Life is beautiful! I see every session as a celebration of life and the love of a family but most especially, I see it at newborn sessions. It is so beautiful watching a sweet family love on their newest little one. I was able to capture big sister as a newborn so it was such a privilege to be asked back again and I just loved seeing them now as a family of four!! Their brand new daughter was just a dream, too!! Just a few days earthside, but it only takes seconds to steal your heart forever…and it was pretty clear how perfectly she fit into her family. Congrats again, M Family!! Your baby girl is just precious!
There’s something special about stepping into a house with a newborn. When I go to meet a newborn client or even a friend who’s just had a baby, I honestly get butterflies as I walk to the door. It’s that anticipation and quiet excitement before meeting a brand new, precious soul…a new family member to love and cherish! I was so happy for this sweet mama and daddy…their first child…a daughter!!! I was met with proud smiles as they introduced me to their baby girl. She was absolutely beautiful with an amazing head of full dark hair and tiny little features. And oh, how they loved on her!! I could have stayed all day to capture the way they looked at the tiny, new love of their lives. Also, can I say that any family that gives their little one the hashtag #theheiress, is pretty darn cool?! 🙂 Thank you again for welcoming me into your home so I could create these memories for you and meet your little one. Clearly she is meant for big things!
Precious baby. Our sweet daughter.
It still seems surreal to say that out loud. We have a daughter! It’s been three months since we saw this beautiful face for the first time (8 days late, I might add). I was a huge bundle of emotions and swirling thoughts and my mind was filled with the unknowns before she got here, but once she was? Once I heard her cry and they laid her sweet, sticky body on my chest? I was able to breathe. I took it all in and studied her little face and didn’t worry about the things to come. The first few weeks were tough adjusting and we still have crazy days but I have to say, I have love LOVED having her finally here!! She has the most amazing dark blue eyes that are lightening up by the day. Tiny fingers and long feet. Dark wispy hair at the back of her head and soft fuzzies on top. The saddest cry and the happiest wide mouth smile that has affectionately earned her the moniker “birdie” from me. She is filling out and is working on an impressive double chin and cheeks (which you won’t see in these photos since these are from the first month.) It’s amazing how a teeny tiny someone you’ve never met can instantly fill every corner of your heart and fit perfectly into your family. She is obsessed with her daddy, and our sweet boy is paying more attention to her everyday (he loves giving her high-fives. 🙂 ) And when she locks eyes on either one of them, it’s a special kind of beautiful. Those smiles are magic I tell you! These are some of my favorites from 8 days old and then a few weeks later. Just our crazy family. All piled up on the bed. Just how I like them ❤
Oooh, these three!! I was lucky enough to get to capture some of his first few days and I was just as excited to see them again for an outdoor session! It is amazing how fast they change in just a short amount of time! I had to add a few from his newborn session for comparison 🙂 This little guy was such a sweetie and it was great getting to watch his mom and dad love on him again. Thanks again, N Family!
This pretty mama and I went to the same high school so I was so happy that she contacted me for her baby’s newborn photos! I’m slightly biased to families of three girls (being the oldest of three girls myself) so I know without a doubt how much fun these three will have growing, learning, and laughing through life together. I had such a wonderful time with this family! I was greeted warmly when I arrived and I left their home with big hugs from the oldest two…they were the sweetest! And it’s pretty clear how much they all adore their littlest love. Thanks again for sharing your family with me, C family!!
I’ve known this sweet family for years now (since college) and it has been a blessing watching their family grow! I was able to take photos of the three of them last year and I was so honored that they asked me back to capture the first moments with their little man! I loved getting to meet them in their home to catch those real moments. There is something so special about lifestyle newborn sessions and I’m growing to love them more and more! Also, they went to Texas A&M (like me, of course!) and I loved getting to set up their rings and celebrate the excitement for the newest, cutest, fightin’ Texas Aggie! Thanks so much again to the lovely G Family and congratulations on your precious boy!
Home. Such a beautiful place to be. It was wonderful meeting this adorable family of four in their home for their second son’s newborn session. I have a new love, and it’s name is lifestyle. There is something truly special about joining a family in their own space. Their home, their love and joy for their newest addition become the backdrop and set the tone for a laid back session and a beautiful and accurate depiction of life. The focus is on the connection and joy between mom, dad, siblings, and this new little one. A new tiny life. A new beginning together. It is a true blessing to shoot, edit, and hand over these memories that I know a family can cherish forever and look back on to remember this time in their lives. So thank you again for allowing me into your home and congrats again, C Family! Your boys are incredibly precious.
