Newborn Photo Round Up :: Baby Boys

A Round Up of Newborn Photo Sessions on the Blog :: Baby Boy Edition

A collage of 8 different newborn baby boy portraits.

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails! That might be what little boys are made of. But baby boy newborn sessions are made of fluffy furs, thick knit blankets, hats, props, and so much more. I love getting the chance to look back and past sessions. Which is why these newborn photo round ups are so much fun for me to write! These are all of the newborn baby boy photo sessions that have been featured on my blog for the last six months.

Simple Newborn Portraits

I have a huge selection of props for newborn baby boy photos. But sometimes, less is more! Which is why I also really love the more simple newborn photos. Whether that means baby in their birthday suit posed on a blanket or a fur. Or maybe your little one being held in your (or a sibling’s) arms. Either way, these photos let the baby truly be the star of the show. In the end, it’s up to you whether you choose props or simplicity.

Newborn Portraits with Props

I love props, and I love when clients love them too. Most of the props that you see are ones that I have available in my studio. I have everything from beds and baskets, to boats and crescent moons. Every so often a client will bring a prop from home that they want to include and I am always happy to do so!
