a new baby sister, in-home newborn session in austin tx

A lot of the times, when I'm heading to a session, I've never actually spoken to them in person. We've communicated via email and text, but not face to face or even over the phone. This can be for varying reasons, the most of those being that I am such an introvert that sometimes the thought of speaking on the phone makes my armpits sweat. (just keeping it real! if you are a phone person and would rather do that, it's ok! I'll wear extra deodorant! lol) Anyway, so I get some butterflies when my people are new to me, but 9 times out of 10,  I am made to feel so very welcome and comfortable and I can only hope that I do the same for you. 
I walked in and the big sis of this family had a huge smile on my face in about 3 seconds. I ADORE KIDS, Y'ALL! From outgoing to shy, rambunctious to meek, GIVE THEM ALL TO ME. I absolutely loved meeting this gorgeous family and I love the images we created together to document some of baby sister's first days at home. Have a look! 

capturing the beauty of pregnancy, a maternity session

I happen to think that pregnancy is beautiful. The fact that as women our bodies can create and birth another life is absolutely incredible. Not everyone is a pregnancy unicorn, loving every minute, but I think we can all agree that it is an amazing process. And so when I am hired for a lifestyle maternity session, I do my very best to capture the beauty. There is beauty in the new shape a woman's body takes, in the anticipation, in the love shared between parents. 

With Britt and Steve, there was such an ease about them. They are so clearly in love, and ready to meet their baby boy. I'm excited to meet him, too!

fun at home with a new baby sister {austin lifestyle photographer}

Once again, it's been too long that I've visited this blog space to share my awesome sessions! I really am going to try harder to get more up, more often! With that being said, you've GOT to check this one out. A super fun, in-home session where this family danced and sang and loved their little hearts out to celebrate the arrival of a new baby sister. 

a new sister to love {austin and houston lifestyle newborn photographer}

Some of you may not know that I travel for this amazing work that I am blessed to do. And I've many awesome clients in Houston! So when this gorgeous mama contacted me about a newborn session there, it was a no-brainer. When I walked into their sweet home, I fell in love instantly. Everything was so easy and flowed so naturally. Big sister and I hit it off and she showed me around. One thing I really try to do, is make the siblings feel important. It's a time of adjustment and change, and though I'm there to capture the new baby that has arrived, I also want any siblings to know that I see them and they are an important part of the story. 

girls just wanna have fun {fort worth family photographer}

While in Fort Worth, I also got to visit a gal that I've known and loved since college. And bonus, she has 2 beautiful girls! Again, the weather was grey, but these girls were anything but! So much sunshine inside their home.  Literally from the moment that I got there, until I left, we had FUN. I just love Kristen! And her little ladies are stunningly gorgeous, no surprise. 

She is such a good mama <3

Kristen was seriously so prepared for for fun. She busted out the Blue Bell and sprinkles and they had a little Ice Cream Princess Party. Then we headed outside to play in the drizzle, and to the playroom to wind it down.  So many fun moments were captured and I just loved watching them all interact.
