Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Blake!


Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was quite cold and rainy here in Eugene—we even got hail on Saturday—but I’m holding out hope that spring is just around the corner. It can’t get here too soon for me. While you’re waiting the sun to show its face, I hope you’ll enjoy these photos of Blake. He is sure a cutie pie!

 Blake was already born when his parents scheduled his newborn photography session. This little guy arrived early and had to spend some time in the NICU. As is so often the case with preemies, his mom and dad weren’t sure when they would be able to bring him home. As soon as it sounded like he was getting ready though, they contacted me to see if I had room in my schedule. I’m so glad I was able to fit them in!

As a newborn photographer, my schedule is pretty busy, so I always encourage parents to schedule their session before baby is born, to guarantee a spot. It doesn’t always happen though. There’s a lot to do to get ready for a baby, so I understand that sometimes booking your photography session is something that slips through the cracks. I’ll always do my best to accommodate last-minute bookings, but I just can’t make any promises. In this case, it just so happened that I had an open spot that worked for them, so mom and dad brought their little guy in for photographs toward the middle of November.

Even though Blake was close to typical newborn size by the time I saw him in my Eugene, Oregon photography studio, he was still older than babies usually are for a newborn session. Photographers generally prefer to do newborn baby pictures between seven and fourteen days after birth, because babies are still very sleepy at this time, aren’t as likely to have developed flaky skin, and are super flexible, making it easy to get those curly poses. Blake wasn’t quite as curly as the babies I photograph in those first couple weeks of life, but he was still flexible enough to do all the poses well. He was also a great sleeper!

Blake has the cutest little mouth and nose. I loved capturing his sweet face, and the precious relationship he and his parents have. So glad he is home and thriving!
