Is finding Classic Minimalist Newborn Baby Photography Greer SC proving to be difficult? Are you not a fan of the over the top sets and props and just want a session focused on your baby’s natural beauty without all the fuss? This is exactly the experience I strive to give my clients. While I do poses and use props, I try to keep the colors muted and showcase your baby just as they are. I also think it’s really important to respect your baby as a person during the session. Every person has positions that are comfortable and newborns are no different! Read along below to learn more about Ava’s session as an “older” month plus old newborn or click here if you’re interested in setting up your own session. Ava was an “older” newborn which many photographers will refuse and recommend a session at six month, but I will never turn away a Classic Minimalist Newborn Baby Photography Greer SC. Older babies have more opinions on which poses are more comfortable and have shorter windows of sleep, but they’re still beautiful and worth taking the time to create memories for you. I loved taking all these little detail photos below while Ava was settling in a deeper sleep. Her little lips are adorable. Ava also preferred being wrapped. It was cozy and comforting for her and I loved her skin tone against this sweet mauve color. She really liked the coziness of this bucket and wooden bread bowl. I also really loved Ava’s images in black and white. Her features and dark hair really stand out so beautifully. I provide both color and black and white of every image that my clients choose for me to edit. Finally, I had Ava’s mama Amanda join her daughter in the images. Most mom’s hesitate to be in images so soon after child birth. Our bodies feel out of sorts and feel unfamiliar. However, I always encourage mamas to jump into a few images because their baby needs to see how much they were loved from the very beginning. Plus our children think our love for them makes us so beautiful.
I was delighted to be chosen for Oliver’s Timeless Emotional Greenville SC Newborn Photographer. This little guy had a rough start and ended up with a (thankfully) brief NICU stay, but it also meant that many local photographers wouldn’t take Oliver for newborn images as he was just over 14 days. I think that’s silly and I’ll try newborn photos for you at any age. Your session is about capturing your little love’s beauty at any age whether or not they sleep or want to curl up in fancy poses.
Clearly, Oliver did manage to fall asleep after a lot of cuddling, nursing and coaxing, but as you’ll see below his awake images are just as emotional and timeless as these perfectly posed images. He may have been having a growth spurt, but in any case, I always let the newborn lead the session. Oliver (and your baby) are little persons and I want them to feel safe and comfortable at all times.
One of the things I appreciated so much about Oliver’s mom Tiffany and dad Grant is their attitude of gratitude. Like all new parents, they were exhausted. Yet, both of them expressed gratitude for the NICU experience and for the joy of being in the studio for these pictures. Oliver is so loved and that gratitude is a gift his parents will give him. You can see their grateful joy in these photos.
Oliver, may you always know how cherished you are from your tiny toes to your fuzzy hair. Tiffany and Grant, may you, even on the toughest of days, hang onto that practice of simple gratitude knowing that it is the best gift that you can give your boy.

This little guy is a miracle that Celeste didn’t see coming. Celeste brought her sister to the session and I was so glad she did! Her sister convinced Celeste to jump in a picture or two. Postpartum is a pretty vulnerable time for body confidence, so I always shoot angles with that in mind. I think this is hands down my favorite image from this session because it shows Celeste’s quite joy and unexpected delight in baby Trace. In all of my sessions, I try to pose through a flow of images. It’s my way of responding to each baby’s preferences while also accommodating the requested poses. This set shows you the flow of posing that Trace liked most. We started wrapped and as Trace feel more deeply into sleep, I unwrapped him in the warm studio. In between these images, I captured the little details above. I always want your baby cozy and comfortable. Although he was closer to a month old he was still super tiny and curly. This little salad/dough bowl is only about 8 inches across!Are you wanting to book your Fresh Simple Newborn Pictures Greer South Carolina now?

Did your baby have an unexpected stay in the NiCU? Are you looking for a Post NICU Newborn Photographer who will photograph your newborn regardless of age? One of my favorite things is the joy of holding and photographing your tiny miracle. I’m less concerned with chronological age and more concerned with capturing your sweet baby’s beauty. I love all the details of your baby: his fingers, his eyelashes, and his tiny hands. I don’t mind a little extra soothing and a little more baby led posing rather than photographer led. Your little one has a story to tell and I’d be honored to illustrate it.
This beautiful NICU baby’s name is Marley. His NICU journey amid the very first few weeks of the Covid-19 pandemic was completely unexpected. He was early, but not so early that mama Ericka expected him to be whisked away to the NICU. But Marley is a fighter and he fought his way out of a scary diagnosis and came home.
Marley was still a tiny little guy, weighing well under 6 pounds when I met him. He was laid back and very sleepy which was unexpected but welcome. He loved the comfort of the wrap, perhaps because he’d spent so much time cuddled up in Ericka’s arms.
I had fun curling Marley up into the tiniest little props and showcasing his beautiful hands and feet. We even snuck a little bear bonnet on him!
At the very end of the session, I dressed Marley in this little knitted footed PJ set from the studio wardrobe. He woke up just enough to get a sweet awake picture and these remaining images.

Soothing and Calming
Isla is the sweet newborn girl featured in these session images. Isla is an “older newborn” in the 3-6 week range. Many newborn photographers will tell you this age is simply impossible to capture in curly poses, but that’s obviously not true! Yes, newborns at this age are a little more awake, but that just means we get good eye contact like in the image above.
Isla required a little more soothing and calming than your typical newborn and she wanted to be posed upright while she fell asleep. I always take your baby’s preferences into account during posing. It’s more important to have a safe and happy baby than to make sure we get “the pose” we wanted most.
Feminine Simplicity on White
Once Isla fell asleep in her wrap, I was able to transition her into this set of poses on white. I love posing girl emotional newborn photos on white.
After the white blanket, I moved Isla to a mauve blanket for a bit of color. This bonnet, wrap, and headbands set by Avonli Baby are studio favorites. I love compiling a set of props for my clients to choose from so that all they need to do is show up to the session rather than worrying about purchasing and bringing extra items.
All clients are given the opportunity to customize their pose request. One of the things that was most important to Isla’s mama was detail shots. Especially including their wedding bands. Aren’t these the sweetest? And those little squishy lips are to die for!
