It is always a huge honor to be contacted by friends who would like me to photograph their family, especially for newborn photos! This mama and I both grew up in Durham and she messaged me several months ago about possibly meeting them after their son, Baby L, was born this summer. Just so happened that I was coming in town for another appointment near her due date and the timing was perfect! I met this family of 4 in the Bull City and sweet Baby L was 14 days new. He was such a good cuddler and loved being swaddled. He decided to stay awake for a good part of the shoot and his facial expressions were cracking me up! Wide awake shots are usually rare (and usually parents favorites!) so it is special to capture in a baby’s first 2 weeks of life. We were able to incorporate an incredible handmade quilt that will be in his new nursery – love the gorgeous bold colors! Baby L’s big sister M loves him SO much. Whenever I have a newborn session with siblings under age 3 I pretty much know that I won’t be in charge…and big sis M gave us a few of the prettiest pouts I’ve ever seen 😉 She wasn’t so sure about smiling for the camera but I stole a few! But after a bit of magic in photoshop I managed to get a few sweet sibling shots AND a fabulous family portrait of everyone for their final gallery <3 Here are some favorites from their newborn session. Enjoy!
