Pregnancy is a beautiful journey that lasts such a short amount of time in life. I love documenting glowing new mamas embracing their beautiful bump before they transition into their new role as “Mom”. I’m always adding new pieces to the studio wardrobe and love watching these pretty women rock them for their shoot.

A Perfect Model

I recently needed a maternity model in order to help explain lighting and posing to my intern. Brittany was happy to be our subject and model some new additions to our studio wardrobe. She looked stunning in everything, and was such a joy to work with. I loved her in the black lace bodysuit, and her favorite was the fluffy grey tulle gown which reminded her of her wedding color pallet and made her feel beautiful. She was so comfortable in her skin, and her confidence really shined in the photos. Brittany is a local style and beauty blogger, so she knows what suits her and stays up on all the trends. I enjoy following her posts which you can personally enjoy here! Brittany looked gorgeous in every outfit she tried on, but her confidence and beautiful maternal glow are what really stood out to me most. I’m so glad I could document this sacred journey of pregnancy for her, and I know she will rock motherhood just as well.

Abby is a honeymoon baby arriving just under a few months before the couple’s first anniversary. This little darling is a souvenier of the couple’s union in marriage and vow to share their love and life together.  Her name means “gives joy”. I can’t think of a more beautiful and precious way to celebrate joy in a family’s life!

I love to capture some photos of the family together snuggling their new little one. This cuddle time is a great way to have the baby relax and fall into a deep sleep for our session.  Mom and Dad were so adorable holding her close and just gazing in awe at their beautiful little gift.

Delicate Details

This little princess has a nursery decorated in pink and gold. Naturally we chose to style her session around this color theme.  Pink hints at femininity and sweetness and gold reminds me of glamour and sparkle. What a fun combination for a little one!  We tucked her up on a wicker and wooden bench, draped with a pale peach fabric and topped her with a little crown!

A delicate white mohair knitted romper and a white pearl headband made for some precious photos to capture the purity and innocence of a new baby.  I love the squishy little wrinkles on her arms and back as she slept so soundly during our session.  And that hair!  Mom shared she and dad had washed it for the first time that morning and it stuck straight up. I think it looks adorable with just the right touch of fun personality for this little girl!

I always love to include heirloom and special pieces into the sessions when possible.  This fresh floral headpiece was made by Abby’s auntie, and it is exactly like the one she had made for mama’s maternity session.  How amazing will these two photographs look displayed together as a symbol not only of the bond between mother and daughter, but also of the love between family.

Congratulations on your new little one, and happy first anniversary!

This couple had the sweetest relationship.  They were a real pleasure to be able to work with as their Houston Maternity Photographer.  The newlyweds are patiently awaiting the arrival of their sweet blessing, baby girl, Abby.

Dad was so excited and supportive.  He was always telling mom how beautiful she was throughout the entire session.  I always love hearing this.  The end of pregnancy is not usually the point in time that most moms to be feel beautiful and having encouragement from your husband is helpful.  Mom really was stunning in her session.  The natural light and flowing whites of the curtains and her dress have such a peaceful beauty to them and looked stunning with her dark hair and flower crown that her sister in law made.  

I love that she chose to do some images with the rich red color as well.  She was so natural and at ease during her session.  If she is not feeling beautiful and powerful at the end of her pregnancy, it was not showing during her session.  She was embracing her belly and the life that was growing inside of her.  She emitted confidence and pride for this chapter of life that she is walking through.  It was a beautiful session and I enjoyed being a part of it with this beautiful mom and dad to be.

The wonderment of a child is unmatched by just about anything else. Their sweet nature, endless curiosity, and inherent innocence make even the simplest things fascinating. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could all see the world through the eyes of a child?

I last saw Audrey when she was a tiny little newborn. I love when I am blessed with the opportunity to see my clients grow! From a sweet and sleepy newborn, to an eager and busy toddler, Audrey was a lot of fun to photograph for her first birthday session. She’s so full of expression that we certainly weren’t short on laughter during the shoot. She was thrilled to ride the rocking horse, dive into her beautiful unicorn cake, and clap her hands with excitement at every turn.

A Sweet Treat

She posed perfectly for her portraits, and looked like she came straight from a Baby Gap casting call. How adorable are her features?! People pay for lashes like that! Each of these sessions include classic portraits as well as a custom styled cake smash. I had a lot of glue gun burns making those clouds but it was totally worth it. Seeing the awe and amazement in the eyes of my tiniest clients, while getting to document their milestones is truly an honor.

Elia is part of my Baby Steps package which allows families to return several times during their baby’s first year to document the remarkable changes as they transition from tiny newborn to active toddler. I just love watching these little ones grow, as it reminds me of my own children being so little.  What a bittersweet reminder of how quickly they become big kids!

Baby Elia was so was so perfect for her session…super squishy, smiley, and adorable as ever!  She was alert and her big expressive brown eyes were watching my every move with the camera.  I am sure her parents are in awe of her curiosity as she explores new things in her surroundings.  And this little one couldn’t stop giving us that big toothless smile of hers!  

Sweet Silly Smiles

The soft muted pink wrap and headband were the only accessories we used for the portraits which featured her pearl necklace and bracelet set.  We really wanted to highlight the jewelry as these pieces were a special gift when she was born and now she’s big enough to wear it. What a special memory for both the family and the gift-giver to have these photos as a reminder of this little one’s purity and innocence.

The family had asked we capture some special images which would be the perfect addition to their vacation cabin.  We chose to feature little Elia on a rustic wooden background with the sweetest little knitted bear bonnet, and then print them up in black and white for an extra rustic quality.  

I can’t wait to see Elia and her family at her next session!
