Highland Village Newborn Session

Baby Boy with Neutral Colors

I photographed a newborn session up in Highland Village a few weeks ago. I packed up my car with all of my newborn items that I had selected. If you’ve had a newborn session with me, you know that I bring a LOT of stuff! Mom didn’t have any specific colors or themes, so I got to design everything. I had selected lots of neutral colors for her little boy’s session. They ended up matching the decor in her home pretty well!

Baby With Props

I typically start my sessions with some newborn prop images. A bucket, bed, or bowl can add some beautiful variety to them! These are always done with baby’s safety in mind first and foremost. I will often ask mom or dad to have a hand on their baby if I need to switch lenses or adjust lighting. If you’ve ever seen the video of a newborn crawling up mommas chest to get food, you would know that even babies can make sudden and large movements. Safety first, always!

Beanbag Portraits

Once my prop photos have been taken, I move on to my beanbag work. These are where I get all of those beautiful detail images- eyelashes, fingers, toes, back rolls. They are some of my favorites, and add something extra special to your album. I also get lots of different poses, with baby curled up and laying out, wrapped, or in a cute little outfit.

Family Portraits

Family portraits are always important when I can get them. For this session, Mom and Grandmom were there, so we got a great three-generation portrait for them. This is such a special time to be able to capture everyone! You never know what might happen in the future, which is why I always like to take advantage of this time and get those family portraits. They are what will be cherished for a very long time!
