Merry & Bright | Mini Holiday Session | Houston Family Photographer

If you don’t already know yet, I have a special love and passion for newborns. The endless joy that a new baby can bring to a family is indescribable. I’m so glad to conclude my mini holiday session series with the Bright Family, who traveled extra miles from Pasadena, TX to take their family portraits. Dad is a professional basketball player so it was extremely difficult for us to work with both of our busy schedules. But we finally met and had these precious portraits taken for their baby’s first Christmas. You simply can feel their joy and excitement for their newborn baby girl!

Thank you all for your love and support for this year’s mini holiday sessions. I’m excited to meet your family again! Merry Christmas!!

Everyday Enthusiastic | Mini Holiday Session | Houston Family Photographer

As an artist, I would always like to surround myself with other creative friends to get inspired, although there aren’t too many around me. Last month, I was blessed to meet Meredith, blogger of Everyday Enthusiastic, whose family just recently moved to Houston. In the midst of unpacking, decorating her new house, writing blog posts while caring for her little ones, she planned to get some family portraits done as well.

If you have more than one child, you know how difficult it is to get all of them smile for the camera. Meredith kept reminding me that if she could have just one good picture from the entire session, she would be happy. But the session was so much fun and relaxing that we ended up with not just one, but a bunch of  lovely portraits of this gorgeous family! I can’t to see Meredith’s new home decorated with her family portraits on the blog!!

Soft Blue and Tan Family + First Birthday Session | Houston Family Photographer

One-year-old is such a fun age to photograph. This is when babies begin walking, or may be running.

Mom booked an outdoor family session for his son’s first birthday. She brought this giant balloon, a lovely quilt, and some cute toys and books to the session. However, Baby Henry didn’t want to spend a minute sitting down on this beautiful setup. Instead, he was running and dancing around and having so much fun with himself.

Until we brought out the birthday cup cake, he suddenly stopped exploring and was willing to sit down on the quilt and enjoy his cake! Mom and Dad were so relieved and excited that we finally got some birthday portraits we’d planned out. And it’s just fun to watch Henry’s expression as he tasted the first cake in his life!!

As the sun set, we concluded our session with some emotional family portraits, snuggles, kisses, and a job well done for all of us.

Newborn Bright and Timeless Session | Houston Newborn Photographer

As the weather gets chilly and gloomy outside, I’m more than happy to retreat to my warm and cozy studio to work more on newborn and baby sessions.

Mom loves bright, timeless, and elegant style. During our pre-session meeting, we talked about having a lot of cream white in her baby girl’s newborn session, with a hint of soft pink and light grey. She especially loves my chunky wool blanket and everything lace. I styled her session with cream white of different textures, and of course, my huge selection of baby girl tiebacks.

When it comes to posing, I’m a naturalist and minimalist, which worked great for Lucy, since she didn’t really like to be posed (or even moved around!) I usually do a tushie-up pose for curve bench shoots, but she decided to pose for herself, and I just let her be herself.

To me, newborn sessions are not about getting the most perfect pose or set-up. Rather, it’s about portraying the baby’s unique personalities, and the authentic connection with her beloved family. And this time, we even had her lovely Grandma in the shoot, whose excitement for her newborn grand baby just couldn’t be contained!

Expecting Joy | Mini Holiday Session | Houston Family Photographer

Are you loving this chilly weather? It’s finally feeling more like Christmas when I can bundle up my kids with thick jackets and cozy scarfs.

While others are busy with shopping and party planning, Christmas is a time of rest and peace at our house. As we’re concluding 2016 in less than a month, why don’t we take a moment to pause and make a What Brings You Joy List? For me, it’s family, kids, good health, great clients… and last but not least, the gift of Jesus.

What brings you more joy than expecting the arrival of your second baby at Christmas? I’m in love with this family’s holiday session. Every image is portraying the expecting joy of a new life, a new beginning. This is going to be their most memorable Christmas and I can’t be more excited for them!

How about you? What brings you joy this Christmas?
