Behind the Scenes {Newborn Photographer Cypress, TX}

Pin It

I was lucky enough to work with TWO gorgeous baby girls this week, and I loved every minute of them both!

Shooting newborns is amazing! It's an honor to be their chosen photographer. It's a joy to spend time with them and their new parents. It's a blessing to have the opportunity to capture them at their tiniest and most vulnerable.

Yeah, newborn photography ROCKS!

Anyway, Olivia's mommy asked if she could take some pictures of her sweetie's session, and I said, "Absolutely ..... if you'll share them with me!" :) So now here I am, sharing them with you!

{Disclaimer: I have no makeup on, my hair is a mess, and I have baby pee on my shirt. But hey, this is how I usually look on a day-to-day basis, minus the baby pee!}

Introducing Olivia's Sneak Peek with some behind the scene shots:

I spend a lot of time at newborn sessions crouching and soothing.

When Baby gets into a deeper sleep, then I start arranging and perfecting little details. (Oh yeah, that's poop on the blanket. No worries, it happens every time! Everything's washable.)

Still soothing and patiently waiting for that heavy sleep. :)

I'm a smiling fool during these sessions. Their sweet little noises and faces make my heart melt!

New pose. V-E-R-Y slowly, I remove my hands, the blanket, and anything else used to keep her comfy and how I want her. See my look of concentration? ;)

Here's the resulting shot:

Sometimes I recruit help. Here's Olivia's sweet hands-on daddy:

And the shot:

She's nice and sleepy, so now I'm just gently adjusting her ... and waiting ...

I LOVE those lips!

Blocking the light from her eyes, while patting her to sleep and keeping her legs in the right position.

Beautiful blanket Great-Grandma made:

P, thank you so much for taking and sharing these photos with me!

Thank you for allowing me to be the one to capture this incredible time in Olivia's life.

And thank you for making me realize that I really should be wearing makeup to client sessions! ;)

The "P" Family {Cypress TX Family Photographer}

Pin It

I had a great session last night with this family! Little guy Z turned 3 last week and he was just FULL of happy energy! His favorite things to do were dig in the dirt, throw things in the pond, and run. (I've never seen someone look so cute running in cowboy boots.)

Oh yes, he was a total BOY! Loved it!

What To Wear - Part 1 {Cypress TX Family Photographer}

The biggest question I get asked is, "What should we wear to our family session?" So many moms have told me they put off having their family portraits done for two main reasons:

{1} they're worried about how their kids will behave. (Well, that's a discussion for another post, but rest assured, your kids will be fine because I understand how to let them be silly, adorable, precious KIDS!)


{2} they're daunted by the task of finding coordinating outfits for everyone in their family.

So, I'm introducing a new segment that will hopefully give you some inspiration as you head out on your shopping adventures.

This one was actually created for spring, but I think it's perfect for our warm Houston fall. I love the colors and the complimentary textures and patterns.

Happy shopping!

Pin It

It's been almost a full year since I last worked with this family, and back then precious little A was just a newborn. Now she's a happy, gorgeous 1-year-old! I love, love, love it when clients return to visit and I get to see how their families grow and change. Thanks for a fabulous evening, C Fam!
