What is it about baby toes? So wrinkly and so precious.
Lucca was born On August 6th at 4:30pm! Momma went in after her water broke and she had a relatively easy and fast (easy for child birth anyway). We know it’s not easy!
He is a little over 8lb and the cutest brown hair
Isn’t he perfect in every way? 8lb of perfect!
Fresh 48’s are typically done within 48 hours and inside the hospital room. They can be done at home though if you prefer (especially with the rules of the hospitals in Houston, sometimes we have to mix it up). These are different than a typical newborn portrait session because they are not posed. Traditional newborn pictures include the baby being all wrapped up and posed into different positions. Most parents opt for both sessions since they are so different! Click to see the latest posed newborn session.
Look at his tiny toenails! I can’t get enough of his sweet toes.
He started waking up a little at the end, but he didn’t want to open his eyes! Too bright!
I love his little yawns!

I love his little feet in this newborn picture. Newborn portraits are usually done within two weeks of time. My favorite days to capture newborn portraits are usually 9-11 days.
He just curled up in this adorable pose and I just knew it would be a favorite.
Mom wanted beige/neutral/grays for his session and his skin tone looked perfect with them!
Look at his little smile! He is so perfect. Momma loved his little head on the pillow. I have a studio in Katy, Texas where newborn portraits are typically done. Hair and makeup is included for mom as well!
Look how perfect is profile is. I love all of the details captured in this one. They grow so fast.

It captures every little detail. MJ captures newborns in the Houston area. If you are looking to book a newborn photographer, visit me here! MJ’s Facebook

Their first family portrait. I love it so much! MJ’s Photography is a Cochran’s Crossing Village newborn photographer that works in the Katy area. Your first family portraits are so important! They are what you will remember after being sleep deprived for so long.
MJ’s Photography is a Bunker Hill Gardens photographer that specializes in newborn, maternity, and family portraits.
I had the honor of meeting this amazing family back in East Texas. Mason is their third baby girl and they wanted me to travel from Houston to Fort Worth to capture this special moment. It was worth the drive, all 3 of these sweet girls did amazing!
Look at these sweet sisters.
Guess how Mason was born? In the truck about 10 minutes from the hospital! Daddy is an ER doctor but couldn’t help because he was driving. They also waited until birth to find out her gender, so cool!
Look how gorgeous she is.
Three under three, look how precious!
The bucket pose, chin pose in the bucket is my favorite! Look how adorable she is. Momma wanted some grays in Mason’s newborn setup, which turned out perfect.
But look how cute she is in this mustard lace outfit. She is a doll! She took some soothing to get this portrait, but we got it.
Look how gorgeous this family is! Getting all three girls to cooperate wasn’t the easiest, but we did it! Which is your favorite family portrait? Bunker Hill Gardens photographer
Look at momma with her three girls. So perfect.
Newborn sessions are done within the first two weeks of birth. Between 9-17 days old is my favorite time to photograph these precious babies. This allows me to capture all of the sleepy poses that you see in my portfolio! Ones like these.
Which pose is your favorite? I think the bucket ones are my favorite. I love them from every angle. They are just the sweetest to me.
Here are some more of my favorites. There are so many!
How to maximize your gallery from a single pose during a newborn session, while still getting multiple looks!
Newborn sessions can be lengthy especially if that little one just doesn’t want to sleep for you! It is so important to maximize each pose in your newborn galleries. Doing this will help you shorten your newborn session times and still be able to get a great variety of images for your clients.
It’s all in the wrap!
After doing a couple naked poses I move onto my wrapped poses. Here is where you are going to be able to maximize each wrap! I typically do all of these wrapped poses in an hour.
The first wrapped pose that I do looks something like this. Under this brown wrap is a white basic stretch wrap. It is simple around his chest to hold his hands in place. The brown wrap is simply there for looks and to hold the feet in that cute pose.
You can see that his hands are in position to get the potato pose, I am working each wrapped pose up to the potato sack pose.
While he is wrapped, you want to get multiple angles. This also gives you the chance for your close ups and of course that coveted feet shot!
The second wrapped pose only requires you to remove the brown wrap that is placed for looks. LEAVE the white wrap that is around the hands and chest on. Change out the outward wrap and change out your bonnet/bow. Grab multiple angles from this setup as well! Below is an example.
Third look. SAME white underneath wrap is on. Baby should still be content because you have left them feeling secure with the white stretch wrap on. Here I am simply using the flokati that I am going to use for the potato sack pose. You can also use this pose to grab the eyelash shot.
Fourth look. You guessed it….I still have on the underneath white wrap. Here you can change out the outward wrap if you choose, this time mom loved neutrals, so I decided to keep the same wrap but changed to a prop to gather a better variety of poses. I added in a bowl with some white fluff and a teddy bear. (NOTE: for me it is super to easy to switch back and forth from props to beanbag due to just swiveling my light, if this is not easy for you, you will have to change up the order a little.)
I also like to grab some profile shots, baby toes, and lips!
About this time mom is done with hair and makeup. So baby is in the perfect wrap for some parent shots. I am usually done with these in less than 10 minutes. Here is just a few.
Fifth wrapped shot! Potato sack time! I know some people do not like this pose…but I am obsessed. I love this pose so much and so do all of my clients. I still have the same white underneath stretch wrap on. I am going to take a second stretch wrap and stabilize the neck and back even more with it. Then you take the third wrap(whichever wrap you want on the outside) and wrap babies feet up to their chest as well. For this session mom wanted an Heirloom album, so I love tying in the same wraps to create a beautiful cohesive album.
Sixth wrapped pose! Just put the 4th wrap over the previous potato sack poses wrap. Same flokati. Like so. Just gives an extra look and takes literally 3 minutes.
Seventh wrapped pose time! Take off the last two wraps, keeping on the two white stretch wraps. Then pick an additional wrap and bonnet to put on. My go to here is the bucket pose!
Here if baby is really asleep, I’ll pull their hands out of the wrap and get a chin pose shot in the bucket. This baby was not down for that pose, so I did chin on arms instead.
Here is an example of froggy pose in the bucket…if they stay asleep. (The first white wrap is still round their chest to make them feel secure).
This is the flow I do for every baby! Of course there will be moderations for each baby, but for the most part I still to this routine. My sessions are typically 2 hours and I get around 80 images to show at their Image reveal session.

Mommy loved the bucket poses during our pre consultation, so I had to make sure we got the perfect one.
I love Aulden in green. He is perfect here.
