Harper, 6 weeks new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Miss Harper was such a beautiful, sweet girl for her newborn portraits! Typically, we like to schedule newborn sessions during the first two weeks of life, when babies are still very sleepy and can be safely posed in those adorable, curly positions. However, some parents become caught up in the busy first days of snuggling, feeding and changing. Harper’s mom contacted me, a bit worried that she was about a month outside of the typical age guidelines, but her baby girl was absolutely amazing!

We did mostly wrapped poses to keep Harper nice and snuggled, stopping for quick snack breaks. We were also able to get a shot in a very special blue dress that has been handed down for many generations in her mama’s family. And although Harper is her parents first human baby, she does have two fur siblings, who cooperated for a family photo!
