Wrapped Mini Newborn Session!

Wrapped newborn mini sessions are such a great way to get some sweet family and/or baby photos without the expense or time commitment of a full session! Mini newborn sessions are one hour and always in studio. You can see the pricing options for mini sessions here.

During a mini session baby is never naked or clothed in an outfit (these can be difficult and may take so much time that we only get one or two poses so I reserve those for full sessions). I generally swaddle baby in a neutral color or a swaddle that matches their skin tone and then it’s easy to switch out a second swaddle on top so we can move quickly through the setups and get the most variety possible.

There’s a baby only option, but they opted to do family as well! Look how beautiful!!  posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, white on white, dad and baby, family newborn, mom and baby posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, black and white, mom and baby posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, white on white, mom and baby posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, black and white, mom and baby posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, dad and baby

Mini sessions generally include 3-6 setups, depending on how well the baby does! We did family, mom/baby, dad/baby, plus one prop and 2 blanket backdrops. Getting different angles (above) can give you a different look and changing out the swaddle (like below) is easy to do to get a little more variety. posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, blue and white posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, blue and white

Ezra’s Newborn Session

Lucky parents, lucky boy!! This wonderful couple hadn’t even started the adoption process, but when this boy was 1.5 weeks old they found out about him through a mutual friend and met with the birth parents. He was born at 33 weeks so he was still in the NICU, but they immediately fell in love and agreed with no hesitation. Overnight, they were parents.

So much love and happiness in this little family unit. I wish them nothing but the best during their journey!!!
