A Floral and Bird Themed Session with Her Sibling

For this shoot, we were able to capture a variety of photograph options for this little girl’s parents.

When filling out the questionnaire about this upcoming newborn session, they didn’t say they had a specific theme or color palette in mind and were open to different poses and ideas. One thing that stood out though was that the theme of the nursery was birds and flowers. This was such a cute idea, and we easily incorporated it into their session by using either the nest prop of bunching up different fabrics to mimic a nest.

We also captured some neutral colored family and sibling photographs that could be put anywhere in their home and match their décor. How cute and affectionate is her two year old big brother?

A Colorful Sitter Session for a Cheerful Baby

This little girl was a bundle of smiles for this sitter session. We included an assortment of backdrops that matched both her cheerful floral dress and her cheerful personality. In addition, we used backdrops with purples, blues, pinks, and creams to complement her blue polka dotted onesie. This session also featured some great shots of her on the bed contrasted by an all-white background. For this we used a minimal amount of clothes and accessories, which allowed her to really stand out in the photograph. Besides, how can you resist a chance to show of her adorable baby rolls!

A Flowery, Feminine Newborn Session

This very feminine newborn session for little Hazel was inspired by her parent’s preferred color scheme.

Hazel’s parents couldn’t think of a particular theme but loved creams, peaches, dusty pinks, and purples. They also liked the idea of incorporating a flower crown and expressed that they liked many of the headbands I had posted on Facebook.

During this session, we took advantage of the many backdrops and accessories in the studio that fit their color scheme. We also tried many different headbands that had feminine flower accents or with colors that were appropriate for their palette.

We used a range of purple, blue, and cream backdrops and accessories for this newborn session; and we experimented with a selection of textures.

While it’s great to get pictures of a peacefully sleeping newborn, it’s also nice to get a few pictures with the baby’s eyes open.

It was a lot of fun to use different headbands on this little girl—especially when it contrasted with all that adorable dark hair.

The use of sailboats and coastal accessories and backdrops were a great addition to this session. It’s always fun to photograph a baby with props like that, and it provides a unique photograph her parents will always cherish.

A Colorful Sitter Session

Sitter sessions are always fun because they showcase your baby’s personality. This session with Aubree was no exception. We were able to capture every smile, every laugh, and every time she stuck out her little tongue.

This session incorporated a lot of blues and pinks, which we pulled from her dress. We even used some headbands that complemented the backdrops. These colors gave the shoot a light and fun feel.

A Sitter Session with a Vibrant Little Girl

This little one came to her sitter session ready to pose. Her colorful outfit allowed us to pull a lot of different colors to complement it, including pinks, yellows, purples, and mints. This made for a very colorful and varied shoot.

When not posing with this outfit on, we included some very feminine pink accessories, a flower headband, and pearls.

A Newborn Session with an Affectionate Big Sister

It was a pleasure to capture this family and their adorable baby and his big sister. During this shoot, she was so loving towards her new little brother.

For the color palette, we used a lot of soft blues and grays. These colors will go wonderfully with their home, and can still match their décor if they decide to change things up. We were even able to coordinate Big Sister’s dress with a variety of swaddling fabric options for Baby.

For this shoot, we also incorporated their love of fishing in a few photos. All we had to do was get creative with some props and the forest background.

A Newborn Photography Session with Some Cute Props

This session for snuggly newborn Thomas included a mostly neutral color palette, with lots of grey, navy, and cream accessories and backdrops. Despite this subdued palette, you can’t accuse this session of lacking personality. Thomas’s parents included their love of sports into this shoot. How cute is that little golf cart and plaid visor? And anybody can agree that the Michigan State football themed photo is adorable—despite your personal football affiliation. We were able to get some beautiful family shots for this session as well. The photographs of Wyatt with is Mom in her white dress were stunning, and she looked beautiful.

Newborn Session Inspired by Mom and Dad’s Love of the Outdoors

For this newborn photography session, Wyatt’s parents expressed that they wanted a session that consisted of neutral and earth tones with pops of color. To break up the neutrals in this shoot, we included a variety of textures with different knits, furs, and wooden props and backgrounds. The adorable elephant we used provided a great soft pop of color. Wyatt’s parents told me that they had an elephant and giraffe themed nursery, so we incorporated the elephant as well as a stuffed giraffe. We also included some greens throughout the session, and it gave us a chance to showcase some cute hats that complemented the background.

With the use of the earth tones and stuffed animal props, this session successfully incorporated the outdoors in a way that reflected the personality of this little family.
