Family Newborn Photography Session | Orange County Baby Studio

Family Newborn Photography Session

While we love outdoor and themed family shoots, but there’s nothing quite so timeless and clean, white, and high key. Previously, we’ve done a beach session and a reunion session with this sweet family. When their newborn son arrived, they wanted to try something in our studio. With ideal lighting and temperature, it’s the perfect setting for newborns. If you’re booking a newborn session, consider including the whole family!

We think we got the perfect mix of Mom, Dad, new baby, siblings, and group family shots. Together, they make gorgeous individual portraits, or the perfect collage for a birth announcement (which we design in studio!)

Backgrounds and props

Mom and Dad chose simple black and white clothing to contrast against the simple backdrop, and we found the adorable grey elf beanie for baby from Craft Nikki. Mom found the cute reindeer outfit on Etsy. We found the adorable Hershey’s Kiss beanie at JessSaying. Baby wraps are by MomnPopPhotoProp. If you aren’t sure what to choose for backdrops or clothing, feel free to consult with us before your session. We’ve had lots of experience and can tell you what we’ve found works best, and send you to some of our previous work for inspiration.
