Maternity Photo Session
I had two wonderful sessions with this family. The first was a maternity photo shoot at my Texas photography studio. The second was an at-home newborn lifestyle photography session after the little ones arrived. That’s right, little ones plural. This family was lucky enough to welcome twins!
We took advantage of the beautiful weather to do our maternity session outside. Mom wore a gorgeous, sequined maternity gown that caught the light perfectly. She looked absolutely lovely! Annalisa Hastings did Mom’s hair and makeup for our maternity photos and did an amazing job, as usual. She has a gift for bringing out a woman’s natural beauty.
At Home Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session
Before the twins arrived, we scheduled a lifestyle newborn photo session for them. I love the intimacy of photographing a new baby and family in their own home. The birth of a child is such a special time, and I believe capturing it should be as pleasurable and relaxing as possible for baby and parents. This is one of the main reasons I offer at-home photo sessions for my clients. As a parent myself, I know the value of being able to have photos taken in the comfort and security of familiar surroundings.
Annalisa also did Mom’s hair and makeup for the newborn lifestyle photography session. It’s important to me that Mom feel her best in front of the camera. Even though I think all moms are beautiful, I know it can help them to feel it if they have some makeup on and their hair just right.
These sweet twin girls were the cutest things ever! Skye and Willow both had dark hair (inherited from Dad) and were picture-perfect in every sense of the term. Although we did some separate pictures, I loved getting images of the two of them together. So precious! Photographing twins is always a fun challenge. These two were great for me.
After our newborn photo session Mom ordered wall art from our selection of photos. These included an acrylic block and two museum quality canvas gallery wraps. They will look beautiful displayed in this family’s home. She also ordered two albums so the grandparents can enjoy professional photos of their sweet granddaughters.
Shannon offers newborn in-home sessions, as well as studio and outdoor sessions. We will work together to select the perfect location for your family. All outdoor sessions take place in the North Houston area prior to sunset. Newborn sessions located outside of the Houston area do require a travel fee.
Newborn sessions should be booked while you are pregnant and are best photographed 1-4 weeks after the baby is born. We will schedule a tentative date and time upfront, and then will adjust once the baby is born if we need to. The best time for a maternity session is between 28-32 weeks, when you look pregnant, and still feel great. Sessions per month are limited to guarantee the best quality and service. Be sure to reserve your date early as most clients do book 6 months in advance.
Booking Your Session
As your photographer, the goal of each and every one of of my sessions is for you to leave not only with a piece of fine art for your home, but with your family’s memories beautifully displayed in print. I will work with you to create a customized session for you and your family.
