Music Themed Newborn Session: Elliott


Cape Girardeau Newborn Photography

When Whitney contact me about her son's newborn photos earlier this year, I knew that I had to incorporate music into his session. Baby Elliott's mom & dad are the worship pastors and leaders at our church and there's no doubt that their children will be just as gifted musically as they are. When I found the miniature guitar, I grabbed it immediately. It was perfect for Elliott's portraits!

We started Elliott's session with him wrapped in one of the studio's many soft, luxurious knit wraps for family portraits. Whitney chose one of my favorite dresses from the Client Closet and it paired perfectly with her signature hat. The family portraits are my favorite part of every newborn session. It's such a joy to get a newly expanded family in front of my lens and to capture some of their first days with their new baby.

After the family portraits were completed, I changed Elliott's wrap out and we did some sweet solo portraits in my baskets and bowls. I knew from Whitney's session questionnaire that their home decor is very neutral with pops of greenery, so I made sure to curate sets that would look perfect on their walls, no matter what room they choose to display their portraits in.

We ended sweet little Elliott's session on the beanbag with a beautiful dusty blue background. My favorite portrait from his session is the first one with him wrapped up like a cocoon! We swapped out his grey wrap for a white one and a sleeping cap from the newborn closet and, of course, I had to incorporate the mini guitar one last time. I love capturing the details of each baby's tiny features in my sessions -- such as their delicate eyelashes as they snooze, or their little bitty newborn toes as they're swaddled so snuggly.


I hope this blog gives you a good idea of what to expect from your newborn session! I love to customize each session to YOU, so that you truly love the artwork that we create together. Please head back to the main website if you're ready to book your session now!
