I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a great start! I had such a fabulous 2018, snuggling so many babies, and meeting so many great families. I can’t wait to see what 2019 will have in store for me!

Today’s featured baby from Melissa DeVoe Photography is little Zoya, who came in for her session when she was just 13 days old! She was such a unique newborn, with absolutely beautiful skin, and she was my first ever baby whose head was shaved after birth for religious purposes. I love meeting people from all different walks of life through this job!

We did some breathtaking family photos and sibling photos during Zoya’s session. Her two big brothers are so adoring, and her entire family is stunning! Zoya’s daddy wanted some bright, bold shots of baby Zoya, and he personally picked out the red blanket from my prop collection. I have every color you can imagine, so I love when the parents request specific colors or setups that they know they’ll love. And red isn’t a color I use very often with my newborn sessions, so it was nice to go against the norm and do something different. And wow, Zoya was absolutely precious on that red blanket snuggling the white pillow!!! Melted my heart.

Without further adieu, here is a glimpse of Zoya’s Raleigh, NC newborn photography session!
