Baby Jaxson: Raleigh newborn photographer

Baby Jaxson came in for his newborn portraits. He was five days old and totally adorable. As a newborn photographer I just love it when the babies come in so young. This was a mini session and because he was so young he slept really well. This allowed us to get many cute images in a short period of time. Mom decided to use my beautiful gardens rather than my newborn studio to photograph her new son Jaxson. I was so excited that she made this choice because I just love to photograph the newborns outside. Of course mom’s feed the babies and we change outfits and set ups in the warmed up newborn studio. His mom, dad and grandpa Don all came in to watch his photo shoot. We all had so much fun looking at him in the cute poses and props. It was fun to get to know so many members of Jaxson’s family and I can tell he is going to be one loved little guy.

I think my favorite shot is the featured image in the circular swing. It is my very favorite newborn prop. It looks just gorgeous hanging in my grapevine. It also looks nice with little boys or little girls. As with every other baby Jaxson did so well outside. Again, as with most of the babies that I photograph outside, he smiled several times. I think they love to hear the soft sounds of nature and the nickers of the horses in the pastures all around my yard. Mom on the other hand was not having fun with any bugs that are in gardens. We all got a few laughs as she spooked a few times.

I have to make sure to look for special props for boys because they are more difficult to find. I just love the images of Jaxson in the Coke wagon. He fit into it just right and looked so cute.

I also just love a little bonnet type hat on a newborn boy. It’s the only time they will wear one I am sure. Their little cheeks look so cute and full in a hat like the one Jaxson has on insome of the shots. Doesn’t he look adorable?

Having specialized in newborn photography for over a decade I am extremely comfortable handling them and posing them. It really is fun for family members to get to watch. Jaxson’s family like many others are so surprised when they see how well a very young baby will do when the session is set up properly and the photographer is experienced with babies. I also know a few tricks and was able to get Mr. Jaxson to take a pacifier. I gave them one as a gift to take home. smile.

Here are some of the sweet portraits from Jaxson’s session. I hope you all enjoy them.

His little baby lips match the red wagon. This is so sweet and you can really tell he is on the farm.

I just love this image of baby Jaxson. It looks so artistic.  I want my customers to have artistic portraits to hang on the wall. This would be beautiful printed on a large canvas.  Raleigh baby photography
