Beckham was just the cutest 12 day old newborn boy when he came to my studio. Mom had her maternity session a few weeks prior when she was 36 weeks pregnant. I loved seeing her again and getting to meet the rest of her family, including her newest addition! Beckham was wide awake in the beginning of his newborn photography session. His eyes are so big and he loved to stare at me. His big brother was just as adorable and was so great with his new little brother.

Newborn sessions typically take place when baby is between 6 – 16 days new. Beckham was 12 days at the time of his session. It’s one of my favorite ages to photograph little ones. They are more used to being out of the womb and touched, but still so sleepy.

There is nothing like the bond of brothers. This reminds me of when my 2nd son was born. My oldest just loved to hold him and they were so cute together. While they have moments of fighting now, they love to play with each other and have all the same interests. These boys are so lucky to have each other!

Session colors

When mom came in for her maternity session, we looked over my newborn photography props. I have so many colors to choose from and so many different shades. I love for each of my sessions to be unique and to match the style of the nursery or home. Mom wanted to use mostly blues, green, and tan. We also used a little bit of gray. I love mix and matching the colors for everything to flow and look great together.
