Dallas Fort Worth Newborn Photographer | Family Photographer in Fort Worth »

Baby Ava is what we call an oldborn. She’s still very much a newborn to the regular world, but to the photography world she was a bit old to get all the newborn shots I can typically get in a session. I believe she was about one month old at this shoot, and she did great!

One good thing about older newborns are that their eyes can focus really well, any yellow tint has vanished and their eyes are open a lot more than two week olds. The tricky thing is, if they are awake, they will likely have to be tightly swaddled so arms and legs aren’t flailing around. This means less variety in poses, so it is a trade off for those beautiful eyes wide open pictures.

She feel asleep just long enough to get the very popular froggy pose.

Bentley has energy, charm and spunk, what little boys are made of! His mom is so fun and had lots of cool ideas for their Christmas shoot.

I really like the tiny bow tie that she dressed him in, the chambray shirt and moccasins couldn’t be cuter!

When photographing two year olds, anything can happen. Tantrums, running wild, screaming “no”, complete angel behavior, shyness, it’s really a mystery how the shoots will go until we are there. That being said, I know that sometimes I have to work super fast to get great shots before the 2 year old takes a turn for the worse. I think we got Bentley’s shoot all done in like thirty minutes which was about when he started to lose interest.

Bentley’s mom brought this wreath, blanket and pine cones.

This is one of my favorite Christmas shots of all time. The little tree on the tricycle was also Bentley’s mom’s doing.

The triplets needed to squeeze in one more shoot for Christmas cards. They were at a really hard age to photograph, but we made it work!

And here they are with their FOUR boys! I still can’t believe all three of the triplets were boys!

The two older daughters are absolutely beautiful and as sweet as can be. Photographing them is so easy and enjoyable!

Here is the whole group. I bet they have a pretty wild and crazy household with no shortage of excitement!

dallas-child-photographer copyAll the kids! Everyone grab a baby or two and smile! It was such a crack up seeing them pile out of their cars, yes cars, with a double stroller, a single stroller and a ton of baby gear. My hat is off to you Nikki!!

Mia and Asher, Asher and Mia, they go together like peanut butter and jelly! This mother son duo is fun, loving and has me cracking up every session.

The Grapevine Vintage Railroad was the perfect location for these two, Asher is all boy and the trains and train tracks were just right.

Her shoes, oh I love those! Asher and Mia are always on point with their outfits.

Asher’s personality is shy at first and then he gets into the shoot and then he gets tired of me. HA! I just adore him!

As most of you probably know, we book our newborn sessions way in advance. Sometimes 6 months or even more before the baby arrives, I have mom on the phone so excited about her newborn photo shoot!

Our moms or dads fill out a questionnaire describing their colors, style and vision they have for the session. We request images of the nursery to be sent to Lauren and any props or items they are bringing to the shoot. This helps us be fully prepared and have a plan ready.

When I was new to the newborn game, sessions could take up to 5 hours. Now, between having the most fantastic assistant and having a back up plan for our back up plan, the sessions are usually done in 2 to 2.5 hours. Preparation is key! Knowing every move we are going to make and in what order, helps us to get the best images in a very reasonable amount of time.

James’ nursery is a Paddington Bear theme with blue, red, black and gray. His mom actually brought in a Paddington Bear stuffed animal that we cut the clothes off of and were able to put on baby James. It was so so so cute!

Big sister is a beauty! She was so cute with him and so well behaved!

Mom is a Red Raider and Dad is an Ohio State Buckeye, so this was a great little set up for James!

Normally, even though we have a color scheme, I like to throw in at least 2 neutral set ups.

They also brought this Santa outfit that was to die for! It was so fun working with y’all!!!
