Here is a look at beautiful baby Nella’s newborn portraits.
She was 8 days old when she came to visit my home studio located in Citrus Heights, Ca, and I had the most wonderful time with her, her mom, and her grandma. She let me snuggle her, rock her, dress her up, and of course take her picture!
When Nella’s mom chose me to be her Sacramento area newborn photographer we had our initial consultation, and I learned that she was expecting a baby girl and that she loves organic neutral colors, lace, and flower crowns. These are some of my favorite things, so I was very happy to put together a set for this darling baby girl.
Sweet little Nella is an absolute doll baby. Nella took several snack breaks, and her mom says she is nursing like a champ. This little one is happy, healthy, and thriving but she gave her mom a rough time during her delivery. You wouldn’t know it by looking at these newborn portraits since I have already processed them and retouched her skin, but since she was stuck in the birth canal for a bit and took some extra pushes to come out, she ended up with quite a few scratches on her sweet head. I was happy to be able to reassure Nella’s mom that I would have no problem retouching her newborn portraits and erasing those little booboos. Most newborns have splotchy looking skin, rashes, baby acne, etc so this was not an unusual request for me. Nella was as happy as can be when I wrapped her up in blankets and I had fun posing her in some of my baskets from the prop closet. I stuck to the requested neutral color palatte with this set, and used mostly organic shades of cream and brown and also snuck in some pops of color as well and I think this came together just beautifully!
