Jackson, 11 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

This little guy was absolutely adorable AND he did not like the camera one bit! Jackson fought sleep for quite awhile, but eventually he gave in to my magic! We kept him nice and wrapped most of the time so he’d stay sleepy once he decided sleeping was okay. I can already tell he is going to have such a fun personality, ha! Those chunky cheeks and his sweet little button nose melted my heart. His mama requested a Christmas set up, as well as blues and greens. Personally, as a former UNCW seahawk, I have to say that I love the teal images!

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!

Jameson | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

I was so excited for this little guy to come into the world! His mama is one of my closest friends and I couldn't wait to see her with her very own baby boy. It's been such a wonderful experience helping her navigate the early days of motherhood, while getting some sweet baby snuggles (and hopefully I haven't scared her too much with my three small kiddos through the years!). She pretty much gave me free reign with Jameson's newborn portraits and he was seriously one of THE BEST sleeping babies I've EVER photographed! Literally, a dream baby! He slept for hours while I posed him, only waking for a quick snack every so often. The images of Jameson and his parents are ridiculously adorable as well, especially the ones of dad and baby in matching Superman outfits!

I've also included a few of Jameson at about 24 hours old during his Fresh 48 hospital session. He was more alert because of all the newborn tests that morning and those eyes totally melted my heart (and I left the hospital with a *tiny* bit of baby fever!).
