Baby Boy Infant Portrait Session

Welcome Lincoln!

I had the opportunity to photograph sweet baby Lincoln at under two weeks old. I love photographing newborns in the first 5-14 days of life when babies are still so sleepy and love being curled up. We decided to start Lincoln's infant photos on the bean bag in my Hood River based photography studio. I love starting sessions on a bean bag where it's nice and warm and I can easily wrap the baby for cute and adorable baby pictures! I visit with parents before the session during a pre-consultation about the colors in their home and then when they arrive, I have a selection of studio props and blankets that they can choose from. We decided to use a warm brown blanket on the bean bag to compliment the colors in this family's home. I love how little Lincoln just pops in the picture and stands out from the nice contrasting background.

After taking pictures on the bean bag, I moved sleepy little Lincoln over to my wooden reclaimed wood backdrop (this is always a studio favorite). We set up a little basket and placed sleeping Lincoln in the basket. Newborn safety is extremely important to me so at all times we had a spotter right next to the basket in case Lincoln woke up or started to stir. Lincoln slept so peacefully in the basket and I was able to pose his adorable little hands under his head for a few darling pictures on the wooden set-up.

We ended Lincoln's newborn pictures with family photos against a neutral colored studio backdrop to keep a consistent feel to all the images throughout the session. I absolutely love including parents in newborn pictures. Someday you (and your child) will love looking back on these memories of when your baby was so little and bundled up in your arms!

Here's a sneak peek at Lincoln's darling baby pictures:
