Michelle Stoker favorite newborn products

My sweet baby Claire will be four months in just a few days. I feel like she was just born but also like she’s always been part of our family. I’m so glad she’s ours! Now that she’s out of the newborn stage and I’ve had some time to reflect on the past few months, I wanted to share a list of my favorite newborn products. I hope this list is helpful for new parents as you make your baby registry and finish setting up your nursery. I remember how overwhelmed I felt while researching ALL the baby items. There is so. much. stuff. out there marketed towards new parents. My best advice would be to remember that your baby needs just a few basics, everything else is just extra. Although the extra stuff definitely helps. 🙂 Here’s a list of my favorite newborn products that I would definitely recommend to any new parent.

Welcome to the world, baby Shlok! I photographed this beautiful mama’s maternity session while Shlok was still growing in her belly. They chose to do their maternity session right in their backyard around sunset. The pretty light and a blossoming tree was the perfect backdrop! I met them again a little later for their in-home, lifestyle family newborn session and it was such a great time. Their two boys are adorable! We got photos of tiny newborn details, big brother playing with Dad, overjoyed grandparents and lots of sweet family time.

Claire’s Newborn Session

Here she is… our beautiful daughter! Little Claire Amelia was born on January 14th and just a week later (on her due date), we got in front of the camera with my talented friend Laura Foote for our in-home newborn session. My goal for the session was “relaxed and cozy” and I think Laura captured that perfectly. It was such a treat to be on the other side of the camera during a newborn session with MY family! My handsome husband, our big boy toddler and our brand new baby girl. It was such a wonderful morning (once James decided to cooperate… our session started with tears and Laura used her magic to bring out his sweetest smiles) and I’m so thankful to have these images as a keepsake of our little girl as a newborn. Thank you so so much for these images, Laura! You are the best!!

Meet baby Peter! Michelle and Sam welcomed their newest little man recently and big brother Nick is elated! Michelle and I met through our local Mom’s Club and it has been so fun to get to know her and Nick over the past two years. And now she’s a mama of two! She is kind, patient, and so smart! I loved their newborn session… the sweet family cuddles, Peter’s southwestern nursery, and the joy of these proud parents.

Enjoy Peter’s newborn session!

Meet the newest addition to the Miller family, baby Jackson! He is absolutely precious and his big sister is his biggest fan. I had the privilege of documenting this beautiful family’s newborn session a few months ago. Their house is a dream! I know Allison (the beautiful mama) through our local Mom’s club and it’s been such a treat to watch her transition from one child to two. She is such a gentle, nurturing woman and I love watching her as mama to her two sweet babes. I’m always encouraged after spending time with her, especially as my own family is preparing to welcome a new baby soon.

Enjoy Jackson’s newborn session!
