It’s currently winter, and I’m behind on my photo sharing here on my blog. You’ll see some outdoor newborn photos in this blog post, but they were taken way back when it was warmer! I get asked a lot to do outdoor newborn photos, and I really adore doing them, however we’re very limited in the months we can do them. Baby Dorothy, whose photos are down below, had her session back in September, and it was *just* barely warm enough outside. Usually the months I stick to for outdoor newborn shots are May through September. If we happen to get lucky and have a warmer day in other months, then I’m of course happy to do them!

I have a great space outside of my Wake Forest, NC studio where I shoot these photos. It’s really easy to pop outdoors during a session and get a few great shots. If you’re wanting to do some outdoor photos as part of your newborn session, please don’t hesitate to ask! It’s no extra cost, and super easy. And of course the results are just beautiful!

Now onto sweet baby Dorothy’s photos! Her family hired me for their older daughter’s newborn portraits a few years ago as well, so I was happy to have them back this time around as their family has grown. Dorothy was just adorable, with an ample amount of chub! 🙂 Her parents requested purple and green to be used throughout the session, which were colors they used at their wedding. And they also wanted some blue to be used, because it was Dorothy’s Grandmother’s favorite color (I love mixing in some blue with baby girls!). Here are some favorites of mine from little Dorothy’s newborn session!

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!
