Newborn Baby Girl Photo Session | OKC Newborn Photographer

A Newborn Baby Girl to Love and Adore

I was so excited when Tori contacted me to do her baby’s first photos. It had been a while since I’d had a newborn baby girl in the studio, so I was super excited! We discussed what she was looking for during her session, and she told me she loved all things floral, girly and vintage. She also requested that we incorporate my super popular macrame swing somehow. Immediately I saw the session coming together in my mind and I couldn’t wait to put it together.

We started with their first family portrait as a family of five. Baby Kingsley is such a loved little girl with two big sisters, and their love for their newborn sister shows in the photos. We decided on a neutral, taupe backdrop for mom and dad to stand in front of while holding baby Kingsley. Big sisters Hayden and Sophia proudly stand in the middle, lovingly protecting their new baby sister.

After a few poses with the whole family, we decided to get some of just mom and dad with Kingsley. As the last baby, she holds a special place in her parents hearts. I adore this shot of mom Tori and dad Jared looking lovingly down on their newborn baby girl with the backlighting behind them. This style just screams “timeless” to me.

Including Big Siblings in Your Newborn Photos

Of course we had to get photos of big sisters with baby Kingsley. Hayden and Sophia were more than excited to hold her! We started with the girls laying tummy down on my cream fur rug with the same taupe backdrop as before. Baby Kingsley laid between them, facing the camera and creating the trio’s very first sister picture. We also decided to have the girls lay on their backs and place Kingsley between them, giving their gallery some added variety.

Then of course each sister got their own photo with their new sister. It was beautiful to hear them talking to her, singing to her and loving on her. I may have gotten a tear in my eye!

Dainty, Girly Newborn Photos for a Sweet Baby Girl

Once we were all done with the family and sibling poses, we moved on to miss Kingsley’s newborn portraits by herself. Since she was sleeping peacefully in her swaddle, I decided to wrap her in a potato swaddle for her first set. It’s important to note that this pose should only be done with the help of an assistant. My assistant’s hands were on Kingsley at all times, and Photoshop was used to edit her hands out of the final image.

Using Personal Items as Props in Your Newborn Photos

Because her dad is a law enforcement officer, her parents wanted to incorporate dad’s duty belt and other items from his job. I love it when parents bring in personal items to use in their session – it just makes the photos that much more special!

For this set of photos, Kingsley was posed in my everlasting bucket from Hello Little Props with her chin on her hands. Her white lace romper contrasts the dark blues and blacks of the set.

Please note: newborn safety is my utmost priority. Dad’s duty weapon had been removed and was not included in this session.

Pretty in Purple

Mom Tori’s biggest request for her newborn session was that we incorporate this tiny newborn bed in one of our sets. What mamas want, mamas get at Photos by Ashleigh, so we made it happen! We added in some sprigs of lavender and greenery for an extra pop of detail. I absolutely adore the little bonnet, Kinglsey’s sweet little toes peeking out and her tiny hands wrapped around the felt heart. She looks like a sweet porcelain doll, and these were easily some of mom’s favorites too!

    As I was scrolling through your incredibly precious images, I was thinking to myself “Oh my heart”, and what is in the last image? Little Kingsley’s photos are perfect, and the images with Daddy’s hat? Soo good. What a treasure you’ve created for Kingsley and her family.
