We have been photographing newborns for many years now. In prior years, professional baby photos didn’t start until around 3 months. We love the change to have the first session within the first weeks after baby is born. If you have kids you know how much they change in the first few months. Those newborn photos show truly how small these little bundles of joy really are when they arrive. This session was the second newborn we have done for this family. Big brother has had his photos taken with us a few times since then and we know we will take more in the coming years. Mom decided to focus on baby girl this time. Perhaps some family or sibling photos next time, but this one was her time to shine. Shine she did! She was awake when we started the session so we were able to capture some photos of her bright eyes before she fell asleep. She slept the rest of the session between wraps, outfit changes and even a few visits from the cat! Dad is a golf enthusiast so baby girl received a swaddle with golf images on it, a must for a few photos that dad can put on his desk! Mom mentioned that she didn’t have many bows or girly things for her, since she figured she wouldn’t  be wearing them much anyway. That is no problem because we have plenty of things we can use during the session. She did, however, purchase a lace outfit with a bow on the back. It was absolutely adorable, probably our favorite photo from the whole session. Although, there are so many other good ones as well, we love photographing newborns. We wanted to keep these photos pretty simple, so a clean white background is where we started. However, we had to add the pops of pink and purple for baby girl. She just let us wrap and re-wrap to our hearts content while she slept. Mom has too many photos to pick from now because baby girl did such a great job. Until next time baby girl, we can’t wait to see you at the next session! #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #newbornphotography #babygirl #inhomesession #newbornsessionathome #newbornphotos #photosnewborn #photographynewborn #newbornbabygirlphotos
