Complete Joy!

First of all, make sure you go see their maternity portraits here, and their first baby’s newborn portraits with that same tree. (So special!) I love this Mama so much, we have been friends since we were fourteen years old, and such an encourager and special friend she is to me. During this time, my dad was in the hospital in Greensboro, and we were probably running on the same amount of sleep the day of her newborn portraits. It was so special to be able to catch up and see her sweet baby boy.Oh, and I love their bright beautiful kitchen and was so glad we were able to snap a few photos in there while I was there.

According to Mom…

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? Complete joy! I had such a wonderful birth and really felt the presence of God and His grace through it all..especially as I celebrated holding Eli!

What was your favorite part of our session together? I felt so very comfortable and myself being at home. I could tell my smiles were genuine because of that! I also appreciate how Rebecca gives me little hints to get the most flattering shots for mom. For example, I can trust her to tell me to lift my chin so I’m not showing a double chin for the photos. Lol(:

How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? We gave baby a bath and swaddled him before nursing him before the session..but he woke up right before!

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? It went so well and Rebecca was so patient during the transition times when he needed to go back to sleep or when my toddler needed a snack or break! I was more concerned about how my 2 year old would fare during the session.

What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? I would definitely recommend asking a family member or friend to come be a helper that day. My mom really helped entertain and calm my 2 year old and even fed him little snacks between smiles! I would advise clients to prepare as much as they can the day before. We still needed to straighten our nursery and bedroom up a bit that morning and it was a rush!

Did you have a sentimental item at our shoot? We wrapped baby in a swaddle blanket that I love with a Bible verse written on it that is special to me. We also had it embroidered with his name.

Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? Silas turned 2 a few weeks before baby Eli was born and was so gentle with him from the start. He loves to hold him with Mommy’s help and shows sweet concern whenever Eli cries.

Any favorite baby gear so far? I definitely wear this baby more! I’ve appreciated the moby wrap (easier to use than it seems at first) and the ring sling.

Mabel + Finnian

Raleigh Newborn Photography

Raleigh Newborn Photos with Dogs P I N this to pinterest

It was so super sweet to see this little guy with his puppy. And what a sweetheart she was! I get to meet so many puppies while working, and I love seeing them with their babies. Mabel was just such a sweet dog too. I love that we were able to get some bright eyed and some sleepy pictures of Finnian with his family + his puppy. Newborn sessions at home are the best because you have nowhere to go, it’s just focused on you and your baby. And everything you need is right there. (Isn’t it amazing how babies are just so small but need so much!) It was a great morning with these four + loved meeting this sweet family!

According to Mom…

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? Seeing Finnian for the first time was a wirlwind of emotions: awe, wonder, amazement, relief, and overwhelming joy were among the first. It’s so difficult to describe, but it was the most amazing moment of my life by far. I had no idea what to expect, but it surpassed my wildest expectations. We are so in love with our little boy!

What was your favorite part of our session together? The best part of having our newborn session together was how relaxed and calm you were! I was a nervous wreck and felt super anxious about my body and the baby cooperating, but you totally made me feel like you had everything under control and knew exactly what to do to get the most perfect pictures. It was wonderful doing them at home because, especially as new parents, it’s really stressful trying to take the baby out to places (and even more so in the first two weeks!). On top of that, the pictures look so natural and feel that much more special since the setting is our own home.

How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? I did my hair and makeup and felt very happy that I actually was able to do both on time!:)I also worked with the stylist to order some clothes, although I should have tried them on because they didn’t fit. Other than that, we tried to clean as much as possible, but luckily it didn’t matter too much once you got here and we just shuffled the clutter when we needed to (which was really helpful!)

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? How did it turn out? I was nervous and worried that he wouldn’t cooperate, but it worked out great and you were SO patient and knew lots of good tricks to get the perfect shots. It turned out PERFECT and we could not be more thrilled with the pictures! They are so beautiful. I was also so worried about how I would look, just two weeks post partum. But you made me look great and I feel like I was covered up without being cropped out.

What would be your advice to someone having newborn photographs taken? Relax and don’t stress because Becky knows what she’s doing. They will turn out beautiful and you will look great too!

Did you have a sentimental item at our shoot? We used two blankets that my mom knit for the baby. One was the first baby blanket we received, and my mom actually started knitting it before we revealed my pregnancy…she already picked up on the hints and knew before we told her!

Was there a sentimental item in your nursery that we photographed? The crib and quilt, along with the mobile are special. I’m so glad we got nice pictures of the nursery!

Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? We do not have other human children, but we got so many amazing pictures with our first furbaby, our dog Mabel! We love the pictures so much! She’s so much a part of our little family.

Any favorite baby gear so far? Or things you’ve loved that you’ve bought for the baby? We really love the 4Moms play yard. We use the bassinet attachment for his bassinet in our room, and it’s so easy to pick up and take places for traveling. We also have a BOB stroller that’s awesome and super easy to maneuver. Lastly, we love our Kindercarry baby carrier and Keekaroo Peanut changing pads!

Any other advice to families preparing for photos or picking out wardrobe? Wear what you’re most comfortable in. Simple, and form fitting is best!

New Baby Sweetness

Chapel Hill Newborn Photography

It was super fun to find out this sweet boy was going to be a big brother. (See his newborn portraits here) He was just so adorable holding his baby brother and showing me all about him. We also talked about dinosaurs, trains, and all things transportation. And you can see from these photos, he loves his Mommy so much! Love it! Everything about this session was just so sweet, and I have loved photographing this family so much.

We have a lot of things coming up for summer, so if you aren’t on our e-mail list, click here to stay up to date. (And of course, we will release fall mini dates, this summer, and they go out to the email list + facebook group first)

Welcome Emerson 

Raleigh Newborn Family Photography

Newborn Lifestyle Family PhotographyP I N this to pinterest

I was really excited when I heard from this Mama that they were having another baby.Their family is just so chill and fun to photograph. Big brother was just soooo absolutely precious with his baby brother. He just rolled with the session and was able to have a lot of fun while snuggling his baby brother. This session is serious cuteness overload with these two boys. Also, this mama has such a great style + it’s fun to photograph all the special touches she added to her boys’ nurseries. Love how their sessions were in the same house but completely different for both boys (see big brother’s newborn portraits here)

According to Mom…

What was your favorite part of our session together? I loved how relaxed it was. We all felt comfortable, even my two year old son. I also love that the photos represent us in our element and that we’ll always have photos to share with our boys of what our house looked like when they were born and what their nurseries were like.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you nervous or worried beforehand? This time around I was more nervous about our toddler behaving and holding still long enough to get some good shots. Rebecca was so patient with him and made everything fun for him – he was excited to show her his baby brother and his favorite toys.

What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Long enough to get some good shots. Rebecca was so good with him and made everything fun for him.

Did you have a sentimental item at our shoot? Yes – we had Emerson photographed in moccasins I had as a baby. She photographed our oldest in the same pair a few years ago.

Any favorite baby gear so far?  My favorite baby gear this time around has been my Solly Baby wrap. It has been tremendously helpful to wear the little one while I wrangle my toddler.
