Longview Texas Lifestyle newborn photographer: Baby R at home

Baby R is here!  [you can see his mama’s maternity session here]  He arrived into a very loving and energetic home.  He has 2 older siblings to love on him and teach him the ways of life.  :-)  He has 2 awesome parents who couldn’t be happier that he is in their arms now.

We met in their home for a lifestyle newborn session just like we had done when their little girl was born.  It was so great.  Everyone was comfortable and in their element.  I loved watching them interact with the new baby, especially big brother and sister.  Those 3 are going to have so much fun together and be great friends.

Take a look at Baby R’s in home session.

Longview Texas Family Photographer: The E Family

When I think of a dream session I imagine a beautiful location, perfect light, and clients who are up for anything.  This was that session.  The entire time we were together was an absolute dream.

I first met this family a few years ago when mom was expecting baby no.2.  Their family looks quite different now.  They are all of them beautiful, fun, energetic and kind.  I am so excited to share their session with you!  Take a look.

Longview Texas Maternity Photographer: Kamie H and family

I have had the great pleasure of getting this gorgeous mama and family in front of my lens several times now.  I so much love getting to watch families grow and change.  This family was getting ready to add another little boy  and I got to spend some time with them before he arrived.

They were so much fun and I think you can tell from these images.  Take a look.

Longview Texas Birth Photographer : The birth of Baby S

G_001rI first met this couple when that precious little girl below was just a baby bump.  They contacted me to do maternity pictures and they have called on me time and time again since then.  They are regulars of mine and have become friends.  When she told me she was expecting I was so, so excited for them.  And when we discussed me being there for the birth I was even more excited.  These are truly incredible people.  Nicer and more genuine people you will never meet.

 The birth of their second child and first son was filled with love and support.  I am so happy to share it with you.

She had such great support from family and friends who were with her the whole time.

G_005r G_007r G_008r G_009r G_010r

I had a wonderful opportunity to talk one on one with this soon to be dad of 2.  He was so calm and so excited to be welcoming their son.

G_014r G_019r

Mom was gorgeous and strong.  She was so in control and made it all look so easy.


Big sister was so comfortable and happy to be surrounded by all of the family she loves and who love her.

G_028r G_032r

I loved watching the quiet, yet supportive interaction between the mama and her mama.  They clearly have a very special bond.

When it was time to begin pushing everyone sprang into action like they do this all the time.  I was so impressed.  Dad knew exactly what to do.

And her anticipation and emotion spilled over onto me.  I had a hard time seeing through my tears.

G_092r G_102r

Dad was there to catch his son.  It was such an incredible moment.

G_104r G_108r G_111r G_114r

I can’t get over those little fingers holding so tightly to his mama.

There was so much love in this room.  This little boy will never wonder if he is loved.  Of that I am certain!

Thank you, thank you to O and D for letting me be a of your lives and allowing me into this life changing day.  Love you guys!

Tyler Texas Birth Photographer : The birth of baby C

I have known this totally cool mama since our husbands were in law school together.  We met one Sunday at church and then later that week as I sat with my first born on the balcony of my apartment,  I saw her walking her dog down the sidewalk.  Having only met her once I hesitated, unsure she would remember me, but I called out to her anyway.  She did remember me and a friendship sparked.

K_005BCr K_005r

We began walking together, she walking her dog and I pushing my first kiddo in a stroller.  She was pregnant with her first child so we bonded over the newness of motherhood.   My husband graduated and we moved out here to East Texas.  When her husband graduated he took a job about 45 minutes from us.  We’ve kept in touch over the years, celebrating in each other’s joys, accomplishments, and everyday triumphs.


K_012r K_013r K_014r K_017r

Since that first meeting she and her husband have welcomed two gorgeous children into their family.  I was thrilled to find out she was expecting a third and even more thrilled when I received a message from her asking if I would be interested in being there to document the birth.  I couldn’t say yes fast enough.

K_018r K_019r K_020r K_022r

I had been wanting to jump into the world of birth photography but was a little unsure how to begin.  I would often see pregnant women out and about and think, “Maybe I should just give her a business card and ask if she’s interested in a birth photographer?”  In the end, I felt that was just a wee bit (or a lot bit) creepy mccreeperson.  So thank you, sweet friend, for keeping me from having to harass pregnant ladies in public.

K_023r K_024r K_026r K_027r

The day finally came for the baby to arrive.  She kept in touch with me and told me when it was time to make my way.  I was so excited the whole 45 minute drive and hopeful that I wouldn’t miss anything.

K_028r K_029r K_031r K_032r K_033r

When I arrived and walked into her hospital room, it was so peaceful.  She was there with her sweet husband and mother and the vibe was so relaxed that I immediately felt at ease.  I told her my goal was to just stay quiet and out of the way, but being that we are friends and hadn’t seen each other in a while, I found myself wanting to catch up.  I kept having to remind myself to be quiet.

K_034r K_035r K_037r K_038r K_040r K_046r K_047r K_049r K_052r K_053r K_054r

The nurses came in to check her and it was time to start pushing.  I took my place at the side of her bed with her husband and her mother and got myself ready to document a miracle.  I am so happy and honored to share with you The Birth of Baby C.

 The tenderness between these two through the whole process of bringing a life into the world was just so sweet to watch.  Her husband stayed quietly by her side stroking her hair and holding her hand.  His silent support spoke louder than any boisterous cheerleading could.  It was a beautiful thing to witness.
