Danvers Newborn Photographer :: Baby J
Miss J and her family from Danvers came to my studio for her newborn photos. And this sweet little lady rocked her newborn portraits! Of course, she rocked her family photos, too. They included mom, dad, baby J and her grandmother. Grandmothers are so important to our little ones, and I always love when they come along for newborn sessions. How sweet is the three generations photo of Miss J, Mama, and Grandma? I love it so much!
Chances are, if you’ve been around our Instagram for a while, you’ve seen Miss J. She comes back for just about all of the seasonal mini sessions that I offer. I love getting to watch “my” little ones grow up. And this little lady is always such a joy when she comes to my studio. You can see her red hair in some of these photos. It has just gotten redder as she has gotten older, and I love it so much!
I’ve also photographed mama again since this session. I actually did headshots for her company! Headshots aren’t something I do often, but they are something that I offer.
Styling Choices for this Danvers Newborn Photo Session
For Miss J’s session it was all about pink and white. I love the way the light pink wrap looks on the white fur. But I really, really love the all white set up shown at the very bottom of this post. This really shows how even a monochromatic look can have contrast thanks to different textures. The white wood-like floor, the smooth white swaddle, the textured floral fabric she’s resting on. All are so similar in color, but their varying textures create visual interest. Accessories are a great way to add a pop of color, or to add extra texture to a portrait. I have a huge assortment of accessories in my studio for you to use. But if you want something special, or if you want one to keep after your photos, I always recommend Etsy for the best handmade newborn accessories.
But one of my absolute favorite aspects of this session is the addition of the feather angel wings. They were a request from mama to honor a loved one who has passed away. I know that these photos are going to be extra special for mama, and for Miss J as she grows up. Being able to celebrate and honor loved ones, and create keepsakes like this, are some of the most rewarding aspects of my job as a newborn photographer.

Decorating your Nursery with your Newborn Portraits
One of my favorite ways to display newborn photos is definitely in nurseries. I especially love when the portraits stay in the child’s room as they grow up. My girls are seven and they love looking at baby portraits of themselves. This is one of the reasons I always ask clients what colors, themes, and styles they are using to decorate their nursery. If I am able to incorporate the color scheme into the newborn portraits, it makes it even easier to use them to decorate. Not sure if they’ll work in your baby’s space? Can’t decide between canvases or framed art? I can create a custom wall mock-up so that you can see how it looks. You take a photo of your wall, and I digitally add your portraits. This can be especially helpful if you already have decor you want to keep in the space. Below is an example of one from this session. I used the decorative wall shelf as inspiration for the three piece wall gallery above Miss J’s crib.
