Raleigh Newborn Baby Photographer – Sawyer Sneak Peek

As a Raleigh Newborn Baby Photographer, I seriously have the best job in the world!!  Little Sawyer was a complete doll for his session!  At just 2 weeks old, he was still super tiny, snuggly and smiley!  Sawyer was a born early, so we photographed him at 1 week old with his older brother Wiley and mom and dad.  I find that doing family photos separate when their is a sibling involved is the best case scenario for everyone cooperating! ;)  Then I invited Sawyer and his mommy back to the studio a week later and he was just perfect!  His jaundice had subsided and he was still as sleepy as could be.  I keep the studio very warm for newborn sessions and it gets quite hot!!  So sometimes having multiple people in the studio can make it even warmer and then everyone is sweaty and tired for family photos at the end, especially toddlers and young children!  In the event a client travels from farther away, I have dad bring the older sibling at the end of the session for the family portion this way they are fresh and ready to go.  Newborn sessions can take up to 2 1/2 hours and while it can be a much needed break for mom and dad, I would never expect a small child to endure that and then be ready to be photographed!  Plus having a quiet and calm studio is essential for the newborn session to go smoothly.  I just love Sawyer’s sweet smile in this image!!  I knew it would be my sneak peek image for the family as soon as I took it!  His little hands are so adorable the way he cupped his face.  You can just tell how content he is all snuggled tight and warm.  I love the smooth texture of the wrap against the fluffy tufts of the flokati rug.  I have these rugs in multiple colors because they just photograph so beautifully!  I can’t wait to finish editing the rest of this session for Sawyer’s family!  So many beautiful images for them to adorn their walls and home with!

Raleigh Area Newborn Photographer- Micah Newborn

Carrie and her husband Matthew from the Cary area, inquired about doing a newborn  photography session for their new son, Micah. I shot their older son Luca’s newborn photos back in August of 2014, and was beyond thrilled to be able to work with such a kind family again. Once I saw how naturally handsome Micah was, I knew it’d be an easy shoot. He was such a well behaved baby not only for his individual shots, but also the family and sibling shots. He allowed me to pose him and get some shots that I’m very proud of, all without fuss.  I love being to go to Raleigh area newborn photographer!

Luca and Micah have to be one of my absolute favorite sibling shots I’ve done to date. You can see nothing but the absolute love Luca has for his little brother, and how much Micah is already adored. Giving Carrie and her family 2 different sets of timeless prints that vary from one another is one of the best feelings. Knowing she will look back on these photos and see how much her sons have grown up and changed, is priceless. Giving these families something that I know they will cherish together for the rest of their lives is what keeps me motivated to be able to give other families the chance to do the same. Carrie and Matthew’s family shots encompass the connection that a new baby can bring to a family and I’m glad they have the photos to remind them of it.

Fatima Newborn – Fayetteville Newborn Photography

Elana and Mohamed welcomed their first child, a daughter named Fatima, and chose me to capture their newborn. They chose my form of art because their family absolutely loves photography and they wanted something to remember the newborn stage of her life with. For relatives, quality photography in the right album or mat, can make such a memorable gift. Fayetteville newborn photography is one of those unique gifts that you won’t find somewhere in a store. It’s a gift that you give that no one else will have, and will bring out priceless smiles from friends and family. As soon as Elana arrived with Fatima, she was all grins! I knew she’d be an amazingly behaved baby, and we’d be able to focus on what the family wanted to get out of their session.

Fatima is one of those babies who is born naturally perfect. I didn’t have to do much editing on her, because there wasn’t much to edit out! She was born with some of the most naturally beautiful features that made posing and capturing them such a breeze. Elana is such a naturally beautiful woman, and I can tell that Fatima is going to turn out just like her mother! Their family shoot was stunning, just because of how happy they were, and how beautiful of a family they are. I’m so thrilled that the this family chose me to take such breathtaking shots of their baby girl!  Elana and Mohamed traveled over an hour from Fayetteville, so we were able to do a Skype view and order appointment and it worked out beautifully!  It was so great to see Fatima a few weeks later looking much bigger and wide awake! :D  My favorite moment for me as the photographer is seeing my clients view their images for the first time.  I literally have tears in my eyes while creating their slideshow and get so emotional when I see them feeling the same way about their images.  Priceless!!

Durham Baby Photographer – Gian 1 Year Cake Smash

Being a Durham Baby Photographer has led me to meet some of the most amazing children and their families! I’m so honored that Gian’s family came back to me to capture this important milestone in his life!  I photographed him as a brand new baby for his newborn session and the biggest compliment my clients can give me is coming back to capture their babies again. Gian has one of those faces that seems to always have a grin on it, and has some of the biggest brown eyes! He immediately becomes the center of attention just because of his out-there personality, and his adorable manner makes everyone fall in love with him. His never ending smile made it super easy to capture his true personality on such a big day for him and his family! Any milestone in a babies life is a reason to celebrate, and celebrating with photography is one of the best ways to remember some of the most beautiful moments of life.

Milestone shoots and cake smash sessions are always super fun to shoot, and the families are always very excited to see what their baby will do! Some babies demolish the cakes, whereas others just swipe the frosting, but either way the moment is captured so it can always be remembered and shared! I’ve partnered with Sarah from Batter Bowl Bakeshop here in Raleigh, so if you choose, a personalized (and incredibly delicious) cake will be here waiting for you so there’s no mess or risk of the cake being demolished before the shoot! Having such a good partnership with Sarah ensures that your cake will be fresh and waiting for you here at my studio, so that’s one less thing to worry about.  Sometimes transporting a ca New parents should be focused on the baby and their milestones instead of worrying about small details that I’m glad to help cover!
