Bryce, 12 days new | Wilmington Newborn Photographer

I met this sweet boy’s family nearly two years ago when I photographed his big sister as a newborn. It was almost like deja vu because Bryce looks so similar to his sister, Sadie, and he was such a good baby. He slept like a dream, only waking up once or twice for a snack and he loved being wrapped up all nice and snug.

However, Bryce did open his eyes for a bit while we were taking some family shots. Big sister, like most 21 month olds, was not into having her picture taken, but we did get some adorable images of her checking out her new baby.

I LOVE being able to photograph families as they grow and welcome baby #2, #3, or more! Bryce’s mama has now become a friend and I’m so grateful for a job that allows me to meet such wonderful babies and families!

Aubri, 10 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Baby Aubri was such an angel during her newborn session! Her mom wanted to incorporate all things girly, such as a color palette of pink and purple, as well as pearls. We even captured a few grins and adorable facial expressions while she was snuggled up in a bucket. We were able to safely include the family fur babies by taking several different shots and merging them together to create a precious final image. I have a feeling those pups will be by her side for a long time!

We also had such a wonderful time creating some very sweet family images in the nursery and bedroom. I can tell Aubri will be a Daddy’s girl by the bond they seemed to already share. Mom and Dad were completely enamored by their new baby girl and it was such an honor to be a small part of their early days!

Graham, 11 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Baby Graham was such a sweetheart during his newborn session! He slept wonderfully, which allowed me to capture some adorable poses. His mom requested greens for his portraits and I think the deep color was perfect for him and his seriously flawless skin/beautiful complexion!. I totally swooned over his nursery when mom sent me photos and it was just as gorgeous in person, which made a lovely backdrop for family portraits. I love the way you can sense so much emotion while looking at the images with Graham and his parents. Also, both of his grandmothers were present for his session, so we were able to grab a few images with several generations, which I think he'll always treasure!

Alexei, 11 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Alexei melted my heart with his sweet, chubby cheeks and wispy, blonde hair. He rocked his newborn session at 11 days old, sleeping mostly the entire time. However, he woke up a few times to check out what was going on and we sneaked some shots of his gorgeous eyes. His mom requested blues and neutrals, which complimented his nautical themed nursery. Alexei also has a handsome big brother and in one of the first images below, we caught adorable smiles from both brothers!

Beth & Nate | Wilmington NC Maternity Photographer

Beth is one of my closest friends and she also happens to be one of the most beautiful expecting mamas ever. Beth and her husband Nate are so adorable together and I had so much fun laughing with them and assuring them that they are definitely not awkward! These images were taken a couple months ago, when the flowers had just started to bloom and everything was turning green, which made for a beautiful backdrop during their session.

Beth is so great with little ones and she's been an amazingly supportive during my motherhood journey, so I'm excited to watch her become a mother herself. Baby Jameson is due literally any day now and I cannot wait to get my hands on him!
