Baby Beckett | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Handsome baby Beckett!  I just love his name, and I believe it’s my first time photographing a baby named Beckett!  He was 11 days old for his newborn photo session.  And absolutely adorable and perfect.  He’s baby number one for this family, and with how cute and happy he was, I think they should go for a few more. 🙂  I did some setups I loved with little Beckett — some of my favorites were the taco pose on the grey blanket, and of course the ones of him snuggling the bear in that tiny chair!  And he posed so sweet and perfectly in that blue wire basket too.  I was really loving his black and whites also, so I included a lot of those here.  Sooooo much cuteness!! Here are ALL of my many favorites!

BABY STELLA | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NC NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

Happy July everyone!  I’m right in the thick of summer vacation with my little boys.  Trying to work my way through blogging and social media shares during our summer vacation, though!!  If any of you are on Instagram, I post a lot of session photos there, so please follow me at http://www.instagram.com/melissadevoephotography

Sweet little Stella is today’s feature for the blog.  Her Mommy asked for some grays and purples, which are two colors I love and have fun using!  Baby Stella was such a tiny little sweetheart for her newborn photo session.  I absolutely loved her in my little baby bed, especially that big huge yawn she gave me!!! It’s soooo cute!!  Check out all of my favorites of baby Stella below, taken in my Raleigh newborn photography studio.

Baby Emma | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, June 5th, 2017

The very sweet little Emma is next up on the blog!  She came for her newborn photo session at a perfect 2 weeks old, and she was wonderful and sleepy! I was so excited to see Emma’s family again after photographing maternity portraits for them in 2015, as well as newborn photos for their first baby that fall.  You may remember the cute baby Joseph, and now they have a sweet little girl to round out their family!  For Joseph’s newborn portraits, we used my little blue bed, and so we pulled it out again for little Emma.  I think it turned out SO cute! Here are aaaaall of my many favorites from Emma’s Raleigh newborn session!

Baby Wyatt | RALEIGH DURHAM WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

I can’t believe it’s June already!!  This year is flying by.  My kids will be out of school soon for the summer, and I have just a few more sessions until I’m on vacation with them.  I typically take a really light workload over the summer months since it’s hard to shoot sessions and edit photos while I have all three home with me.  I’m hoping maybe this summer I’ll get caught up on blogging all of my sessions, but that might be wishful thinking. 🙂

This next sweet baby boy I’m sharing is little Wyatt at just 7 days old!  He has a fabulous and adorable big sister who enjoyed getting in some photos with her baby brother.  And Mom and Dad brought a special quilt along, as well as some other props that were sentimental to them.  Wyatt was kind enough to show us those big beautiful eyes of his for a lot of photos, and I always find these shots to be some of my favorites.  Here’s a few from Wyatt’s newborn photo 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 Declan | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NC NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

I have such a special session to share with you all today.  And I’m long overdue in posting it! This little guy is baby Declan, and he’s the son of a sweet friend of mine, who is also a photographer.  I was lucky enough to photograph her older daughter, Arden, and you all may have seen some of the many fun photo shoots we did with Arden back during her first year.  Well, now they’ve added a baby boy to their family and my gosh, he’s precious!!  We decided to do some “extras” for Declan’s shoot, and we added an outdoor session onto the regular in-studio newborn session.  And as you can see, we did these last summer (I did say I was behind on blogging, right?!), and the warm temperatures were perfect for Declan to be posed in all these cute photos outdoors!  We had so much fun, and he was a very sleepy, willing participant!  Some of these outdoor shots are among my most favorite photos ever.  Here is a peek at Declan’s newborn session!

Baby Wesley | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

This absolutely adorable baby boy is Wesley! I was so excited for his session so I could see his sweet family again. I had the honor of photographing Wesley’s older brother – both his newborn photos and throughout his first year.  So I was delighted when I learned they were expecting another baby boy.  Wesley’s Mommy said she really wanted the head-in-hands shot (aka the froggy pose as we photographers like to call it).  So not only did baby Wesley totally nail that shot, he even gave a perfect grin to make it all the more adorable for his Mommy.  I can tell he’s going to be a well behaved child!! 🙂  Here’s my favorites from Wesley’s Raleigh newborn photo session!

Baby Nolan | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

Sweet baby Nolan!! This handsome little fella was 14 days old for his newborn session, which I think is a magic number! He slept so peacefully and was so perfect throughout all of the poses.  And just check out the hair on Nolan. Long and blonde, which is just so unusual and beautiful.  He has an adorable older sister named Ellie, who did so great for her part in the session.  I loved her big smiles and how well she did with her baby brother.  This was such a fun session for me!  Check out some of Nolan’s beautiful photos!

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!

If you’re expecting in the Raleigh – Durham – Wake Forest – North Carolina area and would like some photos of your newborn baby, please contact me!  I’m currently accepting bookings for spring and summer 2017 due dates in the Triangle area.

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.
