Glowing | Austin Maternity Photographer

Spending the morning with this gorgeous family gave me the serious baby bug! I loved every minute of this session, the beautiful morning light – the way it made this stunning mama glow with such radiance. She seriously has the perfect baby bump!:)

Her little one year old son is all boy. He loved playing with his tractor in the dirt! He’s quick on his feet too! Look at those baby blues…:)

He has a great daddy too.

I hope you enjoy your sneak peek, “Q” family! I can’t wait to meet your new baby in December!

Two-gether | Austin Baby Photographer

I enjoyed meeting the “R” family for their twins 4 month (8 month adjusted) photo session! These sweet girl/boy twins have such a chemistry between each other. She loves to play with his hands. He loves to eat her hands. The session took place on a rare 90+ degree day in the middle of October, making it possible to get some adorable sleeping baby basket portraits that are quickly becoming the hallmark of Ella Bella Photography! Enjoy your sneak peek!!

PS. Have I ever told you how much I love photographing families with multiples? Love love love it!! It makes my heart swell.:)

Our Family Session | Bethany Dawn Photography

We just got back from a quick trip to Albuquerque, NM to see my family and to go to the Balloon Fiesta! While we were there, we met our awesome photographer friend, Bethany Dawn for a holiday family photo session! She completely blew me away with the photos she was able to capture of my family! She rocks!!! My boys suffer from a bad case of PCS (photographer’s child syndrome) and they are also going through the whole throw-yourself-on-the-ground tantrum phase of life! Not to mention they are lightning fast and well, it was a workout but look at what she captured…. (Thank you so much Bethany!!!!) A big shout out to my sister Ashley who came along for the photo session and got some great smiles out of the boys too! Love ya sis!!!

PS. Hunter is turning 3 and Hayden is 18 months old in these photos!:)

Baby Love | Austin Newborn Photographer

I love newborns. Especially this one. So sleepy and bendy and beautiful – a newborn photographer’s dream! Can I say beautiful about a newborn baby boy?:)

He has two handsome older brothers who are so super cute! I thought I had little boys pretty well figured out and could talk the lingo (since I have 2 little boys of my own!) but I soon realized that I have a lot to learn about Bakugan and Star Wars and all the things they are into once they outgrow Elmo, Dinosaurs and Diego…;)(or have an older brother to show them what’s really cool!)

Despite the slightly cooler weather on this day, I was able to capture these sweet outdoor portraits. Love those lips!! Enjoy your sneak peek, “D” family!!
