Belen | Leander Newborn Photographer

A few more from the session that resulted in one of my all time favorite newborn photos….

I still can’t believe we got it, it happened so fast, I really hope they blow it up big!  Belen gave me just a few frames, in the most perfect light, before starting to fuss.  Thankfully, those few frames worked out!  I normally try to photograph newborns in the early part of the day, but she was a rock star on this evening.  We had to work for it but she gave me wonderful little blips of eye contact and sleep just when the light was perfection.  I’m so thankful for her understanding, calm, soothing parents.

I think every new parent needs a photo of their baby crying…you’ll want to remember it someday, I promise!

Thank you S Family, congratulations on your new beautiful daughter, it was wonderful to meet you all!

Miss Belle is also a little bitty thing weighing in at around 5 lbs at birth.  I also photographed her birth but I am still working on proofing those images (halfway done Pam!).  Her parents chose to have me proof her newborn photos first so they could get announcements out but I wanted to take a quick break and come share a few.  LOVED this session.  The color, the moments, everything.  When I arrived I asked if they were friendly with their neighbors because it would be great to use the flowers in their yard as a backdrop.  They thought I meant the beautiful, manicured yard two doors down…nope not me….I was drawn the house across the street that hadn’t been mowed since last year.  HA!  Yeah baby….

Uh, have I ever mentioned how much I adore grandpas?  I LOVE cute little old grandpas.  He was so cute with Belle, a confident hand and just in love with her….I love how they are checking each other out in the first one.

And as I was setting them up for a shot on the front porch, I was testing the light, he was getting ready, and both of them sneezed at the same time.  Such a cute moment!

I can’t wait to see this one on canvas….

And then as I was poking around in the nursery looking for things to incorporate into their session, blankets, etc.  I found THIS!!  It pays to be nosey!  HA!  I thought I had died and gone to photographer heaven right then and there!  I mean seriously?!  An original bright red English Pram?!  And bonus, it belonged to her Daddy when he was a baby overseas.

And last but not least, my fave family shots from this session….

Pam & Chris, congratulations on the birth of Belle, she is so beautiful!  It has been a pleasure to get to know you and I look forward to photographing your family again in 6 months!  Birth photos coming soon, promise!!

annslee | austin newborn photographer

I was lucky enough to photograph her birth and then I got to do her newborn session less than one week later.  She is (was – she is now almost 2 months old) a tiny little peanut and oh so good for her session!  I bet she’s changed so much already!

I took a few photos of her nursery while she was filling her tummy.  Such a cool room, it feels like such a warm haven….

Congrats again Amanda & Trent on the birth of your beautiful daughter!  I can’t wait to see how much Miss Annslee has changed at 6 months old!!

full circle | austin baby photographer

I can’t believe that these two are already one!  Wow.  It’s always a blast catching up with this family!  I’m pretty sure their love of the camera has something to do with their momma.  If you read her blog, you know they are certainly not under photographed!  I’ve been lucky enough to get to photograph them several times during their first year.  It still makes me weepy to look at these, I really love these and I’ll never stop thinking of them as Gilligan & Skipper!  But really, could Cooper and Spencer be any cuter?  I think not….

And I have to share this….mid session I had the idea to recreate this pose from their newborn session….only well…uhm….yeeeeeaah.  I think this is the perfect time to say “Oh what a difference a year makes!!!!!”  HA!

Real life IS worth photographing 😉

funny little baby | cedar park newborn photographer

This little guy made me laugh, while shooting, while proofing and now, while blogging.  These have long since been delivered but I still wanted to come share a few more from his newborn session.

First, he was sleepy.

And then he was chill.

And very happy.

He’s got a little rock star in him too.

Man I’m a sucker for a good baby mohawk.  Especially on a very chill baby….

I’m telling you, this little guy is a character!

He’s cuddly too.

And oh yeah, a couple of outtakes, these make me laugh so much.  It’s like he realizes crazy photographer lady is STILL there!!  HAHA!

These two crack.me.up.  Curious little guy!  HA!

C Family, I think you have one amazing, funny, sweet little guy on your hands, congrats again!!

the heart of texas | austin family photographer

I have a soft spot in my heart for families of 5 with 3 little kiddos.  And this momma, wow, this momma has it all under control and makes it look easy with 3, 2 & under.  Yes, you read that right.  And she’s cool, calm & collected.  And even sane!  If raising 3 little ones wasn’t enough, she also raises money for the March of Dimes.  I’m telling you, she’s hiding a super mom cape under there somewhere, I just know it….

And these two little cuties, Mason & Wyatt, are just the happiest little guys ever.  AND, get this!  Just today, they found out that they landed a part on the hit TV show, Friday Night Lights on NBC for this coming up season!!  How cool is that!?  I can’t wait to see them on the show….and I’ll be able to say I knew them before they were famous!

Big brother Rhett just turned two a few weeks ago.  He stole my heart….he is sooo sweet and has the dreamiest eyes ever….

Kim & Monte, thanks for coming out tonight, I had such a great time photographing your beautiful family of 5!
