Baby Sutton | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

Oh sweet little Sutton.  What a gorgeous name for a gorgeous baby!  Sutton’s mommy opted for a mini newborn session – which is my newest session offering.  One hour of as many poses as we can squeeze in!  Little Sutton cooperated so nicely and we got SO many great photos.  Yes, aaaaall of these poses (and even a bunch more than shown here) were from a mini newborn session. I find that I can usually over deliver on these sessions as long as the baby is kept awake a little before the session, and arrives with a full belly.  Then they’ll sleep so soundly for the hour, and we can get in lots of setups.  Sutton’s mommy sure delivered – she was out like a light!  If you’d like more info on a mini newborn session, please reach out!  I love doing these.

Here are my favorites!  🙂

Baby Will | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, August 17th, 2018

Sweet little baby Will is the second baby I’ve photographed for this lovely family.  I was so happy for them – adding another little one to their clan.  I met little Will when he was just seven days old.  How lucky am I that I get to encounter these babies so fresh and new to the world?  I truly love it!  Will was tiny and adorable, and so fun to pose.  I loved catching up with his Mommy, and was happy that she shared him with me.  I wouldn’t mind if they just go ahead and have another.  😉

Here are a few shots from Will’s first photo session!

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 Sid | RALEIGH DURHAM BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

I can’t get over what a beautiful baby little Sid is!  And his name totally matches him!  Sid’s daddy is in the Army and they requested camouflage and some Army shots, and they brought along some of Dad’s Army hats and dog tags.  The result was adorable on him.  There is just so much cuteness in this session!  I loved every minute with this family, and I was thrilled to personalize this session for Daddy.  The photo where Sid is smiling with Daddy’s hat and dog tags is my favorite.  And the cute little teddy bear shots are precious too – I get requested to do those almost every session and they’re always favorites of mine and the parents.  Too many favorites to even mention them all!  So here are some of the highlights from Sid’s Raleigh newborn photo 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 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 Natalie | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

Sweet baby girl Natalie is next up on the blog!  I was excited to have another girl after a string of boys.  And actually, after Natalie’s session, I photographed five boys in a row!!  They are yet to be blogged, but you’ll see them here soon!  🙂  I swear I get so many baby boys, which is great.  But I also REALLY love baby girls, and pulling out the pinks and purples, and the headbands and sweet girl outfits.  So… thanks for breaking up my boy streak a little, Natalie!  Natalie’s Mom requested some purple to match their nursery, so of course I obliged.  I hadn’t used purple in a while during a session, so it was nice to get to do something different!  Natalie was super precious at three weeks young!  So dainty and her fuzzy hair was just perfection.  I used one of my favorite newborn outfits from Mia Joy on Natalie, and not only did it fit her so nicely, but it looked like it was made just for her!  So, let’s get to the pictures!  Here are some of my favorites from Natalie’s Raleigh baby session!

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.
