Classic Newborn Portraits | Charlotte NC Baby Photographer

There is no denying these classic baby boy newborn portrait will be treasured for a life time.  The classic colors of navy, lights blues, and neutrals makes for photos that will transcend the trends.  While I love photos with props and cute little like the popular fox and unicorn set ups, but there is always a place for classic portraits and this session embodies classic and timeless.

Since baby boy was born Beginning of December, we also wanted to take one Christmas photo.  The Christmas set I chose for this boy included some dark wood tones, wood, and a bit of Christmas feel.  All the items were very easy to take out and also make a non Christmas photo they can display all year.   Dad was a huge help for me for lots of the photo.  He was very involved with helping move equipment and spot his baby boy.  Thank you Dad!  Hopefully someday I can have an assistant.  Maybe in 8 years when my four year old is 12 🙂  We then moved into a few poses on my blue fur.

We started with a wrapped pose in my wood bucket.  I chose all neutrals for this photo to bring out his warm skin tone and it turns out to be my favorite photos from the session!  I love the warm wood,  and textures from the wool layer from Ababa Baby.  The simple jersey knit stretch warp is from Mimosa House

We then went into a few poses on my bean bag with the soft blue color, after which baby boy woke up and needed a feeding.  Usually when baby wakes up, this is when i take the opportunity to take some parent photos.  They are in Mom and Dad’s arms and I will wrap them up nice and tight so typically they will fall bake asleep. For this little boy, I wrapped him up nice an tight but he wanted his little let out, so I went with it and love it.  It shows a bit of his personality.

Lat we finished up with a few more photos on a white blanket paired with navy blue, which is a classic color combination.
