Pretty in Pink
Wake Forest NC Newborn Photographer
This sweet girl was just so beautiful and decked out in her pink blanket, love it. She loved being photographed and didn’t want to miss a second of the session. Loved seeing her yawn and those dimples! Such a sweetheart! I love newborn sessions at home because a lot of stress is out the window..you have everything you need and there’s no rush. We watched a lot of HGTV while this sweet girl was going to sleep.
According to Mom….
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? I had an unplanned c-section, so I wasn’t able to really see her for over an hour other than a quick glimpse. Hearing her little cry for the first time absolutely the best moment. It took my breath away to know she was ours and finally here. My husband was with her while they were finishing my surgery and in recovery. When they finally met me in recovery, her and her dad looked like best friends already. It’s unreal seeing your baby for the first time, I was instantly in love with her.
What was your favorite part of our session together? The best part is how patient Becky is! Blakely didn’t want to miss out on anything so it took her a while to fall back asleep. Becky tried all the tricks to get her back to sleep and to make sure I got the pictures I wanted. It’s really nice being in the comfort of your own home where we could feed or change her easily if needed.
How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? Before Becky arrived, I made sure Blakely was fed, changed and just in her diaper wrapped in a blanket.
How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? We are first time parents and I wanted everything to be perfect. Of course I worried that my newborn wouldn’t behave or that they wouldn’t turn out like I hoped. But, her pictures are amazing! I love the way she captured our daughter’s dimples and the way she can’t stand to have her feet covered up.
What would be your advice to someone having newborn photographs taken? It’s really hard, but try not to stress. Just go with the flow!
Was there a sentimental item in your nursery that we photographed? There’s an American flag on the wall in her nursery that I love. It was a gift for my husband from some of our good friends at our gender reveal party. My husband served four years in the US Marine Corps so it makes the flag in her room even more special. I love that it’s in her nursery and I can’t wait to tell our daughter about her dad’s bravery and service to our country!
Any favorite baby gear so far? I really thought it was overrated, but I love our dock-a-tot pillow. It’s so easy to bring all over the house and travel with. Blakely loves it so it was definitely worth it!
Any other advice to families picking out wardrobe or preparing for a session? Pick comfortable outfits since there’s a lot of posing and positions. Becky makes you look good no matter what you wear though!
