I had the pleasure of photographing this couple's maternity shoot in early April, before shelter-in-place began. We practiced social distancing and successfully captured their first pregnancy among the bluebonnets.
A few months later the shelter-in-place was lifted and businesses were reopening in time for me to photograph their little girl's newborn photos in their home. In fact, I visited their home twice to take photos of their first baby, Sophia. This girl is going to be showered with love.
The first session took place a few weeks after she was born. The second session took place when she was nearly one month old. She had already grown, had more hair, was more awake, and was very wiggly. But she was still a sleepy baby who loved being held in her parents' arms.
I love seeing how people decorate their child's nurseries. Each family has their own style for their little one and many choose a theme for the room. So far everyone's chosen neutral colors with colorful accents, which I'm a huge fan of since its very practical. Once they hit pre-teen and teenage years they'll want something different anyways, so I like it from a practical standpoint. But all the accents and decor in these rooms are SO CUTE.
Baby Sophia has lots of flowers, pink, and -my favorite- animals. She has a rocking unicorn! (My rocking horse was made of wood, not nearly as fun as this one). The Koala curtain ties are both adorable and genius! I like to take a few pictures of the room's details before a session begins, so if you ever want photos of something in particular, let me know. Here, it was all of her bows & headbands. She
