What’s New in the Studio? Newborn Photographer Montgomery, TX

What’s New in the Studio?

Newborn Photographer Montgomery, TX

Guys! I have some fun things that have arrived in the studio recently and thought I’d share! If you have followed me long, you know that I have two boys. Did you know that I book more GIRL newborns than boys?! So, here I am shopping for pinks, florals, and BOWS! Give me all the bows, y’all! It’s so much fun!

I’ve been adding to my prop collection slowly but surely! You can expect to see updates from time to time with more new additions!  Props like bows, hats, wraps, and bonnets, are always included in my studio newborn sessions! Also included are all of my bowls, buckets, fabrics, and layers!

My favorite prop vendors are all represented here! Luneberry, and SoBella, are some of my most frequented shops that I adore! Harley Mae and Ali + Luna are newer to me, but I’m really loving them so far! I can’t wait to get these on some new babies this spring.

Aimee Hamilton is a Newborn Photographer in Montgomery, TX. AHP offers Fresh 48, lifestyle, and studio newborn photography in The Woodlands, Conroe, Montgomery, Magnolia, Spring, and Cypress, TX. I encourage parents to pair sessions together for a completely custom package.

What is a Lifestyle Newborn Session? Conroe Newborn Photographer

What is a Lifestyle Newborn Session?

Conroe Newborn Photographer

Aimee Hamilton is a Conroe newborn photographer offering 3 different types of newborn photography! That can be a lot to choose from, so let’s take a look at the specifics!

A lifestyle newborn session with AHP is playful, organic, and tender. I am there to focus on relationships and documenting your new family.  These sessions are a lot like my normal family sessions, but they are always in the comfort of your own home! They also feature little tiny humans! One of the things I love most about lifestyle newborn sessions is that as your baby grows, they will always get to see the home they came home to!

Let There be Light

Conroe Newborn Photographer

I love to showcase the baby’s nursery, your master bedroom, and any spaces with pockets of beautiful lighting. When I come into your home, the first thing I look for is light! Then, we wait for the moments to unfold! I will help you guide your family, but I also want you to be you! In some sessions, that means escaping toddlers. In other sessions, the toddlers are bringing us a bag full of cheerios! Either way, its a low pressure, real life, kind of session!

The Star of the Show

And of course, there is always room for photographing your new baby alone! For these shots, I use your master bed, the crib, bassinet, rocking chair, just anything that you would use for baby in your everyday life! In a lifestyle session, you will not see props like buckets and bowls, but I do bring wraps, bonnets, and hats if moms are interested!

*Bonus*

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen this, but it’s worth sharing again! These little hats are ADORABLE! They are perfect for adding a little fun into your portraits! A personalized hat would be so cute in your baby’s session.  Be sure to tell her I sent you!

4 Tips to Make your Fresh 48 Swoon Worthy-The Woodlands Hospital Newborn Photography

4 Tips to Make your Fresh 48 Swoon Worthy-

The Woodlands Hospital Newborn Photography

1. Let the session be more documentary in nature. 

You just had a baby. You’re SO in love! I want to focus on that! This is the type of session that should be a little more raw and tender. I want to photograph who you really are, to help you remember this time. Your baby (and family) will be changing so quickly that it all becomes a blur! I’m there to capture you in the moment.  Fresh 48 Sessions are perfect for introducing siblings and capturing details of your beautiful new baby!  The moments following are all unscripted, unposed, and raw. This first one is the reason I say be open to documentary photography.  This is the moment that she found she has a new baby sister!

The Woodlands hospital newborn photographyThe Woodlands hospital newborn photographyThe Woodlands hospital newborn photographyThe Woodlands hospital newborn photography2. Wear something that you are comfortable in! 

I already said it once, but you just had a baby! This is not a perfect hair and make-up kind of photoshoot. Find something comfortable that you love and rock the mom bun! You know want to! One of my favorite places for buying clothing for the hospital is Pink Blush. You will find beautiful robes to throw on over your PJs!

 3. Set your expectations low for siblings. 

When you scroll through Facebook, you will find one million and one sibling portraits. The siblings are usually smiling and kissing their new baby, right? I’m here to tell you, that is NOT always the case. And in many cases, its just not the case at all! My own darling boy was my first experience with a sibling not falling madly in love with a new baby. It broke my mama heart! I know it’s tough! However, the more pressure we put on them, the harder it becomes for them. I have tricks up my sleeve to help siblings engage with the new baby naturally, but sometimes, we have to be realistic and know their world has just dramatically changed. I find it to be most questionable with siblings under 2. Whatever happens, it’s still beautiful because its part of your story!

4. Have fun with Swaddles and Accessories!

First and foremost, this is a hospital/just born session. I believe its important to see the hospital t-shirt and blanket that is standard of all new baby’s. It’s like a right of passage. Those are usually my favorite shots! Once we have those shots, have a little dun with it!

Check out The Beaufort Bonnet Company & The Posh Peanut for cute accessories! Both of these shops have super cute swaddles for your hospital photoshoot! I’m in love with these bow swaddles that I was introduced to recently! I’m a girl who loves a good neutral, but for my girls, I can’t resist a florals!

The Woodlands Newborn Photography

Bonus time! 

I thought I’d throw in a little bonus for you guys! I’ve told this story on my blog before, but its worth telling again for anyone new! My oldest was born on a Saturday morning in May, which happened to be the morning before Mother’s Day. He spent the first few hours in the NICU and I was a mess. It’s hard to see your baby in the NICU! That also meant that my photographer wasn’t able to make it, because I absolutely wasn’t asking her to spend her Mother’s Day in the hospital with us. Do you know what she did? She came. She also took my favorite pictures ever that day! These are some of my MOST treasured photographs! Chani, you are still my hero! Thank you, thank you!

The Woodlands Hospital Newborn Photography is one of my favorite sessions to shoot! I am available for all hospitals in The Woodlands, TX as well as Conroe, Tomball, Cypress, and Katy. Get in touch with me here for your Fresh 48 or newborn session! If you are having a home birth or birth center birth, a Fresh 48 can still be for you!

Behind the Scenes of a Newborn Session- Newborn Photographer Montgomery, TX

All About Studio Newborn Sessions:

Behind the scenes

Newborn Photographer Montgomery, TX

Newborn Photographer Montgomery, TX

As a mom, newborn portraits were high on my priority list. Preserving memories is important to me. When my youngest son was born, I had a really hard time finding a photographer who offered both lifestyle newborn sessions, and posed newborns. I have made it my mission to be a that newborn photographer! My newborn sessions are packaged separately, but are actually designed to be paired together! I currently offer Fresh 48s, Lifestyle, and Studio newborn packages.

I’m excited to introduce take you behind the scenes a bit today! My studio newborn sessions are simple sessions for those adorable newborn poses that everyone loves! This session can be for your newborn alone or you may also choose to bring siblings along! However, my studio is a small space. I encourage you to use a lifestyle session for your family portraits. If you book a lifestyle session, or live farther than you’d like to drive, I can pack up my studio and set up in your home! I’m all about doing what is best for your family!

Props

Most of my sessions will start here! When you arrive, you will walk into a room set up for props and ready to go! The heat will be roaring and my shusher will be up loud. It’s an environment your baby will love! I typically set up 2-3 prop for each session. Before your session, I send a questionnaire to guide my styling choices. I want the colors we choose here to match your home and nursery.

Newborn Photographer Montgomery, TX Newborn Photographer Montgomery, TX

The baby shusher is a must have for every session! I turn it up nice and loud and the babies love it! I haven’t been keeping track, but I would bet that about 75% of my parents have either ordered or downloaded the app by the time they leave their session! It makes me giggle every time a new parent buys one! It’s magical for getting a new baby to sleep!

The Bean Bag

Every photographer has their favorites pieces of a session. The bean bag is my favorite. This is where we get the potato sack, froggy, and naked baby poses. I love the versatility of the beanbag and the various looks we can achieve!

This pose, called the potato sack, is usually the first one we try! It’s an easy one that almost all of my newborns love! A cozy wrap is their happy place!

Newborn Timeline

Studio newborn sessions are most successful between 6 and 13 days of age. I encourage all parents to book your session well in advance to guarantee yourself a spot on my calendar. When your baby arrives, we will schedule an official date.

Take a sneak peek at my newborn packages here! For more details, or to book your session, contact me here! I am currently scheduling April- July newborns!

Baby Rhett

Aimee Hamilton is a Magnolia, TX newborn photographer offering hospital, lifestyle and posed studio newborn sessions. I love starting my morning off right by getting to snuggle a brand new baby! Last Sunday was one of those special treats! I have been looking forward to this session because the baby shares a name with my youngest! How cute is that!

When I arrived, I began setting up my {HEAPS} of equipment to get us ready for a lifestyle and posed session. I had a sweet little helper there to give me an extra hand while I worked.  She told me all about her new baby brother, Rhett! Finally she said, “You know, we call him baby Rhett.” Her face lit up when I told her that we call my Rhett the same thing!

Magnolia, TX  Newborn Photography

Newborn photography is quickly becoming my jam. I can feel myself starting to settle into a good groove of booking newborns and absolutely loving what I do! It is truly an honor to be called to photograph a new life. New babies are such a blessing. I love how much is in the air at newborn sessions. Everyone is {usually} so happy and so in love! That love really shows in photographs.

Anything that involves a “posed” newborn with wraps and props, I call a studio newborn session. I have wraps, props, a clothing to make your sweet baby look their absolute best. I also work with parents to stick within a color scheme that matches their vision for their baby.

Congratulations to Baby Rhett and his family! You guys hit the jack pot with that sweet boy!

Sweet Baby Kenna

Montgomery, TX Newborn Photographer

 

Oh sweet squishy newborns! I’m quickly finding myself settling into a niche and it is ALL things newborn! Anytime a new mama contacts me, I tell them how I honored I am that they reached out to me. The newborn phase passes in the blink of an eye. As a mama, these photos were the most important to me.  I want to remember every little detail of their face, right down to their toes. I also want that for every baby that comes in front of my lens.

Speaking of toes… Would you believe that this was a last minute shot? Mom and I were just talking as I was cleaning up when I laid eyes on those precious toes in mama’s arms! If I didn’t already have a baby, I would totally have baby fever about now!

Montgomery, TX Newborn Photographer

This sweet girl was so much fun! She was definitely a newborn photographer’s dream! She slept through everything, woke for a minute to have a quick sip of milk and slept for the rest of the time! I keep my office a toasty temperature so that my littlest clients are comfortable. Just add a little shushing noise & she was totally out! (Mama’s if you haven’t tried it, this little thing is gem! I highly recommend it!)

This sweet girl’s mama asked for portraits for Christmas, her Daddy (a marine!), & A&M (not shown). One of my favorite things about being a newborn photographer is making a parent’s visions come to life! I love getting those phone calls and chatting about colors, etc!

Happy Birthday Marine Corp!

and

Thank you Veterans!

These precious photos are JUST in time for the Marine Corps’ birthday AND Veteran’s Day! Yesterday I realized that over half of my newborns so far have been military families! This sweet girl was the first to get to do something a little special for her Daddy, but I’m hoping that there will be more to come! I have visions in my head that I’m dying to try. I would love a shoot with Daddy holding his new love in uniform!

Most of you know by now that I am a boy mama. In my house, there are tons of toy cars, trains, camo, and outdoor equipment. There is not one single floral romper, dress,  bow, or girly swaddle. I love dressing up my boys and making them look trendy. There’s just nothing like a good dress and bow combo! I had so much fun shopping for her!  I will admit that if I was a girl mama, we would be broke because I would have ten thousand bows!

Lifestyle Newborn Photography

This family was the perfect lifestyle newborn session. They have a sweet 21 month old and a new baby girl. We focused on family portraits in their master bedroom. Their beautiful pink nursery was another perfect room to showcase their new love! We work so hard on those nurseries! Lifestyle portraits are a great time to show them off!

A Birth Story

Birth Photography The Woodlands

 

If you’ve worked with me before, you’ve probably heard me say what an honor it is to be chosen to photograph your family. It’s so true! I feel so blessed every time I put another family in front of my lens whether its for a family session or celebrating a new baby with an in-home session.

This time, I was invited to share in another family’s most joyous moment– the birth of their baby. Even more exciting, the family was waiting for delivery day to find out the gender! To a photographer, capturing that moment is a dream!  Being there to capture one of life’s greatest blessings for this family was truly a privilege that I am excited to share!

A Sunday Afternoon

On Sunday afternoon, I was just arriving home from a Fresh 48 shoot when I got a text from Mama H. She was having some contractions, but nothing that seemed serious yet. I went ahead and packed my bag with all of my supplies and put it in the car *just* in case she needed me. The day went on with no progress, but I told my husband that I felt like it was still going to be the day!

At midnight, I put my keys and purse near the door and head off to bed.  At 12:30, the phone rang! I’m not sure that I’ve ever answered the phone that late with such excitement. It was baby time!

Birth Photography The WoodlandsAt the hospital, there was plenty of gender guessing while we waited. Each parent was expecting a different gender, but the Grandma’s were both Team Girl.  The next morning, the family got to surprise the older siblings, too! That reaction was priceless! The rest of the story is too good to share in words, you have to see it yourself!

 

****Don’t scroll too far or you’ll spoil the surprise!****

 

 

 

 

 

And… Her first newborn sneak Peek!

What fun is shooting a birth without newborn photos to follow? This beauty is going to be one well documented sweetie! She’s coming back for their fall family portraits in October!

Beautiful Babies: Montgomery, TX Fresh 48

Beautiful Babies: A Montgomery, TX Newborn Fresh 48

From the Beginning!

Flashback to May 2015. My maternity shoot with the fantastic, Chani Gunn ,was cancelled due to a snow storm during spring break in Dallas. We decided that it would be best to switch my session to a Fresh 48. In all honesty, I wasn’t convinced that I would love photographs so soon after birth. The time finally came for Tripp to make his debut. He ended up in the NICU which again stalled our pictures. I was a brand new mom and heartbroken over the NICU stay. Truthfully, I was a hot mess!

As soon as he was released, I called Chani and said we would have to do something different. It was Mother’s Day 2015 and I didn’t want to take her away from her family. When she insisted on coming anyway, I was blown away. I will forever be grateful for her AND those photos that I wasn’t sure about. To this day, they are some of my absolute favorites of Tripp and our new family! She captured our little angel in a way that I will cherish forever!

I encourage all new moms to consider a Fresh 48 session. A brand new baby brings so much joy, love, and life to a room. When you photograph that, you are capturing that moment and bottling it up forever. Just like the intoxicating smell of a new baby, that hospital time goes way too fast! A fresh 48 is meant to document new love with very little guidance from me. I’m there to capture life as it is. I’m looking for mom snuggling her new baby, the first time siblings meet,  a kiss from dad, and all the baby details that we lose too quickly! Tiny toes, fresh umbilical cords, chubby cheeks, and wrinkly hands are all part of the hospital glory!

A Montgomery, TX Fresh 48

We moved to Montgomery in the summer of 2017. I met the most beautiful mama who also happens to be my neighbor! She had two beautiful little girls and one more on the way. I knew I had to had to photograph her family. This family is the type that you want to surround yourself with. They are always kind and gentle with one another. She is just an incredible mama! I am so honored that I was able to give them the gift of newborn memories forever!

This brand new baby girl is surrounded by love! It shines through these photos and will be there for them forever! But, you guys! You have to see it to believe it! Check out all the beauty in this family! Poor dad is going to be in trouble in about 12 years or so!

Lifestyle Newborn Photography

“Babies are like little suns that, in a magical way, bring warmth, happiness and light into our lives.” (Kartini Diapari-Oengider)

I can’t think of a better quote to describe sweet baby G. He was set to arrive just before Harvey landed. At the time, no one really knew what to expect. We were all preparing for flooding and possible power outages. Meanwhile, this gorgeous mama was heading to the hospital with her bags packed, ready to welcome a beautiful new baby boy! When I arrived to photograph the new family of four, he lived up to all of those things! He will always be their warmth, happiness, and light, even when the skies are turning gray.

Welcome to the world baby G! I know you are going to do big things!

Montgomery Lifestyle Newborn Photography

It’s safe to say that I am hooked on newborn photography. I’m so honored that I was given the opportunity to photograph this amazing family! I’ll take newborn snuggles any day!

Newborn Photography

I offer 2 session types of newborn portraits for my families with newborns: lifestyle with some newborn posing, and fresh 48. Each session can be scheduled independently, or we can create a custom package deal.

Lifestyle newborn sessions are relaxed in nature. These sessions are heavily focused on the family with the new baby. This session is also always done in your home. The nursery makes for gorgeous portraits! This session also includes posed newborns on blankets with wraps, hats, and tiny clothing.

Fresh 48 sessions are done in the hospital, usually the day after baby is born. These sessions are all about meeting the new baby and documenting new life!
