Baby love - Lake Jackson, TX newborn photographer

So...a year or so ago, I said I wasn't going to work with newborns anymore. I know, I know, probably not the best way to start a newborn blog post. But sometimes I say things that I don't completely mean. I think I'm rediscovering my love of working with newborns, but I've realized that I really have to do it the way that works for me. There are some astounding, flat our miracle workers locally when it comes to newborns. I really don't consider myself one of those. And I think in trying to be one of those miracle workers, I began to tell myself that perhaps I should just leave the newborn work to them. But I believe that there is a beautiful and honest way to capture newborns that is very much my style. I just need to stay true to me and what I love. And that includes family involvement in as many of the photos as I can.

And this doll was very kind to me. Such a sweet, perfect little gentleman.

Meet Oliver - Lake Jackson, TX birth photographer

I think this is the 6th birth that I've photographed and it was totally my favorite because this little guy is our new nephew!! It was just such an honor to be there and be able to help tell his birth story through pictures. I had a hard time narrowing it down for this post because I just want to share them all!! So anyway, meet our new nephew, Oliver. He cleans up pretty nice.

Baby Colby - Lake Jackson, TX newborn photographer

I'm not *really* doing newborn photography anymore so I kind of hesitate to put these up, but I just can't help it. This was one of the easiest newborn sessions I've done. This little man was amazing and I really love the images that we were able to capture. And I think I really just prefer newborn photos to mostly be in b&w so that's what I'm putting up. Such a sweet boy.

Baby Cohen - Lake Jackson, TX newborn photographer

I'm pulling a late night tonight, but I decided I need to share these images of Cohen and his folks before I do anything else! Since I love all of these in black and white so much, that's what you're going to see. They are such a beautiful family! And just in case you see them around town, be sure to welcome them to the great state of Texas.

custom mini albums

These are so crazy cute! I finally ordered these 3X3 mini albums of our family photos and I just love them. These come in packs of 3 and are $30 per album, so $90 for all three. They are totally custom per client and can include up to 12 images, including the front and back covers. They also have a nifty magnetic closure. Great for your purse or for grandparents.
