I’m so excited to share with you this beautiful beautiful senior portrait session! It’s a new adventure for me, a newborn & family portrait photographer, to shoot senior photos, but I’m absolutely in love with it! 🙂

When I first met Janet, I found that she shares many interests with me –  we both love anything neutral-colored and timeless, but nothing distracting – which exactly describes my brand {simple. elegant. authentic}. She loves nature, wildflowers and sunshine, and she would also like her beautiful hair be portrayed in her senior images. In her pre-session questionnaire, she indicates that she loves photography as well! That surely put a big smile on my heart. As our session went, I explained to why I was posing her in certain locations and angles. I kept showing her images from the back of my camera so she felt more comfortable and confidence in herself. The results? Artistically refined images that portray Janet from various perspectives of her personality, interests, and taste.

From inquiry to booking to the actual shoot date, Janet has shown me that she is a very independent senior. Indeed, she is talented and organized. She will be pursuing her degree of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin in this coming Fall. I’m excited for her bright future and great things that are going to happen in her life! These elegant portraits of her will surely be a memory that she and her family would love to look back again and again.

Graduating soon? It’s still not too late to schedule your own styled senior portrait session. All-inclusive session packages start at $300, which include high-definition beautifully-hand-edied digital images with print release delivered in a flash drive, pre-session consultation, wardrobe styling, proof prints, and a custom order fulfillment appointment.  CLICK HERE TO SCHEDULE YOUR SESSION TODAY.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” ~Psalm 139:13

I love maternity sessions because we are celebrating the joy of a new life God has created in the mother’s womb, and the connection between the mom and her child before she/he is born, is just precious! I captured this gorgeous mom’s baby bump pictures in the field during sunset hours. Her beauty, under the soft and golden light, just radiated in every image. And the joy of expecting your second baby (especially this time you’re having a baby girl!) is elegantly portrayed in her session.

“She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” ~Proverbs 31:25

I have to say, this gorgeous mom is so well prepared and very organized. She booked her mini maternity + newborn session with me very early on, even before she was showing. She was hosting a Pinterest-worthy baby shower the day after her maternity session. And she was already transitioning her older child out from the nursery.

I just can’t wait to meet her and her family again with her little angel in a few weeks for her newborn session!

Mamas, whether working full-time or staying at home, are the most devoted, loving, and patient persons in the world. We are the ones who don’t mind giving up our time, energy, dream, or even career in order to nurture the little humans God entrusted in our hands. We never ask for anything in turn, and just a smile on our child’s face can constantly melt our heart.

As we’re approaching May and the Mother’s Day, I would like to use this opportunity to honor moms who have been working so hard for their family behind the scene, who are also the historians of the family, always ready with a phone in their hands to capture special moments and every day memories. Our Mommy & Me sessions are the perfect Mother’s Day gifts for all the lovely mamas, so that you can get in front of the camera with your little ones, and have your memories best captured in simple, elegant, and authentic portraits.

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.
