After nearly 10 years as a professional photographer, I have a lot of experience working with newborn babies. I hardly ever have a baby that is truly challenging to photograph which is good news.  However sweet Marissa Grace may have been the EASIEST baby girl I have photographed at my studio! Her mama contacted me to be her Olympia newborn photographer after she found out I was working on this display at St Joseph Hospital where she is a nurse.  She has perfect timing, since her baby was just under two weeks still.  Babies under two weeks tend to sleep better while I pose them and curl up womb-like rather than stretching out their limbs.  This means I can get the most variety and cute poses while they just snooze away in baby dreamland.  Of course I am also an expert at working with older and more alert or awake babies for newborn sessions too.

Marissa’s entire session was styled around this beautiful wildflower bouquet I happened to pick up from our local Trader Joe’s grocery store. The colors were rustic and muted, with a hint of salmon pink, golden yellow, white, and greens.  I couldn’t resist tucking one of those sweet blooms in to her hat for a shot too.  I love finding inspiration for real flowers in newborn pictures and seeing how I can use them multiple ways.
