Newborn sessions with older siblings are so much fun. Usually, they are not quite ready to give up the spotlight, which makes for such great moments. That’s why I love taking a lifestyle approach…because although I LOVE the simple, classic pictures of the sweet newborn, I adore the in between moments that capture life with the family.

I love Morning at Market Street sessions, especially for little ones! The color and light is so beautiful and we have the entire place to ourselves! I was overjoyed to get to work with Sloan again…I saw her for 6 month pics and loved getting to do her 1st Birthday session with her! Her expressions and personality are a magnet to my camera and I just have to warn you….I have lots of pictures to share…because deciding on just a few was too hard!
We decided to do Grace’s 18 month old session at home because Mom knew that’s where everything she loved would be. I was excited because I think in home sessions are the best thing ever….they capture your family in their happy place, everyone is more relaxed…and there is AIR CONDITIONING….because…it’s Houston and summer is upon us.
We even got to do a Life in Motion video, which you can see at the end of this post. I so wish I could go back and see more of my own kiddos in the middle of toddler strutting, peek a boo, and belly rolls out in all of their glory!
Nothing makes time seem like it’s flying more than when I see one of my newborn clients have their first birthday! Did the earth really circle the sun that fast!? It seems like it wasn’t too long ago that we were doing Zoe’s newborn pictures and now here we are celebrating her first birthday!
She was taking it all in for the first part of the session but then she lit up with some of the most gorgeous smiles! And of course, what 1st Birthday session is complete without a cake smash?
Happy Birthday Zoe!
This beautiful family has already become very dear to me. We only met a few months ago when I did their maternity session, but after spending the night in the hospital with them while waiting on and then welcoming Logan, friendship was also born. I was so excited to see them just a couple weeks later for Logan’s newborn session. A newborn session is so much more than documenting tiny toes and perfect details. To me, it’s about telling the story of a family’s love for each other…and freezing moments in time so they can remember those early days that too quickly become a blur.
I can’t believe this beautiful girl is one! It doesn’t seem like it’s been a whole year since we did her newborn session, which has always been one of my favorites.
I was so excited to meet this family because we are going to be working together a LOT this year since they have booked a Watch Me Grow Package!
We had the most gorgeous light for this maternity session. I love incorporating siblings into the maternity sessions because as excited as we are to meet these new little ones, in the here and now, it’s all about them and this sweet stage of life before the newest member of the family arrives!
I’m so looking forward to watching Luke become a big brother next month!
I love when I get to meet the newest little member of a family…often when they are just days old. My babies are not babies anymore, so it’s especially fun to get to snuggle these newborns and play with newly promoted big brother and sisters. I especially love when clients take advantage of my packages and book a maternity session because when their newborn session occurs a few weeks later, I already feel like we’re catching up like old friends…especially in the case of these big brothers and sisters.
Logan’s big brother was so excited to introduce me to him…guiding me as soon as I walked in the door to peek in his bassinet. He then proceeded to help me throughout much of the session, wanting to be right in the mix…which makes it really fun, especially when I get to take some sibling pictures.
