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!!

meet will | austin newborn photographer

Remember awhile back when I got together with a great group of Austin women to do a group trash the dress session?  Well, one of my photog buddies, Libby, was supposed to be there that day.  Except, the morning of, Libby didn’t feel well.  Libby had the flu.  Well…..Libby thought she had the flu.  But what Libby really had….er, uhm, has… a Will….

haha!  Isn’t he just the most fabulous, squishy little thing ever?!?!  Congrats you guys!  We got some great shots today, can’t wait to show you the rest!  Oh, and for what it is worth, I totally thought Ty was the flu too!

I’m off to session #2 today here in a bit.  I’ll be back tonight with more sneak peeks!

more birth photos | austin birth photographer

I just finished proofing the birth of these two little cuties and I love the images to much.  I wanted to come back and share a few more….

I took this one through the nursery glass……shhhhh……that was a no-no so don’t tell.  I honestly just could not resist.  He was laying there all cute and new, sporting his freshly combed faux hawk at all of less than one hour old.  I had to.

Can I get a collective ‘awwwwwww’….

I love love love this one….

Sigh….newborn babies are just the best.

((((Insert my husband shaking his head no, no, no, no more when he sees the look in my eyes when I get home from photographing a birth lol))))

austin birth photography . the birth of lucy

A big thank you to Lucy’s parents for allowing me to share their birth experience, birth is an intimate experience and it takes a lot to put yourself out there.  Big kudos to you guys!  I love these images.  I’m thankful they love them too and that they are allowing me to share them.  I hope these images capture their day, Lucy’s day.  I hope they capture how beautiful, and faith filled this family is.

the birth of lucy

I have to tell you that for the first time since I picked up a dslr camera, I wished it had a video feature (hmmmm, maybe I do need that new 5D).  At the end of the slideshow, you’ll see a little boy, a big brother, with bright eyes, blond hair and a big smile.  He’d been planning for awhile to sing his new little sister her first song.  He did it beautifully.  He sung Jesus Loves Me, all the way through and barely took his eyes off of his new baby sister, smiling the whole time.  I’m surprised the images out of my camera are even in focus because I shot them with my eyes welled up with tears, it was that sweet.

And thank you all so much for your warm comments to the post below.  That image will remain one of my all time favorites for many years to come.

Congratulations again K Family!

a photographer’s dream

in every way.  she is so beautiful and was soooooo good for her session.  sleepy….we did 3 setups in less than the first 20 minutes I was there.  we moved her all around and she even posed herself….

so dreamy…..she’s got the whole pouty mouth thing down to perfection…..

her momma was one of the very first to book with me when we opened our business in Austin.  I have been super excited to do this session, I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for her to arrive.  ok, maybe not for-ever…but awhile, and little miss A was soooo worth the wait!  T – I hope you guys like your sneak peeks!

ps – MC made me the hat and wrap in the first shot and she did a gorgeous job!  Thanks MC – you rock!
