One Year Baby Milestone Session
One of The Cutest Kids Ever! I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful, spunky, expressive, smiley little girl to mark her one year birthday celebration. The session took place in my studio, where I have a full inventory of baby props, including miniature benches, chairs and vintage bowls and tubs. Her mama brought two adorable outfits and we used one outfit from my baby collection. I love all the images, but one of my favorites is her in the washer tub - it slowed her down for about three seconds. Here are a few of my favorite images from her one year baby milestone session. A big thank you to my lovely client for having me photograph her precious daughter again. I can’t wait for the next time!
A lovely one year birthday photography session with a lovely family. I have so much fun photographing babies and catching them as they hit all the milestones of the first year: smiling, tummy time, sitting, crawling, walking, and of course turning ONE! This little boy is adorable, and we captured so many sweet moments between him and his parents during our outdoor photography session. I love the photograph of his daddy enveloping him in a hug after he had walked to him, and all the images of him and his beautiful mommy are simply precious. What a beautiful family!
I loved photographing Beautiful Baby M and her lovely family for her studio newborn photography session. It was extra special to have her wonderful grandmother included in the Newborn Session. We did a gorgeous set against a black backdrop with baby held in the hands of her parents. Look at how stunning her skin and tiny little features look against the black. They look equally beautiful against the white! The best part of the session was capturing the sweetness between mommy, daddy, grandmother, and baby. One of my favorite newborn sessions to date!
Family of Three
This beautiful baby girl (Baby Girl E) joined me in my studio with her lovely parents for her newborn photography session. Like all my babies of 2018, she was a doll! I love the rose newborn props her parents selected. The parent and baby images captured against the charcoal gray backdrop came out beautifully. Some of my favorite images are always of parents looking at their new baby, or the emotions that move across their faces as they snuggle together. Here, I saw so much love, wonder and joy, it made me happy. It was an honor to work with this wonderful new family of three.
I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet baby and his lovely parents for his newborn session! His daddy is a Dallas Cowboys' fan so we had to use some Dallas Cowboy newborn props. We also used his father's wedding turban in the shoot which was really neat. I am in love with photographing babies against a grey background, and loved how those photos turned out, particularly the images of baby sleeping sweetly on his hands.
I had this beautiful baby girl in my studio for her newborn session. We used a color palette of pale pink and creamy whites, which came out beautifully. She was a doll through the entire photography session.
One of the sweetest parts of the session was when her big brother joined us to take special sibling photographs. He was great! Perfectly behaved and what a good listener (with 3 pre-schoolers of my own, I definitely appreciate a good listener). :) He gave me great smiles, and snuggled in to his baby sister, allowing me to capture some beautiful images of sister and brother together. I love how the galley came out!
This was a special newborn session, as this beautiful baby boy had both his mother and grandmother present, and we were able to capture some lovely images of both of them during his newborn session. This little boy's name is a Norse God, and the first series of photographs seemed quite fitting, as it looks like he is floating on a cloud. Perhaps a baby sky god? I loved the sweetness, joy, laughter, and love captured in these images.
8 Month Baby Milestone Photography Session
I have been having so much fun lately with my baby milestone sessions. It's always such a treat to work with babies I first photographed as newborns, and to see how much they have changed. I had the honor of photographing this baby girl when she was in her mama's tummy, for her newborn session, and now for her 8 month baby milestone session.
I loved how this gallery turned out! This adorable munchkin’s mama and I had fun styling this sitter session super girly with a tutu, delicate tie backs, lace, and beautiful Indian outfits. She gave us wonderful smiles and expressions throughout her photography session. I think she had fun too. How gorgeous are her eyes?!
Children At Play - Outdoor Session
This brother and sister were so sweet with one another it made me smile throughout their photography session. I had the honor of photographing them for Autism Awareness Month. The little brother lit up once we started finding rocks he could throw into the water. His big sister stayed at his side helping him find rocks, encouraging him, smiling at him, and leaning in for hugs. What a beautiful sibling bond, and what a lovely family.
We held this outdoor photography session in the early morning, and the light was warm and gorgeous. I love the water in the background and the crisp shadows. It was so much fun, and a work out!, capturing these children at play, in their element, just being kids enjoying a lovely Texas morning.
3 Weeks New!
I typically recommend to clients that newborn sessions take place within the first two weeks after birth, but also happily photograph older babies. This adorable baby boy was three weeks new for his newborn session. He slept for the first part of his session, snuggled in the potato sake pose, and then woke up just in time to give us some wonderful awake expressions. I love his beautiful eyes!
I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful baby girl for her Newborn Photography Session and her lovely parents. She was a little doll and slept nearly her entire session in my studio, letting us play with a number of different set-ups. I have so many favorite images, it's hard to choose! I especially love the photograph of her draped in lace and the bum-up pose with the delicate pearl headband. I also loved how the parent images came out, and the capture of her and her beautiful mother. Enjoy!
One-Year Baby Milestone Photography Session
Returning to clients to document their beautiful families growing is one of the best parts of being a photographer. I first photographed this little guy at his newborn photography session. A year later, I had the honor of photographing him and his family during his one year baby milestone photography session! We held the photography session in his family's backyard, and captured so many sweet glimpses into this family's life. There was playing with sister, blowing bubbles (and trying to eat them), saying "ball," joyously practicing walking while holding his parents' hands, and lots of snuggles and giggles. Happy one year birthday Baby M!
10-Month Baby Milestone Session
I love Baby Milestone Photography Sessions! I especially love returning clients because I get to capture images of their beautiful babies growing over time. (Check out my "Grow With Me" Packages). I first met this handsome fellow at his 5-month Baby Milestone Photography Session, and then had the honor of photographing him here at his 10-month Baby Milestone Session. I had a wonderful time seeing his family again and photographing this little guy. He was a sweetheart and gave us huge smiles, particularly when we let him play with some wooden blocks. As a special treat, we were able to capture some lovely images of him with his grandmother - something I think everyone should do!
Studio Newborn Session - Two Week Old Baby
I loved everything about this newborn session! The baby was a perfect doll and slept the entire photography session (I have been on a roll in 2018 with soundly sleeping babies!). The parents were the sweetest and an absolute joy to work with. I also loved the colors, mixtures of grey, pinks, and whites. It is always hard to choose my favorite images from newborn session galleries, but here are a few of the ones I loved. Look how radiant this beautiful mommy is!
I first met these lovely clients when I did their maternity photography session. A short time later, their beautiful baby boy arrived, and I got to work with them again for his newborn session. I held the newborn session in my studio, and like every baby of 2018 (so far!) he slept the entire session. I am on a sleeping newborn streak! Some of my favorite images from the newborn session are of baby in the box, as well as the family images. I used a natural flokati that I recently purchased from Rugs USA, and loved it!
2 Week Old Infant
This beautiful baby girl slept her entire newborn session. Good baby! I held the session in my studio in Northwest Hills, Austin. Her equally beautiful mommy brought a few hair ties to incorporate in the session. I love when clients bring items of special meaning such as heirloom items, or simply sweet items they treasure for their baby. The baby blue hair tie was my favorite. I love baby girls in blue! But as you can see, she's equally precious in pink and cream. Baby girl could not have looked more adorable than she did cradled in her daddy's arms.
In-Home Newborn Session
I recently photographed this beautiful baby boy for his newborn session. The newborn session was an in-home newborn session in my clients' home. My clients and their beautiful new baby were all incredibly sweet, and the such a pleasure to photograph. I loved so many of the images from this in-home newborn photography session. Here are a few of my favorite photos of this beautiful baby boy, and his lovely parents:
Expecting/ Pregnancy Photos - Lakeside
Maternity sessions make me happy! They are all about capturing love and closeness between couples and the beauty of pregnancy. This expectant mother was absolutely radiant at her maternity session. She and her husband were so loving and adorable together. It was a joy to photograph them. Here are a few images I love from their maternity session:
Studio Newborn Session / Two Weeks
I had the sweetest couple and their new baby girl in my studio for a newborn session. In the last few months I have switched to holding all newborn sessions in my studio and I love it! I have different sets ready for clients and clients get a choice of all of the props in my studio. For this little baby girl, we styled her newborn session with pinks and whites, and because her mommy is a hair stylist we did one special fun set-up. Can you guess which one? Here are some of my favorite photos from their studio newborn photography session:
