Baby Archie | Dunwoody newborn photographer

Blog| Dunwoody Newborn Photographer

Meet baby Archie. His cuteness only begins with his name, wait till you see just how adorable he is! His spiky hair had me fall instantly in love! And yep, no surprise, he was just a perfect little bundle of joy and oh so easy for me too!

I shot this session at this sweet family’s home which they moved into literally days prior! Can you imagine the stress? You never would have known it being there with them though. They were over the moon about their newest addition, and big sister was sweet and curious about her baby brother!

Dad had to get to work so I wrapped Archie up and we started with some family shots.

So much love amongst this sweet family. I love capturing their interactions and bond – all those hands on baby. Awww! *insert one million heart eye emojis!!!

There are endless lighting opportunities with photography. But my favorite type of light is backlight. With babies it’s no exception, and his nursery had the most perfect light for it. That window light behind him – love it – I could shoot there all day!

Look at this adorable and proud big sister! I may or may not have alternated tickling her with snapping the sibling shots. 😉

To wrap it up, I ended with some portraits of baby on his own. I pulled some blues and greens for him but my favorites are always the neutrals. Whites and creams just showcase the simple beauty of a newborn perfectly in my opinion.

Archie was so good he let me transition him through quite a few set ups! As a photographer, you never know exactly how a newborn session will flow – but a little heat and white noise always help.

My heart just stops with the simple detail shots. Those little eyelashes and lips!

I love to end the posed portion of my sessions with mom or dad’s hands holding baby like this, it just makes for such a gorgeous black and white!
