Baby Harper | DFW newborn photographer

I loved this session from before we headed to Colorado!  Harper was BRAND new, at only 6 days old I believe when these were taken.  She slept and curled like a little champ.

*As a side note, if you are wanting to book a newborn session, please call me while you are pregnant to book! We’ll pencil in your due date work around your new little ones arrival. The sooner you get in to see me the better because they grow so fast and stay awake much longer as each day goes by …

OK, anyway, I really loved this family!  Such great people who are so in love with their first child.  Isn’t she just gorgeous?!  I loved the few things mom brought along for her first session … isn’t that headband and tiny bracelet so cute?!

the first family photo! some parents opt to be in the newborn shoot, others dont … its really totally up to you! I love both!!

There is nothing quite like the feeling of being a new mom!

If you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, you’re aware of my loooove for baby yawns. Seriously, is there anything cuter?

Well, maybe baby smiles … 🙂

One of favorite newborn shots of all time.  Love this.

Jill and Shaun, thank you SO much for choosing me to photograph such a special time in your lives! You were both a complete joy to work with and I am eager to watch little Harper grow into the amazing little girl I know she will be.

And, to share what mom and dad chose for their art piece from the session.  A 30×30 Gallery Wrapped Canvas Collage.  These are completely custom designed to match your images!  Here were the final two. Mom chose the last one and these mock ups do the final product NO justice!!!  I cannot decide which to print for the studio!! That’s how in love with these I am!!  What do you think?

And, as a little sells pitch to prospective clients 🙂  This is just a taste of what separates a custom portrait studio from all the choices out there!  We realize what an investment custom photography is and that is why we take the ordering process seriously!  We want to love what you go home with more than you do 🙂  My philosophy is to spend your budget on something unique and invest in artwork of your family to decorate your home!  Of all the money I have personally spent over the years, the images of my family and especially my little girl (yes, I have HIRED and PAID a professional!) that are hanging on my wall have grown in value over time for me! All the 5x7s and 8x10s I’ve printed and spent money on are sadly stuffed away in drawers, etc.

Plus, seriously … what would be cuter in your newborns nursery than a huge canvas like this one on their wall??

While I always am 100% involved with the final outcome of what clients take home, I often don’t get to see the final product on the wall (and it KILLS me)!  For a limited time, I will be offering a $75 portrait credit to any past client who can send me some images of my work on their walls!  I want to see YOUR life as Art on YOUR wall … and of course, I want to share a few!
