Erika Michelle will no longer take new bookings.  If your session is currently booked, we will proceed as scheduled. 

I have decided to go back to my career as a special education teacher.  Due to the demands of this position, I need to take a step back from the buisness.  

Thank you for your support. 

Little Bunny | Charlotte NC Newborn Photographer

Up on the blog today is this sweet little spring time Bunny.  I first met this family back in September for a family session.  in which we also included a pregnancy announcement photo. The March due date couldn’t get here fast enough.  Mom and Dad chose to wait to find out the gender, which I just love! It’s not often these days that the couple will choose to wait, but I truly admire the patiences couples have when they do. I certainly could not wait to find out the gender with my two babies.  Finally, little baby Jack made his appearance mid March!

For this spring time newborn session, Mom purchased a few bunny and lamb hats.  A few of the hats were too small, as this baby boy was 9 lbs!  But we were able to get some others to work well.  We decided light and bright for baby boy bunny’s newborn session.  We chose lots of whites with soft blues, greens, and yellow.  We first stated with a sibling photo.  I absolutely love the dress Mom had chosen for her girl.  The big sister smocking is adorable! Even baby Jack gave us a smile!

Next we  moved into photos with just Jack himself.  We incorporated two bunny hats on the white blanket and one lamb hat in my white bucket.  Jack was super calm for me and allowed me to get all these photos in!  Once he got his initial feeding, poop, and spit up done, he was good to go and was very calm. Mom’s biggest request was to get some naked photos and I’m so glad Jack allowed me to do so!  The naked phots can be the hardest to achieve since, they do not have diapers on so they are extra sensitive to any cold breeze.  I always use a space heater to blow heat on to the baby when they are naked to keep the nice and sleepy.   My favorite photo is the light blue bunny hat on the white fabric. It simple, clean, and just sweet.
