I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Here in Houston, it was only around 100 degrees and we had some much needed rain, so that’s always a plus. I also took one day off work and spent some time at the pool with my kiddos, Emma and Lucy. Now that it’s Monday, I am excited to be behind my desk and catching up on the blog. After all, blogging your sessions is a joy as I look forward to sharing my favorite images and the process behind them.
My latest home lifestyle session took place in gorgeous Cypress, Texas with one of my favorite families I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. From their initial e-mail to the phone consultation, I truly looked forward to meeting them. They are sweet as apple pie and so warm and welcoming!
Perhaps one reason I love newborn sessions is because of the connections. Meeting your family, seeing the baby nursery, planning all the small details – this makes me happy. I like chatting with you, hearing your stories, and learning about who you are. Since the newborn sessions are about 4-5 hours long, it’s meant to be laid back and stress free.
For this family, we did a combination of posed newborn work and then a more documentary approach to lifestyle family work. As you will see, their nursery is absolutely stunning! Gorgeous colors, perfect styling, fantastic light. There is an eclectic mixture of both old and new: vintage meets modern. Mom designed it all – she has quite an eye! The following are some of my favorite images from our time together. Thank you for having me in your home! I cannot express how much I enjoyed documenting your session and I’m already looking forward to seeing your sweet baby again at 6 months.
As you can see, we began with images of Dad embracing his role as a loving father. While I do like to give a little direction, I prefer to hang out and just observe. To me, that's the key to capturing a true moment that's frame worthy: these aren't meant to be snap shots. They're meant to be archival art pieces you will lovingly adorn your walls with as the years pass.
