Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Oaklee!

I am extra excited to share the pictures from this newborn photography session. Why? Because this little cutie is my niece! I’ve been looking forward to meeting her for what feels like ages, and doing my sister’s maternity photos only increased the anticipation.

My sister Lindsey, brother-in-law Nainoa, and niece Harbor made the drive down from Washington to my Eugene, Oregon newborn photo studio with the brand new addition to the family towards the middle of May. They stayed the whole weekend so I got to have lots of baby cuddles with Oaklee Rae (same middle name as her auntie—me)! She was absolutely perfect.

Oaklee was born a little early and was a touch jaundiced. Not a problem! Jaundice is common in newborns and actually tends to make them extra sleepy, which is perfect for photos. I barely saw Oaklee’s eyes all weekend! And since jaundice is easy to correct in pictures during the editing process, it really doesn’t influence your finished images at all—as you can see!

I realize that, as the auntie, I may be just a teeny bit biased—but Oaklee really is such a cutie! Come on, am I wrong? She looks so much like her big sister, Harbor, but I think she’s going to have my sister’s fairer skin tone, where Harbor has her daddy’s. I love the sweet images we were able to get of these two gorgeous girls together! Harbor is totally smitten with her baby sister (as are mom and dad) and I don’t blame them. I kissed that little face all weekend and still couldn’t get enough of her! And that floof of hair—irresistible!

Lindsey and Nainoa like to keep gender a surprise, so when we were talking about setup options for our newborn photo shoot we didn’t know if we’d be welcoming a boy or a girl. My sister loves sage though and I knew she wanted to tie that into the session. So I prepped ahead of time and got some new sage props to make sure we had some options for either gender. I’m so glad I did because it really photographed beautifully! I hope others will choose it in the future as well. I loved it with the neutral colors—and it pairs perfectly with pink or coral too.
