Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome King!

Hope everyone is continuing to stay well and healthy! After such a rainy weekend, I’m glad to see the sunshine this week and feel like summer is on its way. This newborn photography session took place way back in December (which feels like forever ago—back when the world still felt normal). Enjoy! There’s nothing like a new baby to restore your hope in the world and remind you that everything is going to be okay.

Mom Jayna brought her little cutie King in to see me a week before Christmas. They were headed down to the Rose Bowl because King’s daddy was an Oregon football coach at the time. (He is now with USC.) Not even a month old and already going to football games! There are a few guys in my life who would be pretty jealous of King!

Even though they were on their way to the big game, I’m so glad my Eugene, Oregon photography studio was at the top of their destination list too. King was the cutest little guy and I loved photographing him for them.

In keeping with the football theme, Jayna brought along an Oregon Ducks football helmet for me to pose her little guy in. Doesn’t he look just too cute snoozing away in that helmet? Hard to believe he’ll ever get big enough to wear something like that!

As a Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer, I also keep some Oregon Ducks baby gear at the studio. Since Eugene is home to the University of Oregon, my little green and yellow “jersey” for newborns is a popular outfit choice—complete with a soft, baby-sized football.

King was super sleepy and so easy to photograph. He was also super curly. I love that! Newborns are so incredibly flexible—it’s one of the reasons I encourage parents to bring their little one in to the studio between seven and fourteen days after birth. It’s the combination of sleepy and curly that allows me to get a lot of these adorable newborn poses. (Of course, if your baby is a bit older we can still do a newborn photography session—we just might not be able to get all those poses that newborns do so well.)

For the majority of our pictures we did lots of gray and blue—always great for a baby boy. King is such a handsome little guy and looked great in everything! It was a pleasure to have him and his mom in the studio, and I love the images we were able to capture.
