Baby Laurel | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Sweet baby Laurel was such a delight!  I photographed her in my Wake Forest studio just before my summer break (still catching up on blogging!).  She was 10 days old and wide awake for a good chunk of the session.  I really love a calm, awake baby for some of the session.  The photos with baby’s eyes open are always the parent’s favorites!  And we got quite a few of those with baby Laurel.  Some of her expressions were really just priceless!!! She gave me just the right mix of being awake, and then also going to sleep for some poses.  She was beautiful! Here’s a peek at Laurel’s Raleigh newborn photo session!

Baby Davis | RALEIGH NC BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

I want you all to meet the absolutely precious baby Davis, who came to meet me for his newborn portraits at 14 days old.  I love his name so much, and he has the most beautiful creamy soft skin!  To die for! Davis has an adorable big brother named Treve, and we got some amazing photos of the two of them together.  They are an adorable pair together – this family is very blessed!  Davis was a great little poser, and I adore all of his photos.  Here are some of my favorites from his photo session!

BABY ZANDER | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Baby Zander, you are precious and you have an amaaaaaazing head of hair!!!!  I got to snuggle him in my Wake Forest studio at a fresh little 9 days old.  He was just absolutely gorgeous, and so were his parents, so it was easy to see where it came from!  I really enjoyed meeting this family and spending time with Zander!  I loved all of his newborn photos, and all of the sweet little poses he did for me.  So much goodness!

Next up to share is the adorable baby Rosalie.  She came into my studio in Wake Forest for her newborn portraits at just 12 days old.  Her big sister Charlotte, who I also photographed as a baby, came along and we got some great photos of the two girls together!  I loved seeing Charlotte again, and catching up with the new family of four!  Rosalie did so great for her newborn portraits.  She was so calm and a sweet baby.  So many favorites to share!

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!
