charlotte newborn lifestyle photographer | welcome baby boy C | staci noel photography by Staci Noel

At this point in my life as a newborn photographer I have clients that have spent years with me and are more than just clients; they are friends and I can't wait until I get to see them again for milestones and occasions. This family is one of those and when they told me last fall that they were expecting again I was thrilled that they asked me to capture their baby boy's first images for them!

We did a part lifestyle/part studio session and I'm just so in love with all of the gorgeous images and wonderful emotions we captured during our time together.

Congratulations to mom, dad and big sister - I'm over the moon for you guys and am once again so honored that you invited me into your home to meet your sweet baby boy!

Sweet Ethan | Charlotte NC Newborn Photographer Staci Noel Photography by Staci Noel

I knew when I met this wonderful Charlotte couple for their maternity session that this little boy was going to be so adored and loved beyond measure! They were so excited to meet him and frankly, so was I!

Mom, who is an amazing artist in her own right, was very specific about what she wanted from our newborn session together. Definitely monochromatic and more neutral, soft tones and some textured and natural looking images. Having an absolutely gorgeous newborn model was icing on the cake so to speak:) Ethan gave us a little bit of work but for the second half of his session he slept like a dream and we created some amazing art together.

Here are some of my favorites from his session at my Harrisburg studio.
