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!

Avery, 10 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Little Avery was such a doll for her newborn session! She had the most gorgeous little features with the perfect amount of squishiness! We incorporated lots of pink, purple, and florals for this dainty sweetheart.

Also, it was so nice getting to know her parents and I had a wonderful time capturing family shots (their adorable dog even hopped in an image!). One of my favorite aspects of newborn photography is talking with parents and learning about their family and their story. Becoming a parent (or adding another little one to your family!) is an amazing, and also sometimes terrifying, experience and I love that I can be a small part of the early days for my newborn clients!

Dani, 6 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

Oh my goodness, Dani was seriously a dream baby during her newborn session! Less than a week old and so incredibly adorable. She also had an equally sweet big sister who was so excited to have her very own baby. She kept checking on Dani if she heard her make a peep, so I can tell these two are going to be the best of friends! We captured some images that represent the special time after bringing home baby number two and then Dani posed like a pro for me. I think mint, pink, and neutrals were perfect for this girl!

Abigail, 8 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

I met this sweet girl at barely a week old and she definitely rocked her newborn session! Baby Abigail was so precious and adorable all snuggled in purple and mint. She mainly preferred to be wrapped up, all nice and cozy, so we kept her swaddled for most of the session. I know her parents are so glad they will have these images to remind them just how tiny and beautiful she was at eight days old (because they really do change so quickly!).

Braxton, 14 days new | Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

This little guy was such an angel. I may be a bit biased because he's family, but he was seriously so sweet. Braxton was wide awake during the first bit of his newborn session, so we got to see some of those beautiful eyes (he also has the most adorable chin dimple!). When he fell asleep, he posed like a pro, even giving us some baby smiles and sweet yawns. He was such a good baby that I *almost* wanted to take him home with me!
