When I captured this amazing image of these two, I just fell in love with it.  I even told my husband..  “Gosh, I wish we had gotten a picture like this when I was pregnant with our three”.  I know this will be one image that they will look back and feel the joy, happiness and love that this precious baby was bringing to their life.

Let me tell you a little about this mom, she is the most stylish and beautiful momma there is.   She is always dressed to the nines, hair & makeup are perfect and her personality is just as beautiful.

She came to this session in the cutest cheetah print with her infamous high heels.  She did not disappoint!!  Dad showed up in this vest suit and he was just as dapper.   Mom in her heels, dad in his cowboy boots..

I especially loved the photo we took with the two pairs of boots, babies and dads, and mom’s heels with the words, THE BLUMS.   I can’t wait to meet this precious little boy.  I know he will be so loved!!

When mom called to tell me she wanted to have a newborn session in a field, I was so excited.  I had a vision of this sweet baby with beautiful light all around her.    I envisioned sweet L with a crown and angel wings with the glow of the sun all around her.

When we captured this image, it took my breath away.   Such a peaceful baby angel.   We got moms vision, a newborn session in a field.

We then took out the other props we wanted to use.   We captured some images with pearls that were moms, quilt that grandma had made and tons of bows that mom had bought.   Between all her bows and mine, we had a grand time dressing up sweet baby L.  We were able to capture some while she was awake, then mom fed her and we got her to sleep.  I love having both awake and sleeping photos of newborns.

Then the piece of resistance came out…  Mom had a crown of flowers made.  The beautiful crown was filled with fresh flowers and smelled divine!!  I think we both swooned when we put the crown on her.   She was breathtaking!!

Doesn’t she look absolutely stunning?    She is truly a gift from above.

Newborn Sessions are so special.   I work hard to get you some images that you will just swoon over and will look back in years and cherish.

A cake smash is the perfect way to celebrate a one year old birthday!!   It’s such a special birthday celebrating all the milestones from the first year.

At these sessions we start out taking photos that mom and dad want to make sure we capture before we start the cake smash .   Mom had a list of photos that she knew wanted to capture.  We started out with family photos, pictures of J with balloons, J playing and mom had a special shirt made for this special birthday.

Cake Smash

After we made sure we had all those special pictures…  THE CAKE CAME OUT…

I have noticed that sometimes kids are a little shy about sticking their fingers in their own cake.  J started out just looking at the cake, he wasn’t sure what to do with it.   Mom had to help him taste the frosting so he would know how much yummy sweetness was sitting in from of him.   Once we got him to finally explore his cake, it was all fun from there on out.   Not only did he eat the cake, but he played with the frosting, tried to re-frost the cake, and got it all over him from head to toe.

Mom’s usually start the conversation, “I have a senior guy and I need a photographer…  He’s a guy who doesn’t like getting his pictures taken.” I love hearing that!!  You see, I have a 17 year old boy and I know how to talk to them.   Senior guys just need a little coaxing sometimes to get them to have a fabulous session

I always start the session asking them about what they do in high school, what their plans are for next year and if they are ready for the next chapter in their life.   I love talking to senior guys about what the future holds for them and what they want to do.  These sessions quick become fun for them.   We end up just chatting about life .. I think having a son of my own helps put them at ease.

I also notice that guys always want to give me their serious face.  At first I let them do what they feel most comfortable with.  I don’t want them to pressure them and have them not want to be photographed.   Once I feel like they are comfortable, the smiles come out.   This adorable senior wanted to keep giving me his serious face.   Once i saw his gorgeous smile, I had him to one serious and one smile photo for each take.   I don’t think he realized what a gorgeous smile he had.   K has a bright future ahead of him..  he’s personable, kind, smart & handsome!  There are great things in store for him.

This stunning Senior Beauty has the most beautiful eyes.  We wanted to make sure that each picture from this session showed off her eyes.Senior Beauty in Park in Tomball, TX

One thing we knew we wanted for this session was to have pictures that were different from her friends.  She wanted her photos to be unique and different.   It’s so hard sometimes with everyones busy schedules to find a date, time and location.   Its best to plan Senior pictures early in your senior year before the year gets crazy.

One of my favorite shots is capturing laughter.   Sometimes I get genuine laughter by just being a bit goofy.  Sometimes I get mom to make her senior laugh, other times I have to just tell them to laugh.   That alone will generate a “are you crazy” look but it usually ends in laughter.   This is always one of the parents favorite shots.  I think it reminds them of their kids when they were little.

We picked a local, out of the way park for this session because we thought it would give us just enough variety and would make her pictures different and standout among her peers.
