What a difference a few months makes!!

I had the pleasure of re-visiting one of my precious newborn clients recently and was floored when I was met by a crawling little man. You are not supposed to be crawling yet, sweet boy! Look out, mom and dad, this one is going to be a mover and shaker for sure!

And to highlight how behind I am on my blogging, I haven’t posted his sweet newborn session yet or his beautiful mammas maternity photos. I just love looking back at all these and seeing the loving anticipation as they looked forward to becoming a family of three and the love, joy and awe that each parent feels during those first days after their baby’s debut. O’s, your love for each other and your sweet baby boy is palatable and certainly becomes you. Thank you for trusting me to capture these special milestones for you — what an honor.

And doesn’t this mamma have the greatest sense of color and style?!? If I ever redecorate, I want her help! :)

And then they were four . . .

What a beautiful thing it is when a family welcomes their newest member. Those first few days and weeks are just so precious. Time seems to stands still as acquaintances are made, newness is marveled and snuggles are savored. And while the first time around is unique and special in its own right, the second time around is even sweeter. For you realize, I think, how fleeting that newness is. How quickly those tiny toes grow, that sweet milky baby breath fades and that complete and utter dependence changes. I am truly honored to be asked to capture those first days for new families, each and every time. Thank you Gs for trusting me to capture your family as it grew to a family of four. Your new little man is just perfect in every single way.

a mother’s love

A mother’s love is special. I’ve always known this…everyone does. But it wasn’t until I became a mother myself and held my first child in my arms for the first time that I truly understood what that meant. I began to love in a way that I never had before. I loved that tiny little person so completely, so differently. And I think becoming a mother helped me to love others in my life better too. I loved my husband in a deeper way now that we were officially a family, and I gained an appreciation for all that my own parents had done for me and why.

A mother’s love is special. I love it that we documented that for this beautiful mamma and her two little ones, and it makes me realize how badly I need a photo session of my own!

Irish triplets?

I’m not even sure if there is such a term, but if there is, this sweet family would certainly be close to qualifying! They welcomed their set of boy/girl twins just slightly over a year after their second child was born. Yes, you did the math right, three babies under the age of 13 months…whew! But they didn’t focus on all the diapers, bottles, routines. They were so excited to be a family of six, and I was touched by their incredible story and strong faith. Their joy was real, and they were authentically thankful.

Being with this family on this day was such a great reminder to me. A reminder to not let the mundane details of daily life get in the way of being truly grateful for my blessings. Thank you, D family, for not only inviting me into your home but for sharing your story and hearts with me!

Family Snuggles

Nothing better than a little Sunday afternoon snuggle time with your newest little one. So glad we captured these sweet moments for you, M family. And this is just the beginning — can’t wait to show them all to you!

pure angels

So I must admit that I was a wee bit nervous about my first set of newborn twins. Newborn sessions under the best of circumstances can take quite a bit of time and patience, and I really had no idea what to expect with two! And these two cuties did give us a run for our money at first. They were quite alert, not interested at all in sleeping for me. But as soon as we put them together, they were completely at ease. It was as if they were back where they belonged, together. What precious little angels.

I . Love . Newborns.

Newborns are among my very favorite to photograph, and this sweet little guy was no exception. His mom responded to my Dallas Newborn Model Search (there are two spots left!), and I am so glad that she did. I had such a great time getting to know you J Family and discovering our random connections — it’s such a small world, isn’t it?!? And it goes without saying that your new little man couldn’t be any sweeter or cuter! Congratulations on his arrival!

And just look at how sweet his big sister is with him. I think he was most content in her arms, and I can understand why. She was incredibly gentle and patient with him. What a fantastic big sister you have Baby O. You two will be great friends, I’m sure.
