{Raleigh NC Newborn Photography} Neutral Colors and a Baby Girl

October 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The theme of this photography session was neutral.  I loved that parents requested neutral colors and not a lot of headbands and hats on their baby girl.  They wanted the focus to be on their beautiful little girl.  

Although I normally do use props, like headbands, hats, and outfits, I love keeping it simple and timeless.  Newborn portraits that have too many props tend to look outdated quickly and can't be enjoyed for generations.  Do you know anyone who got in on the Glamour Shots trend back in the 80s and 90s?  Case in point.  Are they still displaying their photographs?  Probably not.  More likely, they are hidden away and only pulled out for a good laugh.  Ten years from now, giant flowery headbands and crazy crochet hats will be out of style, so let's not include them in your baby's photography session if you want to enjoy these photographs years from now.  Keep it simple and beautiful.  That's my motto.  

This family was adorable and this baby girl is clearly cherished.  Take a look at how we were able to use neutral colors and simplicity to really celebrate the baby and not props.

Aside from having an adorable baby girl, I truly enjoyed working with this mom and dad.  They were so sweet with each other, working like a real team to take care of the baby.  It was really sweet to witness.

A simple little bonnet is a sweet way to add a little touch of pretty to a newborn portrait.  Bonnets like this one have been worn by babies for decades.  I love the little toes peeking in this one.
