The Woodlands Baby Portraits – 10 on 10!

It has been a few months since I have participated in our group’s 10 on 10 blog circle.  And, like a very busy bad mom, I haven’t taken many lifestyle images of my kids lately! Instead, here are 10 images from baby L’s Woodlands baby portraits session last weekend. I needed to blog this session anyway so this is kind of cheating by killing 2 birds with one stone. She is 10 months old and is just a doll! I love this age. :)

Enjoy!

Please also follow the link below the images to see the next photographer in the blog circle!  Hope you have as much fun with this project as I do!

Houston Photographer – Client Appreciation

I don’t share a lot of personal thoughts on here, but the Super Bowl is on (I am not a sports girl) and I had some things that popped into my head that I had to write about right NOW. It is the beginning of the year and I am in the process of reviewing and revamping a few things in my business. While I am thinking about this, I am thinking about my clients, the ones that trust me and allow me to keep doing what I love. I am thinking about what they say they loved about their experience and how I can make their experience even better going forward.

Short back-story…
I waited tables for some years in college. I think everyone should have that job at some point in their lives because it teaches you service to others and what it means to really work hard, but it can be a tough industry. You can meet some amazing people, but also some that will make you run to the bathroom crying (literally, this happened more than once). I swore I would never work in the service industry again after I graduated. And now, I am working in one of the most amazing service industries there is, living my dream preserving memories for others. The difference? My clients. I am doing something I enjoy, but it’s making my clients happy that keeps me going. I am going to share a few nice things clients have said to me about their sessions, because I have really AWESOME clients. Seriously. I have received so many kind words from people over the years, but these are just a few from recent sessions.

From Allyn:
Thank you so much! These turned out great, so cute, just beautiful, exactly what I was hoping for! I can’t believe she has already changed so much since the photos were taken, which makes me even happier that we did this right in the beginning.

From Susan after seeing her sneak peek:
Awww! Love it!
Thank you again for everything today. You are so talented and tender (and patient) with the baby. Sorry baby J got you so dirty! Some day she will appreciate your hard work. :) We will look forward to seeing the rest of the pictures. I know they are going to be great.

From Emily:
I can’t breathe. I CANNOT believe you got such amazing shots with my boys. UNBELIEVABLE. They are breathtaking. Literally. I’m just overwhelmed. I know I’m such a drama queen but you are so amazingly talented. I don’t remember seeing either one of them NOT crying Saturday am. I want all of them in 16x20s. Oh wait. House is too small. But I love EVERY SINGLE ONE.

Notes like this just make me SO happy, and I hope all of my clients feel like this after their session. I know you are taking a leap of faith when you hire someone for something as personal as capturing your memories, whether it is your newborn’s first days, milestone baby sessions, or family portraits, and I want to make sure you are happy with your experience. If you have any feedback for me, whether positive reviews or things I can work on, I would love to hear from you!!

Here is a link to a feedback form to make it easy! If you have had a session with me, I would love to be able to add your testimonials to this site, or hear any suggestions you may have! To make it a little more tempting, I will draw a winner to receive a free 11×14 mounted print of your favorite image from our session. The winner will be drawn randomly on Valentine’s Day!

The Woodlands Newborn Pictures – Pretty in Purple

We’ve got Woodlands newborn pictures on the blog today!  For this session, we went with an orchid, cream and gray theme for this session to match little J’s room! I cannot wait to see her portraits hung on the walls of her nursery!  I was glad to be able to use my gray ruffle blanket that I just got. It looks so nice that I ordered more in 3 other colors. :) Just shout if you would like the same blanket used in your session.  It’s my new favorite!  Her parents had just moved into their new home in The Woodlands, just in time for her newborn pictures! I am sure it was a big undertaking to move right before your baby is born and then make time for newborn pictures, but I know her parents will be so happy they had these done! Luckily they booked these well before she arrived, which I highly recommend!

Enjoy!

Conroe Newborn Photographer – Behind the Scenes

Here are some behind the scenes of your Conroe newborn photographer at Capture the Dance Photography!  These images were from a newborn session I photographed a few months ago. My friend from Maricruz Photography was kind enough to assist me on this session and she took a few shots of me in action. This session was done on-location in the client’s home in Conroe.

There is something about a newborn session that just gets me in the zone. It is what I love and am passionate about!  Each baby is so different and sometimes it takes a little time to get acquainted and figure out what I can get out of them, what they like, what makes them “tick.” Baby C preferred to be held, but we eventually saw eye to eye. This is of course after he pooped on both of my white shirts, despite the fact that I tried to cover his bum! ;) Oh a day in the life of a newborn photographer!  It happens sometimes and I am not bothered by it, just a consequence of taking the diaper off! You can see the results of this session HERE.

Houston Newborn Photographer – So Tiny!

I love that as a Houston newborn photographer I’m typically one of the first stops parents make with their little ones.  I love getting to meet these tiny ones and document this special time in their lives. This little newborn surprised her parents by being a whole month early! She was only 2 weeks old and 5 pounds at her session. She let me pose her however I wanted and I was in Heaven! I could have played with her all day. Her family had the awesome cowhide and barbed wire basket. Sometimes I like things the clients have better than my own props! I think if makes their images special if we can incorporate some of their own belongings and pair them with my collection of props and blankets.  It was SO hard to choose my favorites from this session, she was just too perfect for me.  I loved them all!

I hope you enjoy this session as much as I did!

The Woodlands Baby Pictures – 6 Months!

Don’t miss the Woodlands baby pictures on the blog today!  How sweet is this little 6 month old? I have had a lot of newborns lately and sometimes it is fun to play with older babies! It is a much different experience and process for sure! This is such a great age for baby pictures! They are usually so expressive and once they can sit up, you can get a variety of poses from them. And, they’re not quite old enough to RUN away from me yet so we often get a lot of images from a 6 month session.  I had a great time playing with baby V. Here are just a few from her session.

I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed photographing them!  Let me know what you think!

Houston Newborn Pictures

You are going to love these Houston newborn pictures on the blog today.  This sweet girl was over 9 lbs and her gender was a surprise! I have had a lot of surprise gender babies lately and I just think that is so cool. I wish I was patient enough to have done it myself!  It’s got to be the most amazing surprise ever.  I love hearing what the gender is when the parents call me to tell me their little one has arrived and they’ll be coming to the studio soon.

She was very bright eyed for parts of her session so I got some cute expressions from her.  What an alert little one!  Don’t worry, I also got my sleepy poses too.  I’m going to start calling myself the baby whisperer because I can always figure out how to get these little ones to sleep :)

Enjoy! And, let me know what you think!

What color combination is your favorite?  I just loved the purple hat and the pink wrap.  We got to fit in a lot of different setups with this cooperative tiny one!

The Woodlands Childrens Photographer

As a Woodlands childrens photographer, I get giddy about repeat clients.  I am so excited I can finally share these images! I took pictures of these two sisters a couple years ago and this year their grandmother wanted to gift this session to their mom as a surprise for Christmas. Their mom happens to be a friend of mine and follows my page, so I had to wait to share them. Oh the patience!  The oldest little girl has been friends with my daughter since they were little babies. I love capturing them!

Wouldn’t you die for a head of curls like that!?  How beautiful are these girls!  They were an absolute blast to work with.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

This is my favorite image. I just love the expression she is giving me!

Aren’t the pink dresses spectacular!?  And the smiles on these girls is contagious.  My clients are so often newborns and I love photographing the older children as well!  We had an absolute blast!

The Woodlands Newborn Photographer

Baby C’s parents asked for bright colors in pink and teal to match their baby’s room, and I think we got that covered! I love this color combination! We got a few shots of her awake before she drifted off to sleep. She totally rocks my blue bucket. :) She did so good for me and I love these images of her sweet face. This is one of my favorites.

I just love these colors!
