Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Casey!

We have a new little one to welcome to the blog. Everyone, meet Casey!

This little guy was brought into my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon around the middle of last month by his mom, Kristina. She wanted to do a full newborn photography session, which usually includes some pictures of baby with mom and dad, but Kristina decided to bypass the family photos and do exclusively baby pictures, so I focused completely on Casey—which I didn’t mind a bit! 

Casey is such an adorable baby. He has loads of beautiful dark hair, which I love, and I also love how it comes to a perfect point in the middle of his forehead. So darned cute! He also has wonderfully round cheeks, and the cutest little lines under his eyes that make him look extra sleepy. And trust me, he was plenty sleepy! This sweetheart was happy to snooze while I did my thing, and was so cooperative while we changed him in and out of different outfits and arranged his little arms and legs to get the perfect pose for each shot. You’d think he was born to be a photography subject!

We chose very muted, neutral colors for this newborn photography session: lots of browns, grays, and gray-blues, and branched out just a bit with a touch of various shades of green. Because the color scheme is so neutral, the black and white photos blend in to the color photos almost imperceptibly rather than standing out, which gives a different feel to our photo collage (see above.) Casey’s nursery is decorated in a fox theme, which influenced our color scheme and is also why we went with a leafy forest background for the picture below, complete with tree trunk, and dressed Casey up in an orange fox hat. I think the orange looks great with his dark hair.

We continued the forest theme with a cozy brown bear cap, which Casey modeled for us in the picture below. Frankly, I can’t get over how cute he looks in that one! Even though it’s summer, he looks like he’s getting ready for a long winter’s nap…or possibly hibernation!

I had so much fun spending time with Casey and his mom as we did this newborn photography shoot together. I hope I will be able to see them again in the future and help them capture even more wonderful memories as Casey grows. 

Although I’ve been a newborn photographer for several years now, I can tell you that taking pictures of these precious little ones never gets old. A sleeping infant holds a kind of magic that never wears off, no matter how many times I shoot and no matter how many babies come through my photography studio. It’s just the best thing ever! This session was no exception. I had a wonderful time photographing Casey and was able to get some great pictures of him. I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them!
