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!

Baby {Teddy} | Katy, TX Lifestyle Newborn Family Photographer

Alright. The busy season is officially OVER and I know longer have an excuse to procrastinate!!! I promise promise PROMISE I’m going to try harder to stay on top of blogging this year. It is my one and only goal. I joked about the realest Christmas miracle being that anyone chooses to hire me with my lack of updates anywhere! But like, seriously! I’ve had this session ready to blog for at least 4 months, and that’s kind of embarrassing…does anyone else struggle to find balance among juggling family, friends, life activities, and work? Just me? Anyway, I truly appreciate all of my clients from the bottom of my heart, especially for seeing my website and trusting me on that alone to capture your precious memories. It means everything to me. I love being able to do this for all of you <3

Anyway, this family was yet another amazing family. The dad was so friendly and they were all so hospitable. I loved every moment with them. Their new son was precious of course as well, and a perfect little sleeper to boot! A seriously beautiful family. I hope you’re doing well these days, baby Teddy! Check out his newborn session below:

Baby {Amber} | Katy, TX Family Photographer

You guys, this session was so incredibly special to me. I never in a million years though ANY of my cousins would ever have children. Honestly, in our families, the burden of children mostly rests on my husband and I, which we're fine with. We both came from pretty small families ourselves, and growing up I always knew my kids would never have many, if any, cousins. It just is what it is. Yet somehow, the day FINALLY came and one of my cousins decided to take the leap!! And I'm so, so excited for the memories our kids will get to make together. Little Amber is just under a year apart from our Sabrina. I'm so glad my kids will have someone to play with at the holidays now, which speaking of, this is also so heartbreaking at the same time because my aunt (his mom) just passed away this Christmas. She never got to see the grandchild she was always begging for. It was a bittersweet Christmas this year for sure, but seeing this sweet baby brings only joy. I can't wait to watch her grow! Welcome to the wild side, Amber!

Baby {Zakariya} | Katy Houston TX Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

This family is another dear to my heart. They are close friends of ours who recently moved to New York City for Samad's job. Zara is from Dallas and when they announced that they were expecting, we were ecstatic! She mentioned she'd be giving birth in Dallas and staying there a while before heading back to NYC. While they were in Dallas, they came to visit some family here in Houston and we were so happy they made some time to come out and see us as well! I was even more honored when she wanted me to do newborn photos for them. I did these in my new, in-home studio! I still have some work to do on it to get it up and running, but I'm super excited to eventually offer studio sessions in the coming new year! I'll also be posting a few model calls as well once my studio is actually ready to go, so be on the lookout for that if you're interested in trading some time for photos! Anyway, back to baby Zakariya, he couldn't be more precious, and I think you can really feel the deep love his parents already have for him through these photos. Welcome to the world, Zak! You're in for an exciting ride.
