The Heirloom Box

The Heirloom Box….because what mama doesn’t love to go get the mail and be surprised with a treasure box filled with lovely little goodies hand selected just for her? All mamas who book a session with me will find such a box in their mail a few weeks after our session together 🙂

Ember, 11 days new | Houston Newborn Photographer

Every baby entrusted to me for a newborn session is a treasure, a unique, priceless gem. Even as tiny babies just days old, each one is so unique, from the way they look to what they like and dislike! Some are squishy, some are long and lean, some don’t like to be on their bellies, some like to be swaddled, some don’t like their fingers to be messed with, and some, well, some will sleep through just about anything and let me play all day to my heart’s content! But when a baby has been longed for, prayed for, and wished for for such a very, very long time like this sweet little beauty, well, it just makes me really stop for a second and admire the miracle of life all over again. ❤ Here are some of my favorites from sweet little Ember's session…

Alonso Family|Houston Family Photographer

Often on my drive home from a session, I feel a little twinge of sadness because…well, it’s over! Might sound strange, but I usually spend so much time working with mommas prior to our session together that completing our session is the temporary end of all our little texts back and forth, planning, putting outfits together, tweaking, laughing, and just building up a lot of excitement before the day of our shoot. This session was no different, and my hope is that each portrait here conveys to you a little piece of the greater story of this family’s love for one another <3.
