I loved getting to meet little Eli and his parents a few weeks ago. Eli is well loved…not only by mom and dad, but his sweet grandma and dog, Riley too! I love getting to incorporate family members into newborn sessions…because it’s not only about this little one, but those who love him more than they ever did imagine.
This photo session was a long time coming. We originally scheduled in back in May, but that was around the time it rained for a month straight. Then we moved it to July, and that was when we realized that our original idea of an outdoor photo session was probably not going to turn out so great in 100 degree heat.
Well there were just too many good ones from this morning session, so I’m sharing quite a few with you!! I know I say it all the time, but I love getting to see my “newborns” grow up! This little guy is almost ready to celebrate his first birthday and I love any chance I get to photograph him and his family. Look at those baby blues!!
Sweet Hannah was such a dream baby.
She wanted to ease into everything by just being in her happy place….right by mom and dad….and that was just fine by me, because those are some of my most favorites shots anyways!
She quickly got worn out with all the snuggles and fell fast asleep, allowing me to focus some shots on this gorgeous little girl.
These guys were such troopers, not only for meeting me bright and EARLY on a Saturday morning in Tomball, but for braving the heat & humidity that comes with a July session.
Everyone was so amazing despite the less than ideal conditions, and we got lots of smiles!
There is probably no more special session for me than this one.
My dearest friend of more than 20 years asked me take newborn pictures of her little girl….and it was all I could do to not just snuggle her the entire time and instead, actually remember to click the shutter on the camera because I wanted to just stare at her beautiful face and talk with Sheila about how excited we were she was actually here!
I’m so excited to introduce you to Meyer….
I often tell my families that newborn sessions with your second child are usually pretty different than your first. It’s not only because you feel a little more at ease, having had this parenting thing kinda down by now (I kid), but also it becomes so much more than just a newborn session. I love capturing those early interactions with your oldest child and their new brother or sister…those first few days as a new family of 4 can be such a blur, but they are so precious and fun watching new bonds form.
One of the best things about being a newborn photographer and a family photographer is I get to see my little ones grow up! They change so much in that first year!! I loved getting to catch up with Henry and his family. We had already rescheduled due to weather one time and then those crazy Memorial Day storms happened and threatened to cancel again….but we ended up with gorgeous sunlight and a perfect morning session
It was only a few months ago that I was going this little one’s newborn session…and now here she is six months later, one of the happiest babies I’ve ever seen. What a joy!!
What a great time we had last week at this in home session! We let the boys be boys and burn off some energy in the backyard, and then came inside for some playtime complete with jam session!
Lots of laughter and smiles in this session
