Royal Oak Michigan Newborn Photographer | Baby Alyzah

Royal Oak Michigan Newborn Photographer

 

Baby Alyzah came into the studio last month with her big sister and she was such a happy baby!  So full of smiles and gorgeous hair!  We got lots of poses done before she peeked her little eyes open.  I  love the big smiles we got at the end of her session!  It is enough to melt your heart!  These were some of Mom’s favorites from the session, and mine too!

My studio is based just outside of Royal Oak, Michigan and I serve all surrounding areas.  I have been a newborn photographer for the past 8 years and also love shooting maternity portraits.

 

During your pre-session consult, we will plan out the session including colors you like, colors you don’t like, props and poses you prefer and if parents, or siblings will be included in the session.  Also, if there is anything that I need to purchase to make your session perfect based on what you are wanting, I have the opportunity to do that in most cases with enough notice.

I encourage my parents to think outside the norm and incorporate sports, careers, family traditions or heirlooms, and other meaningful things into their newborn sessions.

Almost anything goes!

Posed Newborn Photo Session | Troy Michigan Newborn Photographer

Posed newborn photo sessions are my favorite style of newborn photography!

It allows me to be creative and I love creating beautiful images for my clients!

Arianna’s posed newborn photo session was amazing!  She was absolutely beautiful and was so relaxed during her session.

Typical newborn session are done in my studio and are styled with colors and props of your choice. I usually start with parent and sibling photos.  I love this part of the session and want to make sure baby is at their best and Mom & Dad are not too relaxed.  Often I will see how siblings feel and if they are fine, we will also get their part of the session done so they can either relax and watch a show, or sometimes one of the parents or grandparent will take them home or off for lunch.

After parents and sibling photos are done, I usually do a few of baby while they are wrapped, either in a prop, or just on the beanbag where I do my posed shots.  I will change wraps and eventually get them down to their birthday suit and do some posed shots which are super sweet!

I usually go until baby signals that they are hungry or need a diaper change. I typically shoot for 2-3 hours including time for feeding and changing.

Prop shots are usually done last when I can wrap baby again if needed.  I have lots of bowls, crate, beds, and even a baby posing chair with different cover options that I love!

Check out the Starbucks coffee prop!  She gave me such a huge smile!

My two favorite props are my Starbucks coffee and my chubby brown bear!

Detail photos are another thing I try to always get!

They are a great addition to an album or make a special collage for the nursery.

Remembering how teeny-tiny their little toes were is so awesome!

I have lots of headband options for girls and lots of outfits for both boys and girls.

There is no need to bring your own outfits, but if there is a certain style or color that you want, with enough notice I can order from my vendor in time for your session.

That is why I recommend booking your session at the beginning of your 2nd trimester.

Newborn Baby | Birmingham Michigan | Melissa Anne Photography

Newborn baby and big brother photos melt my heart!!

I love when big brother poses for photos with their new baby!

Big brother Henry was a pro and we didn’t have to work for these photos.

Someday they will love having these which make me so happy and gives my work great purpose.

Holden obliged by opening his eyes and quickly falling back to sleep!

 

I recommend booking your newborn session at the start of your 2nd trimester to ensure a spot on my schedule!  I only take a limited number of newborn sessions per month to accomodate any changes I may need to make!  Getting baby in for their photos between 5-14 days is ideal since they will go into poses better and are still sleepy.

michigan maternity photo session melissa anne photography

I met Jordyn and Chad back in April for their maternity photo session and we had so much fun!  The weather was great and they did amazing!

I asked if they were secretly models or something, because they seriously nailed their session.  The love between them was so apparent and beautiful.

 

Fast forward to June 5, 2019 and their sweet little guy was born weighing just under 6 pounds.

I got to meet baby Brooks a week later and what a doll he is!

Just look at that perfect head of hair!

So cute!

Just imagine how cool it will be for baby to see what his parents looked like when he was born and see the love they had for him from the beginning!

I love incorporating items that are special into each session.

It can be something special to the parents, or something that was passed down or made special for baby.

I even have clients that want to do themes such as Harry Potter, sports or their career.

It is best to schedule your maternity & newborn sessions in advance.  I recommend booking your maternity session between 32-36 weeks and newborn sessions are best done between 5-14 days.  I typically book about 2-3 months in advance, so booking your maternity session at the beginning of your second trimester is recommended to ensure space on my schedule.  I only take a limited number of maternity and newborn sessions per month to give me room on my calendar to move around if needed.

Also, booking your maternity and newborn sessions together gets you $100 off the session and digitals from both sessions for the price of one.

Southeast Michigan Newborn Photographer | Baby Jay | Melissa Anne Photography

SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

 

Baby Jay was the 10th baby of 2019 and the 6th boy!

He completely stole my heart!  He was so sweet and sleepy.

He slept so good and only woke up at the very end of the session.

I just LOVE his pouty lips!

Dad kept singing the baby shark song with Baby Jay instead of Baby Shark, and the whole entire time I was editing I was singing “baby Jay do do do doo doo do”!

Michigan Newborn Photographer | Baby Ellie

Beautiful Baby Elli Rose was in the studio last week and she was SO good to us!  She slept most of the session and we got to do so many different setups and poses with her!  She also smiled a ton!

Mom wanted soft pinks, creams and neutrals and she looked so sweet in pink!

Ellie was the 12th baby of 2019 and the 5th girl!

We had such a stretch of baby boys, I was so excited to get out all the headbands and girly stuff!
