The OMGawd session: Raleigh newborn photographer Michelle Studios Photography
Baby Salem came in for her newborn portraits on Tuesday. We are calling this the OMGawd session because every five minutes or so either her daddy Mike, her mommy Cassie or I would have to exclaim “OMGawd!”. She was absolutely adorable in every single set up that we used. Each head band that we put on, wrap or hat looks so incredible adorable around her sweet face. Her precious little body, so new and sweet, was incredibly cute in every set up. She was perfect in every way possible.
Have I said before that newborn sessions are SO MUCH FUN? Cassie, Mike and I laughed and oooh-ed and aaah-ed through the whole session. Having the beautiful images of your baby is the best part of a newborn session but the experience is also a wonderful part of the package. I was thrilled for them and it was so nice to see that dad was just as excited as mom. I almost wish that I had had a video camera set up to capture the smiles on mom and dad’s face as I posed Salem and photographed her. At one point while we were in the studio I had to break for a minute and go get my daughter to have a peek at how cute she looked. The image with the pink hat and the big huge poms on the side was so cute and so funny we just had to share it with one more person.
I have specialized in the art of newborn photography since 2004 and have photographed over a thousand newborns BUT I can truly say that I am still honored and SUPER excited to photograph each new little person. I love my job. The excitement from the parents at this very special time and the sweetness of each new little person is such a rush.
Salem was so relaxed and easy to photograph at 7 days young. No matter how I placed her hands, feet or face she was relaxed and even smiled in her sleep. She loved the little newborn swing in the fairy garden and probably would have slept there for hours. I want every newborn’s session to be unique but I have to say that all of my new moms and dads want that shot. It’s magical.
Congratulations Mike and Cassie. I can tell how much you love her and each other. Welcome to the world Salem, it was so great to meet you. This is a small sample of the wonderful newborn portraits that we got of your new daughter. See if you can make it through them and not say “OMGawd” again.
