The Woodlands Birth Photographer | Presenting River

As a birth photographer, I see a lot of babies born throughout the year, and I have to say it is a rare treat to be able to photograph a birth where the family does not know the gender of the baby. This was baby number 3 for them , with the first two both being girls. They decided to find out at the delivery whether they would be welcoming a baby girl or a baby boy. To their absolute shock, Dad was able to announce that it was a boy. They were seriously shocked. Big sisters didn’t know what to think when they go tot meet their baby brother for the first time, but I know that has probably since changed. I really enjoyed getting to know this sweet family. Mom definitely didn’t expect to deliver so late in her pregnancy, but River was well worth the wait!!!

Thank you for letting me preserve these moments for you as your family grew by one. He is definitely a keeper!!!

Can you see the shock and awe in Dad?!?!

Houston Birth Photographer | Presenting Hugo

I was so excited when this family contacted me to be their birth photographer because it meant that I would get to follow their family from the beginning through the end. After meeting them for a client consult, we dove right in with a gender reveal session. It was more like a reveal to the rest of their friends and family since they already knew what they were having before the met me. Fast forward to sweating our booties off for their maternity session. There’s nothing like a good cool down through the sprinklers at a major Houston park at the end of a session! :) Although we thought we would get things moving and shaking after the maternity session, baby decided to take his time and make his appearance the day after Momma’s due date. Although the birth didn’t go exactly as they had planned, everyone came out happy and healthy. From there I was welcomed into their home to take Hugo’s newborn pictures. It was so inviting and relaxing and he did so well during our session. Such a wondefully fun family!!! I am so sad to say that we have come to the end of our road.

I so enjoyed getting to be a part of your birth story!

Houston Birth Photographer | Presenting Raven

This Spring was quite a change for this birth photographer with two Mommas who delivered early. This sweet girl wasn’t expected until May, but decided to make her appearance 4 weeks early. Unfortunately after many hours of pushing, baby was far from making her way into the world. After doing what she could to help Momma out, she decided that the safest thing for baby was to do a C-Section. Although this wasn’t the birth they had planed, Mom and Dad wanted to do whatever they needed to deliver her out safely. Sweet Raven was born at 9:09 pm weighing a mere 4 lbs 11 oz. Such a sweet little thing! I kept in touch with Mom and Dad over the next few weeks as Raven grew and prepared herself to be released from the NICU. I was blessed to be able to meet them at the hospital the day she got to go home to help commemorate the joyous occasion.

I am so happy to continue to make so lifelong relationships with these families and watch as they embrace parenthood and the additions to their family. I cannot wait to watch Raven grow!

I love this sweet picture of Mom and Raven just moments before being released from the hospital.
