Sunshine on a cloudy day- Baby A {Kailua newborn portraits}

Natural newborn portraits in studio in basket and on blanket
It may have been a gray day outside, but Miss A brought the sunshine! We captured so many sweet sleeping smiles during her studio newborn session. She has the best head of hair too!

Baby girl sleeping in little bed photos
A tiny bed fit for a little sleeping beauty- the doll bed really shows just how small newborns are. They grow so quickly that by about one month old, this bed won’t be big enough. Most newborns are photographed at about 6-12 days of age (or within 2 weeks hospital release for preemies/NICU babies) when they’re still small, sleepy and like to curl up into womblike poses.

Brand new family portraits with one week old baby
Family portraits are often my favorites- there’s nothing like celebrating the love and joy a new baby brings. These sweet moments with mom and dad are to be cherished. Often new moms aren’t feeling their best- pregnancy and delivery are physically demanding- and are sometimes reluctant to pose with baby, but I promise the results are always worth it. Each mama and baby I photograph is unique and special, and every single one is beautiful. Love and a soft smile are even more transformational than makeup. It was definitely an honor to meet and work with Miss A and her family.
