Newborn Baby Girl, Charlee | Charlotte, North Carolina Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

Charlee came to join her big sister Madison in February of this year.  She rocked her newborn session and I couldn't be happier with the results!  What do you think?  She has a head full of hair and looks so much like her big sister, Madison.  I just can't even handle how sweet Madison is holding her little sister. 

Charlee's neutral grey nursery with pink accents was the perfect backdrop for her family photos. If you know me, you know I'm all about white, ivory, and blush, especially when it comes to newborn photography.  A little grey never hurts either!  

Aiden | In-Home Newborn Session | Charlotte, North Carolina Newborn Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

Aiden wasn't supposed to be one of my preemies that I usually photograph in the NICU.  His mom called me well in advance of her due date, but unfortunately Aiden came a little earlier than expected.  He was born at 34 weeks and did spend some time in the NICU, but today is healthy and at home!

I photographed him in his home and he did so great!  He slept throughout his entire session, and didn't make a peep.  I loved hanging out with his mom during his session too.  She's so easy going and is thankful to have her boy home with her.  Enjoy Aiden's newborn images!

Will | Newborn Session | Charlotte, North Carolina Newborn Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

Jeannie is a sweet friend I met at the hospital - she works in a neighboring unit. When I met with her for her consultation, we hit it off from the start.  I mentioned that l hadn't been floated to work in her unit in quite some time.  In fact, we had never officially met in person until the consultation.  We had never crossed paths at work.  To my surprise, the very next day, I was floated to her unit!  I even gave report to her that night at the end of my shift, transferring the care of my babies to her.  By the end of her shift, she was into labor.  

Will was a few weeks early and spent some time in the NICU for respiratory issues, but was able to make it home in time for his newborn session, which was 2 days before his due date.  

Will's session went great and his parents were so warm and welcoming.  They even offered me some coffee!  I don't always get to drink it because I'm busy working with the babies, but I certainly appreciate the gesture!  I absolutely loved working with this family and their sweet boy!

Newborn Baby Girl, Lula Kate | Charlotte, North Carolina Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

Kayla is another dear friend of mine!  I grew up with Kayla, running around the streets of Wexhurst, sliding down her playroom stairs on a mattress, and bouncing for hours on end on her trampoline.  We have so many memories together from childhood to rooming together at Clemson.  It's amazing that we've been friends for long and it has been fun seeing where life has taken her.

Kayla's first pregnancy was exciting, to say the least!  Miss Lula Kate surprised Kayla a little later in her pregnancy than most moms.  Kayla was more than thrilled to find out she was pregnant, and now she's totally in love with her new little angel baby.   

Speaking of angels, Lula Kate slept like one during her session!  She was alert for some photos too, which I am not mad about.  Alert babies can make for some really cute photos, as long as they're not crying of course. Check out the photos of Lula in the pearl necklace!  I think she looks just precious, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed!

I'm excited to see Lula Kate grow into a little person and watch Kayla and Jim learn the tricks of being parents.  Lula is already loved by so many!
