Reid | dfw newborn photographer

It’s official … I have baby fever!  How could I not?  Look how handsome this little guy is.  I was so excited when Holly called wanting pictures of her new little guy.  I had all these grand plans, but Reid had a different agenda 🙂  After several hours he officially won the fight so I had to improvise.  I must say, I think little Reid knew what he was doing the whole time 🙂  I love what he gave us!


blog1His coloring reminds me SO much of Mia Grace when she was born, which adds to the wanting a little boy!!reid_0157bw_1Who can resist little baby yawns.  I can’t 😉  reid_0171bw_1reid_0209bw_1I love this next shot.  Holly and Ben prayed so much for this little guy and he came at the perfect time … God’s time.reid_0235bw_1Holly wanted some family pictures too.  Family photos are pretty difficult with a newborn because they are so darn tiny, but since families are kind of my niche, I really wanted to try something different.  I love the mirror on their bed so we went with it.  I’m all about natural looking family shots.  Look at those faces … do they scream “proud parent” or what?reid_0132_1

This next one is so different from my normal stuff, so it called for a unique crop and unique processing.  It’s actually a favorite image now. I love when images tell a story … from new mommy guiding new daddy through holding someone so teeny tiny to the bible over there in the corner.  love.reid_0107vintage_1reid_0036_1reid_0260c_1This image just had a vintage feel to me, so again, I tried some new things.  You have to let me know your thoughts?  I still love vibrant color, but these sweet images just really needed something unique and special.  I must admit I dont have tons of newborn experience, so I’m finding my niche with these shoots.  I really love the natural environment type images as I get to be more invloved in the shoot and all my normal wacky angles.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love my job? 🙂reid_0250vintage_1Ben and Holly, thank you so very much for letting me into your home for SO long and trusting me with your precious little boy.  He is so so so beautiful.  I must have said that a million times.  Seriously, what an amazing testament to the faithfulness of God and how humbled and honored  I am to be a part of such a magnificent journey. It was such a pleasure meeting you!  I hope these teasers hold you over.
