Sweet Pea | Austin Newborn Photographer

Adorable Newborn Alert!! Meet Miss “E”, just 5 days old and sooooo alert during her photo session! Definitely one of my most challenging newborns to date! But oooooh sooo cute! She has the chubbiest cheeks! I tried out my new green pea pod with her and she curled right up and went to sleep. I think her mom may be purchasing a pea pod for herself when she saw how snug and happy it made her little sweet pea!

One | Austin Baby Photographer

Meet this little cutie pie, Miss “C”, who just turned one years old. Isn’t she sweet? Once my camera came out, she didn’t want to give smiles easily, but I got some great ones that I know her parents will love. She’s just darling in pink!! I love bold bright colors! They photograph so well. The “cake smash” at the end of her photo session was so fun too! Enjoy your sneak peek, “S” family!

Baby “A” | Austin Newborn Photographer

Look at this adorable baby girl I got to photograph last week! She’s 5 lbs of total cuteness and slept the entire session and even cooperated with her daddy and I to get this beautiful photo (inspired by Anne Geddes):

She was covered head to toe in a rash (allergic reaction) but you’d never have known if I hadn’t have told you! This is why I loooove Photoshop! Enjoy your sneak peek “M” family!

Peaceful | Austin Baby Photographer

Hayden turns 11 months old this week. His first birthday is fast approaching (April 4th). I’ve been wanting to try to get some “sleepy newborn” photos of him before he outgrows his chubby baby body – I am so pleased with the result of my first attempt! My precious boy fell into a deep sleep for about 15 minutes, long enough for me to work some magic at baby posing…

A New Life | Austin Adoption Photographer

I had the privilege of photographing 9 month old, Baby Nate, who was adopted from Ethiopia last month. He is a gorgeous little boy with the biggest brown eyes I’ve ever seen. The minute I walked into their home, I could feel the love and happiness all around. This tiny child, born into an orphanage, will now be raised in a loving Christ-centered home in the United States of America. Amazing to think about how that will shape him as he grows up and the impact he’ll have as a grown man. A man of God. Enjoy your sneak peak, “G” family! (Edited to add: Baby Nate is wearing his traditional Ethiopian boy’s linen two-piece outfit with hand-embroidery – isn’t it beautiful?)
