Annabelle is ONE | Wilmington NC Baby Photographer

My third baby turned one in May! Of course, I've been planning Annabelle's cake smash since she was barely even out of the newborn stage. I knew I wanted something feminine and decided on floral with a butterfly theme. The gorgeous paper flowers on the backdrop are from The Whimsical Petals on Etsy and the cake was made by One Belle Bakery in Wilmington (seriously beautiful AND so delicious!). 

She wasn't sure of the cake at first, but once she tasted it, she was hooked (some of the faces below are hilarious!). She was pretty dainty about it all, but she still got to take a fun bath at the end!

Abigail, 8 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

I met this sweet girl at barely a week old and she definitely rocked her newborn session! Baby Abigail was so precious and adorable all snuggled in purple and mint. She mainly preferred to be wrapped up, all nice and cozy, so we kept her swaddled for most of the session. I know her parents are so glad they will have these images to remind them just how tiny and beautiful she was at eight days old (because they really do change so quickly!).

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!

Evelyn, 8 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Little miss Evelyn recently became the fourth member of this sweet family. Big sister Genevieve was so proud and she couldn't wait to tell me all about her new baby! To begin the session, we took family shots in the nursery and Genevieve was such a pro while holding Evelyn.

Baby Evelyn was an amazing sleeper and she looked so beautiful in her pink set-ups. Mom also ordered a few prints to be displayed in their home so they can remember this special time in their family!

Harrison, 8 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

This baby boy was literally a dream! Harrison was not only super squishy and adorable, but he was such a chill little guy.  His parents requested blues, greens, and neutrals and those colors definitely complimented his gorgeous complexion. 

We also captured sweet moments between mom, dad, and new baby. Seriously, these parents were so amazing and I could feel how proud they were of little Harrison. I'm honored to have had the privilege of photographing this new chapter in their lives (and I snagged some baby snuggles in the process!).
