Alex, 13 days new | Wilmington Newborn Photographer

Alex was the rainbow after the storm, well many storms, for his parents. He was born after several heartbreaking losses, including a second trimester loss and just a few days later after that, the loss of his maternal grandfather. After all of that grief, Alex’s parents were so excited to learn that he was on his way and I believe he has brought so much love and light to their lives already.

Because he has Scottish roots, we incorporated plaids in his session. I’m in love with the little cap, but I also had to show his full head of hair (I just wanted to play with his hair the entire session!) We used lots of yellows, greens, and blues throughout his session. The nursery (with the beautiful mural designed by his mama) was the perfect backdrop to capture images of his gorgeous family!

I entered several of these images into an international newborn photography contest and I was so honored that one of them won second place! If I was a judge, I’d definitely fall in love with this precious little guy ❤
