6 days old | Austin Newborn Photographer

On Saturday, I got to hold and photograph precious baby “S” who weighs all of 6 lbs and was 6 days old. His new mommy and daddy warned me about what a light sleeper he’s been but after about 30 minutes of position changing and shushing, he learned to sleep through his first professional photo session. I got so many great photos of him and his proud parents! Enjoy your sneak peak, “G” family! Your gallery will be ready later this week. Congrats on your beautiful son!

PS. Today is my 7th Wedding Anniversary!!! I’ve been married to my sweetie for *seven* years today! (Last year we actually forgot about our anniversary until a week afterwards, so this year I wanted to make sure that doesn’t happen again!) hehe Happy Anniversary Nathan!!

What a precious baby!! I love the ones of the baby in the “bowl”, it looks like he is in a little fruit dish on a dining room table which makes him look EXTRA tiny! Great shots!

Hayden is 9.5 months old!

Hayden is two weeks away from turning 10 months old. His first year of life has literally flown by. I was looking back at some of his baby pictures tonight and it feels like yesterday that I took them. Hayden has been with us in person longer than he was with me in the womb. I’ve always thought the 9 month old “birthday” was a special one because it marks the same amount of time spent outside the womb as spent inside. What an amazing little boy he is already. So loving and cuddly. He loves to give hugs and kisses. He can drink through a straw already! He adores his big brother and I think he actually misses him when Hunter is at preschool everyday. He’s a mommy’s boy. I love this phase of development. Tonight while I was bathing him, I was singing and he started bopping his body up and down – dancing to my song. That’s the first time I’ve seen him “dance”. Such a sweetie pie.

Here are a few pics I took of him yesterday in our bathroom. The sun light was hitting his face and making his eyes sparkle. I grabbed my camera to see if I could take a few pics of him in that light.

I love his smile…

One more from the other day

I’m getting one of my previous sessions ready for the lab tonight and fell in love with this photo all over again. I love the look of love on his mother’s face and the sparkle in his eyes…

Speaking of love, Valentine’s day is a month away!:-)

I check your blog regularly and really love your photos! I found a link to you months ago (on the old blog) and originally got interested because Hunter is exactly two days older than my beloved nephew. Hope you don’t mind; I even gave the link to a friend of mine who lives in Austin (& has a 9-month-old son).

I love this session; adorable family!!

BTW, you seem to know lots of people with multiples. Is that an Austin thing?

Merry Christmas!

From our family to yours… Merry Christmas! Remembering that Jesus is the reason for this season. I am so thankful that our God, Everlasting Father, gave his only Son, Jesus, on this day, to be born for us all, who changed the world, who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, who took MY place on the cross so that I don’t have to pay the price for my own sins when I die. Happy Birthday, Jesus. Thank you for Your eternal gift of salvation!
