I can’t believe we’re less than two weeks away from our big move to the Houston area, more specifically Pearland, Texas. Pearland is on the SE side of Houston and less than an hour from Galveston Bay, which means I will get to offer those beautiful beach sessions that us landlocked photographers often admire from afar. In terms of location scouting, Houston really does have it all. I’m excited to get out and explore – after 8 years in my beloved Kansas City (sniff, sniff) it will be wonderful to find new favorite shooting spots.
While I love beautiful, soft natural light, I do offer both natural light and studio lighting in my sessions, dependent upon the session vision, location and available light sources. Just as I’ve done the past 8 years here in KC, I will be building a new studio space in Pearland for my boutique newborn sessions, as well as select baby/toddler and maternity sessions. I’m booking session appointments now for sessions taking place in early September and onward.
Newborn sessions are booked during the second and third trimesters and take place 7-10 days after birth in my studio where we have access to a host of beautiful wraps, blankets, fabrics, headbands, hats, backdrops and props. Newborn sessions can be as colorful or as neutral as a client prefers, with a mix of both modern and vintage elements woven throughout. The focus is always on complementing baby’s tiny features and poses that are serene, natural and safe. I shoot with a full-time newborn session assistant who is on-hand to ensure there’s always a spotter for baby when I back up to take each shot. And my assistant is a world-class snuggler in between setups, allowing parents to truly sit back and relax (even nap!) during our sessions.
As I continue my massive blog catch-up, below are three of the sweetest recent newborns to visit my studio:
First up, beautiful Everly (don’t you love that name!?).
Then, sweet Finley came for a visit. I just photographed his six-month session last weekend, so it’s definitely time to blog these! Check out his big grins!
And tiny Owen was such a little peanut. We could have loved on him all day – such a great sleeper and super snuggly baby:
I love when grandparents come to the sessions and always encourage a few “generations” shots for the memory books. This is one young grandma! 🙂
