Creamy + Lace Baby Girl Session | Houston Newborn Photographer

Custom photography is an investment, and it’s an investment that you would look back again and again years from now. It’s all about your family, your little ones, and all the precious details about this stage of life. I often go above and beyond to provide highly personalized style of portraiture in both photographs and experience.

My client booked during her first trimester, but we waited until later for our first meeting. During our pre-session consultation, mom wanted her newborn baby’s session to be full of lace, as she would be named after her grandma, a beautiful lady who loved lace. I love the timelessness and elegance of lace so I’ve been stocking on this kind of fabrics over time. I picked creamy white for her props as it always goes well with the lace and match with the tan and brown shades in my client’s house. We also met with their 2-year-old firstborn daughter so we got to know each other before the session.

On the day of the session, I felt so blessed to meet my client’s two daughters, each beautiful and unique in their own way. I spent a lot of time playing and talking with big sister. At her age, it’s still difficult to cope with the changes of having a new baby at home. We snapped a few pictures for her first so she would feel important. We became best friend. We tried to take some sibling pictures together, but our first attempts did not succeed. Mom was nice enough to say that it’s ok if we couldn’t get any sibling portraits, but from the bottom of my heart, I knew how important these memories would be for Mom.

So I moved on to work with her precious newborn girl. I prepared a few cute lace outfits but she fussed whenever I unwrapped her. Mom said that she loved to be swaddled, so we kept her bundled up for the entire session, and she was happy and peacefully asleep. Even with the swaddle, I wanted to show some of her skin, so I deliberately expose her tiny hands and feet. Mom reassured me that Dad loved her feet, so I made sure that I had plenty of images captured with her feet out.

We came back to big sister again and tried some other tricks. With patience and love, she was finally in the mood of taking some pictures together with baby sister. Mom and I were thrilled and relieved! As a mom of two little girls, I understand how often kids can have an off-day. My approach is always gentleness and kindness. I never force my client’s young ones to do anything, but relationship can change the whole atmosphere. As we wrapped up our session, big sister ran and jumped onto me, and gave me a big hug. I kept praising how well she’s been during the session. Her trust and love is my best reward for the day.

To me, photography is more about client relationship (including my little clients!) than merely a business. I focus plenty of time and attention crafting premier, artistic images and providing the best experience to each client. For this reason, my studio takes on very limited photography sessions each month.

Teresa does such an amazing job at her in home studio! She had tons of props and poses to choose from. She took the time to meet with me before to preplan the session, and after to review prints. She was incredibly patient with our little almost threenager when she was being her uncooperative self for sibling photos. I highly recommend her for newborn, or even sibling and family photos! – Andrea L.
