I had the true pleasure a few weeks ago of teaching all about newborn photography at the Work of Heart Sweet Light Collective workshop in Round Top, TX. Teaching at this workshop was such an honor, surrounded by so many talented artists. Our little model was Adeline, she could not have been more perfect in every way. She snoozed away while everyone oooo’d and aaaa’d over how precious she was. I look forward to another upcoming workshop in Houston, TX in August!

I always get so excited when my clients book a watch me grow package because I get to see their family grow through the year, I get to be part of their journey and their story for a brief time. It all starts here, with this beautiful Momma and her equally beautiful baby bump. Planning this session was so fun, there where so many different ideas floating around and although it took some time to settle on exactly what we where going to do I am so happy with the results and what we chose to do.

My amazing friend at The Porcelain Teacup was the creator of this beautiful gown. I told her what we where planning and that I wanted a bright red dress to make Mom really pop and the whole theme come together and she created the perfect dress.

I can’t wait for our newborn session and to meet this precious baby boy and his big brother!
