Naya | Baby Photographer in Arlington, VA
This was such a fun, colorful session! Raghad and Mansour contacted me about photographing the one-month-old baby girl, Naya. She was teeny tiny when she was born, five pounds of joy that could fit in the palm of your hand, so we waited just a few weeks to bring her in. And let me just tell you, I’ve never seen anything sweeter than this wide-eyed beauty!
Currently, they don’t have any professional family portraits displayed in their home, so I wanted to provide a few options for them. A picture of baby Naya could brighten any room, and they loved the idea of incorporated several feminine color pallets. I couldn’t wait to get started!
This precious girl actually stayed awake for a large portion of the session, but she was as happy as could be. She showed of her gorgeous eyes, and I took advantage of those moments by getting some incredible close ups of their baby girl. Even while sleeping she was quite expressive. I love the photo of her sweet smile as she drifted off to dreamland.
If you’re looking for color inspiration for your upcoming newborn session, this is a great one to check out. We used light blue, shades of pink, lavender, teal, and violet. We used the full spectrum of cool, pastel colors all the way to warm, rich shades of red and orange. And with this cutie as the focal point, I love them all!
I also made sure to get plenty neutral, classic shots that they could use for just about anything. They already have two handsome boys, so I could tell that it was fun for Raghad to do this pretty, whimsical session for her baby girl.
The newborn stage is the perfect time to get creative with photos. Most babies sleep, and they aren’t old enough to feel embarrassed about doing themed shots. You can do just about anything, and your little bundle of joy will go right along with it. As your baby get older, it’s always fun to show them photos from when they were a tiny baby. Toddlers love seeing themselves dressed up as teddy bears or sleeping in the crook of a crescent moon. These are photos that you can share and enjoy together for many years to come.
Welcome home, baby Naya! Thanks for sharing your joy with our studio!
