Two become Three

I was invited to meet the most precious new baby this week! Richard and Jessica are proud new parents to baby CJ. It was one of our rare, cold days in March, here in Austin, but we were cozy inside by the fire with the special warmth a new baby brings! This in-home session was full of the sweetest snuggles, gorgeous light, and an incredible heirloom cradle. Congratulations you three! You are a beautiful family.

Sneak Peek at Baby Hazel!

David and Emily welcomed their first child into the world on Thanksgiving Day! Her name is Hazel, and she is a marvel. I spent the afternoon on Sunday with the three of them. It was casual and relaxed as they tended to Hazel’s needs and spent time snuggling. Watching them together was a gift. It is a great privilege for me when parents trust me to document this moment in their life together, and the beginning of this new little life they created. Congratulations David and Emily! Here is your sneak peek.

Baby Grace's Sneak Peek!

I first met the Prud’hommes last fall when they booked a mini session with me. Their son Easton was fun and energetic! Well, other than adding a daughter to the mix, not much has changed. Easton still moves around rapidly and has lots to do! His parents are fun and engaged, seemingly not missing a beat in all the newness of this season of life. Baby Grace is the sweetest addition, and it was an honor to photograph her in her home during the first weeks of her life. Congratulations you guys! Easton has given his two thumbs up, and I agree with him…your family is marvelous.

Baby Jimmy's Sneak Peek!

I love the challenge of a Newborn Session with an older sibling under 2! Mostly, because it’s not a challenge as much as it is good fast-paced fun! It’s a moment when the attention is as much on the toddler as it is on the new baby. The session beats to the sibling’s drum, and I take cues from their interests and their need to move, play, and explore. We keep it playful and casual, and we take our time. This big brother never stopped moving! His Dad did an incredible job keeping him happy and entertained, and his mom did a wonderful job staying relaxed and welcoming the beautiful chaos! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek from baby Jimmy’s Newborn Session.
