This was the Dammen twins first photo session with us. They are at that oh so cute, but oh so tricky to photograph age of about 3-4 months. Personality is starting to really come out, smiles are pretty easy to get, tummy time is hopefully improving, so it can be an adorable age for pictures. The main problem we run into is stamina. Usually babies this age are crying and totally worn out after about 30 minutes. So I fly and I mean fly through these set ups. Once I get a couple of cute smiles we move on. It’s like a cardio workout for me. I have found that is the only way to get a bunch of variety is to hustle through. Just make sure if you are doing a 3 or 4 month session in a studio or outdoors that the family has completely realistic expectations of how short the shooting window can be. When we do lifestyle sessions in people’s homes we can usually get a good hour out of the babies, this is always a good option for this age.

Aren’t they darling?!?!

And most of the time we squeeze in a few family shots at sessions if mom and dad are up for it! So glad that they were!

I did the Bowersock twin’s newborn session which was insanely cute and their six month session was greatness as well! Big sister was there to get in a few photos and the twins could not have been more relaxed and happy.

Their mom always picks the cutest color schemes!

We have been using these painted boards a lot for our studio shoots. They look really clean and nice and I love the look of the real wood!

The Tran family is always a blast! Reese is 9 months now and they wanted an outdoor shoot this time. They chose one of my favorite spots and Reese did great! My only complaint: the hot and sweaty ridiculous summer heat that day!

Sweet Noah is 1! We had a simple cake smash set up with tons of balloons and it is one of my favorite boy set ups we have done. Big sister Grace jumped in while Noah was changing for a few individual shots and she  was a complete ham as usual. She keeps me laughing at all of their sessions.

Big Gunner! That outfit was just perfect! He was smiley and a real trooper to deal with all the outfit changes and pictures at his age! Can’t wait to see him again in a few months!

Here are 2 more of our August newborns! First up, Emma! I was pretty excited to get to use this hat again, it’s so cute with the froggy pose. I actually recently ordered a wall print of this image and a coral polka dotted frame from Wild Sorbet that I think will be perfect for the studio. Wild Sorbet is one of the custom framing companies that we work with and they do an excellent job.

The froggy pose is one of our most requested poses.

The good news is almost every single baby can do it. (probably 90% or higher)

And even more good news: Most newborn sessions include every pose you would see here on this blog or our website, as well as 3 prop set ups. And yes, we can do this all in around 2 to 2.5 hours.

The swing prop with this drop is magic. Such a great combo. I am doing a post on newborn photography safety soon, and in case you are curious a baby is never actually swinging. It’s a composite image and baby is safe at all times.

Emma’s mom brought in this ruffled romper, the tushy up pose is my favorite for ruffled rompers and bloomers. It really showcases the baby and the outfit.

Next we have Diego! His hair and skin are amazefest. His mom brought in this cute sign, as well as the blanket we used to stuff the bucket on the yellow and gray dot shot. We love when our families bring in special props, and we LOVE when they send a picture of them to us ahead of time so we can be set up and prepped for the session. This makes the session go quicker and the setups more thought out.

 

His leg dangling down makes me happy. Diego loved to be wrapped up and didn’t want to be messed with by me very much. And that happens, and that is Ok! I am ready for any kind of baby and have back up plans for my back up plans. You will leave with gorgeous images no matter if your baby is fussy or so tired they don’t even open an eye. They don’t call me a  baby whisperer for nothing! Ha!

These color combos are perfect! The fun bucket shot just radiates sunshine and the turquoise image looks so so good with his hair and skin tone.

Meet Remy.

She is Hyde’s little sister and the newest addition to her precious family. Hyde was one of my newborns and baby’s first year babies so I am thrilled that Remy will be too! Coral, peachy pinks, gold and neutrals were the inspiration for her session. The props, fabrics and accessories I had ready for her shoot matched the fabrics of her nursery. We have a huge variety of props in the studio and can match any color scheme our clients request. We also love when our clients leave the styling of the session up to us. If you aren’t sure what you want or just want me to use what I know looks cute that is totally fine! I like to use some colorful set ups as well as some neutral and classic set ups.

 

Big brother Hyde came in the studio like a little curly haired angel. Sibling shots can be extremely challenging, but Hyde nailed it! This is one of my all time favorite sibling and newborn images. His hair, the innocent look at the camera, Remy’s position, I died 100 times over this one when I was editing this session.

Gold has been a highly requested color lately, we are loving this gold triangle drop! When I bought this curved bench prop, I was thinking it would be so easy to pose on and so perfect for newborns. No. Even with all my newborn experience, it is so tricky to get them on this bench and look as cute as Remy does.

The pale peachy pink simple shots turned out so beautiful. I really love the texture of the fluff with the wood boards.

dallas-newborn-photographer copy

This color matched the nursery perfectly and photographs so well!

I always start my newborn sessions with a simple wrapped shot to make sure the babies are settled in and sleepy. The white on the coral was greatness!

Yes! More twins! We have photographed our fair share of twins lately and lots of them have been twin girls! Big brother Evan was one of my first clients long ago, so it was really special to get to photograph his baby sisters.

Our newborn sessions with poses and props are all done in our Fort Worth photography studio. It’s a safe environment with studio lighting, the correct temperature and all the gear and props I need for the shoot as well as tons of baby products that we use during a session (diapers, wipes, saline wipes for goopy eyes, water proof pads). We do offer lifestyle newborn sessions in people’s homes, but it has a totally different look with no props or posed babies. Studio newborn sessions are by far our most popular and what we are known for.

Could there be anything cuter than newborns hugging? No.

Mom wanted some purple accents, which I think is a beautiful color for newborns.

I don’t know what it is about this pose, but 90% of the time we get a big baby smile when they are all wrapped up like this. They both gave us huge grins!

fort-worth-baby-photographer copy

Sibling photos are taken for a few minutes at the beginning of our studio newborn sessions, this can range anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on age and cooperation of the child.

Mom brought in the quilt from their nursery, so we used it as a floor drop. This is a great way to get an image that you know will perfectly match the nursery decor.

The double froggy. I do this shot as a four part composite for safety reasons. Those bracelets were just perfect for this set up!

newborn-twin-photographer-fort-worth copy

I ordered these rompers for the babies when I heard that they wanted some pink and gray images. I just love ordering new props and accessories for my newborns to make sure everything is just right.

Emery is one of our Baby’s First Year babies who had a 1 year shoot in July. Her family lives in Dallas, TX and they selected the Fort Worth Stockyards for their session. When people think Stockyards, they think country and cowboys, but it’s so much more than that. It really has more of an urban vibe in some areas, rustic in others and a wide open grassy area I also really like to shoot in. It can get really crowded, so we really prefer weekday shoots there, but we can make weekends work if we need to. I had a great time photographing Emery and her family, they are so full of love and such good parents! They didn’t want to do a full on cake smash, so they just brought a bunch of balloons so we could get more of a birthday celebration look at the end of the session.

We did lots of family shots, but this was one of my favorites. The day was scorching hot, but I’m so glad mom and dad wore jeans because they look so good in their photos. In outdoor shoots, you can’t expect the weather to always cooperate, you may be sweaty, hair could be blowing, but the end result is always beautiful!

The majority of my images I prefer in color, but black and whites can be so stunning. I normally choose about 5-10 images to edit in black and white as well as color.

Georgia was our other 1 year shoot for July. We also did some gorgeous family images, but I really wanted to showcase her pink and turquoise cake smash fun! Cake smash shoots can look just as adorable outside as they do in the studio.

fort-worth-baby-photographer copy
Georgia has huge smiles and is really a ham so she is pretty easy to photograph. If you are planning a cake smash, many moms go with the colors and theme of the first birthday party. But it doesn’t have to be. Any bright and cheery color looks so festive and nothing says “I’m 1!” like a cake smash session.

These 1 year old signs have gotten pretty popular. If you get a sign, make sure it’s not framed in glass, there will be a big glare on the glass and will look bad in pictures.
