When you look at the pictures below, you might get a little confused thinking that I accidentally posted a photo shoot for a baby modeling campaign.  Gerber?  GAP?  Carter’s?  Nope!  I assure you, this is just the beautiful child of one of my fabulous clients!  For real, you guys, how gorgeous and photogenic is this baby boy!?!?   I know, I know, ALL babies are cute…but this kid is seriously a model baby!  Such a sweet face, adorable amount of squishiness and perfect disposition, I can’t get over it!

Okay, I’ll try to stop gushing about how handsome this little guy is.  Seriously, I think all the babies I photograph are perfect and adorable.  That’s one of the main reasons I don’t do props, costumes, “fluff” or gimmicks…the pureness of a baby is perfection on its own!  I don’t think he or she needs to be “decorated” for pictures.  Please know, if you like lots of “bling” on your baby, I’m not criticizing you, but I’m probably not the right photographer for you!

Little girls often get the reputation for being super sweet and precious with their baby siblings, but I have certainly known some little boys who couldn’t be any sweeter!  (In the interest of full disclosure, as the mother of a son and aunt to two nephews, I do have a bit of a bias and special place in my heart for little boys!)  The adorable big brother in the photos below is such a great example of a big-hearted boy who loves his baby brother (as well as his mamma and daddy).  Seriously, could he be any cuter or sweeter?  This whole family is so great and photogenic, which helped make photographing them such a breeze!

Side note: Please don’t feel like your family has to be “sweet” or naturally photogenic for me to enjoy photographing you though!  I also love rowdy, quirky, crazy, goofy and all types of families…variety is the spice of life!  The most important thing to me is that you and your family come to me just as you are…that’s what I want to capture!

There are few (if any) things in life that can compare to delivering a baby and bringing her (or him) home as a part of your family.  As a mother, I have experienced that awesomeness, and, as a photographer, I get the pleasure of capturing these amazing moments for countless families.  The following family is particularly special to me because I’ve had the privilege of photographing them from the time their oldest little boy was in his momma tummy!  Since then, they have recently added an adorable and precious newborn girl.  (Could she be any sweeter or more perfect?!?!)  You might recognize them as they’ve been featured on here before and are just too cute for words.  I love these sweet siblings and this whole beautiful family!  I don’t think big brother could be any prouder or more excited about the arrival of this little doll!  (Obviously their parents are too, but these kids are just so captivating!)  There is such joy in seeing families grow!

Part one of two…the second half of this session will be on the blog in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned.

When you first start out as a photographer, you want to build your portfolio and will pretty much take pictures of EVERYTHING to gain experience and discover your niche.  Once you find what you’re most passionate about, you tend to narrow your field to specialize (and hopefully become your best) doing the type of photos you love the most.  I learned pretty early on that I was drawn to family life photos (birth, newborn, maternity, child and family), so that’s where my main focus lies.  I certainly have no issue with other types of sessions; I just feel I can give you my best work through the types of photos I love most.

Having said that, I’m a bit hesitant to post pictures from this session because “Senior Photos” are not part of what I really do anymore…I ONLY do senior sessions for current clients.  But this girl…she is too gorgeous not to share!  True to my style, you won’t find any props and such here, just a beautiful girl preparing to move on to the next phase of her life!  Houston Teen Photography

I promised you there would be more photos from my session with this gorgeous family!  Aside from the fact that I love these particular photos, this family is one of my favorites to photograph.  (Hey, it’s not like with I’m playing favorites among my children or anything…of course, having only one child certainly makes that easier!  A photographer is allowed to have favorites, right?  I love you all though!  Seriously, I think all my clients are amazing and beautiful!)  I’ve had the privilege of doing maternity, newborn and numerous other sessions for this crew and I adore them!  If you look back through the blog over the past few years, you’ll notice they show up more than a few times and their photos are always amazing.  They are photogenic to the max!

Dad was in the photos in the last post I did of this family, but these pictures are all of Momma and her babies!  How beautiful are they?!?!  Can you see why one post just isn’t enough?!?!
