It took a good amount of effort to get us all dressed to take some photos, but I’m so glad we did because these are precious moments that I have captured with my boys. I rarely get in front of the camera, and I want to do more of it.
It take a little bit of coaching my husband through. He’s such a good sport. I’m truly so thankful for him because he not only takes my photos when I ask him to, but also comes with me on shoots, which I truly appreciate.
The rain didn’t keep us from heading out to the Kiddie Park in San Antonio today. Although it drizzled a couple of times, the kids had a lot of fun riding the rides more than once in an almost-empty park.
This past weekend was my nephew’s Taco TWOsday birthday fiesta, and it was so fun and all the decor was so cute!
We had the choice between a crunchy taco, chalupa, or taco salad. Tables were decorated with serape runners and coke bottles with fiesta flowers.
My dad busted out the train he built 5 years ago for my niece’s 2nd birthday (We used it for Ethan’s first and 2nd birthday, too!) The kids had a blast riding it and jumping on the trampoline and moon bounce.
It was fun to dress in fiesta attire and hang out with family.
Micah’s 1st birthday party was at a local San Antonio indoor party place, Wacky Kidz, and all the guests had a lot of fun, kids and adults.
It was so fun for me to photograph this birthday party because I photographed Micah’s newborn photos a year ago, and I’ve gotten to know this family. Micah and his older brother, Caleb, are too cute and remind me a lot of my sons.
I spent a lot of time at my grandparent’s house. During the summer, my brother and I would get dropped off at my grandma’s house early in the morning and spend the day with my cousins, Alie and Davey, swimming, playing video games like Frogger, reenacting the Power Rangers, and eating ham sandwiches and Lipton sweet tea.
Those were some of my favorite childhood memories.
Seeing my niece, Raelynn, 6, my son, Ethan, 3, my nephew, Ramoncito, 2, and my newborn, Andrew with my parents, PoPo and Grandma, reminds me a lot of my childhood.
We’ve all seen the infamous “nailed it” Pinterest memes where you have a beautifully positioned newborn bundled up in a tiny basket with props on one side and on the other side, a baby awkwardly positioned. Aww pobre, they tried.
It’s quite funny, but it’s so true! Newborn photography is difficult. These fresh, yet flimsy newborns just want to be cuddled up next to mom, so moving them around to change them and swaddle them takes patience and practice. Kudos to those photographers.
I’m not one of those photographers.
I love lifestyle sessions. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the other type of newborn session, I simply prefer lifestyle sessions.
I want to celebrate motherhood this year with a beautiful shoot location! These motherhood sessions are taking place March 12, 13 and April 18. Get all dressed up, come hold your babies, and capture some beautiful, intimate moments.
Motherhood sessions are 30 minutes at one Southside San Antonio location (seen below), and you will receive 20 digital images in an online gallery. The cost is $300, and a 50% deposit is required to book.
Why Motherhood Sessions?
As I hold my new, 3-week-old baby boy, Andrew, I am reminded of how quickly these moments pass. My oldest son, Ethan, is already 3 years old, almost 4! I love capturing every detail and moment, but I don’t often get in front of the camera with my babies. I’m sure it’s the same with you, mama. I’d love to help you document this season of life with YOU in the frame!
