Joseph Daniel-17 days old MJ’s Photography

Newborn photography Houston

Meet Joe! He was such a joy to photograph. He decided to come quite a bit early, two days before his Mommy’s Maternity session to be exact! He spent around a week in the NICU. He was 17 days old when we did his newborn session. His parents say that he is pretty alert for a newborn, but he just couldn’t resist with my tactics and was on his best behavior.

Since he was sleeping so well, we posed him in a basket for his newborn portraits. I think three Joe’s could have fit inside the basket, he wasn’t quite 5 pounds yet! But with lots of fluff, he snuggled right up! I think he looks so handsome in blue.

I can’t resist newborn baby boys in a bonnet! Baby girls get the head pieces and tie backs, and little boys look adorable in knitted bonnets! I love how Joe’s little legs just curl up to his stomach!

For my sessions I provide all of the props and outfits! There is no need to bring anything, unless of course you want to!

How sweet is he in these teeny tiny overalls? I had purchased a new outfit for him to use, but he was just to teeny for it!

Look how sweet his hands are in this Ninja Turtle Portrait! Mommy and Daddy chose the top image to display on a unique wooden block for their wall! I cannot wait to see how their collage turns out! How could it not be great with how perfect this little guy is?

Here are a few more that I just have to share to with you.  Joe was gifted this amazing quilt and I love that they brought it along for him to be photographed with it.

It’s never to early to book a newborn session! I have bookings out until the end of November! I only photograph two newborn sessions per week, so book now!

Family photography Houston texas

MJ does Family photography Houston texas and she truly loves capturing the precious memories of families.

The Skala family originally inquired about getting maternity portraits done with their 15 month old daughter, Vera. She also revealed that they were expecting twins, but were waiting to find out the gender of the two babies at birth! We set up a date and two days before their appointment, she went into labor. She delivered two beautiful baby girls! Babies do not wait for anything, not even for their mother to get her Maternity portraits taken.

We switched her maternity portrait session to a family portrait session and I was so excited to capture this truly amazing part of their lives. Three baby girls under the age of two!

During their family portraits, all three baby girls did amazing. Mom and Dad were so proud of all three of their baby girls and it beamed through their faces. They sure do have a lot to be proud of!

Capturing the true personalities of families is what I strive for. Anyone can press a button on a camera, but it takes a true professional to make the images come alive. To capture love, happiness, and images that deserve to hang for everyone to see. That is my goal for every family portrait session and why I take pride in being a family photographer! Of course the newborn photographer side of me just had to capture some of just the twins!

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!

Oliver is even cute when he cries. MJ’s Photography | Weston lakes newborn photography

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

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.

Baby Jaiden | Weston lakes newborn photographer

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.

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!

Weston lakes newborn portraits – MJ’s Photography

I am a Weston lakes newborn portraits. Alisia was such a doll during her newborn session. Her mommy traveled from Temple, Texas.  She slept so well and even at the very end when she was awake, she had the cutest expressions! Daddy wasn’t able to make it down to Killeen, but he was so in love with the portraits of his brand new daughter. <3

I typically do all of my newborn sessions under two weeks of age. When babies are under two weeks, they go into these nice sleepy poses pretty easily. The older they get, the more alert they become. I have an in home studio in Katy Texas, which is where I photograph newborns and their families.

Here are some of Alisia’s newborn portraits at two weeks old.

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.

If you are in the Weston Lakes area, check out my website!

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.
