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!

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!
