Austin Newborn Photographer | Teddy Bear Dreams

“He is a blessing, a little bit of Heaven, sent down to Earth.”

He really is just a little bit of Heaven and is certainly blessed with a family who completely adores him. I love it when Dad’s are excited to be a part of the session and Merrick’s dad was really so sweet, excited about his outfits and which backdrops we were going to use.

Mom and dad both loved my grey sleepy cap outfit and I do think those images are so precious. I love, love the image of him sleeping, wearing that ridiculously cute cap, snuggled up with his teddy bear.

I will say the image with mom and dad holding Merrick and little brother photo bombing them is my absolute favorite sibling image I’ve ever taken as an Austin baby photographer. This image was completely spontaneous and I didn’t even know I had captured it until I was sorting through the session. Mom and dad love it as well and plan on hanging a canvas of this image in their bedroom.

I always allow time for the siblings to be photographed by themselves during my Austin TX newborn photographer sessions. I think it’s so important give big brother/sister a little special attention and captures them in the ‘now’ when baby arrived.

When you book a session with me, your favorite Austin TX newborn photographer, your session is absolutely worry free. I know it’s tough to be still or ‘pose’ when you’re little. Whether your child is holding the baby or having their moment alone in front of the camera, I’ve got things covered. I make sure the poses are safe and full of smiles, plus a little giggling here and there (that’s my favorite!)

Sweet Pink Bundle | Austin TX Newborn Photographer

I love being an Austin TX newborn photographer, but there’s nothing better than photographing a sweet little baby that belongs to one of my close friends!

This little one’s mama was all about pink and delicate flowers, as they had hoped and prayed for a little girl for some time. Her nursery is decorated with owls, so I ordered this owl special just for her. I love how it blends into the creamy backdrop without taking over the shot. <3

Can you believe how much baby looks like her big brother? He could not get enough of her!

One thing I always work into my Austin TX newborn photographer sessions is time for the siblings to be photographed by themselves. While we’re all there to celebrate baby, this gives the big brother/sister a little special attention and captures them in the ‘now’ when baby arrived.

Birthday Wishes | Austin Baby Photographer

Balloons and birthday cakes are so much fun!!!

Austin Cake Smash Photographer

I always marvel as an Austin baby photographer at how fast my little newborn clients grow into these precious babies so full of laughter, love and personality. She was such a joy at her cake smash. It’s so much fun to watch them I have to remember to take the pictures too!   She had as much fun with the balloons as she did smashing her tasty cake so I’m not sure which was her favorite. Not all babies love to smash a cake so I advise my parents to let them smash a few cupcakes before their big day. Sweet Finley didn’t have any reservations, however, about digging into her cake and loved every crumb!

Her cake really was beautiful and I absolutely loved her session designed in the pink and gold theme her mom chose. Cake smashes are a great opportunity to celebrate their growing personality, just let them have fun and not necessarily worry about that “perfect” shot. I find these images are often some of the most treasured. My goal in cake smash sessions, as with any of my sessions, is to work closely with mom and dad to design a session that truly reflects this moment in their precious little person’s life. The sky is the limit with a cake smash and can be simple and elegant or whimsical and fun. I am really lucky to have found an amazing baker at Sugar Love Bake Shop! She is so sweet to to work with me on my cake smashes and really can make visions come to life. They are as delicious as they are beautiful!

 

 

Happy birthday Finley! It was such a joy to capture your sweet smiles this year!

 

Snuggles and Cuddles | Austin Newborn Photographer

I love welcoming all new babies into my Austin Newborn Photography studio, but I especially watching my families grow.  Big brother was one of my tiny clients as an Austin Newborn Photographer not too long ago. They look so much alike as babies  with their wispy blond hair and sweet little faces. I have a soft spot in my heart for brothers as I have three boys of my own. Of course, brotherly love isn’t always about hugs and kisses but when those moments happen they are really special and I was really excited to capture one of them.

I get asked all the time as an Austin Newborn Photographer how I get the babies to sleep so peacefully. While some babies are naturally more interested in sleep than others I do have a  few tricks up my sleeve. I have three favorite products I use during my sessions. The first is the Baby Shusher. It has been called the “Soothing Sleep Miracle for Babies” and I do believe that is absolutely true! This little device makes a gentle shooshing sound that settles babies and helps to keep them in a quiet sleep.  The second is a weighted swaddle blanket. I have found any kind of gentle pressure on the chest and sides of baby mimics the sensation of being held. The third is relatively new is called the Tranquillo Mat. This mat provides the reassurance of the womb by mimicking a mom’s heartbeat and motions through gentle vibrations and soft sounds. I never leave baby unattended, however, when using these products and you should follow all product directions regarding baby’s safety when they are in use. The links are copied below. Happy Napping!

Sweet Little Archer | Austin Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Archer was quite the charmer! His cheeks alone are enough to fall in love with him. I do have to admit, I am partial to squishy, baby cheeks as an Austin newborn photographer!!! You could kiss them all day. He really was the prettiest little baby with so much hair and a perfect little nose. He was also just the sweetest, just sleeping away for almost the entire session.

I am also lucky enough to have worked with his beautiful mama even before he came along and she chose me as her Austin newborn photographer. She is as sweet and beautiful as her little guy. Her maternity pictures were stunning and I was so excited about her Austin maternity session.

 

 

My newborn sessions are styled with a simple, classic look customized with your colors and highlighted with handmade accessories and props. As an Austin baby photographer, my sessions are based in Austin, TX and the beautiful surrounding Hill Country area including Drippings Springs, Bee Caves and Lakeway. I have mentored with two of the top newborn photographers in the last three years, am current on my whooping cough vaccine and have studied the best ways to keep baby warm, sleepy, safe and comfortable during their session. A tip I always give my mom and dads is to stroke the area above their little nose, between their eyes in a downward motion. I consulted with an acupuncturist on key pressure points and found this point is known as the third eye in yoga. You are essentially “closing” their eye when you apply pressure to this point and stroking downward.
