Newark NJ Newborn Photographer

This wonderful family reached out to me after baby was already here. Most of the time that doesn’t work out (newborn sessions should be booked in your 2nd trimester!), but luckily I had had a cancelation and I was able to squeeze them in. It was a wonderful session, and I couldn’t have asked for a better baby!

In our session planning we of course went over colors for baby as well as family photos. I can’t say I wasn’t surprised when mom said, “red is our favorite color, we want family photos in RED.” And actually, red looked absolutely gorgeous for them together! Since dad’s favorite soccer team is Benfica (one of Portugal’s top three national teams), he wanted some portraits with baby and him wearing his Benfica jersey. And we created a beautiful red setup for baby as well with a mini Benfica onesie too just for dad!

As typical newborn clothing is generally loose fitting on newborns for the purpose of capturing their sweet little features, we layered baby over the onesie, and I think it’s just perfect!

The other pink and yellow sets were a sweet homage to this adorable springtime baby. I absolutely love the yellow floral sets. I appreciate mom pushing the boundaries of what we would normally consider “newborn” colors for the family images. They are some of my favorite in this whole set!

Mom and baby girl just looked so gorgeous together.

We put all of these gorgeous photos in a custom red linen finish album that will look spectacular in their home!

I know we are all feeling overwhelmed while pregnant and once baby arrives. Photos might not be at the top of your list of priorities, until it’s “too late”. Even if you’ve just had your baby, and have no idea when you should have reached out for a session, just reach out anyway. There is always a chance of an opening becoming available.
