A Golden Newborn Session | Charlotte NC newborn photographer

Two beautiful golden retrievers are excited to announce the arrival of  their baby brother Nicholaus!  Baby Nick was in prayers for years and he is a true blessing.

I first met tis family for their maternity session back in April.  Elivs and Hank are two awesome Golden Retrievers and we got so many sweet photos of them during their maternity session.  This time, we got to take pictures of their new little brother!!

We were able to get some sweet p host fo the family. I mis judge their size when I asked Dad to take a family photo on their bed.  He looked at me like..what??  Then he got the dogs and I realized their size. They re two big goldens!!  lol, We manage to get a few sweet more candid photos on the bed.  We also manage to get one photo with their brother.  Because baby Nick is so small, we felt it was best to do this photo as a composite in photoshop.  I took a picture of each dog with the empty bucket.  Then I took a picture of the baby in the bucket and priced it all together in photoshop.  That way Mom was able to get a picture of all her babies, but done so safely.   I think it turned out wonderful!


Another photo that was on Mom’s wish list was a photo signifying her struggle to conceive.  She when through three rounds of infertility treatments to have baby Nick.  In addition, in the early stages of pregnancy, Nick was a twin, but sadly the twin did not make it.  The rainbow hearts represent the rainbow after the storm and the photo with all the syringes shows the struggle they went through to have their precious little baby.  As mom was getting out all her clean syringes, she started to get emotional just remembering the ups and downs.  I’m so happy there is a beautiful rainbow at the end of her storm.

Dad is also a huge Western Virginia fan, so we we included a few photos for him 🙂

I need the session with a few photos in their gorgeous nursery.
