Marriner, 6 days new | Wilmington Newborn Photographer

Oh, Marriner ❤️ This pretty girl slept almost her entire session and was (literally) a dream to work with! Her mama requested blush, sage, and gray and I jumped at the chance to use some green on a girl. A few weeks after I met sweet Marriner, I had the opportunity to photograph her extended family on the beach, which was so much fun (that session will be blogged soon!).

Here are some of my faves from my time with this beautiful little lady:

Aubrey, 7 days new | Wilmington Newborn Photographer

Aubrey’s newborn session was filled with soft, feminine colors, like purple and pink, and featured her gorgeous nursery. Her parents are both local veterinarians, so of course, a tiny, stuffed puppy made an appearance (I love incorporating these personal touches into sessions!). We also captured the new family of three snuggling and creating memories in Aubrey’s perfectly decorated nursery. I couldn’t be happier to have met this adorable family and shared a tiny part of their new beginning!

Morgan, 11 days new | Wilmington Newborn Photographer

This beautiful girl and her family were an absolute joy to photograph! Miss Morgan barely made a peep during her newborn session and her gorgeous features were complemented by the colors her mama chose to incorporate (feminine, soft colors like peach, pink, and cream). Everyone was so sweet, especially Morgan’s older brother, who was very excited to have a little sister. He kept me laughing with his silly personality and contagious smile!

Here are some of my favorites from our time together!

Magnolia, 12 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

This beautiful girl has been such a huge blessing for her family and especially her older sisters. I was so excited for Magnolia’s family when I learned about her arrival. I met and photographed her parents and big sisters in the fall of 2017, just a few weeks before then-3 year old Jorja was diagnosed with leukemia. Sweet Jorja is doing well these days, in the midst of her treatments, and she’s loving her new role of big sister. Biggest sister Savannah was also beaming the entire time and enjoyed showing off her new baby.

Magnolia (I just LOVE her name!) was gorgeous in a floral romper and neutral tones, requested by her mama. She was such an angel and slept almost her entire session! Here are some of my favorites:

Charlotte, 15 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

I was so excited to meet Charlotte and her parents after learning she was a rainbow baby (a baby born after pregnancy loss). I’ve personally experienced loss in my own journey to motherhood, so rainbow babies have a special place in my heart.

This session was a piece of cake because baby girl was a wonderful sleeper and snuggler! Charlotte was absolutely gorgeous and her family was so incredibly sweet as well. We got some great family images in her nursery, which was so beautiful, bright, and airy (and the book on the table is called “Brave Charlotte”- so awesome!), and the master bedroom. As for the posed images, Charlotte’s mama asked for soft feminine colors, like pink and peach, and we incorporated rainbows. I also love the subtle touches such as the flowers in the headbands and tiny gold polka dots!
