Baby Boy {Apex NC Newborn Photographer}

May 18, 2015  •  5 Comments

April brought a surge of newborn baby boys that kept me busy right up until my trip to Belize.  This little guy was so sweet and cuddly when I met him at his home outside of Raleigh, in Apex.  He tried to put up a good fight against sleeping, but he quickly wore himself out.  He was such a pleasure to meet and photograph.  He also had one of the coolest nurseries I've ever seen.  It was modern, rustic, and a really neat room for a little boy to grow up in.  

I had to laugh when I saw these first images from the beginning of the session.  Most of my newborn sessions start with a baby who claims that he doesn't want to fall asleep.  This doesn't worry me at all.  Newborn babies have their own rules and will do whatever they please.  My job as a photographer involves a lot of patience and I love it.  I could probably create a collage like this of babies with these same expressions from many of my sessions.

Normally, I keep my editing very simple and natural.  With the image below, though, I kept wondering what it would look like had he been on a solid black background.  With a little editing fun, I was able to create a very different look.  Which one do you prefer? newborn baby boy photographer serving raleigh cary holly springs apex ncnewborn baby boy photographer serving raleigh cary holly springs apex ncnewborn baby boy photographer serving raleigh cary holly springs apex nc newborn baby boy photographer serving raleigh cary holly springs apex ncnewborn baby boy photographer serving raleigh cary holly springs apex ncnewborn baby boy photographer serving raleigh cary holly springs apex nc

Lovely collection of newborn photos Erica. Love the progression of wide awake to sleeping baby :) It certainly doesn't hurt to have a full tummy, noise maker & a little bit of warmth!
