“When you’re a mom, you get the best seat to the greatest show in town. Watching your children grow up.” – Rebecca Pearson, This Is Us

Can you believe this is the same little boy from the newborn family session featured in my last blog post? It really is amazing how fast these little ones grow, and how they seem to change every single day. It seems like just yesterday that I was taking Henry’s newborn photos with his Dad, Mom, and their sweet fur baby. Now, what feels like just a few seconds later, I’m sitting down to tell you all about his six-month milestone session. These sweet babies really do grow up as fast as everyone says—or maybe even faster than they say! Sweet baby Henry changed so much in the six months between his newborn session and his six-month-old milestone session. I would have never imagined I would say this because he was pretty sweet at his newborn session, but he’s even cuter now than before. He was so smiley, had the most delicious chubby cheeks, and I especially loved how his gorgeous blue eyes lit up when he was playing with or looking at his mom.

There really is such a special relationship between a mother and her firstborn, and there seems to be an extra special bond between a mama and her little boy. Sweet Henry loves his mama so much, and he had the cutest giggles as they played together. Seeing little ones play at this age is so sweet and is, by far, one of my favorite things to photograph. The curiosity in their expressions is so fun to watch, and I love seeing their focused expressions as their chubby little fingers reach for a toy or a loved one’s face! I’m so excited to continue to watch Henry grow, and to help his family capture more of these special milestone moments!

I schedule a limited amount of in-home sessions each month, and one of the main things I look for when I schedule these sessions is natural lighting. This natural light is one of the most important things for maintaining the light and airy aesthetic that you see in my photos. When I walked into this family’s home, I was so happy to see the most gorgeous natural light pouring in through the windows. Finding natural light like this is every photographer’s dream! I also love when my clients choose light-colored wall colors and home décor. The combination of gorgeous natural light and light-colored home décor provides the perfect backdrop for your family’s photos and makes my job so easy to do!


I also love in-home newborn sessions because it’s so fun to be able to see how much love and effort parents put into their children’s nurseries. It’s definitely a labor of love, and it shows in this gorgeous nursery. I love the light and bright, neutral décor with the small touches of colorful accents. This love also showed in this sweet family’s interactions together, as you can see in each photo. The love and happiness they share is so easy to see in their happy smiles and the way they look at each other.


I had so much fun photographing this newborn session with little Henry, his parents, and their dog. Their dog LOVED being in the photos and was so sweet and gentle with his baby brother. I love the moments we captured with the dog watching over Henry, and I’m sure they’ll have so much fun together as Henry grows. I love incorporating family pets into our photo sessions, because they’re part of the family, too! And family pets definitely hold a huge place in our hearts and in our lives.

“There is an endearing tenderness in the love of a mother to a son that transcends all other affections of the heart.” – Washington Irving
I love all of the photos from this family session, but I almost died as I was taking photos of mama with her boys because they were just so sweet and loving! With her oldest son’s arms around her neck and the two younger boys playing nearby, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this cute family. I also loved how patient this sweet mom was with her boys. There truly is something so special about the relationship between a mama and her sons.

We had so much fun just playing together, and I love how you can see that playfulness in the images! I especially loved watching these sweet boys with their one-year-old baby brother, Cal. They were just the sweetest and loved to make him laugh! I was able to capture so many sweet family hugs and snuggles, and I couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out.
The saying, “boys will be boys” was definitely true during this family session—and to be honest, every family session I photograph. But instead of scolding the boys, mom and dad were so sweet and patient, and I was so glad! I love capturing candid, natural poses and interactions, and when I’m photographing three little boys, I know I’ll be working with some wiggles. But that’s okay! I’d much rather help your children find a creative and photograph-worthy outlet for their wiggles. Having to get after kiddos immediately zaps the fun out of the session for the kiddos and the parents, so I’m more than happy to work with your family to capture happy and loving (and sometimes just a little bit crazy) interactions. Because, let’s be honest, this is real life when you’re the parents of little kids. And isn’t that what we’re trying to capture in a family session?

This is the first family session I ever did in my in-home studio (and I’ve done many since), and I am hooked! I’ve since removed anything that isn’t white since I’m clearly all about all things light and airy 😉 We scheduled the Moore’s family session for the dead of summer when it was over 100 degrees, and it was just so hot outside that we decided to switch to a studio session to try and escape the heat. I am SO thankful for my air conditioner! We basically treated this session like an in-home lifestyle session, but the Moore family didn’t have to worry about cleaning their house (and KEEPING it clean) so it would be photo-ready. This is so hard to do when you’re pregnant, trying to juggle two kids, and want to have hair and makeup done—not to mention dressing your kiddos in cute outfits and keeping them clean and wrinkle-free! I would say this was a win-win—they had the coziness of an in-home lifestyle session with the convenience of a studio session.  Kyler and Halie were both SO excited to have their photos taken, so we ran with that energy and kept the entire session lighthearted and fun so we could show off their playful personalities. As I looked through the photos after the session, I completely fell in love with everyone’s huge smiles! I love how Kyler and Halle’s happy and energetic personalities rubbed off on everyone and had all of us smiling for the entire session. I might have been a sweaty mess by the end, but it was more than worth it. Julie sent me photos of the prints she hung on their walls at home, and it made my photographer heart so happy to see my work blown up and displayed so prominently in their home! I was also able to take this cute family’s newborn photos a few months later, and it was fun to meet sweet baby Madelyn and take some updated family photos. Sweet baby Madelyn is just as adorable as her older brother and sister, and I am so excited to share photos from this session!

I took maternity photos last summer for the Varma family and was so happy to see them again with their newest family member, their sweet baby girl Elizabeth! This session was in my in-home studio, which is the perfect place for newborn sessions or family photos when you have a newborn. We were able to keep baby Elizabeth comfortable and warm (and avoid getting too warm outside in our Texas sunshine) and capture so many timeless photos with her parents and big brother.

Big brother Beckett wasn’t too into the idea of taking photos, so we had to get a bit creative. We played with the handmade wooden cars from my studio collection—they are so much more photogenic than your typical brightly-colored toys and so much less distracting in photos. Beckett was also more than happy to help us find and point out Elizabeth’s ten tiny fingers and toes, and I love the photos we were able to take during these sweet moments. I also have a few other tricks up my sleeve to help when toddlers are less than cooperative, but I can’t share all of my secrets here! 😉

I just love Elizabeth’s gorgeous head full of dark hair, so I took about a million photos of her precious little head. I love the way her dark hair contrasts with the light and bright design of my studio and the outfits Lindsay chose for her family. I am so in love with how Lindsay styled her family’s session! I mean, how adorable is that gorgeous white bonnet and monogrammed diaper cover? And did you notice that Beckett’s outfit is a miniature version of his dad’s shirt? Father and son or mother and daughter twinning is so cute! I also have several props in my studio that I love to incorporate—I love using my Moses basket for a few sleepy shots, I love the texture it adds to a photo. And I love taking photos of newborns and families snuggling on the bed. It just feels so homey and makes the photos feel so natural and comfortable.
