{Sabrina} 3 Month Milestone | Katy Houston, TX Child Milestone Portrait Photographer

Y'all, I can't even believe it...Our very own sweet little Sabrina turned 3 MONTHS OLD last week. I mean seriously, where does the time go?! I still feel like she was just BORN last week. Someone stop the clock, seriously. Before I know it she's going to be a year old! Olive is still struggling with sharing mommy, so we're still working through that, but otherwise, things have been going super well around here! Sabrina sleeps great at night most of the time, and usually takes a few decent naps throughout the day, so I can't complain. I've been super excited to dive back into shooting as well - it's nice to get out and do something for just me occasionally!

Additionally - spoiler alert - we're moving into a new house in a couple of months where I'm planning on having a STUDIO space!!! I'm really looking forward to offering this new session option to all of you, and so to get some practice in beforehand, I decided to do her pictures in literally the only room of our current house that gets any light at all. You would not even believe the incredibly tiny space within which I shot these! I had to move Cinnamon's big cat tower out of the way, and then put Sabrina right in that spot in front of the window. She did so well though, so I got lots of practice in before she eventually became fussy! Now, onto the pictures...

A little B&A

Though it's a tad early, I took my daughter's 8 month pictures recently. Her personality has really begun to emerge these past couple of months. When we were out running errands the past week, one old woman described her as "spritely," and it struck me, for I believe it to be the more accurate adjective to describe her. She's always happy and energetic; she feels her happiness deep in her core. But she's also reaching that stage finally where she wants everything, gets upset if you don't give it to her, and even more upset if you do and then take it away from her. OH, going out is becoming quite fun...

This dress is my favorite outfit I own for her. It's baby gap, and the detailed embroidery work is stunning to me, along with the deep eggplant color. Even better is the fact I got it secondhand from a wonderful family I met on Craigslist! It was one of many in a large bag of used designer baby clothes I got from these people for an insanely cheap price, many pieces never even worn. It's size 3 months, and at 8 months she still fits into it! She's always been small, which is actually kind of cool because I've gotten much more use out of all of her clothes, as she can wear them for longer.

She's also decided she loves the sound of her voice! She ADORES screeching like a little piglet at the top of her lungs, and that's why I especially enjoy that third picture there, captured mid-screech. It really shows her quirkiness.

And now, as promised, a little before and after from this session:

I so enjoy editing photos! It's amazing what can be done.
