Newborn photographers never recommend waiting until your baby is 3 months old but if you do wait, you better have your fingers crossed she sleeps like Kavya. Kavya was 82 days old for her session. After the first 2 weeks, I find that babies start waking more and they become less flexible. The older the baby the more alert they become and that can cause challenges for newborn photographers. My goal was just to keep her happy. I focused on wrapping Kavya even though she hated it at first! Once I wrapped her (and she fussed for a bit) she fell asleep. This session lasted all of 45 minutues…..I had to move fast! She did wake up towards the end and so I took the opportunity to snap some awake shots.
Kavya, what a beautiful baby she was!
My most favorite shot:
I just loved her session!

Easy Steps to Booking your Houston and Katy Area Newborn Photography Session!
What is proofing? It means you select the images you want. You’ll receive many images but, you only select the ones you really want. The number of setups I use per session is usually determined by the package you choose. For example, if you choose the Deluxe, 12 image, package, I aim for 3 setups minimum. Less for the mini, more for the premium digital package. Once the images are taken, I do some really basic editing and send them off to you for selections.
This is what a proofing gallery looks like. These images are sent to you and keep in mind, they are not fully edited. I only edit your selections. This particular mom had opted for the premium, 20 file, package.
I’m not exactly sure how many images are there but, there’s definitely more than 20. LOL. I aim for as much variety as possible in each and every session.
From this point, mom selects her favorites. 20 were included but, mom chose 25. Additional images are $20/image and there is no limit to the amount of images you can add. My turnaround time from the time you select your images is approximately 14 business days. You select your images, I edit them and viola! Your newborn session is complete. 🙂
Here are the final, edited images from Ellianna’s gallery.
Mom received a total of 50 images: 25 color, 25 black and white conversions. These final images are delivered to you via digital download. You’ll be able to download them for 60 days and purchase prints via your online gallery, if you choose to.
I hope this helps! As always, feel free to ask any questions you may have!

Meet Kai. She was exactly 2 weeks old at the time of her newborn photography session.
Mom chose to keep her session simple with whites with soft muted blushes and creams. I loved her setups- I mean, who hates neutrals!? Timeless and elegant.
It’s hard to tell in these pictures but, Kai was a nine pound baby! She was so round and full and just absolutely gorgeous.
Her image gallery is one of my favorites ever. Take a peek at some of my favorites from her newborn session:
Headband by Goodnightmooon Props.
Bonnet by Beautiful Ewe. Gosh, I need to get more. Its so fluffy and soft and the fit is just perfect. I’m all about the baby bonnets.
That wrapped up “egg” pose will always be one of my favorites. So simple and pure and just so cute!
I love her black and white images so much! & those lashes!! <3
Thanks for stopping by! If this post can get 20 comments by July 1st, mom and dad will win a set of 5×7 prints so, leave a comment!!
Thanks for choosing me to be your Houston newborn photographer! I appreciate you.
The weather in Houston has been so nice lately- perfect for some maternity photography. While maternity is photographed year round the summer months in Houston can be brutal. Therefore, I keep these sessions are short and sweet. I offer two options: a 7 image or 12 image package. Maternity photography packages are offered as an add on to your newborn portrait package. Details can be seen by clicking here.
I love the colors mom chose for her wardrobe. Very spring time appropriate but while being simple and classic. She opted for two outfits- a floral flowing gown and a fitted lace dress….perfect choices and she was sunning in both!
I can’t wait to meet their little one!
