I first met the Beck family when their oldest baby girl was just 8 months old! Mommy booked a “Mommy and Me ” portrait session and they turned out beautiful! She is now almost two and they have welcomed baby Brayden into their family! I just love getting to photograph family’s as they grow.

How perfect does he look as a squishy little bear at his newborn session? He was knocked out at this point in his newborn session, he didn’t even make a peep! I can’t even handle it! (Don’t worry this is a composite, he was very safe during the entire shot)  (Hat made by Handmade by Lori)

He was born a couple days after Independence day, so a patriotic setup was necessary! Mommy came prepared with the red, white, and blue stars and baby Brayden allowed me to pose him up in just the sweetest little curl.

He was so sweet during his newborn session. I was so excited to put him into one of my new little boy outfits from Kissing Frog. It fit him perfectly! And just look at those gorgeous little eyelashes! <3

Look at those little bitty feet! Baby feet and baby toes are oh so sweet. I just love this newborn pose because it shows off his little toes, little fingers, and of course his face!

Here are some more favorites from Brayden’s newborn portrait session. His lips and cheeks are just so squishy!

When I first met this amazing family back in October, they were a family of three and had just found out that they were expecting a new bundle of joy. Daddy was deploying within a week and half and they were moving back home for a while.

Fast forward to now, daddy got to come home and see Oliver for around 30 hours before he had to go back. I was overjoyed when she reached out to me to see if I was available to take Oliver’s newborn portraits.

He was a little over a week old during his newborn session. He took a little convincing, but he did settle and allow me to capture some amazing moments!

Since Daddy is in the Army, we had to include some military poses. Big sister Abigail had some done the same way when she was a newborn.

Big sister Abigail was perfect holding her baby brother. She gave the sweetest smiles.

I absolutely love getting to watch and capture families as they grow. It is my absolute favorite thing about my job!

Here are some more poses from Oliver’s Newborn session that I just have to share. Look at that sweet smirk!

When is the best time to book a newborn session? Weston lakes newborn photographer

Weston lakes newborn photographer | When should I book a newborn session?  – MJ’s Photography

Baby Dynver| Weston lakes newborn photographer

The best time to book your baby’s newborn session is during your pregnancy. Here is why!

You will be tired. With a new bundle of joy running the schedule in the house, you will easily forget what day of the week it is. You will want to nap any chance you get and will not have time to search for that perfect newborn photographer. If you do already have that newborn photographer picked out, but haven’t contacted them, they may already be booked or you may not get around to calling them while your baby is still young enough to be posed.

Time flies by quick. Most newborn photographers prefer to photograph newborns under 14 days old. If you wait until you are home from the hospital to book your session, the photographer might be booked during that time frame. The longer you wait, the higher the risk of them being booked. If you wait past two weeks, the sleepy poses that you see floating around on the internet, are not as possible. You may not get the photographer you want, meaning those precious moments you wanted photographed perfectly, won’t happen.

Newborns are Unpredictable.  Newborns can come early, they can come late or they can come right on time, you never know! If you wait until the very last minute, there is no guarantee that you will have time to research your newborn photographer.  So it is best to start your research early and get your photographer booked.

For MJ’s Photography, it is never to early to book. Some of my clients book me as soon as they find out that they are pregnant. They want to make sure their spot is secure and that is one less thing that they have to worry about. I typically write down their due date and make sure to keep the week before, during, and after open for their session. If their baby comes early, I adjust.

You want to make sure you budget for your newborn session. Good newborn photographers are not cheap. Professional newborn photographers are legal and pay their taxes. They are trained to handle your newborn baby safely. Most will provide everything you need for your newborn session. From outfits, to headbands and wraps, you will be covered.  Some have professional lighting in their studio, others will travel to you and prefer natural lighting. For me, I have an in home studio in Killeen, Texas equipped with professional lighting and a closet full of amazing props.

Here is an example of posing safely. This is a pose that is composite. Professional newborn photographers will NOT try to pose your baby like this without using a composite done in photoshop. Below is the final image and the two images I took to create this portrait. Safety is always a priority.

Photographing newborns takes patience and training. Make sure your precious newborn is photographed perfectly, they will never be this little again.

Best photographer in Sugar Land

I am a Newborn Photographer located in Katy Texas. Best photographer in Sugar Land.

Harlyn was just 11 days old during her newborn session. The ideal time for a newborn session is 15 days or less. During this time they are still sleepy and they really curl into all of those beautiful poses. Harlyn slept during her entire session and was such a joy to photograph.

Here are some sneak peeks from her precious newborn session taken at my studio in Central Texas.

Here are some more favorites from her newborn session. All of the beautiful head pieces are made and designed by Lucky Crickets. Below is the link to her Etsy shop.

Newborn photography in Sugarland tx

MJ’s photography does Newborn photography in Sugarland tx.

I have an in home studio where I photograph these precious newborn babies! Kannon was born at 36 weeks, on the night of his mom’s maternity portraits! He spent around a week in the NICU, but after that he was allowed to go home! Being an Aunt of a NICU baby was hard. I cannot imagine the toll that it takes on the parents. If you have ever went through it, my hat is off to you.

Once he got out of the NICU, they brought him to me for his newborn pictures. I was so excited! I had some new poses that I wanted to try out and he was the perfect model! He loves his legs right up by head, so of course the “froggy pose” was a must! For the non-photographers out there, that is the pose where they rest their chins on their hands and their feet are up by their head. Here it is below, he nailed it!

MJ’s Photography- Newborn photography in Sugarland tx

Kannon is around 2 weeks old here. Isn’t he the cutest! The froggy pose is done by taking two images and compositing them together. It is always done safely.

He was so sleepy during his session. I was able to capture a lot. Here are some more favorites from his gallery! We went on for about three hours! Look at his little smile. It was the cutest moment.

And the glasses! Aaahhhh I love it!

Mommy really wanted the pose with the aviators. I think we nailed it! Newborn sessions are some of my favorite types of sessions. I just can’t get enough of these sweet babies!

Fay’s Story-Newborn photography katy tx

MJ does Newborn photography katy tx. I was scrolling through a moms group on Facebook one evening when I saw a post by a mother who had delivered her baby girl at 26 weeks. I had just recently moved to the area and didn’t know a lot of people, but I saw her post and I knew instantly that I wanted to offer to drive to Austin from Katy, Texas to photograph sweet Fay in the NICU.  Right away Krystal responded with a yes! There were only certain times that Fay could be held. At 1 pound, you can imagine how fragile she was. If I am remembering correctly, it was around 11:30am when I got there. I remember scrubbing in to go into the NICU, talking to Fay’s dad beforehand, and then the first time I saw her. She was so tiny. She looked like a Barbie doll. But oh was she beautiful. I could see the personality in her right away! When Krystal finally got to hold her sweet girl, she busted into tears, which I did capture. What you don’t see, is me crying as well. I enjoy photographing newborns, this was a first for me.

Fay’s mom, Krystal, wrote a little bit about Fay’s story.

“Fay was born March 17, 2015 weighing only 1 lb 13 oz and 13 inches long. She was born at 26 weeks which is 14 weeks early. She spent 98 days in the NICU at St. Davids Medical Center in Austin. During that time she had 4 blood transfusion, was brought back to life on day 2, had a tear in her esophagus, was on a c-pap, NG tube to help her eat, got staff, and scolding skin. Fay stayed strong and on June 22, 2015 she came home. After bringing her home she had 3-4 doctors appointments a day until December of 2015. Fay had a NG tube(feeding tube) placed placed in September due to the fact that she was not growing as much as she should. After going through many different tests and seeing multiple doctors, the conclusion was made that Fay was going to be a slow growing baby. She would only gain 6-8 grams a day (average 20-30 grams a day) and had the NG tube removed. Now during all of this Fay has grown and developed beyond what anyone thought she ever would. She is eating one her own, crawling, has one doctors appointment a week, and is slowly catching up with babies her age. Some of her favorite things to do are feeding herself, chasing her two dogs around the house, getting into whatever she can, splashing in the bath, being read and sang to, and most of all she loves exploring the world around her. It truly is a blessing to get to watch her grow and become her own person.”

I had kept in contact with them after the session and we discussed her newborn session. I was so excited to be her Newborn photography katy tx.  After Fay’s 98 days in the NICU, she finally came home. That very next day, they brought her to my in-home studio for her newborn portrait session. I was overjoyed to see her and enjoyed her session so much! I finally got to hold her!

Fast forward to now. I was honored to be chosen as the Newborn photography katy tx to capture Fay’s First Birthday portraits. She was born on St. Patricks day, which you will see in her portraits. We took them in a gorgeous field in Katy, Texas.  She is 14 pounds and doing great!

Here are some images from her First Birthday and Cake smash session!

I finally took some time to take some pictures for me. For my soul if you will. Sometimes you just have to pick up your camera and see where it leads you. Usually it leads me straight to my two year old, Emma Lyn. I usually get her running around, as two year olds do. But this time, I wanted some close ups. Some that really capture her beauty and her soul.

Weston lakes photography

Little back story. She tells everyone, “mamma takes pictures of babies.” (although I do all portraits and not just babies lol) She is always curious about the beanbag I use for the newborns, the wraps, the outfits. Anytime I drop her off with daddy or at Mothers Day out, she says its because I am taking pictures of babies. She is obsessed!

Capturing newborn, children, and family portraits is my speciality,  I love capturing each child’s personality.

Now back to her photos. I asked her if she wanted to get on the beanbag and act like a baby for me to take pictures. Her little eyes lit up and she was so excited! So I stripped her down and swaddled her up(with a maternity gown ha ha) I placed a 12 month knitted bonnet on her and posed her! She followed my instructions and of course pretended to sleep for some. This only lasted 5 minutes, let’s be serious, she is two! But it was enough for me 🙂

Rosemary is the 3rd little girl born to this amazing family! She was such a sweetheart and gave me quite a few smiles! She was born on December 23rd and was a week old on her session date. She loved to be swaddled as most babies do 😉 Isn’t her smile the cutest thing? She did the biggest wink and smile!

I had to get it printed on a professional canvas to display at the local ultrasound place in Katy! Stork Vision.
