Houston Newborn Photography | A big surprise!

Sometime in March, I received a phone call from someone who had just seen Skye’s maternity session and loved it! It turns out that she was interested in Houston newborn photography because she was planning on gifting a maternity and newborn session to her daughter! Let me tell you, it is SO fun to be part of a surprise like that! The new grandma was going to surprise daughter with the gift at her baby shower. Isn’t that just the sweetest gift? Start dropping hints ladies! I can keep a secret. Ha!

The Maternity Session

Krissa’s maternity session was just beautiful. We went to one of my favorite locations in Montgomery, TX, which is Fernland! It is a historical park with several old homes. My favorite spot is the beautiful White House at the front of the park!

The Newborn Session- Houston Newborn Photography

Baby Hartley’s newborn session came and I was so excited to meet this princess! I had already seen pictures and let me tell you– she is her mama’s twin!

Before I share these, I want you to know that I am not in the business of making babies cry. In fact, I go out of my way to soothe babies and make sure they are comfortable, full, and happy! That said, Hartley was not a fan of being put down at all. I wrapped her up, had her nice and happy, but within 10 seconds of me shooting, she would make this adorable little fuss face. Needless to say, her individual shots were super duper fast because I knew that I only had seconds! I did manage to catch just one fuss face and I just think it’s the cutest thing ever! Sometimes, you just have to remember who they really are! And Miss Hartley? Well, she likes to be snuggled! How dare you put her down!

Secretly, I think I love her little fuss face because I have had three “don’t you dare put me down” babies! That just means they’re extra snuggly! I think about those first few weeks when all you can do is snuggle, feed, and sleep and think how lucky we are to be blessed with such a sweet task!

Studio Newborn FAQs

Mamas, let’s talk about studio newborn sessions! Studio newborn sessions are my most popular sessions! For pricing information and details on what your session includes, head over to my newborn page!

Posed newborn boy with head on chin

I’m due in October! How do I schedule a session if we don’t know when the baby will arrive?

This is the question most moms ask! Instead of scheduling a specific date, I will simply write your due date on my calendar. I reserve a set number of due dates each month. We won’t actually schedule your session until the baby arrives! Once baby is here, we will get you scheduled as soon as possible!

How old should my baby be for a studio newborn session?

I prefer to photograph my newborns in the studio around 6-12 days old. I have found that to be the best age for getting the perfect sleepy poses!

Can I bring siblings to the studio after the baby is finished instead of coming together?

Yes! I actually encourage moms to bring the baby to the studio first. Then, dads can come with the younger siblings! This way we get the baby done quickly and can get started on the family portion with no wait time for little ones!

What should I bring?

I supply everything we need for your newborn session! All bows, props, furs, and swaddles are included! The only thing you should bring is what you normally carry in your diaper bag like diapers, a spare blanket, and a pacifier if you’re using one!

For moms, if you are trying on my dresses, a nude fitted slip is a good idea! I do have a few gorgeous lace dresses that need them!

What should we wear?

Moms, I encourage you to choose something to wear from my studio wardrobe! I have a gorgeous collection of studio dresses that are the perfect colors, texture, and length for your session. Each dress was chosen because it is both flattering and will photograph beautifully! You’re welcome to set up an appointment before your session to try on the dresses!

And Baby Makes Four- Newborn Studio in The Woodlands

I want you guys to meet this little guy with the cutest cheeks I’ve ever seen! This sweet mama met me at my newborn studio in The Woodlands early one morning for their newborn session. We started the morning with a little pampering from my friend Amy, who is a local hair and make-up artist! {I’m going to insert my own mama/photographer “wisdom” here. Y’all. I’m now a mom of three and I completely believe in doing whatever you can to make things easier! Definitely hire help! You deserve it and you’ll feel AMAZING for your session!} While Amy was working with Mama, baby J and I got started on the bean bag! (In case you’re wondering, most of my posing happens on a cozy bean bag made for newborn photographers!)

By the time I was finished posing, and mama was finished getting ready, Daddy and big sister had arrived for the family session! For this session, mama brought her own gorgeous Free People dress that I’m still so in love with!

Are you ready for a little secret? Most of the time when you see my sibling images, there was a bribe involved. If I had to throw out a percentage it would be something like, oh, I don’t know, 99.9%. So mamas, bring a snack, bring candy, bring a toy! Whatever it takes, we’ll make it happen! 🙂

Newborn sessions have my whole heart! They’re my speciality because this phase of my life is absolutely my favorite! I’d love to chat with you about booking your session at my newborn studio in The Woodlands! Head over to my contact page to send me a message! I’m booking in to the summer months for newborns!

A Beautiful Girl- Montgomery TX Newborn Photographer

A Beautiful Girl

Montgomery TX Newborn Photographer

Lifestyle newborn sessions are truly such a beautiful way to celebrate bringing home your new baby. There’s nothing better than being in your own home and nursery! I love being a Montgomery TX newborn photographer so that I can showcase all that fresh love for you. First babies are

“If I am thinking correctly,” said Pooh, “a new baby is probably, undoubtedly the grandest gift that could ever be.”

When I see parents with their first baby, I’m so easily reminded of the joys of becoming a parent! Those first days days, weeks, and months are so much fun! They say that moms glow when they are pregnant, but I think the real magic happens when they meet that sweet baby for the first time! Nothing beats the joy of becoming a mom/dad!

The Nursery

Montgomery TX Newborn Photographer

When booking a lifestyle session, it’s a good idea to think about the light  and decor in your home. Do you have large windows? Does your home get a lot of natural light?  Did you decorate a nursery? Do you love your home decor? If you can answer yes to those questions, then a lifestyle session is perfect for you! The details of your nursery may not always be the same, but if we capture that now, you’ll hav the memories forever!

Toddlers and Twins- The Woodlands Fresh 48

Toddlers and Twins

The Woodlands Fresh 48 (Just Born Session)

May has been the month of twins here in The Woodlands! I have three sets of twins on my schedule for this month which is very unusual! I can’t wait to show you all of the cuteness that is coming your way!

These sweet girls were born at the Houston Methodist- The Woodlands Hospital. I love my Fresh 48s at the Methodist hospital  because the windows are huge! They really light up the room ad give my clients a bright and airy look! Fresh 48 portraits can really vary in their appearance based on the available light in your hospital room.

Becoming a sibling can sometimes to be hard for toddlers. They are suddenly not the baby anymore, and mama is holding this bundle of blankets a LOT. What in the world is happening? Sometimes, when I arrive, the older siblings are still getting used to the idea of having a new baby. Other times, they are meeting the baby(ies) for the first time and completely smitten! Either way, I come prepared with tricks up my sleeve to help you and your toddler engage with the new baby!

Woodlands Fresh 48

Joy and love shine in your Woodlands Fresh 48 session. There is nothing like welcoming a new baby into the world! I just love capturing that for families to treasure forever. Albums and mini-books are one of my favorite ways to display those memories!

Newborn Photography Comparison– Conroe Newborn Photographer

 

A Newborn Photography Comparison

Conroe Newborn Photographer

 

If you are a new mom looking for a Conroe newborn photographer, you may have noticed that there are different types of photography out there! I happen to be one who loves all of them! When my two boys were born, I really wanted everything! I love the magic of birth, the joy new life in the hospital, that first family portrait, and of course those beautiful newborn poses! It is important to me to be that photographer to my clients! Let me show you what the different styles look like with AHP!

Birth Photography

Conroe Newborn PhotographerConroe Newborn Photographer

Birth photography is such a beautiful thing! These sessions are all about the journey to meet your new little love. Birth photography is very documentary in nature. I’m there to document your birth story so that you will have the memories forever. Some of my favorite photographs from births are the reactions of moms meeting their new baby! Birth images are delivered in a slide show of all your favorite photos!

Fresh 48 (Hospital Portraits)

Conroe Newborn PhotographerConroe Newborn Photographer

 

Hospital days seem long and tiresome, but boy do they go quickly! These sessions are all about photographing you in the hospital as a new family! Like birth, these sessions are usually a little more documentary in nature than my in-home lifestyle sessions. Read more about Fresh 48s on my blog here!

The Essentials

Conroe Newborn Photographer

I saved your favorite two for last because they are the essential sessions. These are the sessions that you see most often and are the most requested! Most of my clients combine these two sessions, but they may also be booked individually if one fits your family more than the other!

Lifestyle Newborn Portraits

Conroe Newborn PhotographerConroe Newborn PhotographerConroe Newborn photographer

Lifestyle newborn portraits are in-home sessions. These are just like family sessions, but they focus a little more on your sweet baby. Lifestyle sessions include the whole family as well as sibling portraits and the baby alone. I like to use your master bedroom, living areas, and the nursery if you have one. Lifestyle sessions do not include the newborn poses that you see below in the studio portion. Lifestyle newborn images are typically on your bed, their crib, or their rocker. For more examples, see this post

Curious what to wear to your lifestyle newborn session? Read more here!

Studio Newborn Portraits

Conroe Newborn Photographer

Studio newborn sessions are all about your new baby and their gorgeous features! I start each session with prop poses like buckets and boxes. Then we move to the bean bag for blanket poses seen above. These sessions also include the whole family! The family portraits are more posed portraits than what you will see in my lifestyle sessions.  Each session takes place in my studio in Montgomery, TX. For more about studio sessions, follow this link!

I hope that this comparison helps you to see the full range of newborn photography offered by AHP! Contact me here to schedule your newborn session today!

What to Wear- The Woodlands Newborn Photographer

What to Wear

The Woodlands Newborn Photographer

Newborn Edition

Hey Y’all! I know that you loved my previous what to wear post, so let’s talk about what to wear for my newborn clients!

The Woodlands Newborn Photographer

Colors

Newborn sessions are a bit unique because they are in your home. We have to consider the colors in your home so that your outfits coordinate well.  I always recommend neutral colors because they are timeless and classic. You will look back on your newborn photographs many times! I want you to look back and still think that you look great! Neutral and pastel colors are perfect for that. Try to avoid any bold or bright colors, but soft florals are gorgeous!


Texture

Texture is the key to interest and variation in your clothing. Mamas, I highly recommend a loose fitting, flowy dress. Maxi dresses are my top choice! I have found that flowy garments are actually very flattering to most body types, but especially a postpartum mama.  Lace, linen, ruffles, and embroidery are the perfect pops of texture!  Pink Blush,  Fillyboo, and Alter’D State have great options with beautiful texture and flow.

Also, I really challenge you to find something for Dad to wear that has texture to it! A nice sweater would look great and be comfortable!

Siblings

The Woodlands Newborn Photographer

Check out those adorable suspenders! Don’t you just love how cute they look on him?

Siblings are so much fun to dress, but resist the temptation to have everyone perfectly matching. The goal is actually to complement each other. I’m in love with boutique children’s clothing. The quality can’t be beat! Check out these favorites and email me for a complete and up to date list!

Joy Marie

Standard of Grace Shop

Miss Rose Sister Violet

I’m a big fan of supporting small businesses, and I try to  shop small when I can. However, sometimes I know we need to find something quick!  Boys clothing is also a bit harder to find! Gap Kids usually carries classic outfits for all ages as well as great colors. They are one of my top choices for children’s clothes!  Old Navy also has great clothing for kids AND great prices! If you are shopping in the spring, they have great pastel colors!

 

The Baby

The Woodlands Newborn Photographer

Keep it simple! I know that probably sounds odd, but your baby will look great and be comfortable in a simple plain onesie! Monica + Andy has fantastic newborn clothing for your little one! They have everything from onesies to rompers!  Again, Baby Gap has great hats, onesies, and simple footie outfits. They almost always have a great selection of them in the stores, too!

Don’t forget a cute hat! Check out Knots baby hats!  They’re absolutely precious to use for a couple shots of your little one!

Email me ANYTIME!

I’m always available to help clients put together the perfect look for the family portraits! Give me a call or send me an email and we can work together to find the best fit for you!

AHP is a The Woodlands Newborn Photographer serving the areas of The Woodlands, Magnolia, Montgomery, and Conroe. If you are interested in booking a newborn session, get in touch here! I am currently booking June-September newborns!

Boom! Do you see all of those beautiful faces? I’m sad that I couldn’t fit everyone in the grid! I had FIFTY SEVEN amazing clients! That is fifty seven families who called me to photograph their newborn, family, milestone, and birth! I couldn’t be more honored than I am today.

The end of the year is a time for reflection and planning. I’ve been reminiscing about all of these sessions and how much fun we had!

In just five short months, there were thirty eight family sessions, nineteen newborns (this includes birth, hospital, studio, and lifestyle portraits), and two cake smashes! I can’t wait to see what those numbers will look like with a full year under my belt! 2017 is officially the year to beat!

Among the Trees- The Woodlands Family Photography

Among the Trees- The Woodlands  Family Photography

It’s finally fall and that means it’s busy season for photographers! Just last week, I photographed this gorgeous family in a new location. There are two sides the park I frequent often. Most of my families prefer the southern side with beautiful hiking trails, a pond, and tons of room to run. This family chose something new! I’m so glad they did because I fell in love with these gorgeous trees!  We ventured over to the northern side of WG Jones in The Woodlands, TX. This park is full of reforested trees that photograph beautifully! The best part is we can venture far back, or stay close to the front!

These outfits are fantastic, also! Mama did a fabulous job of putting them together! I’m a big fan of maroon outdoors. I especially love how great they look together, but they aren’t overly matchy. The floral romper, mauve dress, and navy shirt are perfect for the kids! She has patterns and textures that look wonderful together!

Locations in Family Portraits

Ideas for The Woodlands Family Photography

Locations in family photography can change the vibe of your finished product. Choose your location wisely! Think about what you would like on your walls. Do you like the urban look of the buildings and colors downtown? Are you a fan of Christmas tree lights on The Woodlands Waterway? Do you prefer your own home? (More about this in another blog post, but you can do SO much at home! Think about family traditions, jumping on the bed, etc!) Do you like rustic old barns, the beach? The options are endless for clients who book a Signature session! I personally am wanting to take my own family for some fun downtown! I can’t wait to share!

Newborn Photography

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!
