that name!  Her mommy and daddy drove a long ways to come see me in my studio in Wake Forest, NC, which is always an honor. I’m so glad they chose me as their photographer and entrusted me to capture Virginia’s newborn portraits.  Her mommy requested both green and purple for the session, so as you can see, we did plenty of both colors! We also got some amazing outdoor shots, despite it being an unusually cool spring morning.  But what mommy wants, mommy gets!  And baby Virginia cooperated perfectly outdoors so I could get the shot!  Virginia’s mommy also brought along some very special quilts that are family heirlooms, so as you’ll also see we incorporated the quilts into the Raleigh newborn session too.  So many great shots from Virginia’s gallery, it was hard to narrow down my favorites!
