Beautiful One Month Old Portraits {Raleigh Newborn Photographer}

This pretty little baby was another one of my favorite sessions from over the summer.  She was about a month old when we did her session, so she wasn't quite in that brand-new newborn phase anymore.  Normally, newborn sessions take place when a baby is about a week old, but not over 2 weeks old.  I met this little girl and her family a few weeks after that.  Although, a session with a one month old looks a lot different than one with a one week old, they are still just as much fun.  By one month old, most babies spend more of their day awake and alert, looking around at the world around them.  I just love the eye contact you can get with them.  She's looking at my camera suspiciously in this first picture.

I also also loved this session because this baby's grandparents were visiting from India and wanted to participate in the newborn photo session.  I absolutely love including grandparents, parents, and siblings in newborn sessions.  These grandparents were so excited to welcome a new baby into the family.

Being the first child in the family, these parents will no doubt enjoy the excitement of this baby girl joining their family.  They enjoyed cuddling her and giving her kisses during her newborn photo session.  Raleigh summers can be notoriously hot, but as long as you can find shade, babies don't usually mind it, since they are accustomed to being so warm.  The backyard was a great location for beautiful photos.

Most newborn photography sessions take place when a baby is around a week old, but that doesn't mean you can't have a session done with your baby at any time.  I am a photographer who serves families in the Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Apex, and Holly Springs areas.  If you are expecting a baby soon, I would love to help you.  All newborn photography sessions (except outdoor newborn sessions) take place in the comfort of the client's home.  I bring all props and equipment to you, so that you can relax and be comfortable.  If you are interested in a newborn portrait session or have any questions, please email me at erica@ericacourtinphotography.com
