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 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 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.

Elizabeth Grace | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Oh sweet little Elizabeth Grace! I’ve had the honor of being her photographer for both her newborn photo session and 3-month photo session.  And this time we met up for her 6-month portraits shortly before her family moved away.  I will miss seeing them for their sessions!  She is an absolutely stunning baby, as you can see!  And we had a wonderful evening photo session with some gorgeous light at my favorite Raleigh location.  Elizabeth Grace is such a smiling, happy delight and I just adore each and every photo from her Raleigh baby 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!

Baby Amelia | RALEIGH NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

I hope everyone is staying cool and having a great start to summer! As is typical for me during the summer months, I’ve only accepted a very small amount of bookings because I have all three of my crazy baby boys home with me for the next three months.  So my working hours are very limited! Instead I’m focusing on my little ones right now and making memories with them.  So things may be a bit quiet here and on my Facebook photography page.  I’ll still be posting a few things from time to time, so be sure to follow along over on my FB page and my Instagram page (link, here)

Today I want to share with you the very adorable baby Amelia and her sweet family! Her big brother and sister are just the CUTEST and are so adoring and precious with her! We did some really sweet outdoor newborn setups, which are always some of my favorite baby shots to do during the warmer months here in Raleigh.  Amelia was just so stunning and perfect and I loved having her family come in to see me!

Baby Elizabeth | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NC BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

Today I have a 3-month photo session to share!  Elizabeth Grace came in for her 3-month studio portrait session as part of my Baby’s First Year package. Her parents opted for newborn, 3 month and 6 month photos because they’ll be moving away from Raleigh shortly.  I’m sure you’ll remember her adorable Raleigh newborn session, but if not, click the link and go see her as an itty bitty newborn. She’s changed a lot in the last three months, and her hair is still amazing. It’s gotten a bit redder, and a bit longer, and it’s soooo precious and perfect! I only put one hat on her the whole session because I didn’t want to cover it up. She is a sweet, happy baby, and cooperated well for all of her outfit changes and different setups we put her through.  I can’t wait to see her again soon for her 6-month session!!

Baby Ruby | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Saturday, March 5th, 2016

I was so excited to meet baby girl Ruby for her Raleigh newborn session! I photographed her older brother Eli a few years ago and of course was thrilled that they chose me to create more art for their home and to capture these memories for them. And baby Ruby was so gorgeous. I enjoyed snuggling her in my studio and getting to know her cute little personality! And her Mommy likes purple, which excited me. I love pulling out purple from my prop stash…. I have tons!!!  I always style my sessions around my client’s color choices, and love to make sure everything is cohesive and flows together nicely for those who order albums with all of their portraits.  Honestly, besides snuggling the babies, the styling of my sessions is one of my favorite things about this job.   I love details, I love color, and I love things to be perfect!!! Type A? Who ME?!?! 🙂  Okay, back to sweet baby Ruby. Here’s a peek at her baby session in my Raleigh studio!
