Baby {Pace} | Katy Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

Oh man, what to say about this sweet family? For one, I appreciate their flexibility and understanding when I wasn’t feeling well the day before their session. If I’m feeling unwell, I ALWAYS let my newborn clients know immediately so that we can make accommodations so as to not get the baby sick. We wound up doing this session the morning of Christmas eve since that’s what they had available for a reschedule, and I made it work! It was lovely to fit in one last session before the new year, and I can’t imagine a better family to have spent it with. Mom and Dad were so sweet and hospitable and I LOVED how many ideas dad wanted to personalize his FIRST son’s session with! It was so heartwarming to see. Mom had prepped me beforehand with some sample images of some posing she wanted so that I could bring matching items. Dad loves to hunt, so we incorporated antlers from his personal collection. Dad also played baseball which we incorporated as well. I absolutely love doing creative sessions and I love collaborating with my families to bring their visions to life! This in-home session took a little longer than usual because of the heavier posing I don’t typically do, but boy was it worth it!! That’s why I don’t put time limits on my newborn sessions- getting the right shots is the most important to me!

I also HAD to ask if mom was an interior designer, since their house looked straight out of a magazine! She isn’t, though she is clearly incredibly talented in that area. They had a beautiful wooden bench I was able to turn on it’s side and use as a backdrop for some of the baseball shots. The glove in those shots is an heirloom as well. Baby Pace is so treasured and I’m sure he has a very lucrative sporting career ahead! And look at those adoring sisters…oh my goodness he’s going to be spoiled! Congratulations, you guys! Thank you again for not only letting me be a part of this special time in your life, but your Christmas holiday as well!

Baby {Morgan} | Katy, TX Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

Another extremely-late-to-be-blogged session, but a great one none the less. Sweet Morgan was adorable, and although she was a month old, she slept like a newborn! Her parent’s first treasure. We incorporated some of their own outfits for her that they had and loved, which is something I enjoy in lifestyle sessions - the unique touch that comes with using your own items!

Cannizzaro Family | Katy Family Photographer

Words can’t describe what this sweet family means to me!! Over the years, we have grown so close and I am so lucky to have their mom as one of my best friends - and the same for our husbands! It’s one of the biggest blessings when you can become such good friends with people who are in the same season of life as you, whom you can both commiserate with AND share your joys with! So when she asked me to be their photographer, I was of course delighted. I thought it would also help that her youngest ADORES me, but sadly, he wasn’t having any of my charms this day (as evidenced by the last photo! I’m a sucker for the outtakes of crying babies). Sadly it was one of my colder sessions from this season, but we made it work.

Baby {Sadie} | Katy Family Photographer

Another session I'm SUPER late to blogging, but that's new there? Summer has been a busy, busy time around here trying to keep my own kiddos entertained each day, while also maintaining the lawn, and the house...life is never ending! Nonetheless, this Katy family photographer keeps on chugging on through it all, because I love being able to capture these precious, nuanced moments that you can't get back once gone. I lament often that I can't capture my own moments for myself and my own children. Well, I CAN, it's just much harder to do it myself. I'm so glad though, for every chance that I get to do it for others!

This family was so so SWEET. I enjoyed every moment with them, and hopefully sweet little Sadie is letting her parents get a little more sleep these days. Her little brother Liam was full of personality, and even though it was Sadie's moment in the spotlight, I was very glad I got some photos of momma reading with her oldest child, since I know firsthand the struggle that comes for little ones with learning to share mommy! Seriously though, there were so many fantastic shots from this session, it was incredibly hard to narrow down. Check out more of the wonderful family below.

I love using items unique to each of my families in their newborn sessions! It makes the photos so much more personal.
