Turning one is such a big occasion! Mom and Dad made it through the first year and baby had explored, discovered and grown for 365 amazing days.

Every first birthday should be celebrated with a big cake, that you get all to yourself, don’t you think?

Happy first birthday, sweet Zara!

I’ll say this a million times, I’m sure – When a friend becomes a client, it’s the most amazing and daunting client relationship ever. The amount of trust and faith that is put into me as a photographer is huge for any session – but when a friend asks me to capture an important time in their life – it’s just a huge compliment. Whats funny, is that the majority of my clients DO become my friends!

Julie and I met at some private property just outside the San Antonio city limits to take advantage of some end of summer sun and a few lingering wildflowers.

If the warm sunset wasn’t enough – Julie absolutely GLOWED and with that precious baby bump she made for a radiant momma-to-be.

 

Baby Joshua has arrived and I can’t wait to share his beautiful session with you! He arrived with a fabulous head of blond hair – just like Julie’s!

Remember the show “Sister Sister”? Totally different “sister, sister” up there in the post title – but special none the less. Kimberly, the gorgeous Houston momma you’ll see below, and I met at Texas A&M when we lived across the dorm hall from each other. Well, one thing lead to another, Kimberly pledged Pi Phi and ended up my little sister. Two artistic, introverted extroverts, destined to be together. (I mean, it might not have been that dramatic – but I love her dearly!)

Now here we are, both mommas to girls, and she’s adding little angels to our “family” tree. Kimberly and Thomas graciously invited me into their out-of-Architectural-Digest home for their girls’ first photo shoot.

These two look like old pros – not first timers – and Jillian and Genevieve are obviously in amazingly capable hands.


The “in between” moments of in-home sessions – also known as the “lifestyle” part of the process – are hands down my favorite. Thomas needed to take a moment to snuggle and it resulted in one of the most endearing images from our session.

 

Thank you Kimbob – for entrusting this milestone to me and sharing your home and family. Your girls are beautiful babies and I know they’ll grow into even more beautiful girls! I can’t wait to write their RIFs and go to Bid Day with you in 18 years! Ring ching!

The best part about visiting families in their homes for newborn sessions is just that  – it’s their HOME. Their space. Their life and the people and things they love. No matter where they are in San Antonio, meeting a family at home for a newborn session is a fabulous thing.

Baby Theo’s beautiful home, in the heart of King William,  was a perfect backdrop for his newborn session – which he stayed awake the entire time for! Catching moments like this is one of the reasons I love including the whole family. A mother never forgets the feeling of holding her infant in her arms when they are that tiny. Then, looking back, even just a few months later, it’s hard to believe they were ever that tiny!

Aren’t baby yawns the best?

It’s time for backpacks, fresh crayons, the smell of new pencils and the endless possibilities of an empty notebook. For 1 in 5 San Antonio students, a new backpack or school supplies are the stuff  new school year dreams are made of. I remember (from my not too long ago classroom days) students arriving on the first day of school with a single spiral and box of pencils. So this year, our back to school mini sessions will include a school supply and backpack drive to help make this new school year awesome for a few more kids in San Antonio. Want to win your back to school mini? Head to Crib and Kids before August 14 and  drop off a donation of school supplies for a raffle entry and your session could be on me! Can’t wait? Snag your seat in class here - and if you win the giveaway your session fee will be refunded. Sessions include a 20 minute shoot appointment, an online gallery, 5 digital downloads and a Facebook image or timeline cover. Sessions are suitable for any kiddos who is independently sitting to eye rolling high schoolers (because you CAN!). More than 3 kiddos will need back to back sessions – call me if you have more than 3!

If ever there were two people who were destined to be the “cool” parents – it’s these two. Baby Theo doesn’t know it yet – but he’s in for a real treat.

They also happen to be two of my most favorite people on the whole planet. Bonus – we got to shoot in one of my most favorite San Antonio locations. I love the Southtown and King William districts for a different San Antonio vibe.

It’s easy to get caught up in the “high profile” spots around town and forget about these gems tucked in just a mile or two away. But then you get two like this… and it’s just a perfect fit.

The river is quiet and lush down here. The trees are so green, the tourists non existent and the water is beautiful without the high profile barges trolling back and forth.

Even cooler, baby Theo will grow up feeding the ducks along this stretch. He’ll probably get too close to the edge a time or two and he’ll take lots of cool evening walks here with his parents – making this spot and session even more special and memorable.

Thank you for inviting me into your ‘hood and allowing me to capture this amazing and special time for the three of you!

Any new mom can tell you that the first 24 to 48 hours after the baby are born are a blur. Some things stick out as clear and sharp as can be and some are only memories because they were documented or told and retold over and over. This cutie already has his mom’s smile and his dad’s dimples.
