Before we get to little Emerson’s newborn session share, I wanted to touch on the topic of family and sibling photos during newborn sessions.  I currently have two different newborn session options – mini sessions and full sessions.  The mini is the quick, no-fuss option.  A shorter session with time for baby photos only, and just one price for the session and a digital download of the photos.  The full session gives us plenty of time to get family photos and/or photos with any big brothers and sisters, as well as lots of different options for prints, digital files, or products to purchase after the session.

I get asked a lot what clients should wear for their family photo, and my preference is that folks always wear something simple.  You don’t want a lot of bright colors, patterns, florals, etc. that will go out of style in a few years.  A simple, neutral colored top (think cream, grey, white, black, or soft colors) with basic jeans or pants is ideal.  We’ll swaddle baby in a basic wrap, or go nude for some sweet skin shots.  The simpler we keep everything, the better the photo will be.  Of course, this is just my personal preference for the style of your photos!  You are more than welcome to wear whatever you think represents you and your family the best!

And now onto this sweet baby girl named Emerson.  This is another family where I was fortunate to photograph the older sibling as a baby, and as he got older (back when I still offered family sessions).  And as always, I’m so delighted to welcome back past clients into my Wake Forest, NC newborn studio for another baby session!  Emerson was gorgeous, and I love all of the family and sibling photos we did that day.  Here are a few of my favorites!

We can create beautiful newborn art together!  If you would like to schedule your new baby for a photo session, please let me know.  I can be reached through e-mail, or through the contact form on my website (link below) to book your photo session.  Thank you so much!
