Welcoming Baby Michael with a Pure & Natural Newborn Session: Saratoga Springs & Boston Newborn Photographer

Spring is all about celebrating new life, and that is no exception here in the Nicole Starr Photography studio!  With so many newborns coming in for their sessions, I have felt like the luckiest girl in the world getting to cuddle with all of these sweet new babies!  

Michael was born only one day after Lucas, our last newborn session that I shared on the blog with you.  This tiny and healthy little baby arrived a few weeks before his due date, and when he came to the studio at just over 5 pounds I knew we would show how tiny he was in his photographs.  I love it when they curl up in these sleepy little poses, just like they were in the womb only a few short days ago!

You know me, and I always love the pure & natural newborn images.  Soft colors, natural textures, and classic styles that keep the focus on the baby rather than on the props.  Michael's session was no exception, and I just love how his beautiful skin shines in these images against the creamy fabrics.

However, my FAVORITE images from his session are the ones with his happy new parents.  They were excited, amazed, in awe, and impressed by this tiny human being that they brought into the world together.  Michael loved cuddling up with his mommy and daddy, and I just adore these gorgeous parent shots that we captured on camera.  They are such naturals as a new mom & dad, and the peacefulness that they brought into the room with their baby was so beautiful.   Congratulations, Vinessa & Mike!

Finally, we were so happy to capture this sweet moment of Michael in his father's police hat honoring his dedication to the Boston Police Department.  This one will be going up on a wall in their home!

Every time a family walks into the photography studio with their brand new baby, I feel so excited and honored to capture these sweet moments for them.   New moms & dads have had their world turned upside down and inside out with the arrival of their little miracle baby, and they are adjusting to all sorts of new schedules and routines, but for a few hours we slow it all down and just soak in the newness of their tiny little one.  We celebrate this amazing little life and capture all of the tiny details.

Every newborn session is filled with lots of cuddles, and Lucas's session was no exception.  This little boy was such a sweetheart and I loved capturing his tiny newborn goodness from the other side of my lens.  His parents both enjoyed the delivery of his wall art and fine art album yesterday, making today the perfect day to showcase his studio newborn session with a blog post!

This little boy was such a good sleeper, and he was in dreamland for most of our session!  I just love these beautiful images that we were able to capture of this sleepy little baby during his newborn session.  When his mom told me that she wanted some springtime colors for her springtime baby, I was so happy to pull out my favorite vintage quilt for his set up.

These sleepy little photos below are some of my favorites, and I just love how tiny and cozy Lucas is all tucked into his little bed.  Plus, doesn't he have the most handsome and adorable profile in the second image?  Those little lips and that tiny bump of a nose, plus his mini mohawk.... ahhhhhh!!!  Doesn't it melt your heart?!?!

This little boy is already so, so loved.  Baby Frankie (named after his father) arrived on a chilly winter day, and his big sisters rushed to the hospital to shower him in kisses and to visit with mom and dad.  

Although their postpartum room in the hospital was bustling with activity, there was an intense calm that surrounded the family as they "oooohh-ed" and "aaaahh-ed" over their newest addition while the most magical light came streaming through the windows. 

I just love the LOVE captured in these moments.  The way the new mom watches her oldest daughter while she meets her baby brother?  Oh my goodness, it melts my heart!  This has got to be one of my favorite stories I have ever captured on camera.

It is such an amazing moment, welcoming a new baby and slowing it all down to meet your new little brother.  You've waited a very long time for this moment, and it is truly magical to hold that little boy in your arms and know that he is all yours.

It took Little Sister a little while to warm up to the new baby, but surrounded by the ones that love her the most, she was definitely intrigued enough to cozy up close and meet this new member of her family.

Watching this family of 5 bask in the happiness and love that comes with their baby's arrival was truly magical.  They are just the sweetest and I had such a wonderful time getting to know them as they celebrated this huge milestone in their family's story.  

Thank you so much, B family, for inviting me into your lives to capture this story for you.  You will truly treasure these moments for the rest of your lives.

And of course, tiny baby yawns and teeny baby toes are my favorite details to capture.  Baby Frankie was no exception, and he makes yawns and toes look oh-so-adorable.  Such a sweetheart!
