Guancarlo came in at a week old and so much hair! Look at how much beautiful hair he has.

I am in love with his perfect little pose. What is cuter than a baby cuddled up on a pillow?

Katy newborn family photographer

Brothers. A forever best friend. Typically sibling photos are a hit or miss. Either big brother or sister loves holding their new baby or they want nothing to do with them. Adrian LOVES his brother and was all about posing and smiling with his baby brother. Mom had plenty to choose from.

I’m so glad mom decided to get into some portraits as well. She is simply stunning and I adore the color gown she chose to wear.

Mom loved the digital composites during our newborn session consultation beforehand, so I made sure to include a couple of sweet Guancarlo. She chose these two newborn composites and I’m so glad she did.

This sweet little pose of him and his little hand under his face…I simply cannot get enough of it. I would love to stare at it all day!

Maternity photographer Katy TX – MJ’s Photography

MJ’s Photography is located in the Fulshear area and is a Maternity photographer [that services in the ] Katy TX.

Melissa contacted me before I moved to the Katy area about her maternity and newborn portraits. Once I moved down to Houston, we had a wonderful consultation at her house in Conroe, Texas. We got to look at possible wall art locations, get to know each other, look at products, as well as try on lots of gowns! The fun part!

Melissa and her husband Kevin, decided on the Burgundy gown by Sew Trendy, the rust gown by Leah Marie Couture, and the gold gown by Abby Bella Couture.

Melissa’s favorite was the Burgundy gown. I love this gown on her. It is such a perfect color for the scenery she envisioned. She is 33 weeks and looks so perfect pregnant.

How gorgeous does she look in this forest? Her hair and makeup was done by the amazing Aventa. Check her out for all of your beauty needs!

Kevin’s favorite gown was the rust gown. He said that she looked like a “nature goddess.” I do love this one on her. It goes perfectly with the crown that she made!

cinco ranch maternity photographer

I’m obsessed with this one. This dress, this pose, and that perfect baby belly. I can’t wait to meet little Auiden. He is already so loved. The excitement his momma had just showing me his chubby little cheeks in his 4D ultrasound photo, just made me even more excited for his newborn session.

Hidden Falls in Cypress

Here are some more favorites. These maternity portraits were taken in Katy, Texas. Maternity photographer Katy TX

The last gown is the gold gown. The fancy gown as we called it. Kevin was all dressed up to match his beautiful wife. I love these so much! I would put these all over my walls if they were me!

high end cypress photographer

Kevin tossed the gown for us to give us that flowy look. On one toss he threw it completely over her head! He practiced just a little to hard for this maternity session.

Which maternity portrait is your favorite? Can you guess which one was moms favorite? I’ll post it below!

I love when moms decide to be included in the session. How often are we the one’s left taking all of the pictures of our babies and we are not in them? It’s so important to get in the portraits! Our babies are going to want to see pictures of them little with their mommy!

I know looking back at my newborn baby pictures, there are not many with my mom. I would give anything to be able to see one of her with me as a newborn. It’s such a special time for baby and for mom. Let me capture it!

Newborn photography Weston Lakes

Newborn photography is my muse. I am trained in capturing newborns safely and have taken classes in order to master my art. I specialize in newborn and maternity portraits and am located in Central Texas. I service most of Central Texas including Katy, Weston Lakes, Cypress, Houston, The Woodlands, and Spring.

Newborn photography Shreveport

All of my newborn sessions are not timed. I would never send home a baby without capturing them fully. Each baby is different and needs a different time limit. From their tiny toes to their beautiful eyelashes, everything will be captured beautifully.

Newborn photography Weston Lakes

Every newborn gallery is different. This means that different wraps, props, and backdrops are used for every baby in a different way. Your baby is unique and so should their session!

Newborn photography Weston Lakes

Parents and siblings are ALWAYS welcome. There is not a price difference for everyone to be included. What about grandmas and grandpas? Um yes! Who would ever turn them away? Bring them! Your newborn will look back at these portraits for years to come, they should include everyone you want.

Look at this one…I cannot! <3

Katy Texas newborn pictures- Matthew -MJ’s Photography

MJ’s Photography is an Katy Texas newborn photographer located in Katy, Texas. If you are looking for Katy Texas newborn pictures, contact me now.

Katy newborn pictures

Sweet Matthew’s family drove a little over an hour for his newborn pictures. I’m always honored when I am chosen to capture a little one’s very first portraits, but when they travel to me it makes it even more special.

Matthew came in at 2 weeks old with big brother Benjamin who is almost 2 years old! Both parents are also Aggies, WHOOP, so of course we hit it off right away!

Katy newborn pictures

Big brother went first. We all know that 2 year old’s lead the show, so I wanted to give him time and space to see which setup best suited him. He was completely against laying down lol, so we put little brother in a bucket and waited! Aren’t they adorable?

Katy newborn pictures Katy newborn pictures Katy newborn pictures

Here is their family shot! A couple plays of peek a boo and Benjamin was all smiles!

Katy newborn pictures

Big brother was being extra cute!

I love the singles of moms and dads. It’s such a special picture. Sweet Matthew will look back onto these when he is older, it’s an important memory to have.

Isn’t mom gorgeous?

Daddy’s boy.

We dressed little Matthew up as a bear. There is something about a newborn baby in a bear hat that makes for the cutest picture. I’m obsessed.

Look at him in this bucket! He has the most perfect profile. This is just a standard pail. Isn’t it amazing how these sweet babies can fit in there? I love using these to show their true size.

Katy newborn pictures Katy newborn pictures

And you guessed it…another bear hat! I can’t help it. Just look at him!

Katynewborn pictures

I love baby smiles, don’t we all? He gave the cutest grin and I’m so glad I captured it.

Katy newborn pictures

Oh the details. I love capturing all of their tiny details. Perfection, he is absolute perfection. Those toes!!!!

MJ’s Photography- Katy newborn pictures

Awake shots. I love awake shots. Some photographers will stop shooting and work to get them back asleep, I say capture those eyes! Eye contact isn’t the best at this age, but if you work hard enough, you can get it! Look at how cute he is.

I love including some composites in all of my galleries! I can’t wait to see these printed out!

Here are some more favorites from Matthew’s newborn gallery.

How to make delicious iced coffee at home – MJ

How to make delicious iced coffee at home – MJ

Let’s face it, we love our coffee. If I do not get my coffee in the morning, my day is done! For me, it is all about the iced coffee. Iced coffee=life. One of my favorites is Iced caramel macchiato, but the price tag on that sucker gets me every time. Let’s not even talk about the calories. Throw in a baby that screams in the car and that drive thru is a no go.

What is the solution? Making delicious iced coffee at home. Settling on the flavor is not happening. I have perfected this recipe and I am eager to share! It has been tested by friends and family and they approve.

So here it goes!

Here are all of the supplies that you will need to make this amazing iced coffee at home.

iced coffee at home

  1. One gallon cold brew coffee maker. link to amazon- Coffee brewer
  2. Coffee(duh). (2 cups) Whatever kind your heart desires
  3. One gallon pitcher(for when it is all ready)
  4. Water
  5. Caramel, Vanilla, or Hazelnut Syrup( I use sugar free)
  6. Stevia sweetener
  7. Half and half(I use fat free) or milk

First you get your 2 cups of ground coffee. Pour it into the wire mesh in the coffee brewer.

iced coffee at home

iced coffee at home

Then you pour purified water until the gallon jug is full. I do it a cup at a time. My water spout from the fridge is super intense and pushes some of the grinds through the mesh. So cup by cup it is. I fill it all the way to the tip top.

icedcoffeeathome

iced coffee at home

iced coffee at home

Put the lid on and pop it in the fridge. Leave it overnight. Its best to make it the morning after you finish your last cup, that way its ready to go for the next day!

Fast forward to the morning! Time for coffee!!! WHOOOOOO. Your whole fridge will smell amazing.

Get out your one gallon pitcher and get the brewing coffee out of the fridge. Take out the wire mesh with the coffee grinds and set it aside.( I like to put it on my plants, they are great for growth.) Now pour the coffee into the pitcher. When you only have about 1/4 left, swirl it around to get some that is stuck on the bottom off. Now your pitcher of iced coffee is ready for the week!

icedcoffeeathome

Now onto making your glass of iced coffee at home.

 

Get some ice in your favorite ice coffee mug and pour you a glass of coffee. (leave some room at the top) My favorite tumbler is Aladdin.

Pour in some half and half. I use the fat free kind for the calorie watch. ( or regular milk, whatever you prefer) I use around a 1/4 of a cup, but I don’t measure. Who has time for that.

Now grab your favorite syrup. I personally love the Torani classic caramel that is sugar free(calorie watch). I bought the Starbucks syrups first, now I just use their pumps and refill them with the Torani. Plus the Torani is cheaper, win win! They also make vanilla and Hazelnut. Pump 3 full pumps into your glass.

icedcoffeeathome

Go get one packet of the Stevia in the Raw and dump it in. I buy the packets of Stevia. No measuring required. Again zero calories here.

icedcoffeeathome

Stir it up! Now if you want you can drizzle some caramel on top. I do sometimes, but most days I skip those calories.

Now taste it!!! AAAAHHHHHHH It’s so amazing. It takes a second to make in the morning, way cheaper, and way less calories. I rarely buy coffee out anymore. Mine is too good!

 

icedcoffeeathome

Bye bye drive thru and hello iced coffee at home!

Fort Hood homecoming photographer-Emily

MJ’s Photography | Fort Hood homecoming photographer

MJ’s Photography | Fort Hood homecoming photographer

Living in a military town, Fort Hood, Texas, means that I get to capture a lot of homecoming sessions! Being a homecoming photographer allows me to relate to my clients on a personal and an emotional level. ( I cry during every single one!)

Here is how their homecoming session went.

I got there early with Emily and got to learn so much about her and her family.  He deployed pretty soon after they got married. She started learning to do ballet while she was at home,  which is so amazing! Emily said that after she got past the fact that she was in classes with young girls, it was fantastic. She moved home while her husband was deployed, which is what most military wives do since it gets lonely. She came home just in time for his homecoming ceremony.

Being a Fort Hood homecoming photographer is a blast. Sitting there waiting with them, the anticipation just builds up for the both of us. The text messages saying that they are on the bus and the announcers saying that they are almost here, just builds up on all of that excitement!

Most homecoming sessions get moved three to four times once they are scheduled. That is the hardest part about being a Fort Hood homecoming photographer. You have to be able to drop everything, rearrange other sessions, and find a sitter with only a couple of hours of notice. It is worth it in the end, but they are not for everyone!

Bow by https://www.etsy.com/shop/LuckyCrickets

Miss Aubree was a doll during her newborn portrait session with MJ’s Photography. She was so full of  beautiful smiles. Aubree had a head full of dark hair and the sweetest little dimple every time that she would smile. Her family traveled a couple of hours for her newborn session and I am so glad they did!

She rocked her “potato sack” pose. (seen above) That pose is just my favorite because it lets you see their little faces in all their glory!

Fort Bend newborn photographer

Big sister Ansley is such a happy and easy-going toddler. She was full of smiles, laughter, and fun. She adores her baby sister and was very eager to hold her for some sibling photos. Sibling photos are not always quite this easy with young toddlers.

We did some family photos before we started Aubree’s newborn session. We were tucked away in the shade in a nice little field. Newborn photographer Cypress, The woodlands newborn photographer

Such a gorgeous family with two beautiful girls!
