Cottage Grove Newborn Photographer
Posted: March 17, 2024

Happy Sunday! I just had to share these images from this recent newborn photography session. This baby girl’s mom and dad found me while searching for a Cottage Grove Newborn Photographer in the Twin Cities area.

My work really spoke to them, which is why they made the trek from Cottage Grove to my studio in Brooklyn Park. It’s a bit of a drive, but for them, it was worth it to have beautiful and elegant maternity and newborn photos.

Technically, they were looking for a professional photographer for their maternity and newborn photos. I shared their maternity session on the blog recently, too. Her mama was stunning in two different maternity gowns; one black lacy gown and one red velvet gown. I just loved her maternity session photos!

We ended up doing their whole session in the studio even though Mama wanted to get outside in the snow. But with this crazy snowless winter, we had here in Minnesota this year, that didn’t happen. We didn’t bother even going out since everything was dead and brown and ugly.

For their beautiful baby girl’s newborn photos, they really loved the deep plum purple wraps and newborn flower headbands I offer in the studio. We contrasted this with the cream basket stuffers against a cream flokati rug that provided softness and texture to the image.

They also wanted some images with pinks and whites, so when we moved on to the next series of poses on my posing table we used a light pink backdrop with a mix of pink and white wraps for variety. We also mixed in a few different headbands, bonnets, and a sleepy hat.

I’m all about keeping my images simple and minimalistic so the props don’t distract from the baby. I also keep the color palette simple using just 1-2 colors.

My biggest pet peeve is when I see a newborn image online and all I can see before I even see a baby in the photo is all the props. No, thank you!

When you’re looking for a Cottage Grove Newborn Photographer, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m also happy to drive to you for a Lifestyle Newborn Session in your home. In fact, I have a Lifestyle Newborn Session I did in Cottage Grove last Fall I’ll probably share soon!

Have a great Sunday and enjoy these beautiful newborn baby girl photos!
