{Raleigh NC Newborn Photographer} A Baby Girl In the Studio

July 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I had such a lovely morning recently photographing this adorable newborn baby girl recently at my studio in Fuquay Varina, just outside of Raleigh.  She brought her mommy, daddy, and big brother along.  She was such a happy baby and was so alert for the first part of the session.  She wanted to see everything that was going on.  

One of my favorite parts of this session, though, was the family poses.  I love that this baby girl's mom and dad were willing to participate in some portraits with their little girl.  Maybe big brother was not quite as willing, but he did an awesome job regardless.

Her mom and dad brought some really cute Chicago Cubs props to the session.  The idea popped into my mind to use a mitt in one of the poses, so I snuck downstairs and found my husband's old baseball mitt.  I guess that's a perk of having your photography studio in your house.  Actually, my husband and kids had the day off so they were downstairs.  When my husband discovered that I was doing baseball themed images, he brought up all kinds of gear...a bat, ball, and batting helmet...none of which we got a chance to use, but it was really sweet that he found those for us.

Other than the baseball themed portraits, it was all dainty for this little girl.  She looked so pretty in pastels, like this blue and lavender.

Even though it tends to be a tad easier to photograph a newborn baby when they are asleep, I always love it when I get a chance to see the eyes wide open like this.  Most babies can't really make eye contact like this.  She was so interested in what I was doing.

This wide awake behavior didn't last.  She spent most of the session doing what brand new babies do best...sleep.  She even let us put her in this cozy bucket, surrounded by soft lavender blankets.

Since it was such a pretty day we ended the morning with a few poses outdoors.  I had a plan to finally grow some beautiful flowers in my yard so I can take some newborn photos outdoors.  Unfortunately, I don't have a green thumb, so we didn't have much to work with.  Since this session, though, I've managed to grow quite a pretty bed of zinnias in my yard.
