Photography Newborn, AZ.

As you know I love newborn babies. They are my primary photography focus. I feel so blessed to be able to hug all of these angelic newborns. This sweet little girl came to see me at just five days new here at my studio in Gilbert, AZ. So new, so tiny, so innocent.  Babies come into the world knowing only love, it’s simply beautiful. “A baby fills a hole in your heart that you didn’t know was there. “unknown

She has the most beautiful long eyelashes, itty bitty fingers with tiny little cuticles, fantastic hair, and amazing pout lips! I love babies pout lips. Did I mention the cutest wee little toes? I love me some baby toes! This tiny ball of love slept “like a baby” throughout her entire session, and was such a curly newborn. I was able to put her into all of these poses, we were able to even get some smiles out of her. She was adorable. In fact, she did not wake up once. This is a photographer’s dream come true.

Tips for booking your new baby photo session

Mom and I coordinated colors in advance, she was big on neutral tones which I love. I find that photographing babies on neutral tones really allows you to focus on the beauty of the baby. Sometimes bright colors tend to take away from the baby or they can be a bit distracting. I think you will be able to figure out from reviewing my portfolio , that I prefer neutral, natural, earthy toned colors. Adding pops of color here and there is something that you will find me doing. My style is to keep my sessions simple and classic.

I always try to educate potential newborn clients that contact me in advance. But for those that do not, I try to share on my blog that it is super important to book your newborn session within the first two weeks of life. The newer the baby the sleepier they are. This makes posing them so much easier. I also like to let clients know that not every baby can do every pose. It really is dependent on them.  So if you wish to book your newborn session, try to reach out to me early. We will have fun planning and eventually bringing our plan to fruition when that sweet bundle of joy arrives. For photography newborn posing ideas visit my Pinterest page.

Hi there, I am Melissa. We moved to Arizona when I was five years old, so I consider myself a desert native. I am the mother of three wonderful children, a wife to an amazingly loving and extremely intelligent man, and a lover of animals. (We live on a small farm) I am the proud pet owner of a Chocolate Lab, miniature wiener dog, 26 chickens, 2 goats, a horse, and a miniature horse named Switch. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and 13 years ago I was able to form a successful small business doing what I love. I feel so blessed that God gave me this gift that I can pass along to others and bless them with.
