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!
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:
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.
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!
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.
