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 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!

Baby Speros | BEST RALEIGH BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

I have a sweet baby boy to share with you all today! His name is Speros, which is a family name, and is SO different and neat.  He had a really GREAT photo session!  Speros was nine days old when I met him and was a great little sleeper and poser.  I absolutely loved him on that dark blue, one of my favorite colors for boys. This sweet baby boy’s parents got in for a few shots as well, and they were so adorable.  Parent shots are always included in newborn sessions at no extra charge.  So be sure to capture these memories that your kids will treasure someday!  Here’s a look at Speros’ newborn photo session in Raleigh, NC.

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 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 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!

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!
