Declan, 21 days new | Wilmington Newborn Photographer

Declan was the snuggliest little bear at 3 weeks old! His parents requested neutrals, blue tones, and a bit of a nautical feel. He was the happiest while all wrapped up, but he also enjoyed snoozing in a bucket for awhile. At the beginning of our session, we photographed some family moments of mom and dad with their sweet boy. Declan’s animal-themed nursery was absolutely gorgeous (I have to say, I think the toddler-sized giraffe will be a favorite of Declan’s in a couple of years). The family’s curious fur baby found himself in the middle of a few shots, which turned out to be perfect!

Ethan, 11 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Ethan was one of the most snuggly and sleepiest babies I’ve ever photographed! He literally slept almost his entire session and let me have the best time posing him. His mama requested blue set ups, which definitely complemented his head full of hair, beautiful complexion, and perfect tiny features. Ethan’s gorgeous and super sweet big sister was so smitten by her new baby (I know they’ll be partners in crime pretty soon!).

Theo, 11 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

I’m betting that little man would make anyone’s baby fever go crazy! Theo was the most perfect baby, with his beautiful complexion and chubby cheeks. And he slept wonderfully throughout his newborn session! Theo’s mom requested neutral colors, so the palette for his portraits consisted of shades of tan, gray, and white, with pops of blue. He also has an adorable big sister, who was so proud of her new baby! Before setting up for the posed portion of the session, we created some relaxed family shots out on the gorgeous covered porch (I seriously NEED their swing!). I love the simplicity of a baby in just a diaper on a warm summer morning.

Here are some of my favorite images of Theo and his sweet family!

Braxton, 14 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

This little guy was such an angel. I may be a bit biased because he's family, but he was seriously so sweet. Braxton was wide awake during the first bit of his newborn session, so we got to see some of those beautiful eyes (he also has the most adorable chin dimple!). When he fell asleep, he posed like a pro, even giving us some baby smiles and sweet yawns. He was such a good baby that I *almost* wanted to take him home with me!
