Raleigh North Carolina Newborn Photographer
Remember this stunning Mama + her maternity portraits? Well, their sweet little sleeping beauty has arrived. I love that she was named after her grandmother and that we used the tea towels her grandmother made during the session – just so special! This was just a cloudy day at home, and we were able to capture such special memories for this sweet family of three.
According to Mom….
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? I couldn’t believe it was real! My labor experience was long and difficult and it was just unbelievable to finally have her laying on me.
What was the best part of having a newborn session at home? I loved doing the session at home because it captured us in our natural environment. Plus it made it easy to not have to travel! We were able to take our time and work around Maxine’s needs.
How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? No preparation other than making sure she was fed and calm. Although as any new parent knows, that doesn’t last long! Becky was great about working with us though when Maxine needed a break to eat (or fuss
How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? How did it turn out? I was a little nervous about how she would behave, but overall she did great!
What is your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Be prepared for the shoot to take a few hours and don’t feel bad about it! Becky is super laid back and willing to work with you and your baby. It is hard to control how a baby is going to act at any given moment so just go with the flow and let it take as long as it needs to take.
Did you have a sentimental item at our shoot? The pillowcases that Maxine was photographed in were embroidered for me by my late grandmother Maxine. It was important for me to have pictures taken with Maxine in something her namesake had created.
How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? Our perfect Saturday is simply time together. I would say a big homecooked breakfast followed by a walk around the neighborhood or in the park. Then just relaxing at home or maybe a date night dinner out for mom and dad!
